2 - Monday, Apr. 6, 1964 Red/onc/s Dally Facts London British capital full at unusual surprises MISS JOSEPHINE It£.\T Society Editar (EDITOR'S NOTE: ThU is the first of a scrits of dispatches telling of "Great Cit its of tha World." Th«y will be written by correspondent* who have lived there for many years. No. 1—London By ROBERT MUSEL United Press Intematienal LONDON (UPI)-Some cities offer themselves as mistresses to the world. But not Iiondon. Some cities wear their hearts on their sleeves, hiding noth ing, like that brazen metropolis across the English Channel, all smiling boulevards, whispering lime trees and invitations to romance. But not London. Her grey skirts spread about her, she greets her visitors demurely. Those who have hurried along for a fleeting flirtation often grumble at the waste of time. London can be won but those who win her must come prepared to woo her as her real lovers have done for nearly 2,000 years. Lifelong Affair It can be the start of a lifelong affair. For of all the great cities of the world London is the most continuously surpris-i ing. The grey cloak conceals a heart of fire. Her charms are not obvious but a bouquet of delights awaits those with the patience to seek them out Some cities parade their attractions on their main streets. But not London. Her biggest and most famous thoroughfares are too often her dullest. But behind them are the almost secret places that all who know her learn to look for —the little markets, the cobbled mews, the sudden tree- framed squares, the ancient al leys and masked yards like Pickering Place, opposite the palace of SL James', last of her dueling grounds. "London thou art the flower of cities all. . ." So WTOte one of her suitors about the time Columbus set sail for the new world with the blessing of Ferdinand and Isa bella of Spain (who gave St. Margaret's Church in Westminster its stained glass window). Second Metropolis London is the second metropolis of the world in population next to Tokyo. It straddles the River Thames and from its geographical center at Charing Cross Station extends from 12 to 16 miles in all directions. Within its 722 square miles live 8.2 million people. By the middle of the first century A.D. a Roman historian was describing the town as "a busy emporium for trade and traders." It still is. The London he was writing about was on the square mile called "The City" — the presented-day financial heart of the British Commonwealth and the sterling area which is at the core of 40 per cent of the trade of the world: The home of the great commodity markets, the hub of international insurance, one of the busiest of all ports. Housing Crisis The capital is overcrowded, there is a housing crisis and some way must be found to tempt the people to work elsewhere. London lives in the present as though reluctant to leave its past It clings to ancient customs and to the many reminders that it is really a cluster of villages (Chelsea, Paddington, Hackney, Bow, Kensington, Dulwich, Greenwich, Battersea among them) which grew together over 1,000 years. Some find these old ceremonies out of| touch with reality: most consider them charming. London's surprises come in many ways. It has the reputation of being staid and conser- ative — it could actually teach Paris a naughty thing or two, and sexual dalliance is a problem for moralists. Two out of three girls 20 or under are already pregnant at the time of marriage. One district has an ille^timacy figure of over 25 per cent of births (Paddington). The weather is aptly described as foul by I/)ndoners themselves. But the truth is that its mildness attracted raid ers from the continent in olden times. There is rarely any snow, the average mean temperature is 50 degrees fahrenheit (New York's is 56), the sum mers are cool and pleasant and togs are getting fewer every year as the city enforces smokeless zones (first suggested in 1661). PleaMKt Suprlsa British women are a final (and to most men a very pleas ant) surprise. Someone once de scribed them as a nation of] pygmalions all waiting for pro fessor Higginses. Tourism is another industry, It is Britain's largest dollar earner and London brings the biggest share with 9 million visitors a year behind only Rome and Paris in the number who arrive from overseas. Perhaps the last word be longs to one of London's many great literary figures, Samuel Johnson, who said (Curca 1777) "Sire, when a man is tired of London he is tired of life." JUDY HENSKE UCR Announces FolkJaiz 'Wing Ding" For April 22 Still searching for all purpose shark repellent SAN DIEGO - The aU-pur- pose shark repellant has yet to be found, a panel of experts was told at a recent meeting at the University of California's Scripps Institution of Oceanog raphy. Chemical substances and mechanical devices may work on some sharks some of the time but not on all species aH of the time, says Dr. Perry Gilbert Gilbert, Professor of Zoology at Cornell, is spending a year's sabbatical at Scripps. He is chairman of the Shark Research Panel of the American Institute of Biological Sciences. Dr. Gilbert said be and his associates have tested 120 compounds and numerous mechanical and electrical devices at^ the Lemer Marine Laboratory, Bimini, Bahama Islands.

Compounds included gases, dyes, and even compressed air. The devices in eluded bright lights, noise makers, electrical vibrators, and in- stiruments that produced electric shocks. Some species of sharks would shy away from chemicals or dyes in the water while others would ignore the substances. Certain species were even attracted by mechanical devices; others ignored them after an initial show of curiosity. Dr. Gilbert said a device known as a "bubble curtain" was tested after a national magazine had called it the brightest hope for repelling sharks. He said his group installed the device, a Inng narrow pipe with a scries of small holes through which com pressed air is forced, on the bottom of the shark pens. The result was the tiger sharks ignored the bubbles, swimming freely back and forUi Uirough the curtain. • Many of the compounds or devices that seemed to repel sharks were effective only as long as the sharks were not hungry. Dr. Gilbert said he has not yet found a dye that wiD hold a shark out of an area where there is food and when the animal is in a "feeding fraizy." Even though present electronic devices tested were ineffective when sharks were after food. Dr. Gilbert says there may be real hope in elecbic current devices as a means of repelling sharks. He said the most effective meUiod at present of protecting a bathing area is by means of gill nets or meshing. This is employed successfully ia Australia and South Africa and so reduces the population of sharks in a meshed area that an attack on a baUier is quite unlikely.

MOULTON United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote today rejected the bid of former Mississippi Gov. Ross Bamett and present Gov. Paul B. Johnson Jr., for a jury trial in their criminal contempt case. This means that the contempt charges will be decided by the judges of the 5Ui U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The charges stemmed from the activities of the two officials in the fall of 1962 when James H. Meredith, a Negro, was attempting to enroll in the University of Mississippi. The vote to reject the Barnett-Johnson jury appeal was 54. Justices Arthur J. Goldberg and Hugo L. Black wote dis senting opinions. Justice WilU- am 0. Douglas joined both. Justice Earl Warren jomed Gold berg only. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals directed the Justice Department to bring the con tempt action. Bamett and Johnson had no immediate comment on the ruling. Bamett who now practices law in Jackson, Miss., said he probably would issue a statement later. An aide to Johnson said the governor would comment after reading today's ml ing. Bamett, then governor, and Johnson, then lieutenant governor, were accused of violating a circuit order prohibiting all state officials from interfering with Meredith's admission. On Sept 25 Bamett who was then governor, stood in the doorway of an office in Jackson, Miss., and kept MerediUi from registering. The two were also charged with failing to presen-e law and order on the campus at Ox ford which exploded into rioting after Meredith's admission. The FifUi Circuit certified the jury issue to the Supreme Court after a tie vote. In other actions today, the court: —Summarily reversed the breach of peace convictions agamst 65 Negro students who demonstrated against segrega tion at the Rock HiU, S.C., City Hall in March, 1960.
