Palm Beach Post, Thursday, December 9, 1976 D19 World-Renowned Ritz Hotel Definitely Staying in the Family if! PARIS (AP) - The Ritz, the Paris hotel synonymous with elegance for three-quarters of a century, "is like an ocean liner that never stops," Board Chairman Monique Ritz said. "Here, you're a name, not just a number," she said in an interview in the lobby of the hotel which boasts 430 employes for 250 guests, roughly a 2-1 ratio. Asked about rumors that the 209-room hotel on Place Vendome would be sold because of the death of her 84-year-old husband Charles in July, Mrs. Ritz said, "Never." "We did have two difficult years, just like everyone in the business, but that's over with and we're confident about the future," Mrs. Ritz, one of Europe's top women executives, said. She said the hotel, where prices range from 310 francs ($62) a day for a single to 2,000 francs ($400) a day for the six-room Imperial Suite, was just about full at the moment. Mrs. Ritz declined to say how much the hotel earned or what her own salary is. "I'm here every day, encountering every situation one can in such a hotel. But I couldn't do it without my team," she said of her 12-member managerial staff. Mrs. Ritz was responsible for redecorating the hotel four years ago while her husband was alive and setting up conference facilities for businessmen. However, she said no new projects are planned for the moment and that the hotel's conference room would remain limited to about 25 executives. "We're not competing with other hotels for that type of business," Mrs. Ritz said. '-;ir rtut rarn:i sr vrirs or m.un x: s 1 7" i J .' . . . uPl Ttitpnoto One of Florida's largest selections!

(AP) -Paiute Indians, told to move from land they thought was theirs, are being blocked from building on a new, sagebrush-covered site because some long-dead ancestors camped there. It's a "Catch 22" situation created as a result of a federal 1 aw barring certain construction grants until the archeological value of a site is determined. About 20 Paiute families are seeking federal grants totaling about $256,000, which would allow them to prepare the 40-acre site overlooking Aurora Creek, bring in utilities and build low-cost housing. The new land was deeded to the Bridgeport Indian Colony by the federal government two years ago. That followed the Indians' discovery in 1972 that they no longer owned the land where their ramshackle homes stand. The Indians were told they lost CALL NOW FOR APPOINTMENT 734-3000 to be a junkyard for ancestors of Paiutes who lived around the area 700 years ago or more. "This seems to have been a resource area, where they got materials for stone implements," he said. "What appears to be here is the manufacturing debris, the stuff left over from making their tools." There may have been artifacts of more value at one time "but the area has been picked over for years before we got here," Elston said. "I don't think anyone should really be blamed for this delay the Indians face," he said. "It's just one of those things." John Clonts of the Western Archeological Center in Tucson, Ariz., an arm of the National Park Service which is overseeing the survey work, agreed that chances are slim for any major historic significance. But he said the survey must be done under terms of federal law if the Indians hope to get the funds to build their new homes. ownership when the U.S. Senate refused to ratify an Indian treaty in 1851. The current owner is letting them stay in their homes until the bureaucratic wrinkle over archeological value can be ironed out. Hank Glazier, 33, reservation project director, said the new land has been picked over by treasure hunters for years. Bridgeport also has built a dump and sewage plant nearby, he said. The government red tape has been a problem he said, "but when you're dealing with the federal government, I guess you have to expect it. "The way things stand now, we probably won't be able to start any building until next summer or maybe 1978, providing we pass this archeological inspection," he said. Robert Elston of the Nevada Archeological Survey Office is checking the new land for its historic significance. He said there's not much and that the area literally appears DELRAY BEACH 1900 S.
