HIGH SOCIETY HAS UNDERGONE a revolution. Instead of "The 400", there's a little group of 30 people called the Locomotives who are much more influential than the Old Guard. This attractive under 40 group set trends for living and are educated, European minded, gay, and intellectually hungry. And all of the ladies have baby-fine hair. - o I GET MOST OF MY INFORMATION on this kind of stuff from the Ladies Home Journal, a mass circulation publication it Is true, but they nevertheless like to keep us up on the way the other 99.99999% live. John Burr Fairchild, who claims to have no aspirations to the really smart set on which he reports, presents a chapter from his book, "The Fashionable Savages" describing the Locomotives. Then, just as I was getting used to this ratified air, I turned a few pages and read, "Keeping Up With The Armstrong-Jones". Princess Margaret and her husband are turning London upside-down with their Go-Go set I - o - Go-Go have the ab- what's "Out" in their EITHER THE LOCOMOTIVES OR THE solute last word on what is "In" and particular area so I really don't think there's much chance of Pa and me joining either group. This is chiefly because we'll never see forty again. However, I do have baby-fine, and I like to tell people what's In, so I'm going to start my own smart set. There'll be only twenty of us which makes us ten more exclusive than the Locomotives. We'll call ourselves the Pick-up Trucks - the Went-Went set. - o - THE FIRST TIME THE LOCOMOTIVES were noticed was at a charity ball. Isabel Eberstadt came in with the Young Group, wearing a white Courreges skirt, and underneath, beautifully shaped pants. "My, dear", one member of the Old Guard breathed, "Pants under a skirt I It has never been done before I" Well, I've got news for her. We Pick-up Truck members have always worn pants under our skirts. We just don't go around showing them. - o THE LOCOMOTIVES ARE GREAT ON collecting things - bells, tin soldiers, Staffordshire china and sari silks. Our Group collects things, too - trading stamps, dust, scrap iron and those cups and saucers they give with a $5 order at the supermarket. Both the men and ladies of the Locomotive set do needle point squares as one of their hobbies. In our Pick-up Truck set, we gals patch pants and the fellows, under duress, fix faucets and mend screens. We are also artistic like the Locomotives, only instead of painting lots of self-portraits and wall murals, we paint by numbers and redo the living room walls. The Locomotives have pets such as young ocelets and pastel cockatiels, but we've got pets, too - mongrel dogs, assorted cats, parakeets and goldfish 1 - o ALL THE GO-GO SET IN London has to do to make a night club or restaurant popular in London is for Princess Margaret and her pals to show up there. Although the Locomotives first discovered the Peppermint Lounge in New York and made the Twist popular they no longer likei the^ffwist. 3"h,«j Pick-up Trucks ar£ tired of the Twist, also'." Sometimes 1 think we are just plain tired. - o IT IS AT THE LITTLE INTIMATE parties at home that both the Locomotives and the Go-Go sets especially excel. Our set gives pretty good brawls at home, too, especially when it is too long until pay-day to go out on the town. We kind of frown upon getting too intimate, though. . o A TYPICAL RECENT MENU at both the Burdeens of the New York Locomotives and at Princess Margaret's of London, so I read, was pate en croute, a saddle of lamb with a Mouton Rothschild 1953 wine. With the Went-Went set, our typical menu is cheese dip and crackers, ground chuck fixed on the barbecue, lots of coffee and if anybody wants anything stronger they can bring their own beer. Princess Margaret frequently asks her guests to serve themselves and carry their own dishes to the kitchen after eating I We've been doing this forever and we go even further. With our set, the girls both wash and dry the dishes. - o AT ONE INTIMATE DINNER PARTY the Burdeens of the Locomotives gave (she's the daughter of Mrs. William S. Paley, long on the Best Dressed List), all of the ladies wore gowns designed by Mainbocher and he was even there himself I Alter the saddle of lamb dinner, the Young Group - Isabel Eberstadt, Gloria Vanderbilt Cooper and the others, took their coffee on one side of the ice-blue drawing room. On the other side, Main- bocher, who had dressed a whole generation of Best Dressers, sat in an ice-blue overstuffed chair, watching the Locomotives I - o - THIS WAS WRITTEN UP WITH SUCH a tone of reverence that I lost several nights sleep trying to think of a similar situation for the Pick-up Trucks. About the best that we can do, since we can't possibly get Mainbocher would be to ask the Proprietor of Benny's Thrift Shop where lots of usWent-Wents buy our gowns. We could take our coffee on one side of the apple green living room, and Benny could sit in the apple green lawn chair watching the Pick-up Trucks. He might have ample reason to keep his eyes on us, Some of us might not yet have paid our last month s bill, - o DURING THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 17 through 23, people having birthdays include Glenn Seger, Clyde Lloyd, John Phillips, Minnie Houck, Sally Gotten, Matthew Gotten, Cara Taylor, Randy Anderson, Mae Raney, Roger Ferris, Abner Long, Sarah Geelan, Kay Nugent, Ruth Robinson, Trudy Smith, Champ Martin, Dorcas McNertney, Mary Beth Montag, Lynn Studer, Connie Nash, Mark Myers, Harold Fristedt, Michael Nitchals, Paul Watkins, H.
