Princess' 'Castle' Crumbles L LOS ANGELES (AP) — Her summer cruises on the Nile and a $2,500 monthly Allowance are things of the past. She lives no longer in an elegant palace but in a West Los Angeles apartment shared with her mother. Even the love which triggered her financial difficulties has turned sour. Fathia Ghali, sister of Egypt's last monarch, King Farouk, was close to tears Monday as she sat and watched remnants of royal riches hauled into bankruptcy court. "This is a difficult time," she whispered, bidding farewell to the last of her jewelry in the stark courtroom. Glittering on a table were two earrings, two necklaces, a ring, a pin and a bracelet — treasures which belonged to her mother, 81-yearold Nazi! Fuad, widow of King Fuad I, ruler of Egypt from 1922 until 1936. Mrs. Ghali's attorney had hoped the jewelry would bring $500,000. But the highest bid — $180,000 from Los Angeles auctioneer Sid Bush — was too low, said Judge James E. Moriarty, so the receiver may sell the jewels privately to pay off Mrs. Ghali's debts. Mrs. Ghali and her mother, who once lived in a palace, now reside in a comfortable West Los Angeles apartment. Their rent and other expenses are paid by a family friend whom they refuse to identify. The women filed for bankruptcy in 1973, listing among their assets the jewelry, mansions in Hawaii and Beverly Hills, Calif., five cars and an Arabian stallion valued at $5,000. The princess married a young Egyptian diplomat, Riad Ghali, in 1950. Ghali was a Christian, not a Moslem. The queen gave her blessing, but an angry Farouk stripped both women of their royal status after the marriage. Farouk was overthrown in a military coup in 1952. He died in exile in 1965. Mrs. Ghali recalled that her mother received about $5,000 a month as a royal allowance and she, as a 19-year-old princess, received half that amount. When their royalty was taken away, all their property and possessions in Egypt were confiscated, leaving them only what they carried to the United States, where the queen was being treated for a kidney ailment. For many years, the ex-queen and former princess led an active social life centered at a 28-room mansion in Beverly Hills. When Mrs. Ghali separated from her husband in 1965, she moved to a home in Hawaii, now up for sale for $350,000. When her husband stopped support payments in 1972, Mrs. Ghali turned to domestic work as "the only thing I could do at the time, having no college background." Moriarty said "she cleaned office buildings at night." Six months later the anonymous family friend enabled her to stop work, but the debts remained. Mrs. Ghali said she hopes to return to Egypt in January and is considering an attempt at running an import business, travel agency or public relations firm. The Markets New Wheat $2.57 unchg.

If the commissioners weren't hearing complaints'or requests about roads in the county, they were out actually' viewing the roads and prospective roads. Before leaving to tour some of the county roads and view to petitioned road sites, the commissioners met with Mr. and Mrs. Hershel Oliver to discuss improving a five-mile section of the county roads leading to the Oliver home several miles south of Holcomb. Oliver said he felt the county should elevate the road in order to allow water to run off the road when rain or irrigation water gets onto the road. He said there are several large mud holes in the road and, because the road is lower than the surrounding land, water ponds on the road and doesn't run off. He also requested that the road be black topped. "It's high time to raise that road," Oliver said, "and you're going to have to black top it in order'to get it to hold." Oliver said that past county commissions have ignored the road's state of repair until it has deteriorated to a shape that it tears up vehicles and is impassable when it snows or rains in the area. Commission Chairman Bob Buerkle told Oliver the commission had already decided to fill in the mud holes and do what could be done for the road. "We'll help you out down there. We're going to work on your road, but as far as black topping it, I just can't see where we could do anything right away," Buerkle said. After talking with the Olivers, the commission met Monday Busy in District Court A busy day in Finney County District Court resulted Monday from motion day in court. Nine persons were either sentenced or had their cases set for trial in separate cases in District Court, with another case set for preliminary hearing by the County Court.

