Service Klafr Corresiiondenl .OKDON—Can the loyal Lonn press sell Kini; George VI us his wife, plus his two girls, the empire and to the world successfully as former Kin-; Ed- rd VIII largely sold himself? It's n financial oucstlon onx- usly debated by business men. ley may talk about "dollar- aslng Americans," hut on all big occasions such as coro- tlons, jubilees, etc., they are ither nimble and nifty thcm- ives at pursuing the pounds, llllngs and pence. And that is ml is worrying Ihem at present. ' Just a few short months ago— "ore that explosion known as ie Simpson crisis— when things ere going ahead for the eorona- on of King Edward, the situa- 011 seemed roseate. The hotels nd boarding houses of London sported they were having book- igs from all over the world for fay 12 — coronation Day — and ie period just before and after, ot so much has been heard lale- of people clamoring for rooms. I.AMOR IS GONE 'ITH EDWARD Then there. was the matter of ?ats in grandstands and houses ong the route of the corona- on parade. Tall stories about uitastic prices being- paid—espec- illy by rich Americans — were uite common. The papers were ill of It. Americans were pant» to lay down 25 iron men. 50, and some even as high as ,250—the latter price being for room which would accommo- ate quite a number of guests, ut just the other day the same apers printed tlie news that uite good seats could be obtnin- d for as low as $15 and that the verage price now was not above 25. Now this does not mean that ext May London Is going to be deserted village nor that tlie oronation is going to be boycot- ed. London itself on any and II occasions can turn out terrific rpwds for any public show, be • la. coronation, a royal wedding •i royal funeral, a royal jubilee •S a Lord Mayor's parade. • But there are some slight in- (.ications that the. festivities wil ot prove as big a drawing card i Americans and other foreigners s would have been the case had dward been the center 'figure; All pumped-up adulation aside lere was a certain amount lamor around the Peter-Pannisr gure of the king who nevei rew up, despite his 42 years Moreover,' more people in all parts f . the globe had personally seen im than any man now living :aving seen him and heard him hey were interested in him ant Is doings. VILLWG VICTIM OF tOYAL PRESS-AGENCY King .George VI has none of hese advantages. But he is as- iduously lending himself to the 'Uild-up as much as possible.
