PERMANENT STABILITY IS
AIM OF SWEEPING CHANGES
(By Associated Press)
Chicago, Nov. 30.-Economies In
operation and increased efficiency,
estimated to reach $50,000,000 a year.
and recognition of the "open shop" on
all American railroads were fore-
cast tonight in the promulgation of re-
vised working rules governing rail-
road shop employes by the United
States Railroad Labor board.
The new rules become effective
Dec. 1, and take jurisdiction over ap-
proimately 400,000 men immediately,
although a still larger number will be
affected when the normal traffic con-
ditions are restored.
Supplant National Agreement
Far reaching changes in the rules,
which supplant the national agree-
ment made during federal control,
were designed to afford a basis for
permanent stability in the railroad
shops of the country and were de-
clared by members of the Labor board
to be the most important work yet
done by the board and of much great-
er significance than any decision in
the past, even including wage scale
Large economies are expected to re-
sult from revision of the clasisfica-
tion rules, which were made more
elastic, and hereafter will permit
members of certain crafts to do minor
fobs previously done by members of
other ,crafts. Statisticians attached
to the Labor board estimated that
economies in operation, increased ef-
ficiency and larger output, would ap-
proximate $50,000,000 a year.
Provision for Minorities
Provision for the representation of
minorities who may have grievances
is another important item of thenew
rules. Under the national agreement,
negotiation for employes was placed
almost wholly in the hands of labor
oranizations, with the result that the
railroads and many industrial and
civic institutions declared that the
agreement forced a closed union shop
on the roads. Non-union men found
it impracticable to attempt to bring
their grievances before the board and
as the rules worked out, union officials
handled the cases, taking their pre-
cedent from the national agreement
negotiations in which union officials
acted for the employes in drawing up
the agreement under federal control.

A FEW SUGGESTIONS
1. A scenario is the description of the action of
a story in its proper order, but not necessarily di-
vided into scenes of giving the detailed action.
2. Don't forget that the heart and soul of the
scenario is its story. That is the great thing, the
essential thing, and the all important thing about
the scenario. If the story is a fascinating thing of
heart-interest,.clean romance, adventure or mystery,
then your scenaro is good at heart.
3. Stories of a dramatic type are desired. Drama
makes a more definite appeal and is easier to por-
tray than comedy or farcial comedy.
4. Avoid "slap-stick" and gross comedy situations.
5. Avoid sex themes or situations developed on
the worn-out subject of the "eternal triangle."
6. Remember that language cannot be photo-
graphed, therefore avoid lengthy description. The
story must be one of action, one which may be vis-
7. Portray your characters concisely and at all
times be consistent in the development of your
8. It is suggested that the story be based on
some plot which revolves around the University.
