(The Hague, Holland) Prime minister Joop M. den Uyl says government can't find evidence Prince actually accepted money, but tried to use influence to make others rich. Says there'll be no trial because monarchy must be protected. Queen Juliana will stay on throne, but Prince will resign all posts. Prince had been Dutch hero and highly respected; now expected to stay out of sight to give monarchy chance to recover.
