Ogden Standard-Examiner (Newspaper) - March 6, 1927, Ogden, Utah THE OGDEN STANDARD-EXAMINER SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 6, 1927. Paris Restaurant to Charge Per Plate for Special Dinners With Entertainment English Novelist Says One Can Run a Business and a Baby at Same Time; German Prince's Party Bags 480 Rabbits in Two-Day Hunt; Use New Word For Suicide. PARTS. March (By The As- sociated thousand francs a din- ners limited to 40 covers, is whis- percd as a luxury in store for the too rich in Paris. The customers are to be "invited." "Of course, they will be for- eigners." say caustic commenters, in discussing this new stunt, 40 .are ..found to-pay this price tho new and exclusive restaurant; on the Champs Elysees, it. Is remarked, there certainly that many waiting outside to see the parade of those with-1 thousand-fi-a.no ap- petites. "And the curious on- lookers the more ridicu- lous of the says one. To justify the-'price the tentative announcement says the principal artists of theatres will.sing and dance and play for the ..little audience of 40, and, of course, that sort of entertainment is ex- pensive. Good-looking "gold diggers" in France are running afoul of an old French law that makes in- gratitude an adequate legal reason for reclaiming gifts. A real chateau on the banks of the Seine is the latest present to change hands when a beautiful dressmaker's model, Germalne Moutor-., tire dof her elderly hus- band as soon as the honeymoon was over. Monsieur Lefranc, the rich hus- band, got a divorce when Ger- maine grew cold. When he heard a younger and handsomer man was to get the chateau ho asked for it back. The place was bought by the two, jointly, before their marriage and given by deed to the bride. The court, when it learned the model's salary had been 175 francs a month, said she couldn't have bought half a chateau on that and decided the old law on Ingratitude applied to her case. Bequests likewise have been up- set in French courts for the same reason, so the "gold diggers" never are sure they can keep what they get unless they live up to the spi- rit of their bargains. Parisian authors are putting butter on their bread by tickling t.he vanity of people who buy their books. They have resurrected the once quite a paying industry. Alfred Machard and his wife, Ttuymonde Machard, both writers, arc carrying the practice to the extreme by writing and signing little dedications in their works in a boulevard store certain nights. The windows on these occasions are used to display the authors' works and pen in hand the two dedicators wait inside to scribble a. line for every purchaser. Once started, the crowd keeps coming ard the scheme is successful so far. In the old days the dedication to royalty or to a. person of im- portance brought" some reward, often a pe-nsion. Today tho sys- icm is a sales incentive and a publicity stunt. Good taste, elegance and social traditions have found three de- fenders in this age of the strange, Hie queer, the odd and the "mod- ern." "Tho Club of Three" is the or- Kanized knight-errant. It is head- ed by Andre de Fouquieres, usu- ally the social arbiter of Paris. He, also dictates men's fashions. do Fou- iiuiercs should ".'.inadvertently ap- pear wearing hte trousers inside out or with a new kind of pot- hat, the young bloods would feel- impelled to do the same. The dance is the first problem confronting the new group. Some of its eminent exponents, on the stage and in the ballroom, are to show the evolutions of Terpsichore from the classic to the Charles- ton. Society is waiting to learn whether- the show will result in thumbs down on the rnerican step or whether it will merely show how the dance ought to be danced. The two associates of de Fou- quires in the social enterprise are tie Count of Carlamont and Roger J. Lacor. The latter, not being a titled gentleman, is the adminis- trator and will do the work of ar- ranging the public sessions of the club. Architects studying at the gov- ernment's fine arts 'school .have the most expensive "free" educa- tion in France. There is room in the main build- ing for' only two of the architect- groups, organized into, The eleven others are provided with quarters in various' parts of Paris: 'The young builders have to take up a collection among them- selves, critics complain, to pay the light, heat and janitor bills, pro- vide the salary of their professor and furnish their own materials. They pay the same entrance fees as other fine arts students and are listed as setting "free" training, but like the drawing, painting and sculpture students, who furnish their own models, they are suffer- ing from the government's deter- mination to hold down expenses.
