HE'S HEAD MAN —AND LOOKS IT The Shake, one of the wealthiest men in Irak, is the. head of the Shammer tribe of 50,000 Bedouins. He stands B feet 8 inches tall, weighs 275 pounds, and I is very handsome, with black | eyes, black hair, and a black ( beard. Ages are seldom accurately remembered among the Be:loiiins, but. the Shake thinks lie must l:c j somewhere around 50 years eld. Last summer the twins told the Shake they would like to go Jive in his hnrcin for a while. They wanted to meet life three wives, they explained. So they started out. lo the harem, which is beyond the ncrtliern Tra!; city of Mosul. Besides the big central lent where Fatima, Zcnobia nnd Ko-v- kub (the wives) live, there abcut 40 other smaller tents clustered round about. It's a big community, and among the peo'.iic living there, apart, from Fattma's three children and others belonging to Kowkub and Zenobia. there are several sons anti daughters of Shake Asri). The rest, arc servants, shepherds and farmers. Among the children is the favorite daughter, who is 20. and is so modern that she has rcfus3d to marry. Of course .now she's distinctly passe. Nobody in link would marry an old woman of 20, it seems. "Jealousy?" said Helen Hoffman. "II doesn't exist there, as far as we could find out. It's pretty don-! gerous to be jealous. A jealo;:s j wife would pet divorced." | "It took us about two days to | win the friendship of Zenobi.i. Pit- \ lima and Kowkub," said one ol the twins. "Then it was jnsl like visiting with three girl friends, except of cotirje we were in the middle i:f a big plain and living in tent.s. We got to be very good friends." The wives just sit around all day. doing what the French c.ill "talking chiffons." Talk about that pretty dress, that nice way lo wear the hair, how pretty you' loo!: ,'o- day with thai ear-ring on. and so en. Bui lots about children, loo. Those wives weren't fat, despite the traditional idea that Moslems like fat ladies, the twins sa!3. Fatima was the youngest, niny'ae 25. The others were about 30. CHILDKIiN, ARE AIL-IMPORTANT They look much older than that, said the Iwins. It's all too true about how quickly .Arab women age. It's the children, apparently. Bui iicthlng is more important to i 3J2 W. Main a Bedouin woman than children.' If they don't finv'e them, lliey don't Read Ccurier Neu-s uani ads.
