By MILTON BRONNEK NEA Service Wrifrr LONDON.— The world's loneliest Ing.

Both nations avc expressed tlieir Joy and plea- ure over the union In both has been empliaslzed (hat his is a love match pure and sim- le. And indeed It has been known or some years that Kiug Boris was mitten by the charms of the young talian girl.

To counter France and encircle Jugo-Slavia' has bseri he constant policy of Mussolini n the Balkans. To this end he played up to Hungary. With this nirpose, he backed Zog and made King of Albania, which is a umping off place tlireatehing the tery heart of Jugo-Slavia. It's i Real Love Match The love match between Boris and Glovanrm .puts the final seal on Mussolini's work.' Bulgaria, diminished in size and crippled as •o armament as., a result of her. being a German, ally. in. the 'world war, is already grateful to MUFSS- Inl for what he did for licr in the matter of. reparation settlements recently. This royal match virtually makes Bulgaria a future ally of Italy. In many -ways the royal bridegroom is the ablest and most, versatile ol reigning European" monarchs. Also one of. the wisest. His father,' the Ex-Czar Ferdinand, was crafty, intriguing, ambitious •and utterly cynical. He loved power and did not rest until he had succeeded in getting the powers to recognize his title as Czar instead of a mere reigning Prince or King of Bulgaria. "When he abdicated after the world war was lost by the Central Powers, his tluone fell to Boris, who loved the simple life, did not care for pomp and glory and display, and was as democratic as a prince can be. A Klnj With Many Talents He Is earnest, well meaning and Intelligent. He understands the Bulgarian peasants better than his ministers. Is at ease among ttiem and well liked by them. He loves lo potter about with machinery and can drive a railway locomotive with the best of them. He is the best royal linguist in Europe. He speaks Bulgarian, English, French.
