t 1 Page Six HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, December 11,1946 Romance of British Princess and Greek Prince Like Burst of Sunshine in Storm Cloud Romance is so obscured in these days of strife that the love affair reported to be developing rapidly between England's charming Princess Elizabeth and handsome yonng Prince Philip of Greece is like a burst o£ sunshine through storm-clouds. Admittedly there arc international questions of far greater importance than whether Elizabeth and Philip love each other. Still, it's worthy of note that romance is one of the fine things of life which our very mtschieveous world hasn't been able to stifle. One could extend that thought to brotherly love pnd peace on earth —but we didn't start out to present a homily, so let's get back to our muttons, which is the Briton's way of calling for a return to the subject of discussion. There has been no announcement of an engagement. On the contrary Buckingham palace stands oat on its announcement of last September that "Princess Eliazbeth is not engaged." However, the palace hasn't said she wouldn't become engaged or wasn't in live, and moreover there has been a "mysteriously" inspired flood of favorable publicity for the prince running in the British press the past few days. Also, it is said that Philip has applied for British naturalization, which would oe a requisite to marriage with the .heiress to the world's greatest throne. The way European royal families intermarry it isn't surprising to learn that Prince Philip is third cousin to Princess Elizabeth. He is n nephew of the distinguished Admiral Lord Mquntbatten and has been in the British navy since he was nineteen (he is now twenty- five). He and the twenty year old princess have been seeing much of each other and have appeared in public together, and England is prepared to hear in due course that he is to marry his princess and thus in time become prince consort. A prince consort's chief distinction is that he is husband of the queen. She is the sovereign and he has no privileges of monarchy. The last prince consort of England was Prince Albert, husband of the famous Queen Victoria. Just before their marriage the British government gave him precedence next to the queen, but he had nq distinctive title and such privileges as Diplomats Hope Molotov Wiii Reverse Stand By JOHN N.

This requested highway construction budget was approved as submitted by the committee yesterday. The budget group, however, deferred action on the remainder of the Highway department's proposed budget. The current highway construction appropriation is only $3,700,000.

Asahi said the repatriates reported: Russian communication began with farm lands allotted lo Russian immigrants irom Siberia and northern Sakhalin. The Japanese were told to transfer ownership of their lands to the Russians. Cooperative farming is maintained on a large scale. The Russians declared complete nationalization- of farm lands immediately after the occupation in August, 1945. A civil administration ordered the registration of all experienced .farmers. Harvests were delivered to a farm board which paid the farmers in wages. Free movement of farmers was strictly prohibited. AU farms arc under supervision a three-pronged control. - o -- of County Gets $33780 of School Fund Little Rock, Dec. 11 —(in— The State Board of Education iias apportioned $2,2I5,!)40 in common school money to county school systems, granted loans to 11 districts and approved ten commercial bond issues tor nchoul improvements or debt retirement.

STRANGERS IN TOWN Galesburfi, 111., Dec. 11 — (IP)— Three men — apparently strangers in town — stole a car in Galesburg and later crashed it agai si a tree. They stole it from the Iront of the home of Policeman Henry Bocox. They cracked it up at the home of Policeman C. K. Berliaux. Both policemen were in the squad car which recovered the automobile.

Lawyers See Split Court on Coal Issue Washington, Dec. 10 — (UP) — Lawyers today arc predicting a divided supreme court when the justices render their vcrdicl on vhe contempt sentences passed .-igains John L. Lewis and the United Mine Workers of America. The case wil' be argued Jan. 14. Some good lawyers, including Sen. Burton K. Wheeler, D., Mont, believed the court may find foi Lewis. Others, including Donald R Richbcrg, are confident the in .junction and contempt sentence will be sustained. Richberg's opin ion is significant because he wn one of several men who hclpci draft the Norris-LaGuardia anli-in junction bill which was enacted i 1932. Lewis contends that act pro tcctcd him against the injunctio which broke his strike. In its brief lo the supreme conn the government insisted the ant injunction act did not extend to th federal government. The brief cite congressional discussion, when th act was pending and the stale-1 menls of its sponsors that the limitations raised against granting of injunctions in labor disputes would not extend to 'ihe government. If the court desires further first hand testimony on the intent of the Norris-LaGuardia act, il can be had irom Associate Justice Felix Frankfurter. He was associated with Richbcrg in drafting ihe act as il finally was passed and knows what it was intended to cover. The Justice Department brief and the original judgment of the districl court presided over by Judge T. Alan Goldsborough cite various issues to be considered by the supreme court. Lewis' lawyers contend Goldsborough's court lacked jurisdiction to issue the temporary strike restraining order. It was for ignoring the order that Lewis and his union were found guilty of civil and criminal contempt. The government contends that even though Lewis may believe Goldsborough had no authority to issue the injunction, yet the union and its president should have obeyed pending final clelerminalion ol! that question.
