Behind its shining counter, Daoud (pronounced David) pre- ides with great .eloquence, espe- ially when the Sheikh ente-tains. i. large number of Washington jalates, jaded with stronger stuff, ;et a ,real kick out of the concoc- ions Daoud dreams up. Although Daoud Has only been n this country three months he can turn out anything from a strawberry whatcham-acallem to an elaborate 'banana split. Daoud earned his profession the easy vay. He just visited all the soda ountains he could find and ordered and ate various sodas and sundaes 'until he learned how to make them himself. Most of the American guests at he legation like the strawberry and chocolate affairs, or the cider not hard) Which flows from one jadget of the fountain. The Saudi- Arabians, however, just dote on Tutti-frutti. Daoud draws on all his imagination for this. Over a couple of scoops of ice cream he lavishly spreads bananas, peaches, pine- appe, raisins, nuts and gobs of whipped cream. The Saudi-Arabians bought the great 5-room Woodland Drive mansion from Rep. Wadsworth (R-NY) for $90,000. They spent $200,000 fixing it up. They seem to be 1 more proud of the soda fountain room at the back of the house than anything else. There is another favorite nook —the sun room. It has been completely reecorated in vari-colored tiles. It has a fountain and potted palms. . Most of the color scheme is achieved in cream. Even the furniture is this color. Arabian tapestries are exquisitely draped at the windows and priceless rugs cover every floor. The Minister has four servants— a cook, two maids and a butler.

She had gone to the Condon home and she had helped Janice dress and pack and then she had driven to the airport with Janice and her father. Together she and Arthur Condon had stood at the end of the runway with a chill dawn wind whipping around them and watched Ihe plane carrying Janice fade into the still dim sky. It was on the drive back homo that Mr. Condon had spoken to her about what was really worrying him. He told her of his recent concern about Russel and that he himself had urged the trip which had turned out so badly. He sighed heavily: "I'll — I'll never forgive myself if either one of the boys is hurt seriously." After a moment she said uncertainly, "You mustn't blame yourself for that, you know. You meant it for the best." Arthur Condon looked at her thoughtfully. "I've sometimes Ihought, Elise, that Russel is in love with you. Now, I don't mean to pry it's your affair and his, but I want you to know that nothing could make me happier than lo have you and Russel marry," This on top of her sudden and shattering realization that it was Red McFan she loved instead of Russel was more than Elise could sland. It was all she could do to hold back hysterical tears. "Mr. Condon — please — please" Of course he misunderstood her met. She remembered the feeling she had had the night Ihey first danced together.

There -there—" he said contritely. "I shouldn't have talked about it now. I know you're worried." If he really knew the truth, Elise had thought in stony despair! Two weeks and now staring at the calendar, thinking back into the unhappy wretched days and hours that had passed, the same contradictory regrets and wishes were slili spinning through her mind as they had that morning.

Easy to realize now that she had been aHi-;icU'd to him physically wn purpose. Over and over these thoughts At lunch time she moped into the women's room that opened off the aboratory. In the mirror above the avatory she saw her face pale and sallow looking from loss of leep, with great dark circles under her eyes, and was so miserable she didn't care how she looked. Which was very bad indeed. List- essly she applied a little lipstick and turned awa.y from the mirror. She wasn't hungry; she didn't want to eat. She knew if she went nto the cafeteria the smell of the food would only nauseate her. And she was too restless to stretch out on the couch and rest. Suddenly she remembered a roll of pictures she had left at a cam-: era shop to be developed. They had probably been ready days : before, but she had forgotten about; them. She'd go by and get them. It would be something to do. The snapshots as she had expected Were ready for her. She looked at them, on her way back to the laboratory on the bus. There were several good pictures among them. One of herself smiling straight into camera. And another of Russel. Elise looked at that one a long time. His fair hair brushed back from a straight meticulous part on on one side of his head, his deep- set eyes, the thin lean planes of his face. She looked at it and sighed and wondered for the millionth lime why she hadn't fallen in love with him instead of Red McFan. Russel was everything most women would want. She took the pictures back to the laboratory with her and tossed them into the drawer of her work table and forgot about them. Collier.

Caricatures of Brooklyn residents in the movies, on the stage, night club floors and the radio constantly depict the citizens of- the Flatbush borough as guttural wise guys whose ultimate cultural conversation conc'erns the lineup of the Brooklyn Dodgers, voiced in a meaty diction which changes oysters to erstcrs and first to foist. That Brooklyn has no interest in culture is a statement which, according to Julius Bloom, director of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, is a nasty, ridiculous canard. A full; century B. D., meaning Before Durocher, the folks across Brooklyn Bridge were doing something about ' their cultural urgea, Bloom pointed. out. In 1823, In fact, what now is the Institute, the largest and oldest 'organization of its kind, opened its doors as an Apprentice's Library ,and the prominent members of what then was a small village trundled wheelbarrows, from • house to house to collect books for the new venture. "We started our job of edifying working boys with a collection of 724 books, 150 pamphlets, and 50 readers," said Mr. Bloom, who uses "we" with a benovelent possessiveness which completely transcends the fact that he wasn't there at the time. Brooklyn quickly learned about the library and its popularity grow. In 1940, after absorbing an organization known- as the Brooklyn Lyceum, it was given its present name and really started cooking on all four cultural burners. From then on a period of steady growth continued which by the turn of the century had assumed mass proportions. "We were doing practically everything cultural one. would expect to find in any city," Bloom explained. "Library, concerts, lectures, courses .for adults, museum, botanic garden, children's museum and so on,' ' • Some 400 separate events are other's vanities Aw and bleeding from the constant pin pricks with which they puncture them. It is'a tragic thing thai nearly every marriage lhat is .a failure is the result of a misband or wife not being a good enough pilot to atcer around the rocks instead of smashing headlong into -them, nnd wrecking the whole business. There Isn't a wandering, husband who* wouldn't slay put at home if his wife never wearied in -singhiM her paeans- of adjulalion and made him feel like a little tin god. There isn't a woman who wouldn't quit griping over »the hardships of a wife and mother, who is lied down to her house and babies, if her husband bueked her tip b.y telling her how brave she was and what an. example she set other married women". It is tact that does it. It is tact that lubricates the wheels of do- ', mcsic life and makes them ruiv : j smoothly. A man may make a row every morning of his life over the coffee tasting like dish water and the toast being more suitable for concrcle paving than human con- slightest results. But just let him sumption without ever gelling the praise his wife's cooking and he can turn her into a chef. A woman may be married lo a man who is stingy and tyrannical and afflicted with the head - of-the- house complex. She can never get anything out of him as her due for her services, but she can walk mi silk at.tire and have'silver lo spare ' if she 'uses Ihe nowcr of suggestion upon him and lets him think that everything they do and have is his wonderful idea. Diplomacy is good in all relations of life, but in marriage it does Us great and perfect work.
