Associated Press and Upited Press International Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 29 1960 To a Copy Paper Consists of Four Oaa No 224 Windstorm hits Ottumwa area King for Spanish EDITORS NOTE Terrorist bombings early this week in three major Spanish cities raises the question of Spains political future The following report explains Generalissimo Francos attitude toward the monarchy By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Spain that monarchy without a monarch is emitting another series of hints or rumors that Generalissimo Francisco Franco is about to fulfill an old pledge and restore to the kingdom a king Recent events lend some credence to the intimations but it should be noted at the start that informed sources have been putting out these signals like beeping radios for the past 13 years with little tangible re sult Inasmuch as Spain has be come virtually a client or ward of the United States the matter of succession is attracting a good deal of attention here What gave rise to the series of false pregnancies was Fran cos Law of Succession promul gated in 1947 which provides for eventual reestablishment of the monarchy THE FUTURE king is to be chosen by Franco or in the event of his prior death or in capacity by a Council of the Realm subject to a twothirds of approval by the Cortes or parliament The law stipulates that the king must be a Spaniard of royal blood Roman Catholic more than 30 years old who will swear to uphold the basic laws established by the Franco re gime meaning the principles of the National Movement or Falange Spains only legal po litical party The logical candidates are the Pretender Don Juan de Bour bon count of Barcelona the third son of Alfonso XIII and Don Juans son Prince Juan Carlos Alfonsos eldest son was killed in an automobile crash in the United States in 1939 The second son Don Jaime of Se govia has renounced his royal rights on medical grounds FATHER AND son are sup posed to share prodemocratic antitotalitarian attitudes Don Juan wants a monarchy like that of Great Britain Living in selfimposed exile in Portugal the 47yearold Pretender has often said that he will not ac cept the throne on the point of Francos sword The son by agreement be tween Franco and Don Juan has been schooled in Spain In De cember he completed four years at the army navy and air force academies and became the only cadet since the monarchy fell in 1931 to be commissioned a lieu tenant in all three services This could be significant The armed forces have always helped rule Spain Franco and Don Juan on March 29 met at an estate in western Spain and agreed on further schooling of the 22year Dld Prince Juan Carlos He is to study under tutors in the at mosphcre of his own country in the language of the Franco Don Juan communique He will be provided a special residence and will be accorded royal hon ors HIS PERSONAL chaplain will be the Rev Federico Suarez Vcrdaguer dean of the history faculty of a private university maintained by the Opus Dei the influential Catholic secular or ganization Franco repeatedly has con ceded that Don Juan can lay claim to all the rights of inher itance King Alfonso had desig nated Don Juan as successor be fore his death in Rome in 1941 But Franco insists that all the conditions and stipulations of I he Law of Succession be filled Meantime
