WBWCE8CAT, WOT. Farouk's a Poor Man If You See -it that Way t. f. CHAKALEB. CAIRO Of!—It d«pendi oa how you look at It. . OM war, you can take ex-King Farouk's word for It that he Is a "relatively poor man." He-has suffered a drastic cut In wages and standard of living. For Instance, at Capri he re- •trief«d himself to MOO-a-day lodg- - Ihgt. ; ' '• ' .The last year he occupied the Egyptian throne he had an Income of more, than |U»,0(M , a week- just from, the state and one reported holding of arable land. He, had four major palaces and a half-dozen others Mattered around the country. At Capri he spent *400 a day. In-Egypt, his minimum Income was »1S.OOO a day. The hidden atory of the fabulous wealth and Income of the playboy-monarch Is slewly being pieced together. El Saved Ahmed Khasaba, one of the two custodians of the ex- king's property, has disclosed that part of Farouk's : personal holdings included 12,000 acres of the most fertile soil in the Nile Valley; This did not Include what, is scattered around under concealed names and owned by various members of the royal household. Rich Land These- particular 12,000 acres have been estimated to be worth 117,230,000. The annual Income for Farouk from these lush acres was *2,152.000. __ • He got another £3,73T,000 : from the Egyptian state last year to run the royal household. Just from these two sources alone, • Farouk had an annua come of nearly six million dollars a year. He had other resources, of course, Indus ng his secret Turkey Mission To Visit Greece ISTANBUL.

When the whol« atoh' of tht vast Farouk economic atructure la pieced together there la virtually no chance (hat Farouk will ever get a penny out of Egypt. There has been a public clamor for confiscation of his properties Already hi* four major palaces have been put directly under th* control of the government,* All of which makes him a "relatively poor man." His income has been slashed from a minimum of 10 million dollars a year to whatever he can eke out of the Investments abroad, . That's roughly three million dollars a year.
