Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa g Ihf Ci'ilar Kapiels Gazelle: Man., Jan. 7, 1914 Society for Women Features Handicapped Couple Wed Telephoto Lady Jane Wellesley, 22-year-old daughter of the Duke ol Wellington, is shown as she drives oft from her Fulham, London, home recently to the Old Bond street art deal- er's where she works. Lady Jane celebrated the New Year with Prince Charles at Sand- ringham, Queen Elizabeth's country estate. Lady Jone is Determined 'Friend' of Prince Charles By Julie Flint LONDON (AP) Lady Jane Wellesley, only daughter of the eighth Duke of Welling- ton, is small and dark with long hair, a Mona Lisa face and mind of her own. She is interested in art, antiques and politics, not the sporty" pur- suits popular with much of her set and the British royal family. Friends say she is a typical Wellington, "stubborn, proud, determied. Snappy at times, but sociable." She is also linked roman- tically with Prince Charles, heir to the British throne and, despite denials from both families, is widely expected by Britons on all social levels to become his bride. New Year Lady Jane celebrated the New Year with the 25-year-old prince at.Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth's country estate. Af- terwards the prince, serving in the Royal navy, flew to Sin- gapore for a three-month stay there. This has been interpret- ed as a testing period for the couple. Lady Jane told newsmen she had a "lovely time" at Sandrlngham. A worker on the royal estate was quoted as saying: "For a couple who are supposed to be just good friends, they seem to squeeze hands and kiss an awful lot." The Wellingtons, whose- fam- ily name is Wellesley, are not of royal blood. However, they rank among, the nation's most famous aristocrats, thanks to the first duke, the victor of Waterloo. Royal Circles Unlike Mark Phillips, the cavalry commoner who mar- ried Charles' sister Princess Anne, the 22-year-old Lady Jane has moved in royal cir- cles all her life. Her parents are intimates of the queen and her husband, Prince Philip. Prince Charles was a childhood friend, al- most the boy-next-door. Buckingham palace gardens are only a crown's throw from the Duke of Wellington's elegant Piccadilly town house. Lady Jane, shoulder-high to her 6-foot-l boy friend at just 5-foot-2, recently moved from her parents' stately home in a small terraced house in Ful- ham, an unassuming London district popular with the young. She shares a white- painted house with several girls. She started out two years ago as general help to a pub- lic relations firm, working her way up to her current job as personal assistant to an exclu- sive Bond street art dealer. Ambition Jo Write Her early ambition was to become a political writer. Her boss in the public rela- tions firm, Billy Hamilton, described her this way: "She has a tremendous sense of humor without being flippant. She's a serious-mind- ed girl but serious and in- telligent without being a bluestocking." Her first major solo assign- ment with the firm was to publicize a charity perform- ance of the movie "Waterloo" in New York. Edd Steiger played Napoleon, and Chris- topher Plummer played her ancestor, the first duke. Hamilton said: "She did an excellent job. Afterwards, I got letters saying how well she had done. She had to meet lots of important people, and at the time she was only 20." The Wellingtons are among Britain's biggest landowners. Their mansion on Hyde Park Corner used to be known as "No. 1, London." The gift of a grateful nation to the first duke, it was handed back to the nation in 1947 as a muse- um, with a provision that the Wellingtons should keep a free apartment there. Lady Jane's mother is the only daughter of the late Maj. Gen. D. F. McConnel, Bri- tain's World war If command- er on Palestine and Transjor- dan. The family recently sold a 525-acre estate in Devonshire to help ease the burden of death duties on the will of the seventh duke. They remain, according to friends, well up the millionaire league.

Iowa (AP) Two young residents of the Indian Hilts nursing home in Council Bluffs were married Saturday, knowing their life together may be short. Everett Dyke, 18, has incur- a b I e muscular dystrophy. Nineteen y e a r old Beverly Rath is paralyzed on the right side as tile result of a car-train accident at Gibbon, Neb., in 1969. Young Dyke is a native of Council Bliiffs. Miss Rath is from Lexington, Neb. The Rev. James Nickel per- formed the 2 o'clock ceremo- ny at Valley View Baptist church. The romance began at the nursing home in December of 1972. Limited Time Said the Rev. Mr. Nickel: "They feel that though they are handicapped, they want to be together even if it may be for a limited time." Everett had been at the home several months when Miss Rath arrived. He said "When I first saw her I decided she just wasn't my type." Bev she prefers that first name said she made the first proposal, but it was Everett who made the final decision two months ago. As she put it: "I told him once I had always thought it would be so neat to meet someone like him and fall -in love and get married." Everett added: "Yeah, she chased me for about two months." Within the courtship, they said, God has played a parL "We both know Coil and our lives arc so beautiful Bev said. has really helped said Everett. The Rev. Mr. Nickel said .Miss Rath's relationship with Everett brought him into the church. The clergyman bap- tized him several months ago. Determination The churchman said it was only through Bcv's determi- nation and inner strength that she regained the ability to speak after physicians had said she might not. It was determined when Everett was 8 years old that he had muscular dystrophy, a disease characterized by dete- riorating of muscles. He had lost the use of his legs by the age of 11. Everett's 19-year-old brother Joseph, also a muscular dys- trophy victim, served as best man. Sharon Hannah, a youth group member, was maid of honor. Attending was the groom's mother, Mrs. Leta Dyke of Omaha, and the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Rath of Lexington. A short honeymoon is planned at a private residence in Couricil Bluffs, after which the couple will be in a room together at the nursing home.

I am a widower jwlio lias been alone for twelve !years, during which time I have been in the company of ionic- lovely eligible women, but I i never have wanted to marry 1 until 1 met My Pair Lady. She iis 65, and has been a widow fur 1 ten years. We are both in reasonably good health, mid we would like to spend the refit of our lives together, making each other happy. All our children are married. Some approve of our plans to marry. Some do not. I own my own home and have a little money. In view of the mixed feelings of our children, should we sneak off and get married by a preacher with just a few friends as witnesses? Or should we have a small church wedding, invite all the children, and let those who want lo, come, and those who don't, stay YOUNG AT HEART DEAR YOUNG: Why sneak? Do whatever pleases you and your Fair Lady. The last tiling you should worry about is what your children think. DEAR ARBY: A husband complained because his wife came to bed every night with her hair wrapped in toilet paper and she covered the whole thing with a ridiculous-looking night- cap. Well, so do I! But I have no reason to go to bed looking pretty. My husband has such a pot gut I couldn't get within a foot of him if I wanted to, which I certainly do not. You see he rarely bathes and he always comes to bed with a sour beer breath. A few years back I found someone who -could have made my life complete but I gave him up hoping my marriage could be saved. What a fool I was. In the meantime, I keep my hair looking nice and iM ever get another chance I won't pass it up.
