I remember an old friend of the Royal Family saying to me, as we watched the crowds at one of the first garden parties at E'-vck- Inghnm Palace after ihe war: "When I was n child I saw Queen Victoria pass in a conch. Although she was very old then, she had in her eves a calm confi- carry nn increasing load ot responsibility temporarily lifted from her father's shoulders. ' When she at last found time to fly out to her husband, some peo- I pie were openly critical. No one would have questioned the right of another naval officer's wife to do the same thing, providing she left her children in good hands. Was princess Elizabeth to be less a wife because she was Heiress to the Throne? Surely her stature is the greater because she is indeed a good wife dence nnd deternrnation which I j and mother, have often seen mirrored in the' eyes of Princess Elizabeth." The remark surprised me a little at the time it was spoken. I had too many happy memories of Princess Elizabeth flushed with laughter, romping in the schoolroom or gnrden, to see her as a Queen. But now that I have watched her come into womanhood and take on the Royal dignity that belongs to her. I am convinced that the man at the garden party was right. There are other things I have remembered, too, as I've watched Princess Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip together. I have thought of the responsi- Aiui what babies in the world have been left in better hands than those which care for Prince Charles and Anne? Later what kindness they are tended, by two capable nurses, under the watchful, loving eye of their grandmother. bilities the Princess mast bear at the same time as her duties as a wife and mother. It was just as much of a trial for her to have her husband overseas making his tour of duly in Malta as it would have been for any other naval officer's wife. experienced first lieutenant. But they were w.rong, as Prince Philip quickly showed them. When he left his ship to come home, his crew felt that they had lost not only a brilliant Captain, but also n close friend. For a naturally proud nnd regal person, Prince Philip has a strange simplicity of approach. I have never seen him other than courteous and correct to everyone. And if he ever meets a shipmate of whatver rank, who has served with him, he Is always quick to speak to him, wherever the two of them are. In this way hp. introduced to the King and Queen an old friend he saw in the crowd surrounding the his sister Princess j Royal Family at a garden party. I shall show with And similarly, nt a reception for the Royal couple in Nottingham, he met the man who had been his personal servant In 11. M. S. Wallace during the war. They chnttcd toTotbcr for a few minutes. Then the man said, "I would like to introduce rny wife, sir." p,.i-,.. e pjjjijp looked at the woman. "I hope you are tar'ng as good care of him as he used to of me," he said, and went on: :"Now you must meet my wife." Princess Elizabeth was at the other side of the room. Prince Philip went over to fetch her. "I should like you to meet r-^ie friends of mine, darling," he t'-.'d her. Then he Introduced the waiting couple to her. "This is my wife," he said. (To Be Continued) Tornadoes Giving U. S' Bad Pelting This Year By ROBERT GOI.DENSTEIN CHICAGO (AP) — Scientists don't know precisely why, but the a S. Is taking a heavy belting from tornadoes this year. The season for twisters, generally running from April through July, ijot oft to a roaring start when tornadoes struck somewhere on 14 days during April. Another rash, including the disastrous twister that crushed the Waco, Tex., business district, followed in early May. Since 1916. April has had an av- whirling air is thought to be from And Prince Philip, who is a sailor before he is a courtier, is above nil n good father, anxious /or his children's welfare. He has lived his life among men who judge one another by their real worth. When he took command of the frigate Magpie in the Mediterranean, lie was the youngest Lieutenant-Commander in the flotilla. A naval friend of mine told me thflf. though he was always popular In the Navy, there were some who thought his appointment sprang from privilege. They expected him to be "nursed" by an erage of 8'i tornado days. The April record of 18 tornado days was set in 1329. Tornadoes are the smallest—but sometimes the most vicious and death-dealing—of all storms. Experts know the weather conditions favorable for breeding these ' ominous black funnels, but they don't know the exact cause. The U. S. Wenther Bureau and Air Force are conducting studies to help them in forecasting their oc- curence. Generally, an explosive situation occurs when a layer of cool, dry air spreads over a thick ground layer of warm, moist air. This warm air Is lighter and creates a turbulence when it attempts to rise suddenly. Affecting a much larger area that the tornado, a Spanish word meaning twister, are the' hurricane or typhoon and the cyclone. Harry Maynard, research assistant in the. University of Chicago's department of meteorology, gives these definitions: Small but Violent Tornado: a very small, localized violent storm. The funnel, from 100 feet to one half mile wide, is a partial vacuum. The speed of the 300 to 500 miles an hour. Houses or buildings caught in the funnel's vacuum sometimes virtually explode because of the heavier air pressure inside the structures. Hurricane: a violent wind Btorm that forms in the tropics. A hurricane, a huge round cone of whirling air, may be only about 100 to 300 miles wide when it is formed but its size becomes larger as it travels. The winds in a hurricane are 15 or more miles an hour and move in such a large circular motion that they appear to travel in a straight direction. Most hurricanes begin in the tropical part of the Atlantic Ocean near the West Coast of Africa, In the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico. Typhoon:: a hurricane. The name typhoon is applied to the violent tropical cyclones that sweep over the Pacific Ocean from the Philippine Islands to Japan and the coast of China. Cyclone:: a low pressure area in which winds move in a counterclockwise direction someti m e s laving a diameter from 500 to 1,000 miles. It can cause intense storms, or its winds can be as weak as 10 miles an hour. Longshoremen's Union Junks 'Shape-Up' System of Hiring Queen Elizabeth II his always hid i wide variety of Interests.

