There were ports that a last minute attempt still was being made to give Franco the edge in the war before an international neutrality agreement were reached. The nazis' main objection to the newest British proposal asking cessation of aid to the Spanish fascists is that it came at a time when, they believed, the Madrid- Valencia government had a preponderance of fighting power.

S. in Their Search for Suitable Mate. NEW YORK--Every year two million hopeful American men and women, members of 400 "lonely hearts" clubs, spend $4,- OOO.OOQ in dues and $9,000,000 in postage in their search for a suitable mate, according to a national survey of the matrimonial agency business just completed by the American Magazine.

Women over fifty represent one of the major problems of every club. They clog the rolls, have an exalted opinion of their imporl- ance'to'men and never seem to realize that they have lost the charm which men demand in women. The average person who enrolls in a club is ready and willing to 'tell all' and it is from this that the danger of blackmail and swindle emanates. "Most of the women club members are ; school teachers, nurses, office workers and widows. Most of the marriages are between middle-aged people who look for companionship and'security rather than romance. The men are retired soldiers and sailors, clerks, accountants, rural doctors, farmers, engineers, widowers and those whose profession takes them to far-away places where · suitable mates are scarce, or non-existent," Crowd Watches Vfife Cremate Herself on Mate's Funeral Pyre LUCKNOW, India, (.P)--A huge crowd watched a Brahmin widow willingly burn to death Thursday on the funeral pyre of her husband to prove her wifely .excellence.
