Griffin, Niehuss
Picked On Body!
To Study Sales,
Committee To Start Work
When Governor Murphy'
Dean Clare E. Griffin of the School
of Business Administration, and Mar-
vin L. Niehuss of the Law School, will:
start work as members of Governor
Murphy's recently-appointed Install-
ment Sales Study Commission as soon
as the commission has been organ-
ized and receives instructions fromI
the governor.
The two members of the University
faculty have been appointed to serve
with five other men of the state for1
the purpose of riporting certain mal-
practices connected with installment
sales that the Governor has recom-
mended be abolished by state law.
The Governor has made it clear, how-
ever, that;he does not advocate entire
abolishment of the installment meth-
od of sale, only purification. .
Specific complaints which the com-
mittee will investigate are that prop-
erty is seized and wages garnished
to get defaulted payments, and that
new debts are often added to pay-
ments due on old installments, mak-
ing a new mixed debt. Murphy has
asked that sellers on installment be
limited to'the right either to repossess
property on which payments have
been defaulted or to sue for the debt
in court.

But Branch Bobbitt, like
so many other independent
exetprefers Luckies .. .

T AUCTIONS in my warehouse
in Farmville, North Carolina,"
says Mr. Branch Bobbitt, "the
higher the tobacco sells for, the
better my profits. So I'm always
glad to see Lucky Strike buyers in
there bidding. They know what
they want and they'll keep bidding
right up until they get it.
"Well-in a cigarette-it's the
tobacco that counts. I know to-
bacco and I know what tobacco is
in what cigarettes. So that's one

reason I've smoked Luckies for 5
or 6 years."
Mr. Bobbitt represents the "aris-
tocracy" of tobacco experts. He
judges the tobacco that the growers
grow. He's impartial, not connected
with any cigarette manufacturer.
Many other experts agree with
Mr. Bobbitt. Sworn records show
that, among independent tobacco
experts, Luckies have twice as many
exclusive smokers as have all then
other cigarettes combined.


It still means
From Hoo.
