THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1933 .( 0 UEEN : GIRL Nation Rejoices; Boris and > Joanna Felicitated on Happy Occasion MARINES, BACK FROM NICARAGUA, DEPLORE COLD WEATHER AT QUANTICO BASE (AtHoainied Prem Leased Wire) SOFIA, Bulgaria, Jan. 13.—All Bulgaria was celebrating the birth of a princess this mornltiR—the first child of King Boris III and Queen Joanna. The mother nnd baby g\r\ wero both reported In excellent, health. Although Bulgaria's constitution prescribes direct succession by tho mnle line, tho princess wns welcomed with it warmth of affection reminiscent of the reception accorded Queen JoRium when her royal husband' brought her home from Italy two years ago. Tho event naturally renewed spoc- .tilaMon as to tho religion In which any children of Borln and Joanna will be brought up. The law requires that the ruler of Bulgaria must bo a member of the orthodox church, and special permission of the pope was necessary before Boris married the Italian princess. 'The princess' birthday falls Just 17 days before her father's anniversary. The king will be 39 years old January 30. the present heir to the Bulgarian throne Is King Boris' younger brother. Cyril. Boris succeeded his father, Ferdinand, who abdicated In 1018 and has been living since In the duchy of Saxe-Cobunc-Gotha In Germany. One of the most appealing royal romances of Europe was culminated by the marriage of Joanna ' and Boris. There^were almost Insurmountable religious bars to tho union. After years of negotiation, the pope, by special dispensation, ruled ' tho marriage possible. To the Vatican and to Italians generally, tho Catholic marriage ceremony at Assies!, Italy, /October 25, 1930, was the real marriage, and Bulgarian rites which followed were merely a routine public function.
