For Consuimers Closes
With Sutcliffe Speech
The three-day invitational Confer-
ence on Consumer Credit has proved
to be a "very marked success," Prof.
Robert W. Kelso, director of the In-
stitute of Public and Social Admin-
istration, declared after the conclu-

opinion at most of the sessions of
the conference, he commented, as all
phases of thought on consumer credit
were displayed by men from every
part of the nation meeting on neu-
