.£*£-» ~^H g^^r^*^^ SIXTEEN .MASON (JITV GL.OBE-GAZETTE,,JANUARY 7 fl| 1937 n LOVELORN SCAR SAINT'S STATUE Permanent Substance Is Sought as Belief Persists. BREST, France, (UP)--Breton ecclesiastical officials are searching for an asbestos or carborun- dum nose for one of Brittany's favorite saints. They find that he- cause of his popularity among the Breton women folk the saint's third nose has disappeared. Weary of replacing his noses they are searching for something really permanent.' ' ' ' Saint Guirec, Breton patron saint of young maidens desiring marriage, has lost his nose several times since he began his good work in the 13th century. Ecclesiastical authorities thought they had solved their problem by erect- ting a granite statue of the saint after his first wooden noses disappeared, but they never counted on the force of love. Tourists who are familiar with the many statues of saints in European cathedrals have seen the hollowed marble on toes, or fingers, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have left the imprint of their ardor, but few of them have seen the Breton holy man whose sore point is his nose. Nose Is Pricked. According to Breton legends, Saint Guirec is an expert at arranging marriages, and if only the young woman who seeks a proper spouse will prick his nose with a pin and then say the proper prayers, everything will soon be ready. This promise has brought \vomen of all ages and with all-sized pins floclcing to his statue here. These assaults have made it necessary to replace the nose time and again. At first Saint Guirec was em- , bodied in a wooden statue with a frail wooden nose, but by daily pin pricking soon there was no nose at all. Besieged by women trying to stick to the letter of the ritual, the nose was replaced by the authorities. It was only a wooden nose that followed the first and it soon suffered the same fate. Finally authorities decided to have done with this perpetual replacing of noses Serial Star Freed more substantial, for who can say liat the physical impulse has not been the motivating force in winning intercession for the marriageable Breton maids? And if a pin- esisling nose were found for the saint, what would happen in Brittany? , Released from Los Angeles jail, Juanlta. Hanscn, movie serial queen 20 years a?o, protested her arrest on suspicion of violating the state narcotic act. "The actress, now working: on a federal theater project, was arrested when 'a defective said he found a narcotic administration kit in her purse. Miss Hansen said she was on her way to administer a coal iar product to a sick friend. and erected a statue made entirely of granite. But Love Never Dies. ' Love never dies, the Breton country folk say. No nose, even il it be made of granite, can withstand 300,000 love-stricken pin pricks a year for any length oi time, facts confirm. The beautiful granite features of Saint Guirec now have become the most ugly in all Brittany, and only live little holes remain. Moreover, it seems that the potency of their patron saint has decreased with his disappearing nose. For w.ant of a harder substance, church officials have decided to replace 'the saint's missing nose with another granite one. But they how have their doubts as to hov. long it will last. Moreover, they fear replacing it with something Former Rockwell Man Dies in Minneapolis ROCKWELL-- Word was received here Tuesday morning of :he death of John Mullaney of Vlinneapolis, a former Rockwell resident.
