  This lovely tray and platter only look like hand-painted ceramics from Marseille. They're actually light and durable, made of melamine. A nice gift for Mom for dinners on the back porch.   Magical macaroons Here's something to serve on that platter - traditional French-style macarons, baked daily at the Garces Trading Company commissary. They're some of the best we've sampled: the egg-white-almond-flour cookies crisp and light; the densely creamy fillings minty (in the green one)

Gaston Defferre, 75, a crusty and colorful veteran of the World War II resistance, longtime mayor of Marseille and France's senior left-wing politician, died yesterday. For more than three decades, Mr. Defferre ran France's toughest, most turbulent city like a patriarch presiding over an unruly family. His death occurred as his control over Marseille was beginning to unravel. On Monday night, Mr. Defferre lost a key vote at a Socialist Party meeting in Marseille. He went home at 1:30 a.m. and - apparently after suffering a stroke - took a fall that cracked his skull.

A sheepish look played across her face as she leaned forward, taking care to avoid dipping her blue-satin sleeve into her plate of sizzling mussels. It was the look that always precedes "The Denial. " And sure enough, out it came. It happens whenever the white locals talk about the immigrants who are packing the narrow streets across town. "I am not trying to be racist," declared Sandrine Begou, who makes a good living as an accountant. However, she said, "They are not nice to the French people.

WITH ALL EYES focused on the Phillies, it's understandable that some NBA news might slip through the cracks. That said, we thought you might like to know that Shaquille O'Neal is/was having trouble learning the Cavaliers' offense. "It is vital that I start to memorize the plays" O'Neal told Cleveland.com in a story posted recently. "I've been used to a certain system for 17 years so I have to work on that. I still have a few days before we start. " Actually, the Cavs host the Celtics in their season opener tomorrow night.

VILLIE-MORGON, France - The longtime problem of doping hit the Tour de France head on Tuesday when a French rider was arrested at his team hotel and suspended by his team. Police made their move on the Tour's first rest day in arresting Cofidis cyclist Remy Di Gregorio, with judicial officials saying two other people suspected of supplying the Frenchman with banned substances were also arrested - one along with the rider in Bourg-en-Bresse, and another in Marseille. The officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly as the investigation is ongoing.

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN WORK AND HOME Dutch bridge tender Piet van Schijndel loves his work so much, he plans to take it home with him - all 30 tons of it - when the bridge is taken out of service this week. The drawbridge - which Van Schijndel has winched up and down by hand for 20 years to allow river traffic through - is being replaced by one farther upstream. "I just think it's a beautiful bridge," Van Schijndel, 49, said Friday. "I've worked at this bridge for 20 years.

He was a man of culture, not of action. A Protestant Harvard graduate and an editor by trade, Varian Fry saw himself as an unlikely choice to help rescue an elite group of European refugees from the Nazis. "I'm not right for the job. All I know about being a secret agent . . . is what I've seen in the movies," he told the Emergency Rescue Committee, an American group formed to evacuate such celebrated figures as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst and Heinrich Mann. "But," Fry added, auspiciously, "if you can't find anyone else, I'll go. " There was no one else.

The ball glanced off Christophe Dugarry's head, just above his right ear, and flew into South Africa's net, just as Dugarry had intended. Instantly, a look of pure ecstacy came over his face. Mobbed by his teammates, the Frenchman closed his eyes tightly and looked as if he might even cry. This was the best moment so far in the World Cup. Dugarry, who had started on the bench and was only in the game because of another player's injury, scored the first of France's goals in his home stadium, Le Stade Velodrome, in front of an adoring crowd that had sung the French national anthem so loudly it must have been heard over in Montpellier.

People in this soccer-dazed nation remember exactly where they were on April 22. Huddled around telephones, listening to daylong busy signals, cursing their neighbors, the French, hosts of next month's World Cup. When the last 110,000 tickets went on sale that day, the organizing committee's switchboard was overwhelmed with 20 million calls from around Europe, with roughly 15 million originating in Britain. The Brits are outraged that 60 percent of World Cup tickets were sold to French residents, who aren't even that fond of soccer, while another 20 percent were sold to sponsors and tour operators.
