jni^SJ3AY._JANUARY 30, 1930 ens TO SEE wins. IS REJLLI LI Former New Yorker Wh Runs American Night Club in Paris Takes Vacation By IIOKTKNSE MAUNDERS NEW YORK—For leu years. Jot Zelli has been operating (lie mo- lioinilar American night club. N< lo'jrlsl who makes any iireiense o: "doing Paris considers he has beer properly introduced to the cilj until he gees to Zelli's, sits In the "Royal nox." submits to n skctcl it: the solclcn gnllory, waicbcs ni impromptu show with Broadtvaj headlines doing their stuff for fun, and drinks some of Joe's hcncst-to-goodncss champagne. In the tourist season, which non last-s nearly 355 days. Joe keeps open house for Americans, and ; .ie probably meets more of lliem than any other person in Europe. Then, ivlien ho eels u vacation, what decs he do? Why, he comes right over to America, to meet, Americans, and to go 10 night clubs. The hiking mailman has nothing on him. An International Shoirmai: However, this Ls his first visit here in fifteen years. Prohibition America is new to him. though the imbibing American is -not. Zelli is an internationalist—an Italian by birth, an American by adoption, and a resident of Paris. He is a born restaurateur and a showman. He could have retired years ago on the money lie has made. IH:{ not, to hare a night elub would make him as unhappy as an actor without a public. He has had clubs in London. Paris New York, and even in Cape Town. Africa. Before Uie World War he conducted a small cabaret in the Broadway section of New- York, which was just becoming ia- mous when he joined the Italian army at the outbreak af the war and went to Europe. Immwlis't'iy after, the armistice; 7,elli opened a night club in Tours, France, lor the accommodation of a number of American officers who were stationed there, intending to return to America, and resume his club there. Profits From U. S. Prohibition About this time, the news was broken to him that America had gone dry. Joe, naive fellow, believed this, so he went to Paris instead, figuring that there were lots of Americans there, and that they would appreciate a night club— something for which the real Parisian lias no particular use. So he 'opened Zelli's h! Paris, and - it clicked so hard from- tl». start that he has never iiad the time fo get back to this country, even for a visit. "I am supported by Americans," he said frankly. "I should have closed the first week if I had depended on French patronage. I would prefer to be in America but really I couldn't serve my guests noison. Honestly. I could not; nor could I drink it myself." Poison is what our bootleg li- o.uor tastes like to Zelli, who is a ccimoisseur of vintage wines and champagnes, but has no taste for hard liquor. He doesn't even sell the latter. "But the drinking water is the best r have ever tasted." He became ecstatic at the sight ol a goblet of it. "K'o bottled waters in Europe compare with what gushes right out of the taps here. It is as good as champagne! And it is free! What a country!"' Likes Our Nifflit Clubs Except for the liquor, lie thinks American night clubs arc great, that the entertainment is superb, and the women—well, he can't fay enough far (heir beauty and liicir gaiety. It is a great disappointment to him that he cannot see Tex Guinan !n action, because he has heard so much of her "Hello Sucker" and the informality of her club. fiis technique is quite different. Zelli is a magnificent host who meets all his guests with a bow and a flourish, and orders them to be shown to the "Royal Box." Every box is a "royal box." but Ihe stranger does not know that, and afterward he thinks it a good joke. If Paris itself has a way of making the tourist feel like an outsider and a stranger. Mil dispels that feeling. He restores a sense of importance immediately. Tie understands the American perfectly, and knows he cnn'i stand not being no;iced, and that though he may be writing home about what a swell time he is having, and how wild Paris U, he is apt to be a lonely soul, longing to hear hlr own language spoken by congenial countrymen. That's where Zeiii comes in. He provides a thoroughly American place, with jusi enough French atmosphere to add a flavor—but not to deceive a Frenchman. He was the first restaurateur to realize that Americans like pretty girls in cabaret numbers, and that the' French type of show girl was too mature for their taste. He made it iwpular for American actors and dancers to appear in his club as guests ar.d do their stuff—by request. -I can crack- jokes only in English." he satd. "because if you learn them In that language, they never lit any other. And of course, my program K in English, because It is for Americans." ZelU has two tons, who rarely come to his club. Significant!}' enough, they arc being trained, to become bankers. This winter there are three versions of "Zelll's" on Broadway, re- Likes American Water Because he believed what he heard about prohibition coming I 0 the United States ten years ago. Joe ijelli, shown above, made a fortune For he went lo Ports and founded his celebrated night club. Home for a vacation, he calk the liquor "noison," but the water "marvelous." Correct Bidding and Play Are Not Always' Successful The old saying that "To bs a Bridge expert you must'know the conventions and when to tusak them" was proven trua again in .he eleventh of Milton c. Work's Radio Bridge Games, broadcast Tuesday from Station KLCN. with Mrs. Ella G. Pimm, of Montreal, Canada, Mrs. William C. Ryan of San Antonio. Texas, Shcjiarcl C. Barclay of New York, and E. J. Tobin of Chicago as players. The cards were: Mrs. i'inini, dealer, South' Spades, A, 5, 4, 'J; iearts, 4 2; Diamonds. A. K, C, 4; Clubs, A. K, 5. Mr. Barclay, West: Spades, K, J, 9, 7, 6; Hearts, Q. a. 7; Diamonds, 9; Clubs, Q, D, 8, 1, Mr. Tobin, North: Spades, &• Hearts, A. K, 10. 