T'tyO PARALLEL STATEMENTS KY BIG PRODUCERS In an Interview on the sit-down strike, Alfred Sloan of (.lie General Motors, nincle this observation: "The people have got lo act out of their tlvj Idea they can work less and luive m'Ore as a result,"' he declared. "Tin; only way to wealth Is through production rather than vacationing." On the same siihjert. Henry Ford is quotr-d liv an interview by Samuel Crowlher as saying: "Production and the effects of production give the answer to prucUcally all the thiims that trouble us. They answer the question of- supply; you can't {five the people what they need except by production. They answer the question of wages; you can't pay wages except by volume of production." 'Ford further stated, "The big thing for the country to keep its mind on i.s production. Now. you say that and keep saying it. but somehow it doesn't seem to register. There i.s talk of prices, of restrictions and control, but not about production, and yet it is only production that can cure the conditions of which these discussions of price, and so forth, are the symptoms." While the practical men know that we must have production and more and more production, our politicians and public educators think this is a card table game; that we can take from one and give to another; thai, we can eat up the seed corn; take the tools away from the men who produce most rapidly and all live better. We can. of course, for the moment, but each succeeding year we must do without what we so badly need. The real question is a question of intelligent education, not the popular wish-education. WELCOME TINKLE Whatever current wage increases may do in the direction of causing an unhealthful rise in commodity prices, they at least seem to be immensely stimulating for the time-being, to the consumers' goods trade. A dispatch from Pittsburgh remarks that stores all through the steel district are feeling the effects of steal's new wage increases. Near the great Jones & Laughlin mill, for instance, Where 25,000 workers cashed fatter checks, "beauty shops, barber shops, food stores, poolrooms, saloons, and liquor stores rang up banner sales on their cash registers." After the long, lean years, those tinkling cash registers do have a welcome and musical sound. WASHINGTON LETTER By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON—John L. Lewis is rapidly being transformed into an act of congress. That may be carrying an analogy far, but not too far. Actually he has been stuffed into the new revised Guifey bill to take the place of the part carved out by the Supreme Court. There is no provision in it for labor, or seemingly none. Yet congress confidently expects that John L. Lewis will see to it that labor gets its' cut out of an improvement in the bituminous coal industry brought about through authority to regulate prices and production. His recent success in getting a pay raise for his miners indicates the Lewis part ot the Cluffey- Lewis act will work. * * * Just to make certain Lewis and his miners will have a hand in developments, the bill provides that a labor representative sit on each of'the 23 district boards it creates. The coal industry will provide the other two. These boards will have authority to bring together all the factors going into determining the cost of production of coal. Recommendations of these bo'ards then are to be given special weight by the federal bituminous coal commission in saying what should be the minimum price of coal at' ; the mine. To the labor spokesman on each board will fall the job of including a fair wage for labor in' the cost of coal. Back of him will be John L. Lewis and his miners. * * * To finance the act a tax of one cent a ton on coal at the mine is imposed. This is roughly one-half of one per cent of the usual $2 a ton mine price. Jf any coal mine owner refuses to abide by terms of the act and insists on mining as much as'-he likes and selling at cut rates if lie likes, the law provides a 20 per cent penalty tax. There is another provision in the bill designed to protect consumers. If the coal mines should attempt to take advantage of an emerg- erjjpy shortage of coal and hike prices upward, •the federal .coal commission can impose a price cepingr beyond which prices may not climb. tfust how nicely the federal board can bal- artce --production against consumption will be g^coverelj only' by 'experience. Days like yesterday, coming at this time Of the year, get you down If yon don't watch out. . . It was summery and the old mercury went on a climbing'spree far into the eighties during mid-afternoon. . . Trees and bushes are budding. . .Songbirds singing . . . That strange feeling was in the air ... Personally, we leaned back and had visions of the old swlmmin' hole of boyhood days, and that fishin' spot where grandpop used to take us down along the lazy Auglaize that snakes its way through Ohio. Those wore grandiose days . . . Grandpop was a grand eld man. and he was a kid right up until the time he was 75 years old when he died. . . We'll bet if there i.s good fishing in Heaven, grandpop is right up there on the bank pulling in his share of them. . . He was the kind of a man who didn't want any tear-jerking after he was gone. . . He let you know long before he died that when he did die there was no use worrying about him. he- cause when lie got on the other side he was g'.iriff lo make the best of things and get the most out of life there, just as he did here on this side. . . His was a pretty good philosophy. . . He worked hard, but he enjoyed what he accumulated through his working. . . When vacation time rame and fish were beckoning from some sporty stream, grandpop didn't disappoint them. Grandpop was reared on n farm, and he never lived in the city. . . Why. we can remember that it was a four-man job to hold us back at the end of school terms each spring, so we could break away from town and start the trip out to his farm. . . He always knew we'd be there, too. . . He never missed Having all the necessary gadgets in .ship-shape . . . There would be new fishing tackle, new bumboos and just everything that was needed to make fishing- trips successful. . . Three grl- den summer months we'd spend out there on the farm. . . Grandpop made them the .happiest months we ever knew. . . Of course, grandmother (bless her souli had her .share in the program, too—but, grandpop was the head-man in making most of the arrangements . . . Ah, what reminiscences! . . . Days like yesterday bring them to mind, if you will pardon the interlude. Hot weather also brings to mind a summertime luxury we soon shall be able to resume. . . It's the drinking of iced coffee. . . There is something we admire about a glass of iced coffee. . . It's beauty is to be admired. . . Its flavor is to be admired. . . On top of that, nfter we drink it—we're in a right admirable incod. . . Do you suppose it's that Admiration coffee we've been drinking? . . . Somebody just reported that it is now 89 in the shade. We are taking time out here to get a glass of iced coffee. . . Excuse it, please. C. L. Sholes, printer and editor', is credited with the invention of the typewriter. . .

