flttft IMPORTANT EVENTS WORLB CENTERS By AHCH ilODOEItS, Staff Correspondent. LONDON, Nov. 4.— Twenty minutes for lunch. Big business d~als transacted over ft, glass of hot milk and ft bun. That la the new order In the city, London's financial district, where bankers, brokers, and businessmen who formerly lingered over a flve- courso luncheon now line up at a counter for coffee and sandwiches. It is difficult to say whether this idea for saving time and avoiding indigestion was copied from Wall Street. Most Londoners are amazed at the tales of the speed at which New York and the rest of the United States is supposed to move. Certainly the average American visitor finds this city much more quiet and restful than his home town. But the majority of the young businessmen in tho city have accepted the quick lunch idea as practical, regardless of its origin, for the Stock Exchange closes at four o'clock and he who takes two hours for lunch may find that a lot of things have happened Jjefore he gets back to the office. Of course there are still numerous financiers of the old rump steak and roast lamb and mint sauce schools. who snort at tho idea of anything less than two hours for their midday meal. They are mostly elderly gentlemen who have developed waist lines and business simultaneously, and whose complexions have attained a healthy glow like that of the old gentleman on the singboards who smilingly tells the world that he always has a Worth- higton. They have lunched in the same eating houses for years and know that some very fine steak and kidney pie is to be had on Thursdays. They meet / tho same men in their clubs every day. \ The chef learned years ago that Mr. .JMVilklns-Yates likes his lamb chops under-done and that Mr. Lawrence-Laurence will be quite perturbed if the Gorgonzola is not sufficiently ripe. The soda fountain luncheon has not penetrated as far down town as Threadneedle street. A large American-owned department store in the west end has a fountain where even the most intricate concoction's are served, .but regular ice cream filling stations are few and far between. The malted milk and sandwich lunch is consequently almost unknown. This is p*t>bably just as well, for there is very little similarity between an English malt and the thick creamy one served at the drugstore back home. Employes of Imperial Chemical In- duatries at the company's new offices in Millbank start the day with "physical jerk's." This process is not so mysterious as it might seem, for it is only the local name for setting up, or upsetting, exercises. A large gymnasium is equipped yith all the necessary things for keeping fit, and a competent instructor puts the office workers through their paces. At first the gymnasium was neglected by most of the employes. The idea was so new that, even the sport-loving llnglishmen left it alone. Then somebody broke the Ice and now classes are held twice weekly for women and men Lord Melchett, president of Iraperia Chemical, is very keen on the idea anc is considering a further extension of the scheme. If the idea is fully developed it will mean that a director wil supervise the physical welfare of every employe. Compulsory physical train ing will be established and lunches anc teas will be planned by dieticians Medical advice will be free. Although such supervision has been carried out for some time by Ameri can and Canadian firms, it Is just now being introduced in England. It should be popular with most office workers but It Is doubtful whether the plan will make any great hit with Borne V Londoners who would rather go into la public house and order what they rant for lunch than have one of them there scientific blokes tell them wha 1 to eat. And would they 'ave any beei with It? You carnt tell, one of them scientist mugs might arsk a man to eat snayls. The season In snails, or "wall fruit,' is booming just now. Enall gatherers in Somerset and Wiltshire earn about five dollars a day picking the snails from old stone walls and hollow trees. About one hundred, boiled or roasted. make a good meal. Raw snails are considered good treatment for rheumatism, taken externally. Snail fanciers say that the cooked product tastes very much like winkles, if you are fond of winkles.

(B) Tlie scrambled word is THUNDEB WILL BE DEPORTED WHEN NATIONALITY IS JUDGED PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 4.—A modern Philip Nolan, Poe's famous "man without a country," is waiting In the county jail for some place to go. He is Steve Kindred, Oregon's "maij without a country" as far as Immigration authorities are concerned. He was born in Poland, at least It was Poland when he was born, but after the war, when the map of Europe was remade, Kindred's home town was in Rumania. These two countries—Poland and Rumania—have not decided which, if either, Is. going to accept Kindred upon deportation from the United States for illegal'entry. NOEWAY!BANKRUPTCIES DECREASE DURING YEAR OSLO, Norway, Nov. 4.—There were fewer bankruptcies In Norway during the flrst nine-months of this year than during any corresponding period for the last nine years. According to the latest official statistics on bankrupt estates, and estates carried on under private arrangement, the number of the former amounted to 638, and the number of the latter to 184—a record which In both instances is lower than in any year since 1920. At the same time the number of registered claims have decreased correspondingly. The British museum has more than 46 miles of shelving for its 2,000,000 books. Things to Learn About London: If you are forcibly ejected from a public place, the man who propels you toward the door is known as the Chucker Out instead of bouncer. YOUNG TURKEYS WILL BE SAFE FOR ANOTHER YEAR MIFFLINTOWN, Nov. 4.—Seventy- five young turkeys of this year's broods have been caught in this section and taken to the counties of Westmoreland, Fayette and .Somerset, where they will be safe from hunters until 1931. Harry Van Clave, Ralph Wilson and H. L. Plasterer, all of the state, game commission, 1 and J. F. Fegan, game protector, caught and loaded the birds.

Frightened by a Stubborn Spreading Rasl Los Angeles, Cal.—"My husband had a rash on his body and after using the usual remedies all but one of the spots healed, but that one was very stubborn. AY a used every kind of a salve we ever heard of, even prescribed treatments, but still the spot spread. I heard of Resinol, and in desperation started to use the soap and ointment faithfully as directed. After using one-quarter of a small jar the spot was completely healed." (Signed)-— Mrs. C. E. CRAMER. Tho quickness with which Resinol acts in most cases of skin disorder, amazes many people. Itching is usually stopped at once. To adopt Resinol Soap for every day toilet use is to keep the skin clear and soft. At all drum/ink. FREE cample of each. Writo Reiinol. D«pt. 74, Baltimore, Md.
