Ot Wage-Hour Laws...
W ITH THE WAGES and Hours Bill
referred to a conference committee
after having been carried victoriously through
the House by a remarkable majority, the obsti-
nate difficulties that so far have blocked federal
legislation seem to be on the road to solution.
Formidable changes have been wrought already
in the fabric of the bill, innumerable rewritings
have thinned its substance to a watery imitation
of the original and further alterations will un-
doubtedly be designed by the present compromise
body. The outline of the final law seems to be
drawn, however, and its shape, and the picture,
in perspective, of the long battle to get the bill
through poses this question: what has the broil
Both the House and Senate bills propose an
eventual forty-hour week at forty cents an hour.
The House bill automatically would bring these
levels to all industries after three years. The
Senate bill provides for a Labor Standards Board
with the power to determine where and when
the standards are to be applied. It seems clear
from reports from Washington that the com-
promise measure will introduce the House stand-
ards and at the same time will make provision
for the exemption of certain industries from
the arbitrary standards proposed in the House
bill. What remains to be settled is whether the
bill itself should contain the exemptions or whe-
ther a Board with broad investigatory powers
should be created to determine which indus-
tries should be exempted and for how long.
Neither method is faultless. The choice, in either
case, is not very significant. What is significant
is that there will be a flexible provision in the
The distinction between the exploiter and the
exploited in the sweated industries, especially,
is often a tenuous one. That labor is exploited
in any cases for the profit of the middle-class
entrepreneur cannot be denied; that the margin
of profit in other sweated industries is too nar-
row even to allow a fair return on the labor of
the small factory owner is also a platitude.
Further, the arbitrary application of uniform
wage standards all over the country without
respect to regional peculiarities, the mandatory
rise in pay applied to little man and big, regard-
less of their position in regard to raw materials,
markets or transportation, would undoubtedly
operate to force certain marginal producers out
of business. Thus the compromise measure that
promises to emerge shortly from the conference
committee, it seems likely, will combine even
standards with provision for individual pecul-
iarities of industries and sections of the country.
And so, in the "American Way," the United

union recognition and wage and hour agree-
.ments; collective bargaining means machinery
for the settlement of the hundreds of petty dis-
putes, machinery to develop satisfied labor. And
satisfied labor is efficient labor. Grievances, lay-
offs, seniority rights, rumors of proposed speed-
ups and complaints about working conditions
and sanitary provisions are. all minor matters;
but when they are not settled amicably around
a conference table, the employe feels that he
is a little more than a cog, little more than an-
other automaton in a gargantuan machine. The
effect of this "employe disgruntlement" on plant
efficiency has been more costly to many pro-
ducers than the more open manifestation of the
same cancer in strikes and slow-ups.
But even in the question of wages and hours,
it is obvious that federal legislation can do no
more than set general minima and maxima for
various industries and sections of the, country.
It is hardly possible or desirable for the govern-
ment to alter its levels from plant to plant. They
must remain the function of collective bargain-
However, the main function of collective bar-
gaining in respect to wage-hour regulation must
be to prevent.the minimum wage from becoming
the maximum. Forty hours a week at forty cents
per hour equals 16 dollars per week. Even were
work in all the industries affected year-around
work, the income is hardly impressive. It re-
mains for organized labor, through collective
bargaining as approved by the Wagner Act, to
bring "to him who works a more just share of
that which he produces."

