Prince Aly Khan, Rita's ex-husband and father of 4-year-old Yas- rnin, agreed to settle this sum on the child and signed the necessary papers Tuesday before flying off to London. The glamorous movie aftrcss, notvcver, delayed signing her part of the agreement, which would put the settlement into effect, until she had more time to study it. The Moslem prince, son of the fabulously wealthy Aga Khan, tuld reporters the agreement gives him custody of Hi tin Yasmin for part ot each year, Me once demanded full custody of the child, first princess born in the Aga Khan's family in 200 years. The pact, whicli ends 15 months of wrangling between Rita and Aly, wits announced by her attorney, Hartley Crum, He gave no details. Aly's lawyer, Charles Torem, however, told newsmen that reports of a $108,000-a-year figure were fairly close. The prince its to pay about $100.000 a year for 14 years to a fund set up for Yns- min. In addition he is to pay about $8.000 a year for her support. Rita, who divorced Aly on Jan. 26, 1953, and eight months Utler married crooner Dick Haymes, had in the past feared that once Yasmin left this country to visit her father, the mother might not bo able to get the child back. Crum said arrangements have been made to avoid this situation but did not elaborate.
