PAGE TWO (AUK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JIM1I I, ELIZABETH By Marion Crawford tint* ftwnMM to HitMtjnij CHAPTER The yetr round there Is someone, somewhere, who has something that would be helped by Royal p«tron«ge. Lengths of tweed, wool, illk, r»yon, cotton nnd new design «nd texture, millions of lengths, are considered every d«y «s an offering to her, for It Is known that her acceptance will cre»te a boom in the particular product. All that Is offered is not accepted. The Queen wants to know all the details of anything that she is offered: who made it, and why, and If her acceptance is likely on the one hand to show undue favoritism, or, on the other, to inspire productivity that will materially help this country and the Empire. In the case of textiles that are accepted,- these are nov always immediately made up into suits or coats. They are ticketed and stored against the day when she may need them. But what a temptation it must be if a particularly beautiful length of tweed is offered to her, of which she would like to have hi til »t rmtHtia* HULL. INC. T MI • V T I D • t NBA •CHVIflg .i us'u.n uHs ^ucen has no personal, choice. If a public occasion warrants the sparkle of diamonds, on Ihey must go whether she likes them or not, and often a matching tiara which Is « heavy, cumbrous, tiresome thing for a young girl to have to wear 'throughout the evening. She has une tiara -which she especially loves. It Is an exquisite thing made of diamonds In the form of delicate marguerites. It can be taken apart and worn as a necklace, two clips, and a bracelet, ami when she unpacked it she was delighted. Later, showing It to me, she exclaimed, with eyes as bright as the diamonds she was loldlng: "Isn't It n lovely thing, Crawfie?" (To Be Continued) Queen Elizabeth wears a diamond tiara which belonged to Qnecn Victoria, her great- great-irandmollicr. 'ou may think, tremendous com cult, lo ! pcnsattons. Such as her teautitvi have to forego It because to have jewc]g wll)dl sccm [0 splu . k!e CV(1| it made up would necessitate a ' more bright completely new range of accessories upon which she must noi embark. After all, she must set an example, and since early childhood both Princesses were taught by their mother and : grandmotncr that nothing must be wasted. You and I have a choice in the matter. If It suits us to sell for a mere song the good brown handbag we bought last winter and (he shoes that go with it becnuss we've seen a much nicer outfit, in blue and want entirely new accessories. we're at liberty 40 do as we like about it, and no one any the '•wiser. And perhaps, every now and | again, t, piece of seemingly wild extravagance is the birthright of every woman if she enjoys It nnd feels better and smarter for having thrown her old shoes and bag over the windmill. But Sot for the Queen. The par' tlcularly heady pleasure, which is never understood by men, but always by other women, will always be denied to her. So, too, are other such temperamental escapes and outbursts. The wilful pleasure of using the whole of one week's egg rations the first week that eggs become 'less scarce on a mouth-watering cnke, and spending the whole of Saturday afternoon alnging away in the kitchen as it bakes, is a feminine delight so natural, so normal, that few of us stop for a moment to think about the privacy and the liberty In our own homes, and re' jolce that We Were not born to a rank that denies Its holder so simple a womanly pleasure is this. As against the more simple pleasures which Just do not occur in the .life of a Queen, there are, ightly against the i-v/avmtl and texture of her lovely skin. : Imagine having jewel cases fu! I of the most exquisite diamonds | rubies, emeralds and pe.irls. fit that there is something to sull everv dress, every occasl >n you mlglit think! But think again. Can ti.ero be much pleasure in having so many? Isn't there infinitely more joy in the small, intimate, semi-precious stone, chosen with tremendous especially for you lo mulch your eyos, to enhance your skin, rather than a load of Crown jewels which you might not care for? Some women dislike emeralds, others say sapphires do m,t suit them, and there are women wno will never wear diamonds at all, saying that they are too hard. In Gen. Williams Buried Today PASADENA. Calif. (IF} — Funeral services today were scheduled here for Maj. Gen. John P. Williams, 86, .World War II Chief of the National Guard. He succumbed Saturday to cancer.

