i - Mall Section, Thursday, Nov. 28, 1968 Pomp Prompts Conflicts OverP rince's Investiture about the 200.000 pounds $480 .000 the government has allotted for the investiture, a sum considered pitifully inadequate by loyal Royalists and a ludicrous waste of money by rigorous Republicans. But the most interesting investiture conflict is subterranean. It is between traditionalists and modernists about how the ceremonies should be organized and decorated. The traditionalists feel thM there Ditpitch tht Tim, London LONDON - Controversy buzzes around great state pomps like wasps around a jam pot. The investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernarvon Castle next July 1, although more than seven months away, has already attracted an adequate ration of discord from Welsh nationalists nostalgic for 1282 who threaten to boycott the occasion (if not worsei . to protests W HOLIDAY GIFT BOOK $ kti II ORIGINALLY unww ORIGINALLY unuj !

J 98 I ANTIQUE BOOK CATS, CATS, CATS are certain rules from the past about dress and ceremonial which have to be obeyed if they are going to be true to the historic occasion. Modernists, less interested in precedent and the past, would like to use the occasion for a display of modern design. The sort of area wITere secret battle could be joined is over whether the Prince of Wales should wear for his investiture glorious robes redolent of the middle ages, or a 20th century lounge suit. A tip of this conflict, so far wrapped in costly protocol, has. emerged from the taciturn committee rooms where the investiture is being organized. It is about the official souvenirs. As always happens for coronations and similar events, for 19 the Queen has relaxed the rules that forbid the reproduction of the royal arms, emblems, and portraits of items for sale. Just for the year of the investiture, manufacturers will be able to produce and purvey ashtrays with a picture of a smiling Prince Charles, Announcing . . . NEW HOURS! 8:30 TO 6:00 P.M.

The College of Arms has produced a brochure of the approved versions of the assorted insignia: the ostrich feathers badge, the Prince's ine-scutcheon of the principality of Wales, and so on, with such scholarly advice as the fact that the Prince"s dragon badge is distinguished from the Queen's in being "gorged with a label." (This means that the beast is wearing a color. I The brochure includes a price list for approved designs with a license to reproduce them ranging from 5 to 52 pounds ($12 to $124.80) depending on their complexity and whether they are hand-coloured. The most expensive is the Royal Achievement, that cornucopia of nine lions, the Scottish Unicorn, a grassy compartment and assorted heraldic wild life. At the same time the Council of Industrial Design, distressed by what it described as the "ugly, shoddy, and utterly worthless" tourist souvenirs available in Wales, has organized a souvenirs competition for the investiture. More than 500 items have so far been submitted, including the customary views of Caernarvon Castle, a piggy-bank with a red dragon incongruously emblazoned on the pig's side and heraldic jewelry worth 900 pounds ($2,160) presumably for royal or at least American visitors. A number of souvenir makers have written to the council complaining about the size of the fees charged by the College of Arms. The College of Arms retorts that it has never been compulsory for manufacturers to buy its investiture drawings. But anyone who designs his own version of the royal insignia would be wise to consult the college, for a modest consultation fee, to be sure that he has got the heraldry right. Several souvenir makers have done this and have been advised that they have got their vert and their gules muddled up, or that dragons have claws. To reproduce the royal arms in an armorially incorrect manner is not only "very discourteous to the Sovereign and very stupid", it could also in theory, although probably not in practice, lead to the offending souvenir being suppressed by the Lord Chamberlain. At coronations in the past, mugs featuring excruciatingly bad pictures of the Sovereign have been banned. (C ) N.V.

DGHTING INDIANS OF THE WEST 10.00 5.95 HOLLYWOOD (NEA) -Time hangs heavy on the heroic hands of movie stars when they have to wait for the technicians to set up the next scene. Exhibit A on the set of Mark Robson's thriller, "Daddy's Gone A-Hunting," things were at a standstill. The only people working were the crew, setting up the lights. I found Carol White, the English girl who zipped to the top on the back of "Poor Cow," and Paul Burke in her dressing room. What were they doing? Playing ticktacktoe. "She beats me all the time," Paul complained. "I'm good at chess, but I just can't play ticktacktoe." Carol laughed. And she tried to get comfortable on the uncomfortable couch in her dressing room. It was hard, because she was pregnant in the scene, and the stuffing made her a bit ungainly. Carol and her children are staying in California for awhile at least. She has another film due to start in January, and she is thinking of buying a house here and making this her home. Her two young sons like it here. "I asked my 6-year-old," she said, "if he liked school in Los Angeles better than London, and he said he did. I asked him why, and he said, 'Because there are girls in the school here.' Just like a man, isn't it?" The third star of "Daddy's Gone A-Hunting" is Scott Hy-lands, and he has a starring role in his very first film. Producer-director Robson is excited about Hylands. "He is a new star," Robson says, without beating around the verbiage. "It's very exciting to see it happen maybe it happens only once or twice in a director's lifetime. 4.95 GUNS AND AMMO FOR HUNTING BIG GAME 12.50 179 illus. Experience of an expert.
