Harrison asked many questions on (be Red proposal to send equal numbers of troops of the five- nation repatriation commission to ttka custody of balking prisoners. • Would the troops be military police, civilian police or infantry troops? Mow would the five nations divide control of the prisoner oampe and would they be jointly operated by representatives of al five nations? Asked About Food? Harrison asked whether thf troops would bring their own foot *od supplies and how supply prisoners would be accomplished Some of the other questions Har rieon set forth on the proposed re patriation commission were: How would decision be reached in subordinate bodies to whom powers of the commission are delegated? Mow would decisions be reached in subordinate bodies to whom powers of the commission are delegated? What was meant oy the Red proposal that the commission would have authority to exercise It* "legitimate functions and responsibilities?" How will procedures be standardized among five nations at the prisoner camps? How would differences among troops at the camps be settled? What did the Communists have in mind about languages to be used by the repatriation commission and its subordinate agencies, particularly in dealing with the prisoners themselves? Almost all the meeting was taken up by Harrison's questions. When he finished, Nam II asked if there were any more questions and Harrison replied, "Undoubtedly the replies you make to the questions I have just asked will result in further questions and discussions of your proposal." Harrison's questions did not touch on the major concession of fee Communist proposal which was aa agreement to the Allied plnn to keep those prisoners who refuse to go home in Korea while their disposition is decided. HOT did his questions deal with the Ked agreement to shorten the time the unwilling captives would be held in neutral custody.

Fell Near Village The plane fell like a streaking ball of fire just three miles from Bombay and Cairo. The compan ions, who helped her take her baggage to the airport bus las night, said she had no fear of flying but had lost heart in doing any sightseeing on the way home The other dead in today's crash were listed as three German engineers, a Briton, a Dane, a Thai- Innder, a member of India's parliament and other Indians. Thirteen of those aboard were passengers, five were crewmen. Airline officials said the fire apparently broke out in an engine shortly after the Douglas-built transport lifted into the air.

As the little boat surged iip on the crest of the swell to the quay- side, the Princess made ready to jump ubore. But before she could do so the boat was down In the trough of the wave again, with the quayside looming high above. After two attempts had failed, she tried again. Philip stood beside her. AS the boat rose he signaled to Genera! Browning, and at exactly the right movement gave the Princess a little push, which sent her right into the .General's waiting arms. "Your Royal Highness ought to rest for a while," said the Island's doctor who had been waiting with the crowds, knowing she might need his kindly aid. She shook her head. "Give me Swo aspirins and a glass of water." she said. "I shall be all right." A few moments later she climbed into the horse-drawn carriage which was to bear her round .he island, for there are .no motor cars on Sark. The crowd of islanders cheered. The Princess smiled back at them. They little knew the effort it cost her. ;YOUR FRIENDIY THEATRE; "Entertainment At Its Best" SUNDAY and MONDAY ,cnt.

It was In the afternoon, just as I was getting ready to leave the Palace. As I have explained, I was already living at Nottingham Cottage; my rooms at the Palace had been taken over by Prince Philip so he could be near his wife at the time of the birth. But I was still going daily to the Palace to sit with Princess Margaret and discuss whatever subjects came up. The strict schoolroom routine, such as we had known in the past, had been abandoned. I knew that my real work as Royal Governess at the Palace was over. But in the new, busy life which Princess Margaret was leading her mother thought an hour or two of quiet, unrestrained chat on general subjects might soothe her. On this afternoon I found that she had already gone off to some engagement. I was Just putting on rny hat and thinking about a small piece of Spode china I had seen that morning. in an anticme shop off Kensington High Street. It would go well, I thought, on the low sill of my sitting room. I was already planning its capture when Sister Rowe came into the room. Sister Howe is a kindly looking, capable woman who habitually wears the uniform of her nrofes- MOX In West Blytheville Show Starts Weekdays 7:00 Sat. Sun 1:00 Always A Double Feature SAT.

I was always particularly Impressed by her cuffs, which were starched to the stiffness of steel and sat on her wrists like handcuffs. She had a pleasant, low voice. I could imagine it soothing generations of babies. "Oh, Miss Crawford, Princess Elizabeth would very much like you to see the baby now," she asked me particularly, to find you." pould that little golden-haired girl I remembered in so many engaging scenes really have grown up to be the mother of this Royal child? As I stared down Into the cot, memories floated before me. Soon Sister Rowe brought m» back to the present. She whispered, a forefinger to her lipe. "We mustn't disturb him," ehs said. Together we tiptoed to the door. When I got home I sat down with George to write the Princess a note to tell her that I had seen , the baby. , "He is a lovely child," I wrote. "You must be very proud of him." With the note I enclosed a box of peppermint creams, always the Princess's' favorite sweet. \ Like all of us at the time, she called the Prince "The Baby." I had a feeling that to Sister Eowe he would always be just that. Names, I suspect, do not matter much to her. It is His Majesty the Baby with whom she is concerned. To her, every baby is a king. But the thought that she was dealing here with a real and future king must have added zest to her task. I quickly abandoned thoughts of my Spode and followed her along the corridor. The baby lay in the large, airy room which had been Prince Philip's dressing room. The blinds were drawn, but it was not too dark to see the baby clothes hung round the fireplace — just as they might be in any other nursery. The cot stood to the right against the wall. It was an impressive affair, shaped like one of those you see in the illustrations to the etor- ies of Hans Christian Andersen. It was slung on a cream enameled metal frame under a sort of hood from which hung a double curtain of elaborately trimmed cream organdie. It was the same cot that Queen Elizabeth bad laid in 22 years before. The room was very still and smelled. of soap. Sister Rowe led the way toward the cot, her apron rustling crisply as she moved. It was clear she thought the baby marvelous. He lay on one cupped hand, sleeping quietly. The other small curled fist, no bigger than a buttercup it seemed, lay over the cov-' from the Home Farm at Windsor. The next day she sent a note thanking me for the letter. She still found it hard.^she said, to believe that the adorable baby was really hers. She had always heard that all mothers felt the same way and was so happy and proud of her new baby son. She was glad, too, to be told from so many o.uar- ters that his arrival had given happiness to so many people besides Prince Philip and herself. Her letter seemed to me to complete fully my years with her. In that time I had watched her grow from childhood to girlhood, become a radiant bride, and now, the fulfillment of every woman, a proud mother. Princess Elizabeth, before the baby was born, had the same rations as other expectant mothers — sewm pints of milk a week from her supplementary ration card, I half as much again for her meat ration as the normal book provided, and a bottle of cod-liver oil supplied through the Food Office every six weeks. Friends would send her orange juice, which was then becoming less scarce, and she was lucky to have a constant 'supply of eggs erlet. To me he looked oddly like King George V. "He's lovely," I said. "We think so," said Sister Howe. She stressed the "we" in an oddly moving way. For the first few months she fed the baby herself. She was anxious to give him as good a foundation for health as possible, knowing this to be of great importance. (To Be Continued) V- ' .. ' V-' : .:#.&- ;":•-.
