    Background: ZURICH, ALREADY ONE OF THE LEADING FINANCIAL CENTRES, IS KEEPING ABREAST OF TIMES. A NEW INVESTOR'S CLUB, WHERE MEMBERS MAY BRING THEIR FAMILIES AND SIP COFFEE WHILE SCREENS FLASH THE LATEST WORLD-WIDE STOCK EXCHANGE PRICES, HAS RECENTLY OPENED IN TOWN. IT IS PROVING A HUGE SUCCESS, AND IS PATRONISED NOT ONLY BY LOCAL PEOPLE BUT PERHAPS ALSO BY THE FAMOUS GNOMES WHEN THEY TAKE TIME OFF FROM THE WORLD'S FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.

    THE CLUB WAS ESTABLISHED BY A LARGE SWISS BANK. PREVIOUSLY PEOPLE IN ZURICH TENDED TO WATCH STOCK EXCHANGE PRICES FROM THE STREETS IN BANK'S WINDOWS, NOW THEY CAN DO IT IN COMFORT. COFFEE IS AVAILABLE AND STRONGER DRINKS CAN BE SIPPED AT THE BAR FOR THE MORE ADVENTUROUS. FIVE TELEVISION SCREENS OPERATE CONTINUALLY AND BRING THE LATEST FINANCIAL NEWS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AS LIGHT MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND. A COMMENTARY IS ALSO PROVIDED WITH THE NEWS.

    WHOLE FAMILIES COME TO THE CLUB AND LADIES ARE PARTICULARLY POPULAR. A SPECIAL BEAUTY CORNER HAS BEEN SPECIALLY SET ASIDE FOR THEM. BEHIND COUNTERS, PRETTY GIRLS, WHO KNOW ALL ABOUT THE STOCK EXCHANGE, HELP THE PUBLIC, THEY ARE THE STOCK HOSTESSES. COMPUTERS ARE USED EXTENSIVELY. THE LEADING FINANCIAL PAPERS ARE AVAILABLE AND CAN BE READ ON THE CLUB'S PREMISES.

    TWO MEMBERS OF THE CLUB WERE INTERVIEWED.