KEA Man About Manhattan By GEORGE TUCKER YORK—The opening of the ; "King Cole" bar at the St. Regis I brings back a bit of the sentimental, j rococo part of New York that has j been missing a long time. Surely you remember mis extraordinary Maxfield Parrish mural which used to hank in the okl Knickerbocker, at 42nd street and Broadway, where Ca- , ruso was wont to have his .spaghetti | and Diamond Jim Brady his orange juice—where George M. Cohan, the late D^Wolf Hopper and other of like celebrity tarried under the affectionate gaze of the old monarch. John Jacob A.stor paid Parrish $50.000 to paint this canvas especially for the Knickerbocker bar What is more important, it quickly became famous, and now there i.s no price that could lure it away frim thf Astor estate, so great has become its sentimental value. Astor was appreciative of the work his friend had clone, and several months after old "Cole" had proved the town's delight he sent him an additional check for $10.000 just as a measure of appreciation. This wa.« in 1905. and the King still hung there until prohibition drove most of New York behind closed doors. Later the King bobbed up at various places, but never entirely compatible. Then, when the Astors decided t,o bring the old King out again, they built the bar especially for him—that i.s the hung the mural and then built the bar around it. A minor problem at the time was the 30 years' accumulation of dirt on the classic features of the monarch, his fiddlers, pages, guards, and assembly. Usually varnish remover is the cleaning agent for such canvases. Had they gone ahead with these plans', tragedy would have .resulted. In mixing his paints, Parish used varnish instead of oil. It doesn't take much imagination to guess what would happen if the remover had been daubed on the canvas. As a matter of fact, the artist was compelled, grumbling every step of the way, to quit his Vermont hide-away and come to New York to oversee its cleaning. With fitting ceremony the old King was undraped and most of the town's better artists, close friends of the monarch and of Parrish, dropped around to make obeisance and reaffirm their allegiance. Among those have been Carl Mueller, James Montgomery Flagg, Dean Cornwall, McClelland Barclay, John LaGatta, Bradshaw Grandell. .Each lifts a mug of foaming brew to his highness on the • wall—certainly the finest and most sentimentally treasured mural of its kind iiv existence today. AUTOMATIC' COMPASS TELLS PLANE'S POSITION. WASHINGTON (/Pi — Almost instantaneous determination of the position of an airplane in space is possible,- say raido engineers, with a new French automatic compass. The device,- recently demonstrated before government officials for the first 1 time in the United States, makes it possible for a pilot to fly continuously toward any radio station or, by "sighting" on two stations, to determine his exact position. STUDENTS GET CREDIT FOR FISHING. People You Know By ARCHER FULLTNGIM ' See Black Duster picture on Page 7. What were you doing two years ago Wednesday? You remember two years ago April 14! It was on a SuncTa- tincr ws" th" aft,»r- iioon of the Black Duster. There never was, never lias and probably never will be one like it. The morning after, a number of people left the pampas for good, they said, but most of them have come back. That afternoon was the prettiest day of the spring. It was the first day in weeks in which no dust had blown There was scarcely a breeze. Early that clay people saw the day was going to be fine, so they went for long drives over the country. The golf course was crowded . . . The sun was about two hours high when a boiling blue-black cloud appeared on the north horizon. When it hit the cemetery one could see small birds flying frantically in front of the dust, and rabbits running before it. Tumble- • weeds that had been sucked up in the maw of the cloud could be seen (see Ben Guill's play, "Dust," for description). . . A man put on one shoe in broad daylight; when he reached for the other one he could not see it. In a flash it was as black as moonless midnight. On North Russell street a woman ran into the street and knelt to pray—she thought the world had come to its end . . . We sat in the house and decided to play cards, but the dust choked us. Then we got wet cloths, then we said, "where is our sense of humor?" so we laughed and everything was much better. AROUND HOLLYWOOD STILL WATER, Okla.

The average film chorine often has' a scrapbook that bulges with newspaper and magazine clippings. The average young leading man can be a very fine actor and yet net only a minor niche in the Hollywood goldfish bowl. Every studio has boys like this: nice guys, excellent, or fair-tp-mid- dllng actors who never swain the Hellespont, set a new .style, or got engaged to an actress—in short, just nice RUV.S. A lot of them, like Gordon Oliver and Dick Purcell. can trace their ancestry 'way back. Oliver's antecedents include Charles II. and Purcell's the Irish barons of Loughmoe. (So what?) Both play leads, are pretty good actors, athletic, have nice personalities, and good toothpaste smiles. But what's a masculine smile compared to a feminine leg as an eye-snatcher? 'Legs Bring Fan Mail But the gals! A pretty girl is like a melody to the cameras, and a pretty leg—on star or chorine or beginner—is twice as. tuneful. Toby Wing got fan mail, on bathing beauty stills, long before she made a movie, Rochelle Hudson, decked out for a swim; long has geen good for space.

