STEJEL PEN SHORTAGE. I There is a chance that the old-fashioned quill pen may come again into favour. The exigencies of war have made its steel successor very difficult to obtain. "The demand for steel pens has been much greater than before the war," said a manufacturer to a representative yester- dav "owing to the absence of German makers from the market. And now the Ministry of Munitions has comman deered most of the pen factories. "Some nuikes of pen it is impossible to obtain at all now others can be got only in small quantities. It is probable that increased or ders will be received for the quill, which is still popular a.mong- merchants of the old school and some Government departments." Even in peace-times, it would appear British pen factories were engaged on a number of such minor war munitions as gun springs and other small articles in steel. During the war, as was only natural, neither the labour nor the metal has been adequately available for the manufacture of pens. —————— ——————
