"he commcn man used to believe he bore most of the world's woes, but It. turns out kings have their troubles, too. In the last century people worried because there were too many kings on thrones— and not enough In poker hands. Unemployment Is Plague Today unemployment is the plague of monarchs. In olden times kings were bounced off their thrones because (1) they went mad, civilized lands the tribal counc! ins forgiven the young chief for marrying a white foreigner with no bine blood In her veins. They wan him back. But Britain's Labor covernment which relinquished India, th brightest Jewel 'In the Imperia crown, says, "No. Seretse. you sta In England and be ft nice ex-chief There are dark whispers as to why Tlu;re are hints that South Afrl ca wants to take over Bechuana land, and that a chief with an ox ford accent might stand In the way Ball Player's Salary . So far the besl offer the Labo government has made to Scretse (2) they cut off too many heads, (3) a stronger relative wanted the Job, (4) they lost a war, or (5) folks Just got tired of paying them too much In taxes. Nosv, however, kings seem to lose their ermine and sceptor over love — love, that word. 'rospector Dies When Tent Burns. H. .ARRISON, Ark,, March 14. Ml —Accidental burns have caused the oath of James Whltaker, a 78- enr-old mineral prospector, wlio pent most of his time alone in •ie woods'.

They have insisted on e.xcrcts- I month -lub to consider. ing trie right that princes have al-' ways had In fairy tales, and commoners have had In real life: The right to go with the pal they like. Kings Prefer Women King Carol, for Instance, said, "To heck with Romania—,1'H take Madame Lupescu." Before he had even sat on the throne of England long enough lo get it warm. Edward VIII gave it up for Mrs. Simpson, "the I love." And widower King 1 felt he couldn't help It if Seiglum was overrun by tnvatlers and went right ahead and married a commoner. Now Leopold has won a referendum showing a majority ol Eel gium's voters want him returned to his home country and throne. One thing you have to say about these monarchs: They have all stuck by the girl of their choice. And all the world loves a steadfast lover, crowned or crownless. Certainly an wives do.
