more police said today they had i
been advised by Brooklyn officers i
that they are holding two men in>
response to a pickup order describ

up the Century Athletic Club here
on July 4. i
The message said Brooklyn police
had recovered a gold wrist watch
which matched the description of;
one taken from a victim at the Cen
tury Club.
The holdup was only a rumor for1
72 hours until Baltimore police said
they finally had found witnesses
who acknowledged being victims.
The Baltimore grand jury subse
quently investigated the robbery
and then enlarged its inquiry to
cover the entire operation of the
metropolitan police department.

Writer Kills Self
Few Hours Before
Work Is Accepted
By tho Associated Press
MUSKOGEE, Oka.. Sept. 13.—De-j
sponcient over not hearing from his
publisher a former European news
paper correspondent for the Chicago
Tribune shot and killed himself yes-!
terday only a few hours before a
favorable report arrived on his five
volume history, County Attorney!
Chester Norman said.
Thomas Stewart Ryan. 53, New
York lree-lance writer, who was
visiting his mother here, was found
dead in his room with a cryptic note,
the official reported.
Mr. Norman said the note began.
"This is suicide," and then finished
with a I.atin quotation from Horace
Translated, it read, "As a vase is
begun, why as the wheel goes round
does it turn out to be a pitcher."
The dead man s mother, Mrs. Liza 1
Stewart Ryan, said her son had onlyj
recently completed his historical
work, but was despondent because
he had not heard any favorable
reports. Mr Norman explained.

der which top officers shared in
the profits, was changed.
"My association with the Ameri-.
can Tobacco Co. has been my life
work,” he said in a letter to stock- ,
holders. "I have known no other.
But obviously I cannot, with self-;
respect, continue in the company if
a decision is made which I must
regard as a repudiation of proved1
successful policies—a change in the
terms of employment of those who
have built and are building this
business with me."
When the tally was made at the
annual meeting of stockholders in
1940, Mr. Hill's management re*
ceived a vote of confidence of more
than 96 per cent.
An advertising man at heart, Mr.
Hill reputedly spent more mpney
advertising a single product than
any one in history—around *200,-1
000.000 by 1944. In a single year the
advertising outlay was *20,000,000.
‘‘As the result of my years of ex
perience in advertising. I sincerely
believe it to be a very great, yet 8
very simple science,” he once said.
“Reduced to its simplest terms, ad
vertising is really nothing but 'sales- 1
manship in print’ and during these
more recent years, with the intro
duction of the radio, ‘salesmanship
in person' as well.'
Coined Many Slogans.
Belligerent, controversial slogans
were conceived and made to per
meate the land—emblazoned in
newspaper and magazine advertise
ments and on billboard and broad
cast by radio. Many of these slo
gans were his own inventions, such
as the “Reach for a Lucky Instead
of a Sweet” phrase that stirred up
reverberations from candy manufac
The advertising campaign using
that slogan. Mr. Hill said in a report
to stockholders, "has often been
credited with contributing more than
any other one thing to the develop
ment of cigarette smoking among
women” resulting “in an un
precedented increase in the con
sumption of cigarettes of all brands,
with our company, as the creator
of the idea, getting the large share
of the increase."
Seeking a radio vehicle for his
advertising message. Mr. Hill decided
on music and the weekly "Hit
Parade" was born. He watched every
detail of the programs and never
failed to listen to one. The distinc
tive lively tempo of the music was
his idea. He was supposed to have
gauged public reaction to the music
by watching his elderly aunt tap her
foot as she listened.
Auctioneeer's Chant Publicized.
Through the programs the sing
song jargon of the tobacco auction
eer was lifted from a sectional to a
national oddity.
Though one of the biggest cor
poration executives. Mr. Hill was
one ol the least-known. His work
was his life and he spent most of his
time at it, except for his annual six
week fishing trip in Canada. He
was rated as one of the most expert
salmon fishermen in the dominion.
His letters to stockholders, bearing
his bold-lettered signature, weix
usually of a chatty nature. They
might urge the recipients to spread
the word of the company's cigarettes
among tneir’friends or they might
discuss some weighty business mat
ter. such as a minority stockholders'
suit or the amount of taxes the com
pany had to pay.
In the affairs of the company. Mr.
Hill was dominant—he was the boss.

Wenner-Gren Gels Visa
To Pass Through U. S.
By th# Ats»ciat*d Fr#»t
A State Department official said
today that Axel Wenner-Gren, for
merly blacklisted Swedish industrial
ist, had been granted a 60-day
transit visa to enable him to return
to Sweden from Mexico City via the
United States. t
The Federal Bureau of Investiga
tion and other Government agencies,
the official told a reporter, had ap
proved the travel papers for the
Swedish multimillionaire, who was
virtually exiled in Mexico City
throughout the war.
Wenner-Gren was on the Amer
ican ■'blacklist" of persons and firms
suspected of dealings with the enemy
for four and one-half years. The
"blacklist” was abolished last July.
Government officials said Wenner
Gren repeatedly had sought a
transit visa during the war. but that
his request had been denied because
all persons on the “blacklist” were
defined by the Treasury Department
as enemy nationals.
The State Department official said
he did not know Wenner-Gren's
present whereabouts, but believed he
intended to sail to Stockholm from
New York City after a short stay
RFC to Buy Binder Twine
To Meet Harvest Demands
Stabilization Director Steelman
today directed the Reconstruction
Finance Corp. to purchase 30,000 -
000 pounds of binder twine from
Mex'co and Cuba and absorb what
ever losses are necessary in reselling
it to domestic users. *
Action was taken when the Civil
ian Production Administration re
ported domestic production of bind-!
er twinen could not be stepped up
sufficiently to meet the demands of
next year's harvest because record
crops this year have so depleted
The White House statement said
RFC is continuing to purchase all
cordage fibers imported into this
country although subsidy payments
or cordage other than binder and
bailer wire were discontinued on
June 28. These fibers allocated by
OPA to domestic manufacturers of
twine at prices involving subsidy
losses are to permit resale of the
finished product at approximately
the 1941 price level.
