MONTE CARLO BANK NEVER HAS BEEN BROKEN NEW YORK (INS^-Ever hear of the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo? Or the story that the plush casino's gaming fables feed, clothe and keep alive the 25,000 residents of the tiny principality of Monaco? A couple of Europe's most glittering modern myths are due for explaining this week as Americans come face-to-face for the first time with JWonaco's ruling 32-year-oki Prince Rainier III. When his serene highness steps off the liner United States in New York Friday for his first U. S. visit, Americans will see a serious non-gaml>ling young man — dark and handsome—whf) governs one of the smallest independent states in the world and one of the few without any debts. Monaco's woll-intormcd American spokesman, consul genernl Marcel A. Palmaro, punctures a fabulous tale by reporting that nobody—but nobody—ever has broken the Monte Carlo bank. "It's a good story," Palmaro admits. "But the truth is that nobody has ever been able to break more than one of the casino's 40 gambling tables—at least, not at one time. Then it was only a matter of bringing in more chips, and play was resumed." • • • The gambling casino ranks as one of the major tourist attractions in the little principality which rovers less than a square mile along the southern coast of France. But this year it will pay the government only .$10,000 in taxes and royalties out of gross receipts of about $3,000,000—only a fraction of the annual Las Vegas "take." The biggest state income items ar customs reimbursements from Prance ($1,200,000>, the tobacco monopoly ($600,000 to $700,000), H- quoi taxes (.$3,50,) and the worldwide mail order business in famous Monaco postage stamps (.$2,5,000 to S500,000). Monaco has no income taxes, either personal or corporate, and has become an operating mecca for such wily international busines.s- men as shipoin^JTrron Aristotle Ona.?sis, who now owns—among his vast holdings —a 35 percent interest In the Monte Carlo casino. • • • With state expenditures now running about $5,000,000 a year, about $1,000,000 below revenues, Prince Rainier finds himself with a MAHALA LAUNDRY tnd DRY CLEANING (n bv 10:00, Out bv 5:00 YOUB LUX LAUNDHY healthy treasury, no debts and prosperity that has been called 'sensational." Prince Rainier, the 30th desccnd- a..t of a dynasty dating from 1070, will travel the U.S. without the official receptions, pomp and fuss Usually reserved for a visiting ruler. It will be strictly a private visit. The Prince will bring with him only his secretary, one aide and his Vatican • appointed American chaplain, the Rev. Father Francis Tucker of Wilmington, Del. After a brief physical checkup nt Baltimore's Johns Hopkins hos pita', the prince will visit Califor nia, Texas, Florida, the middle west, Chicago and Detroit. Ho is particularly interested to -see Wasliinglon state s Mt. Rainier, which he calls his 'namesake," and a place called 'Camp ol Prince Albert of Monaco" near Cody, Wyo. It was here that his gre.nt - grandfather Prince Albert '.vcnf hunting with the late William (Buffalo Bill) Cody in 1898. • • • The eligible prince's uninarriedl status has been the subject of increasing discussion and speculation among his people. According to the 1918 treaty with France, the principality will become a stale and I protectorate of France if the line f direct heirs to the throne of -lonaco is ever broken. But Rainier, at 32, is still con- ndered young, and there is also it eater freedom to his position Jian that of some rulers. He can marry a commoner, and his ruling heir can be either male or female. During the past six year.s, since he became the reigning prince, th« ffossip columns have linked him with a half-dozen attractive blondes and brunettes, Including Holl.v- wood's Grace Kelly and Italy's Gina Loilobrigida. The prince himself calls them "swell girls," but that's as far as the newspaper romances have progressed. Say Trio Robbed' School Buildings DAY'^ON, Dec. 16 (INS) — Montgomery-co officials said today thf y have broken up a three- man burglary ring which robbed 33 .school buildings In 13 counties within recent weeks. The men, who capped off their s . by carting away a safe containing $400 from . a Clay-tp school in Scioto-co, were identified as Lawrence and Bernard Meyers, 22 and 20 respectively. They also implicated a Scioto- co youth in the thefts. GAINS WEATHER POST CINCINNATI, Dec. 16 (UP)— A. W. Walstrom, Cincinnati weatherman since 1950, was informed today of his promotion to director of the U. S. Weather Bureau regional office in Kansas City.
