New York, April 6. — Colette Francois, beautiful French music student, and her mama sail for France today, extravagant in their praise of Arthur Loew, millionaire theater magnate, and the American -courts. Colette claims Loew is the father of her 4-year-old child. She asked the supreme court to give her $100,000. Levy dismised Justice Aaron J. the suit. Reports of an out-of-court settlement, amounting to about $10,000 received some substantiation in hints of Colette's counsel, although denied [ by Loew's attorney, Nathan Burkan. Said Attorney H. Sandier, attorney for Colejtte: "Miss Francois and her mother sail today on the Champlain. They are well pleased and have the kindliest feelings toward Mr. Loew." ; The trial ended suddenly after Burkan had cross-examined thc big-eyed, well-poised French girl four hours without materially changing her story. In dismissing tho suit, Justice Levy said: i "This is a sad .case. Pathetic, in fact. These people — Colette and her mother — testified truthfully, but they had nq cause for action. They sued for seduction and breach of promise, but the testimony didn't bear this out, technically, j "They, declared that Loew seduced her on a promise of marriage, but they! also charged he was married. Under our Alneri- can law, a married man can't make a 'binding promise of marriage. Tfie Francois' evidence seems rather to suggest grounds for an assault Charge. I say this in view of thei fact that they swore the girl jwas plied with brandy and was under the age ot 17." - I . Colette was 'allegedly seduced in 1930, before! she was 17.

New -York, April 6. — Hus-i bands of the Ninth assembly district Republican club today organized their own relief investigation. They want to know about those diaphragm doggling and tummy vibrating lessons their wives have been receiving at the club twice weekly. The husbands, after a private meeting, decided to attend in a body next Friday when Leopold Badia, an unemployed actor on work relief, holds his class in diaphragm doggling. Badia's teaching of. doggTing and vibrating was understood to be a prelude to courses in dra-: matic expressidn and oratory. The purpose of the exercises is to teach deep and proper breathing. What interested the husbands, Lloyd Bu-ckman, who presided at the meeting, said, was the manner in which doggling was taught. One Ninth district matron explained tfie method. Badia stands before his class, almost 100 per cent feminine, and inhales a lung-full. Then he exhales. The class then is told to imitate while he goes down the line placing a hand on tummies to see tfiat his proteges are vibrating properly. Another of his methods is to have. a pupil hold his four-in-hand tie while he breathes. The tie vibrates, showing his -proficiency.
