Kiia iins the courtesy title of Grand Duchess. But it's no more than courtesy, because Germany is no longer im empire, but a powerful Nazi stnlc, aiicl Russia is no longer an empire, but a powerful Bolshevik stale. • Tlie df (Terence between Louis and lik Kiva is that she dave not go back to Russia, whcrcns the yoiing bridegroom Is quite safe in his native Germany. Whatever the thoughts of his grandfather, the former Emperor Wilhelm II, the old man d.ire not utter tlicm. because the Nazis could cut off his revenues and his place of exile in Doom, Holland, would then be a mournful spot, indeed.

All around him he saw troops on the move, heard the throb, of military music iinii the thunder of scose stepping, nut he wanted to be an artist. His mother dissuaded him from (hat dream. A dutiful son he went to Berlin University and took his degree. Then he did an linhetird of thing in the Hohm- zollera Tamils-. He announced his intention of going to Hie United States and taking n job Henry Ford had offered him in his automobile works. .
