Mrs. Wijkmark was a newspaperwoman and editor of a Stockholm magazine. She met the prince six years ago at a party in honor of his ; birthday. j Carl Johan has a job which calls ;for setting up a New York office for the Anglo-Nordic Trading company, a Scancianavian firm. For a man renouncing claim to the Swed- £sh throne, he was not the least per| turbed when lie met Mrs. Wijkmark at the dock and presented her with two boxes of violets ns a Valentine gift, , "After all. I am only fourth in line for the throne." he said. Both emphasized that renunciation of the prince's relay claims did not mean exile or that the king frowned on tile wedding. "It is inerly a question of Swedish law," he said. "The law says that a person of the royal family may not marry a Swedish subject. If my fiancee were a so-called commoner of any other nationality, I could marry her and retain succes- jsion with consent of the king and parliament."

Ickes declared tonight President Trumin had contradicted himself in news conference references to the Edwin W. Pauley nomination and one of the President's statements "is not true." PARES TO INTER DISPUTE He added that "I would dare to dispute the integrity of the President on any occasion that my country's welfare demanded it." Striking back at Mr. Truman's .•tatoment yesterday that the former . •'certnry of interior would not dare to question .'iis integrity, Ickes said 'ho Prcf.iilent's "own record, made in hi; last; two press conferences, o'.stitutpd clear proof of the weight ! "!.n' w°uld be given to his utterances." 'RE KIND TO HIM' "A w^ok ng-J Thursday." Ickes -aid in a statement, "after I had testified (before the senate naval ommittce on Pauley's nomination for undersecretary of the navy), he (old his press conference that I had not consulted him before my ap- prarvi.f- with respect to Pauley. "Friday," the statement continued, "he P. knowledged under questioning that he had lold me 'to be kind to him' (Pauley). There is no way these two statements can be reconciled. One of them is not true." Ickes had suggested when he resigned from the cabinet this week tliat an investigation ought to be made by the attorney ceenral's office of Pauley's statement, under oath before the committee, that" he had not taken part in attempts to Vnflucnce government officials to abandon efforts to establish federal title to off-shore ocean oil lands. NECESSITY FOIl JUSTICE "I note," Ickes said, "that the President reels there is no necessity fo°r the justice department to investigate to ascertain whether Mr. Pauley perjured himself, on the grounds that there is no need to call in the justice department to ascertain the truth in a political argument. "This, to my mind, constitutes an open incitement to perjury. XXX" Ickes said that by this criterion, former secretary of interior Albert B. Fall, who was involved in the Teapot Dome oil scandal, and others "would never have suffered any :urb on their activities." The former cabinet member also said he did not believe, as President Truman said at yesterday's news conference, that President Roosevelt had intended to appoint Pauley They're 'Good Scouts' for the navy undersecretaryship.

Looking on is .Eagle Scout William Small, second U. S, Scout to win the honor, President Roosevelt did not appoint Pauley to the np,vy department." He had not* talked with the late President, [ekes said, nbout the "improper proposal" lie contended Pauley had made to him on Sept. 4, 1944. At that time, I:kes said Pauley. then democratic national committcf. 1 treasurer, had suggested that $300,000 in campaign funds could bo raised i'rom mtctcsicd oil mm if the (.jovernment would not push its clam for title to Hie titk 1 - liinds area. "Certainly," the former cabinet member said, "I would have gone to President Roosevelt with my objections to Mr. Pauley if there had been any clangar of his making the mistake that President Truman persists in. I do not believe that President Roosetelt would have appointed Mr. Pauley.'" likes declared Lhat "the one groat regret" he has in the present controversy "is what I regard as the President's lack of adherence to the strict truth." PRESIDENT'S MEMORY Perhaps, Ickes si^gested, the President's memory "is at fault even about the recent incidents," adding that "I want to be as charitable as I can." Alluding to Mr. . Truman's news inference statement yesterday that Ickes would not dare to rellect on the President's 'Integrity, the former cabinet member said: ".After nil, the President of the United States is neither an absolute monarch nor a descendent of a putative sun goddess." "The President ought to be the first to insist that the civil rights oi tlie humblest citizen are safe in his hands," Ickes declared. "He ought not to make accusations with! cut submitting himself to the right i cross-examination. "He should not pass judgment in; volving another's integrity with- ut considering all of the evidence. The White House offers no immunity not vouchsafed to ordinary men. Above all other.-';, the President , :.h"iuld .speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. '•Particularly," Ickes statement '.V:? '.I, "ho should not throw hi ••'sight of his high office in fa- j vor 01 any man merely because of i political favars already rendered or expected." Ickes resignation 'this week came as a result of the; President's statement at a .lews conference that the then cabinet-member might easily have been mistaken about what Pauley told.him at the conference where campaign contributions were discussed.
