Shuter, Opera
Associate, Die
Was Producer Of Many
1Vimes~ Presentation
Almost at the moment Friday when
the Union Finance Committee ap-
proved the revival of the Union Opera,
Ernest Mortimer Shuter, associated
for 23 years with the operas, died in
St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital.
Mr. Shuter was to have been as-
sociated with the revival attempt of
the opera next February. During his
years with the operas he produced
such student successes as "Cotton
Stockings," "Top of the Morning,"
which starred Thomas Dewey, New
York district attorney, "Tamborine"
and "In Land Out."
Since the abandonment of the op-
eras in 1929, Mr. Shuter had been
associated with the various public of-
ferings of the dancing studio operat-
ed by by Roy Hoyer, who was brought
to Ann Arbor by Mr. Shuter to direct
the dance routines of the operas.
Funeral services were held yester-
day in Sacred Heart Church in Al-
toona, Mich., with interment follow-
ing in Cavalry cemetery. There are
no surviving relatives.

about Cigarette Tbaccos


Of -tobaccos found in the more popular
cigarettes, namely...Bright,Maryland,
Burley and Turkish.
ALL THESE TOBACCOS except Turkish (which is
bought direct from the planters in Turkey and Greece)
and Maryland (which is bought through sealed bids
under government supervision) are bought at public
auction, just like any other auction where you might
have bought in a table or a chair.
AT THE AUCTION SALE the tobacco is piled in
baskets weighing from about 100 to 500 pounds and
each purchaser buys all of his tobaccos by competitive
bidding for the particular piles he wants.

And it is Chesterfield's Combination.., the right amounts

between Chesterfield and other cigarettes.
