SUIT COES WEST LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18.—UP)— Action in the custody fight over the 8-year-old son of Count Haugwitz-Reventlow and Barbara Hutton Grant, heiress wife of Actor Cary Grant, switched back to Cali fornia today, the former count fil ing notice that he will move to quash the dime store heiress’ suit for entire custody of their son, Lance. _T .. Along with his notice Haugwitz Reventlow filed an affidavit in which he declared he took the boy to Canada last June becuse Mrs. Grant had informed him in a letter that a friend who “had admitted to plaintiff and myself that he was a homosexual,” was to be with her for a considerable time. He denied allegations in Mrs. Grant's suit that the Canadian trip, later extended to Brookline, Mass., was for the purpose of getting more money from her or evading her custody action. However, he based his motion on the ground that the boy is now outside the Jurisdiction of the C a 1 i f o r nia courts. He believed his son could get the best education in New Eng land, he declared, and feared Mrs. Grant would take the boy to live in Spain after the war. She has retained her Danish nationality, ac quired when she married him, and has refused to promise she would not return to Europe with Lance, Haughwitz-Reventlow added. Mrs. Grant, who recently be came reconciled to *her actor hus band after a six weeks separation, filed a petition in Wilmington, Del., last month asking an injunction to prevent Lance’s father from bene fiting further from a $1,500,000 trust fund she established for him in 1938, when they separated. She charged he had violated their agreement for divided cus tody of the boy by taking him to Canada. Later in an affidavit she charged Haughwitz-Reventlow had falsely claimed Danis birth, where as he was born in Germany, was a veteran of the German army and served in the first World war. They were married in 1935 in Reno and were divorced in 1941 in England. Hearing on Haugwitz Reventlow’s motion was set for Tier. 11 FBI TAKES HAND IN CLARK CASE RAEFORD, Oct. 18.—(A”)—Army authorities have adopted no theory as to the probable fate of Maj. Rob ert H.

This condition has been brought about by the fact that for a number of years the cost of operating the business has increased at a I greater rate than have revenues. And while operating costs have been steadily rising, rates charged for telephone service have been reduced. Users of long distance service alone are saving millions of dollars annually as a re sult of the rate reductions made during the past several years. Though operating costs have greatly in creased, and telephone earnings are less, telephone users are getting more service for less money now than ever before. H.