Edited by DR. IAGO GALDSTON for the New York Acndomy of Medicine TREATING ABRASIONS Abrasions are nasty minor injuries. They are dirty, dangerous and painful. Because abrasions invariably have some foreign materials ground into them, they must be thoroughly cleaned. Cleansing destroys the bacteria present, and removes the inert ert matter. The latter, if left in the denuded skin, may become incorporated within the healed tissues and result in skin stains, or "tattoo marks." When the abrasions are multiple and involve more than three or four square inches of skin, it is -wiser not to "home treat" them. The cleansing required will prove painful, and few patients will be Spartan enough to do a thorough job. The doctor, tho sympathetic, will make certain that the cleansing is complete. And he can, when necessary, utilize local anaesthetics to reduce the pain. Also, the hazards of tetanus and of gas bacillus infection must be borne in mind. These can be obviated by suitable prophylactic injections. To cleanse abrasions, use soap and water. If they are contaminated with grease and oil, first wash them with benzine. Liquid green soap is to -be preferred to ordinary soap. Wash from the center of the abrasion toward its edges. Otherwise the denuded skin area is likely to become further contaminated with the dirt and bacteria collected on the surrounding parts. ' Begin by cleansing the skin around the abrasion. Having washed these parts thoroughly proceed to the cleaning of the injured part. Of course, you will discard the cotton or gauze used, and start with clean materials. A clean shaving brush, together with plenty of green soap and warm water (worked gently over the abrasion) will facilitate the removal of dirt. When the abrased area looks clea/i, apply tincture of iodine. Wash off the iodine, when it has dried, with alcohol. Apply to the abrasion-a layer of gauze' to which has been applied some zinc oxide, or ammoniated mercury salve. Cover this with another layer of gauze and fix, not too tightly, with adhesive tape, or a bandage. ' If'the Inflammation increases, or the surrounding skin becomes red- • dened, painful and swollen, or fever and malaise develop, be suspicious of complications and call a doctor at once. just moseys along, 'from picture to picture, he isn't likely to need a new scrapbook immediately. Wayne Morris escaped from the "nice guy" rut because his unusual grin was an "angle." Also, he got choice parts. Michael Whalen had an unusual "struggle" story 'besides his looks and good parts. Franchot Tone, from the stage, was in the spotlight virtually from the start. Holly- 'wood heard the future Mrs. Tone was interested in her new leading man.

What is the largest water reservoir now in the Brazos River watershed? A. Lake Cisco, on Sandy Creek, Eastland county, near Cisco, built in 1923 by Cisco for a municipal water supply and pleasure resort. It has a surface of 1.000 acres, and impounds 45,000 acre feet of water. The dam is 118 feet high, is of concrete and is one of the most massive concrete structures in Texas. Q. What is the largest river in the world contained wholly within one political division? A. The Brazos, with a drainage area of 41,100 square miles, lying wholly within Texas. Q. When was Denton county organized, for whom named and what was the first county seat? A. Denton county was organized in 1846 from Fannin County, with Alton, on Hickory creek, about six miles from the present town of Denton, the county seat. The county was named for John B. Denton who was killed by Indians on Denton creek. After Denton. also named for Denton, was chosen as the county capitol, Alton lost its importance as a town. Q. With what bandit gang was Seba Barnes connected and what became of him? A. He was with Sam Bass in most of the Bass gang stage and train robberies in Texas and was killed with him at Round Rock where they had gone to rob a bank. Q. When did the "Greenback" party attain its greatest > political strength in Texas? A. In 1882, when G. W. (Wash) Jones, of Bastrop, the party's candidate for governor, received 102,000 votes against 150,000 cast for John Ireland, the Democratic candidate.

Stoyanow, University of Arizona geologist, believes the recent discovery of a dinosaur skeleton in southeastern Arizona may prove of great value to modern prospectors hunting "lost veins" of valuable ore. The find, he said, will afford practical aid to miners dealing with the vagaries of rock strata, jumbled in prehistoric upheavals. The skeleton was the first proof that the geological formation of the area where the bones lie was of the cretaceous period. Prior to the discovery many geologists believed the area was of the tertiary period millions of years later. Dr.'Stowanow explained the value of the discovery to miners thus: "Often a vein of ore will run out; that is, the geologic period formation in which is existed is broken off, and the vein is 'lost.' If the miner knows' to what period the vein be- Icmged and can then find within a reasonable' distance strata 'of the same period, he stand^ a good chance of recovering the vein or finding similar ore formation." GROCER SAYS BREAKFAST IS ON THE DECLINE. HUMBOLDT, la. (/P)—One Humboldt grocer 'bewails the fact that the "good old fashioned American breakfast" has declined.
