Professor Calls
Micliaan Great
Paper Maker!
Jays Sate Is One Of The
Manufacturing Leaders
In Radio Talk
"Manufacturing Paper in Mich-.
igan" was the subject of the second
speech on the "Michigan, My Mich-
igan" ;.erics of radio programs given
yesterday by Prof. Donald W. M-
Cready over station WJR.
At present Michigan is one of the
leading paper manufacturing states,.
with 42 factories, although at the
time of the Civil War there were only
seven plants in the State.
Until 1880 rags were the principle I
raw material used in paper manufac-
ture, but with the increased demand
because of newspaper expansion it
became necessary to find a cheaper
and more abundant substitute. At
first straw was considered but the
paper made from it was weak and
discolored. Finally research on meth-
ods of producing paper pulp from
wood opened new sources of cheap I
raw material for paper making.
Has Much Wood
Michigan had an extensive supply
of wood suitable for pulp making,
and at an early date several pulp
mills were started in the State, at
points accessable to the wood supply.
Professor McCready explained that
the manufacture of paper was still
an art, and that "the variety of paper
produced depends in quality and type
on the men who operate the paper
making machinery. No blueprints or
specifications have ever been drawn
that detailed the exact method of
making any sheet of paper. No de-
vices or method1s have as yet been in-
vented to take the place of the judg-
ment of the men that prepare the
pulp and fabricate the pulp into
Classify Mills
The paper mills in Michigan may
be classified into groups that manu-
facture essentially the same types of
The largest group both in number
of mills and total weight of paper
produced is the papertboard group.
These are 17 mills of this type locat-
ed at Monroe, River Rouge, Battle
Creek, Childsdale, Constantine, Dear-
born, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, On-
togon, Otsego, Palmyra, and White.
The next largest. group of paper
manufacturers is the book paper
group. This industry is centered
around Kalamazoo in six companies.
Other plants making book paper are
located at Plainsville, and Water-
Other important groups are those
that manufacture newsprint, cheap I
magazine wrapping, and wallpaper.

Plane Contract
Department Of Commerce
Accepts Designs For Use
Of Inspectors
In competition with other aeronau-
tical engineers of the nation, Ralph
H. Upson, noted balloonist and former
member of the aeronautics depart-
ment here, was recently awarded a
contract by the Department of Com-
merce for 15 planes and five more on

use of the traveling inspectors of the
The plane designs call for an in-
expensive, yet safe plane which the
government has long been seeking.
It is a two-place cabin plane, with
low wing and pusher-type motor. The
engine is a 95-horsepower inverted
incline Menasco B-4 engine.
Mr. Upson is the designer of the
Navy's all-metal dirigible, and has
won the Gordon Bennett Balloon
race and four national championships
in ballooning.


Flier Tells Sidelights
In Apprehension Of
Pretty Boy' Floyd
An interesting story relating to the
extermination of "Pretty Boy" Floyd
was told to newspapermen Monday
night by Hugh McCormicic, member of
the ground crew for the Piccard's as-
cension, and one of the Maycock
Fliers, operating at the Detroit City
Early Monday morning, McCormick
told his listeners, Department of Jus-
tice agents in Detroit called up the
airport and left instructions to warm
up the two best planes. Shortly after-
{ward a group of agents appeared on
the field, and drawing sawed-off shot-
guns, machine-guns, and arsenals of
small arms from satchels, loaded
them on the planes. The planes then
left for Cleveland.
"They asked me if I wanted to go,"
McCormick said, '"and I asked how
long they would be gone. They said
maybe six hours, maybe two weeks. Me
with 85 cents in my pocket, I could
see myself owing Maycock $20 when
I got back home.
"Now I'm just as glad I didn't.
They're the boys that helped shoot
down Floyd. It must be terrible to say
goodbye to a wife and go off on a trip
like that."

It is therefore a significant tribute that well-dressed
Yale men prefer trousers and slacks equipped with
Kover-Zip, the invisible seamline closure.
Further evidence of Kover-Zip's correctness from
the standpoint of style is its approval by Yale's
leading college tailors.
. . . . 1. j/e.*J. . . famous Yale and 'Warvard tailor
for over 40 years, says -Our custom
tailoring establishments in New Haven, Cambridge and New
York, always scrupulously cautious in the acceptance of design
innovations, whatever their origin, are nevertheless responsive
to every style development that is in good taste.
"Although we have been witness to a growing favor for the
zipper fly, we could not accept the ordinary slide fastener as
fit for fine clothes. The new covered zipper, however, does
meet our standards in every respect and we are now pre-
pared to equip trousers and slacks with the Kover-Zip fly."

Style experts and fashion authorities are
well aware that the preferences of college
men form an important and dependable in-
dication of the trend in men's apparel.
One detail of men's clothing which until
now has never been satisfactory is the fly of
the trousers. The buttoned fly, no matter
how carefully made, is bulky because of the
extra fold of material required; it bulges and
wrinkles in a way that is most unsightly.
The slide-fastened fly gives a much smooth-
er and neater effect in front than is possible
with buttons, but the ordinary slide fastener
has an uncovered strip of metal that is ob-
jectionable to men who take pride in being
The new invisible style-line closure, the
Kover-Zip fly, has every practical advantage
of the ordinary zipper, and in addition is
superior to it from the standpoint of good
taste because no metal shows-the units of the
fastener are concealed by a grosgrain ribbon
that harmonizes with the fabric of the trou-
sers and is guaranteed to outlast the garment.
The Kover-Zip fly has been acclaimed and
adopted by "best-dressed" seniors in Amer-
ica's foremost colleges, and a typical ex-
pression of opinion about it is the following
statement by Arthur Willis of Dartmouth,
class of 1934:
"The trouble with the early type of slide
fastener was the display of metal-too much
of a suggestion of
work clothes. I'm for
this new covered zip
with the invisible fas-
tener, it's a finished
product for a finished
College men every-
ARTHUR WILLIS where,fromCambridge
to Palo Alto, welcomed
the Kover-Zip fly and 'now demand it alike
on dress trousers, informal suits and slacks.
Smooth and smart, efficient and durable,
Kover-Zip is the closure for all modernclothes.
