London, May 5.-England has start-
ed an investigation of the post war
growth of alleged trusts and monopo-
lies.
A profiteering committee which has
been looking into the activity of elec-
tric light companies and lamp bulb
manufacturers, in a report recently
made public, says that "a trade com-
binations does exist among electric
light manufacturers in this country
and exercises a. powerful influence
over the conduct and development of
the" industry."
It is known as the Electric Light
Manufacturers' association, the report
says, and has been created primarily
in the interests of three firms-the{
British Thompson-Houston company,
the General Electric company and
Messrs. Siemens Brothers. It is re-
ported to include from 90 to 95 per
cent of the industry, to fix prices
and regulate output, says the profit-
eering committee.
Fix' Prices
The prices fixed by the association,
the report says, became the standard
for all lamps sold in this country,
whether made by association or non-
association manufacturers, or import-
ed from abroad. Because of this
standard price policy the general pub-
lic reap no'benefit from lamps of
cheaper manufacture, the advantage=
going wholly to distributors.
Standard vacuum lamps, now sold
to the public for three shillings, states
the report, could be sold at two shill-
ings at which price the manufacturer
and distributor would still have a sat-
isfactory working profit.
"One and a quarter million half-
watt lamps," adds the report- "sold
to the public in 1919 at twelve shill-
ings and sixpence each were purchas-
ed in Holland by three associated
manufacturers at about three shillings
a lamp. They could have been sold at
not more than eight shillings which
would still have left ample margin
for the importers and distributors.
Importers and distributors between
them made profits on these lamps,
of something like $1,400,000 over and
above what would appear to us rea-
sonable.
Under American Control
"Since the largest of the three
dominant firms," continues the report,
"is under the majority control of an
American electrical concern, there is
some danger that the interests of the
British lamp industry may be subor-
dinated t American interests."

Home Is in -Rome -
His home is in Rome in the house
of Mascagni.- He is married and has
two children, Velia and Ruffo. Ruffo's
love for the artistic is inherent, as
his family has been noted for genera-
tions for its production of well-
known painters. His sister, Fosca, is
a distinguished poetess and his
brother, Ettore, is a composer of note,
having just completed an opera en-
titled . "Malena." His mother was a
distinguished singer and it is from
her that Ruffo doubtless inherits his
extraordinary vocal equipment.
The family name is Titta, Ruffo be-
ing his Christian name, the reversal
having been made -for the sake of
euphony.

TITTA RUFFO TO SING
AT FESIVALQEIN
Titta Ruffo, who sings a group of
miscellaneous arias in conjunction
with the Chicago Symphony orches-
tra and its conductor, Frederick
Stock in the opening, concert of the
May festival series, Wednesday even-
ng, May 19, in Hill auditorium, is an
Italian baritone conspicous in the
Chicago, Opera company.
Ruffo is 36 years old, of Tuscan
parentage. He was born ;in Rome,
where his father carried on a suc
cessful business as an iron worker.
Titta became, so profiicent in the
craft that he was given many spe-
cial commissions on account of his
artistic specimens. Many . of his
works are the pride of. Rome and va-
rious other Italian cities. The beauti-
ful bronze wreath which reposes on
the tomb in Paris of the martyred
Sadi-Carnot, once president of France,
is an example of his chiseling.
-Discovers Voice Early
He discovered that he had a voice
while still comparatively young and
entered the famous Santa Cecilia con-
servatory in Rome, where he studied
voice. He tutored under several pro-
fessors who endeavored to discourage
him as they believed he had neither a
voice nor dramatic ability. Ruffo at-
tributes his succes to the teachings of
his brother, Ettore, who is also a mu-
sician of note and who taught the now
famous singer all he knows of song
lore.
Ruffo made his debut at the Costani
in Rome, as. the Herald in "Lohen-
I grin." Since then he has sung in the
principal musical centers of European
and Latin-American countries. In
Italy. and South America. he; is as
great a drawing card as "Caruso and
his recent successes in- the United
States would lead one to assume that
the near Future will bring him the
universal homage of North American
cities. The minimum fee for one of
his performances is $2,500.
