By Milton Bronner Nea service staff correspondent London May 20.�?London-City of millions is today one of the devastated cities of Europe. Not because it has been bombed but because of the fear it May be bombed. The devastation takes the form of business shop after shop being vacant of Street after Street of residences being empty of tenants of Flats that Are Dusty and deserted. When War was declared the authorities in anticipation of a possible bombing attack evacuated nearly one million London children and in Many cases their mothers. They were mainly from the poorer quarters of the town. The Rich and the socially elect evacuated themselves. They had a better Hole in the country. And there Many of them have stayed. Their absence naturally affected the business of the retail shops and the restaurants. Dauk for Light company a measure of what All this has meant is Given in a sort of apology issued by the Central London electricity company. In most american towns when an electricity company raises its rates r simply does so and that s that. But this London company Felt an obligation to its customers to Tell them Why it had to make them pay More. It explained this was due to three reasons and two of them graphically show wartime conditions in London. First since the beginning of the War More than 15,000 Consumers of electricity furnished by the company have vacated their premises and asked that the current be discontinued or they simply left and did not even trouble to have the current disconnected. Odly 5,000 have returned. Even More serious is the loss of Revenue from big office blocks and business premises which though still connected with the company a Mains Are occupied by Skeleton staffs or by caretakers. The usual West end shops reported no Trade. Hotels closed Down whole floors and their banqueting rooms and hundreds of Small residential hotels and boarding houses went out of business entirely. Second the blackout hit the company hard. The thousands of electrically illuminated signs All Over the Piccadilly Leicester Square Oxford Street Regent Street Section of town were shut off. Ninety one Miles of Street lighting in this Section were Cut of and the shop windows in the retail Section were of course no longer lighted up after dark. At the outbreak of War All the theatres and movie houses shut Down for seven weeks. Since the the movies have reopened on staggered hours but Many of the t bean is still remain closed hit by High Coal Price the company operates in the heart of the town the retail shop theatre hotel and swankier residence Section of London. It was not possible therefore to make up for tills loss of business by an increased Revenue from factories working night and Day on War contracts. These new and old factories Are a mainly located in the outlying be Wuis of town. The first four months of the War brought the company a total loss in consumption of 54,000,000 units a a decrease of 27 per cent compared w Ith the same period they a before. Thir meant the loss of a million dollars in Revenue. Third the Cost of Coal has gone tip to double what it was in 1935. As there is every indication Coal will be even More expensive it is estimated that soon the Cost per electric unit will he 50 per cent greater than in 1938. Municipal taxes have gone up. Another heavy item of Cost has been air raid precautions. Owing to its vulnerable position the company had to take elaborate measures of ensure As far As possible. That there would be no dangerous breakdown or interruption of Supply in its area a the most important in the nation s capital.

The cast numbers 2 of pet Alm Ner sketch show makeup of one of Brit Man new George v Cia battleships. By Milton Bronner Nea service Stair correspondent London May 20 while the British flee has been whittling Down Hitler s Navy. British shipyards have enhanced John bulls sea strength with five of the fastest. Best armoured and most powerful battleships which have Ever taken tile Waters these Are now undergoing their trials and at some time in the near future will probably be ready to go. These new ships Are known As the George v. Class. Great Speed has been manifested in their completion. The keel of the George v was Laid Jan. I 1937, and the ship was launched feb. 21, 1939.

In addition to these big guns per hour. Hath of them will have 16 5 1-4-Inch and Many lighter guns to say nothing of very for Midale pompoms and other anti. Aircraft guns invented by the Navy Jand destined to give any nazi bombers at hot time. The most advanced British ideas on underwater defense against torpedoes mines and bombs have been employed in i these ships. In fact these together with the sch Aud deck a i Mot constitute 4n per cent of the weight of these 35.000-ton ships. I they Are among the speediest big i vessels of War Ever built. They Are expected to Ai Fain a bit More i than 30 knots or nearly 35 Miles i per huns. Each of them w ill have i a three aircraft and a complement of 1500 men. Nor is that All if this War goes i on.
