She stuck her head out the window of her safe haven on Massachusetts Ave. to get a "dear little whiff of tear gas." Mrs. Longworth said the tear gas was like "a bit of pepper In my nostrils that cleared my sinuses. I sniffed like mad. It was very good for me." Attorney General John Mitchell called his wife on the phone and said, "From the windows of the Justice Department, it looks like the Russian Revolution." Most of the windows on the first floor of his department were broken.

At (he Sulgrave Club, the RN Associates, which means contributors of $1,000 or more We're "there has been no censorship" of Mrs. Rosenwald's relations with the press. The first rule of a ghost writer is anonymity, so how did Mrs. Rosenwald get so much publicity? Splro must be a dear not to object. "She's the only person on his staff to write speeches and that was known In his gubernatorial days," explained a spokesman, who aaid that Cymtihiia has been trying to avoid publicity.

Cyrus Baton, the Cleveland Industrialist who Is so cozy with USSR leaders, said at a Soviet Embassy reception that he has invited Leonid Brezhnev to come to America. Brezhnev has not received an official invitation by the U.S. government, but Eaton extended a personal one for a private visit. He does not know if Brezhnev will accept, but if he does It could be a little sticky. Angle Duke is touring America and lecturing on his experiences as an ambassador and chief of protocol.

But he probably has politics in mind and likes the public exposure. There's a rumor out of New York that Mayor Lindsay is interested in Angle since the Dukes helped bring In the absentee New York vote from Paris, Rome and London. Robin Duke, now installed in their London house, is writing a book on entertaining. From whither doth this book-writing epidemic come? avers paying more COSMETIC QUEEN? Dina Merrill, right, may be telling Sen. and Mrs.

Claiborne Pell about her new cosmetic line that will be on sale in April. She was in Washington for a party. ation, there was constant speculation that Mrs. Winchester would be the first to go. But 'tain't so.

"Lucy will definitely remain," said Connie. And it Is rumored that the two of them may have more to do with jazzing up the personality pulse of the parties at the White House In the future. Two White House speech-writers of the Johnson administration are turning out a novel about a president in the 1970s that's now In the hands of the publishers. Ben Wattenberg and Irvin Duggan joined forces to write the book that may do for the White what "Advise and Consent" did for the U.S. Senate.

Liz Carpenter, who has read it in part, says, "It moves. Oh, it grips you!" Former White House housekeeper 3Iary Kaltman writing a book about guess what? Housekeeping. It will not be about the problems at 1600 Pennsylvania however. It will be about housekeeping In this modern period. "The old ways are not effective anymore," said Mary, whose tome will be published by Doubleday.

The president of the Opera Society of Washington revealing a secret method for raising funds for the society at the French Embassy's ultra-chic Rossini musicals. Hobart Spaulding said that every time he goes to New York he purchases a lottery iticket in the name of the opera society, then waits and prays. Why don't cities Institute cultural lotteries to pay for tali their mapor cultural projects? Cynthia Rosenwald, the brilliant young Baltimore housewife who has been writing speeches for Agnew since he was governor of Maryland, is declining all Interviews. But, said an Agnew spokesman, to Richard Nixon (like the o-ocrat's President's Club), heard the "wife of the man of the hour," Judy Agnew, Introduced as "the a to save B10W Passbook Savings: Savings Certificates: 1 A- per annum, per annum, oping, testing, packaging and marketing," she said, "but I am no business gal." The whole idea started about two years ago when she mentioned to Thomas Cooney, president of Coty, that somebody ought to produce cosmetics that are not gimmicky or harmful. Cooney took one look at her beautiful skin and asked if she would do something about it.

The daughter of the still-beautiful Marjorie Merri-weather Post said her mother's "good sense about skin care keeping it clean, lubricated and moistured," would be incorporated into the line. Does the cosmetic business mean that she will cut down on her acting? "No! Heavens, no! It's going to be a sideline." She is going to Japan in February to do "The Walking Major" and Cliff plans to join her there. In the meantime they are planning to attend the Turn of the Century Party in New York on Dec. 1. Dina was surprised when her husband consented to go to a big social bash, but Cliff loves that era.

"I think the Gibson Girl clothes were the most feminine, most attractive clothes for women in history," he said. "They make a woman look more like a woman and a man feel more like a man."

Adlad Stevenson's sister, Buffie Ives, who blew into town for a few days, said that Adlal would have been "very saddened by the demonstra-ibions because they are not very constructive. He hated violence in any form." She also added that Sen. Eugene McCarthy, who has been so identified with the demonstrators, behaved at the Democratic Convention in manner that would have "absolutely withered Adlal. He was a good party man and good organization man and would never have taken a stand that would have splintered the party." It was through the influence of Mrs. Ives that the upcoming 70th birthday anniversary ifundraising dinner in February for the Adlal Stevenson Institute of International Affairs will be $500 per person instead of $1,000.

Former Ambassador Bill Blair, who initiated the chic to-do at the Plaza Hotel along with Mrs. Vincent Astor, Lauren Bacall, Bill Benlton. Mrs. Marshall Field, the Ronald Trees, and others, originally suggested a $1,000 price tag. And there is the story about Sen.

Bill Fulbright, who has blamed Vice President Agnew for instigating his hate mall, getting Ma comeuppance from his caddy. The senator was playing in m. foursome at Burning Tree Club and kept hitting the ball Into the rough where the caddy has a hard time finding it. Finally the senator sent the ball so deeply into the rough the caddy couldn't find it at all despite a careful search. Fulbright a so exasperated he said to the bag carrier, who was the oldest and most experienced at the club "You are the worst caddy the club." "No, 8enator," replied the caddy, "that would be too much of a coincidence." Washington lawyer Robert Amory was recently stopped on the street by some taunting youths whom he set back on their heels.

En route to a dinner party at the 1925 Street Club in proper black tie garb, Bob was asked by three grubby-looking hippies, "What's that you're wearing?" "This is the uniform of the military-industrial complex," replied Amory gaily. "Want to make something of it?" They couldn't even think of a comeback. Cliff Robertson And Red Baron Dina Merrill and Cliff Robertson winged into Washington for a party given by ABC Pictures and Cinerama and Cliff broke the news that Cinerama will produce the picture he Is now directing and acting in. It's called "I Shot Down the Red Baron, I Think," and is a sociological comedy of 1918-1919. While on the topic of pictures, the multi-talented and immensely philanthropic Robertson said what he thought about nudity in today's theater.

"I think if you have a legitimate, meaningful reason to show someone in the near buff is one thing. But to have everyone disrobe in order for the producer to make money is inexcusable. Nudity is just an excuse for a lack of talent." Dina Is all excited about her new cosmetic line which she is in the process of testing and developing. "They will be in the stores at the beginning of April," she said The products to be put out by Coty-Pfizer wsll bear her name but she will have no title in the company.
