Income Is No Gauge of Man's Worth While all the sliotiliiiK aliout driiii' nuivics is goiiitf on, it is intcresliiij; lo take a yKKik ;il tlm fiiels about moving picture salaries, us revealed recently by an elaborate NKA report. This show.-; that, although the industry as a whole -suffered a luss of more than ¥10,000,000 last year, it paid to no fewer than 111) persons salaries larger than ihe salary received by the president nf the United States—which is ?75,000 a year. Ono aelor drew down $315,000 Tor his year's work—Ihc peak of the lot. Another—whether an actor or an actress is not sltiled—-Bol $2%,2o(> Tor Ihe year. Considering one thing along- with another, and comparing Ihe social useful ness and intellecttiiil ability of a movie actor with a president of the United Stales, all of this seems more Hum passing (Hid. Bgl Sol Kosenblall, the NKA division adminislralor who made the survey, points out that il ail happens according to economic -law. • * * * "No salary," he says, "is excessive if the.picture produced by the individual receiving (he salary meets with uiiu.siiiil public favor as a result of imi(|uc direction or artistry." So there is no sense, in getting iu- ilij;n.inl about this situation. A movie actor, or a pvi/.c lighter, or blues singer, may get jtoiirt. more than the president of the nation—bill. Ihc fault lies with Ihe economic system, and not with the industry involved. Kor (here is, and there can be, unly one way of gauging a man's worlli, as far as his pay check is concerned- H depends solely on how much he is worth to Ihe stockholders in hard cash. This leads lo some peculiar situations, very often. H gives to a .Madame Curie only Hit; mosl modest of rewards, and makes a Sir Uiisil Xaharolf one of the world's richest men. 11 makes a millionaire out of a Jack Dompsey and leaves a Jane Addams the income of a good clerk. It enriches a Charley Mitchell and leaves a Senator Morris with nothing but a ' competence. But Hie fault is the fault of the whole, and not of the parts. U is silly to critici/e the munitions industry, or the prize lighting nickel, or .llie banking business, for these things. That's the kind of world we live in; what a man gets IIHS no relation whatever to his usefulness to his fellow men. —Bruce Cation. On S t ea and in Air The British cabinet is reported to have agreed on a plan to double I lie six.e of fhe British air force in Ihe near future, so that the country will have an air fleet capable of handling Unit of any nation within striking distance. 11 is possible to see in this decision a reflection of that ancient Rrilish policy which for centuries has kept the British navy supreme on the seas. Kngland is an island close to Kurope- At any time within UK; last 200 years, the nation could have been crushed by any continental power [xissessing » stronger (leet. The British, realizing this, insisted that their navy always be strong enough to cope with any piif-'sible European foe. Now (he; introduction of aerial warfare has changed Ihe picture. It wmdd hardly be surprising if iji Ihe near future the old British naval policy wen: extended U> the lield of aviation as well. The recent cabinet decision looks like a step in that direction. Justice by Surgery Last March a Chicago women tiled a suit for divorce, charging thai Ihe husband she had married in January was cruel, irritable, and generally cantankerous to such extent that there was no living with him. .Shortly-after the suit was filed, the husband underwent a thyroid operation. And a short time later his lawyer begged the courl to delay the trial, asserting that tin; operation had so changed the husband's disposition that a happy married life ought to be possible. The court consented, and the wife returned to her husband for a two-week test iwriud. Now the divorce suil has been withdrawn. Thi! husband, it seems, had been mean anil ugly because of a toxic thyroid condition- That condition having been relieved by surgery, bis wift; now finds thai he is a pleasant and companionable sort of chap—and she no longer wants to divorce him. How many other "mean dispositions," -one wonders, might not be remedied by a little timely medical attention? THUKSDAY, JULY 26, 15 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ached at all.
