MAY UNITE BRITAIN AND ITALY
IN MARKIARE ALLIANCE.
Italy and England mny soon he al
lied, not only by the bonds of war,
but by a royal marriage as well, if the
reports of the engagement of Princess
olande of Italy to F'dwnrd of Wales,
'rnue of Wales, are true.
The 22-year-old Prime of Wales
visited Rome a tew week's ago and
then made a trip to the Italian front,
where he was the guest of King Vic
tor Emmanuel. After his return the
king is said to have summoned the
princess, with the queen, to army
headquarters, to extend his congratu
lations. It was while returning from
this visit that the queen and Princess
Jolande narrowly escaped death when
Austrian aviators attacked their train.
The Princess Jolande celebrated her
15th birthday June I. She is said to
be extremely popular with the Italian
people. Interest in the reported en
gagement centers in the fact that the
bonds of friendship between two of
the allies would be materially
strengthened by the marriage.
G. II. Harris was host to a party of
four, and other reservations for four
were made for Miss Ida Sharp, Mr.
and Mrs. T. J. Stewart, 2d, and Mr.
Leo C. Robinson. Mr. V. . Lake,
Mr. Ben Wharton and the K. H.
Spragues entertained small parties.
Dr. Le Roy Crummcr gives a dinner
this evening to six and on Wednesday
evening, Mrs. J. F. Yates will be host
ess to eleven.
