Thus the one time "madcap orincc," who set an example for the Duke of Y/indsor by renouncing his right to the throne for love, who had stayed faithfully with the woman for whom he 'did so despite persistent, angry efforts to separate them, emerged as the newest of Europe's strong men. Peasants, townspeople and politicians alike, as they gathered in groups this morning to discuss the events of the night, paid tribute to the king. They saw him as having solved by a bold stroke a grave governmental crisis; many credited him with engineering the climatic events of the crisis which culminated in his own assumption of supreme power. Octavian Goga's anti-Jewish cabinet met late yesterday and decided lo resign. Ministers remained in session while Goga went to the royal palace to submit his resignation.
