'Stockholm, 15 Oct,  (Associated Press.) - Leaders of Russia's Soviet Government have put a ban on the giving of Christian Names to children, it is reported, because they are considered "reminiscent of the reactionary system." It is expected that an order will be issued soon forbidding their use.
Numbers are to be substituted. Thus, three children of a family named Petkoff may in future be known as "Petkoff One, Two and Three," respectively.'
