I HOLLYWOOD
I FILM SHOP
By ALANSON EDWARDS
Un itcd Press Staff Correspondent
HOLLYWOOD. April ID. (UP)
Two decades ago, a "nut" com
edian, a monologist and a vaudc
( ville actor-writer used to gather
j in booking offices an>l talk about
j how some day they would be bis
j shots.
Well, they're gathering again
now, this time in the California
sunshine that George Bernard
Shaw discovered was just the
same sun that shines everywhere
else.
They are Ed Wynn, the "fire
chief" of the stage. Bert Kalmar,
noted writer ami composer, and
Charles (Chuck) Reisner, veteran
comedy director—all of whom
have seen lesser days.
Reisner will direct Wynn in a
musical fillum which was written
by Kalmar and a fellow gagman.
In those days as now, Wynn
i was known as "the man with the
j hats.'' He had an English stooge
I and his gags went something like
j this:
"Look, Bertie, I'm supposed to
I be standing on a railroad track.
• Now you ask me who I am, and
! I'll say I'm a detective looking
I for a criminal. You ask me if I
j think I'll catch him. Then I'll pull
• the job—'I don't know but I'm
j on the track'."
Keisner leaped to fame by writ
ing "Goodbye Broadway, Hello
' France" in war days. He came to
I Hollywood and became a comedi
! an with Charlie Chaplin, later n
J director. He directed Jack Demp
j sey's first picture and with the
i laikies he branched into musicals,
i Kalmar used to sing his own
I songs in vaudeville. A sample:
i "They call me Simple Simon and
I they say 'Nobody Home,' but if
' you look you'll find a book of
I knowledge in this dome; for in
! stance, there is Mr. Brown who
! thinks that I'm a sap. Don't
I know that while he's working,
I Mrs. Brown sits on my lap."
PRODUCTION LIMIT
: WOULD BE IN HANDS
OF LABOR SECRETARY
(Continued from page one)
I bor, Miss Francos Perkins, would
| be jriven virtual dictatorial pow
I ers over production, wages and
hours of work in the nation's in
dustry and natural resources un
der the bill she has framed for
| consideration today by the house
labor committee.
Representing as it does Presi
dent Roosevelt's ideas, it consti
tutes an unprecedented social and
economic venture that surprised
even ardent advocates of the
"new dial" at the capitol as its
provisions became known. TIvj
control over the industrial domain
prescribed in its 10 pages is far
J beyond that in the two-page Black
i five-day week, six-hour day hill
1 passed by the senate which it sup
plements.
Miss Perkins is given power to
control production as secretary
of labor in all industries and spe
cified natural resources. There is
no limit upon her authority oth( r
than the orders must be in the
'•public welfare." The means is
left to her.
She can repeal, at will, provi
sions of the anti-trust law which
hitherto have prevented indus
tries themselves from restricting
I production by agreement in a
(clause declaring that her decisions
"stand as in law."
The bill contains a lengthy pre
amble basing its necessity upon
'the welfare of the people and the
I workers of the nation. This thread
I runs throughout the various pro
I visions granting authority for the
I experiment.
| The bill is so drafted that if
• any of its provisions is declared
unconstitutional, the others stand.
This is to meet the threat of a
supreme court decision particu
larly against the mandatory pow
er of fixed wages. f
The measure permits different
wages in different sections of the
country, thus conforming to vari
ous existing conditions.
A five-day week ,six-hour day
is prescribed in the bill. Certain
industries which have "peak" pe
riods however, may, with the per
mission of the board, operate on
a five-day week, eight-hour day
for not over 10 weeks in a year.
There are no exemptions in ths
measure such as were specified in
the Black bill.
The control of production is
aimed, in the" language of the
measure, to protect the worker
from the layoffs and unemploy
ment caused by the creation of
surpluses. It is designed to regu
late production to a fixed normal
basis and to prevent 'wildcatving'
whereby some industries unload
goods at low prices on the market
to discriminate against others.

I corruption and graft. The depart
ment of justicc is backing this
! proposition 100 per cent in every
way possible. I could not con

j Involved in the controversy is

I now under the department of

) department.

' despite protests by Federal Judge
William Clark of the New Jersey
■ district, a few days ago a beer

The measure allows depositors I

owed the bank $1000 could buy j
