Art &Artists THE ART OF PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIC~ SKILL IS NOT ENOUGH

W

hen the French painter Louis Jacques Daguerre invented his little black box in 1838, everyone who ever wanted his portrait done breathed a sigh of relief. At long last there was a sure-fire way to attain an objective likeness. No longer did the sitter have to submit himself to the Vagaries of subj ective impressions and t~e unpredictable brushwork of the artist. The camera obscura put the traditional portrait painter out of work. When the highly successful American Portraitist Erastus Salisbury Field became acquainted with Daguerre's revolutionary invention through a friend Who had returned from Paris, he soon SWitched from portrait painting to big exotic landscapes with biblical connotations. He understood that the smaller anct cheaper images would become the future permanent record of society. Portrait painters who survive in our technological age are precious few. Those ~hat remain are, indeed, exceptional. And It is an open question whether the Titians and Tintorettos, the Rembrandts and Rubens would have blossomed forth the way they did had the magic box been

For Harry Lunn, Etienne Carjat's photo image of the poet Baudelaire exemplifies the perfect psychological aspect of a successful portrait.

invented before their time. The eye of the camera is anything but objective. It can distort and alter a shape, a line, a face by an infinitesimal tilt and the slightest variation of light. Once more we have come to recognize the human factor; the mastermind behind the camera.

The man who at has lo?k~d at.• bought and sold more F. por traJts to thd1s tdown than anyone else, N co 11 ector an ealer Harry Lunn, fr answers: "Psychological content.'' w Lunn contends, however, that a striking 01 photographic likeness communicating a ti, certain insight into character can onlY hi emerge if the subject is interesting. "If lo the vessel is empty-there is nothing to th discover.'' tu Interestingly, the interplay between tiJ the subject and his photographer, is je, cited by most of the renowned portrait a photographers as the chief secret of cc their success. In his effort to capture ca some aspect of his sitters' personality, in Fred Ward gets so wrapped up in con· re; versations with them that his wife and an partner feels like an intruder during those intimate sessions and stays awaY for fear of spo iling his concentration· UJ Ward, who has photographed AmericaJl A presidents and their familjes from JohJl ce Kennedy to Mrs. Carter is outright w1 curious about his subjects.

Ph For George de Vincent, technical sit rn, skill, although essential, is secondarY· In order to bring out the uniqueness of cal his subjects' inner life, he also en· ou courages them in conversation.

"I like to suggest a person's environment, a symbol of who the individual is and what he or she does", comments F red Maroon. Starting as an architect, Maroon has photographed everybody from Richard Nixon to Pablo Cassals With his cello. He strongly disapproves ~f theatrical lighting and romanticizat1on. Using existing light instead of highlights, he avoids making "people look plastic," and robbing them of their warmth and emotion. "Such pict~res lack poetry. They are not intlmate." Maroon also makes his subjects feel at home by drawing them into a conversation that frees them of selfconsciousness. "An approaching camera can instill terror in the hearts of industrial giants", he relates. "For that reason I try not to get too close and use an appropriate lens."

Design Far Living THE DREW JACKSON SOMERVILLES BOLQUETS OF QUIET UNDERSTAlEMENT

I. Tucked away in the nearby Maryland suburbs is the French chateau Candy and Jack Somerville call home. Instead of a staid drawing room, Mrs. Somerville likes a living room that measures up to its name. In the foreground is an arrangement of tulips, az.aleas and gerbers, with a painted version captured in an 18th Century still-life of lillies behind her. Amidst her Francophile furnishings, she injects a bit of diversion with a chrome and glass coffee table covered with tiny objects d'art and thick pictorial essays. Filmy and feminine, her red chiffon Holston from SaksJandel is set off with diamond drop earrings and bracelet designed by her husband. 2. The allurement of mauve, toned with grey, keynotes the living room with drapes of irridescent silk. The color was picked with the help of Interior Designer, Vada Morrell, to compliment two 18th century chinoiserie paintings on either side of the white marble mantle piece. At the far end of the room is a hand-carvedfruitwood etagere from the south of France, where apoleon mementoes rest along with rare books. In the center are two overstuffed sofas with rounded arms in a silk corded fabric that picks up the hint of pink. The mirror over the mantle is etched Venetian glass. In the foreground, Chinese porcelain antiques are grouped on a Louis XV writing table. Under foot is a rug designed by Mrs. Somerville with a border of pale lavender ribbons and musical instruments, based on historical motifs.

