Public Cools to Glamour Girls' Antics By ROSETTE HARGROVE NEA Staff Correspondent i PARIS - <NEA) - Three of the world's most famous glamour queens are finding out the hard way that all the world does not love a lover. Elizabeth Taylor, Edith Piaf and Brigitte Bardot recently have felt the cold blast of censure over their much publicized affairs of the ' heart. The trio is learning that there is nothing so fickle as the public; that even talented artists have (o watch their step. To defy tradition too consistently finally boomerangs; even in the liberal world of today. The marriage of "BB" to dashing Jacques Charrier not so long ago touched off many nasty comments. "One more to add to her list of victims," some people said. "A fine example she sets the younger' generation," was another comment heard in France. vSome days later Edith Piaf, completely recovered from two major operations in the U.S., landed at Orly Field here. The little "sparrow" (Piaf is argot, for sparrow), dewy-eyed and holding the hand of a tall, athletic young American, announced: "1 want you to meet my 'new happiness,' Douglas Davis. He is a painter to whom I am much indebted. He has given me a new interest in life." This happy state of affaire de coetir. too, was met only by acid and ironical comment. Over the past 15 years, Piaf has shed many a bitter tear over the snide remark in print and the smirk in public which followed her love affairs. Both Piaf and Bardot. in turn, are aware that at about the same time, Elizabeth Taylor was severely criticized for marrying Eddie Fisher so soon after the death of Mike Todd. They know that the beautiful "Liz" —'yesterday the world's sweetheart — was booed in the streets during her visit in Paris. Not so long ago at Saint Tropez. Riviera playground of the younger generation, Brigitte was obliged to flee from the taunts and insults of a crowd which had gathered outside the terrace of a restaurant where she was dining. Both she and Edith Piaf are considered "insatiable" so far as their love lives are concerned. And, like most French women, both are resentful of public intrusion into their private lives. "Why are people so hard on me?" she asked one of her intimates recently. "Other women fall in and o\it of love just as often as I do and nothing is ever said about those. Just because I am in the public eye, all my movements are dissected and commented up- TAYLOR: A shaky throne. PIAF: A 'new happiness.' BARDOT: Insatiable? needs the constant presence of a man she loves. Unlike Bardot, the little sparrow never knew anything of the comfort and security of a middle-class background, let alone its moral standards. Piaf and Bardot have one other trait in common. Both are generous, and if their public may look with disfavor upon their romantic escapades, at least their old loves remain tried and true friends, ready to comfort them when they feel lonely and frightened. Dedham Card Club Meets With Seidls' on. "My private life is nobody's business!" But the unkind comments which followed her marriage were an even greater surprise to her. It is beyond her understanding why people call her a man-eater. Edith Piaf's story is similar. She, too, cannot understand why her public, who obviously are crazy about her singing, should be so upset by her private life. Like Bardot. she apparently (Times Hnrald Newn Service) DEDHAM — Mrs. Ludwig Seidl entertained members of the Euchre Club at her home Tuesday evening.

And now, if you will pass the waste basket: Prior to World War II. 65 per cent of all drinking in the U.S. was done away from home — in cafes, night clubs, bars and country clubs. Last year, Americans bought about a billion-and-a-half bottles of distilled spirits. The most popular sizes were the pocket-shaped pint and half-pint—779 million bottles worth. Today, two out of every three drinks served are served at home — or at least not in cafes, night clubs, bars and country clubs. One of the biggest boons to distilled spirit sales, informed observers report, has been the burgeoning cocktail hour — burgeoned by women. Proof: Holland House {Time* H«r«ld, Carroll, I*.
