FIERMONTE TO BE BROKER

New York Times

Husband of Former Mrs. Astor Plans Career on Return Here
---
ROME, March 6 (AP)---Enzo Fiermonte said today the threatened trouble in Abyssinia, in which he may become involved as a soldier for Italy, brought him and his American wife more closely together than ever before.

The former pugilist's passport was retained by the authorities when he arrived from the United States. He had been estranged from his wife, Mrs. Madeline Force Astor Dick Fiermonte, but he indicated all is now well.

He said he came to Italy only to see his son by his first wife. Now he says he wants to get his papers back so that he may return to the United States with his wife.

"I am planning to enter the brokerage business there," he said. "I am through with the ring. It's not a good thing for a married man like me, and besides, they let me fight too much when I was too young." He said he expected to get his papers back "almost any day."
