Couple Fleeces Aged Princess GENOA, Italy (AP) - Police held a German baron and his Italian woman friend today on charges of keeping an aged princess a virtual prisoner in her luxurious home for nearly 10 years and fleecing her of more than $80,000. The accused are Baron Wakle- mar von Hoyningen-Huene, 45. owner of a dental appliances firm in Genoa, and Luigiananelli, r>:i. Their victim was identified widowed Princess Carolina Ca.su- rello Borghese, 78. The baron was charged with violaling an Ilalian law against Flat Salary for Man With Round Wife By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (API-Should a man with a round wife 1 put her on a flat salary? The answer is a resounding yes except for one problem—what will you do with all the money she makes? Hide it in the corners? There are other problems, too. Often housewives sigh and say they would like to be on a pay-as- you-do basis. Often many a husband would also like to fine those same girls on a pay-if-you-don't. basis. Would it work out any better, for instance: You start by giving your wife a fair salary for running a neat house—coking, cleaning, ct cel- era, at 75 cents an hour, four ours a day. That would be S3 a day or S21 a week. Then, naturally, there would be a surcharge for the time she spent listening to her lord and master brag about his troubles in bringing home her and his bacon. At the same rate of 75 cents an hour, it might break down to this: Three hours a day listening to husband praise himself seven days expenditure, one yawn. Price of your time: 12 cents. Debit: Time spent explaining lo her why you'd rather spend the evening at home than squire her on the town: Two hours a night, .14 hours weekly. Total waste of breath, figuring any attempt at wife-explaining at $5 an hour, $70.

"I think what we can accomplish," he said, ."is frying to >mg home to the public (hat. we are willing lo pay a price Tor our convictions." The charge of threatening lo disturb the peace, while not directly a racial matter, Raines said, "was related lo racial discrimination—and it's on that that we are standing, nol on our right lo make a disturbance." During their brief freewTm Printing Contracts! Are Completed LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Secretary of State Nancy Hall said today that G(i controversial printing contracts had been decided on, but thai she won't announce names until contracls are formally signed. Thai probably won't' be-until nexl week. Mrs. Hall has the signature of Gov. Orval E. Faubus, but needs those of State Auditor Jimmie Jones and Treasurer • J.' Vance Clayton. Jones is out of town and Clayton is in a hospital. Some printers complained about the procedure used In the printing bids and Mrs. Hall set up a three-man commillee lo study bids and make contract awards. Wednesday the four wont lo the home of C. II. Jones, publisher of the Southern Mediator Journal, a weekly Negro newspaper, and later went lo their attorney's office. It was from Williams' office that they telephoned Judge Glover to say they had changed their minds about leaving. Raines said they "misunll-r- stood" thc terms of the judicial agreement and said if it meant they had to give up their tour instead of merely leaving Arkansas then "it is very likely we will go back to jail." Glover confirmed that the order meant exactly what il said — "leave lhc slate of Arkansas and proceed to their respective homes." As thc four wailed to checked hack into city jail. Cox remarked to a newsman: "This is not a struggle between black and white. H's a struggle between justice and injustice." An officer interrupted thc conversation to give Cox some in- struclions, calling him "boy." "See what 1 mean." Cox said lo thc newsman. "Injustice. A grown man, 30 years old—'bo.!/ 1 ."
