The low-brows; and the middle-brows have not yet signed any formal instrument of surrender, but admirers of Elvis Presley might as well abandon hope that he ever will be nvited to render "You're Nolhin' jut a Hound Dog" on the White House premises. Mrs. Kennedy's culture cam- oaign is taking hold all over Vfr. <hinglon. An eavesdropper at a drug store fountain heard a stenographer explaining, between bites of a tuna fish salad on rye, the While House recipe for crepes suzelte. At sundown the other day a youth in blue jeans stood at the corner of 13lh and Constitution Ave., and kissed a girl's hand with all the grace and aplomb of commercial attache at *..e French Embassy, If somebod/ exploded a plastic bomb, you would swear you were in Paris. Issues Communique The communique announcing the triumph of culture was issued, not by Mrs. Kennedy, but by Arthur Schlesinger Jr., special assistant (o the President: "In the Executive Mansion, tvhere Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians once played, we now find Isaac Stern, Pablo Casals, Stravinsky and the Oxford Players. I think we will not leave it to the Soviet Union to discover the Van Cli- burns of the future." 'Schlesinger, a Harvard professor and the Galahad of the cul- ure movement, fears no middle>row or low-brow and smites all 'hilistines with fervor, including Jen. Dwight D. Eisenhower who ikes Fred Waring's band and used to invite it to the White louse. Small pockets of resistance lave been established by the low>rows and the middle-brows and .hey are ready to resist to the death. An organization known as 'Central Burlesk" has dug in a "ew Mocks from the White House and, judging from th? line outside, a young lady named Natasa is rallying the troops with considerable effectiveness. Battle Tide Turns History will record that Nov. 14, 1961, was the date when the tide of battle turned in favor of the high-brows. The previous Saturday night Mrs. Kennedy gave a party for her sister, Princess Lee Had- ziwill. A volunteer propaganda minister for the low-brows started a sly, cunning rumor that the twist had been danced in the White House. At first it was ignored, but it grew to such proportions that White House press secretary Pierre Salinger delivered this mortal blow: "There was no twist danced that night. I was there until 3 a.m., and no- bocvy did the twist." From then on it was clear sailing for ballet dancers, opera, singers, violinists, winners of the Nobel Prize and Shakespeare. The forces of culture are not arrogant and inflexible in their moment of triumph and arc capable of some graceful concessions. When Harry Truman went to dinner at the White House, the orchestra played "'Missouri Waltz" and "The Caissons Go Holling Along" in tribute to the crashing defeat Capt. Truman's artillery company administered to the Kaiser in World War T. But after dinner it was Eugene List doing Chopin on the piano. A high-brow can be forgiven almost anything. Not long ago Dr. Linus Pauling, (he eminent scientist, was spending the daylight hours picketing the While House in protest, against the resumption of nuclear testing. One evening he changed from his work clothes and went to a parly the Kennedys gave for Nobel Prize winners. Was lie snubbed and scorned? No. The President greeted him: "I am delighted you are expressing your views in such a forthright manner." How does one become a highbrow? This definition, uttered by a British philosopher named Sir Alan Herbert, might be helpful: 1 A high-brow is the kind of a person who looks at a sausage and ihinks of Picasso."
