It also has made some of them less likely to stay married if they're unhappy, adds Daniel M. Eisenberg, president of the Skip Tracers company, a private agency that looks for. missing persons. "Before the war," Eisenberg says, "we spent most of our time hunting A. W. O. L. husbands. Now a large part of our business is checking up on the background of men who have proposed marriage." "Women seern more cynical and less willing to believe what they want to believe,"; is the explanation of A. E. Linker, the firm's general manager. "If they're not satisfied with a suitor's account of himself, they hire us to check up. "Usually they act on the'basis of our report, but there was one red-haired widow who just smiled when we told her the man in the case had impersonated an officer, assumed a professional title, served a prison term and concealed a former" marriage. '"Oh, is that all?' she .said. 'I was afraid he might have been involved in _something really bad.' " Eisenberg says his operatives traced more than 600 wandering wives last year--"and before the war we were lucky it we had half a dozen a year." ; Marguerite Olson Engaged to Marry- MISS MARGUERITE OLSON Mr. and Mrs. Ernest N.
