ftutfntnn Thursday, January 12, I960 Open-Ear Campaign Launched By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Filra producer Joe Pasternak has launched an open-ear campaign to save mankind. "K people would just listen,'' he said, "think how much better the world would be! It could be a wonderful world. ' ! "But nobody listens any more. | "In our vocabulary there is a < period at the end o£ a sentence.; But who listens until anybody! finishes a sentence? Nobody. We | don't hear each other any more." • Pasternak, who is quite serious !, about his open-car crusade, came; here in 1921 as an immigrant youth from Hungary. He hud a high school education, but knew no English. His uncle, a factory worker, r«et him at Ellis Island and said: "You should have come 20 years aso. Torre was opportunity then. Now it is gone." "He was a fine man." said Joe. "But he was wrong. Opportunity is always here—if you know what you want to do. and love to do it." Starting: as a busboy in a studio commissary, Pasternak tried to be an actor and failed. He then worked his way up fro a fourth assistant director to become one of the world's top producers. "I got good advice—and I listened to it," he said. In 25 years his 75 films have grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. Joe is a geniaX sandy-haired, blue-eyed little man whose own struggle has left him with a deep | sympathy for the underdog. He embarked on his favorite theme—the price of not listening —at lunch when a waiter brought him boiled fish instead of the' broiled fish he had ordered. ! "He didn't listen." remarked j Joe sorrowfully. "Nobody takes the time simply to listen. "You go to a cocktail party and nobody waits to hear the punch- line of a story. They are trying to think up one to top it even be- j fore it is told. j "Think how much better the' business world would be if em-| ployes would really listen to bosses, and if bosses would really listen to their employes. "Think how much better family life would be if children would only listen to their parents, and parents would listen to their own children. "We don't listen to our doctors, our dentists, our lawyers, our teachers, our religious leaders.' Worst of all, we don't even listen any longer to our own conscience. "I don't mean we should be yes- men or puppets, but we should open our ears arid at least listen until the other person finishes his sentence. • "Thank God. my wile listened to me when I proposed. '1 love you. and I want to marry you,' I told her. If she hadn't let me finish the sentence, if she had interrupted me—well. I wouldn't have three children now." Joe looked at the boiled fish on his plate, took a bite, and sighed. "Period!" he laid. "Thanks for listening." ^^^^ Business Writing Should Be Simple AUSTIN (AP)-A Fort Worth, Star-Telegram business writ-: er says financial news should not j be written just for people who know the stock market and un-j derstand its lingo. Harold Monroe advised business reporters to always write in readable English. He spoke at a] seminar on business reporting! sponsored by the Texas Daily 1 Newspaper Association. The sem- j inar is being held at the Univer- j sity of Texas School of Journal-] ism. Frank Cortese of the Houston! Chronicle said he found writing! business news more exiiting than i reporting crime and criminal' court trials. "The only thing new about a murder is bow it was done," he said.
