Heine's Second Cousin Preceded
Princess Grace as Monaco Ruler

Contrary to popular conception,
researchers at the American Jew-
ish Archives in Cincinnati report
that Grace Kelly was not the first
American woman to share- the
throne of Monaco. Alice Heine,
second cousin of the famous Ger-
man-Jewish poet Heinrich Heine
and daughter of a prominent New
Orleans Jewish family, graced the
throne of that postage stamp-sized
principality for thirteen years. As
of the late 1800s, she was the only
American women to hold the dis-
tinction of being the wife of a rul-
ing sovereign; she was very likely
the first monarch of Jewish ori-
gin in over 1,800 years. Her reign
and marraige ended with divorce
in 1902.
As Princess of Monaco, she fol-
lowed in the tradition of Athalia
of ancient Israel, Salome Alexan-
dra of Judea, Helena of Adiabene,
and Bernice of Cilicia. Alice
Heine's story forms but a small
part of the fascinating material on
the New Orleans Jewish Commu-
nity to be found at the American
Jewish Archives on the campus of
the Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion.
Alice Heine. born in 1858, was
the daughter of Michael and Am-
elie Miltonberger Heine, of New

Orleans. Achieving some promin-
ence as a banker in New Orleans,
her father later settled in Paris
where he became a noted finan-
cier. Alice married the Due de
Richelieu, but was widowed a few
years later. Following some years
of widowhood, she attracted the
attention of the Prince of Monaco,
sovereign over the oldest monarch-
ies in Europe, noted chiefly as the
seat of Monte Carlo.
Princess Alice was the first sov-
ereign of Jewish origin since Queen
Helena of Adiabene and Queen
Berenice of Cilicia. Helena, the
wife of .Monobaz I of Adiabene,
had been converted to Judaism in
30 C.E. and became an ardent Jew-
ess. According to Josephus, the
ancient Jewish historian, she sent
sacrifices to the Temple, had her
sons educated in Jerusalem, and
was buried there. Berenice, a scion
of the Hasmonean (Maccabbean)
dynasty, formed a liaison with the
Roman emperor Titus and is said
to have come very close to mar-
raige with him.
The American Jewsh Archives,
with Dr. Jacob Rader Marcus, the
noted historian, at its head, is a
veritable treasurehouse of informa-
tion about the American Jewish
community.

Yarniolinsky and Babette Deutsch
Produce Russian Verse Anthology

Babette Deutsch, herself among
the great American poets, an au-
thority on the writing of and inter-
pretation of the leaders in verse
writing, is the translator of the
Russian poems, the anthology from
Lomonosof to Voznesensky, pub-
Iished by Random House under the
title "Two Centuries of Russian
Verse."
Her husband, Avraham Yarmo-
linsky, edited the book, wrote the
introduction and the notes.
It is an outstanding work by two
authorities on Russian literature,
and it is important because it in-
cludes the verses of the best names
in. Russian writings.
Better- as well as lesser-known

names are among those whose
works have been included here.
There are those of Boris Paster-
nak, Mikhail Lermontov, Yevgeny
Yevtushenko, Alexander Pushkin
and Alexey K. Tolstoi; and there
are selections from Alexander
Blok, Ivan Bunin, Osip Mandelsh-
tam, Yelena Akselrod.
The evaluation essay by Yarmo-
linsky throws light on the Russian
attitudes and the poetic genius of
the people; at the same time it re-
veals some of the reactions that
set in under Stalin and the Pas-
ternak episodes that centered in
Zhivago. The Deutsch-Yarmolinsky
anthology is a most significant ad-
dition to the study of world liter-
ature.

France, Israel Seen Ready to Invite
Moscow to Join Pact on Mid-East

PARIS (JTA)—France and Is-
rael are reportedly in agreement
on plans to ask the Soviet Union
to join the 1950 Tripartite Decla-
ration, guaranteeing the territorial
Integrity of all states in the Middle
East, it was revealed here Monday.
The disclosure came unofficially
after Israel's ambassador here,
Walter Eytan, held a 40-minute
conference Monday morning with
French Foreign Minister Maurice
Couve de Murville.
Israeli circles here, who said
the talk was "important" and its
results "satisfactory," refused
formally to reveal the nature of
the subjects discussed. But well-
informed sources indicated that
Eytan and Couve de Murville
talked principally , of two mat-

ters, one of them concerning
the visit to be paid to Moscow
later this month by President
Charles de Gaulle.
Eytan reportedly informed
France of Israel's interest in the
transformation of the 1950 decla-
ration — which had been issued by
France, Britain and the United
States—into a four-power attitude
including the USSR.
The Israeli ambassador and the
French foreign minister were said
to have found themselves viewing
that problem in identical fashion,
indicating that Gen. de Gaulle may
discuss that issue with the Krem-
lin's leaders when he visits Mos-
cow.

habits are just as responsible as
food shortages in conditions of mal-
nutrition and undernourishment,
UNICEF experts claim. Nations
expecting to overcome this condi-
tion in their population must de-
velop long-term programs for hos-
pitals, health centers, and home
care, they say. Ignorance of food
needs and values: untreated dis-
eases, with emphasis on insuf-
ficient medical care for children;
lack of sound weaning programs
and the ever-present factor of
over-population with no means of
coping with it must be corrected.

