A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIRES MASON TUESDAY MAY THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 196 Wanted by Society Washington Hopes Duke Wally Will Go There By CHARLES STEWART Balti more and Wash ington are be ginning to lose patience with Prime Minister Stanley Bald win of England Baltimore es pecially b e lieves that it has a distinct pro prietary inter

IMYS MM IS Connerv and Black Favor TO DOUBLE DUES BURKE ASSERTS LAST PROP HAS BEEN REMOVED Social Security Rulings Not to Affect Move WASHINGTON ministrations victorious record at n h e I Bankhead Robinson Claim duke since he is to wed one of its daughters Ever since the WindsorWar field romance began to be adver tised have had a notion that the former king and his prospective bride might come to live in their midst or vicinity in nearby Maryland At least they have entertained that hope To be sure it has been denied that the pair were negotiating for the pur chase of a Maryland estate but Marylanders have been unwilling to accept denials as dependable They think that they may get the Windsors as neighbors Washington ilso Eager No one has suggested that Wally and her next husbandtobe may pick Washington as place of residence However Maryland is as much a suburb of Washington as of Bal timore Moreover Mrs Warfield prev iously Simpson is quoted as de sirous to visit the national capital of the United States as well as her home town to introduce the duke to the society of the two com munities Now are Washingtons and Bal timores respective societies wishful for such an introduction One guess is suliicient to answer that query Rumors Raise Prices The presenceof the duke and duchess in itwould make the WashingtonBaltimore area the so cial center of the United States So society thinks anyway Realtors also think so Believe it or not there has been a notice able bulge in the prices placed upon estates in neighborhoods upon which the Windsors are ru mored to have had an eye Perhaps in reality they have had no such thought but even the rumor has been affective And suppose they do come here only for a visit Who knows but that it may be so pleasant for them that they will decide to stay Its Different Now Former King Edward it is true has been in Washington twice previously but only officially as the then prince of Wales He simply has been a distin guished visitor for not much more than overnight He has had no capitalizable value except for leading ho tels for a few hours As permanent residents here or hereabouts he and the duchess should be worth as much as the white house strictly socially speaking possibly more Baldwins Position Washington and Baltimore can not reasonably complain that Prime Minister Baldwin was so hardboiled in his attitude toward the former knig as to hayp forced him to resign the English throne rather than give up the woman I If Baldwin had beea more pli able his grace of Windsor would have stayed on his kingly job married Mrs or War lield and they would have been king and queen of no chance for Washington or Bal timore to gobble them lor soci ety and realtoristic purposes Going Too Far But when the British prime minister undertakes to dictate the time of the dukes marriage to Wally and who sha attend it and where they shall live after ward Washington and Baltimore reckon that he is going too far The duke quit his lingly job what he does subsequently is his business not Baldwins That is the attitude of Balti more and Washington I dont mean official Washing tons I mean The Windsors may decide lo this tenn of the supreme court climaxed by the social security decisions generated new de mands by opponents Tuesday for withdrawal of the Roosevelt ju diciary reorganization bill Senator Burke a leader of the measures foes said the validation of unemployment insurance and old age pensions knocked the last prop from under the court Speaker Bankhead their future and Senator Robinson the majority leader contended on the other hand that the security rulings would have little effect on iie court dispute Nevertheless many in the capital forecast an eventual compromise although Mr Roosevelt has given no indication he would yield Point to Score Some administration supporters pointing to the score of 12 vic tories and no defeats in this term of court said the presidents ob jectives were safe for the time at least An emergency no longer existed they contending congress now could devote its energies to other major legislation These four possibilities rsceived the most That wage and hour farm gov ernment reorganization and na tional planning legislation would get precedence over the court bill That the bill itself would give way to a constitutional amend ment to compel retirement of jus tices at 70 or 75 Compromise Possible That a compromise authorizing the president to increase the su preme court by two some similar forge to the front That the president would stand by his request for power lo en large the court unless justices over 70 retire Senator McGili pre dicted that the courts latest de cisions would result in approval cf a compromise Opposition sen ators have served notice

court this term had adopted a consti tutional viewpoint more in line with Roosevelt philosophy of strong national powers to deal with national problems The question as expressed by advocates of court revision was whether the court can be expected to continue along that line on other administration legislation Some said they would prefer to take no chances Others would let the judiciary revision proposal lie fallow1 until future decisions might run counter to what the administration contends is the proper conception of federal au thority HOUSEREJECTS LOCAL RELIEF Votes Down G 0 P Move as It
