T. 1 Weir, chairman of the board of the ". National Stee] corporation, IJsetl the '' ligbl ' of liie steel industry against •VV unionization under the labor sections i, of tlie National Recovery Act, lie was "~ frequently cited as a horrible example ' of the hard-boiled industrialist who "-. would grind •wage earners under the , - , iron heel of capital. Some, more discernnig commentators ;* : ,, attempted to point out that actually he ' " was an enlightened employer, sinccre- • ly interested in the improvement of • the conditions of labor—that he simply .. =• did not agree with the NRA method of ; ', achieving Hint result. The latter view'received a measure of substantiation recently. Led by , Carnegie-Illinois, largest of the subsidiaries of U. S. Steel, most of the < ' nation's big steel companies announced" a 10 per cent wage advance, with *••* .future wage changes, up or down, to ~ follow changes in tho cost of living. Mr. Weir ordered a \vnge advance • for emplpycs of National Steel but he didn't attempt to tic the pay of his workers lo the cost of living. ; . ' "I,cani}ot subscribe to the theory >" of -chaining wages 1 lo living costs," he said, "because if-carried lo its naliir- ; al conclusion this arrnnjrcment "would i • , halt future advances in standards of '"- living." i:.- Ho took exactly the same view that ' " _ union leaders took in attacking the ' ' Carnegie-Illinois proposal. And it is , s a sound and enlightened view. •' For :*'"-.- tlio;tying,-of, all wages lo the cost of -{•'••" living would go far toward creating . . a static economy, with prospect neither ?- for higher living standards for iu- ••- dustrial workers nor for expanding markets for the products of industry. 'Showing Off 'The story oMhc 18-year-old Detroit ybuth who told his companions he could drink a pint of whisky without, pausing for breath, gulped down the liquor in 10 minutes, and died, curries a warning for us all. To show off, to try to outdo others, • is a trait that doubtless has brought fame to many people. But it often -can result in just such a tragedy as that which befell the Detroit youth. We are "showing oil'," for instance, when \vc drive recklessly. Some of OUT OUR WAY us like to boast of having been on a 24-hour binge, or of having gone without sleep for so many hours. Others, fat, 40, and with a none too hale "ticker," like to take steps three at a time, to impress themselves or others. It is all very well to demonstrate prowess,.but be sure the cost may not be too great. OUR BOARDING HOUSE League Slmme A year from the day on which sanctions against it were imposed, Italy observed a day of "ignominy and iniquity." In the Italian viewpoint, the ignominy and iniquity were shared by the rest of the world when 52 members of the League of Nations'' assembly attempted to punish Italy for aggression against Ethiopia. •When "sanctions went into cll'cct, Mussolini, angered, classed the action as "a shame 1 against the mother of civilization." But many other people throughout the world hold the league guilty of a sin against civilization itself, and for a reason entirely the opposite of Mus--.. solini's. For by rescinding sanctions, the league abandoned an opportunity to lenrh whether war could be discouraged through the co-operation of pacific nations, a lesson that might at last have led the world toward the ways of peace.
