Last year, Peter caused quite a stir in the fancy neigh-; borhood (and also on the bottom of his own neighbor hood) by swallowing his mother's huge diamond ring. In this case, I'm happy to report that everything came out all right in the end. A few relatively peaceful months went byand then, a couple of days ago, Peter Did It Again. He took his mother's $6000 full-length mink coat and stuffed it into the toilet. "Bye-bye, tink-tink," gurgled Peter in his best Crane manner, but the mink-mink didn't go bye-bye. It just stayed there, utterly ruined. "I was only gonna wash it," Peter explains miserably. The insurance company is miserable, too.

Sort of an old-fissioned Jimmy Durante, who closes today at the Auto Show, should've been interested in last headlines proclaiming the conviction of Joe Tenner, the tennerloin nogoodnik, on charges of peddling booze without a license. Back in '41, when Durante's career was at its lowest ebb, Tenner hired him for his short-lived F'man's Wharf nightclub, Stairway to the Stars. For peanuts. About $750 a week. And even at that salary, Durante was a flop The Diamond Knee, the Mason St. joint that features strippers, hot jazz stars and even B-girk, wins today Like George Washington ys toi.k what's-the-name-again contest hands down. When Gene Krupa was there, the posters outside the club announced "Gene Kruper." And now that Les Brown's great band is on tap, the town is plastered with placards advertising Less Brown. And I'm sure they don't mean the Less Brown the better. j( MISCASTING So the photoggers shooting S.F. scenes for Cinerama were up at Top the Mark Thursday and they asked a visitor there if he'd mind standing by the window, admiring the view, for a closeup shot. The tourist did a fine job of emoting, but I have a hunch he'll be sorrreiee. He's Phil A. Harrington of the L. A. Chamber of Commerce! NOTES FROM ALL OVER: If you. Montgy. Streeters are thinking about a trip to Honolulu to escape Equitable Life's boom-chucker, f'get it. Right across the street from the Moana Hotel, a pile-driver is hard at work on the site of the Princess Kaiulani Hotel. I always figgered that everybody had a swimming pool in Los Altos, "The Town of Millionaires," but the kid was wrong again. On Feb. 26-27, the town will stage a "Fathers Frolic" (whatever that is) to raise dough for a community swimming hole. "The Glenn Miller Story" is now playing in town and that reminds me that the late Glenn's younger brother, Herb, lives in Pacific Grove, where he teaches music in the elementary schools. Herb, who's 39, married, and the father of four, hasn't seen the picture. "And," he adds, "I'm not so sure I want to." WHAT BIG EARS I HAVE: Guy to his pal at the Auto Show: "Vknow, I just ordered a car I've never seen, of a make I've never driven, in a color combination I never heard of, with money I haven't got!"

It takes more than a price tag, to be sure, it takes quality too! We are not interested in selling you the cheapest, we believe in selling you the best at the lowest possible price, and whenever feasible at a specially low price.
