April 11, 1941: These soldier boys sneer a little when they read of strikes in war industries. My lad is on duty for a 12-hour shift, apparently. The first four months of his soldiering he got $21 a month, then got $30 and now, as a private first class with a rating, gets $36. The boys don't mind doing that -- for Uncle Sam -- but they can't figure out how a lot of fellows of their age and educational background, or less, feel they have a right to strike when they're getting $40 a week for an eight-hour day, with time and a half for overtime, Lee Shippey says.
CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNIQUE TO Martha Raye: So you're returning to pictures, and after all those nasty remarks you made about Hollywood, too. Some people would be embarrassed.
