Suit for $30,000 damages was mtt
tutcd In the Supieino Coutt yesterday
by Dr I.ee Uallow.iy. associate pro
fessor of commerce and Industry at the
New York L'nlverslty, agalnM the Sperry
Hutchinson Trading Stamp Company
and George 11. Caldwell, Its president.
Prof, (lalloway's grievance Is tn the
effect that a thorough, Impartial Inves
tigation Into the trading stamp business
which he was conducting for the Amer
ican Fair Trude League was so
scrambled or "pled" by tho trading
stamp company and Mr Caldwell, Its
president, that It resulted lu "great pe
cuniary damage to tho plaintiff and ho
was greatly damaged In his professional
standing and has suffered great humilia
tion and mortification and has been
otherwise gieatly damaged."
From tin- complaint and statements
made yesterday it appeared that last
Juno the teairun appoint! d Dr. Callo

certain the economic value of the trad
lug stamp and coupon business. Such
Information, It Is alleged, was to lie
submitted to Congress to obtain ade.

sent Out 1 11,1100 lllniiL.
To carry out his purpose Dr. Gal
loway prepared a sheet of printed iies
tlons, had 10,000 of them distributed
to merchants throughout the country
and fat hack to await results. The
blanks went out In tho last part of 1915.
Along In February, It Is alleged, a
letter was received from Sperry &
Hutchinson enclosing signed and an
swered blanks, with the Information that
ciisiomois had sent them to 'the com
pany's office either by mistake or with
the desire that the company should see
the answers. Another set of answers
came a little later from the same source,
all highly favorable. In the second lot
a llllnc clerk found one set of unswers
In a form similar to the original, but
hearing on the top the legend "Sug
gested Answers."
Inveetigallou then revealed It Is as
serted, tho trading stump company had
not only suggested answer to the ques
tions, but that It had circulated blanks
of its own to swell tin- number of
answers favorable to the trading stamp
business. It Is not asserted that the
duplicates were otherwise than .1 true

minor errors, principally typographical,
