Former Mrs. Dick and Husband Still Await His Passport
ROME, Feb. 22 (AP)---Mrs. Madeline Force Astor Dick Fiermonte and her young husband sought solace tonight in beautiful old Tivoli from a day of disappointment at their failure to effect the return of the former pugilist's passport.

The couple motored alone from Rome and dined in a colorful restaurant unchanged since the days of the Renaissance. Afterward they returned to Rome, where they had to go their separate ways because Mr. Fiermonte's passport has been taken by Italian authorities.

Mrs. Fiermonte went to an expensive hotel while her husband went to the apartment of his brother-in-law. He said it was inadvisable for the couple to remain together in Rome until the passport had been returned.

Mr. Fiermonte indicated to a former sparring partner, to whom he gave 2,000 lire [about $170] for old times' sake, that some sort of final settlement would be made on his child by his first wife.
