Beetson is trying to work out how to make a case to the Labor Commission that the employment of female extras should be considered on a completely different basis to that of factory workers, and at the same time avoid giving the extras an inflated sense of their own importance. He is also concerned that studios have a tendency to "gyp the extra," and this could lead to labor problems.
