Friends and relatives are in- vited to call. No gifts, by request. Women helping youngsters of Northern Ireland By JUDY KLEMESRUD New York Times Service NEW YORK Two very upper class British women one Roman Catholic, the other Protestant settled down on a sofa in a midtown Manhattan skyscraper this week and told of their efforts to help the children of strife torn Northern Ireland, where Catholics and Protestants hate one another. "These children have got to mix together, talk together, and say, 'I don't want to said the Catholic woman. "The terrible thing is that some of the children are beginn- ing to enjoy the added the Protestant woman. "They're being taught to hate." The Catholic woman was Guinevere Tilney, short and plum- pish, 58 years old, wife of a retired member of parliament from Liverpool and herself the former president of the National Council of Women of Great Britain. The Protestant was Patricia Fisher, tall and lean, 53 years old, herself a former member of parliament from England. The two women are co chairmen of Women Caring Trust, 1 2 year old, London based organization whose 500 women members have raised more than for projects aimed at helping the Roman Catholic and Protestant children of Northern Ireland get along with one another. The women hope to raise more money in this country, and the first leg of their two week fund raising effort began this week at the luncheon given in their honor at the Carnegie Cor- poration here. One of the women's major projects has been the financing of four gaily decorated "playbuses, converted double decker city buses that go into some of the worst bombed out sections of Belfast and other Ulster cities, to provide pre schoolers with a peaceful place to learn and play. The buses, which each serve 125 children a week, are out- fitted with slides, doll houses, painting tables and sand trays. Two trained "play leaders" are assigned to each bus. The purpose of the play buses, according to Lady Fisher, to provide very young children with some normal childhood experiences in places free of tension and anxiety." Several "more of the buses are being planned, she added in an interview. Other project? of Women Caring Trust, described by its co chairmen as "the only ecumenical group of its kind in Great Britain." are: "Mixed outings" bay trips for Catholic and Protestant youngsters to the Irish countryside and the seaside. Colony Holiday Centers, six summer camps that will open next summer in empty Ulster schools for children of both -religious faiths. A summer play project in 20 areas of Belfast for children aged 6-12. featuring tent like "inflatables" for children to climb and piay on. of money and a mini bus to the Corrymeela 'community, a nondenominational Ulster- organization that provides holidays for mothers and children of both faiths help- ing them to know and understand one another. Donations of toys, books and clothing at Christmas time for children of both faiths. One of the group's proposed projects, for which the two women hope to raise money in this country, is a year round children's center in Belfast, where Catholic and Protestant children can mix throughout the year. "The young people of Belfast can't meet each other." Lady Tilney said, "because the streets are literally closed down at night." Both women take a dim view of summer vacation programs that send Irish children to other countries, where they live with families of the same religious faiths. Last summer, 120 Belfast children '60 Catholics. 60 Protestants) took part in such a rotary sponsored program in Minnesota. Authorities worry about booming marriage rackets WASHINGTON (AP) United States authorities are worried about a booming racket in marriages purchased by poor aliens from those who prey upon their dreams of life in the U.S. Fraudulent marriage rackets are popping up with increasing frequency in the big cities harboring thousands of aliens who come to the U.S. illegally and live in daily fear of deportation. The scheme typically involves a racketeerscenting easy prey in the alien desperate to remain in the U.S. but understanding little of its language and less about its laws. The racketeer and the alien need one other party to complete the fraud: A U.S. citizen or legal resident alien willing to marry for money or at least go through the motions of a wedding ceremony. Wedded to a U.S. citizen or permanent legal immigrant, an alien almost automatically gains official permission to remain, no matter how he got into the country. William Wood, a criminal investigator for the immigration service, said some fraudulent marriages appear to be real until the alien spouse wins legal resident status, then quickly files for divorce. Marriage brokers charge an alien anywhere from to to arrange the wedding, he added. "Fraudulent marriage is one of the popular, growing and ex- pensive schemes to flout the immigration immigration service commissioner Leonard Chapman said in a recent speech. "Organized marriage rings are being uncovered monthly. We recently discovered in Miami a woman and her two daughters who had petitioned for entry into this country for 13 alien all from Haiti. Chapman also told of a racket in which one U.S. citizen had married 15 aliens from African countries. Wood said authorities are investigating another ring which has arranged at least 300 fake marriages. The immigration service maintains no complete statistics on prosecutions involving these marriage rackets. But Wood said it handled investigations of all kinds of immigration fraud in fiscal 1974, and offices in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago reported that 60 per cent to 70 per cent of all of their fraud cases involved sham marriages.

Rev. Paul Shaw officiated area 'Regent ideal for visitors pressed for time LONDON (CP) Shopping in the famed Regent Street area of London can provide everything a tourist desires- even if the inclination is just window-shopping. It's the ideal area for a visitor press- ed for time. First for the men. Off Re- gent is Savile Row, the heart of conservative tailoring. It's a short street, with the tailor- ing one would dare to call them in the large old houses. One of these is Hawkes of Savile Row. in business since 1771. The four-storey building was the original home of Lord Savile. Here everything is low- key. Even a tourist-inter- esting fact is only marked by a discreet plaque in the rear, sky-lighted room. Explorer David Livingstone's body rested here for two days be- fore his burial in Westminster Abbey 100 years ago. The house was then the map room of the Royal Geographical Society. Hawkes is a large estab- lishment. They have several Toronto and Montreal custom- ers who regularly telephone orders for new suits. On my THE BETTER HALF visit there was a double- decker Inverness cape on view. A top executive almost apologized: "They're popular with Americans." Hawkes are civil and mili- tary tailors. They dressed the Iron Duke and invented the shako. Another discreeet pla- que on the outside wall bears the word "by appointment to H. M. the Queen, military tailors." There are a number of such plaques on Savile Row. Hardy Amies has an elegant salon here and is "by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, dressmaker." Across the street is Henry Milbourne and Son, tailor, es- tablished 1769. Coles Bespoke Shirts is a relative newcomer, established only in 1878. Bes- poke is an English term mean- ing made to individual measurements. Cole's finds that most Eng- lishmen prefer the spread col- lars. "Grey is the most fash- ionable color this a clerk said. "Stripes are on their way out. especially bold ones." Also on Savile Row is a branch of Bally of Switzer- land. Featured in the windows By Barnes "Don't think of
