are in the plutocratic class.
In spite of the alleged depression
and alleged unemployment condi

increasing in popularity and in fin

several persons prominent in busi

be different stages of gigoloism.
There are sometime gigolos, all-time

And here is a story the truth of

When he arrived In Palm Beach

her out to dances.

a gently flattering “line" which he
uses artistically. He dances like a

hefty, seem to float on and on and

This young man has no idea of
getting out of so lucrative a busi

Gigolos are not always young
men. Many are in their thirties and
forties. They are nimble of foot and
af wit, not hampered by any too
much pride, and are willing to live
ind let live at some woman's ex
pense. No one knows much about
their pasts. Some of them have un
ovely alliances with bootleggers and
sven with jewel thieves.
It seems that the entire matter
>f gigolos hinges on the economic
principle of demand and supply
that rules the world. It appears
that there are never enough danc
ing meo to supply the demand. Ami
j the demand is growing constantly,

and all that. No longer does the

a married woman has to pay for an
escort to take her about at night,
while her husband nods over the
now'spaper or reads detective stor
ies. Husbands, especially alter they
have borne the yoke for ten years
or more, are much more addicted
to bedroom slippers the radio Thou
beside me. But Thou has rebelled,
and hence the gigolo.
In Florida resorts the der.iie to go
hence at night is almost uncontioll
uble. There Is something in the at
mosphere that seems to light
strange fires in the hearts of ma
trons who had* thought that ro
mance was only something you cad
about. The night club orchestra, too
are responslbls for more than ihey
realise. Many a woman, with fitten
arches has rising spirits; and u »der
the thrill of the music's throb, all
unmindful of lieb 189 pounds, wants
to put a lose between her teeth,
snap of her fingers, and go tangoing
about to the teasing tempo of old
Madrid. A Palm Beach orchestra
has the power to bring back vividly
memories of things that never were.
Under the magic of the melody,
poignant pictures of old Spain

But what use have music and the
call of the fleshpots tn general if

man-less? Most of the gigolo-lng in
Florida Is harmless enough. The

And then there's the ^story about
the lonely elderly man who had
been taking a flapper about with
him to palaces of the dance- And
there was the lonely dowager who
had been paying a man some twen
ty years her Junior to act as cava

mances developed. All are now liv

older couple set the younger ones
up in business, mist like a fairy tale,
Isn't It? Only It happens to be true.
And then there’s the true story of
the English lord Let us call him
Lord Whoslt. He U said to be a re
mittance man, the black sheep of a
proud old British family. He is now
an old man, and of late had been
employed to sweep, out the batn
house of a casino near Miami Beach.
He lived there the year round; a
fine figure of man, well over six
feet, straight as an arrow, and pos
sessing a handsome set of whiskers
Which he wore parted In the middle.
Tourists, only knowing that he had
a title, which by the way Is genu
