WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Times Warns of Marriage Of Margaret to Townsend By HAL COOPER LONDON (AP) — The influential London Times thundered a warning today that a marriage between Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend "would cause acute division among loyal subjects everywhere." The Times counseled the princess to remember that "happiness in a full sense is a spiritual state and its most precious element may be the sense of duty done." The powerful publication thus entered for the first time the stormy public debate over the romance between Princess Margaret and the divorced Royal Air Force hero. The editorial policy of the Times the church. is kept under close scrutiny by board of trustees which includes the Archbishop of "Canterbury, ranking prelate of the Church of England. The church hierarchy strongly opposes remarriage of divorced persons. Another ex-officio times trustee i- the lord chancellor—at present Viscount Kilmuir—the highest law officer of the British government. Editorial pronouncements of the Times on matters of importance to the government and church have accordingly come to be accepted through the years as especially signi'f.' :nt. Fresh Speculation Fresh speculation on the romance between Margaret and Townsend was voiced yesterday .ifter a surprise announcement that Queen Elizabeth IT plans toj visit Nigeria in January. Buckingham Palace said the Queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, will tour Nigeria from the latter part of January until the middle of February There had been no previous hint that such a trip to West Africa was being planned. Royal tours usually are announced much more in advance. The announcement caused some quarters to wonder if the Queen planned to be out of the country if her younger sister and the 40-year-old RAF group captain plan to wed about that time. The Queen as titular head of the Church of England, could not be expected to put her approval on a marriage between Margaret and Townsend that is disapproved by Rules of procedure in the House of Commons yesterday postponed ar attempt to get some clue of the princess' intentions. The question period ended before Labor Member Marcus Lipton could ask Prime Minister Eden—as he has said he will—whether the govern- e'rnment plans to ask repeal of Royal Marriage Act of 1772. The next question period in Commons will come tomorrow. An Eden statement that his government plans to as krepeal of the marriage act would be taken as evidence that the princess and the commoner plan to wed. The princess became free marry as she chooses last August when she turned 25 years of age, but the marriage act provides she must give Parliament one year's notice of any There still such plans. official hinl that Margaret has in fact decided to marry Townsend. But they have met almost daily for the past two weeks and there has been nothing to dispel the Impression that she is at least strongly tempted to go ahead with it. Yesterday Margaret rushed home from a royal parade wel coming- President Craveiro Lope, of Portugal on a state visit ant Townsend quickly joined her a 1 Clarence House, her London resi dence. Later the princess went to Buck ing-ham Palace for a state ban quet for the visiting Portuguese dUnitary while Townsend enter tained a few friends at a dinner in his apartment.

HIROSHIMA, Japan (ti — A 12- year-old girl who as a baby was only a mile from the center of the Hiroshima atom bomb blast died yesterday of lymphatic leukemia which a U. S. doctor said may have been "a late effect of radiation." Dr. Robert Holmes, director of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission, said records showed that Teiko Sasaki "was exposed at a distance of 1,655 meters (1,193 yards) and was shielded (from radiation effects of the bomb) only by a wooden frame building. "It is therefore possible that this case of leukemia is a late effect of radiation." Japanese newspapers listed It as the 14th death so far this year from wartime A-bombs. There was no confirmation from commission officials, who explained that It is technically impossible to say positively whether deaths had been caused by A-bomb effect* or other causes.
