PAGE TWENTY BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.) COUR1EK MKWS FRIDAY, MAY 29, 1988 Bjr Marion Crawford CHAPTER 81 Always the spotlight of public in terest follows Queen Elizabeth, ex plorlng her most private and pel sonal moments in a way whic few ot her subjects would stand It is right, with the Constitutio formed as It is, that Royal Grant should be discussed by the Parlla ment which passes them. But cannot be pleasant to have you income, needs, and expenses at tacked by the House of Common and the result of their debate pub Hshed «11 over the world. I well remember the embar rassed air which hung over Buck ingham Palace while the allow ances paid yearly to Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were be Ing debated. From the age of 11 the Princes, received » yearly income ot 60QC pounds — granted her out of the King's Civil List of 410,000 pounds At 21 this income was raised to 15,000 pounds annually, and at tha time of her marriage to 30,000 pounds with extra grants for the upkeep of Clarence House. To those who think these figures large I would point out what inflated expenses Royalty have to bear. Princess Elizabeth, had to furnish her house literally "fit for a king" to live in. It would not have been in the country's interests for the Heiress Presumptive to live in a suburban bungalow. Just as, when she went abroad, the Princess was our fjo. 1 Ambassadress, so, at home, hers was the home which typified the country. To maintain it she had to employ a staff far larger than her private tastes dictated. She had to have a Comptroller to handle the complex problems of her household and manage her finances; a secretary to handle the huge mail which came to her daily and deal with her appointments and those callers who needed her assistance; there were the kitchen, the backstairs staff needed to support the house in the style which Parliament felt would make it a credit to the country, arid there were pensioners grown old in Royal service who had to be provided for in their retirement. Another expense was the major outlay of entertaining foreign dignitaries who visit ,the country and cannot be entertained by a sandwich and a cup of tea. They must be met with the pomp and ceremony suitable to their rank. Banquets and garden parties sometimes cost the King as much as 3000 pounds each. All this had to come out ol his grant. And, »!••» IT PKINTiel HALL. IN*. DUTHHUT.D »T N«* »«HVI«« mount interest in her affairs taken by some of the public she saw on her day's duty. I felt the strain Ghe was under, watched the way her eyes would somctlmos stray to Prince Philip, knowing that in her heart she must bo saying, "Why can't I marry the man I love? Why must there ^>e this pitiless delay?" It does not require great depths of imagination to visualize tho struggle which must have taken place inside her; the desire of every girl in love to be with the man she loves, conditioned by her training which taught her that Royalty are not as other people— not in any superior way, but only in the disciplined position imposed on them. How often she must have longed to throw it all up, to leave the court which turned her private Princess Elizabeth wore her first fur coat at the age of 18 when she attended Irving Berlin's ali- soldier show, "This la the Army," at the Palladium, imilarly, (he Princess's smaller- cale entertaining came out of ers. This they accepted as part of iieir duty. But it could not hi leasant for them to have to face, n top of that burden, criticism f the monies they are allowe< o little of which remains for their rivate needs. No gir] in love and yet not pub- cly joined by engagement to the she loves welcomes prying nto her private feelings. Yet that 'is what Princess Elizaeth had to put up with all through iat long, trying time beforp t-he nd Prince Philip could face the orld as future man and v/itc. Although that sense of duty I ive stressed so often in these ages is one which made her des- ny of the highest importance in ic Queen's life, do not think that ublic curiosity did not cost her ear. I saw her shaken by the some- lies coarse but no doubt kindly ORIGINAL 4FOLD NO LINING HUH mm "A Midsummer Day's Dream." And it's no "dream" to bo refreshed and still looking your best.

AdjuilobU Bowl J1.50 Snap on $1.00 Old Friends Fuss, Both Are Dead TAMPA, pla. UP} — An argucment between two old friends over paying a handyman has ended. Both are dead. Detective Pete Pranks reported that Louis Oblinger,72-year-old Tampa real estate man, and Raymond BleUacker, 83, a boarding house owner, had not been knowa to have had any serious quarrel for 20 years. But they argued often over which one should pay John Sampson, Bletzacker's handyman, for driving Oblinger on short trips. Franks said lie was confident this difference led to the gunfire which took both of their lives yesterday. Bigdon Lyles, the only witness, said Oblinger asked if Sampson could drive him to town but Bletzacker replied Sampson would have to finish some painting first. Oblinger, wtio lived in the board- life into a public discussion and run away. (To Be Continued) Man Convinced Advertising Pays NEW ULM, Minn.
