H. 0. L C. ACTION
DllEHS ATE Authority to Increase Bonds Expected—Application Time Extended. ——————— w By the Associated Press. Pinal action on the House bill to Increase the bond-issuing authority of the Home Owners Loan Corp. form $3,000,000,000 to $4,750,000,000 was ex pected today in the Senate, which yes terday approved an amendment ex tending the time limit on new applica tions for loans for 60 days after en actment of the measure. The Senate, without a record vote, approved the amendment offered by Senator Norris, Republican, of Nebraska. As soon as the whole bill is acted upon today, the Senate planned to adjourn until Monday. The next order of business remained undecided. The motor carrier regu lation and A. A. A. amendment bills k have been approved by committees, but the final reports have not yet been made. The Guffey coal regula tion measure, approved last week, was formally reported late yesterday, but leaders apparently prefer to give some other bill preference. ■ Senator Robinson, the Democratic leader, meanwhile piedicted the Cope land bill to strengthen the pure food and drug law would be revived and passed, but not until some minor differences have been composed. Norris' amendment to the H. O. L. C. measure was opposed, by Senator Bulkley. Democrat, of Ohio, in charge of the bill, on the ground that this lending agency must stop making new loans some time soon, and to permit new' applications, as well as action on hundreds now on file and awaiting ap- ! proval. would disturb private lending I agencies. Norris, however, successfully con tended it was unfair to permit appli- l cations 60 days after passage only by those who. before passage, served no tice they would seek loans, as the bill provided when it came from commit tee. The Senate previously had adopted. 43 to 30. an amendment by Senator Russell. Democrat, of Georgia, barring employment by H. O. L. C. State and regional offices of men who are of ficers or employes of private firms en gaged in lending money on real estate. Ary such men now on the H. O. L. C. pay rolls would have to be dismissed within 90 days. This amendment also was opposed by Bulkley. who said the corporation heads had contended it would neces sitate letting out some of their most valuable and experienced men.

By the Associated Press. i NEW YORK, April 12.—The acroas the-seas telephone has made the world a small town for the girl* who put through the calls. The bond that relieves the loneli ness of two girl* on night switch boards 10 miles apart on the prairie unites the New York girls with their colleagues In London and Bueno6 Aires. "Sure,” said Grace Kelly, head of the overseas division of New York operators, “we know the girls. We know their names. We exchange cards at Christmas and Easter.

Miss Kelly explained how calls through (the office of the American Telephone & Telegraph Co.) here are picked up by London and relayed to other points in Europe, Africa and Asia. New York gets all calls com ing into America. The girls In New York, though they do not talk to "Central." frequently chat with operators of private boards in Paris, Budapest, Berlin and other cities. “Our four South American wires— Rio de Janeiro. Santiago. Buenos Aires and Lima—are direct," said Miss Kelly. “So when we open the wires in the morning the igirls chat while testing. We can tell who's talking from there—Concepcion, Marie.

Judge Sylvain Lazarus dismissed the case and bought a package. Nine others in the court room followed suit. "What about the London opera tors?” "At first we couldn't understand each other. The girls In the South American countries talk English and they were easier to understand than the girls with the British accent. Of course, there's no telling what our accent did to them. "At 3 in the afternoon boys replace the girls in London," she said. "Any flirtations?” "No flirtations.” she replied. Miss Kelly thought the greatest agent of cameraderie between the girls is the word "okay.” The Eng lish were delighted with it. The Latins like it even better.

NEW YORK, April 12.—Distributors, the ‘‘middlemen,” were defended last night by Richard R. Deupree, manu facturing executive, as creators of “a large part of the value which the producers obtain for their products'* rather than "parasites living off the labors of producers.” Deupree, president of Procter & Gamble Co., challenged what he termed a "commonly accepted be- | lief" that the distributive agencies’ efficiency “lags behind productive ef flcieney." He spoke over a national network. “Basically, distribution is merely one phase of production,” he said. “It does not differ from any other ac tivity which may be called production. * • • While the farmer may feel that the railroad charges top much for transportation, or that the re tailer makes too large a profit, he cannot say that If they were out of the picture he would get more for his crops “As a matter of fact, he would get very much less, for in a very real sense, those engaged in the distribu tive end of the productive process make available the value which the farmer receives.” • -• Queen Replaces Lost Pin.

It all starts with these little plants, called tobacco seedlings. They are grown under cover and transplanted to the open fields in the early spring. Then the warm Southern sunshine begins to get in its good work and as the plants grow and ripen the mild ripe leaves are cut and sent to the curing barns. The farmer then takes his tobacco to the auction warehouse where it is sold to the highest bidder. All of this takes about a year. The tobaccos for Chesterfield cigarettes are then stored away for two years or more to make them milder and taste better. It all takes time—just about three years—but there is no substitute for mild ripe tobacco in mak ing a good cigarette. That's the reason smokers —men and women—say that Chesterfields are milder and that Chesterfields taste better.
