We planned the party (or Thursday night. First, however, Roger consulted Weather. No rarn predicted. August is usually pretty dry; we laid our plans. The morning of The Day dawned bright and hot. I got a good hcac start on the barbecue—when the sun went under a cloud. Gratefu for the shade, I lore out to the garden and set up the folding chairs. It was while I was hulling strawberries for the ice cream tha Roger phoned to say, "So solly It's goitig to rain.** But the weatherman said—* 'Yes, I know what he said. Prea ure areas have charifjed since hen, A cold current has met up with our heat wave.** "We'll have to call of! the party. "Oh, we couldn't do that!" Roge exclaimed in shocked surprise What would the Russians think 'hey wouldn't understand. Any vay, they're dead set to come.* I knew who was going to win but I said weakly, "Whal'll I do? "Can't you get someone in Ui titch en?" "Not that I know <rf." -Well, try." Finally, after the seventh try got hold of a woman who, thoug ipt a caterer, was a good cook. Together we horsed the big tabl Substandard Products Go to Domestic Market TOKYO —AT 1 )— About 30.000,000.000 yen worth of unsold and substandard export product*—ranging from linens to locomotives—are to be placed on Japan's domestic market soon. (At the official conversion rate of 270 to $l t that ts more than $111,000,000 worth: it Is somewhat lew at going prices.) In addition, about, one-third ol that am on: ' -11,000.000,000 yen- .^uch products already tunneling into •^ihe domestic economy. The newspaper "Mainichi" blames "the accumulation of this stupendous bulk of unsold export goods" to "the blind production programs of man ufacturers in disregard of the tastes of trade customers." The locomotive. 1 ! were made unde R contract that was cancelled. Othe items, to be sold include Christmn toys and decorations, textiles, inn chinery. leather, rubber and cellul oid goods. Although apparent I grumpy about failure to sell foreign exchange. "Mainichi" observed tha at any rate the Japanese \vnrdrob should be enhanced. op up the basement stairs and nlo our drop-leaf dining table. Vhile Mrs. Sullivan put a shine n ihe long-sine* unused best fiat ilver, 1 spread the cloth. The best china and glass were usty from disuse. 1 wiped them arcfully on a tea towel a« I ounted them out: fourteen dinner laics, fourteen salad plates, four- een dessert plates, fourteen cups nd saucers, fourteen goblets—oh, ats! I'd have to start over. Barbecue food just doesn't look or aste ihe same in a dining room. I BEGAN again; got down fourteen service plates, fourteen mil cocktail glasses and plates for he melon balls I decided we'd lave to begin with. The fourteen coffee cups and saucers went back on the shelf and Ihe after-dinner coffee ursy and cups came down There was a little matter of serving silver and platters to be polished. The goblets looked lonely on the table. I remembered that Europeans (Asiatics?) like wine with their meals. We couldn't have ine and not lop oft* with a liqueur Out came fourteen wine glasse: and fourteen liqueur glasses. But what about cocktails? High balls do well enough at a picnic but this dinner was rapidly going formal on me. I got down fourteen cocktail glasses and the shaker tc be shined. By now, Mrs. Sullivan' tongue was hanging out; she wa working like a maniac. "We'll have to fry the chickens, I said. "Do yovi think au gratii potatoes will do?" "Shure mike," she said. **Bu you'll need vegetables. You can 1 have Roosians eating corn like bunch of gophers." I drove like mad to the grocer 1 and picked out a large cauliflowe for the center of the tray, carrota small round heels, parsley to gar nish with. That reminded me canapes. It's all right to drink highball neat, but cocktails call— especially to Russians—for cavia :id anchovies and salted nuts and jpclizers of all kinds. I was tiusUing oitl of the store 'hen I realized it was one tiling or Roger to grind ice cream out o( oois, quite another in a busy ilchcn. I flew down lo a cream- i-y and left an order for nn ice- ream cake lo b« delivered at :30 p.m. • • • ~\UR guests burst in on us a little after seven.

"I'm happy to have you here in ny borne," 1 suid. "," he said, smiling plens- nlly. He made signs townrd a irelty, dnrk-eyed little woman. "His wife," the interpreter said. She looked eagerly around, past me, and lo the living room. Ooooh!" she exclaimed, seeing ihe nano. She rushed over lo it mid an playing hungrily, like one who had been denied the opportunity for a long while. Thai look care o( her. "Colonel Kolovitch and Mrs, Kolovitch," the interpreter said, separating a middle-aged man and a leaden, chunky woman from the group at the door. I bowed. They bowed. Hearing music, they followed after Mrs. Bolovilch. 'Colonel Dolovitch and Mrs. Dolovitch," the interpreter send next. Someway, il reminded me of calling out stations on a suburban train. We bowed. Colonel Dolo- vitch and Mrs. Dolovitch stood their ground. "Miss de Luce," the interpreter said, pulling a young girl forward by her hand. She smiled. "So nice to meet you,* 1 she said, in Ihe sibilants of a French woman* I judged. The interpreter, his work begun, ushered her and the Dolovitches into the living room where Robbie was loading up Ihe record changer with Shostakovich against the time when Mrs. Bolovitch ran down.
