PAGE TWO BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 80, 19B5 Charming Sir Anthony 111; Resignation Put Eden on Political Map By TOM A. CULLEN NEA Special Correspondent LONDON — (NEA) — Americans who suspect Sir Anthony Eden exhibits a more than passing interest in American real estate every time he pays a visit to the States are on the right track. The Stnte of Maryland at one time practically belonged to the Eden family, who used it as a sort of private game preserve. One of Anthony Eden's direct ancestors was governor of Maryland at the time of the American War of Independence, and lies buried at Annapolis today. Another-early Eden pirated American ships off the coast of South Carolina. Anthony Eden's brother. Sir Timothy Eden, still styles himself as the Baronet of Maryland, a title which is confirmed in the 1954 edition of Burke's Peerage, which r lists him as the sixth in line. It was the suspicion that Anthony Eden was about to cop the Colosseum in Rome that led to the most famous political feud of modern times: -Eden, the Sling-Shot Kid, versus Goliath Mussolini. Some say that Eden's dislike for Mussolini dated from the time he skidded on a rug in front of II Duce's desk. In another version, Mussolini, in one of his more operatic moods, splashed the contents of an ink-pot over one of Eden's favorite suits. However the feud started, Eden pulled no punches. It was Eden who got sanctions applied against Mussolini during the Italo-Ethiopian war. It was Eden who tried to stop Italian intervention in Spain. And he did resign from the British cabinet when he discovered that his own prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, was making deals with the Italians behind his back. Resigning from the Chamberlain government was the smartest thing Eden ever did, next to being born handsome and with money in the family. It was a bitter cold day in February, 1938, when Eden learned the news of Chamberlain's sellout. Walking back from No. 10 Downing Street, a shocked Eden locked himself into his office, knocked back a glass of whiskey and began to dictate the letter of resignation which put him on the map politically. Now that he was out, what would Eden do? Would he upset the government? Would he stump the country against the appeasers? An anxious nation awaited his next move, which was to go off to play tennis in the South of France. Eden's failure to press the attack against Chamberlain is often cited as an example of his inability to get tough. It foreshadowed a weak- kneed attitude toward the Communist cold war, some say. However, 18 months later Chamberlain was out, and Churchill was in as prime minister, with Eden as his foreign secretary.

EDEN: In the darkest hours of the war, a death blow foundered their marriage. rarely seen by the public. For some ears Eden and his wife had been estranged. Beatrice Eden, who loved to go dancing at Giro's, made no bones of her dislike of politics. Looking back on it years-later she could say. "I was never so bored." But now, during the darkest hours of the war, their marriage was to receive the blow form which it never recovered. It came in a message from the War Ministry that their son, Simon Eden, was missing in action with the Royal Air Force over Burma. Anthony Eden was scheduled to do an important broadcast a few minutes after receiving the message. He went through with it, departing from the script to console those families who had lost someone in action. Never once did his voice break. 1 As for Beatrice Eden, she fled to America and never returned. In 1950 Eden got his divorce on grounds .of desertion. They had been married 27 years.

Plymouth's door openings are higher and wider, too, permitting the easiest possible entry and exit. What's more, Plymouth's new trunk is mammoth—with far greater capacity than the ''other 2." SMOOTHER BIG-CAR RIDE Only a truly big car like Plymouth can give you the luxury of a big-car ride. Plymouth's longer and stronger frame, wider rear springs and Onflow shock absorbers provide the smoothest ride in the lowest-price field.
