individual who is looking only to his immediate
future such an inducement is powerful indeed.
Possibly he intends later on to continue his edu-
cation, but with good pay come a high standard
of living and increased wants and needs. Almost
invariably the boy who chooses to work rather
than to go to college builds up his needs to a
point just short of his income. Nearly always, too,
before the intention of going on with education
has materialized the boy has married and has
established a family for whose support he is re-
sponsible. And then all hope of advancement other
than any that is possible from the ranks of the
laborer is lost.
But wherever the laborer comes in contact with
the college man he invariably voices the opinion
that the latter is "lucky," that he "wishes he had
had a chance." In the great majority of cases the
old opportunity plea is nothing more than pure
bunk. Opportunity is simply the will to sacrifice
present benefits for those that will materialize
to greater advantage in later years.
Does the college man tread the primrose path?
He does not. In virtually every profession and
business he is taken in as little more than an
apprentice. His wages at the start are very seldom
as high as those of the laborer just out of high
school. The pick-and-shovel man complains and
sobs, but his real complaint is against his own
discarded opportunity. When hard times come
along the complaint again is from labor-they
have families to support, they have responsi-
bilities.
Is the college man any less hard hit? Today
there are more unemployed laborers only because
there are more laborers. A percentage of college-
trained men at least as large as that of the un-
schooled laborers has been thrown out of work.
The misfortune of our present-day civilization has
fallen equally on both classes. The important dif-
ference is that in the college-trained class there
is advancement, there is an opportunity to climb
beyond the starvation wage of the beginner.
A laborer remains a laborer not because he
"didn't have an opportunity," but because he
didn't grasp the opportunity that was offered.
The Theatre.

whole setting, from Johnson's personal attendance
as presiding officer to the unusual rules promul-
gated to govern proceedings, flowed from much
the same thought that prompted the fish bowl
method of the first draft drawing.
It was all designed to bring the vitally essen-
tial element of public confidence and support to
the aid of the government in attempting an un-
precedented "partnership" with business.
The procedure significantly was marked by that
public audience idea. It also reflected experience
on the part of Johnson and his associates with
what so often happens before Congressional com-
mittees.
No matter what the subject under considera-
tion, any Congressional committee is always in
danger of drifting off into legal, even constitu-
tional, arguments. There also is a tendency to in-
voke court rules and procedure which makes dif-
ficult hewing to the line of inquiry.
No Court Atmosphere
The industrial codes will be worked out in hear-
ings free of much of this. Legal attack upon the
act or regulations is excluded. Every one appear-
ing must come in the role of witness, to be ques-
tioned by the administrator or his deputy.
There is no room for cross examination by op-
posing parties or any other procedure character-
istic of courts.

SCREEN LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD

son ticket holders who have not
made reservation for tonight's per-
formance of "The Romantic Young
Lady" are requested to make them
before noon today. The Players can-
not guarantee to redeem coupons
after that time.' There are still a
few seats available for the final per-
formance tonight.

Grand Opera And
The Common Man.,..
T IS INTERESTING to note, as
pointed out in an editorial of The
Daily Iowan, reprinted on this page,uthe srecent
developmnents in the field of good 'music and its
acceptance by the masses.
Present-day results in this respect are only the
answer to a trend which has been going on for
some time. In past years, only because they 'were
the only ones able to afford self-idulgence, the
richer classes were considered the group capable
of proper appreciation of fine music, good liter-
ature, excellent acting. The less fortunate were
forced to content themselves with that nearest at
hand; reproduced cheaper music, movies instead
of the opera, and lithographs instead of oils.
Now, with mass production and mass accept-
ance the current by-word, the taste of the less
wealthy has been cultivated. Or,. rather, the taste
of the less wealthy has been catered to and given
notice. It would be indeed crude to doubt that
such an inherent aesthetic nature did not always
exist.
In connection with this wider acceptance of the
finer things in life, it is pleasing to see what prog-
ress is being made locally in this respect. The De-
troit Symphony Orchestra started last week a
series of summer programs which are open to the
public. Presented in the open, from a shell espe-
cially constructed for the purpose, this, fine or-
ganization offers the best in music fbr any who
care to listen.
As the editorial from The Daily Iowan states,'
it is no longer necessary to sit in a gilded box to
appreciate Aida.

