MONDAY, MAY 22, 1950 1950 Model Embezzlers Hit All Types of Business in U. S. dreaming too much of the ficsh|X)ts. That description comes from the United Stales Fidelity and Guaranty Company In a study of 1,001 case histories ol embezzlements since tf. 1947. The same study published a ^ similar survey in 1931. A Blurred Image The new study discloses that the typical embezzler today Is a "considerably blurred" linage of his predecessor of 15 years ago. But there are some differences. The postwar man or woman who makes off with company funds is younger, earns more money, less often married and has fewer dependents. Their characters and p?.st records are less favorable, and they have worked shorter periods for their companies. " They are more likely to abscond, less likely to commit suicide than their earlier counterparts. 1950 Mnclel Ahscnnrirr The survey describe.! the 1050 absconder like this: "As a rule he succumbs to the same tcmplatfons and fails his trust under the same general clrcum stances. Loss ot savings, reduction in income, accumulated or fpolis'nU acquired debts, living beyond his means, the -'other woman,' excessive drinking or gambling, an ill, nag ging or extravagant wife, sick chll dren, any or all of these may leail him to be false to the trust reposed in him." The new study of 1,001 embezzlers covers 845 men and 156 women who .among them took $3,648,641.27. The jgirien were responsible for losses to- ^Jiling 53.544,222.89. The women stole $140,418.38. ' . Of the total U.S.P. and O. can- nlly emphasized only $2,066,245.40 was covered by surety bonds. The employers lost Sl.618,395.87. The tabulations show that the Postwar embezzlers lived anywhere, everywhere. Every state In the union and all types of business were represented. Worker! Everywhere Some worked in large establishments, others were the sole em- ploye. And they were In positions of every degree of importance, from handyman to heads of establishments. Here are a few samples from the one thousand and one: Case No. 57-S-211 was a $10,000 a year financial house official who became an Inveterate gambler afler a casual visit to the race track. Before he was through he had sunk 4192,000 of the firm's money on im- _profilable "investments", at the '•WWThe $5,000 a year business man- 53-5-129 eloped with a woman em- ploye, taking $2,270 of the ho money. No. ll-S-129 was a 23-year- old bookkeeper who became infatuated with a salesman and advanced him enough 'of her employer's money to buy a car. All passed scrutiny of the employer and the underwriter and were bonded against dishonesty. The U.5.F. and G. saw no reason to change a statement in Its earlier survey that embezzlement is "proof that it is Impossible to predict with certainty the future actions of any man."

'Hairless' Musician Can Be Well-Paid .'ay Judge P. L. E. Rawlins sees it, a musician can be a well- paid longhair without any hair at all. Or so he told 46-year-old Theodorus Peondies, pianist and tenor, who sued hairdresser Charles Ellis for 200 pounds (S560) in damages. Theo, salt! his lawyer, had a "magnificent head" of shiny black hair. It turned gray at the edges. He went to Ellis and got his locks blackened. He also got a skin disease, he charged, and lost most of his crowning glory. He feared a bald dome would cut his earning power. Long hair, Theo's lawyer asserted Is accepted in musical circles as part and parcel of a musician who wants to appeal to his public " Not so, ruled the judge. There's bald Sir Adrian Botilt, retiring this year after long success as conductor of the British Broadcasting Corporation's symphony, one of the country's best. "Sir Adrian isn't well oil for hair, is he?" asked the judge, "and fie is a famous musician." Awarding damages of only 60 pounds ($168), the jurist remarked: There Is not a title of evidence day of April, 1950. Harvey Morris, Clerk By Ruth Magee, D. C.

Blue-Tailed Monkey Is Returned to Cage After Drive- In Romp INDIANAPOLIS, Inrf., May 22. ^ — A blue-tailed monkey fresh from Africa was back in her cage today after a three-day romp in a 90 foot screen tower in a drive-in theater. She escaped while being transferred to her cage in the theater's zoo Thursday. The theater owner received scores of suggestions on how to catch' her, but nothing worked. •;- ... •, . . . Unaccountably, the monk came down yesterday. She was chased around the basement of an adjacent home and trapped in a section of tile pipe. Her homecoming in the zoo cage was less than cordial. Her mate paid her no heed until she got a banana. Then she had to slap him down before she could eat it. You'll Love Our Flowers!
