HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Mayor of Fairbanks Soys Alaska Good Place to Catch a Husband NEW YORK-W-Looltlng for a good strong man to build your life around, sister? Well, If you're a robust, warm- )looded girl, don't overlook Alaska. The odds are in your favor there. "It's a great place for a girl to find a husband," said Maurice T. Johnson, mayor of Fairbanks, which le says is the third largest city n Alaska and "the largest one [ai' north." It has 12,000 people, counting its farming-suburbs. "There arc about three men to jvery woman _ maybe more — llH'OUBhout the territory," said Johnson, adding this note of cauUon: "But a lot o' young girls who came up there and saw our roueh- newn old miners might feel disappointed. They might even want to •jrn around and come back." However, though the men are as .ngged as the scenery, a girl needn't worry about there being any lack Frcmchot Tone's Divorced Wife Attempts Suicide LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21—M'J— Only hours after she dined with her divorced husband, Friinchot Tone, and their two children, beautiful blonde actress Jean Wallace stabbed herself in the abdomen with a butcher knife.

But police called it an attempted suicide and said that only tlie intervention of her mother prevented more serious injury or death.

'In June we can play baseball at midnight without artificial Jghts," he remarked, "it never gets dark in summer." The mayor, before taking off for Fairbanks, expressed relief he had xen able to complete his business n New York before winter trapped him here 'T understand you had a 25-inch iruiwlall In one day a couple of Fears ago," he said. "Why, we never have a snow like that up home, ly had 31 Inches all told last year. Don't see how you handle it of heat in the long Alaskan win- r Mayor Johnson and City Clerk E. A. Tonsfcth came to Manhattan to that. They had the chore of ilgnlng a S4.500.000 bond issue to build Fairbanks a new municipally owned newer plant and water treatment system. "It was Hie (ivst revenue bond Issue ever Hosted In Alaska," «ald ttu mayor. " < They had expeclcd to" have sore arms and spend two days signing the 4,500 Bonds—each (or ?1.000. But It Uiok them only an liour. "It was amazingly simple," said Johnson. "They have signing machines. You oress down on one pen and ip other pens sign, too.!' The mayor, a lawyer from Woodstock, in., who took his family to Alaska during the last depression, bciiev-js the territory has a future for young people with courage to face a rugged life. 'It now has a population of only 100.000," he said. "But I don't see why It couldn't support 500.000. That would still be less than one person to a square mile. It's a pretty sizeable chunk of ground up there." The call of the Alaskan wild has tamed since the day of Jack London and Robert Service. "We probably use planes more than you do here." said Johnson. "Dog trams, around the cities at least, are just local color now." The lady that was known as Lou doesn't live there any more. The districts haunted by shady women have been broken up at the request of commajiders of Army Air Force bases. Prospectors arc more Interested in finding oil than gold. And—shades ot the faded past! the mighty game of poker now is secondary to another pastime, an Arctic Bingo called Pagini or "Pan." "It's a kind of cold weather gin rummy," explained the mayor. "Tlie game is very popular—you can only win "or'lose a little" if you play all night."