India Orders 7 Automobile Plants Closed NEW DELHI. India (/P) — The In- llan government has ordered sev- :n foreign automobile companies ;o close their assembly plants here vlthln three years but has told tve other companies manufactur- ng cars locally they can continue. Commerce and Industry mlnls- er T. T. Krlshnamacharl told a s eonferenc yesterday the Amer- can Ford and Chevrolet and Brit- sn Morris companies were among hose affected by the closing order. They were told they must concen- rate on maintenance and servicing nstead of assembling cars. Those allowed to continue assem- ly operations Included the Amer- can Studebaker and Dodge manu- ictureres. Kriscnamicharl said the order lined at developing a local auto- lobile industry and had been re- ommended by a tariff commission. jross to Head : reedom House NEW YORK m— Ernwt A.

Consider some Items which might well appear, but don't. There's no reference lo medical service, yet the health of your •' i community, of your family and of yourself is protected by the vigilance of the men who check and treat and recheck water to make sure it's safe for you. There's no fee for securing reduced fire insurance ratas, yet the whole schedule of these rates is substantially reduced if an adequate public water supply — so necessary to an effective defense against fire — is available. There's no contribution levied for community development, yet key industries can produce goods and provide employment only because a dependable water supply is available. Without a continuing flow of water, sewers could not be properly flushed or streets kept clean. You could conceivably obtain enough water through your own efforts to satisfy your'thrist, clean your body, and water your garden. But only through an organized system of collection, storage, distribution and treatment can water resources be mobilized to produce the broader benefits which you, as a citizen, enjoy. The price which you and all consumers pay for the water you use helps to meet the costs of making these benefits available to all: Without a water works system, the cost of urban living would be prohibitive 1 \ Blytheville Wahr Co! "Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity" Formula of Oil for Anointing Queen Elizabeth /s Big Secret LONDON UP) — A coronation secret: the chemical formula of the oil with which Queet>; Eltz&beth II wll be anointed tomorrow. In what Is regarded as the most sacred portion of the coronation ceremony, the Archbishop of Can terbury will dip his fingers Into the anointing spoon and touch the forehrad. The ceremony, to be seen by no one else, will be carried out under a canopy held over the pair by /our knights of the Garter. But no one associated with the coronation will reveal the precise nature of the oil, which Is- being prepared by a Bond Street firm of chemists. There was concern, apparently, that cosmetics manufacturers might make and market a similar reparation and pretend it possessed some fantastic virtues. ' Formerly the oil was saved from coronation to coronation. Very little is needed to anoint one sovereign, so a pint would be enough ,for a long history of kings and queens. But Britain's stock of anointing oil was destroved by German bombers, which damaged a portion of Westminister Abbey. A new supply was ordered and, it being fresh, Elizabeth will have no grounds to complain, as did Elizabeth I, that the "oil smelt ill." The constituents of the oil with which Charles I was anointed were recorded, and presumably recipes for anointing oil do not vary great ly over the centuries. Charles' brew contained musk, civet, ambergris, flowers of benzoin nnd oils of'oran^e flowers, roses, cinnamon, Jasmine and sesame. The act of anointing, a very ancient practice. Is surrounded with mysticism and gives the corona- tion a deeply religious aspect. The Queen will become one of Ood's anointed, just as are bishops of the church. The oil, until It Is needed, will stand on the high altar of the ab bey. It will be consecrated shortly before the service by the Bishop of Gloucester. VA Medical Programs To Be Aired WASHINGTON W)—The possible effect of budget cuts on veterans' hospital and medical programs Is due for a thorough airing In the House this week. There have been reports that a 279 million dollar slash In funds requested by former President Truman for the Veterans Administration would mean closing of six or more hospitals. The VA. however, has said new hospitals may replace old ones In the fiscal year starting July 1. but no hospitals will be closed as a result of budget cuts. The House Veterans Committee *s summoned VA officials before it Wednesday for questioning *on the. reports. The House appropriations subcommittee handling V. A. funds Is scheduled to meet Friday for final action. Subcommittee Chairman Phillips (R-Dallf) declined to comment on reports that some medical care funds may be restored.