andy Somerville made the first major transition of her life at age seven when she switched first names. And again as a junior in college when she left behind budding career plans, got married and began raising a family of three sons instead. Her third major transition got under way last month as she launched a new business and traded in 20 years of charity work. Born Julia Elizabeth Crittendon, the Bethesda housewife turned entrepreneur, was the 11th generation to bear the family name as she grew up along Chicago's suburban Lake Shore . But neither she nor her parents thought the moniker fit, so the name was switched to Candace on her seventh birthday after the family patriarch died. Raised in the Chicago and New York area, she studied architecture at the University of Virginia before meeting Andrew Jackson (Jack) Somerville, a young swain who promptly proposed. The two were married and Jack was drafted during the Korean War. After his tour of duty, he resumed his studies at night school and took the helm of the family business. One of the old-line families in the Washington area, Somerville proudly relates how his relatives fled France in 1066 during the Norman conquest and settled in Scotland. His kin came to Baltimore and Washington around 1800,

with his great grandfather starting the family wholesale plumbing business in 1891. "We were married at a time when it was not fashionable to work," Mrs. Somer ille explains, seated in the French-style home she helped to design and decorate. "I wanted a career in television and I had a wonderful opportunity," says the still-stylishly coiffed ash blond grandmother. But she chose raising a family instead. Mrs. Somerville radiates with joy

3. Dinner is served in splendor in the Frenchinspired dining room. Guests sup from golden etched goblets at the fruit wood Regency refectory table with chairs in a Louis XV style with~ cane and a grey moire insert on the backs. Her antique commode and corner settee were part a five-piece salon set, with bisque figures of htl favorites, Napoleon and Josephine, resting on top (left side). The antique candlesticks of bront.e and marble with ormolu mounts highlight another of Mrs. Somerville's collectitd passions, tiny cherubs. The tinkling crystal chandelier, along with another in the circular stairwell, were purchased in France. Above tht antique provincial mantle, the Louis XV mirr01 sparkles in the light .

The restful room features bleached oak wood paneling, sandy beige moire draperies and neutral plush carpeting. Flowers in the foreground are sun-gold lilies and bold rust red gerbers ore in a woven str_aw pitcher. 5. Bright and airy, the garden room of antique whitewashed Victorian w1cker is m bloom year-round, regardless of what's happening outside. A visually tactile room, it abounds in a variety of surfaces, with a grey slate floor skirted with a woven straw rug and bare brick walls. Pictures on the wall are Haitian and impressionistic selections, with an old-fashioned propeller fan ready to whirl overhead. The geranium pillows on the sofa were "finds" at the Valentino showroom in Rome. Floral pieces enhance the springtime feeling embodied by the timeless room. ~'Low

MAATIN FEINSlEIN A NEW FIRST FOR AN EBULLIENT IMPRESMIO

w

hen the biography of Martin Feinstein is written (as it surely )ys must be one day), the year 1979 will stand out as a kind of watershed for the ebullient impresario. As he Will be the first to tell you, 1979 was spectacular in two ways: spectacularly bad and spectacularly good. Feinstein began that year as Kennedy ~enter's executive director of performIng ans, the post he had held for eight Years filled with exciting "firsts" and acclaim for his contributions to Washington's cultural life. In September, sudd~nly he was demoted to being simply director of opera and ballet. Word was

out that the "executive" post would not be refil1ed for "fiscal" reasons. There were gasps, sighs and plenty of speculation . While the town buzzed with rumors and counter-rumors, by year 's end, Manin Feinstein had been named general director of the Washington Opera and by mid-January, 1980, he had also been appointed president of the National Symphony Orchestra. Some say Feinstein couldn't get along with Roger Stevens-that even the enormous KenCen complex wasn't roomy enough for two stars of such magnitude. Chairman of the Board Stevens came to Washington in 1961 at the invitation of

Martin Feinstein and his two "bosses" pose in the KenCen's Hall of ations. Austin Kiplinger, Chairman of the Board for NSO and David Lloyd Kreeger, V.P. of the Washington Opera.

