EDITOR'S NOTE
Our most outspoken critics have sometimes
complained that too many stories in The
Washington Dossier are focused on women.
The criticism is justified if we think local
fashion, cooking, partying, gossip and inte-
rior decorating are strictly feminine pursuits,
which we don't. Nevertheless, we decided
to dedicate this issue to Washington men and
include some business and money matters
believe will interest women as well: a
WASHINGTON MONEY COVER photo-
graphed by Gary lglarsh; lizard card case,
gold tank watch and money clip from Les
must de Cartier; sterling Waterman fountain
pen, gold Pfeil calfskin key case and Leather-
smith diary from Camalier & Buckley; Mac-
clesfield silk handkerchief from Burberrys;
Mercedes key and silver key chain from the
American Service Center; coordinated by
Jennifer Johnston.
lively attack on the soaring U.S. dollar by
economist Eliot Janeway, some tips on smart
local real estate investments from the gurus
and a light-hearted focus on seven silver-
haired power brokers around town.
Our centerpiece this month is a feature
on the revolving door that now spins between
the top ranks of government and Wash-
ington PR firms. In reporting this story,
veteran writer Dom Bonafede found PR
people remarkably candid about how access
is bought and sold in this town. The high
stakes and costs involved should concern
all Washingtonians, men and women alike .

Reactions from our Readers
Last Words on Hill Wives
As a House spouse of 16 years and the
author of the Dossier article that lllunched
Washington into another of its all too fre-
quent games of ltivial Pursuit, may I have
another-if not the final-word on the
subject of congressional wives?
Frankly, I think this latest lapse into las-
civious hysteria is more revealing of the
news business than it is of Lady Leotard.
While perhaps not a model of modesty or
humility, Ms. Davis cannot be called dumb.
She is a woman who wanted attention. Being
a media consultant, she knew how to geUt.
Certainly the five equally beautiful and
accomplished congressional wives proftled
in Dossier had created no such media waves,
despite the fact that the group encompassed
a law student, a Phi Beta Kappa, a profes-
sional singer, a business executive and a
woman involved in the fight against famine;
women about as philosophically removed
from "cloying Barbie Dolls" as Mother
Teresa from Alexis Carrington. Clearly the
difference was skin. The women in Dossier
were in ball gowns, not leotards.
It's remarkable to realize that in this
town of vaunted sophistication and libera-
tion sexism still rules. In order to reign
supreme, the empress still must wear no
clothes.
The argument goes you can't ignore news.
I argue, such photographs are not news. It
is as usual to see beauty in a bathing suit as
it is to spy snow on the Alps. It is not unusual
to see a congressional wife in briefs. How
can we forget the former wife of the former
congressman from South Carolina? It is
unusual, however, to see a stunning blond
like Grace Nelson, wife of Representative
Bill Nelson cradling diseased and starving
children in Africa, proclaiming a goal to
end world hunger by the year 2000-yet
no cameramen lent their lens, no reporters
picked up pens to further that story.
In their perpetual pandering to the pru-
rient, journalists merely serve to deepen
the public's conviction that our profession
is much more interested in sensation than
substance.
Isn't it too bad that in its search for an
angle about women, the media so often
only responds to a curve.

"I could've sworn

at a discount."
said
They did.
The Drysdales bought yards and
and yards of rich, sumptuous carpet-
ing, all without a single flaw. Naturally,
from Woodmont Carpet and Interiors.
And the discount? Don't let
that confuse you. It's as much a part
of Woodmont as the quality name
brands they carry. Like Karastan.
And Cabin Craft. Plus investment
quality oriental rugs. Even tile and
hardwood floors. Wall and window
coverings too. Problem is, after years
of providing consistently fine
merchandise, people just forget
they're discount.
So next time you see a
Woodmont truck parked in some-
one's driveway, think twice. Sure,
they've got good taste. But you can
bet they've got good sense as well.
Come by and see what kind of
surprising prices Woodmont can
come up with for you.