MRS. G. MARTINEZ-SIERRA
By DAVID MOTT
The lovely role of Rosario in "The Romantic
Young Lady" in which Martha Ellen Scott is mak-
ing such a charming appearance this week at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre cannot be attributed
to G. Martinez-Sierra. This article is not in the
nature of an expose on the Michigan Repertory
for advertising one thing and giving the public
another. It is merely to say that Mrs. Martinez-
Sierra is the power behind husband Gregorio's
literary throne-that she is responsible for the
striking feminine portraits that dominate his
work.

HOLLYWOOD-Louise Dresser and Jack Gard-
ener have had the laugh on certain skeptical
friends for a quarter of'a century.
Louise was a musical comedy ingenue and Jack
was an actor when they were married-they.cele-
brated their twenty-fifth anniversary the other
day-and some who knew them didn't think the
marriage would take. "The Gardeners will be talk-
ing to their attorneys in less than a month."
said some.
Says Louise proudly: "We've never talked to at-
torneys about anything but contracts."
Gardener, slender, youngish-looking and 50, for-
merly was a casting director, now is an actors'
agent.
Louise thinks that next to "The Goose Woman,"
which made her a star in 1925, "State Fair" gave
her her best part. And of her, Phil Stong, who
wrote the Iowa classic, said: "Miss Dresser, of all
the players in the film, most nearly fitted the
character I had in mind when I wrote the story."
Up From Vaudeville
Long time Vaudevillian Roger Imhoff, out of re-
tirement and into the movies, says sameness killed
vaudeville, but that the actors were not to blame.
"I was not to be allowed to play any act other
than one called 'The Pest House'--a skit laid in
a small town hotel-for the last 15 years I was
on the stage." Managers refused to let me change,
even to give me a rest. I did that act thousands of
times. Other standard acts went on year after
year because the heads of the circuits insisted."
Imhoff, who played a broad Irish comic for 40
years, is mostly Swiss. His mother was of Irish
descent.
She Tells
Report has it that when Betty Compson's "My
Eighteen Years in Hollywood" comes out, a lot of
people are going to get a shock. Betty has had
much to say about Hollywood friendships.
When Louise Fazenda's son reaches the age of
three months she will return to the screen after,
more than a year's absence. He's nearly two
months now.
Mae West is investing her money in stone work.
I'm told she has bought a diamond weighing 17
and three-quarter carats.

Married when barely twenty, Sierra has had'
throughout the greater part of his career the
collaboration of his wife. While her name never
appears on the title page her ideas of womanhood
and her feminine understanding of women are to
be felt in every line. Much of the actual writing
has been done by her. Temperamentally the two
are quite different, which accounts for the striking
combination of actuality and ideality one finds in
works bearing the name of G. Martinez-Sierra.
Mrs. Sierra is a very brilliant Spanish woman,
but very simple and practical in her tastes, not
at all poetic oreavid ofsbeauty. She believes that
art should have a message to deliver. She is a
great feminist, and leader of the movement for
more enlightened womanhood in Spain. She has
done more than any other Spanish woman to
awaken her country-women to a sense of civic and
social responsibility. She has represented Spain at
several of the International Congresses of women.
With the husband it is art for art's sake. So he
easily accepts his wife's ideas as substance for his
plays. Ideas aren't so important to him so long as
they could be treated beautifully.
Thus the combination of Senor and Senora
Sierra is a lucky one. Her ideas save his work
from having the characteristic weak-kneed quality
of most Impressionist (art for art's sake) writers.
The combination is the reason why the women
of Sierra's plays have brains (like Rosario) and
are the intellectual equals of their husbands.!
And it is the reason why the women of Sierra's
plays have not the propagandist quality of Mrs.
Sierra's lectures on womanhood (which are re-
knowned throughout Spain). Each saves the other
from his worser self, and it would be difficult to
say which is the better half.
It is to be hopedthatmuch work may yet come
from these two brilliant minds and one may safely
say that their splendid optimism, their sane views
on life, and the delicate charm of their style will
assure them a place in the literary history of
the world.

