The mama-papa teams who owned and ran them, charming or exasperating tourists wilh ^ their kindness or crnbhincss, ...are selling out, some to real estate developers, others lo businesses or firms who have transformed the hotels into offices or 'apartment blocks. Since 1950, 178 small hotels have closed in the city, according to figures from (he National 'Tourist Office. No one is building anything of limited size to , : i;eplace them. It doesn't pay. The 'dying process would be a long and quiet one, hut the situation is underscored by the opening of three new hotels, all large, brimming wilh plastic and neon, and expensive. Paris' growing lack of interest in the traveler with a moderate income was' illustrated at Easter, a period when thousands of Europeans arrive for a long weekend. All the reasonably priced hotels were full and tourists "were dispatched into the countryside for rooms. Managers of de luxe liotels--the Plaza Athenee, for example-- admitleil'.they were running al only 50 jer cent capacity. "We'll admit that the little hotel with the girl who brought the croissants to your room ii on the way out," a government tourist official says. "But the fact .js there's'no'more person- nel available. You just can't lay put because something is youi- idea of charming. Why, a lot of those lillle hotels that closed were sordid little places really." The government reports more lhan 150,000 holel beds in Paris, hut other sources say only 5C,- 000 are government-approved and meant for tourists. The government also points to i program lo encourage the building of new hotels. It grants loans of up to 50 per cent on construction costs, and next year will probably facilitate the buying of land. But there is a big catch: Ihe hotel you build in Paris must have 100 or more rooms. Not many lilllc-holel owners can come up with enough cash lo move 'into this kind of investment. Of the' three big hotels, Lc Mcridien has 1,023 rooms, the P. L. M. has 812, and the Ciub Mediterranee 342. U.S. Bombers Fly 700 Strikes North of DMZ in 10 Days SAIGON (AP) -- In the 10- day period beginning April 20, American bombers flew 700 strikes north 'of the demilitarized none and destroyed or damaged more than 25fl North Vietnamese trucks, the U.S. Command announced': Sunday. In its latest periodic report, Ihe command also identified for the first lime the targets shelled by 7lh Fleet destroyers and cruisers along the North Vietnam coast. Fuel and supply depots, antiaircraft and coastal artillery sites, highways and communications facilities were among objectives, it said. No claims for hits or gunfire damage assesmenls were given by the command. Â·The command said other-tar- gels of air strikes" included Vorlh Vietnamese port facil '.ties and boats. "Sixteen storage buildings and warehouses were also destroyed," the command said 'Marginal weather conditions over much of the North havi reduced opportunities for mon complete bomb damage assess merit." American bombing of Nortl Vietnam was resumed April 6 one week after enemy troop launched an invasion of tin South. The air strikes against Nortl Vietnamese rear bases supporl ing the 32-day-old offensive ar continuing, the command sale But no air strikes above th 20fh parallel have taken plac since Ihe April 16 attacks in th Hanoi and Haiphong area, U.S military sources said.

For firms that report essivo profit margins in a fis- al year that isn't yet com- ilele, the commission required :uls in one of two ways.

In another economic development, General Motors Corp. an ounced in Detroit thai Us firsl- luarter profits hit a record $051 niliion. However, GM didn't follow he example of Ford Motor Co., which had cut prices on some 972-model cars and trucks after reporlng a big profit increase that boosted profit mar:ins to near ceiling levels. Grayson said he hopes firms hat see themselves nearing jrofit-margin ceilings wcn'l wait for the commission to order action. "Ford had a belter dea," he said. Price Commission rules say firms that raise prices can't let :he profit portion of each sales dollar go above the average for .he best two of the past three years. Profit margins generally rise when sales go up, as they lave been in the current business recovery. EXPAND FACILITIES . SAN MAUCOS, Tex.

Then look for a nol onion. And if you have (he mumps try trooping around the pig pen in a donkey's halter. That's Ihe kind of advice featured in an exhibition of old wives' remedies opened In London by the British Medical Association. A lot of Ihe quack so- lulions did as much harm as good, the doctors say, hut some contained at least the grain of a cure. "f think there's a lot of good in the old remedies when you strip Ihcm hare of the mumbo- jumbo," a medical association official said. Here's a sampling: If you have a sore throat, apply a roast potato lo your head and a half-tighlly drawn left sock or slocking lo your throal. Swallow and wait ... For an earache place a hot onion against the orifice. If you can't yet an onion, get a friend to blow In some tobacco smoke. Hub an eye stye wllh a black cat's tall. An ancient Irish cure for the mumps involved leading the patient around a pig pen by n donkey's lialler. The Irish also turned to the donkey to cure whooping cough.
