Former Service Men , Beggars In London LONDON, June 16 (Associated Press Mail) One of the most distres sing sights to American visitors in London is the appallng number of ex-service men begging on the streets Former soldiers and officers, some of them with distinguished records of gallantry, have found it impossible to obtain either private or government employment, and are eking out a miserable existence by open mendi cancy, peddling, grinding handorgans tinging, or giving gymnastic exhibi tions in the streets. American tour ists rnd others are openly assailed in the streets for the pi'f e of a meal or lodgings by these unhappy men. A picture of another Vir.d is visible in the rresent busy and lavish social and court centers of London. The extravagance and improvidence among the rich, American visitors de clare, would feed many thousands of the nation's demoblized defenders, while the money needlessly lavished on dress, style and empty court ce remonials would keep them for a year.

He says he is in favor of strict regulations and control in such matters, and has decided to call a conference of broad casting firms and representatives of press agencies and newspapers with a view to reaching a solution of this much vexed problem. "How far the lifting of copyright and non-copyright matter from tho newspapers and press associations for wireless use may be permitted, said Mr. Kellaway, "is a most im portant question. The representa tlves oi newspaper enterprises have pointed out. that it would be intoler able to allow broadcasting firms to j lift the matter indiscriminately from the rapers and spread it to the pub lic. They have rightly said that news was not dead throughout the country j for a considerable time after its pub- lication, and that their property rights in this news must be safe j guarded." I The Postmaster-General said he was impressed with the arguments of the newspapers and press associa tions, and he was hopeful it soon would be possible to issue regula tions protecting their right. "I see no reason why some agreement cannot be arrived at between the newspapers and the broadcasting firms," he added "although I admit there is cogency in the suggestion that even in regard to non-copyright information the broadcasting plan will set up a new form of competition with the news agencies and newpapers."
