HITAIN'S IMptRIAt DIIHABPS Tories Wish Sun Would Set on Empire Loyalists . §y TOM A. CULLEN LONDON - (NfiA) - It Prime Minister Harold MacmiDan looks tmheppy these days it is not because of unemployment, inflation, or nwrt year's election prospects. Britain has new been more prosperous, nor MaemUlaa more popular, No, what firoa the prime minister that harassed look Is the League of Empire Loyalists, a small band of "Empire First" cranks dedicated to miserable. making Macmillan the fttamt ta that takes the perseentloii as calmly MS lie does. For example, the prime minister was entertaining Dag Ham- marskjold at a banquet not long bearded loyalist underneath the ago, when a- sprang from table tad began shouting, "Down «rtth the United National" The startled. U.N. secretary general nearly choked, but Macmillan went rlfht on eating hit soup. WEBBER INSURANCE AGENCY W«TM H. la hart i •*••••! ••* _-„ HIUH SLDO. Garden Parly A few weeks later Empire Loyalists Invaded a garden party where Macmillan was speaking to Tory ladies. "Macmillan is ambassador of the dollar area," his tormentors shouted. Did the prime minister blow upt No. he waited while the ladies, brandishing their parasols, drove off the intruders; then went on with his speech. But the last straw for Mao mlllan's supporters came In October wbei loyalists gate crashed the CoMerratlre Party's annual conference .ta Blackpool and t r I • d .to drown hit closing speech with blasts from a bugle. This time the hecklers got as good as they gave, a couple of them being • taken out to the cloakroom and beaten up by attendants. But did this stop the league? It only made matters worse. 'Fascist beasts dripping with blood," the League screamed, and currently the Conservative Party is in hot water for having used "excessive violence, a< mounting to brutality" in expell ing the intruders. What ,For Certain? No one knows for certain what the League stands for, as its members seldom get beyond shmjt- ing "Don't scuttle the Em pirel" before being thrown out of meetings. A list of what they are again- Here"* wtsMnf yw a helWiy snsoa iftow with ill the. fMltfilnp ttathilptimikt PATON'S ELECTRIC 1015 i. Water St. Hi 3-5836 NOT A BIT SPORTING — A member of the League of Empire Loyalists is shown above, being asked to leave the Conservative Party Conference. st would Include the United Nations, .Archbishop Makarlos, NATO, American air bases In Britain, European Free Trade, Egypt's Nasser and Danish batter (this last because It Is "unfair" to New Zealand butter). In the view of many, the League, founded in 1953, has Fascist leanings. Its secretary, A*. K. Ches- erton, for example, is an ex-fol- ower of Sir Oswald Mosley, the Brisih Fascist, but he has managed to window-dress his national council with such respectable ancients as the Earl of Buchan, 78, and Field Marshal Lord Ironside, 80. But if the League has borrowed some' of its ideology from Hitler's brown shirts, its antics are typically British in their wackiness. Greet Red Leaders Take the Bulganin-Khrushchev visit to England in 1956. The League, as well as Sir Anthony Eden, Was on hand to greet the Soviet leaders when they arrived at Victoria Station; and as Sir Anthony stretched out his hand, a loyalist voice boomed over a microphone, "Eden is shaking- hands with murder." Eden looked i as though he had been stung byj a Moray eel. The League's greatest triumph I to date, however, was the hoax it pulled on the Archbishop of Canterbury at the Lambeth Conference in July. None of the 351 Anglican prelates assembled from all parts of the world as guests of the Archbishop found anything unusual j about the two bearded "bishops." . One In High Hat One' wore a high hat with a full-length, black cassock and imi- tation gold chain and cross, while the other wore a round-brimmed parson's hat. Both were Empire Loyalists in theatrical costumes At the appropriate moment, they commanded silence. Then the horrified assembly heard their plea, "The Empire Loyal- Isti ask yea te protest against the Invitation te the arch-ter* rorlst Mafcarlofls te visit this country." The London Dally Mirror has a suggestion for dealing with the loyalists. "In the old days rural England had a fine remedy for such boors," the Dally Mirror says editorially. "They were taken gently and firmly to the duck pond and thrown in." But newsmen opine that without the League British politics would be a lot duller. „ FIRE hat adjacent buildings would be saved, however. Was Making Check Mrs. Glassel, who has run the totel for the past year and the ad- (olning Koty Nook Cafe for three rears, said she was on the third floor shortly after 11 o'clock making a routine check of rooms. Someone asked to see her son Robert, 14, and she located him. Then, a third-floor roomer, Bill Van Fleet, said there was "a fire up there." Mrs. Glassel traced the Smoke to one of the rooms and sounded the alarm. She said she was sure no one remained on the third floor and directed her efforts to carrying out valuables. Firemen ran streams of water over the ceiling and It came trickling down into the hotel lobby and Kozy Nook Cafe. At 12:40 p.m. the large "Grand Hotel" sign crashed down, guided to some extent to firemen who were watching it. No one waa injured. At one stage of the fire, a swinging ladder clipped Chief Tobar on the shoulder, but he stayed on the job. , Turkey and Gifts for 9 Men at Lonely White Alice Post Whirlpool of Wheat Sucks 2 to Death SALINA, Kan.