Dossier/June 19 0117

Shirley Temple Black, barely remembering her days as America's favorite little girl, was a popular Chief of Protocol during the Ford administration.

n retrospect the world seemed almost serene. Jerry Ford was in the White House. Inflation was descending from double digits. The hangover of the sixties was facling and the last echo of Watergate was clisintegrating into a whimper. It was June, 1975, and the Washington Dossier had burst on the Washington scene with a ringing manifesto that it was to be "A New Kind of Alternative Mectia." "Let the other media overindulge itself on misery, gorge on disaster.", the front page editorial read. "Our world is the Washington scene that operates quite independently from the End of era symbols abound in Washington. This one seemed to ring down the curtain on the Watergate trauma with Tip O'Neill embracing Judge John Sirica and House Judiciary Chairman Peter Rodino.

bureaucratic malaise. Our heroes and heroines are not the power figures of the moment, tomorrow's political ghosts, but the Princes and Princesses of a far more enduring milieu, half fantasy, half reality, but never boring. Above all, never boring." In a city where doomsayers are as endemic as air pollution, few gave us more than six路 months to live. We passed that milestone, but not without a struggle. Not only that, we survived the decade and it looks as though we could survive the century. So much for pessimists. We pride ourselves on being the chronicle of social life in the nation's capital,

a human comedy of our times in picture and text. We see ourselves as reporting a kind of side-bar to history and envision scholars of the future pouring over micro-filmed issues to find out how' people in the Capital really lived whell the world was half-mad. Indeed, we hadn't expected the Dossier to become a collector's item and are perpetually amazed when people tell u that they have saved every one of our first sixty issues. We've saved them as well and here路 with present a kind of cursory, overvie\1 of what each Washington year was all about in the pages of the Dossier.

c< More parties are given in Washington, D.C. than in any city of its size in the world, says social historian Hope Ridings Miller, and most people rarely turn a party down. This makes it a perfect town for creative hostesses like AlHson LaLand who bas made a career of giving parties. LaLand was one of Perle Mesta's protegees. She learned her party-giving skills at Mesta's tea table and is just as organized and perfection-oriented. A friend says: "Allison doesn't just give parties. She stages and produces them like plays." Five years ago LaLand launched herself on the lecture circuit speaking to small groups of women on the subject "Parties as an Art Form." Today she has graduated to a place on the Town Hall Celebrity Series talking with the Hkes of George PHmpton and Olivia de Havilland to audiences of up to 1,500 persons. She now gives about 20 lectures a year on the subject: "The Impact of White House Entertaining from the Washingtons to the Carters." She likes to remind listeners that President John Adams, hardly a frivolous man, once remarked: "One dinner is worth a hundred meetings." Guests still talk about the GeorgiaBrought-to-Maryland Hunt Breakfast, Allison staged at Cremona, a Patuxent River plantation she borrowed for a party saluting Chief of Protocol Marion 281June /9801 Dossier

Smoak and his wife Francie in 1974. Guests were feted with milk punches, garlic cheese grits, pheasant on hominy, scalloped oysters, beaten biscuits with smoked ham and fresh Georgia peach ice cream. All this was long before Carter. Allison, too, is a Georgian. Others remember fondly the southernstyle dinner dance she produced for then Attorney General Griffin Bell and his wife Mary at the City Tavern. Wearing a specially designed Scarlett O'Hara -like gown, LaLand Jed her guests to a dining room decorated with salmonclothed tables, and fan-shaped napkins exuding the sweet scent of gardenia. On the tables five-branch candelabra were circled with massed camellias and green smilax. For placecards, guests names were lettered in gold on real magnolia leaves. Allison is particularly proud of the parties she has staged in historic homes like Anchorage House in Alexandria or Dumbarton in Georgetown. At the latter, she put together a George-and-MarthaWashington dinner, complete with harpist to fete former Attorney General William Saxbe and his wife Dolly before he left to become Ambassador to India. On another occasion she divided the Federal City Club room into two with a garlanded white trellis for a garden dance. Tubs of shaved ice with readyContinued on Page 54

