New Rules Needed Ecc'nomic Stabilization Director Fred M. Vinson. has," for all practical purposes, put a. Brooklyn, N. Y. war plant. ; out of business for defiance of a Na- tirnfil War Labor Board directive. In the severest governmental crack-down of the vrar, Mr. Vinson canceled all war contracts of the 15. A. Laboratories, and- shut off all its allocations and priorities of scarce materials. • The background of this defiance .- may be familiar. Last August the president, vice president and a com- milteeman of Die United Auto Workers local at the E. A. Laboratories ; were arrested in the act of receiving: SGOO from the company's president. • This payment, the company officials • charged, was demanded as the price , for ending slowdowns at the plant. All three union officers were convicted of attempted extortion, and . sentenced to a year in prison. They are now out on appeal. There was a strike at the E. A. 1 Laboratories in September. The com- i paiiy now. maintains, that the union abrogated'its contract by violating its no-strike pledge. It also refuses to ru- hire the three convicted union officials, ; or to continue negotiations if they arc .to be present as representatives of the ; workers. This is in defiance of the WI.,1! or• der to. resume operations on the same •-• contract and employment basis as prc- •> vailed before'the strike. In view of the ", union officials' 'record, the WLB ruling,: might seem open to question, and the " company's defiance to be not wholly ;; unreasonable. ~ . In imposing these sanctions, Mr. •-- Vinson called .upon Congress to enact J legislation which would substitute -.: statutory rather than executive action ;• to enforce. WLB orders. It is doubtful ." that Mr. Vinson could have chosen a :," better way of goading Congress into '\ action than by this drastic step. 7 Of course, it's a little tough on the ;;;E. A. Laboratories, which has lost its •_ Army and Navy business and most of V its material for producing civilian x goods. But perhaps the company will ...consider that it'has fallen in a right' ecus cause. ' " '• Surely its .fate adds force to the al/ ready urgent demand that the WLB be •• given authority to enforce its directives —authority that can be applied to •'-.cither party of a dispute with equal •..justice, authoiity that isn't Dependent I on the caprice of some outside department or official, and that is reviewable •• by the courts. cidentnl music and about a half-minute of singing in its present Broadway production. Because of this ruling, the play's producers must now employ 1C musicians in the pit at ?S2 a week, instead of 12 musicians at fjliS. That adds $G!)2 to (lie producers' weekly ove-rhead. But we still think that they're (he winner, and that they probably ought to drop Local 802 a note <jf thanks. For the union's decision will put the play in a new light for most of us. Of course, there are some who claim that "The Tempest''' is Shakespeare's greatest play. But they're the highbrow minority who like their Shakc- spfitrc in (lie library, not on the stage, and who don't mean a nickel at the box- office. Bui there must b l; thousands of us who suffered exposure to "The Tem- prst" in school, and who survived it with I he feeling || 1; ,t here was probably :is dull a dish of mystic double- talk an ever was entombed among the classics. And if we chanced upon the average stage performance of the "com«!y," our feeling was doubled—in spades. Now ;>. little smart showmanship might change all thai: "The Tempest . . . scintillating . . . .sparkling . . . the gayest musical on Broadway. Music by David Diamond. Book & Lyrics by W. Shakespeare." Yes sir, a little canny exploitation and the producers can clean up, thanks to Local 802.

As composer and pianist, he wis a vigorous innovator. He had even dared, it was said, lo strike the keys with his nose! Whatever (he truth of that, he had indeed explored the possibilities of the pianoforte beyond imylhiug ever before iitlcnipted. Unt his renown w;is not limited either !o his dexterity as n pianist nor lo his genius as a composer. Paris was nt his feel. No woman it £l:nnor enjoyed greater porni- •arily. There was not a Duchess •n all the France of Louis Philippe •vho would not hnve been proud io say, "Franz Liszl is mine." The noblest, the most beautiful women :,f Europe had sought his attention. The most talenled men in music, literature and art called him friend. There was not a salon in Palis (o which this hon vivant was not welcome. Frederic's heart pounded. His mouth was agapo. Ilis eyes feasted from afar on Franz Liszl. II was his, Chopin's music, that was guiding the fingers of this immortal!
