Miss Menard does not think too well ofjt, and sincerely hopes that her artistic performance--if local- rules .and regulations permit--will not be confused with this more or less indigenous American type of entertainment. Miss Menard, who is 25, has been starring in the Folies since 1950, when Josephine Baker stepped out of the cast. This has been long enough for the pretty brunette to acquire a very handsome mink coat from a top cou- turiere and date a passel of maharajahs and other highechelon visiting 'firemen, including Orson Welles. Job Hunting Shortly after the war ended, Yvonne got a. job as a nude man- hearsing and despairing of ever learning English.

One rainy day, on her way to look for another job, Yvonne trudged past the Big Elephant Hunt Underway WASHINGTON-One of the biggest elephant hunts in history is under way in southeast Africa. Three neighboring states--South Africa, Southern Rhodesia, and Bechuanaland--are cooperating t o j remove the menace of rogue herds that have terrorized f a r m e r s , tribesmen and cattle, and de stroyed homes.

From time to time, the situation becomes acute as the giant marauders trek in search of food water, or perhaps merely for a change. In 1951 and '52, hundreds of thirsty elephants stomped through Kenya on their way f r o m the drough-ridden interior toward the east-central coast. This year the British protectorate is being attacked from the opposite direction as the beasts flee from ivory hunters in sparsely settled coastal Somaliland. j Raid Farms Invading elephants in r e c en t' years have raided farms only a! few miles outside L o u r e n c o Marques, the capital of Portugal's · Mozambique on the southeast African shore. Farther south, the remnants of South Africa's prized Addo elephants, kept in a reservation near Port Elizabeth, have long felt thej wandering urge--to the detriment j of farmers' fields.