PMTIES ASANMTFORM My Top Ten How-To's by Allison LaLand I. Have a creative theme. Develop it with invitations, food, music and decorations. 2. Search out new places for your par· ties-your rec room, garage, swimming pool-or move the party to a restaurant or club. 3. Envision your party as a whole, com· plete work of art with a beginning, mid· die and planned ending. Don't let your party run down to nothingness. 4. Establish a rhythm. Move from room to room, table to table. 5. Plan the timing of each segment of the party so that it ends at its peak. Keep the party moving from one high point to another. 6. Use lighting to create a mood. Use fair· ly bright lights for cocktails and dim them progressively as the evening unfolds. 7. Add to the excitement of the party bY having an exchange of toasts. 8. Plan music even if it's just a record player. Position it where it can be heard. 9. Test your menu in advance . Have rehearsals with those serving even if they're your own children. 10. Once the party's started, give your guests your full attention. L__ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _~

DESIGNING FOR CHMil Y The gala black-tie preview party which opened the 1980 ASID show house, Boxwood, dazzled guests and left them full of bright new ideas to design. Created by 35 members of the Potomac chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers, Boxwood was designed specifically for the family who actually lives in the Chevy Chase home, the Paul Anthonys. The benefit showing was sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Montgomery County Unit. r. -

Despite the differences in specialties, taste and techniques of the participating designers, they worked this year (unlike other showhouses) to keep all areas of house compatible with one another. Co-chairing the preview gala were Mrs. James Meers, Stephen Jeffery and Mrs. Daniel Melnick, advisor. Executive chairmen were Mrs. Edwin Semans, Jr. and Mrs. Charles Shaffer, Jr., American Cancer Society; and Constance Mercer and G. Daniel Harben, Jr., ASID. Guests were rewarded with a choice buffet after a 30 room/area tour of Boxwood. -JEANNE RYAN

Others Were as thrilled as their wives with a handshake, a few words or a simple smile from the legendary movie prince. "Cary's as cheerful as he is handsome," remarked designer Howard 8aylin, in spite of the fact that he personally greeted over 1500 guests at this Year's American Cancer Society Ball. Elephants and monkeys dangled in tnid-air over vendors hawking popcorn and cotton candy to guests. A midnight breakfast followed a lavish evening buffet featuring Beef Wellington, mussels ~rovencal, lobster thermidor and arbecued ribs. This year, the ball netted $200,000, more than any single event the cancer society has raised anywhere in the country.

With a strong "spiritual" assist from the incomparable Father Gilbert Hartke and the marvelous directorial talent of James Waring, "Joseph" is now playing to packed houses at Ford's.

What makes the "Joseph" production unique is that it is almost totally local in its backers, its producers, its players and its director, all of whom are related to the CU gang.

Diplomats by the dozens flocked to bid farewell to the beloved Ambassador of Somalia and Mrs. Addou, leaving after 10 years residence to become Somalia's Minister of Finance. One of the most memorable of these goodbye gatherings was hosted by Orner Eissa, the Sudanese Ambassador and his wife, Muna, at their Sudanese residence on Woodland Drive. Any gathering of Africans is filled with lighthearted humor and hospitality and, as a sign of affection, Muna anointed each guest with a dab of Sandalwood, which is apparently the sensual national scent of the Sudan. Coincidentally, President Carter was entertaining one of the Sudan's neighbors, Anwar Sadat on the same evening in the White House. After countless farewell celebrations the Addous threw their own goodbye bash for friends at the Hyatt Regency ballroom.

AN UNSMOKABLE

PIPE

The guest of honor, Austrian Ambassador Karl Schober, an inveterate pipe smoker, got a glass pipe gift. You don't smoke it. You drink brandy from it. The gift was just one of the creative aspects of the elegant dinner given by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cerami at the F Street Club. The foreign affairs editor of Kiplinger Publications and his wife, Lisa brought together a stellar group seldom seen out-