RUMOR NO.3
All is not well at Rickover
Foundation
Admiral Hyman Rickover, no
stranger to pitched battles is
rumored to be having one in
his own nest. According to
friends, wife Eleonore is re-
portedly livid and fighting
back against what she per-
ceives as attempts by Joann
DiGennaro, who heads the
Rickover Foundation, to ma-
nipulate her controversial hus-
band for her own fmancial
and political gain. There are
also reports that the IRS is
looking into this situation.
DiGennaro allegedly has three
of her relatives on the founda-
tion payroll. She serves as its
managing vice president, treas-
urer and executive director.
Former Carterite David
Rubenstein is secretary.
RUMOR NO.4
Meese's attorney is model
for new work by Herman
Wouk
Leonard Garment, who served
as a special counsel to Nixon
during his presidency and
more recently as an attorney
for Edwin Meese in his bid
for attorney general, is per-
plexed. He sees himself, per-
haps rightly, as a model for
David Goodkind, the leading
character in Herman Wonk's
new book "Inside, Outside."
Like Garment, Goodkind is
also a White House counsel to
Nixon. While Garment and
Wouk barely know each other,
Garment sees the intellectual
resemblance as uncanny. He
should, after all, know what
goes on in his own mind.
Wouk, whose novel deals with
the Jewish experience in
America, is well-known as a
meticulous researcher.
RUMOR NO.5
Zuckerman, Steinem
nuptials uncertain
Those rumors of impending
nuptials between media/real
estate mogul Mort Zuckerman
and feminist Gloria Steinem
are unlikely to come true.
Friends are saying "don't
hold your breath."
RUMOR NO.6
Did the Italian prime
minister trade a joint ses-
sion speech for U. S. cruise
missiles?
WASHIN610N CIRCLES
Prime Minister Bettino Craxi
allegedly told President Rea-
gan that in exchange for the
status and prestige of address-
ing a joint session of Congress
(which he did), he would con-
sider supporting the placement
of U.S. cruise missiles on
Italian soil.
GAYLE'S WASHINGTON
Gayle Wilson, whose husband
Pete is Senator from Califor-
nia has struck out on her own
as a television performer. The
pilot of her first show, which
is built around personality
profiles of people in Washing-
ton, is being offered for syn-
dication through the Storer
Broadcasting chain.

Phil Ratner and Chief Justice Burger
SCULPTING BUDDIES
Few know it, but Supreme
Court Chief Justice Warren
Burger is an accomplished
sculptor. Years before his high
court appointment, he struck
up a friendship with Washing-
ton artist Phil Ratner, whose
reputation now soars world-
wide. It was the chief justice
who persuaded Ratner to do
less painting and more
sculpting, a lucky choice since
Ratner's commissions now in-
clude bronze sculptures on
Ellis Island and a bible
museum devoted to Ratner's
works in Israel. The two are
still sculpting buddies and the
chief justice uses Ratner's
studio for his own artistic
endeavors.
WASHINGTON DOSSIER I APRIL 1985 19
Gray-Haired Eminence Conquers Washington
BY RICHARD KROLIK
Teir looks are symbolic
of high ower and position. They are among Washing-
ton's celebrated "silver foxes," men distinguished from
other potentates not because they are sly or cunning,
but because each is a roaring success in his chosen
field, each has a presence.
And each has a splendid head of silver hair.
Gray hair can do a lot for a man. According to
Milton Pitts, barber to presidents and the power elite
in Washington for many a year, gray or white hair
softens the lines in a man's face-in contrast to dark
locks, which actually emphasize the lines.
Some silver foxes have watched their hair turn gray
and then white over the decades. Others went white in