x''464 The Lord
THE LATE CHRISTOPHER BEAN, a comedy in
three acts adapted,.by Sidney Howard from the
French of Rene Faucho. Starring Paulne Lord.
At the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
By NORMAN KIELL
After spluttering about on bad spark plugs
for the past two weeks, the Ann Arbor Dramatic
Season finally hit all six cylinders with the pres-
entation of Pauline Lord in Sidney Howard's
adaptation of "The Late Christopher Bean." It
is a far cry from Mr. Howard's work seen earlier
in the season; it is only too evident that the play-
wright is -at his best when he is adapting, and
not creating, original works.
Mr. Howard has transplanted Rene Fauchois's
French characters and locale to a New England
doctor's household, thoroughly Americanizing
his people and situations to meet them for an
American audience and accomplishing it with
humor and rich invention.
Christopher Bean, painter, drunkard, indigent,
deceased, received no recognition during his life-
time for his artistry except by Abby, the faithful
servant in Dr. Haggett's household. He was
scorned upon and derided; everyone thought
his paintings terrible. Ad; Haggett, the doctor's
daughter, painted buttercups on the reverse
side of Bean's creations; the doctor covered the
inside of his chicken coop with one of Bean's
oils. Only Abby thought enough of him to hang
a portrait he drew of her in her room.
But ten years after Bean dies, the world sud-
denly becomes conscious of his greatness and the
art mongers and collectors pour in on Dr. Hag-
gett's country household and the cheating, swin-1
dling and bargaining for the art works begins.
The bewildered doctor is broached with offers to
forge Bean's work which are believed to be lost;
to sell Abby's portrait-which doesn't belong to
him. But that is giving away half the story
and my advice is to see it for yourself.
Mr. Howard capitalizes on the humor of the
situation wherever he can find it and although
his strokes are broad, they are adroit. His in-
terpretation of the avarice of a Yankee family
is frequently hilarious. Dr. Haggett's transfig-
uration from a hater of greed to a lover of
gold is done with relish and the thrusts at the
girl on the marriage market are well-taken.
Abby, the faithful servant girl of the Haggett
household, is played by Pauline Lord, and Miss
Lord has genius in her acting. *'She plays the
part with a quiet skill while at Ihe same time
being thoroughly animated. A word here, a
thrust there, and beneath the outward appear-
ance of a drudge, she shows us an honesty and
simple depth of character that bespeaks tender-
ness and illuminating beauty. It is truly a beau-
tifully conceived interpretation, notably free of
Carl Benton Reid, as the harassed doctor of
the quiet country home suddenly gone berserk,
and Georgia Harvey as his tart-lipped wife, give
excellent performances, especially the former.-
Mr. Reid plays his role with mellowness and
schooled instinct. Edgar Kent, as the scavenging
dealer in art, Frederic Tozere as a fast-talking
swindler, and Rebecca Tarwater as the redeem-
ing member of the Haggett family, stood out like
oases in a desert in the minor roles.
Agnes Morgan, the play's director, was amply
rewarded by the recognition accorded her by
last night's audience-an audience that did not
sit on their colective hands, but used them for
long, loud and deserving applause. Emeline
Roche's single set served the mood of the play
Burns And Scott
THE WEEKLY Literary,. Supplement of the
Times of London lately devoted its twelve
pages to the literature of Scotland, present and
post. Its articles recognize "the Scottish Renais-
sance of the last ten to fifteen years," but point
out also that, although not "subservient to the
doctrines of the post-war world" and rarely using
"techniques of morbid psychology," the mood of
A. That is correct.
Q. Is there anything novel in the fact that
the, administration prefers Democrats who will
support its plans rather than Democrats who
are in opposition?
A. There is nothing novel in that. Every
President wants to see his friends elected and
his foes licked. That is not only politics but
Q.. Is the
I want to begin with some kindergarten ques-
* * *
In Timhes Past
Q. But I mean have other Presidents exerted
any pressure within the party to help one op-
ponent against another?
A. Of course they all have, but various types
of tactics and strategy have been employed.
Q. But Mr. Roosevelt has stated that he has
taken no part in the primaries of the Democratic
party. Wouldn't you call that a prevarication?
A. I would prefer to call it horse feathers. It
is said for the sake of the record. In this respect
Mr. Roosevelt is merely following an ancient
customa All Presidents petend to be neutral
and assert that they love their foes just as much
as their friends. You can hardly call such
statements prevarications, because nobody be-
lieves them or is expected to believe them,
Q. But don't you think it was a terrible thing
for James Roosevelt, the son of the President,
to declare in an impulsive moment for Pepper
in the Florida primary?
A. Rollo, you are now going on 10 and taking
size 13 pants. Be your age. That was no im-
pulsive moment. James Roosevelt had his as-.
signment. He was not strutting his own stuff.
Q. And is the same thing true of Ickes'
declaration in regard to the Oregon primary
and Harry Hopkins' statement about Killette in
A. The same thing is true.
A Call For Candour
Q. But why does there have to be all this
flub-dub about it on both sides? Why can't a
President openly come out and say, "I think that
Mr. So and So, the gentleman from such and
such a State, is a representative of reactionary
interests, and I hope he gets a terrific trimming
from the able young man running against him"?
Wouldn't it be perfectly logical for a President
to point out that in his function as leader of his
own party he had every reason to prefer one
Democrat against another Democrat or one Re-
publican against another Republican, as the case
A. It would be perfectly logical, and it would
save a lot of useless and irrelevant recrimina-
Q. ( Then why hasnt it ever been done quite
openly that way?
A. Because it isnt the custom.