side the diplomatic circuit; Treasury Secretary Bill Miller and Ariadne, Sen. and Mrs. Charles Percy, Ambassador and Mrs. John Tzounis of Greece, retired Lt. General and Mrs. Wallace Robinson, Bob and Peggy LeBaron, among others. The Ceramis seated attractive redhead Christina Clark, of Birch Bayh's Alcofuel Commission next to the guest of honor, which piqued everyone's curiosity. Sen . Frank Church's Idaho senatorial opponent Rep. Steven Symms and his wife were also among the guests. The congressman was reporting that his campaign was going well with recent polls showing him winning at this point. "We're going to topple him," he said. Robert LeBaron, who served Presidents from Wilson to Eisenhower was gloomy about the current state of affairs, although it did not dampen his 89 year old energy and spirit. In his toast, Cerami was glowing in his praise for the skilled Austrian diplomat, comparing him to another legendary Austrian figure, Metternich. As in most Washington parties these days, the criticism of the President's handling of foreign affairs was not muted.

party was a tongue in cheek tribute for "Alex's keeping to his own territory when he was single." . Once, like Rouse, a popular Washmgton bachelor, OAS Secretary General Orfila was considered among our town's most eligible personalities. Since his marriage to the beautiful Helga that life is a thing of the past. Nevertheless, the tribute brought out Washington's social establishment Which included the Bill Middendorfs, the Charlie Camaliers, True Davis, Judy Lewis, Diane Norris and Redskins owner, Jack Kent Cook, who, from the looks of his attentions to an attractive blonde lady, appeared to be in the throes of a new romance. Guests learned that the host is also a sw.ing era buff as he accompanied Glenn ~tiler and Benny Goodman recordings With his saxophone while others danced to . the velvety strains of his fantastic SWtng collection. An ebullient Deena ~lark showed her prowess at the 1-Iula," just as she did when she and Randy were on the USO circuit entertaining American servicemen.

~mmer festivities mean outdoor Imbibing and larger groups and, therefore, bulk buys. Buying liquor in bulk needn't be a Problem if you follow the advice of ~our friendly liquor store purveyor. ne can usually get a discount on bulk Purchases. "April May and June as w ' beII as September, 'October and Novemer are the big party months in Washington " th ' ~ays Bruce Bassin from MacArthur Ltquors. But summer months, like bl e clothes we wear, mean a lighter ~?d of liquors. a .summertime means vodka, gin and !( ltttle rum," says Manager Dave r Ushner of Magruders, 5618 Connec~CUt~ve., N .W. Butsurprise-Bacardi urn IS outselling Smirnoff Vodka now -though three times as much odka is now sold in the U.S. a Much more wine is being drunk now, . nd less liquor is being sold because of ~: Magruders is now selling as much t lne as liquor . More people are turning 0 red wines as they become more so-

S

phisticated, Mr. Kushner asserts. He expects the mix of white to red wines to be 65"7o/35% this summer. For a party, Dave Kushner plans on four to five people per fifth, or 20 people per ga ll on of gin, vodka, scotch whiskey and rum. A wedding party usually includes champagne. Bulk champagnes are not recommended; "They're too sweet for such an important event, a name brand means more.'' The French choices of Veuve Cliquot, Moet et Chandan, Piper-Heidsieck or Lanson, or less expensive domestic brands like Korbel, Taylor or Great Western are better bets." For a pool party, the ambience is casual. Jug wines like Inglenook and Souverain are good, and some, including San Martin, are vintage-dated. Italian wines are strong, and Spanish wines are real up-and-comers. White Sangria would be a perky addition to festivities, as well as a beer like Lite or Budweiser, and soft drinks. Magruders specializes in "discount party packages."

Watergate Wines and Beverages, 2544 Virginia Avenue, N.W., finds itself in the middle of some very interesting parties, and manager, Rip Packman notes that political parties are picking up again. "I always ask if the group is mainly Washington or visitors-Washingtonians stick mainly to scotch and vodka." He recommends liquor in quarts; although the one-half gallon size is cheaper, it is harder to handle. What the customer likes and wants to spend is Mr. Packman's first priority. He is recommending Hann's Cornell California Champagne ($7 .49) for wedding toasts and has had a lot of success with Cavalinho Portugal Rose, especially in the summer-it has nice light body and will go with anything ($3.59 a fifth). But for a sit-down dinner here is one man who would never serve jug wine, "jug wines are for picnics or everyday drinking-but your guests deserve better." Ed Tauber, owner of Continental Liquors, 1100 Vermont Ave., N. W. notes that rum is really picking up, especia1ly as a summer drink. "The rage started with Pina Coladas, but now people drink rum and tonics as well. But vodka is still the number one summer spirit." For a wedding toast, Mr. Tauber would recommend Codorniu, a Spanish Blanc de Blanc Brut Champagne under $7-a good value, and Korbel, the most popular quality California Champagne. For summer parties, the German wines are a little sweeter and taste good in the sun, or the California white jug wines-Mondavi or San Martin, are Ed's favorites. His formula for serving 100 people would be the following two choices for more formal ·or informal gatherings, figuring around two drinks per person:

