THURSDAY, MAY 88,1985 BLTTMTILLI (ARK.) COURIER MlWi PAQB FIVH Royalty from Palace i AndMud'HutCapiials Arrive for Coronation By MICHAEL NEWMARCH 1ONDON (AP) — Princess Marglierita of Baden Is switching a Jtarched nurse's cap Jor a ball dress, and slipping quietly into Buckingham Palace. The Sultan of Perak can't decide between his blue robes and his purple. Mwanawina III of Barotseland is brushing up a faded state uniform half a century old. And Sobhuza n of waziland is checking on a special brew of beer. In a word, royal and princely families . from perfumed palaces and mud-hut capitals are settling in for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and they are as much agog as London's East End Cockneys. Many have urgent problems of dress, diet or protocol. London's officials and hoteliers—taking in their stride menus for Arab potentates and knowing just where to find an Afghan interpreter in hurry—look like they will get the whole company happily on parade to Westminster Abbey. Thirty representatives of the world's royal families—not including British royalty—will drive from Buckingham Palace to the abbey as official guests of Queen Elizabeth. Scores more, royal visitors, African chiefs and oriental princes have seats in the abbey for the " ceremony. No kings or queens of sovereign powers will be present, since it's against tradition for an independent monarch to attend the crowning of another. In their stead some of Europe's senior princes will attend. Some of the royal visitors illustrate how old-fashioned ideas of pomp and circumstance have changed. Nurse At Hospital T w e n t y-one-year-old Princess Margherita of Baden, a pretty, young German girl with wavy hair and laughing eyes, is a hard-working nurse at London's St. Thomas's Hospital. Her uncle, the Duke of Edinburgh, invited her to put her starched uniform aside and move from the uncarpeted wards to a richly-furnished room in the palace. She'll sit in the abbey as his guest. In one carriage procession will ITALIAN TOTEM POLE—As political speeches ring out in Italy and the national "election campaign draws to a climax, .this "tolem pole" on a Roman street gets scant notice from passersby.

All are from British-protected territories. Dark-skinned potentates with strange, resounding titles are arriving from Africa by almost .every boat and plane. Paramount Chief Mwanawina HI of Barotseland will wear the gold- braided uniform the British presented his tribe in 1902. Then it was blue; today, after covering three chiefs, it's green.

He's brewing his own, African style, during his stay in London. Gene Tierney's Father Freed of Shooting Pony POYLESTOWN, Pa.

Figures presented at the first annual convention of the International Association of Auto Theft Hospital Funds Cut Will Hurt State Projects LITTLE ROCK (/P)— State Hospital Director Moody Moore said yesterday three major hospital projects in Arkansas would be "seriously crippled" if the U. S. Senate approves a House cut in hospital appropriations. The House Tuesday passed appropriation for 50 million dollars instead of, the 75 million former President Tinman proposed and the 60 million President Eisenhower requested. The Public Health Service said Arkansas' share would be trimmed about $465,000 if the Senate goes along with the cut. Moore said tlle'roposed cut would Iso delay Indefinctly eight other planned local hospitals which, would have a total cost 01 two million dollars. Investigators, reveal the average age of an auto thief in this country is 18. He may be Just » good-natured kid trying to show off, a teen-ager looking for a thrill, or a "professional out for a fast buck. Whatever he Is, delegates to the convention say the car thief is becoming a serious national problem. The officers, refusing to discuss the latest auto-napping methods BO "we won't give anybody ideas," indicated some of the more ingenious techniques being used could curl the hair of an honest cop. William J. D'avls, a convention speaker, said frankly, "car theft is out of control." Davis is secretary-manager of the National Auto Theft Bureau, Chicago. He pointed out there has been 99 !-2 per cent increase in car thefts during the past four years. Since officers recover DO to 92 pel- cent of the stolen vehicles, it means a total loss of some 2ff million dollars a year to car owners and insurance companies. Capt. J. P. Daniels of the Dallas, Tex., police department, newly elected president of the organization, estimated 10 per cent ol stolen autos are swiped by teen-agers on a lark. Daniels urges motorists to lock their doors. "I don't think the average kid would knock out a window glass and take a chance on someone learing the noise just for a joy ride." Davis took auto manufacturers to task, contending "too many, late model cars do not have adequately protected ignition systems." This cutback in funds would have no affect on completion of the Mississippi County hospital units in Blytheville and Osceola as federal funds for them were received before construction began. Eight county hospitals in Cliicot, Lawrence, St. Francis, Arkansas, Pope and Pawkner Counties, still waiting for funds hero-re starting construction, will be affected, however. Also hit will be the new University of Arkansas Medtphl Center and St. Vincents Infirmary in Little Rock and Edwards Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith. Actor Is Hurt In Two Folk BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.
