PA« TWO BI,YTHEVTLI,E (ATUU COURIER TUESDAY, MAT 19, 19» ELIZABETH By Marion Crawford Am* Ctrrnm tt CHAVTER 12 At the »g« of 18 Princess Eliza- talth came of age and achieved the dignity of a "Household" of her own, although she continued to live at the Palace. Por her it was. the official end of girlhood and the beginning of her career as an important public figure. From then on, as one o( the four Counsellors of State who would act for the King in his absence or other emergencies, slie would take nn increasing part in public affairs. She wns at the age when other girls could expect to enjoy new freedom of choice and action, to make new friends nnd to go about with them. For the Princess, her coming out meant also the assumption of new and heavy responsibilities. It came to pass shortly before thi shallowing of the visit ot Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip, «s Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, to Canada and the United Stales. But already, ni, 18, she had been assigned her own armorial bearings consisting of the Royal Arms differenced by her own heraldic bearings, displayed on a lozenge Instead of a shield—and her own Standard which flew wherever r,ho went in Canada and the United States. .It Is the Standard which flew above Clarence House when she was at home. From the end of the war Princess Elizabeth had her own Lad- ics-in-Wniting and her own Private Secretary. And immediately after her marriage General Sir Frederick Browning. K.B.E., C.B., D.S.O., was appointed Comptroller to her Household.

I had personal reasons to be pleased to hear of his appointment for I cherished nn association with his charming sister, Mi.ss Grace Browning, from the days when Princess Elizabeth nnd Princess Margaret, as children at Buckingham Palace, were enthusiastic members of the Palace Company of Girl Guides. There was some talk among the Household about it, Some people wondered why such a man should accept a comparatively self-effacing post when others with far more opportunity for personal advantage must have been open to him. But I welcomed (he appearance of tin experienced man whose interests lay outside Court routine. I thought he would bring Princess Elizabeth n breath of air from the world outside. It Is hard for a Princess nurtured in the hothouse of a Palace to get a true sense of values. I had always tried to show her that Palace life was not like that which others led. and In her careful. considerate way she had listened to me. Some time later I received « note from Sir Frederick. Would I kindly meet him so that he could learn a little about the character of the Princess? He had been told that I was the best person to approach; and remembering what his sister had told him about me, he looked forward to the meeting. I replied that I would be delighted to give what information I could. But I must have hinted at the thought, which Members of the Frinow ElU.btth's room In Bucklnrhum Palice.

Why should he, a man of action and ability, choose such a comparatively sedentary position? I had n charming little letter posted from the house in Cornwall In which he and his wife, Daphne du Maurier, were living. It was dated Jan. 10, 1948: I do not think you need assuring that, when I was approached about being Princess Elizabeth's Comptroller, I realized very fully that. I was undertaking what I consider to be the most honorable and important appointment which could be offered to anyone in the world. The sincerity of that paragraph made me more than ever keen to meet him. Here was someone, I felt, who would be coming to Princess Elizabeth full of enthusiasm for the job.

Churchill said under questioning he still holds the view that the United States should continue negotiations with the Beds at Van- munjom on behalf of the United Nations, although Britain reserves the right to express its opinion "frankly and plainly." He declared: "As a matter of general policy I am not prepared to say whether or not there were specific consultations on any particular occasion. I should like in this connection to repeat what I said last Monday. I said :I must remind the house, as I have done several times, that the United States is mandatory to the United Nations and has borne nineteen-twentieths of the burden in blood and treasure. "The matter is not one in which we have either the right or responsibility to decide. But it is our duty without separating ourselves from our great ally to express our opinion frankly and plainly to them as occasion offers." Probe of C47 Fire Ordered TEL AVIV, Israel, W>) — The U. S.

Membership In Labor Unions Is on Increase WASHINGTON W)—Labor union membership now totals 18i4 to 17 millions—an increase of bctvfeen one-half to three million since 1949. These figures in a Department of Labor directory include SVi million members for the AFL and five million for the CIO, with others scattered in smaller unions. Estimating union membership is difficult, since some unions refuse to submit 'tiny figures. The department takes what data it has to make Its estimate. Since 1949, when union membership was estimated between 14 and 16 millions, Census Bureau statistics show the nation's total labor force grew from 60,814,000 to 61,518,000. Army Switches To Dextran for Blood Needs WASHINGTON «V- The Army has switched from blood plasma to dextran, a substance made from sugar, for all its requirements at home and abroad. A major reason for the change, said an Army medical source Saturday, is that some plasma causes hepatitles, a jaundice-like ailment, and dextran does not. The Army official emphasized, however, that public donations are still vitally needed for other uses. He said the switch from plasma to dextran was made after "utterly convincing" tests. Prior to the 15th century, England's Thames River was spelled as Temze, whence it gets the pronunciation of temz. Stay Beautiful ...by avoiding Monthly Look 1 Ho M-tili iliu on hn fin bic»H crimps.
