HOME EDITION 7c a CopyThis Paper counts of Four SectionsSection Ono No 101 coal Is British crown in I danger Royalty costs pretty pence By ALVIN J STEINKOPF LONDON ffi Queen Eliza beth II has started the llth year of her reign and many Britons are wondering out loud if the British throne is as secure as it appears The queen herself is personal ly above reproach Most comment on the 10th anniversary is that she has done very well in an era be coming more democratic and too technological to be impressed by pomp as in former times But there are complaints that the royal family costs too much Some publications demand that the family give up some of its feudal privileges There fs nof the slightest hint of any antimonarchist movement Some members of Parliament are engaged in soulsearching about the throne And the student mag azine Isis of Oxford University asked Is the royal family really necessary At 35 Queen Elizabeth is still a glamorous person The stately spectacle she makes when she rides in her coach to open Parlia ment still makes many Britons tingle Her personal popularity is great Hersubjects appJaud ber mother of ICAL FOR KENNE Photofax Mrs during their visit to a ma model Banner on accordions and harmonicas nedys arrived by plane at Osaka from Tokyo Feathers fly in stockpile probe as a hardworking three children Comment on the anniversary for the most part is temperate but frank The Daily Mail recalled that when King George VI died on Feb 6 1952 and his elder daugh ter was recalledfrom Africa on the first stage of a Jtour Briiairi expected that her accession would usher in another Elizabethan era of enterprise and adven ture Things havent been quite like that however the Mail ob served Since 1952 the monarchy has become mystical less remote and The Mail said Prince Philip the queens husband has been a vigorous worker a modern man to who has done something democratize the institution The royal family has been brought more into touch with or dinary life and that is no bad thing But it has been subjected to increasing criticism and that may be no bad thing either There was substance in the disapproval voice when Princess Margaret left her very young baby to go on holiday because this is the sort of thing ordinary people do not do j Looking back over these lOJ years no valid criticism can be leveled at the queen herself She has performed her duty to her people with quiet unchang ing devotion and undiminished grace She has taken a few steps down from a lofty pedestal with out losing anything of dignity or queeniiness A Labor party member of Par liament Richard March wrote in the magazine Time and Tide that The idea that an entire family should be maintained in almost feudal luxury by the nation is anachronistic The wealth of the royal fam iiy is the product not of their own property but represents the ac cumulated taxes that the nation has had to forego he added The questionis whether in the midtwentieth century the mon arch is able to give value for this money Another contributor to Time and Tide estimated the cost of main taining the royal family at two million pounds million a year There were doubts in many quarters as to whether Lord Snow don Princess Margarets hus band should have taken a job on the newspaper Sunday Times Many approved but some pointed out that the Sunday Times is a Conservative newspaper and that his association with it might in volve the royal family in politics There have been complaints that the queen gives inadequate support to cultural activities and that her tastes in art music and the theater are on the popular side WASHINGTON AP Demo crats hinted broadly Wednesday hey believe they have found the fuse for some political explosions against the Republicans in the forthcoming
