English WomenOver30
Facing Spinsterhood
LONDON-(A)-The scientists who run the marriage society of
Great Britain have just gone over a waiting list of almost 6,000 per-
With a red pencil they crossed out the names of all women more
than 30 years old. They won't get a husband through the society and
the overwhelming probabilities are they will become old maids.
"IT MAY seem a brutal thing to have done," said Mayo Wingate,
the psychologist of the team of specialists that manage the marriage
"But these women have no chance, so what's the use. This
is a scientific business."
For a time at least, the organization which mates human beings
scientifically has closed the door to the woman over 30. There are ex-
ceptions of course, and the over-30 girl may find a husband. But the
mathematical chances in Britain are so small that the busy society has
ceased trying.
IT IS AN appalling thought," said Wingate. "But there is the sit-
uation-and we are here to look the facts in the face."
The society, a non-profit organization with the highest pro-
fessional backing, has just finished a survey which indicates that
the proportion of persons in United Kingdom seriously wishing
to get married is 100 men to 114 women.
"Those 14 extra women are hard to handle, and t1iey present a

ISA Weekend
International teamwork will
come into play when the title-
holding Turkish soccer team pits
its prowess against an interna-
tional all-star team at 2 p.m. Sat-
urday in South Ferry Field as
the opening event of a triple-fea-
ture weekend for foreign students.
This will be the Turks first con-
test since taking the title in the
International Student Associa-
tion soccer tournament.
THE TURKISH team triumphed
over the Chinese, Indian, Euro-
pean, and South American stu-
dent teams.
The all-star team, opposing
the Turks, will be composed of
two students each from France,
Holland, China, India, South
America, and one from the
United States.
Soccer competitions will yield

The first is by unusually intel-

realize that love is not the only
controlling factor, who submit

scientific advice.
The second approach is by per-
sons who have an impulse to mar-

which operates trains of his miniature railroad system. He built more than half the system from
inexpensive materials, working from blue prints supplied by railroads for duplicating their equip-

tunnels, over bridges and into a railway round house yard complete with turntable. Palmer can
control five or six trains running simultaneously.
