ft Prince Charles plans NY retreat: a cozy 21 rooms Associated Press NEW YORK Prince Charles and his new bride are planning to buy a $5 million, 2I-room apartment in a building under ponstruction here, the New York Post said today. , , , , , Buckingham Palace aides met with Donald Trump, developer of the Trump Tower'on Fifth Avenue at 57th Street, during the prince's visit to New York last June, the Post said. It quoted unidentified sources as saying that a deal was on. The sources said the condominium apartment could 4, serve as 4 home for the newlyweds and other members of the royal family during visits to New York, the Post said. Prince Charles and the former Lady Diana Spencer are now on their honeymoon. , Trump declined to comment on the report, the newspaper said. New York magazine, which published a similar report, quoted a Buckingham Palace press aide as saying she hadn't been told of plans for any such purchase. "Personally, I can't think why they (they royal family) would want an apartment in Manhattan," she added, according to New York. "But they do buy property all over the place as an investment." Asia liltd Press WASHINGTON Did the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer enthrall Americans as a "royal soap opera" or did their interest reveal a longing for an element lacking in America's political structure? Marcus Cunliffe, a prominent English historian who is an authority on U.S. presidents, suspects the latter may have something to do with the attention Americans paid to the marriage of the heir to the British throne. Not that the residents of the former colonies regret severing ties with King George III two centuries ago. But Cunliffe believes there are advantages to hay. Associated Press WASHINGTON "We have," said Mary Combs, taking a deep breath, "buddhas and bombers and beetles and baskets. We have moths and mollusks, and a model of the mother ship from 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind.' We have worms and war bonnets. We have " Miss Combs works for the Smithsonian Institution which has, she says, "at least one of everything." All told, the Smithsonian thinks it has 78 million objects, but it doesn't know for sure, and it would like to. So it has undertaken an inventory the first complete cataloging of the Smithsonian collection in 150 years. So massive is the job that others are watching with interest. 'Nation's Attic' takes an overdue inventory "The business and corporate community can learn quite a bit of inventory methodology from an institution that can accomplish a counting of 78 million objects," says Ronald Summers, inventory supervisor of the Revco drugstore chain. As part of what Smithsonian employes call "the great counting," repairs will be made to objects in need for rehabilitation. The location and condition of every object will be noted in computer files. Objects having to be stored will be moved to a $28 million facility the Smithsonian is building In Suit. land, Md., six miles from downtown Washington. The 330,000- square foot warehouse also will offer research space and room for preservation experts to work. EARN S PER HOUR! Chris Crondell Sound Impossible?

"The double role of the presidency makes it an almost unique office in the modern world," he said in an interview at George Washington University here, where he is a professor. American presidents often are torn between trying to be "folksy" figures with the common touch, and serving as "a kind of god for the Americans," said the American studies expert. "Combining the headship of state and the headship of government means that you have a political figure for whom, and sometimes by whom, enormous claims are made to rule and to reign," the scholar observed. "If you have a high sense of patriotism, and feel that the United States must be No. I, then you require I Family Sedan Audi 5000 Turbo 1 vsr.0, 111P401;1 Associated Press Steady as a rock As they set sail Saturday for their honeymoon cruise on the Mediterranean, the Prince and Princess of Wales look cool and relaxed, as if their brief visit to Gibraltar did not cause a stir. Madrid's newspapers yesterday called the visit "an insult" and a "provocation." "If King Juan Carlos is the king of Spain, he also is king of Gibraltar with all the fullness and rights," said the newspaper ABC. Juan Carlos boycotted the royal couple's wedding in London last Wednesday to protest the visit to the British colony, which is claimed by Spain. a figure of very considerable prominence and reknown with exemplary qualities (who is) better than everyone else, as George Washington supposedly was," said Cunlit f e. "And yet, as Washington's own career shows, this make you very much resented, and I think