Malraux honored
Gala Kennedy party
held for Frenchman
sampling of America's theater and
literary greats joined President
and Mrs. Kennedy at the White
House Friday night to honor visit
ing French Minister of Culture
Andre Malraux.
Kennedy quipped that the execu
tive mansion was "becoming a
sort of eating place for artists."
The gathering also included Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh, who on
May 11, 1927, made the first solo
flight across the Atlantic.
The brilliant affair ended today
at 1:20 a.m. setting a record as
the latest formal party held at the
White House since the coming of
the New Frontier.
The President circulated freely
among the artists. He impressed
many of them with his knowledge
of their latest book or play. Mrs.
Kennedy spent considerable time
chatting in fluent French with
The French minister, who is a
distinguished author and scholar
in his own right, said he was in
this country to present "the real
image of France."
Earlier in the day he said his
government would have no objec
tion to loaning Leonardo da Vin
ci's "Mona Lisa" to the National
Art Gallery here.
Friday night's party was simi
lar in tone to the affair given re
cently by the Kennedys for West
ern Hemisphere winners of the
Nobel Prize. While that party fea
tured mostly scientists, the guest
lirt for this one contained the
names of celebrated writers and
members of the performing arts.

The toasts at the dinner ran the
gamut from polities to art. But
Malraux, who speaks little Eng

he raised his glass to reply to
Kennedy's toast, which apparently
had not been interpreted for him,
he said in French:
