There's an old adage that generals do not good presidents make. That, of course, can be argued though I don't propose to argue it. I would rather say that General Grant's buckwheat cakes were the talk of the town. BY ROBERT J. MISCH NEW YORK (WNS) Everything's coming up politics, these days so why not food? Are cucumbers Republican? Is apple pie Democratic? I don't know, but the candidates do give me Ideas. Maybe you get different ones. Humphrey always looks as If he were sucking the Hollandalse off a spear of asparagus, and Nixon reminds me of a man who has bitten Into a bitter radish. Wallace? He's eating raw hamburger. That being the case (or not the case: no electioneering this side ol the polls), what better time than now to recall few "political" recipes of the Presidential winners of yesteryear? PRESIDENTIAL ZUCCHINI ALA L.B.J. (for6) 2 lbs. zucchini Vj cup chopped onion 2 tablespoons butter salt li pepper Slice zucchini. Put all Ingredients into a large saucepan. Stir. Cook over medium heat until zucchini is tender. By CELESTINE SIBLEY The longer I live the more respect I accumulate for people who can do things I can't do. Flower arranging, for instance. There was a time In my youth when I thought all flower arrangers were like those ladies in the Helen Hokinson cartoons exclusively earnest, humorless, with an abundance of time on their hands and an interest In mechanical detail and competition that overshadowed their Interest in flowers. Then I started looking at their arrangements. Every chance I got I popped into a flower show to see what the girls had done with a couple of roses and a spotted begonia leaf or an old magnolia burr and sprig of forsythia. Sumptuous. It all came back to a basic truth. You just can't beat knowing how. Much as I have touted freehanded treatment of flowers there's no denying Pretty soon, now, all the "alarms and excursions" will be over. A President will have been elected. No matter which one, the country will continue to exist! At least, when the shouting's over; you'll have a few good Presidential recipes if you tear out this piece!

My wads of zinnias and marigolds stuffed In a crock or an old cookie jar turned thrir faces all whichaway without looking like anything much. Whereas fewer of the same flowers carefully put together by a more knowledgeable hand come out looking like a painting of the season. So through the years I have picked up increased admiration and respect for those women, many of them self-trained, who are deft flower arrangers. And recently I have come to appreciate the fun they have gathering their material. There's not a whole lot of excitement In whacking off a bunch of flowers and sticking them in a vase, even If you have a flair for sticking them in a vase. But when you get to thinking about doing something a little special with a few flowers it can become an early morning adventure. The other morning I had an urge to fix a new bouquet for the breakfast table in one of the blue granite-ware cups we use for picnics. I would use blue straw placemats, I decided, white dishes and the red raffia napkin rings the children gave me for my birthday. Red geraniums would be fine in the blue cup but I hated to cut them, so I settled for a handful of red zinnias, which are at this season runty as to size and rusty as to leaf. They needed something with them so I headed for the woods looking. I finally decided on silver flowerets of rabbit tobacco but not before I had had a marvelous view of the sunrise over my neighbor's pasture, surprised a covey of quail taking a morning walk, heard a mockingbird launch a fresh aria to autumn and sampled the first wild persimmons of the season. The "arrangement" on the breakfast table pleased me well enough but it wouldn't have taken any prizes at a flower show.

At the risk of being led to the stockade, I will confess that my favorite President of ali time is T. Jefferson. What a man! Architect, designer, inventor, writer, statesman, gourmet! His table was American, but Influenced by his years In France, Holland, England, etc. Here Is his favorite Sunday morning dish.

Mrs. William Paley, and Anne Ford were there before it opened, buying, buying. Christina Ford came to the opening, but couldn't get a seat in the crush. The landslide success among this group is not the city pant suit, but the simple little belted jersey dress that can be worn under coats with a jewelled pin at the front. It has sleeves, a slightly fitted top, a hit of brass decoration, and an easy moving skirt, often pleated. The Spanish designers were high In this category, Pertegaz appealed to Mrs. Charles Engelhard, Mrs. E. F.

From a mass of "looks" that seemed impossible to pin down into anything of lasting significance, there suddenly came order and clarity. The Ladies and the Very Young stopped crisscrossing and went their separate ways, serenely. The reason was that the Ladies gave up fiddling around with miniskirts and maxl coats, skittish patterned tights and leather helmets and voted a straight ticket for designers of the Right. Couturiers Valentino, Mila Schon, Mme. Gres and Philippe Venrt came to New York and reaped a rich harvest of order? from ladies who had tried to get along with Cour-reges and I'ngaro last year.

Fragile blonde Elieth Roux, a former directrice of Dior In Paris, took a flyer at designing some of her own boutique collection. Her smash hit, bought by Jackie Kennedy and Mrs. Charles Engelhard among many others, is a play-of-light evening tunic of sequins and beads on chiffon, with silk pants or long narrow skirts of brocade or angora jersey. Philippe Venet, one of the calmest and most unruffled of the Paris couture through the storm of poster looks just past, can now count as converts several beauties whose recent getups have been rather weird. Mrs. Ahmet Ertegun had been muffling her aristocratic frame under Adolfo's maxl skirts and leather coats. She loved Venet's discreet black crepe dresses with soft skirts reaching Just to the kneecap. During her secret trousseau shopping Jackie ordered Venet's short black theater dress with long matching jacket heavily beaded in jet. Her sister-in-law, Mrs. Stephen Smith, ordered the same costume in white. No wonder they speak of "the Kennedy vote" as a single force in the presidential campaign. Doris Duke, a quiet undercover shopper, is an avowed Venet follower. She ordered his brown wool coat with a low flounce, his grey and gold metal brocade theatre costume and his black satin Russian shirt dress with a jeweled belt. Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson has bought her going-away wardrobe for the Inaugural period. As usual, Mollle Parnls has done a major part of her clothes, about eight outfits. One of the dresses Lady Bird Is already wearing at Washington luncheons and receptions is Mollle's thin black wool with a circular skirt, a short overblouse and a wide leopard belt.
