Impeding Night Life
PARIS (AP) The mills of the
tax machine operated by Premier
I'oincare are grinding the nigh
life of Paris exceedingly thin
Even the celebrated Cafe de Paris
as well known In song and story
and the books of memoirs as Del
monico's and ChurchiHs and other
restaurants were in New York
has gtren up music and dancing
Newer and still higher taxes
that became effective on New
Year's Day snuffed out the supper
dancing there, as it did in many
lesser known places. If there Is
music after midnight, an extra
274 per cent must be added to all
the bills. Even before midnigh
tnere is, in ins better more ex
pensive places, a luxury tax and a
music tax and several other taxes
to pay. The new "wee small
nours tax leu too heavily on
customers' pocket books in placet
that depend upon an old clientele
ao they imposed a curfew on them
"Oh. sir," said the head-waiter
as the musicians picked up their
instrument cases and slipped away
at twelve Just the shank of the
evening, really "it's sad, isn't it?
Why it seems only yesterday be
fore the war when everybody
was singing 'If I were a man I'd
be, not President but he, whe
plays the violin in the band, in
the Cafe de Par-e-e-e. And now
he can't play after midnight."

The public, apparently, accepted
the bit of modern art' as an asy
lum product, or at least said
nothing. Friends of Ensor, how
ever, raised a fuss and denounced
Humorous critics had repeated
ly suggested there was a strong
similarity between some of the
new art cults and tbe untrained
"expressions" of the Insane but
the modernists saw no humor in
immediately after. Ererybody Is
invited to come.

The Crooks Ladies Aid society

and refreshments will be served
PARIS. (AP) Historic old
houses In narrow little streets 700
years old are being torn down, to
the Joy of sanitary experts and the
despair of lovers of old Paris.
Light, virtue and cleanliness
never flourished in the dark bous
es with cracked walls crazily lean
ing fronts and dungeon-like cel
lars. In the narrowest streets of
the old city, however, were born
the early systems of street light
ing, sweeping, policing, garbage
collecting and the national Opera.
Th erue de la Reynle was named
for an ancient Chief of Police, who
ordered the bourgeois of the dis
trict to maintain, light at night
fail and extinguish at dawn, can
dle lanterns at specified intervals.
De la Reynle also organized day
and night patrons of "archers,"
who traveled In squads because
iwords often flashed in those days.
The rue de Ventae close by was
the quarter of the usurers. In
the rue Brise-Mlche. famous be
cause of an old bakery there that
once supplied a nearby monastery,
there are the hooks to attach a
chain that barred the street on oc
casions in the days of Louis XI.
