Page Two HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, August 30, 1948 Wilhelmina to Give Up Rule This Week By, RICHARD TOMPKINS Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Aug. 30 — (IP) — Queen Wilhelmina arrives here today to celebrate her Golden Jubilee and to begin her la?! week as Holland's ruler. Cheering thousands welcomed hdr upon the arrival of her special {ram at the Hague, legislative: and judicial seat of the Netherlands, from her rural Apeldoorn estate. ' She" reassumed the active role on queen from Princess Regent Juliana at the Hague for the weeklong 'festivities of the jubilee. Juliana who will conclude her] sedonrt' period as princess re- j gent; will relinquish the duties of | state to her mother until Saturday, j On that day Wilhelmina will alxli- ' cate and Juliana will become que'en. Juliana's formal investiture will take place a week from today. Quaen Wilhelmina's arrival in Amsterdam late today will be the signal for 800,000 of her subjects in 1 this 'garlanded Venice of the lowlands 'to cut loose at last and forget the war and the German occupation. The Dutch already have begun to stir from their traditional stoicism to rejoice In welcome to Wilhelmina and to bid her adieu at the end of a- half century of rule over the Dutch empire. Still, their reverence for Wilhelmina, whoso 68th birthday tomorrow is another cause for celebration will deter or dampen, any orgy of hilarity in the ceremony attending her exit. The older generation is deeply moved • at her departure. Ihe younger will use it as an occasion to dance in 'the streets — in celebration of the ascension of a new queen. ' ; Amsterdam is in gala dress. Ev- frjr electrician that could get on the job has strung lights in the streets and on the city's 430 bridges. The lights shine in the «ky and aparkle from the waters of the city's 52 canals. The ciiy and its people are ready for the moment of their final salute to Wilhelmina, who came to the throne at 18, two years before the twentieth century began and who now is retiring because she is weary and thinks ydunger minds and hearts arc needed, Her only child Juliana, 39-year- old mother' of four daughters, has been trained through the years for her job and takes over in a time of crisis. The empire of 05000,000 persons ; is < straining and threaten-. ing, to come apart. The millions in the overseas colonies of Indonesia arte- in -rebellion, demanding independence."-: *'•'•.• .....

' ADA said he lacks leadership has i" Congress from "an ob- i ligation to act on even the vague" Republican platform, and provides "no immediate hope for Liberal revival" with the party. The ADA resolution called Henry A. Wallace's Progressive party "dangerous and irresponsible/' While the AFL steered e'oar of a formal endorsement, federation leaders agreed lasl week to form a committee to back the Democratic presidential ticket. The presence of Senator Alhcn W. Barkley of Kentucky as Mr. Truman's running mate made 'hings easy for the CIO to follow a similar course, although some of its leaders are more inclined to back Wallace's third party bid. Barkley got a "100 per cent" rating when the CIO looked over the legislative record at the close of Ihe regular session of Congress. He was one of five senators voting the way the CIO thinks is right on all 16 issues it listed as critical. No Republican attained that seed list. It was completed with :he names of Senator McGralh the Democralic national chairman, his Rhode Island colleague reen, and Senators Murry of Montana and O'Mahoney of Wyoming, all Democrats. There was some evidence that the expected CIO endorsement of Mr. Truman involves the case of choosing a candidate not because the union loves him so well but because it loves his chief opponent less. The ADA, for example, had worked openly before and durintr 1he Democratic convention to civ't? the nomination either to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower or to Su- njreme CotJrt Justice William O. were jChuvchill released a recent ex- anli-! change of letters in which he pro po;;cd to Prime Minister Atllec the creation of a European assembly.
