Sept. 7, 1940: Boss, you could find fodder for sizzling comment in the announced plan of studio czars to pry European big-name writers through immigration barriers by giving them scenario-writing contracts. If there are legitimate jobs of that kind to pass out, why not award them to perfectly capable American writers, dozens of whom are currently on the "work wanted" list? If, on the other hand, there is no legitimate need for additional contract writers, padding the payroll to favor refugees is decidedly unfair to the stockholders, Jimmie Fidler's staff says. 

Sept. 7, 1940, Jimmie Fidler
