Former Mrs. Astor, With Friend, Books Passage for Italy at Last Moment
The former Mrs. Madeleine Force Astor Dick, who was married to Enzo Fiermonte, Italian pugilist, more than a year ago, booked a last-minute passage Saturday on the Italian liner Roma, on which her husband was sailing for a visit in Italy.

Last August it was reported that Mrs. Fiermonte was seeking a divorce from her husband, after he had gone to Hollywood to take screen tests for the motion pictures and to begin training again for the ring, to which she objected.

Before he sailed on Saturday Mr. Fiermonte said he was going to Europe to visit his child by a former marriage. He divorced the child's mother just before his marriage to the former Mrs. Dick. At the same time a woman answering Mrs. Fiermonte's description was seen on board. Yesterday officials of the Italian Line verified the report that was Mrs. Fiermonte.

They said Mrs. Fiermonte was accompanied by a Mrs. Grace Strong, of this city and that both had presented their passports when the liner got out to sea. After they had paid for their passage they were assigned to Cabin 23 on A deck. Mr. Fiermonte's cabin is 154 on B deck.

Friends of the couple, who parted when Mr. Fiermonte went to Hollywood, were speculating as to whether a reconciliation would be effected on the voyage to Italy. Both enterprises undertaken by Fiermonte in Hollywood failed. He told friends he expected to open a night club here when he returns from Italy.
