Dec. 10, 1H2 He Buys Gag Gifts, She Goes Expensive Christmas shopping for Abbe Line ud Xavier Cugat is a matter ol extremes. : Abbe likes to go wild with impractical, extravagant gifts. Her bandleader husband specializes in «heap. comical gifts, adorned by bis well-known caricature: of the recipients. . But they think alike when it comes to Christmas cards. Cugat dreams up a comical design, and «fter it's printed. Abbe fills in with water color and paints the message, usually one of high hilarity. The cards go to special friends, but presents are confined to members of the family. The Cugats iwggest friends contribute to an Orphanage in Rome rather than jiving them personal gifts.

I w«nt ed to take him home, but we couldn't get him in the apartment and he wouldn't leave the stage entrance. So Cugie phoned for his mother, who led him away. "Cugie gave me the first animal I ever had, even if it wasn' an elephant. It was a white chi huahua. "But this Christmas Cugie real ly has his work cut oat for him You know I had ibt fur coats stolen from the apartment. The; weren't insured either. I wonder what he'll do about that?"