once prophesied that he would be more famous
a hundred years after his death. Judged by the
sale of his poems at that distance to time (1896
was the centenary) the prophecy was correct.
Indeed, the reader of the Nineties had to be fair-
ly familiar with Burns in order to qualify as a
well-read man. Is it so today? Some of Burns's
pithy and picturesque metaphor survives in the
common speech; but does any one nowadays
read his works from cover to cover? The writer
of the article on Burns produces one rather strik-
ing bit of contributory evidence. Whereas in
the nineteenth century a dozen formal biog-
raphies of Burns were published, eleven more
have appeared in the less than thirty-eight years
of the present century.
Sir Walter Scott, in line with usual present-
day criticism, is pictured as having lost ground
almost completely in the popular interest of the
day. Hugh Walpole, after asserting in the Sup-
plement that "in 1900 Scott seemed safe forever"
-a comment based upon enthusiastic articles on
him by some of the highest English critics of the
day-expressed the somewhat cryptic judgment
that, in1938, Scott "occupies a lowlier place than
will ever be his again." Walpole ascribes the
present-day reaction to "the stern realism of
the Great War, the seriousness of the psycho-
analytical novel, the international stress and tur-
moil." But he.has to admit that, even in 1900,
small boys and girls no longer, like the children
of two or three decades before, read the Novels
with high pitched interest and excitement, but
were already protesting and. complaining when
forced to do so by older-school parents.
The cause lies deeper than the change in char-
acter of the times. It is not waning of interest
in tales of adventure: books of that nature still

Manitou Heights March .......-.
.............. . Christiansen
The composer of this march is well
known for his direction of the fa-
mous St. Olaf Choir. It is interesting
to note that Mr. Christiansen was
originally the band director at the
college, but later worked into the
choir position for which he is noted.
This composition is dedicated to the
place where the college is located:
Russian Sailors' Dance from "The
This composition is a product of
the new Soviet Russia. The music, as
the title implies, describes a group ofI
vodka-laden sailors as they dance on
the wharves of St. Petersburg to mu-
sic which comes from a nearby sea-I
men's bar. While listening to the
work one may easily imagine thesee
large, heavy-booted men as they per-
form their grotesque ballet.,
. This group is thebwinner of the
first annual ensemble contest inc
which the members of the University
Band participated. The object ofP
this contest is to further the cause ofl
ensemble performance and to makes
more familiar the music written for
Mood Mauve ..............Howlanda
Portraying an atmosphere that is
charminglymodern, melodically cap-
tivating, and even reminiscent of thep
dance, Mr. Howland in this composi-4
tion has made a noteworthy additiont
to the literature for the modern band.

Although the great Johann Sebas-
tian Bach conceived most of his works
for the organ, many of them may bec
faithfully transcribed for concert,

band is playing this evening. It is
from the Cantata 147 and is based on I
an original choral melody written by
Johann Schop. .
Air de Salome, from the opera "He-r
The scene is the courtyard of He-
rod's palace. Salome comes there
seeking John, the prophet of a new
gospel. She meets Phanual, chief ad-
vosor of Kin Herod, and relates to
him how John had found her lost in
the desert and hlped her to return to
safety, and how good and kind he isS
to all whom he meets. This she nar-
rates in a lovely aria.
Two Little Japanese......Charrosin
A little boy is playing with his two
lead Japanese soldiers. After a whilet
he tires of his game and tumbles into5
bed. Down in the playroom the littlea
soldiers start a game of their own.
The other toys join in the fun, and.
the game becomes quite exciting. But
hush! Something .is coming! It is
the cat, who wanders about the room
knocking over -the little soldiers. Allt
is quiet once more. Morning comes,
the child comes downstairs, sets upn
the toys, and commences to play
Valse Triste ................ Sibelius
This well-known work is an excerpt
from incidental music which Sibelius'
wrote for the drama "Kuolema" by
Jarnefelt. On a bed in a dimly light-
ed room lies a dying woman. The
soft strains of a waltz are heard ande
she rises out of her coma and im-f
agines herself waltzing again in theI
days of her youth. The dance con-~
tinues,tbecoming more and more
energetic. But suddenly a knck is
heard at the door; the music ceases.
She opens the door and utters aI
dreadful cry, for she is looking intoy
the face of Death.x
An Old Favoritek
The Bells of St. Mary's..,.Furber
The popularity of this song hasl
lasted so long that it might almost be
,termed an American classic. During
its performance this evening various
members of the band will be heard as
soloists or as part of a solo group.
Included in the score are some ef-f
fects which are somewhat unusual to
a concert band. The arrangement
