The collector feels a glow of virtu ous pride, "I shall sell these for two lie declares to a. friend at the conclusion of the deal. What particular pleasure there can be In reducing the profits of the scantily clad and wretched-looking vendors is a mystery hid in the con- science of the social leader or the keen collector.

The officials of Scotland Yard have declared themselves opposed to the measure. A spokesman said-bluntly 'We are against the suggestion.
