Department stores in scores of cities reported that the purchase of toys has roaihcd a record volume, with everything in demand from paint boxes to electric irains and tricycles. Prices, too, have soared to art all-time high. Toy prices have jumped more than prices ior almost any other goods. The price of wagons, bicycles and roller skates, made of metal and available for .he first time since the war. are particularly high. A Birmingham, Ala., department store Santa Claus reported that every child wanted a tricycle and an electric train (both in exceedingly short supply.) Dolls, as ever, are popular, and the supply is not nearly enough to match the demand. Manufacturers reported a shortage of doll wigs . and eyes, and most dolls available j were in the higher price bracnets. i One largo Kansas City.

Boston retailers predicted a 100 per cent increase in spending on toys and said customers complained that last year's toys were of poor quality and did not last out the year. A Springfield, 111., department store reported that its scarcest single item was :Creclqr sets, with the demand higher this year than ever before. Pittsburgh retailers said their greatest demand was for sleds, metal dishes, "magic-skin" rubper ciolls, wagons and trains. War-inspired toys sold weir in some sections and lagged in others, apparently depending on the tastes o£ the parents. Toys offered by manufacturers indicated ' many youngsters would be introducer) to such awe-inspiring items as games involving radar, electronics and atomic bombs. Jordon Marsh, a largo Boston store, reported it sold more vhan 1)00 aluminum jeeps, at $39.50 each, before the season was hardly underway. Tricycles, priced from '36.50 to $14.00 ,wqre up approximately '2~i per cent over 1941 and were' not available at all last year.

The Venezuelan general staff announced that Maldonado had landed safely at Puerto Carreno, Colombia, and had surrendered the plane to Colombia authorities. Rebel leaders at La Victoria and Bacarlo surrendered last night to the commander of the Maracny garrison, the announcement said. Official sources said only a "few hundred" air and land forces took part in the revolt. Several government plnnes were seized.

Seventeen persons still were nissing and presumed dead be- calh the tons of masonry and rick in the wrecked six-story len- ment. Police listed 20 known dead nd more than -10 injured.

So we fee that it is lime we slood forth an proclaimed our sympathy, with th sculptor, Sir William Reid - Dick. I Readers are doubtless aware thai one group of Britishers, including several members of Parliament object to the fat thai the model of the proposed statue shows the late President standing, and wearing^a cloak. They point out thai most people remember Mr. Roosevelt as having been seated much of the time. And they insis^ that he wore a. cloak only in the last year of his life—although we believe that point is open to question. This criticism fails Io lake inlo account some problems confronting the creator of a memorial sta- lue which should be apparent even to the inartistic layman. A memorial slaluc is part monument and purl portrait. It must be formal, noble and impressive. It must be ap- proprialc to its setting and surroundings as well as to Ihe character of its subject II must be somewhat idealized, yet it should be a recog- niable likeness. These are bul a few of Ihe sculp- lor's many difficulties. Bul they arc made progressively worsa by the changing fashions in men's attire. There is nothing formal, noble or impressive about a business suit. Al leasl, that is how we feel lo- day, although a time may come when Ihe world will consider lhal Ihe gentlemen today's "men of distinction" ads arc as dashingly allired as a Jacobean cavalier. Current men's fashions seem to have plagued sculptors oC memorial statues before. At leasl some of George Washington's artislic contemporaries reverted Io Ihe toga, or, simply the unadorned chest, in .portraying him in marble, undci the evident conviction that the rut- fled stocks and full - skirted coats of Ihe period lacked a dignity befitting the Father of His Country By the lime Ihe rash of Civil W slalues came along, Ihe sculptors had become reconciled to the fash ions of their day. Now was their ar uninspiring assignment. They coult put a plumed hat on a general and set him astride a rearing horse with out being inconsistent. And trr frock coats of the statesmen a leasl provided some flowing hues Today, however, the sculptor is confronted by the sack coal, Ihe four - in - hand lie, Ihe sofl shirl and Ihe laced oxford. They are comfortable garments, and not un- allractive in the original. Bul Ihey arc scarcely habiliments when preserved in stone or bronze. So we can't blame Sir William for including a graceful sweeping cloak in his composition. We can t object Io his including a cane, which is bolh accurate and decorative Nor do we find fault with him for showing Mr. Roosevcll standing. Continued on Page Two thcr sounds were heard and fire Captain Timothy P. Guinnc said ho believed all those trapped had perished. Meanwhile, Joseph McCabc, 13, and Joseph Flio, 10, members of a slum neighborhood gang which often had started fires in the six- story ice house "just for the tun of it' 'were scheduled to appear in children's court today on an arson charge. Capt. Thomas V. Hannigan said four boys admitted they got into the ice house by climbing to the roof of the blasted tenement and dropping-to the roof of the adjoining building. They broke into a room immediately under the roof where detectives found paper, wood, matches and candles. Hannigan said the boys left the building the same way after their ring leader remarked, "this ought to make on hell of a fire." As they fled, with fire engines already drawing up in front of the building, they bragged to other neighborhood kids, "we did that." Then they took a street car to their home on West 178th 'St., six blocks away. Chief Fire Marshal Thomas Brophy identified the boys as McCabe, Elio, Thomas Lyons and A'illiam Dahdah. Lyons and Dah- lah, both 11, were released in their Kircnts' custody and ordered io ap- car today as material witnesses.

