Leap Year Inspires Valentines To Set the Mood for Romance By ANNETTE GREEN NEW YORK (NEA)~"Ros«i are reo, violet* are blue, "Leap year's on, and I want You." If thU isn't a warning to the happy bachelor, he's apt to find himself a Valentine victim, who didn't have enough foresight to take to the hills while he still had time. Feminine inlative being what it is, a rccord-brealdn? number of Valentines are expected to lie sent this Feb. 14, and there's little doubt that all sorts of follow-through is being prodigiously planned. The 1952 Valentines, with their curtains of lace, tiny pressed flowers and scented satin puffs (all touches of the nostalgic "good old days") have definitely been created with the women in mind. And, frankly, they may prove to be too much for the stronger sex. If proof is necessary for the skeptics, take a look at history. The whole business o[ St. Valentine's Day started because of a young Roman priest who was to be Lesson-Business Meeting Conducted by Society Mrs. Dorothy Halfnrd yesterdiy directed the study lesson for the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the First Church of the Nnzarcne which met at the church.

Gay numbers such as this one often cost as much as Ihirfy dollars. Sine* frilly, fussy Valentines ol Ihe period 1MO-10 were usu ally made, by hand, a. fellow had to be definitely smitten before he undertook such a tasl- beheaded on Feb. 14, 270 A. D.. lor refusing to renounce Christianity. In prison, on the eve ol his execution, he wrote a farewell letter to console the jiiler's blind daughter, signing it "From Your Valentine." This act ot kindness to a little girl who had befriended him, established Valentine's Day as an occasion for exchanging gifts of friendship. The Romans, however, had been celebrating Feb. 15 for several centuries as the Feast if Lupercalia, dedicated to the pastoral gcd. Lu- pcrcus. and the goddess of love, Juno. As a part of the gay festivities, Ho man maidens placed their names in an urn set up in the public square, and courageous bachelors were allowed to draw one name each to determine their "blind dates" for the year. Eventually, because oi pressure from the Christian Church, which felt the Romans were up to no goorl, the two holidays were merged and thought of as an occasion for remembering old iriendihipj. Dan Cupid was not to be outdone. Sweetheart Valentines, began appearing in about the year HOC A. D. At first, lo elude vigilant fathers, they o'ere hidden in hollow trees that served as trysting places. . Usually these love tneraages were anonymous — for safety's sake. Sometimes thej' were left on a lovely lady's doorstep by a bashful suitor who Imccked and therj promptly ran away. Valentines had pretty rough going in the years that follower), but they always emerged victorious. Without sufficient evidence, it Is difficult to say whether the women or the men were responsible. In this year of (he q«e.5t, however, many a woman may wish thnl (he olden days, when Valentines came to be considered equivalent to a proposal of marriase, might be revived. There's little hope for this. Modern man, alas, has been given too much freedom. To protect the timid woman who ay feel reluctant to express her sentiments too freely, man;. 1 1952 Valentines "pop the question" In a whimsical way. After all, -you can overdo a good thing. But whether serious or casual, men who receive Valentines had better make it a point to read between the lines. There's where the trap may lie.
