Barbara Hutton's Former
Husband Dies In Spain;
Girl Companion Hurt
BARCELONA, Spain, Aug. 2. - (P)
-Prince Alexis Mdivani, 31 years
old, divorced husband of Barbara
Hutton and colorful figure of interna-
tional society, died today as dra-
matically as he lived.
The Georgian Prince was killed in-
stantly and his pretty young woman
companion was injured critically in
an automobile accident after he vol-
unteered to drive the woman, who had
missed her train, to her home in
The couple left the palatial Pala-
mos home of Mdivani's sister, Mrs.
Jose Maria Sert, where the woman
had been a house guest, shortly be-
fore last midnight.
Roaring toward the French border,
Mdivani's powerful roadster struck a
culvert in a winding road at Albons,
Gerona Province, and plunged into a
Two hours later, just as her last
guests were leaving, Mrs. Sert was
notified by telephone that a motorist
had found an overturned car and
that a body had been taken to an
undertaking establishment at Albons.
Woman Believed Dying
The woman, believed to be dying
from her injuries, was taken to the
Gerona Clinical Hospital.
The Prince's sister, wife of a noted
Spanish mural painter, ordered her
own car and went immediately to the
Surgeons performed an emergency
operation on the Prince's injured
companion in an attempt to save her
life. Suffering from a fractured skull,
she remained unconscious, and hos-
pital attendants said there was little
chance for her recovery. ,
Attendants who prepared her for
the operating room said they found
no documents of identification. Until
they could communicate with Mrs.
Sert, there was no way of establish-
ing the identity of the injured girl.
Attendants said she was an at-
tractive brunet, about 25 years old and
apparently French. Servants at the
Sert home, however, said they be-
lieved her to be German.
Although Mdivani frequently drove
from Paris, where he made his head-
quarters, to visit his sister, he was lit-
tle known in Spai nexcept among a
few intimate friends with whom he
occasionally played polo.

To Red Rookie
Riggs, Rookie Infielder,
Finds Big Time Pitching
Easier To Hit
CINCINNATI, Aug. 2. - (P) -The
Reds have contributed more than
their share of news to the National
League race this season, what with the
more than satisfactory showing of
thelr two-thirds rookie lineup, and
one of the most satisfactory de-
velopments from Manager Charley
Dressen's standpoint has been Lew
Riggs' reaction to major league pitch-
Riggs, flashy young third baseman,
apparently is one of those rare birds
who find big league pitching more
reachable with their bats than the
minor league variety of curves. He
never got to the .300 mark in his four
seasons with the Columbus Red Birds
of the American association, yet he
wound up at the end of July with a
'Just Like Hornsy'
In this respect, Dwessen hopes,
Riggs is like several other players
who became outstanding stars in the
big league firmament. Rogers Horns-
by never batted .300 in the bushes;
Ty Cobb was no whirlwind with the
bat until he joined the Tigers, and
Babe Ruth clubbed at just .231 in
his one and only season in the sticks.
Riggs came to the Reds last winter
without any fanfare of publicity.
Much was written about Johnny Mize,
slugging first baseman from Roches-
ter, who would cost President Powell
Crosley, Jr., $55;000 if he was kept
after April 15. But outside of Cin-
cinnati little attention was paid to the
announcement Riggs had been se-
cured from Columbus at a cost of
Successor to Groh?
Evidently the $20,000 paid for Riggs
was well spent. Lew has been the
most consistently good ball player
on the Cincinnati Reds this year
and deserves a full share of the credit
for transforming the team from a
cellar outfit into a first division
Riggs is 25 years old, 5 feet 11
enches tall, 178 pounds, and is a left-
handed batsman. Unlike most south-
paw hitters, Lew really hits left-
handed pitchers better than he does
right-handers. A worthy successor
he is to the traditions of Heinie Groh,
the greatest third baseman the Cin-
cinati Reds ever had.

NEW YORK, Aug. 2. - (P - "Papa
-can I have a mill?"
That may become a popular family
phrase if congress approves Secre-
tary Moregnthau's recommendation
for the coinage of mill and half-cent
pieces, although the head of the treas-
ury department is interested more in
facilitating the payment of sales taxes
than in reducing the drain on Papa's
Congress "created" the mill 143
years ago, but found no need to coin
Uncle Sam is not the only coin-
maker, however. Several states -
notably Washington and Illinois -
have turned out minor coins in the
past year to make change for sales
taxes that got into fractions of a
penny. These could be used only in
paying state sales taxes, whereas the
proposed federal mills would circulate
However, if authorized by Congress,
the proposed one-mill pieces would be
legal tender only to the amount of
three cents, while the half-cent piece
would be legal to the amount of only
Nothing smaller than a penny has
been coined by the federal govern-
ment in more than 70 years. In 1793,
when the mint began striking off
coins, the smallest denomination is-
sued was that of the 5-mill, or half-
After 1835, there ceased to be any
call for them, says Howland Wood,
curator of the Numismatic Society of
America, and their coinage stopped
until 1849 when a small quantity was
issued until 1857. All in all, nearly
8,000,000 of these half-cent pieces
were put in circulation before the
mint stopped turning them out.
As far back as 1652, Massachusetts
issued its own coins, based on English
currency division. The famous Pine
Tree shillings were part of this issue.
Coins outside of the federal cur-
rency have also been made by private
enterprises. In a period extending
roughly from 1830 to 1860,sgold coins
were struck in various* states and
territories by individuals when the
government was not able to provide
them fast enough. The Mormons of
Utah issued their own coins until
In the colonial days, America de-
pended largely on English and Span-
ish money for the conduct of trade.
Spanish dollars were used largely

OGUNQUIT, Me., Aug. 2. - (P) -J
Not Mitzi Green of the impish antics,
but Miss Green of serious mien,
stepped on the stage of the summer
playhouse here in quest of her am-
bition to become a dramatic actress.
The former child star of the motion
pictures appeared in an important
role in "Murder with Pen and Ink,"
a new play by Frederick Jackson.
Now tall and willowy, a miss of 16
with an infectious smile, Mitzi admits
she has much to learn about the
stage. Some day she'd like to be an-
other Katharine Cornell or Eliza-
Beth Bergner, rather than a young
lady with a gift of mimicry.
To further this ambition, she has
studied and perspired in the hot sum-
mer afternoons with Walter Hart-
wig's company at the little play-house
during rehearsals of Jackson's com-
Hartwig, her director, has high
praise for her dramatic talent.

The boys were sent out one by one