He was sentenced to the custody of the secretary of corrections for 1-10 years on each count, but placed instead on a five-year probation plus restitution. Mark Eugene Good, 19, 1009 N. 3rd, entered a plea of innocent on two counts of sale of marijuana. Trial was set for Oct. 26, and Good is free on a $7,500 bond. In Finney County Court, preliminary hearing date of Sept. 27 was set for Douglas King, 18, 1003 Pats Drive. Monday, he entered a plea of innocent on a charge of possession of marijuana. King is free on a $250 bond and his own recognizance. with Sagebrush Estates developers Bob Vincent and Phil Dick. The developers requested that the commission take some action on an earlier request that the county pave a one-mile stretch of main road through the Sagebrush Estates. One condition of the request was that the developers pay for the cost of the materials involved in the project. County Engineer Claud Shelor estimated the materials cost of the project to be about $3,500. Commissioner Larry Goss moved that the county pave the road if the (owner) developer) pays for the materials and the job be done only as the county road crews Bribery Trial Set in October Jury trial for Gustavo G. Bernal, Garden City, on a charge of bribery is Oct. 4. The trial is expected to alst two days. Bernal's case was bound over to Finney County District Court on June 11, after he had been charged with bribery in connection with his occupation as drivers license examiner. Finney County District Court Judge Bert Vance said today that a question posed as to whether part of a testimony was or was not correctly interpreted from Spanish was tentatively scheduled to be settled today, but arrangements had not been made for an outside interpreter to be present. Vance said the question would probably be settled Friday, if arrangements for an interpreter were made by that time. finish other, higher priority work and find time to handle the added project. Goss said the motion would also apply to a similar request made by Bill Streeter, that a road past his home be black topped if he pay for the materials. The motion passed 2-0 with Commissioner Greg Shaw not voting. Shaw owns land in Sagebrush Estates and said he felt he shouldn't vote on the request. Commissioners then at- tended two road viewings, one south of Pierceville and just north of the Finney-Gray county line, to check sites for roads which have been requested to be opened by landowners in the area. Commissioners then spent another hour-and-a-half looking at the condition of road and bridges and noting some priority road- rehabilitation projects that will be necessary in the near future. Farmland, Union Reach Agreement World-Wide Survey Shows Poverty, Living Costs Top Problems WASHINGTON (AP) — A worldwide public opinion poll of non- Communist nations shows that poverty and the high cost of living are considered the most pervasive problems, and the notion that one can be poor but happy is a myth. The global survey revealed that "nearly half the people of the world are engaged in an unending struggle for survival," said pollster Dr. George Gallup, who summarized the findings of the 16-volume report Monday before the Senate Foreign Relations committee. Unemployment ranked as the No. 2 problem in a 2'/*>-year survey conducted by Gallup International Research Institutes and funded by the Charles F. Kettering Foundation. The survey polled 10,000 individuals in some 70 nations comprising nearly two-thirds of the world's population. Communist nations and others with restrictions on public opinion surveys were excluded. "In the planning stages of this global survey it was hoped that somewhere in the world a nation would be found whose people are poor but happy," Gallup said. "We didn't find such a place. "The one finding from the survey that had great impact on those of us who directed it is the appalling amount of poverty in the world today. It is difficult for people in the industrial nations to realize how many persons in the world face a daily struggle to get enough to eat. And most of what they earn, which is pitifully small, has to be spent for food." The report prompted Sen. Dick E. Clark, D-Iowa, to criticize U.S. arms sales policies. Clark said the survey showed that the nation is distributing less than one-third as much food abroad this year, 5 million tons, as it did 10 years ago. But at the same time arms sales will be over $10 billion this year, up $1.6 billion over 1975. Clark said the emphasis on arms sales was as much the fault of the countries which buy the weapons. He said the Gallup survey "indicated an enormous gap between people's need and the needs that governments, theirs and our own, see." "In South America and in Africa people are relatively more optimistic about the future than in advanced industrial nations," Gallup reported. But people in the United States, Canada and Australia, Gallup said, expressed most satisfaction with the quality of life. Next in order, he said, was Latin America, followed by Africa and at the bottom Southeast Asia. • A new three-year working agreement was reached between Farmland Foods, Inc.

It was the annual Governor's Day at the fair, and Bennett— sporting a new, more closely cropped haircut—planned to visit with fairgoers throughout the day.

Contributions can be sent in care of the First National Bank at Syracuse.
