Paris, Feb. 5. Stage beauties and
artists' models disporting as nymphs
in a miniature lake of champagne,
was the outstanding feature -of a
banquet of Lucullan prodigality
about which all Paris is talking. .The
affair may give rise, to questions in
parliament as to whether sonic curb
cannot be placed on the licentious
ostentation of wealth in face of continent-wide
mueiy resulting from the
The banquet was given in his Ave
nue Du Bois De Boulogne home, by
V, Montasheff, the Armenian oil
magnate, and celebrated the sale by
the MontashefF group of all their vast
Caucasian oil field interests to a
British subsidiary of the Anglo-Persian
Oil companV, for a sum reported
to exceed 50,000.000.
The whole of this gigantic sum
went to MontashefF and one or two
associates, including A. LianosofT
and Paul Ash
The banquet was like a page out
of Arabian m'ghts. A conservative
estimate of its cost was $120,000. In
French money this represents the
extraordinary . total of 2,000,000
francs and is said to constitute a
world record for extravagance.
Don Oriental Robes. .,
Entering the mansion, guests were
met by turbaned Armenian servants
in heavy silk robes and conducted
to private apartments, where they
were inyited to divest themselves pi"
their evening dress and don Oriental
robes ornamented with designs
woven with golden thread and
studded with exquisitely cut gems.
Jeweled sandals were nut on their
feet and purple fezzes on their heads,)
transforming them from ordinary
Parisian society leaders into mystic
I knights, who might have stepped
! from an illustration of Boccacio's
tales. ' '
The women guests, who were
stage beauties. Rue dc LavPaix mari
nikins and models from the studios
of the Latin quarter, were taken to
different apartments and robed in
white Grecian gowns, leaving their
legs and feet bare. .
When they were properly cus
tomed and had indulged in perfumed
baths, the guesu were ushered into
the banquet halls, the walls" of which
had been covered with LaFrance
roses, so that not an inch of the tap
estries could be fccn.
Lake cf Champagne.
On the floor of the room was the
famous golden carpets, 18 yards long
by la wide, which Montasheff
brought from firkin and which is
reputedly worth $125,000. In the cen
ter of the large room was a eiant
table, 100 .feet wide, in the center of
which was a tank- lasnioned into the
shape of a mini?ture lake, wherein
two fountains were playing. ...
When the guests seated them
selves, they saw that the liquid
the "lake" was not water, but cham
pagne 6,500 gallons of it, which had
rested tranquilly in the bombarded
cellars of Rheims all ' through the
On the menu were humming birds
stuffed with caviar, filet of black
sea whale, ragout of Caucasian ram
and other dishes. Spiced wines such
as figured at the banquets of Caesar,
were served the guests in silver sob-
lcts, one of which was shared by
vacn guest ana ms partner.
With the serving of Egyptian
liqueurs, two of the women guests
are said to have plunged practically
unclothed into the tank of champagne.

WHERE TO FIND
the Big Features of

By ARTHUR SEARS HENN1NG.
Chicago Tribune-Omnhftj Br leased Wire.
Washington,1 Feb. 5. That the
United States is participating in any
armed opposition to soviet Russia
or hendering intercourse therewith,
is denied by Under Secretary of State
. Davis, in a letter to Alton B. Parker,
(answering charges by the League of
rree canons association io wnicn
Mr. Parker called the State depart
"llic insinuation in the last ques
tion that this government is secretly
committed to intervention in Russia
is gratuitous, i It has no basis what
soever in fact, and the implied
charge that such commitments efflist
is refuted by the well-known policy
of opposition to intervention main
tained for months preceding the de
cision, of ' the supreme war council
to send troops to Russia, by our ef
fort to reduce the joint intervention
to the smallest" scope, and to hold to
specifically defined and limited pur
poses." The league's charge that the
United States is maintaining a block
ade of American trade with Russia,
even extending to shipment of soap
and medical supplies, Mr. Davis
answers thus: ,
"Since the war trade board regula
tions in regard to trade with Russia
were amended on July 8, 1920, it is
not true that it has been our noHrv
'to refuse to permit relief to be sent
to soviet Russia. The only restric
tion maintained, by this government
on export trade with soviet Rjissia
is the restriction" on the exports of
munitions or commodities suscep
tible f immediate military use. For
the shipment of commodities under
this qualification, it is necessarv to
apply for special ' export licenses.
There is no restriction on the export
to Russia of 'medical supplies, soap
and the common necessities of life.'
No special licenses are needed, none
has been applied for.
"That relatively little of these
commodities has been sent is due to
purely commercial considerations.
Two different organizations have
been carrying on a noisy agitation
in thi matter and asserting ' that
they have been prevented by this
government, fro hisending medical
.supplies-, to, J3U!&iaX)M)aOTk bjewi
informed .that no snch obstacles x
ist to such shipments, but apparent
ly they have no funds to send sup
plies or to pay for their transport.
Soviets Raise Difficulties.
"The department of state has tak
en an intense and continual interest
iu the possibility of arranging lor
large scale relief work by strong and
reputable organizations. The difficul
ties whiclr have stood in the way of
any accomplishments in this matter
have been raised, not by this govern
ment, 'but by the Soviets, who can
not find in their theory of commun
ism, any" excuse for private philan
thropy, v s
"Representatives of the large' re
lief organizations, with the knowl
edge and approval of the department
of state, have visited the central so
viet authorities in Moscow in the
hope of establishing a modus viven
di for such Work, but with two ex
ceptions have been met by rebuff.?.
"The State department has taken
the position that it could not offi
cially encourage the entry o'nto soviet
territory, of American "relief workers
sdf long as thesoviet authorities con
tinue to hold as hostages American
citizens who are not accused of any
illegal activities, but its attitude to
wards relief workers has been identi
cal with that towards private busi
ness enterprises. Any American citi
zen who wishes to enter Russia on
his own responsibility and without
a passport can do so without any
hindrance from this governments The
'official! obstruction to feeding of
sick Russian children by Americans
has come not from this government,
but from the Soviets." 1
"In conformity with the order lift
ing the war trade boat restrictions
against trade with soviet Russia,"
said Mr. Davis, "if has been the pol
icy of this department to issue pass
ports to Americans wishing to enter
soviet Russia, good for the countries
of transit. The authors of this para
