W'hj don't jcm find out tor yourself and n! ftr I West Germany show that they are playing an increasing part in the lives of millions of Germans. There is big money in the sale of heartthrobs. More than 2000 "marriage advisory bureaus" are doing a flourishing business in Germany as go-betweens for the lonely, the bored or the inexperienced. They claim that over 50 per cent of their "introductions" end in wedding bells. BKiGEST factor in the spread of Germany's lonely hearts clubs has been the postwar uprooting of vast hordes of people. Flung together with strangers and cut off from friends and relations who have vanished behind the Iron Curtain, millions of men and women, many of them refugees from communism, have turned in the last eight years to advertising their loneliness as the only means of breaking down the barriers of convention. Out of their problem has grown a flourishing trade in which the bashful and modest are taught to describe themselves to the best advantage for an "advisory fee" of from $2 to $23 paid in cash to the "marriage advisers." Pages of "lonely hearts" ads appear in German newspapers daily each worded to catch the eye and tickle the curiosity of a member of the opposite sex lonely for companionship, UMlECOXSTRrCTED Nazis slant their lonely heart ads to . attract the man or woman who secretly longs for a return to the "good old days" of Hitler. These lonely Nazis pick their own papers for their ads "former S. S. man, blond, over six feet fall, aged 36, seeks Germanic maiden not over 22, who wishes to raise family for Fatherland. Must be fair-haired, athletic and docile: Write co 'Fatherland' Box ..." appeared in a Nazi ex-servicemen's paper recently. Most have simpler require- ments: "Lady, blonde, small, in good job, fond of art and nature, seeks acquaintanceship with a view to marriage with gentleman under 40." Or: "Gentleman, 25, stately appearance, in safe job, wishes to meet pretty girl for marriage purposes. Send picture with application. "Widow (lady), middle 50's, slim and well preserved, seeks marriage partner aged 55-60 in steady job. "Academician, steady job, sympathetic appearance, reliable character, wishes to become husband of charming, petite, Protestant lady age 32-40), not over five feet eight inches tall (if possible platinum blonde, blue-eyed, and should be born under signs of zodiac libra or aquarius) must have kind disposition, good education and be a first-class housewife." THOUSANDS of people who use Germany's new "lonely hearts" industry to make friends and marriage partners eventually emigrate overseas. Several of the marriage advisory bureaus have special departments dealing with prospective husband and wives living in other countries especially in Britain, United States. South America, South Africa and Australia. In some marriage bureaus tea-party meetings for "prospec-tives" are arranged under strict supervision. Illegal, but encouraged by some of the less reputable "lonely heart" clubs axe so-called "trial marriages" certified by a lawyer and witnessed by a member of, the "club" staff. Under these "contracts" the parties agree to separate without claiming on each other's property within a certain period, say three or six months, if the "trial marriage" turns out unsatisfactory. TO COMBAT these practices some of the lonely hearts clubs invite inspection by church organizations and encourage their members to discuss their plans with their local clergy. Despite the fact that there are 3.000,000 surplus women in Germany, at least as many men advertise for wives as do women seeking male mates. Statistics seem to show that German men suffer more than women from nerves and hesitancy over striking up new acquaintances.

Boys In Florence Learn Old Leather Craft BY MARIA.Y RAHL Special to The ,twt JTLORENCE, Italy, Nov. 7.-An old art is kept alive here these days at the Church of Santa Croce and the leather school adjoining it. There young Italian boys are taught the old craft that produces beautiful Florentine leather items, lland-some handbags are also fashioned at this monastery school, many for leading handbag houses in foreign cities. Boys who have finished their schooling which only takes them through the fifth grade-are hardly fitted for work or a career. They may attend the monastery school when they finish, however, and here they learn the very beautiful leather craft that is famous the world over. Some are better at certain phases of the craft than others and they are paid a nominal sum that helps the family in the support of the child.- THESE teen-age boys seem happy in their work and they cycle back to school after siesta time to resume work in the shop, in the office or helping a customer with his purchases. A rice custom is the gift of a straw bag to hold the little things you buy and can lose so easily ! : You can view some of the interesting phases of the work as boys exhibit very deftly how they cover a little wooden box with leather or decorate with gold any of the leather pieces that make such wonderful gifts for the tourist to take home. (They also make handsome Christmas gifts.) The assortment of eyeglass cases, cigaret holders, wallets, change purses, key ring holders and fashionable belts tempts you in beautiful hues. PERHAPS the most intriguing step in the process is placing the gold decoration on leather. When the leather article is ready for its decorative touch, a solution of egg white is applied to that area and allowed to dry. Then a filmy strip of gold is placed over this and a hot metal wheel looks' a little like a pie crust cutter here at home is rolled over the gold and its design becomes permanently affixed. (The strips of gold are so light they would fly away in the slightest breeze and so they are covered until the very moment they are applied.) Excess gold is brushed off and saved for future use. In a side room, row upon row of luscious leather handbags line the walls, hanging behind glass doors. These are the beautiful natural leathers in novel shoulderbag styles and handsome casual designs with interesting metal touches, saddle stiching and always Ihe beautiful leather interior! Multiple pockets inside should make for a well organized handbag. There are many lovely bags with Florentine touchrs in gold decorations that encrust the whole side of a handbag or just portions of it. These handbags are the type that enhance your winter woolens, your spring tweeds and summer linens. They never go out of style for they have a custom look that is always right' I Diamond necklace with one hundred and nineteen dazzling diamonds!
