    THE OIL OF SHEIKDOM BAHREIN IN THE PERSIAN GULF PROCLAIMED THE ACCESSION OF ITS NEW RULER, SHEIKH ISA BIN SULMAN AL KHALIFA, IN A DAY OF CELEBRATIONS ON DECEMBER 16.

    AMONG THOSE ATTENDING THE CEREMONY WAS SIR WILLIAM LUCE, BRITISH POLITICAL RESIDENT IN BAHREIN, WHICH IS RAPIDLY BECOMING ONE OF BRITAIN'S MAJOR STRONGHOLDS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    IN HIS ACCESSION SPEECH, SHEIKH ISA SAID HE WISHED TO STRENGTHEN HIS COUNTRY'S TIES WITH BOTH THE ARAB WORLD AND HER ALLIES AND FRIENDS OVERSEAS.

    A CROWD OF TEN THOUSAND MOBBED THE SHEIKH'S CAR AS HE DROVE TO HIS WINTER PALACE AT THE CAPITAL, MANAMA, AND AIRCRAFT FLEW OVERHEAD DISTRIBUTING LEAFLET CONGRATULATIONS.

    SHEIKH ISA BECAME RULER ON THE DEATH OF HIS FATHER IN NOVEMBER, BUT CELEBRATIONS HAD TO AWAIT THE END OF THE CUSTOMARY FORTY-DAY MOURNING PERIODS.
