But a Cuban girl, Martl- .c» Alberni, decided to do something different — she now makes her living under water. She met her husband and business partner. Bronson Hartley, five years ago, when she was 19. As part of his courtship, he took her down to a coral reef, 25 feet under the Bermuda waters. There he had made friends with a colony of fish — angel fish, parrot fish, sergeant-majors, sea horses, hogfish, snappers and many others. To say he made friends with them Is no exaggeration. They were his close associates in an unusual occupation, that of taking tourists deep under water to see strange fish and vegetation. Bronson has been taking people under water since the age of 11, when he built his first diving helmets for himself and his friends. Now, as a young man, he makes his living at it. He knows the fish so well — the same fish visit after visit — that they come to him when he offers them food, mainly mussels. Identifying marks on the fish are pointed out to skeptics who don't Marlica Hartley wears diving helmet that is part of her workinj equipment. She earns her living deep under water. believe they are his friends. This familiarity with the fish has resulted In an unusual color movie, "Main Street, Under Sea." Bronson showed some of his own tUm Uke* wid*r wafer to vWtlug producw, .who ooaeclved ttw idea of * fantasy film with tht Ilih ai characters, the coral rxfi aa »• bulUDnn 1" * tc "™' and Martlca as the only human being In the film. For most of the fllm'i shots, Martlca wears a diving; helmet with glax on three sides, In addition to a variety of attractive bathing suit«. She goes under water to find a dream world but finds the fish world much the same as the human world. A red hind plays the part of a solid citizen, an angel fish is a cabaret dancer, two sea horses are young lovers, a pink squirrel fish is a spinster, a porcupine fish is the mayor, lobsters and an octopus are racketeers and hoodlums. The Hartleys have made thousands of undersea dives, mostly from 15 to 20 feet under. i Martica's part in the day-to-day business of showing tourists the undersea sights Is to run and take care of the 30-footboat's engine, make the tourists comfortable on board, and supervise the oxygen tank while tourists are under water. Two tourists at a time accompany Bronson down a ladder — 15 to 20 feet below the surface, although with Bronson's helmets they can go as deep as 60 feet. 5 Baptist Circle Meetings Held Five Circles of the Woman's Missionary Union ot Calvary Baptist Church met at the homes of members yesterday for Bible study and business meetings.
