permanent seat at Geneva—on a par

aspirations of League adherents are
only half-way realized by this step.
The group has held out hope for sev

After early years of the League,
when aversion to the bolshevlst re
gime in some quarters was wearing
away, the world’s two largest non
members were invariably linked as
possible converts. Japan and Ger
many are now the only other major
powers which are not members, and
Informed circles here said they
considered it unlikely Poland would
contest a Russian demand for a seat,

Marina Will Wear
Gown as Economy
Prince George's Fiancee
Must Limit Trousscau
Because of Poverty,
By the Associated Press.
BOHINSKO LAKE. Yugoslavia, Au
gust 31.—The gracious Princess Marina
of Greece must limit the trousseau of
her wedding to Prince George of Eng
land to modest proportions, informed
circles said today, unless the British
royal family comes to her aid.
Marina’s parents ar» almost as poor
as the proverbial church mouse. This
was cited as further evidence that the
affair is a “love” match.
Prince Nikolas, 37-year-old Marina’s
father, has been jobless and without
an Income since his brother, the late
King Constantine, lost the Oreek
throne 12 years ago.
The princess’ mother has given Ma
rina her old pre-war wedding gown to
wear when she goes to the altar with
George in Westminster Abbey this
Winter. This nuptial garment, al
though considered gorgeous in the days
of Czar Nicholas in the brilliant court
at Petrograd, will require considerable
alteration to make It fit Marina, who
is taller and slenderer than her mother.
Like Marina's father, her mother,
who was the Grand Duchess Helen
Vladimirovna of Russia, has no regu
lar income of her own. Friends be
lieve the family has been helped con
siderable in the past by Prince Chris
topher of Greece, Marina’s uncle, who
inherited some of the Leeds’ tinplate
millions and who is now living in
Rome. His wife was the late Mrs.
William B. Leeds.
Soon after leaving here early in
September, Princess Marina, accom
panied by her mother, will go to Paris
to purchase a few Inexpensive dresses
for her honeymoon.
