PARIS SEES EXHIBIT OF AMERICAN ART; Museum Crowd Is So Great at Opening That View of the Display Is Impossible

The crowd of notables attending today's opening at the Jeu de Paume Museum in the Tuileries Gardens of the exhibition of "three centuries of American art" was so large that a few minutes after the gates opened it was difficult to get a view of the exhibits and it soon became impossible to circulate.
