The' letters assure the growers that it Is for their own advantage that the facts concerning plans for IBIS crops be understood as soon as pos sible, i To dealers who contract with grow ers for supplies of the leaf, the coun cil has written asking for answers to the following questlonse and enclosing a blank for the reply! . , ' '1.

The Custom Honss tabolatton oontatned a blank line drawn across the space allotted to Sweden, whereas the comparttive : table for October, 19K, credited Sweden with purchases here ainonntmg to S&95LU8. In July. Che month the Bcensmg system was pot Into effect, Sweden was permitted to draw1 on this' country for sappuas) to Ibe extent of $l,34,S0i. Yesterday's monthly statement was the nrst in the history of the Custom House, so far as eonldvbe learned, which failed to show Sweden as an exporter of Amerlcaa merchandise.

BAT FORMALLY INSTALLED PASTOR Dr. William Horace Day who came to Bridgeport last February and has since made such a splendid beginning In the organization of the United First and Second churches, was formally Installed pastor N of the church last night. The Installation Council was held in the afternoon, at which time Dr. Day gave a very forceful and convincing statement of his personal religious experience and faith, stat ing also his doctrinal beliefs.

Dr. Edward Lin coln Smith, of' New York, gave the charge to the pastor, and Dr. Gerald H. Beard of this oity gave the right band of fellowship. .. . In giving the charge to the people Dr. Howard Bridgman of Boston said 'that after the congregation had Bat in their comfortable upholstered seats all evening, congratulating themselves on their good fortune In the man whom they had chosen to be their leader, it was now his pleasant duty to make them feel a bit uneasy, as he pictured to them what was expect ed of an ideal churSh in .the discharge of its duty to the community. Dr. Brldgman said that of course ho man was so fitted to tell a church of Its duty in this respect, as one who had I never had any church of :his own. at all! But he had found the church of his dreams last summer in a lit tle country chtsrch among the hills, which paid a salary of seven hundred dollars a year and a cow. When this dream is realized and he is pastor of such a church. Dr. Brldgman hopes to find It one whose members feel an obligation to be there; which does business, which Is reasonably elastic, and not cursed with the New Eng land tradition' "We never have done It"; and finally, one which Tputa Into practice what he preaches ' on ' Ban- days. ,t ; J ' -.- ' Dean Charles R, Brown, of the Tals School of Religion, preached the In stallation sermon.