Last nfght the 20-member Executive Council of the ILA announced steps to eliminate the "shape-up" Hiring system, which the PL pictured last February as an open Invitation to racketeers. The AFL also ordered the longshoremen's union - r to purge itself of known criminals and set May 20 as the deadline for It to get the move under way. Cautious, tight-lipped members of the council refused to say whether this was a separate order of business during the two-day secret meeting resumed in a Baltimore hotel this morning. Ryan, president of the JLA for 27 years, is under indictment in, New York on a charge of larceny of $11,390 in union funds. While Ryan presided over the Executive Council meeting yesterday. Sen. Tobey (R-NH) announced the U. S. Attorney in Washington would be asked to determine if perjury was involved in conflicting testimony given Senate Investigators by Ryan and nn- other witness before Tobey's Senate commerce subcommittee. Until the ILA council's announcement that the "shape-up" hiring system would be abolished, there was talk that the longshoremen might defy the APL clean-up order. Hearings by the New York State Crime Committee had produced disclosures of graft and racketeer- Ing along the New York waterfront. Much of it was blamed on the "shape-up," under which union | pier bosses dally designate who confined to her home for several wi n work anci who won - t _ days, is reported Improved. | Outside the New York area the sas Stale Teachers College, Conway, was a weekend guest of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Johnson.

The closing "speech from the throne," prepared by Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent's Liberal government and read by Supreme Court Justice Patrick Kerwin in the absence of Gov. Gen. Vincent Massey, said "It is anticipated that the session now concluding will be the final session of the 21st Parliament." Political circles generally have expected for some time that St. Laurent would dissolve Parliament and set the election date on his return, about mid-June, from Queen Elizabeth's coronation. Aug. 10 or 17 are most frequently mentioned as possible election dates. ' Woman Frees Dogs from Pound SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (/P)—A woman vexed because the dog-catcher imnounded her dog freed more than 300 from the city pound yesterday. Police Chief H. D. Allen said two or three animals that may be infected with rabies were among the dogs the unidentified woman turned loose.

George Meany, head of the AFL, refused to accept the vote as compliance with his Organization's order to rid the ILA of the "shapeup." He said the question put to the longshoremen was loaded. Last night Louis Waldman, general counsel for the longshoremen's union representing 60,000 members on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, said only 15 or 20 per cent, of the New York area dockworkers were hired by the "shape-up" method. He said the Executive Council's decision provided that all New York contracts include agreements on how men will be hired and that the "shape-up" be specifically prohibited. ^ • Current contracts expire Oct. 1.
