They bluntly advertise “man wanted” on the big city bill boards which fill the place here of American newspaper want ad sections. Ads like this: “Twenty-three year old girl, blond, medium-sized, blue-eyed, wants to spend weekends with wealthy businessman. Please forward offers to. X.” Or like this one: “I am alone. Good looking and well-shaped 25-year old girl wants to spend evenings with man not older than 30. Have own apartment.” The “love advertising” is a new idea but it’s spreading like wild fire. As the samples quoted show, the ads are shockingly frank. Mostly they make no mention of marriage. Men use the billboards, too. One advertised: “Fifty-one year old business man (looking much younger) travelling to Bavarian resort soon. Where is the good-looking girl, not older than 28, who wants to accompany me ?” Camel's Romance Now on Right Track LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28— (AP) —Hal (for Halitosis) and Sal are now very friendly. This is the happy report eman ating today from Griffith Park zoo, sponsor of a romance between Hal and a camel girl friend recently purchased for $1,500. The idea was to raise some little two-humpers to trade with other zoos. But when the camel couple was first introduced, Hal lumbered off, with Sal in pursuit, and cowered in a corner of his fenced yard. However, in his role of camel Cupid an appropriately named keeper, Melvin Love, and Sal’s charms finally broke down Hal’s resistance. Planes Thrown Against Weather In Western Areas New Snows Whip Across Midwest; Truman Allots Another $500,000 for Relief By The Associated Press More pianos and bulldozers were thrown into the battle of the Western blizzards Friday, but a new storm dealt rescue ef forts a severe set-back in some areas. The new snow, forerunner of another cold wave, whipped across Wyoming’, Nebraska, Eastern Kansas and Southeast South Dakota and on into Southeastern Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. It intensified the suffering of snow-stranded livestock and humans in the stricken western areas. President Truman alloted an other $500,000 for blizzard re lief during the day, boosting the amount of federal aid so far to $800,000. In Nebraska, one of the hardest hit blizzard states, the storm vir tually ice-locked the state. Twelve inches of snow fell in Omaha, with lesser amounts elsewhere. Scarce ly a road in the state was open. Brig. Gen. Guy N. Henninger, who is directing relief activities in Nebraska, said, “Human distress and misery are worse this morning than at any time since the storms began.’' In northern Nebraska, where the relief work had scarcely scratched the surface, much of the blizzard busting work had to start anew. The new storm stalled a single coach train, the Omaha-Sioux City train of the Chicago and Northwestern railroad. The fifth army headquarters in Chicago shipped 30 more bulldoz ers to Nebraska to augment 57 army bulldozers and 29 half-track weasels already at work in the Ne braska storm area. Ten more C-82 flying box cars joined the Nevada haylift, where feed has been dumped to stranded herds the last several days. Ranch ers predicted that two more days of aerial feeding by air force crews would see them over the hump in the present emergency. In Utah, the major "catastrophe area” where 1,200,000 sheep and cattle are snowbound, rising tem peratures cheered ranchers.

It all sounded, said tired police, like a scene from a film comedy of the twenties. Cabbie Harry Schaeffer got a call early this morning to an east side apartment house. When he arrived, somebody yelled, “We’ll be right out-turn on the meter.” The meter ticked along to $2, and nobody came out Schaeffer called police to find his fares. As the policemen accompanied Schaeffer into the apartment house, somebody dro$e off in the cab. A second later somebody drove off in the police car. While more police were summoned, one of the of ficers arrested a suspicious by stander. spotted his cab, four blocks away. The arrested bystander, the police, and Schaeffer rushed down and got it. Then they came back and arrested another man, who was with a young girl. The girl wandered away. Police started after her, and her companion made a dash to escape. The of ficers rushed back and recaptured him. The two men—who, witnesses said, answered the description of the persons who had driven off in the cab and the police car—were finally taken to jail. The police car was found later, on the west side of the river. Veterans Must Exchange Old Certificates Veterans who have old certifi cates of eligibility for G. I. Bill training are advised to exchange them immediately for a new-type certificate, if they are planning io enter school or job-training for the first time after January 1. Mr. Donald C. Schworer, Veter ans Administration representative at the University of Oregon, ex plained today that the out-dated certificates are all those issued be fore last September 1. Thousands of these which have never been, used are in the hands of Oregon veterans. Certificates may be exchanged in person or by mail. The exchange is necessary, Mr. Schworer said, because of a new registration meth od which the VA will employ af ter January 1. The new form enables the agen cy to verify an ex-GI's educational entitlement before he starts train ing, thus allowing prompter service on tuition and subsistence pay ments after his training is begun.
