THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE FTVK ELIZABETH By Marion Crawford frrmtr CMWDMN It HIT Majesty CHAPTER 14 In my time at the Palace, Princess Elizabeth's secretary was Mr. John Colville, known to everyone as Jock. He is a brilliant young man who was on Winston Church- Ill's staff during the early part of the war, before he insisted on joining the RAP. Each day Jock would drive to the Palace from his mother's charming little house in Mulberry Walk, Chelsea, and go through the Princess's correspondence. He had an office just along the passage from the Princess's rooms, to which he would be summoned when she was ready to read her letters. It Is a popular misconception that Royalty are surrounded by Advisers — men appointed with the sole object of guiding them through all the moves of their lives. This is not so. The Royal Family, at least, have very firm ideas of their own about what they are going to do. But naturally they do depend on their secretaries to advise them about things outside their experience. In this way Princess Elizabeth will go through the many,. many requests she gets — to open this bazaar, or name that ship — and pick the ones she thinks most worthy out of a thousand-and-one requests. -It is her secretary's job to make which for some reason might start sure that she does not pick the one one of those wrangles which occur when people of prejudice feel they hove been slighted. For example, Royalty have to be careful what connection they have with religious organizations outside the Church of England- of which the King is officially the temporal head. It is here that the secretary's knowledge is so valuable. He can say, "Ma'm, I think it would be better to refuse that offer. If you accept, there might be some hard feelings among so and so . . ." In this respect only can the secretary be called an adviser. I remember feeling very sorry for both Jock and "Boy" Browning when they were publicly taken to task by a certain newspaper Siamese Twin Boys Die INVERNESS, N. C. (/P)—The Siamese twin boys born here Tuesday died last night about 33 hours after birth. Hospital officials said the death of the babies, whose breast bones were joined, was due to the fact the 19-year-old mother, Mrs. Max Wyr- was, was in a toxic condition before their birth. She was reported in good condition last night. The babies earlier yesterday had appeared in good health. Peron to Boss Horse Racing BUENOS AIRES, Argentina W) — President Juan Peron's government is taking over Argentina's horse- racing, the million-dollar-a-week betting system and the recently burned-out Jockey Club that runs the tracks. A government bill to nationalize the racing setup, put before the Peronista-dominnted Congress yesterday, said the Finance Ministry would run things for the benefit of charitable and social welfare projects into which the Inte Evita Pcron funneled vast government funds. While serrinfr with the ATS (British equivalent of the WACs),| Princess Elizabeth could change * tire, drive or repair a truck j with the best of them. for "allowing" Princess Elizabeth HOLLAND NEWS to make too many engagements so soon after the birth of Princess Anne. I sympathize with the secretary and the Comptroller because Queen Elizabeth is a reasonable person in all save on direction: she will not listen to pleas to spare herself. I remember once when Princess Elizabeth was still in her teens she woke one day, feeling very 111 indeed. But it was all I could do to persyade her to stay in bed. "I must not take the easy way out, Crawfie," she kept insisting, and this while she had a temperature which would have put most people out of action for two or three days. ' This is a fair example of what her secretary and Comptroller have to deal with. Jock came to me one day to complain: "Craw- White-Portci' The wedding of. Miss Jo White daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Osco White of Cooter, to Byron Culton Porter, son of Mrs. Nannie Porter was solemnized Saturday at 8 p.m in the Methodist parsonage in Blytheville by the Rev. Roy I. Baglej in a double ring ceremony. Their only attendants were Mr. .nd Mrs. Kenneth Berry, close friends of both the bride and groom. Mrs. Porter wore a white-black nylon sheer monotone print with a scoop neckline treatment and white tissue taffeta insert. Her hat was a white straw crown with tiny rhinestones matching her dress. She was a member of the 1952 graduating class of Cooter and has since worked as receptionist for Dr. Edward Taylor of Steele. The newlyweds took a short wedding trip in Memphis. They will make their home in Holland. Attends Reunion Mrs. Voris Workman, accompanied by her husband, attended a class reunion Saturday night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Baker fie, I wish you'd speak to the Prin- ' in Caruthersville when 10 alumni, cess. She will take on such an a teacher and a sponsor of the 1923 enormous program. She won't listen to me when I tell her she is working too hard. She jus! says, 'Jock, I can't disappoint all those people. 1 ' • I told him there was little I could do. I always found Princess Elizabeth most amenable if I were appealing to her on behalf of someone else. But if I approached her about herself, she would brush my protests aside. "I've just got to do it, Crawfie," she would say. "After all, it's my job." "Crawfie," Princess Elizabeth said to me just before she left to inspect the Grenadier Guards whose Commander in Chief she had just become at the age of 16, "I've got such a fluttering feeling inside." But she never let her "nerves" affect her performance. (To Be Continued) Caruthersville High School gradu- atin class met for their first party together in 30 years. Co-hostesses were Mrs. Louis Hiller. Mrs. Robert Hawkins and Mrs. Hiram Pigmon, who helped plan the event. Attending classmates were Mrs. Ralph Baker, formerly Helen Dillman; Mjs.