George Meader, committee counsel, said that Quinn, in a telephone conversation with him yesterday afternoon, said he recently had suffered a heart attack and that his doctor might forbid such a long trip. Quinn's name was brought into the investigation late yesterday by Forrest Jackson, attorney for Bilbo in the senalors' inquiry into Bilbo's relations with a group of war contractors on Mississippi army air fields. Jackson said Quinn recently informed him that Terry had told Ihe banker he would use alleged threats against his life as an excuse for not testifying in the investigation of his former boss. Jackson quoted Quinn as saying Terry explained also that his testimony might incriminate himself (Terry.) Meader said that Quinn made similar assertions yesterday when he telephoned Quinn at his bank.

But the price has zoomed too !atc to help the unwary Redskin who fashioned this shell money centuries before John Smith became the most popular name in the phone books. Wampum is just one of 100,000 specimens of money stocked in stacks by the Stack brothers —- Joseph B. and Morton — since their grandfather became a coin dealer in 1858. If you think coin collecting is ust an Indian-head penny game 'or the kiddies it may interest you ,o know that this year the Stack firm sold a $3 gold piece minted n San Francisco for $16,000. But you have to be careful. The Stacks know a man who paid $5,000 for what he thought was a :?5 gold piece of 1915. When he tried to insure it. however, it turned out to be an 1913 gold piece worth only $50. A cpunterfeiter had worked on the piece. Coin collecting is now in the midst of its biggest boom with refugees who founded successful businesses here through the sale of coins they had brought to this country," said Joseph. How do oil coins get on the market? Many are recovered from household troves.

L. an estimated quarter of a million followers in this country alone. Joseph Stack estimates about 40,000 of these are "serious" collectors. "Prices have doubled since the war. chiefly because of the increased demand," he said. One of the chief stimulants has been the sending home bv American soldiers of souvenir coins from abroad. Coins proved a real wartime hedge against disaster for many The Stack brothers still shudder over housewives who clean old coins before bringing them in. "Never clean them," said Joseph. "One woman cleaned a 'lying eagle with sulphuric acid. The acid pitted the dale so that she was j lucky to gel fifty cents for a coin lhal was worth $100." Excellent condition and scarcity determine the value of coins rather than mere age. For example, the oldest known silver coin, the ancient Greek coin of Aegina, about 700 B. C., fetches :"rpm $100 to $200 while a dime minted at San Francisco in 1894 has a value of $1500. Only 24 were made, and only eleven of these are known. What is the most valuable single coin in the world? "Well," said Joseph, "I'll settle for the Decadrachm of Athens, made about 60 B. C. It's silver, a liltle heavier than the dollar, and it's worth up to $10,000. The only two known are in British and Berlin museums."
