Scott Fitzgerald was preoccupied with money specifically, his inability to earn as much as he spent. It he were alive today, he might still feel that he was not a competent money manager, but he could take some comfort in having substantially more to mismanage. For the works of F Scott Fitzgerald are now earning record amounts for his estate, of which his daughter, Mrs. C. Grove Smith, is sole executor. FILM RIGHTS A third movie version of Great Gatsby" the him rights cost will open in New York next Wednesday, and for 1974, Fitzgerald's books are expected to sell nearly a million copies in the United States alone.

What's happening now is a tar cry from, the circumstances Fitzgerald found himself in. It has been estimated that over the course of his writing career, his total earnings gave him an average of to annually, but there were lean years. In 1932 and 1933, his book royalties came to a total of "Gatsby is now doing so well that copies of it will probably be sold this year in this country alone. It was originally published in 1925 and by the end of that year, a second printing had produced a total of only copies, which sold for each. Were he alive today (he died in Fitzgerald would see sustained (and lucrative) interest in not only but also his other owrks. "Tender is the night" is selling at the rate of copies a year. Scribner's alone estimates it sells copies of all Fitzgerald works annually, and has been for at least five years. Scribner's accounts for most of the author's work.

Saturday, March 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 13 Airlines hike cargo rate MONTREUX, Switzerland (AP) Leading airlines de- cided today to increase cargo rates on transatlantic flights up to five per cent June 1, but did not agree on an increase in passenger fares. The increase affects all gen- eral cargo rates, specific commodity rates, bulk utilization charges and minimum charter rates, an announcement by the International Air Transport Association (I AT A) said. The increase will be five per cent on the North Atlantic route and four per cent on mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic routes. The increase in cargo rates and the proposed increase in pas- senger fares were to meet higher fuel costs. Association sources anticipate fuel prices during the second quarter of 1974 will be 170 per cent higher than in the same period a year ago.
