A migrant couple from German have just opened a 25,000 pounds shoe factory in Osborne Park, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia's picturesque capital. They are Harry and Regina Majteles. They did not speak a word of English when they arrived in Australia nine years ago, so Mrs Majteles went to a technical college where she studied English, typewriting and bookkeeping. Mr Majteles gave up his job in a shoe factory three years ago and started making shoes in his own back-yard workshop. Now he employs 22 man and woman and his business is still expanding. Harry Majteles demonstrates a leather cutting machine in his recently opened 25,000 pounds shoe factory in Osborne Park, Western Australia
