Bestows Break
On Brakemen
Attorney General Raymond W.
Starr, stepping in where the English
departments of the University and
Michigan State College failed to
agree, held today that a comma has
no legal meaning, and that there-
fore railroad conductors and brake-
men are entitled to new suits of
clothes at their employers' expense.
The comma in question appeared
in an Act of 1819 which decrees that
"every railroad corporation shall pro-
vide a uniform, hat or cap and a
distinguishing badge" to each con-
ductor, brakeman or other employe
dealing with the public.
The act has been interpreted in
the past as meaning that the rail-
roads had the alternative of buying
full uniforms, or hat or cap and badge
for employers. Few of them chose
to buy their employes' suits.
The State Public Utilities Commis-
sion questioned the interpretation
recently and Starr, before whom the
issue was laid, passed it on to the
University and College English de-
partments. The University decided
the comma took the place of the word
"or." The College decided the comma
was used instead of the word "and."
Starr called in Assistant Attorney
General Bland A. Pugh, and received
the opinion that the commahad no
legal meaning.

"I'VE bought 4,000,000 pounds of tobacco at auc-
tions in the past ten years," says Mr. Valentine,
independent buyer of Westfield, N. C., "and my
bread and butter depends on making the right
bids. That's why I have to know tobacco values.
"Now I've smoked Luckies ever since 1918, and the
reason is, they suit my taste to a T'. Nobody knows
better than we tobacco men that Luckies are made
of the finest center-leaf tobacco."
