THURSDAY, OCTOBEK 22, 1936 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)''COURIER NEWS Tfl PROFIT ROIL! Coronation of. Kins; Edward Will Give Lesson in "Dollar Chasing" By MILTON BKONNKR NBA Service Slaff Correspondent LONDON.—When King E:lward VUI is crowned on nest May 12, there is every prospect that the British, who so often are pleased to call Americans "dollar-chasers", will give their cousins from the U. S. A. a .sample of moncy-grau- blnu Hint, will make all other nationals look like tlie dunces In the lowest rank of the financial kln- - <lersarten class. /The main hold-upr-whnt the - British call a "ramp"—will be In connection with the great Coronation Day procession. Necessarily such shows do not often occur in the life of any man, because, unless for unforeseen fatalities, there are not many coronations of a new King. A British Coronation Day , procession is one of. the sights of Eiiroiw. Big detachments from all' tjie- nrmeit services of Great Britain and the'Empire march in it. Crowned heads, princes, and statesmen from far and wide take part. It Is a thing.to remember and that many later boast about. Expect Kecord TJironj It b possible that the crowds in London next May will be the bi°- gesl the capital has ever had The police arc basing this prediction '•upon their experiences last year • when the late King George V celebrated his silver anniversary as a monarch. The crowds that thronged the streets every time the ruler was scheduled to make an appearance surpassed all expectations. Remembering this and with a desire that as many people (is possible should sea the Coronation procession, King Edward agreed that the route of the parade to Westminster Abbey and from the Abbey back .to Buckingham Palace should be lengthened by about two" miles, ft was estimated that this '" would give thousands of people . . more chance to get standing room on the sidewalks, and other thoii- . -sands a chance at a ' reasonable price to secure seats' in windows and stands. Spacious Speculation But .the authorities reckoned without the greed of.property owners and speculators. The moment "the -route wa's officially announc- , .«!, speculators swooped like hun- I gry buzzards. Business buildings, /......whose upper ^stories had'beeii va- ' .cant "for jjionlhs, - were tentatively '.tanen by tile speculators al.-thou-' sanrts of pounds for just one' day —May. 12. Some times these speculators' resold their rights ta. other speculators and took a big profit The result hns been that the pric, es demanded for" seats in windows' have soured to figures as high as 5250 to 5350 per person. . It has been freely said that rich Americans and rich people from the Empire dominions will'gladly pay tills cxhorbitant price. There arc numerous flat -buildings where people cannot get a flat for rent' beyond May ] of next year. The . owners expect to make half a year's rent out of one day's takings. The London newspapers have teen full of editorial comment criticizing this Sweet Tribute To Edward Englishmen's thoughts long have been dwelling ujwn the forthcoming coronation of King Edward. At a recent confectioners' exhibition in London the judges (shown left and right) awarded n high prize lo this 80-pound candy model of the monarch on his coronation. throne. ' . "display of the privileges of wealth on the one hand and of gross profiteering on the other." Seals for Only 10,000 At present the Office of Works is expecting to build stands to seat about 10.000 people. But" this would be a mere drop in Hie bucket. Besides, the general public would never get a look-in. By the time the members of Parliament; the officials and their families and personal Mends were through, there would not-be a place left frn- the ordinary man .without pull or' a government Job. ,'• - - Now it so happens.that.the government controls about. 60 per cent of the available v space along the announced route of the • processions—the •• offices "in Whitehall and the open park spaces in the Mall, a large frontage.in Hyde.Park and Constitution Hill. A' number of'prominent citizens have written to the papers advocating that Instead of providing for the favored with 70,000 seats, the-. Office of Works should erect stands accommodating' 500,MO. ' The'vast majority, of'these; seaU; :could-be : 5bld-~to" the"g>rieral pub-" .llc"atr a price which wou'ld cover 'the : cbst of erecting the stands and give'a-large profit which could .be turned-iii to the King George Fifth Memorial .Fund; 1 - The prices would be very much less than those exacted by-thc speculators. And ths general effect .of'this would be' to force the speculators themselves to become more reasonable in their demands. Next to this matter or seclno"tnc procession, the most vital question for the would-be visitors from outside the country Is tiiat; of hotel accommodation. Tire total number of rooms in the so-called luxury hotels Is just about 5000. King Edward lias reserved about 800 of the choicest of these for e.vpeclctl prominent guests who cannot possibly'be accommodated in Buckingham and St I James's Palaces. • Egg Marathon On For Picked Hens of Land Smart Obstructive Bid Spoiled By Not Knowing When to Stop BBy WM.
