    Background: AFTER A WEEK OF GLORIOUS SPRING WEATHER, TEMPERATURES ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA DROPPED SUDDENLY, AND, ON FEB. 25, IT WAS SHIVERING WINTER AGAIN. BUT, IN NICE, WHERE THOUSANDS CELEBRATED THE ANNUAL SPRING CARNIVAL, SPIRITS REMAINED UNDAMPED.

    GAILY DECORATED FLOATS CARRIED BEAUTIFUL GIRLS, MUSICIANS, AND OTHERS WEARING LARGE, GROTESQUE MASKS.

    THE TRADITIONAL BATTLE OF CONFETTI BETWEEN GIRLS ON THE FLOATS AND SPECTATORS PROVIDED GOOD EXERCISE IN UNSEASONAL WEATHER. BRITISH SINGER PETULA CLARK WAS THERE TO ENJOY THE FUN - AND TO TASTE A MOUTHFUL OF CONFETTI.
