The industry, not yet out of its clothes, was born with a gold eagle in its mouth, and swal- lowed the bird. The feathers are be- ginning to tickle its stomach. Exhibitors have prescribed lower film rentals and reduced admission. Producers, disagreeing, say film rent- als cannot be lowered, that the cost (jl production prohibits that. Neither party is willing to walk the floor with the squawking "chee-ild" until it quiets down and becomes like other normal industries. Hays is to take care of that Pro- ducers, distributors and exhibitors are al! wiHing to abide by the rem- edy prescribes. His fee will be al least a year. Some reports place it at I have asked leaders of all branches of the industry just what Hays 'du- ties will be. None of them would tell me. So I went to Carl Laemmle. president of Universal He was one of the committee which asked Hays accept the position. "1 did not talk if Hays as a repre- sentative of the producers' associa- said.

"All branches of the industry must set together if squabbles are to be eliminated and the whole-hearted re- spect of the public t obe gained Then Hays' position in the movies will correspond to that of Judge Lan- dis in baseball a dictator of princi- ple, a man reputation sha1! re- round to the credit of the "That's just it, answered La- eirmle.

He under- stands political psychology as applied to politicians an dthe public alike. Some in the industry believe that is was a serious mistake to select a politician of either party for the po- sition. They refuse to be quoted, but they point out that Hays. been identified as the one man more re- sponsible for Republican successes the past few years than any other, will be antagonized in states where Democrats hold the whip hand. Thev also fear that any move Hays makes wnl be n.et with the cry 'politics." whether or not it is of any political significance.