The question: Did the distinguished
whiteness above their ears contribute to
their positions of eminence? Or did the
hard work bring on their gray hair?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
If you sat in a box at a formal Kennedy
Center opening and scanned the sea of
black-tied men below, these silver-toned
men would stand out like snow-capped
peaks rising from a dark sea.
If you were a lawyer, a politician, a
public-relations counselor, a retailer, a
journalist, a local government official or
a lobbyist, you'd also know these men.
They're leaders.
We present seven silver foxes of
Washington:
"It is a joy to find in one man such a fine
intellect and so much humor." So says John
Charles Daly, a 30-year golfing buddy from
Burning 'free, who goes on to observe that
watching Clark Clifford play golf explains
his great success in his chosen field. "One
has the impression that he has read and
studied every article written about the game,
and has sought to implement every sugges-
tion therein," says Daly. "He has not been
entirely successful. But his perseverance
and the extent of his effort must explain
in large measure his enormous success in
other fields."
Off the golf course, Clifford is the epitome
of style, power and A successful
St. Louis attorney, he carne to Washington
after World War II as naval aide to the new
president, Harry S. 'fruman, and then be-
came his special counsel. After leaving the
White House with 'fruman, he was invited
back regularly to advise presidents and their
Cabinets, and in 1968 Lyndon Johnson
appointed him secretary of Defense.
Clifford's hair didn't go from blond to
white until he was nearly 70. Next year,
he'll be 80 but there is no visible slowdown
in his activities. One friend of many years
calls him "incredibly organized and self-
disciplined ... he works with remarkable
intensity, and has a totally controlled mind."
In addition to his command of law, advice
and entree, Clifford has recently taken on
the chairmanship of First American Bank-
shares Corp., a $4 billion holding company
that controls banks in Washington, Mary-
land, Virginia, New York and Tennessee.
President Kennedy may have had the last
word on Clifford when he addressed the
Alfalfa Club just days after taking office.
"Clark has been one of my mainstays,"
said JFK. "He told me he didn't want any-
thing for himself- just advertise the name
of his Jaw firm on the one dollar bills."
Clifford, his friends will tell you, not
only looks elegant, in carefully tailored suits
and immaculately trimmed silver hair, but
he sounds elegant, too. His voice is low and
well-modulated, prompting listeners to lean
22 WASH! GTON DoSSIER I APRIL 198'
forward attentively. Some of his detractOrs
hint that he may speak low quite deliber-
ate1y, and, say he is unable to pass a mirror
without taking a sideways glance. No matter,
say his admirers-the image is worthy of
the man.
The legends of public relations, including
men like Ivy Lee, Edward L. Bernays and
Ben Sonnenberg, and companies like Hill &
Knowlton, Carl Byoir and Burson-Marsteller,
may soon be eclipsed by the organization
welded together by a stylish, friendly, white-
haired fellow named Bob Gray.
Today, four years after it opened its doors,
Gray and Co. is bringing in $20 million a
year in billings for public relations, lobby-
ing, entree and whatever else a corporate
bigwig or well-heeled special-interest group
wants from Washington.
The man who did it all, Robert Keith Gray,
5' 9", 148 pounds, is an elegant dresser, con-
servative or, as one associate kidded, "He's
elegant if you can call a man who always
wears a blue suit with a white shirt and
striped tie elegant."
Gray laughs it off. "I wear dark suits
because I can go on to whatever evening
affair is scheduled, unless it's black tie,
without going home to change." The few
times he's worn a light suit or checked
jacket, he says, people who know
him have been concerned that
something was wrong.
Yet Gray can put on blue
jeans and a sweater, or west-
ern wear when he's throw-
ing a cowboy-type party,
and still look as neat and
well groomed as if he had
just stepped out of a good
tailor shop. But he claims
that he buys his clothes
wherever he happens
to be, here or abroad,
whenever he has a cou-
ple of hours between
planes. A few tucks and
a 39 regular off-the-
rack fits.
Gray started turning
gray when he got out
of the Navy after World
War II, and the process
continued through Har-
vard and his years in the
White House as Eisenhow-
er's appointments secretary
and later Cabinet secretary.
He went white at age 4S; today,
he regrets only that people no
longer call it "prematurely ara)t u

