    	You're in a light-hearted mood, Anselm?
    Re sgians, have a care if you value them.
    Not long ago I was told by a friend that on the arrival in New York the 
    sgian he had in his suitcase was confiscated and he was not able to re-
    claim it.  It was a family piece of some 120 years at least.   No 
    compensation or discussion. 
    He was told -  NO Knives Allowed!