Editorial Comment

Iwr

-TTUNQUESTIONABLY, in this day of
U economic disaster and turmoil, the
laboring classes have many just complaints
against society and the capitalistic system. Many
adjustments must be made and class distinctions
swept away. But in spite of today's problems and
new difficulties--ndeed grown stronger because
of them-an insistent voice of prejudice against
the college-bred white-collar man can be plainly
heard.
Anyone who has worked with unskilled laborers
knows the cry; the college man gets more pay,
he doesn't work as hard, he has an unreasonable
prejudice in his favor. And he will know also that
the one who complains the loudest, who criticizes
most violently a system which places such a prem-
ium on an academic education, is the one who had
an opportunity to continue his studies and turned
it down.
By far the greater proportion of American-born
laborers remain laborers all their lives because,
instead of continuing their studies after secondary
school, they preferred to begin immediately to
earn money. Modern educational systems make it
possible for all but the most impoverished to avail
themselves of educational advantages. There are,
of course, many cases where further education, be-
cause of family circumstances, is impossible, but,
arong the American-born at least, it is by far not
the rule.
During normal times it was always possible for
an industrious young man to work his way
through school; even when this was not desirable,
he could always work for a year or two in order
to save enough money to assist with expenses. The
fault is not with the system, it is in the ndividual.
Today, of course, times are abnormal, and only
the more fortunate are able to attend college,
or, indeed, are able to find jobs of any kind. But
during the years when business was at the boom
peak and opportunities were open for everybody
the complaint of the self-responsible laborer was

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-Perhaps Hugh Johnson, ad-
ministrator of the industrial recovery act, found
his figure of speech to describe how industrial
fair-practice codes were going to work out under
public scrutiny in his experience with his last big
government service, the draft act operation.
He said the codes would be framed "in a gold-
fish bowl." It was out of a goldfish bowl that the
10,000 numbers were drawn in 1917 under John-
son's supervision to establish the order of call
for some 10,000,000 men.
Looking back to that red-letter day of the first
draft drawing in a senate committee room, John-
son recalls the fish bowl idea as "window dress-
ing."
It was designed to create public confidence in
the scrupulous fairness of the system by which
men should be summoned to the colors. But it
was not an essential part of the draft machinery.
Many other ways of fixing the order of call be-
fore draft boards could have been used. The value

OPERATIC PROFITS
Intellectualists have long berated the public for
its lack of taste. Persons of great musical attain-
ment have simply regarded the public with con-
tempt, not even stooping to berate. Particularly
has this been true of those who, with a prideful
feeling of philanthropy, take it upon themselves
to sponsor the, production of opera in the great
cities.
Appeals for support have usually been: to the
elite, to the wealthy, to the aristocratic. Thus it
came about that it has been impossible to tel:
whether the drawing attractions at the great
opera theatres were the operas or the audience.
In the rare cases where the managements have
appealed to the general public, admission prices
usually have been so exorbitant that the public
was unable to respond. Managements concluded
not too logically, that here was added proof of the
degeneration of the masses.
They might have known better. First rate music
at the Hollywood Bowl and the Wagnerian festiv-
ities at Bayreuth have consistently drawn appre-
ciative multitudes.
Recently this fallacy was once more demon-
strated in New York when Cecil E. Mayberry and
William A. Carroll, just a couple of-sensible busi-
ness men, turned away hundreds of customers
every night who scrambled for 99 cent Hippo-
drome seats to witness Verdi's spectacular Aida
produced under the direction of Alfredo Salmaggi
Three blocks away, meanwhile, public donations
were being solicited tearfully for the support of
the Metropolitan Opera. House, where seats sold
for $7. The Hippodrome was making'money; the
Metropolitan Opera was on its last financial legs
begging for alms.
Perhaps, if this lesson is well enough learned,
the public will some day be given a decent chance
to demonstrate that, even though it can't afforc
to sit in a gilded box, its appreciation for good
music is just as real as any millionaire's.

"Since lent himy pen
it has never been, the same i"

i

Don't make yourself unpopular by
borrowing students' pens. Unless the
pen is a Parker Duofold, your hand
is apt to foul the point, or change its
action. Don't expose yourself.
Stop at the nearest pen counter
and pick the Parker Duofold that
fits your hand to a "T." You'll be
prepared then for any emergency-
even for lending-gracefully.
For no style of writing can foul, or
alter Parker's miracle Duofold point.
Still it writes as easily as you breathe

-with amazing Pressureless Touch!
And even the Parker Duofolds at
$5 have 22% to 69% more ink capac-
ity than some pens of other makes
priced 50% higher. Yet none has
Parker's stylish,balanced, stream-
lined design-"America's Shape-
liest"-or Parker's Invisible Filler,
or Patented Clip that lets the pen
set low and unexposed in the pocket.
The only guarantee you'll need
for life is the name on the barrel-
"Geo. S. Parker-DUOFOLD."
