8 OFFICIAL SNUB FOR AMERICAN GIRL WHO DARED WED DUKE Puke of Croy and Duchess of Croy, the American heiress who is officially snubbed for her marriage to German noble. BERLIN*. Dec. 27. —The loner ex pected official snub for the Duchess of Croy because she. as an American girl without a title, dared to marry a ducal prince, came in the 1914 edition of the Almanac de Gotha. .

This phraseology, which is unusual ln the Almanac, printed at the in stigation of the Prussian Royal Her ald's offlce, is intended as notice to the Duke that his wif© is not en titled to the privileges of the kai ser's court or tho other royal courts of Germany. When the Duke of Croy and Miss Nancy Leishman were married at Ge neva, October 28. there was a strong presumption that the bride would j not be acknowledged as the Duchess j of Croy in Germ...