Optic Field Pioneer
Leonard S. Ornstein, a Dutch-
Jewish physicist who worked in the
early part of this century, was one
of the leading pioneers in the field
of optics. He was instrumental in
the establishment of the Institute
of Physics at the Hebrew Uni-
versity.

Faulkner Study-Noteworthy literary Criticism

William Faulkner, winner of the
1949 Nobel Prize for Literature,
author of more best sellers than
any other man in his generation,
is the subject of an important
critical analysis in a volume just
published by Random House that
may well emerge as one of the
major textbooks for students of
American literature.
Michael Millgate, an English-
man, in his volume "The Achieve-

meat of William Faulkner," has
produced such an impressive study
that those who have read the
Faulkner novels will marvel at the
thoroughness, the expert review-
ing, the masterful criticism of the
great works of our time.
Millgate, who is now profes-
sor of English at York University
in Toronto, incorporated in his
book an interesting biographical
sketch of Faulkner and a resume

with commentaries of 19 of
Faulkner's novels.
Many letters, pre-publication ver-
sions of Faulkner's books, unpub-
lished works are presented here.
Faulkner's views on the Smith—
he is a native southerner—and
other attitudes are part of this
great study which deserves a place
among the best volumes of literary
criticism.

How to Be a Rothschild

BY DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright, 1966, JTA, Inc.)

The other day Sophia Loren was
in London at some function, sitting
by the side of one of the Roths-
childs, and the screen star was
talking to him of her stay in Israel,
where she recently made a movie.
"I have never been there," said
Rothschild.
"Well you should go," said Miss
Loren. "You know there is a Roths-
child Boulevard in Tel Aviv, and
there is also a Rothschild agri-
cultural settlement."
Both are named after the French
member of the Rothschild clan,
Baron Edmond de Rothschild, bet-
ter known by the Hebrew term,
"HaNadiv Hayaduah" (the well-
known benefactor).
• It is a great family—the Roths-
childs. Today, the Rothschild for-
tune is eclipsed by many greater
ones; but in its heyday, it was un-
rivaled, and never before or since
has a fortune commanded so much
power and prestige. It did not arise
from a simple stroke of good for-
tune as many of the fabulous oil
fortunes of today. The ability to
dig a hole is a talent fairly com-
mon to most men, and it is just
luck if the hole happens to be full
of the sticky substance known as
oil.
The Rothschild fortune arose dif-
ferently.
Everyone passes those little
shops where to the outsider it
seems as though some sleepy-look-
ing dealer functions selling old
coins and stamps. Mayer Roths-
child started as a dealer in old
coins. Old Mayer Rothschild got
well acquainted with one of the
rulers of a German state whose
hobby was coin collecting. Later
Rothschild branched out into
money lending, as it was called
then. Today we speak more re-
spectfully of it as banking.
The second item in the Roth-

Head of Household

There are three separate rate
schedules used in computing in-
come tax liability. Schedule I is
used by those filing a separate
return. Schedule II is used for
those allowed to file a joint re-
turn; and Schedule III is used for
those who qualify as "h e a d of
household."
To qualify as head of house-
hold, you must be unmarried or
legally separated as of the end of
the year. You must have furnished
over half of the cost of maintain-
ing a household for the entire year
for at least one other person who
is related to you. Your unmarried
child, grandchild or stepchild must
live with you. These persons, how-
ever, do not have to qualify as
your dependents in order for you
to claim head of household. Your
father and mother do not have to
live with you, but they must qualify
as your dependent. All other rela-
tives must live with you and also
qualify as your dependents.
Where the relative is required
to be a dependent, such status may
not arise from a multiple support
agreement. The dependent must re-
ceive over half of his support from
you.
Cost of maintaining the house-
hold refers to the household it-
self. This would include such costs
as rent, mortgage interest (not
principal), taxes, insurance on the
premises, upkeep and repair, util-
ities, domestic help, and food con-
sumed in the home.
Use Form 1040 when claiming
this status.
