Garrison Gsnsral Agent ^_ MIS Finnan Explains Park Work » Linder Way in Franklin Square. Repeal of the so-called "red rider" was urged by the Mid-City Citizens’ Association last night in a resolution indorsing the Sisson bill now pending in Congress. The resolution was in troduced by Miss Edith L. Grosvenor. The association heard addresses by C. Marshall Finnan, superintendent, and Malcolm Kirkpatrick, resident landscape architect of the National Capital Parks, who explained the pro gram of rehabilitation of the city’s parks now under way. Particular stress was laid on the changes being made in Franklin Park. Says Expert Drew Plans. Finnan said that while parks offi cials are receiving a great deal of criticism he believes most comes from persons unfamiliar with the plans which he said are the result of the cumulative efforts of some of the greatest landscape architects in the country. Kirkpatrick, who exhibited and ex plained drawings of Franklin Park as it will look in the future, defended removal of shrubbery and trees which he said have degenerated and need to be replaced. Oppose Vaccination Ban. More rigid police enforcement of the regulation prohibiting parking within 25 feet of street and alley in tersections, and of the regulation against glaring automobile headlights was asked in a resolution. The group voted to disapprove a House bill which would eliminate the practice of vacci nating children before they enter school. The group Indorsed the anti-noise campaign of the Commissioners in another measure introduced by Frank B. Hoffman. Miss Edna M. Holland was named as delegate to the City Wide Playground Association. King Fuad (Continued From First Page.) victim of a severe attack of pleurisy which weakened his heart, j The troubled political situation in j Cairo, including the revival of the Wafd party strength, leading up to recent street rioting, the interplay of British and Italian opinion and the emphasis on military questions made it more difficult for the Egyptian mon arch to throw off the lingering effects ! of his 1934 illness. His death came at a time when ; Anglo-Egyptian relations had only re cently progressed from the riot stage, caused by agitators, to peaceful nego tiations for a treaty of alliance. To the extent which his death now creates a certain internal instability in Egypt, it is expected to have an | adverse effect on British and Egyp tian relations and may delay nego ! tiations. Prospects Complicated. The fact that Crown Prince Parouk is a minor, requiring a regency coun cil until he comes of age on his 18th j birthday, further complicates mat i ters politically. The proper handling of the situa tion by British officials may, it was pointed out by authorities, do much, on the other hand, to re-establish British prestige and further the idea of Anglo-Egyptian co-operation. In official circles, the situation is regarded as further complicated by the prevailing tensity in the Medi terranean. The premier was holding a cabinet meeting when a palace official tele phoned him and announced the king's death. The premier, stunned with the sud denness of Fuad's end after the mon arch's surprising early morning rally, communicated the tidings to the wait ing ministers. Nominees’ Names Awaited. All Cairo was wondering today when the sealed envelope, containing the names of Fuad's nominees for the regency council of three would be opened. Those eligible for the nom ination are princes, former premiers, ministers, former ministers, presidents and former presidents of Parliament. Physicians had been in attendance at the King's bedside throughout the night, anxiously watching for any in crease in the gangrene of the jaw which, it was announced last night, had reached Fuad’s throat. The weakness of the monarch's heart prevented an operation. During the rally before his death, Fuad told his doctors: “I am not going to die.” While the King lay dying in Koub beh palace, outside the city, thousands of citizens stood about Abdin palace in the center of the city chanting: “God preserve our King." Although Ahmed Fuad had worn the title of Khedive of Egypt from 1917, he did not become King until March, 1922, when Great Britain re linquished its protectorate. It was long years before problems of rule occupied him that he en countered the first attack on his throat. A brother-in-law, another Khedivial prince, fired a pistol at him in the fashionable Cairo native club one night in the 1890s and the bullet struck his throat. His recovery was slow and imper fect, leaving a curious nervous re action, half laugh and half cough, of the throat muscles. Physicians have not linked the old wound with the present illness by more than coincidence. Reign of Strategic Value. As a protecting buffer for Britain’s Suez and Sudan holdings, King Fuad's reign proved one of great strategic importance. Placed on the throne as Khedive with the aid of Great Britain in 1917, Ahmed Fuad was a staunch ally of the island empire from the beginning. Partly through restoration of the 