ONIONS, NOT ORCHIDS British Models Reach U. S. Crave Food, Spurn Flowers By INEZ ROBB NEW YORK (INS) Glamor girls, beautiful and in full possession of their mental zippers, who prefer onions to orchids are something new in the female of the species. Yet such is the case history of 18 lovely English mannequins, each an indubitable chickadee, who arrived in New York yesterday. They are en route to South America on an official government mission to display English clothes, arouse interest in English fashions and prove that Britain not only delivers the goods but the girls. "Orchids!" they cried scornfully and literally In chorus as they registered at a New York hotel yesterday. "We don't want orchids. We want onions! We haven't had any at home for months!" This uninhibited longing for onions on the part of such orchi daceous creatures even threw the press off its stride momentarily As for the girls, the hazards of crossing the submarine-infested. bomber-menaced north Atlantic in a convoy of slow, uncomfort able ships was instantly forgotten in the general rejoicing that followed assurance that the United States was a land flowing with milk and onions. "An onion Is like a jewel," lovingly crooned Cynthia ST. PETERSBURG, TIMES, khr v ft ' J n When the DeLand high school started to unload its 'equipment it looked as though the circus was in town. However, under the capable direction of Don McEmber, left, and Walt Malmborg, right, it proved to be a short task.

"It's a lovely thing," was the dreamy tribute of blond Rosemary Cross, a relative of Lord Willlngdon. The onlv peril in their con voyed trip across the Atlantic about which the girl would talk was that inherent in the plentiful food aboard ship. They are terrified lest they have simultan eously paten themselves out of their clothes and their jobs. All the lovely models marie of British fabrics for the South African trade by such famous courturiers as Worth, Paquin, Molyneux, Norman Hartnell, Creed and Lachasse wese fitted to the mannequins' war-time chassis in London. All frankly moaned they had eaten like pigs and loved every bite of it on the long voyage over. "We haven't seen so much food in ages as there was on board that little ship," said vivacious Irene Brown. "We had what would be a whole week's ration at home for a single meal. "We ate and ate and the stewards kept running bark to the kitchen for more. The dining room stewards used to watch us eat In amr.emrnt. Finally, one of them said, 'Miss, 'ow ever do yon keep yer girlish figure?'

As for their first American meal in New York well, that was equal to two weeks' rations in tastiness. variety and with the precious onions to boot. The girls were torn between joy and terror at the prospect of 11 days in New York before they sail on their South American mission, duly chaperoned by British officials. They are jubilant at the chance to see New York, but horrified lest the food tempt them beyond their fast IFir feovol mmmit T..J.'4U 1 1.X T - T luujiii r-risieui, jdiic orannen, uenier, aim J can Aseimun, oi me caaeues oi me taison nign scnooi band. waning strength to resist anything edible. Despite the tales of prodigious and continuous meals on board ship, the girls looked as slim, svelte and slat-modeled as do all English rotagravure duchesses.
