  • 2. Dear Washingtonian; As the new owner and manager of the Hay~ Adam , let me extend my greetings and invite you to vi it our hotel and dining room. Until recently I served as Vice Chairman of the French company that operates three of Europe,s most dis~ tinguished hotels: Le Meudce, LeGrand and Le Prince de Galles in Paris, plus the world famous Cafe de la Paix restaurant. My family and I have now come to live in Washington. We feel this city-and The Hay~Adams-perfectly combine the finest American traditions with the elegance and beauty we knew and enjoyed in Europe. We look forward to our life here and to maintaining the 52~year tradition of The Hay~ Adams, as the premier hotel and dining room in the nation,s capital. I intend to apply the high standards of European luxury to The Hay~ Adams. In this dedication, I am joined by my wife, Danielle. Together we will per~ sonally supervise every aspect of operations and service- for your total comfort. Your patronage is deeply appreciated. We trust that our efforts to assure your satisfaction will meet with your approval. Sincerely, Georges and Danielle Masse At 16th and H rreet , N.W. Wa hingron, D.C. 20006 Tel. 63 ~2260

He shows the works of art- ists he respects, regardless of style; among them are the haunting images of Peter Milton, the lyrical impressions of nature by Lee Weiss, the dreamlike seascapes of Herman Maril, the tor- tured figures by Michael Platt, the abstract collages by Clare Ferriter and the surrealistic oils by Anita Bucherer, harking back to medieval themes. eanwhile, a few paces from Du- M pont Circle at 2009 Q St., N.W ., a gallery with a very special concept celebrates its inaugura- tion. Appropriately, it is named "Du- pont Space." It is international in outlook with an accent on Latin American art . The exciting and unique part is that it promises to blend some of the aspects and activities heretofore reserved for museums and their curators with the traditional tasks of commercial galleries. The program of exhibitions, lectures and demonstrations is indeed a novel mix. So is the introduction of new talent by art critics, museum curators or an established artist. For openers, there is a perusal of " The Mechanics of the Art Market, 1960-80," a project executed with . the assistance of Sotheby Parke Bernet and the Wall Street Journal. Other items of interest are "The History of the Frame from the Baroque to the Light Beam," carvings and paintings from the famed Peruvian "Cuzco School" or the contemplated survey of contemporary art in Cuba, " Cuba 1980."

While the event was good-natured, as guests shared the commonality and trivia of a political gathering, there were some unspoken undertones. Lucie Ar- naz, for example, was the featured singer.

The President himself, wandering around somewhat bemused, seemed to be obeying his political direc- tor s caveat by paying special attention to the distaff side. He complimented Muska Brzezinski on her cooking, Shirley Metzenbaum on her scrimshaw necklace and Betsy Farly, States liason • for Latin American affairs, on her hairstyle. Staff men monitored him carefully, expressing praise at his command of public humor, which was well - performed, and private banter, which showed room for improvement. Ob- viously girding for the impending Ken- nedy bout, one insider insisted that campaign oratory will excise both demagoguery and any references to Chappaquiddick.

Givin Throughout Washingtons history, however, some of the citys wealthy citizens have confounded their peers and other observers with their generous, wi ... even lavish, expenditures on behalf of civic, cultural, educational and other worthwhile, people-oriented causes. One of these was Morris Cafritz, the Washington real estate tycoon who in life and, through his foundation, since his death 15 years ago has given away millions of dollars. As a poor boy living in Georgetown, Cafritz tried his hand at a variety of jobs. Somewhere along the line, he bought a house and sold it at a profit; that early transaction led to a real estate empire which included the building of thousands of private homes, mostly in the Petworth area of Washington, as well as office buildings, apartment houses and shopping plazas. This real estate bonanza has accrued to the largest foundation in the city, the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Founda- tion, which disburses some two million dollars annually to a variety of projects in the Washington area, as well as the La Scala, Bolshoi and Vienna Operas, making possible their visits to the Ken- nedy Center. The Calder stabile at the Smithsonian Museum of History and Technology, as well as the Henry Moore sculpture at the entrance to the new East Wing of the National Gallery of Art, are further examples of Cafritz generosity. But the elusive in- tangible-why Morris Cafritz left his money to this city-remains with him. A partial answer is offered by Martin Atlas, vice president and treasurer of the foundation, who explained: "Mr. Cafritz loved Washington. He made his money here and he felt a stong sense of community in the city."

The money is used for the produc- tion of the costly operas. But, Di Bona pointed out, the committee is not just after money. The creation of goodwill and interest in opera in general-and the struggling company and its new director, Martin Feinstein in par- ticular-are equally important.

The Congressional ap- propriation had to be matched by private contributions; it was exceeded by a considerable margin ." Private philanthropy has been mainly responsible for turning Washington into a cultural urban center of a caliber that can now challenge some cities with a longer cultural tradition. And sometimes the cultural giving is on a smaller scale. A grant awarded by the Cafritz Foundation to the "Music at Noon" program, which allows outstanding musicians to give free con- certs in a downtown Washington church, has given a great deal of pleasure to the donor, the grantees and the public. "Ordinarily after you make a grant," says Martin Atlas of the foundation, "you get a thank-you note from the ex- ecutive director or the president. You dont hear from them again unless they come back for a renewal of the grant. The first time I went to the church, I was amazed to see the mob.

(Coward, McCann & Geoghegan) And who is to disprove a word of it? Ruth Montgomery, undisputed expert -ANNE DENTON BLAIR on matters of psychic phenomena, was a highly respected and widely syn- dicated political columnist for some 25 years before turning her talent and ex- pertise to the occult. So her newest book, Strangers Among Us, must be ac- cepted as no mere whimsy or sci-fi thriller. Her long-time friendship with the famous cleric and medium, Arthur Ford, introduced her to the spirit world, and she is still in touch with him as well as her newer "Spirit Guides," who ex- plain-through automatic writing-the life beyond and other mysteries.

Mix- ing the classic with the unique, daytime with nighttime separates, he proved his customer can keep his "collect- ibles" for years. His major daytime theme is the Charles Stuart look. A highland fling of short boleros or fitted jackets in solid wools or velvets were shown with fully pleated skirts, kilts and cuffed trousers, a long with huge scotch plaid shawls draped across jackets like sashes. Another day-to-evening look: the kilt, in a rich, supple panne velvet. St. Laurents romantic mood for evening is reflected in.long taffeta dresses with puffed sleeves and flounced skirt bowed at the waist; but the oriental theme is his major statement for evening. Quilted jackets in dif- ferent shapes - in fabrics ranging from flowered satin or silk prints to brocade with lame touches - were shown over silk skirts, pants and easy-shaped tunics. Knickers were also seen underneath open-fronted, long taffeta skirts. The striking combination of colors is masterful: the mixtures of fuschia red and oxblood; black, turquoise, pine green and kelly green; shocking pink, purple and black; purple, peach, yellow, sand and grey; orange and inky blue with turquoise and fuschia.
