I do know that none of our singers would sing for luch chicken feed as $100.000." Actujally, Metropolitan's reported top for a single performance is about $1^500, averaging perhaps less than $1,000. Lanza said he turned down the offer. He said he'll accept when the money is $150,000. but he added: ' ' "Money, it- t is nothing. •• Absolutely nothing'' to me. But unfortunately, money is the standard by which you are judged in this business." i Concern over m'oney is one of the principal causes of Lanza's two year ! retirement'.afieAbijing on top of the show business world.

Lanza will not consider them. Ho is opposed to pinging in ixight clubs. How is he going to recover his financial stability? He is starting with the TV appearances. He does one Thursday and another Nov. 18. He.plans to make personal apoearances in a few weeks. He will start off with dates with symphony orchestras in the East, singing a few songs on (he program. A full-scale concert tour will follow after he makes a movie. His agents say ,' a movie deal will be announced any day. "Whatever I make will be for. 50 per cent of the profits,' Lanza raid.