perhaps rightly, by ordinary Americans. They got rid of kings and they didn't want to set somebody else up who was far above the rest." Cunliffe, 58, who plans to reside permanently here, said a constitutional monarchy that is "merely symbolic (and) almost entirely ceremonial is quite useful in this respect." It must have surprised Americans to see King Juan Carlos Intervene last February to help save democracy In Spain, said Cunliffe, noting, "That is not the way historically Americans have viewed monarchy." Associated Press LONDON Ave days after Prince Charles married Lady DI, the royal wedding is still London's premier tourist attraction. Tens of thousands stroll each day along the route of the wedding pro. cession, looking at the decorations that still adorn store windows and taking pictures of each other beneath the flowers and banners still hanging from lampposts. The strollers snarled up traffic worse than usual yesterday along Fleet Street and the Strand. "It's absolutely miserable," said one cabbie stopped by the throng crossing In front of his taxi. Tourists are filing through St. Paul's Cathedral, where Charles and Diana exchanged their vows on Wednesday, at the rate of 30,000 a day. They stand patiently in a line two and three across, stretching two-thirds of the way around Sir Christopher Wren's massive edifice, sometimes in pouring rain. "We are overwhelmed," said the lo Wedding's over, but not hoopla Historian: Americans longing for ceremonial head of state Three of oad 811-racWs 10 best cars for the 80's are sold under one root ......... .... .. . .... sPrIr!! .r.VA " The August,1981 issue of Road and Track says: "a lot of work goes into our periodical 10 Best Cars selection and it is not a job we take on lightly. We don't reach our decisions as a result of whims, but rather through a lot of expense with the cars under consideration." For those interested in a true, uninhibited sports car, there's the Porsche 928, Road and Track's winner of the exotic sportsGT category. It's truly an automobile of exceptional luxury and impressive design; perhaps the most beautiful Porsche available today. In the sports coupe category, there's the Audi Coupe, Road and Track's overwhelming choice notable for its clean, distinctive styling and road performance. Exotic SportsGT Porsche 928 PORSCHE AUDI NOTHING EVEN COMES CLOSE Sports Coupe Audi Coupe And for those who desire a family sedan, we have the Audi 5000 Turbo, a particular favorite of Road and Track's editors. It was felt that: "if the sporty Turbo had not been available, the normally aspirated (non-turbo) 5000 costing $5000 less would still have been the winner in the category." It's designed to carry five people comfortably, which it does, while at the same time providing "an immense amount of driving pleasure." Certainly a laudable automotive achievement. In all, these three cars represent the finest automobiles available today. Why not .come in and test drive one? And you'll know why they drove off with Road and Track's top honors.

"It's really taken us by surprise. Between 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday after. noon, we've had at least 100,000 visitors." The number is far more than the cathedral staff can handle. The whispering gallery and the crypt are closed. The stock of souvenir pamphlets is nearly depleted. For the first three days after the wedding, the register that the royal couple signed was on display. Sightseers could look at it for five , seconds for 55 cents. It was moved to St. James's Palace, and the bride's bouquet is at Westminster Cathedral. "There's really nothing left to see," said a vendor. The lines yesterday included a group of scouts from Germany, nuns from Hertfordshire, disabled people from Stoke Mandeville Hospital at Aylesbury, outside London, and busloads of tourists from Japan, France, Sweden and the United States. "Now, this is not a formula for the Americans unless one wants to go to an extreme of counter-factuallty and suggest that maybe the United Kingdom and the United States should have a federal union and you take Prince Charles and Lady Diana, or Queen Diana, as she'll be some day," said Cunliffe. "All of that is obviously not going to happen. Obviously millions of American Irish wouldn't have it, and many others wouldn't, and I'm not wildly keen on monarchy myself," he said. "Nevertheless, I think it's one of the problems the American haven't solved in their own conception of the presidency." Cunliffe is the author of a series of trenchant portraits of 39 U.S. presidents in "Burke's Presidential Families of the United States of America," a genealogical work by the same publishers who have kept track of British royalty since 1826. .....-,...
