I put this question today to Nicholas Tchaykovsky, member or the Central Co-operative committee of I'etrograd as he sat in front of his desk at com mittee headquarters. Tried in IH07 as a revolutionist ami acquitted he is now doing his bit for Russia. His seusa- tive face, remindful of portraits of Ijouglellow, surrounded as it is by snowy beard inid lutir, became very eager. "Done any good!" Tie echoed, "It has worked wonders.
