when the first panied the hijacked liner into passengers would come ashore port from the high seas The harbor area was a scene A tiger held by the tail Prince on hot seat By ROBERT MUSEL LONDON UPI Prince Philipnow knows how it feels to be on the other end of a hunt Britains animal lovers are after his hide The handsome husband of Queen Elizabeth shot a tiger during the present royal visit to India because he likes hunt ing and because his Indian hosts wanted him to bag a beast unique to their land There was nothing very re markable about the affair ex cept perhaps the size of the tiger Its official measure ments grew by a foot in length during the night after the Prince shot it BUT PROTESTS ranging from the front page of news Capt Henrique Galvao the I of great confusion with crowds passengers Wednesday a n d rebel commander made his j milling through the area demon crowds rushed to the docks tojmove to free the passengers aftstrating for Galvao who seized watch er a night of uncertainty and the ship in an effort to over confusion over his reception in throw the government of Portu Brazilian waters Premier Antonio de Oli Galvao had shied away fromjveiro Salazar Counter demon entering port without ironclad strations started immediately guarantees against losing hisj Though President Quadros of million prize which he calls a liberated part of Portu guese national territory HIS CONCERN was for formal assurances from Brazils new president Janio Quadros that the revolutionists could keep the ship to carry on their fight against the regime of Portugals Premier Antonio Salazar The Santa Maria was in front of Dock 4 by early afternoon The docking process was ex pected to take some time and papers to the letters to the editors columns have been mounting ever since and it appears many britons who say they would like to send the Prince to the same taxidermist Scott County concerned by teen marriages DAVENPORT new state law to close the Iowa borders to young couples in trouble coming in this state to get mar ried has been proposed by Scott County Clerk Elmer Jens Too many such couples have been coming in from Wisconsin Illinois and Indiana Jens said He would raise the legal mar rying age in Iowa from 14 to 16 for girls and 16 to 18 for boys Girls under 16 now can get mar ried by parental consent Jens said it is not unusual for as many as 10 outofstate couples to come to his office for marriage licenses on the week ends fered political asylum to the Galvao rebels the fate of the million ship remained in doubt Portugal demands that Brazil seize it and return it to its owners Galvao has said he would never give it back Quadros message was inter preted in some sections as rec ognition of a state of belliger ency between the Galvao group and the Portuguese government a far lesser charge than those of piracy and murder made earlier by Portugal INTERNATIONAL law would permit a belligerent vessel to spend 24 hours in port to load supplies while those aboard wanting asylum could get it But Quadros was still silent on whether he would seize the ship Accompanying the Santa Maria into the harbor was the destroyer Gearing with Rear Adm Allen Smith Jr command er of the Caribbean Sea Fron tier aboard The entry was a personal tri umph for the 6foot 200pound admiral whose ships and planes had tracked down the Santa Maria and placed it in a pocket of custody SMITH WENT aboard the lux ury liner Tuesday and negotiat ed with Galvao for the release of the passengers He was crest fallen when he returned report ing the situation still was up in the air But late Tuesday Smith re who is skinning his tiger He also was attacked from the pulpit The Rev Reginald Gaul of the Church of England which Queen Elizabeth heads said in his sermon that the shooting of the tiger was ac companied by unspeakable cruelty Even the Indians seem to be surprised by the intensity of the British protests since the only complaints in their own land of nonviolence have come from the Ahimsak party whose members oppose any harm to animals But the attacks here are un derstandable to those who un derstand the British THEY COME not only from genuine animal lovers but from those who always join in criti cism of the royal family since it is the cheapest and safest He suggested that Iowa girls a message from Galvao 16 be permitted to marry in cases of pregnancy but only with parental consent and with a doctors certificate Malvern banks loss MALVERN shortage in the Malvern Trust Saving Bank which developed with the suicide of a bank official has been estimated at about The figure was one given Tues day night by E W Burdic president of the bank The shortage was discovered in the books of John E Willard vice president and cashier who was found dead athome Mon day with a bullet wound which officials said was selfinflicted Burdic said the bank was pro way to get publicity The by a 5120000 employe fi of Windsor never answers back which makes it a sitting duck for anyone who wants to see his name in print And Prince Philip can reflect sadly that if he held the same eminence in practically any other country in the world his tiger shoot would have been ignored or merely noted with interest President Gamal Abdel Nas ser of the United Arab Re public and President Tito of Yugoslavia both went on similar hunts without arousing any furore in their homelands Most other heads of state also are hunters Former president Dwight D Eisenhower for example used to shoot quail without rocking the foundations of government A NUMBER OF rich Britons go on hunts every year under the sponsorship of the Mahara jah of Cooch Behar and get much bigger skins than the mediumsized rug Prince Philip acquired without a murmur from the animal lovers Fifty years ago on the last royal visit to India King George V shot not one but 21 tigers and used 645 elephants to turn them into his guns The yeoman of imperial Britain cheered the prowess of their
