WAITERS FAVOURED. MEN HEAR AND FORGET. LONDON, December 3. "Waitresses are admirable in teashops, but they do not agree with the atmosphere of banquets, because women talk too much," says the "Caterer," commenting on the fact that waitresses will be employed at the Institute of British Architects' dinner at the Guildhall, at which the Prince of Wales attended. The "Caterer" says it is part of the country's tradition to have waiters at any function of real importance. Ancient families would not dream of employing waitresses because men do not feel at ease before women, and are unable to speak freely. Waiters hear what you want and forget the rest, whereas 99 per cent of men diners do not trust waitresses' discretion, and have a dread lest talk heard at table will be repeated outside.
