O'Brien Asksh
Speedy Finish
For Bank Quiz
DETROIT, Aug. 15.-()-The one-
man grand jury investigation into
the closing of two national banks
in Detroit reopened today, with At-
torney General Patrick H. O'Brien,
in a lengthy address, asking that the
investigation into the cause of the
city's bank collapse be terminated
The plea of the attorney general,
who requested the convening of the
jury, came while Wilson W. Mills,
former chairman of the board of the
closed First National Bank-Detroit,
sat in the witness box waiting to take'
the stand. It was followed ,by the
declaration of Circuit Judge Harry B.
Keidan, sitting as the one-man jury,
that "I dognot intend to continue this
proceeding unnecessarily."
"I believe, in the first place, that
everyone who has definite knowl-
edge pertinent to this matter should
be heard, no matter who he is," said
the judge. "In the second place, this
court is not going to be dictated to
by any official, no matter who he
may be."
O'Brien said he believed that cere-
tain witnesses who felt they had a
right to testify as a matter of "per-
sonal privilege" should be heard, but
beyond these men, he said, he wished
to defer to the wishes of J. F. T.
O'Connor, comptroller of the cur-
rency, that the proceedings:end at
once. He said that O'Connor had
indicated nothing would be done to-
ward reorganization of the banks un-
til the grand jury had ended its ses-
sions and a final decision has been
reached in litigation by stockholders
to avoid assessment.

109,972 Names
Are Affixed To
Bank Petitions
DETROIT, Aug. 15.-A total of
109,972 signatures have been tabu-
lated by the Detroit Depositors' Com-
mittee in its circulation of petitions
asking the Federal government to
offer a plan to reorganize Detroit's
two closed national banks, according
to workers in the committee head-
James K. Watkins, retiring police
commissioner, who is chairman of
the committee, said that Thursday
noon has been set as the deadline
for the returning of the 60,000 peti-
tion blanks now in circulation.
"We know many of there petitions
have been signed in full, but they
are not of value unless the petitions
are returned to us," he said. "Our
effort for the next three days will be
to collect these petitions and tabu-
late them."
The committee seeks to get as
many signatures as possible, on the
theory that a large number of sign-
ers will convince Washir~ton that
Detroit .is united in favor of re-
organizing the old banks.
Anthony Maiullo, attorney and a
member of the committee, will speak
for the campaign over Station WXYZ
at 9 p. m. Tuesday.

Telephone Business Is
Reported Much Better
NEW YORK, Aug. 15. -(P)- Long
listance talk, regarded by many as
a luxury only a short time ago, is
vetting into the necessity class again.
Ielephone and telegraph companies
.ook for palmier days now that busi-
aess is improving.
The telephone industry's major
problem now is to expedite reinstalla-
ion of telephones disconnected dur-
.ng the depression. Wall Street ex-
pects the industry, to lay even more
emphasis on the intensive sales drive,
advertising and employee campaigns
which helped stem the tide of discon-
nections during the past two years.
Telephone installations reached a
peak in the middle of 1930. -At that
time there were about 17,185,600 sta-
tions in service, according to gov-
ernment records.

Cars Built At
World's Fair
Nearing 2,000
ChI'AGO, Aug. 15.-Assembly of
new autoniobiles in the plant opei-,-
ed here on A Century of Progres-
grounds by the Chevrolet Motor Com-
pany will pass the 2,000 mark l e
this month. officials annonced here
Since, the line was set into mot ion
by the light of a cosmic ray j'
prior to the opening of the fair, omi-
put has held at a steady pace of
24 cars a day, six days a week.
In July exactly 600 new Chevrolei
coaches and coupes came off the lin;
in June 589 were built, and in May
165, bringing the total produced here
from the time the line starte
through July 31, to 1,354 units.
If present schedules are mainta'n-
edcar number 2,000 will be comple
ed duiing the last hour of the lst
day of this month, officials said.
They estimated that by the closing
of the fair upwards of 3,500 new
Chevrolets will have been assembled
here. This figure exceeds the totti
1932 production of 11 different au!;
mobile companies then in business.
So insistent has been the demand
for cars carrying the distinction of
having been built at the World's Fai
that every unit so far produced' has
been purchased at the end of tl
line and driven away by its new
owner. Color options may be spedi
fied in advance and the purchaser is
given the privilege of going into the
assembly pit and helping to build
his own car.
People have come here from more
than a thousand miles distant with
the primary object of purchasing a
car built at the Fair and driving it
The huge assembly room, housed
in the special General' Motors Ex-.
position Building, with a wide bal-
cony a. fifth of a mile long completely
circling -the assembly operations, is
attracting nearly half of all the peo-
ple who visit the fair.
Among part-time jobs held by Iowa
State footballers, waiting on tables

has to be a different kind of
tobacco from that used in
cigarettes... and it has to be
made by an entirely dqferent
process ..
0 UT in Kentucky, where they have
pretty women, fast horses, and
blue grass, there grows a tobacco called
White Burley. It doesn't grow anywhere
else in the world.
There is a type of this White Burley
that is best suited for pipe smoking. It
is neither too thick nor too thin. It is
not light and chaffy; at the same time,
it is not rank or strong. "U. S. Type
31" is the government classification
for White Burley.
Since no other pipe tobacco has yet
been found which seems to equal White
Burley, this is what we use in making
Granger Rough Cut.
Next, we use the Wellman Method,
a famous 1870 method of making pipe
tobacco, to give Granger its fie flavor
and fragrance. Then, too, Granger is
'Rough Cut"-just like they used to
"whittle" their tobacco off a plug with
a jack-knife. It smokes cool, lasts longer
and never gums a pipe.
And finally, we want to sell Granger
for 10 cents. Good tobacco--right pro-
cess-cut right. So we put Granger in
a sensible soft foil* pouch instead of an
expensive package, knowing that a man
