Hochstein to Be Headed by
Barrault Bondy Executive

February 10 - Recent movement of executives among the fashion industry's leading companies appears not to be ending anytime soon. Hochstein Shoes, Inc. , Swiss-based retailer and manufacturer of men's shoes, announced today that its chief executive officer, Gerard Hullot, will retire, and that Angelica Ferrara, current executive vice-president of Barrault Bondy, will take his place.

Experts say the succession represents a major upset within the industry, since Barrault Bondy, the Paris-based manufacturer, is one of Hochstein's leading competitors in the high-end shoe market.

Hullot's departure come as little surprise, however. He had publicly indicated his desire to retire in order to write a memoir of his long career in fashion, over thirty years of which were spent at Hochstein. Nevertheless, most experts had expected him to stay on until after November, when the company's winter collection is released.

Ferrara's move has generated much speculation about who will take her place at Barrault Bondy. Sources there indicate that current design director Marcel Hugo will be named the new executive vice president in a press release later this week.

173. What is the main topic of the article?
174. How does the article describe Mr. Hullot?

Crockett Center for Community Development
28 Freeney Avenue

May 16

Dathan Shaw, Urban Outreach Director Integral Harvest
Denver, CO 80210

Dear Mr. Shaw:

I enjoyed our meeting last week. I know of no other non-profit organization that performs such a vital service for all-natural agriculture as yours does, and I am enthusiastic about the prospect of the Crockett center working with Integral Harvest.

As you know, the Crockett Center has recently turned its attention to urban gardening. On this front, the main priorities are to expand existing community gardens in Austin and to found new ones in neighborhoods currently lacking them. Therefore, I would like to proceed with the gardening classes we discussed in our meeting, to be taught on-site by Integral Harvest representatives and attended by Austin community residents. If you will let me know your representatives' availability for teaching the classes and also the range of topics they will cover, I can prepare a class schedule and generate interest in it among residents. My assistant, Cindy Reed, will call you shortly for this information.

As for your proposal that Integral Harvest representatives demonstrate organic gardening to elementary school students here in Austin, since our meeting I have spoken with several school administrators. It seems that a number of the schools have gardening clubs, so students and teachers alike should make a receptive audience. Let us discuss this proposal further in our next meeting, which Ms. Reed will schedule.

I am sure that, if our two organizations work together, we can do much to promote urban gardening as a rewarding and healthful endeavor.

Yours sincerely,

Letitia Price

Historic Cinema Reopens

November 10 - After years of disuse, the historic Croton Theater in Hollywood will reopen as the new location of the Metropolitan Film Society's repertory cinema.

The Croton is one of the most architecturally significant cinemas in the country, according to society president Molly Harris. Built in 1925, it features a facade designed in the Art Deco style and an interior with ornate carvings and a 10-meter-high ceiling.

Since purchasing the building two years ago, the society has embarked on extensive renovations "We have restored the building to its former grandeur, " said Harris. "But we have also modernized it, from the plumbing all the way to the digital projectors. "

According to Harris, the society is moving because its original site on Vine Street was no longer large enough. "Our audience sizes have increased in recent years, and the Croton will allow us to screen classics and important new films in the setting they deserve. "

The Society's administrative offices have already moved to the new location, and its cinema schedule resumes on Saturday, December 3, with a selection of films by Jack Dodge, director of such classic westerns as A Calico Wedding Dress and Slow Train to Tucson.

For Harris, the choice of Dodge was crucial for the reopening. "When he moved to Hollywood as a young man, his first job was as a projectionist at this very cinema. Years later he premiered what is now his best-known film, Dust on the Horizon, here. He even ran the projector for old times' sake. Few people have heard of his connection to the Croton, but I think of it every time I step inside the building. "
