Thanksgiving Celebrated
By Americans in France


Conference on FULL SUPPORT?


(EDITOR'S NOTE, This is the third
n a series of dispatches on conditions
n post-war France by a former Uni-
versity student now studying at the
University of Paris).
(Special to The Daily)
PARIS, France, Nov. 28-(De-
layed) -America's Thanksgiving
Day invaded various corners of
France yesterday when many res-
olute Yankees sat down before aI
traditional fowl with the thoughtsI
of mother's pumpkin pie steaming
in, the backs of their minds.
At the rear of Madame Paul
Genette's restaurant on the rue
Regulation Is
University student-veterans who

Payments will automatically be

tion, Michigan Unit, Veterans Ad-
ministration, Guardian Building,

Irish playwright ennex Rob-
inson, director of the famous Ab-
bey Theatre of Dublin, will speak
on "Making a National Theatre,"
at 3 p.m. tomorrow in Rackhan
Lecture Hall.

Montsouris a glittering table was
laid last night. Fourteen Amer-
icans, from adozen states, ex-
claimed over the dainty spoons,
the flowers, the "real linen nap-
They were Madame Genette's
"demi-pensionnaires," accustomed
to the daily clatter of cutlery and
the shouts of "Deux potages, un
rosbit! Pardon, Monsier, pardon."
Give Thanks Together
Tonight France and America
were giving thanks together. All
the resources of the tiny restau-
rant had been marshalled for the
grand fete.
The French cuisine can be ele-
gant in any surroundings-the
poorest family always has its hors
d'oeuvres, followed by a meat
course, the legumes, the cheese
(rationed now), the dessert. There
is a logic of the palate, you learn
in France. Each dish, each flavor
in its place.
Chicken Instead
There was no turkey at Gen-
ette's last night, but there issued
forth from the little kitchen four-
teen plates of tender chicken,
daintily garnished with lettuce.
iraoition smiled from the chest-
nuts which followed the vege-
tables. Cooked with a sort of syrup,
they closely resembled sweet po-
Others File in
The American colony had come
early, and soon the other regular
customers began to file in from the
cold outdoors with wondering
glances at the assembly in the
back. "A farewell party" was no
doubt the general conclusion-
Madame Genette is used to them.
At last the "piece de resistance"
was brought in royally from the
kitchen for a preliminary inspec-
tion-an apple pie, made from
white flour and sugar gleaned
from someone's hoard of imported
Stateside rarities.
Informal Singing
Someone started "Carry Me
Back to Old Virginny," State pride
rang out in song, which descended
into confusion and rose againin
"Chevaliers de la Table Ronde"
(or Aupres de ma Blonde).
Accompanied by a great pound-
ing on tables, Monsier Genette
came away from the kitchen to
take his bow with his wife. In spite
of 3,000 miles, a shortage of all
varieties of foodstuffs, Thanks-
giving Day had been a great suc-
cess in the 14th arondissement.
