Two huge piles of fresh fruit, topped by a pineapple signifying welfare, decorated the room and during the 20- minute Javanese ceremony Indrawati wore seven different colored knee-length coats. She opened the ceremony by pelting Nondon with betel leaves, because, according to legend, a bride's betel leaves once fell on her groom and turned him into a snake. Nondon remained human, thus proving 1 his Jove was pure, real and honest. The bridal pair then sat on a seat decorated with white silk and white flowers—for purity—and showed their love and devotion by feeding each other with rice. At the end o£ the ceremony, Nondon gave his bride a bag of rice and money, which in Java means that all he earns will be given to her. Guess Who . . .

Four Elopers Pause For Cool-Off Time LONDON, May 22 (UPI) —Two young couples'who defied parental, displeasure and eloped to Scotland called off their weddings Friday to return home for a cooling- off period. HEIRESS Katharine Dowsett, 20, and playboy Edward Langley, 27, arrived back in London from Gretna Green,' Scotland, and said they would meet Katharine's father, shipbuilder Harry Dowsett, to talk over affairs during the weekend. The other couple, Jeffrey Herscheson, 20, and the family maid, 20-year-old Sylvia Polentarutti, Zurich, Switzerland, also canceled wedding plans after Jeffrey's mother said it would be all right for them to marry if they would wait six months to think it over, MRS. SALLY Herscheson, wife of a wealthy London Silversmith, dashed off to Gretna Green early Friday to talk to the runaways. She later told newsmen, "I am now convinced that Jeffrey is very deeply in love with Sylvia, and I am more happy about it. I have told Jeffrey that if he comes home he can be married in six months' time. "If I had not jjiven my consent ... I would have lost my son. and I don't want to do that." The almost-bride had something to say, too: "I think we have done the right thing and I am very happy about it." The Herschesons earlier offered their son a generous weekly allowance, a new car and a directorship in the family firm if he would forget Sylvia. He said no. DOWSETT'S parental objections to his daughter's marriage to Langley, a Chelsea society figure, had come in the form of legal papers. He got an English court to issue an order restraining the couple from being married and demanding that Langley return Katharine "to the jurisdiction of the courts."
