Farouk Deprives Mother
Of Title and Royal Rights
By tH# AwocioUd Pr»«»
CAIRO, Aug. 8.—The official
gazette today printed a decree by
King Farouk stripping his mother,
Queen Nasli, of her title and all
royal rights.
King Farouk’s action presum
ably was taken because of the
Queen Mother’s continued sup
port of the marriage of his sister,
former Princess Fathia, to Riad
Chali, a Coptic Christian com
The couple were married, despite
King Farouk’s opposition, in a
civil ceremony last April in San
Francisco, where they and Queen
Nasli are living. In May they
went through a Moslem ceremony
in an effort to appease the King.
In July, however, the Egyptian
Royal Council voided the mar
riage, placed the Queen Mother’s
assets under custody and removed
her as custodian of the Princess.
Queen Nazll said subsequently
she would remain in America, at
least for the present.

the handy built*in squeezer. You don’t need rubber gloves. You
don’t need any clumsy, extra attachments on the scrub bucket.
