SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Political Dead" Curious About Windsors IIETSMEI ".Street, of Political Dead Ones" Unofficial Title Of Avenue liy MILTON KKdNNKK NCA Service KlalV (.'iirre.sjJoiiJcnl 1'AfUS.—Announcing ihelr desliv to liave Hie privacy ami obscuiTty r , . lo ordinary folk, Edward ,j.d WullLs Windsor have [jtiliig- fnuiigli settled in Hit "Street of the.' I'olitintl Dead Ones" in Vt-r- ;at!los. oniclally. of course, Ihc street on which is situated (heir rented Chateau de la Maye, is known n. Rue dii Parc-ile-Clagny. Just a.s In reality, the cliulean is not a Chateau nt 'all. It -is just n plea- ':anl, countrirtcd house which he longs to Madame Du]my, the American woman who owns great Purls newspapers. The street has l;een called that of the Dead Ones because of sain ot the neighbors of llie Duke ul Windsor. In the near vicinity, foi instance, tliere dwells the willow of the former king of Portugal Mancrl the Unhappy. For vear.s like an uneasy, pa'lu ghost. h< wandered around Paris and Lon don, waiting, hoping against ho;n for a eall back to his throne and country. It never came. And now of cause, his widow knows it can never come to her. Almost the nest door neighbor of the Windsors is Alexander Mil leranrt. This one-time Socialist politician moved ever more stead Ji^-to '(lie Right, gathered in high ['utticfs as lie went and finally be- tiiinc President of. the republic. But not for long. The parties of the Left got power hi Ihe French Parliament. They so halett Mil- leraml and some of the things hi! did, which seeme-1 like assumption of real authority, thai they forced him out of otTicc btfore his term expired. Millernr.d is still a Senator, but politically he is corpse. Being' sutli a street, the windows of tlic houses in (he Rue du Pa re- de-Clancy remain shuttered until late in the morning. There is no .special reason (lie inhabitants should get up ' early. The Windsors have already followed (lite fashion. With all time on his lianfls, there is no reason why Ihe Duke should hustle out with the early birds, to get in his i Baine. The moving of the Windsors to the Chateau, ims ceased to be a seven dnys"wa!idc.- to ihe natives |P>itsidc of a few rewspaper men aiid photographers, nobody hangs around except some small, ambitious tradesmen, nftximis to sell the Windosrs their meal and groceries ami other household reeds One privileged person is the little "facteur," the letter earrie who brings the mail to the folk in Oils street. Bui lie no longei cherishes any illusions. The flrsl day he.came to No. 47 with mail there was no holding him. When tradesmen and newspaper pcopli were chased away by the "flics,' he wns privileged. He had registered letters. He would see th( Duke because, of course, the Diiki would sign for his mail. But bitter disappointment! The neares he got to the Duke was his secretary who signed for the mail. Diotisancls Pack Streets As Nav.i Cetol>ralc ("German Day" ! LIN'^, Anslrlu.
