TUESDAY, OCTOHBK 17, JO-M Ex-King Carol Unwelcome Here Not Allowed Ashore When Vessel Docks At New Orleans WASHINGTON, Oct. 17 (UP) — Former King Carol ot Romania wns not allowed to go ahsore when his vessel docked at New Orleans yesterday for the same reason he 1ms "ecu denied admission to this! country since he fled from Eur- He is considered an "undeslr- " alien by the United Slates Government. Attorney General Francis Biddie gave that reason when nskcd why Carol, now cnronte to Brazil, was denied permission to leave his vessel, carol left Mexico a few ''ays ago, ' A year a g 0 , Carol hired an American press agent, to "sell" the American people his story and seek permission to come with Madnme Litpescu, to the United States. His campaign and press agentry were short-lived. This government made plain that it would not, welcome him. American officials indicated that ihcy were not displeased by the forthcoming exit to Carol from this hemisphere. -They snid the attitude of this government, was that Carol docs not belong over here and is not wanted over here, and that the sooner he leaves the hemisphere for Romania or elsewhere, tlie better. Regarding, his aspirations to regain Uic tiironc of Romania, the American altitude is that it is a question for the people of Romania to decide. There is strong helief here that the Romanian people will not want Carol again to replace: his son, the present, King Michael. But if they should, and could ; manifest such a desire freely, the United Slates probably would not make an overt move to prevent his reascention. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.).