MacArthur Beverages, 4877 MacArthur Blvd., N.W. supplies a great deal of liquid refreshment around town, either in tandem with the big catering houses, or individually to customers. Bruce Bassin believes in buying from a liquor store that gives you the best service, or one that will give you liquor on consignment. It's best to be over supplied-if you can get a store to take back the excess. The amount of liquor consumed depends on the hours of the party, and the younger the crowd, the more "white" the liquor will be, Bruce says. The more established the group, the more scotch will be consumed. Knowing that MacArthur's will take back the extra, Bruce would recommend as much as eight quarts of scotch, six vodka, and five quarts of bourbon for a party of I 00, as well as other liquors. He notes a lot of theme parties are being given at galleries, and recommends Guasti Chablis ($2.30) as a good white wine. The champagne he'd choose is Jacques Bonat ($3.49) or Moet et Chandan ($17 .99) for a special wedding. Eagle Wine and Cheese, 3345 "M" St., N.W. touts its house brands as a way to save money. They will take back any liquor or wine that is unopened. The most important thing to consider is your crowd's preference. Because Manager Barbara Day works closely with the catering division, she offers these hints for accompanying food. Eagle counts on 1/ 4 lb. hors d'oeuvres per person for a two hour party-but not at dinnertime. A predominance of men at your bash will mean more food and drink. Open bars also inspire more hunger than just wine, and if it is a buffet, a careful hostess should count on more than eight ounces of edibles per person. Barbara sends wines at the rate of2/ 1 white to red wines for the parties upon which she's been consulted, and recommends Los Hermanos or Sebastiani ines. She says your mixers will depend on which liquors you order. For diverse types of parties, she offers the following suggestions: a buffet dinner will inspire different choices, like wines, highballs, cocktails and liqueurs. A cocktail party or an after-dinner party will be more specific . But don't forget the sparkling waters for non-drinkers, she ays . She recommends Charles Donay pink or white champagne ($3.49) for weddings, and notes that a summer punch with champagne, brandy, Sauterne and ice will stretch the pocketbook.

made mint juleps greeted guests enter· ing through the Sheraton Carlton's garden. Guests dined and then moved to the other side of the trellis for cabaret and a Dixieland jazz band. Allison believes in never making guests go to another room to dance. She has also used the Women's Na· tiona! Democratic Club for a non· alcoholic salute to her longtime Georgia friend, Emily Dolvin (who happens to be Miz' Lillian's youngest sister) and evangelist Ruth Carter Stapleton. "Parties," says Allison, "chan~e with the changing times." Now she tS giving more serious "round-table discussion" brunches, lunches or din· ners, starring an Ambassador or hiS wife, a Senator or his wife, or an ad· ministration figure. For example, she recently held a round-table brunch for Nebraska Senator Ed Zorinsky and hiS wife Cece at Georgetown's City Tavern Club. Zorinsky heads the Western Hemisphere subcommittee of the Foreign Relations Committee and she had gathered the Ambassadors of the Dominican Republic, Chile, Argentina. Mexico, the John Jovas and Jim Rent· schler of the National Security Council· Guests cocktailed before a blazin8 fire with soft taped music in the background. She had cut seven srnall maps of the state of Nebraska in half and told the men to find their table part· ner by matching up their map-half. She calls this an "ice-breaker." Then she led guests next door to the round dining table seating 14. A1 dessert, she asked the men to move tWO seats to the left for a change of table mates, a trick she says she learned frolfl Perle Mesta. After introducing her guests, Allison brought on her star, asked the first question and threw the floor open for more. It works with the ladies too, says MS· LaLand. She entertained Mrs. Elekda8• wife of the Turkish Ambassador an~ Nouha Alhegelan, wife of the Saudi Arabian Ambassador similarly .