1923 constitution ladt Winter, King Fuad prevented a governmental crisis at a time when British cruisers were plying the Mediterranean and Italian airplanes were circling overhead in menacing fashion. Members of the royal family other than the Crown Prince were at the King's beside today. First crowned ruler of Egypt in 2,000 years of the ancient land’s later history, King Fuad I won for himself recognition as a wise and congenial monarch. In recent years his reign was married by recurrent crises spring ing from nationalist antipathy toward Great Britain's influence. In 1929 he made a six months' tour of Europe, visiting Sicily, Italy, Ger many, Switzerland, France and Eng land. Two years before'he had visited France and England, greeted by royalty and pomju Be discussed, but never made, a visit to the United States. Aging and ailing, the 67-year-old King in 1935 found his land again torn by anti-British riots which threatened to dislodge the cabinet and precipitate a crisis with Great Britain. On the eve of the cabinet's planned resignation, in December, he decreed restoration of the 1923 con stitution, which he had suspended a year before. The move restored a semblance of peace among the country's opposing political groups, and the cabinet did not fall. The Wafdist, or Nationalist, party’s agitations had furnished frequent cause for concern in the ramifications of British-Egyptian relations, with Britain constantly alert to protect her Suez and Sudanese interests, and with anti-British forces within Egypt bit terly resentful of the sort of protec torate relationship the empire sought to preserve. In 1927 there had been another British crisis, in which the empire countered in the assassination of one of its officials by presenting an ulti matum at whose stringent terms for British security the Egyptian premier quibbled and finally balked entirely. The internal situation was aggra vated the following year. In June a newspaper published photographs pur porting to show documents which, if genuine, connected the premier Nahas Pasha and certain colleagues with an unsavory intrigue. Forced Premier From Office. Seizing the opportunity to tighten his rule. King Fuad forced Premier Nahas from office the next month, dis missed Parliament for three years and announced he would take the reins of government into his own hands. Later he made Mahmud Pasha, liberal lead er, premier under his hand. Fuad was bom March 26. 1868. Until he was 10 years old he at tended a special school in Cairo, then spent two years at school in Geneva and later attended the Italian Military School at Turin, where Victor Em manuel, now King of Italy, also was a cadet. King Fuad was twice married and is survived by Crown Prince Farouk and five daughters. In 1896 he married Princess Chiv ekar and had one daughter, Princess Fewkie. Later Fuad and Princess Chivekar were divorced. His second marriage was to Princess Nazli in 1919. Farouk was the first child of this marriage. The others were the Princesses Fawkia, Fazia, Falka and Fathia. STUDENT IS NEW KING. "Perfectly Educated Boy” to Follow Father on Throne. LONDON, April 28 <JP).—Egypt's new King is the 16-year-old Crown Prince Farouk, whose teachers have described him as the “perfectly educated boy." The death of his father, King Faud I, came on the eve of the prince’* planned departure for Cairo from Kenry House, Kingston Hill, where he has been studying for entrance to the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. The 6-foot prince will rule under a regency until he is 18 years old, his father having left a sealed envelope containing his choice for regents. Good looking, affable and unusually mature in appearance, Farouk has been carefully educated from childhood in keeping with his father’s maxim: "It is nothing to be a prinoe, but it is something to be useful.” The prince has been a resident of England since last October, living in a large stone mansion with a personal staff. Farouk was not immediately informed of his father's death, pend ing the receipt of official word from Cairo. The new King reads widely and is an ardent stamp collector, a good ama teur photographer and an all-around sportsman. His favorite sports are boxing, swimming and polo. When Farouk was 13, King Fuad conferred on him the title “Prince of El Said”—or Prince of Upper Egypt. Since then be has represented his father at many republic functions. Be fore leaving Egypt, he represented King Fuad at official celebrations in connection with the Prophet Moham med’s birthday anniversary, the great festival in the Egyptian calendar. His personal staff in England in cluded a teacher of Arabic to Insure that he would not forget his native tongue. BOY SLAYER FREED BRATTLEBORO, Vt., April 38 (IP).— Albert Fields, 17, who shot his step father to death April 18, walked to freedom last night after a grand jury had exonerated him. The boy killed the stepfather, Timo thy Merrill, 47, in their farm home after the latter had beaten Albert’s mother during a domestic quarrel.