9, 3; Diamonds 7, 5. 2; Clubs, 1, 6, 3. 2. Mrb. Ryan. Jast: Spades, Q, 10, 2; Hearts, J. 6, 5; Diamonds, Q, J, 10, 8, 3; Clubs. J, 10. Mrs. Pimm, South, opened tin Auction with one No Trump, prcfer- ine it to her alternative bid of one diamond because with five sure ricks in her hand, and only four cards in the Diamond suit, the on? diamond bid would not have por- rayed the strength of her, han-J idequately. Mr. Bradley, West, passqd. Mr. Tobin, North, said two Hearts ... a bid thnl was neither jijfjcue nor a \varning,-but merely in indication (o his partner thnt ic hc!d a five-card suit ami strength for the" No Trurup. In a case like this. Die strength may le either in the suit, named, as in his instance, or on the side, or in both places; and such a bid urges irebid of the No Trump if the Jo Trumpet lacks support for tin najor suit. The fact, that North's land contained a singleton wits also an additional argument in favor of the suit-bid. After North's iro-Hcart call, Mrs. Ryan, Eas;, passed. Mrs. Pimm. South, delighted with jrceiuccd in shows dealing with "rench life to give authenticity. *he scene has been used ever so many times in pictures. After lie nstalled his system of table telephones so that .guests could call acii other from one (able to an- Jther, liis place \vas Jilmeu as a icivs picture and slioiva all over he country. Jce hns teen pointed o;il at the lev; York theaters and lionized, at he night clubs. He expects to go we to Hollyivood, and possibly lo ppenr personally as the proprietor n a forthcoming movie that cen- ers about his place. her ' partner's Heart-Lid, which took care of her only No Trump weakness, wen! lo two No Trumps which held the bid. To the first trick Mr. Barclay West, led the 7 of Spades, ttie fpurth-best of his longest, aiH strongest, suit, Mr. Tobin spread his hand for Dummy, and Declarer, Mrs. Pimm, played from ii the singleton B of Spades. Mrs. Kyan, East, knew Irom ihe fourth-best lend Oisitie (lie Kule of Eleven) that there were four Spades higher than the 7 which wcje not hclil by her partner. She saw three of the Jour ... the 8 ol Spades in Dummy, and ;iie Queen and 10 in her own hand . . so she knew Declarer had the ulher. Altliout'li it was probable iliat Declarer's one. card higher than Ihe 1 was eillici (lie Ace or King, there wns a chance that it was lhe Jack; .so, to prevent any possibility of the trick being won with a Jack, ?.lrs. Ryan played her Queen. Mrs. Pimm, the Declarer, could not tell whether the adverse eight Spades were evenly or unevenly divided between the two adverse hands; hut she decided to hold up her only stopper in the suit In an endeavor to px-mu~,l East, if ihat hcnd had less than four. So to the firs', trick Mrs. Pimm played the Trey of Spades. To Irirt: two, MJ-J. Ryan, East returned the Spades, leading the 10, (he higher of her two remaining cards of the suit. Airs. S'imm played tile 4; Mr. Barclay. West, the Jack; and Dummy discarded the Deuce of Diamonds. Mr. Barclay played his Jac-c because he was not certain that his partner had annlher Spade, although he thought it unlikely that Declared had held Jive originally as with five Spades in lief hand and no Heart, strength, she hardly would have bid an initial No Trump. But to make sure that Spades would be continued, Mr. Barclay thought it best to overtake his partner's 10. To the next (tick Mr. Barclay led his C of Spades, to show his partner Ilia', his fourth-best wr.s not his lowest, nnd that he had at least five originally. Dummy, North, discaidei the 5 of Diamonds; Mrs. Ryan, East, played the Deuce of Spades; and Mrs. Pimm, Southi won witii the Ace. Now in the lead. Declarer could count seven sure tricks. -The Heart suit seemed to olfer the best ciiancc of giving her Hie two more tricks ;he needed for game. So to trick ^NERVINE All Wrought Up Over Nothing Didn't sleep last night; too much work; the children are fretful; the Boss is cranky; Mrs. DeVere didn't invite you to her party. Ordinarily you don't mind any of those things, but today they are simply unbearable. You are nervous, that's why. Did you ever try Dr. Miles' Nervine? Just two teaspoonfuls in a half glass of water will quiet your over-taxed nerves and bring you a feeling of calm and peace.

Dili Mr. liiirclay's own Queen would then fall on one qf Dunmiy's liluh Heurls nurt Declarer wo::ld make four Heart tricks, which probably would ulve her game, So Mr, Uurchy departed from the convention "second hand low" and maile the unusual second hand play of hU, Queen of Hearts. In making ihls iilay lie also look inlo cous!der.,tion the probability, as shown by tlic bidding that Declarer hud only ui o Hearts If she Irad had only a worthless singleton, she would uy. huvo bid the initial No Trump; it S ]| C hud had three Hearts, the would have passed her partner's Heart, bid ' Declarer could not afford to lei Mr. Barclay's Cjueen viiu, because he would then cash !:!•- t»o v<,i[i\>. lished Spades and stive same- therefore she played Dummy's liiui; ol Hcails.