By Carol Cutler. 204 pp. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co. Cutler has painstakingly put almost 200 favorite recipes through her miraculous wringer to pare out excess fats and sugar. Now instead of 265 calories per serving, ethereal Grand Marnier souffle can be enjoyed for 82. The about-face in calories is accomplished by clever use of various substitu· tions; no egg yolks are found in the melange, and skim milk, orange juice and cornstarch are included. A serving of her chocolate souffle is only 81 calories! And Cutler doesn't add one speck of anything artificial. Only natural sugars are employed in her creations, no adulterates, no additives. Additionally, all recipes come with calorie counts of every ingredient, as well as the totals of the whole dish. The recipes span the world. Viennese crescents cozy up to French Clafouti aux Peches, and the Pumpkin Surprise-a seeded whole pumpkin baked with fruits inside and served with its pulp-is truly ingenious. This kind of imagination makes for a bounty of dessert ideas that one doesn't have to pay for the next day.

ed. Come toa t time the inimitable Presidential advi or, author and bon vivant Liz Carpenter, ro e to her feet with the ton gue-in-cheek comment, "to Scooter and Dale on their 25th and to their 26-year-old daughter Marta. " That toa t brought down the house. Another memorable 25th was "Jack" and Carey Miller's cocktail dinner dance at their handsome home in Potomac. (He is the lawyer who prosecuted Jimmy Hoffa .) Guests were asked to wear their wedding clothes, which brought out a variety of vintage couture including Mrs. Harvey Young in her mother-of-the-bride gown. Bazy Miller Tankersly, (former Vice President of the now defunct Times-Herald) turned up in her long antique ivory wedding gown, while Mr. and Mrs. Austin Kiplinger (of Newsletter fame) wore their wartime wedding suits. Kip's was a khaki aviator uniform complete with military cap, while Gogo wore a classic wide shouldered Adrian design. One feminine guest whose girth had grown fore and aft, arrived in her wedding nightgown. The current trend in 25th, 30th, 40th and 50th Anniversaries i a party taged by the couple' children. Old-guard Washingtonian Jack Neviu s, a lawyer who was formerly hairman of the D.C. City Council, and hi wife Sally Bet spent three month s planning a Winston-Salem pectacular for her parents, the Wilson Cuningham on their 50th. The cover of their sepia invitation, sent to 225 gue ts, bore the pictures of the bride and groom when they were first married, while the inside bid to dinner and dancing at Winston' Old Town lub was done in limerick. Guests signed in on a huge po ter picture of Libby uningham in wedding gown flanked by an accompanying blow-up of their wedding story as it appeared in the April 5th i ue of the 1930 Winston-Salem Journal. Jack Neviu s was Toa t Master. then all three Neviae led the orchestra and g ue t in serenading the Honoree with a Jack and Sally parody of "Old Gray Bonnet" which went: " Put on your new blue bonnet with the rosey posies on it, and we'll dance 'til break of day. Social Security might drop us, but there's nothin' gonna stop us on our Golden Wedding Day." Veteran party goer agree with socie-

"The y Anniver ary Song" waltz i SOP at each, he says, and the anniver ary Celebrant are traditionally the first >P and the last on the dance noor. â&#x20AC;˘ '' Anniver ary dance s , lik e er Debutante Ball , died out about the ns 1irne of the Viet Nam war," not es Devron, who feels they both are back 1 '' With a vengeance with the accent on 'ry, ne ' danceable big band sound .

With the Cost of Living Inue dex rising, which affect not only d. engraving but food prices, many hos tes ses are wary of outside assistance. This i a snare and a delusion, as most caterers are happy to Work within the budget earmarked for Party food. The handsome brunette widow of iournalist Gladstone Williams per~onally prefers black tie dance beginn1rtg at 10 p.m. because dancing symbolizes anniversaries, "guests look lllore handsome and thu have more fun ... and parking is so much easier at night. 1 have cut cocktail partie off my list. .. to me, they are si mply taboo," She say .
