FROTHBLOWERS' CHIEF

SIR ALFRED FRIPP LEAVES OVER £100,000.


Sir Alfred Downing Fripp, of West Lulworth, Dorset, Surgeon-in-Ordinary to the King, who died in February, aged 64, left £101,903 (says a late English paper).

He bequeathed £1000 upon trust for the 20 years following his decease for English university lectures on the subjects of "Happiness" and "Success." In his will he stated:, "l have not the faintest intention of making any further gifts to charities," adding that this decision was in view of the time he had devoted to charities and the moneys he had collected for them, and having regard also 'to the trend of modern legislation.

Sir Alfred was well known as "Grand Typhoon" of "The Ancient Order of Frothblowers," which, under his presidency, raised large sums for charities.
