MONDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1951 HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN BtTTHgVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER Hunting Season Open: Look Out Men, Gals Start 1952 Leap Year Already Xf YORK" /an___rnUn inen v __ ' NEW YORK. (3>>--The 1962 Year open season on the unmar ried male has already begun. It wa» launched with the usua any business of picking the ten v "most wanted men" in America— 5jp» and a flurry of expert advice on '^ how the average girl can pin the *uy of her own choice with a mat rlmonlal hammerlock. To an onlooker It would seem like It's going to be a rather confusing leap year. For there Is so far no agreement on who are the to" ter marital prospects. And as for' ho* . best to* snare a husband, the perts" contradict each other. One says, • "be aggressive." " One •t says, "be feminine and dependent. 1 Whom can a trusting young gir believe?, Two Lists Hit Desk Two lists of the ten most desirable bachelors have hit my desk —these lists come out with the same regularity 'that the swallows return to Caplstrano — and tlies add up to 20 men. Nobody made both lists.' These are the lucky ten named by Miss Ruth Marr, president of the Bachelor Girls of America: J Edgar Hoover, FBI chief, he's oil every year; Martin H. Kennelly. mayor of,Chicago; Elliott Lawrence bandleader; John Singling North the circus man; Bobby Thomson baseball hero; Montgomery Clift movie actor; Howard Hughes, industrialist, another hardy perennial; Ed Luckenbaeh, Jr.. shipping heir; Ben Grauer, radio commentator, Warren Magnuson, U.S. Senator, Another Ten Named But a poll • of 500 professional models here by Helen Praser, head of the Barbizon Modeling School named these ten: Kirlc Douglas, movie star; Henry Garrard, broadway actor; Rudolph Halley, television star and New York City Council President; Frank FarreU, Manhattan columnist; Milton Berle, another television figure; Steve Hannagan, who rose froi press agent to publicist; Wlnthrop Rockefeller, businessman; Bernard Baruch, statesman; Count Albrecht Goerfz, Industrial designer; and Joa DIMaggio, the retired Yankee Clipper. Bachelor Defined My dictionary defines a bachelor as "a man who has not married." but it may be a bit old-fashioned. A glance at these lists shows they have several widowers or grass widowers. However, in leap year the girls can be excused for stretching their definition a bit to cover every possible-target. • ,r^-^«!ir>vj*~:. Sometimes good, ^jprey;' Barney Baruch must weary of finding "his 'name on lists such as these. He's been included In all but "the.ten men most likely to succeed." And that Is one he doesn't have to worry about. How to Do It But how is • a gal who doesn't know these 20 blue-chip prospects going to nail her own favorite un. willing Joe? ; Miss Man says bachelors are frightened by. "female aggression and independence," because t threatens their own need to be master. ."If women ore to succeed In getting husbands," she adds, "ttiey must be feminine In every way an! show a dependent attitude towar< the men they seek. Give a man the reins and he will drive right up to the altar." But Miss Fraser says: "Every man'want to" get got To catch the man of 1952 be aggressive but pleasant." Maybe a mixture of the two theories might help, girls. Just throw your arms around the guy's neck—and hojd on until he gives up Tills has worked millions of times before. Japan Police Hunt Vandals Of Factories TOKYO Ifi—Police in Osaka are looking for leaders of a mob which Sunday damaged four factories producing material for the Allied occupation forces. Police said they suspected Korean Reds and the Japanese Communist party had organized the attacks. About 300 -Koreans went in groups to the plants, reported owned by other Koreans. The mob broke windows and damaged machinery. The newspaper Asahi said the mob shouted, "Don't make weapons which kill our compatriots." Japanese .factories produce such things as barbed wire, sewing machines and trucks for the allies.
