Y. AIR MAIL PLAN OF FRENCHMEN Project 18-ton Aircraft to Cross Atlantic Ocean in 45 Hours Pari. Jan. 21. (TV-Fast forty -eight. hour postal service from Pari to New York, a SO rents a letter looks Ilka a solution of the, transatlantic air problem to the French aeronautic service. It Is calculated that ship now designed could operate profitably on that basis, a a commencement. Twenty government air bureaus, all over the world, It Is said, are working on long distance aerial service and France, like other countries, has its plans. An eighteen-ton airship, that would carry twelve passengers to New York for a $2,0(10 fare and freight t $8 a pound, is the proposal of government experts. It would cany 5.000 gallons of gasoline and mnke the trip by the Azores, with a slop also possible at the Bermudas. In 4.r) hours. Louis Blerlot. the first to fly across Ihe English channel, has fathered the idea of a giant passenger and freight plane that, would carry a motor-lifeboat that would be released automatically if the airship struck water. French airplane builders are confident transatlantic, flying will be on a commercial basis in ten years or so, but for the present they feel French aviation is ham-strung by the fact the army controls production and design, being the biggest customer but they look forward to a time when the army and navy will encourage the manufacture of the big, long distance, freight carrying fliers. THRIFTY FHENCIIMEN Those thrifty Frenchmen who carefully "recovered" the nnti-tuber- culosis stamps on letters and used jthem again are out of luck. The i government lias decided to cancel all stamps of the sort, even though ithey are not official. Evidence that In some cases stamps were being used three or four times led to the decision. Borne persons, thinking the new anti-tuberculosis stamps were an issue of the postofrice department, used them as regular stamps. In each rase the receiver of the letter paid the bill. FnF.NCI! AGAIN WELCOME The French are being welcomed bark into the stores where formerly foreigners from lands of gold money were pampered Customers. Ironical persons ate reminding the storekeepers that many of them a year ugo said they didn't rely on French trade lor their profit. "Times have changed," says Maurice Prnx, speaking for his countrymen in a newspaper article. 'The foreigners are gone or they find things expensive and the Frenchman who counts his sous again gets some attention." The disposition to bid for foregn-ers' trade became so marked that recently there was a bill before parliament to fax signs In foreign languages, as is done In Italy, This catering to foreign buyers caused many merrhanjs to put out signs In English and French and some even disregarded their own lnnguage entirely. PHK.FKR MOOD READING Good literature, it Is declared, Is preferred by French newspaper readers to the ordinary type of "cheap, highly spiced, factory-made," serial story. Tests and investigations by I,e Petit Provencal of Marseilles, one of the influential papers of France, have satisfied that newspaper that the rank and file of readers have better taste than was supposed. Most French newspapers run two serial stories and sometimes more, but these have rarely been taken from the classics. Lo Petit Provencal stirred up some religious agitation recently by announcing it would run "Andre Cornells." one of the best novels of Paul Bourget of the Academle Fran-calse. It was during this efTerves-cense that approval of worthwhile novels was so pronounced that the newspaper started questioning figures what Most of the people really thought.

The season In the capital started earlv with fancy dress balls and has at least a half dozen elaborate affairs to Its credit, some of them in gilded drawing rooms, some in country clubs or hotels and at least one which was quite fashionable, in the one time coal bins in the cellar where an oil heater replaced the old fashioned furnace, and where Miss Charlotte Chlldreth. one of Washington's most beautiful debutantes entertained. Mrs. James F. Curtis, formerly Laura Merriam, daughter of William R. Merriam, one time governor of Minunesota, was hostess at. another fancy dress dance, given for Miss Ionise Ppenccr and Miss Kathcrine Wilkins, two of the young buds, and another debutante. Miss F.velyn ; Walker, who was presented nt the! court of Queen Mary last senson and i made her debut here this winter, gave a barn dunce at the Wardman Park Saddle Club where nothing was omitted from the atmosphere. At the French Embassy on Feb. 6th, a second Empire- Ball will be given and guests have been asked to adhere closely to the fashion of the period of Napoleon III and the Empress Eugenie. The Hal Boheme of the Washington Arts Club with Its medlewl ntmnpshcre H1 enlist every branch of society on the night of January ?0th and artists are coming from even f.r awnv cities to all end. The inost. elaoorate preparations ever ! made for a ball In Washington, un-j less for the inauguration balls of i years past, are being made and so-I ciety folk have bought up all the boxes. Mrs. Conlldge was hostess at n mulcale at the White House Friday afternoon, the forerunner of several such events during Lent.

The court based Ua decision "on the fact that a manuscript must he regarded s production which the author holds secret, and is Inviolable like his thought or conscience until the moment he publishes It." The ruling arose from the attempt of a young Japanese poetess. Kidou Yamata. to seize a manuscript on the life of the Fourteenth Century poetess Komachl completed by the Belgian writer. Jean Nolesve. Miss Yamtita and M. Nolesve had begun wurk on the manuscript In Tuklo some years ago. M, Nolesve was transferred to the Belgian diplomatic service In Rome, and the tuliatKJlatlull Cased Tli Belgian, however, completed the Work and sent it to a Fans publisher. Then Miss Yamata attempted to seize It, but lost her case and had to pay her erstwhile collnborator one franc hs dumsgfS. - - OFFICIAL WILL SPLAK Hjllcy, Jan. Ul. Howard J.

BERLIN DANCER GETS PAY EVEN THOUGH CHUBBY - Hired at 85 Pounds, Fired at 160, Court Rules Salary Is Due Berlin, Jan. 21 A truly "weighty" question came up for decision before the lower cduit when Fraeu-letn Lil. ft dancing girl ot 17, brought suit ugainst the director of the troop Alio hud summarily discharged her for netting too hit.

"That." said the director of the troop, "is- no weight, for a dancer, who should never In any circumstances be heavier than PS pounds. Can v.-iur honor imagine my putting Fraeulcln Lu on the stsge in short ballet skirts?" The judge could not and agreed on principle that 166 pounds was a bit excessive for an idea! terp-vi- chorean artist. He felt obliged, how- ever, to inform the director that as unfortunately the so-cailecl "weight clause" now introduced In most contracts Willi lilm artists-had been omitted, therw was nothing fur It. but fur the director to put up with 1'iaeuleln Lu's somewhat substantial assistance In their nightly dancing act until the expiration uf her contract in six month.
