I thirk some movie stars are
worth $200,000 a year—all of it.
I gladly pay 50 cents to see a
movie, largely because I like the
star. Let’s say the star gets 10
cents out of my 50 cents. That’s
all right with me.
Enough other people get
enough pleasure out of this star
to induce them to chip in enough
dimes to aggregate $200,000 a
year for her.
But the government doesn’t
think I know what I like. They
take perhaps $160,000 of the
star’s salary for income taxes.
That means they take 8 cents
out of my dime.
I think that we, the people,
should decide who is worth what
to us, and that anybody who can
serve or amuse us our money’s
worth should be allowed to keep
most of it.

Another broadcast will be mad
over station WOW, but the date ha
not been decided on as yet. Mr.
Melford states that two of the dom
inant factors affecting Negro Health
are Environment and lack of apprec
iation for health.
