The second and third extended round an opening to the roof, their capacity 4 even greater than the ground floor, because they covered the space occupied below by stores. At tho rear of tho opening on the middle floor was an oichestra, its music audible fo" all three floors. It was a glare of light, a blare of sound, a rushing welter of waitresses and tea-ers, a hazy atmosphere of cigarette smoke for which women were as responsible as men. Tn a, few minuses I knew that tlie proximity of the new restrictions (they were due tho following day) had lot down tho bars. Instead oe a tea it seemed to be more of a lunch-although even under the old regulations tho ingenuity of tho restaurants bad contrived to make them more or .ess of a farce. Jt has always been a fact in most restaurants that if you insisted there was no limit to ehe quantity offered. And on this last day of com* parative indulgence tea-ers ate bs� the hour. Strictly limiting" ourselves to the regulations, as we have always done, we contented ourselves with a toasted scono. But around us course* after course disappeared. Besides the usual choice of cake and toast, which come within the rations, there was an endless variety of blana manges, peach melbas', and-fruit jellies, which are the unratloned extras. But to-day every second guest was adding Ko tiro meaU eggs on toast, sardines on toast, and other food.-; whose nature was no*, apparent. Probably many were making it the evening meal while waitins' for the theatres to open, although the regulations forbade more than the ra-' tioned amount before a certain hour. T n e n e \ v law imposes a limit o t an ounce ana a half of bread, cake, scone, and biscuit between throe and Stive-thirty. But, as under the old riilcs, how a diner js to be prevented-should the waitress lend herself to it-from following on� ration . with another is not clear. Hereafter thc customer must provide his own sugar. Formerly then* must have been tons oC sugar consumed) every afternoon in London tea-rooms alone, all In addition \tu the ration of half a pound per week. The crowd of tea-ers was interesting". Roughly there would bu one man to two or three girls. The latter worn mostly of the matinee type, with a number ot! older women in the company of soldiers. All were well dressed, light hearted, throwing themselves unreservedly into the relaxa^ tion of the moment. But what puzzled me was the composition of tlie male portion. Within my range ol vision were twenty-seven in civilian clother and fifteen in khaki, all seemingly under the age of thirty-five. 3t was confusing, but an analysis explained. Of the twenty-, seven civilians no fewer than twenty-j three were obviously Russian Jews, their hair curled or carefully brushed, diamonds on their fingery and in their ties, gold tipped cigaret holders -smiling, flirting, lounging foreigners who are making "themselves wealthy by taking the jobs of Britons, who are exposing their lives to protect thorn. The other four | were made up of a couple of East , -I JndJaiiH, one silver-badge, and one tasses through the lines they stand erect at attention, with a military bearing that would make any soldier j unmarked.
