Music: No Strike

The strike that threatened to replace the orchestra of every musical show in Chicago with an electric piano (TIME, Aug. 25) and to spread throughout the music centres of the East (TIME, Sept. 1) has been checked at its source. The players' salaries are to be increased from 7 1/2% to 10%.— The agreement will be in force for one year, after which another squabble will be in good order. Mean- while, Chicago musicians are the highest paid in the world. Weekly they collect a minimum of $72.10, a maximum of $92.50.
