London Police Charities There should be a prompt and generous

response to Lord Trenchard's appeal on behalf of the Commissioner's Fund for the charities and recreations of the Metropolitan Police. The old practice of selling police concert tickets from house to house was not very desirable, and there was general relief when it was stopped. But this clumsy plan brought in 118,000 a year or more, and the money must now be found in another way. We hope and believe that the Commissioner's new plan will be more remunerative than the old one. Londoners cherish an affectionate regard for their police and will be glad of a legitimate opportunity for expressing it in cheques directed to the Commissioner at New Scotland Yard.