sometimes taken as a sian or wis-
dom, is always seen as a sign or

Albert Hunt is the Washington bureau
chief of The Wall Street Journal, a resp;:cted
journalist with a respected newspaper. He's
42 now, but his hair went white before he
was 30. He started with the Journal in
Boston 20 years ago, moved on to Wash-
ington in 1969, and began proving himself
in one of the toughest assignments in town,
Capitol Hill. Eventually, the ultimate prize
of Washington bureau chief came a couple
years ago.
Hunt is married to Judy Woodruff, Wash-
ington correspondent for the PBS "Mac-
Neil/Lehrer News Hour." They have one
small son.
How does Hunt feel about being included
in this group of white-haired achievers?
Embarrassed. He likes to report the story,
not be a part of it, he says. What about his
frequent appearances on "Washington Week
in Review" and other news-panel TV shows?
That's different, he says, presumably be-
cause he is appearing with his professional
colleagues and peers, not singled out.
As to whether he is well groomed, well
turned out, stylish, elegant? He might say
okay to the rtrst two and guffaw at the last.
The stereotype of the rumpled newsman is
hard to live down, and ever since Clifton
Daniel of The Ntw lbrk n,_ left town,
fashion plates have been bard to pinpoint in
the ranks of the news media.
But his wife Judy disqrees: .. I think he'
an elegant man," she says firmly ... White-
haired men are the most brDliant, the sex-
iest and have the best personalities. At least,
AI is all of those thinp-and you can pick
him out in a crowd."
Another vote for the silver thatch.
When a Republican White House wants
to put some muscle behind its legislative
program on Capitol Hill, they tend to turn
to a tall, handsome, white-haired gentle-
man-there seems to be no other word -
named Max Friedersdorf, newly appointed
special assistant to the president. A man
of varied governmental service, he served
presidents Ford and Nixon, sat out the
Carter administration on the Senate Repub-
lican Policy Committee and as chairman of
the Federal Elections Commission, then led
the fight for President Reagan's programs
during his critical first year of his first term.
But his 18-hour days began taking their
toll, and Friedersdorf was appointed consul
in Bermuda for a change of pace. From
there, he went to a vice presidency in the
PepsiCo organization and was drafted back
to the White House when Reagan took his
second oath of office in January.
Says David Swanson, who worked under
Friedersdorf on the Reagan legislative team:
"It's remarkable in this town to find some-
one who's univenally liked and respected.
Max has a profound respect for the leaisla-
tive process. He's totally dedicated to aov-
emment. I wu a Senate staffer before I
came to work for him, but he taught me
more about how you work with senators
and bow you represent the president than
I could have imqined. He' a areat leader,
and a tremendous aentleman."
Frieclendorf' hu been drivina a yellow
Porscbe 914 for 10 years. He loves to play
aolf, and hu probably played every course
within 50 mDes of the White House. His
hair turned from blond to white, so there'
always been the hint of a snowy thatch
atop his 6-foot-plus frame. He buys his
IUHINOTON DOsSIER I APRIL 1985 l3
suits off the rack in various Washington
stores, and always manages to look digni-
fied and smartly turnea out. He's 54-
"Same age as Clint Eastwood," he says.
Is he elegant? Here's how a White House
colleague, a woman, answers the question:
"It's not his clothes. T}le man himself
is elegant. He's kind
1
he's thoughtful, he
listens, he has a beautiful wife, a long-time
marriage .... He's elegant from the inside
out."
Running the department of corrections
for the District government is enough to
turn any man's hair white. Actually, Jim
Palmer, the city's corrections chief, has been
snow white since age 25. Thday, at 55, he
presides over a $140 million budget, 2,500
employees and about 9,000 prisoners, incar-
cerated and on parole.
In the old Grinke Elementary School in
Northwest Washington, which was converted
into the department of corrections in 1982,
Palmer, a Washington native, works in what
used to be his fifth-grade classroom. Refur-
bished with French provincial furniture
turned out by prisoners at Lorton Reform-
atory, the office is a far cry from the movie
stereotype of an inner-city law enforcement
operation: Palmer's executive assistant Vic-
toria Prescoli speaks three languages and
came to D. C. Corrections from the State
Department.
A close friend and admirer of Palmer is
Channel 4 news anchor Jim Vance, who
met Palmer during the July 1974 four-day
siege at the District courthouse cell-block
area. Palmer was deputy U.S. marshal at
the time.
Vance and two other community celeb-
rities were the only ones allowed in. despite
one of the inmates calling hinr ". . . a tool
of the white-controlled media. •• Through-
out the arduous and dangerous houn of
threats and nqotiations, Vance says he
gained a respec:t for Palmer that has inten-
sified over the years.
In all that he does, Palmer considera his
white hair an asset. "It's my trademark. It
sets me apart," he said.
So do his clothes. At 16 he was designated
one of Washington's best dressed men. a
sobriquet he has carried into his adult life.
His 6 •J•. 172-pound frame fits perfec:tly
into most designer suits, although his favor-
ites are those by CaneUi (pictured at riaht).
He also favors Ferragarno shoes and
custom-made shirts with his initials on
the cuffs.
Impeccably groomed at all times. Palmer
goes to his bair stylist-Modesta at Head-
start-every week to have a haircut and
manicure. His fuhion consultant is Louis
O'Connor at Bloominadale's in 'JYson's
Comer, · who sees to it that this silver-
thatched pubUc servant looks his best.

BY DOM BONAFEDE
But never before has having the right
contacts paid so many so well. And never
before has it generated the power that the
public relations industry wields in this town
today.
Its computer-age practitioners-epito-
mized by Robert Keith Gray, who, with his
perfectly styled white hair and handsomely
tailored dark-oxford suits-suggests a cul-
tured pearl set in onyx, are drawn from
among some of the most celebrated in gov-
ernment, law and journalism.
Even Deputy Chief of Staff Mike Deaver
will leave the White House to return to the
big bucks business of public relations in
Washington. Says former New York con-
gressman Seymour Halpern, "Washington

is overrun with PR firms. It's known as
an influence market, the hub of power."
In the nation's oapital, public <ela-
tions is less concerned with hyping a con-
sumer product-"where to put the balloons
in the shopping center," in the words of
Steve Rabin, of Ogilvy & Mather-than

lative lobbying, public affairs counseling,

media promotion and social matchmaking.
lot of people in the business don't
want to use the term 'public relations,'
preferring instead to call themselves public
affairs counselors or communications spe-
cialists," said Vic Kamber, of the Kainber
Group. "But it's all the same, whether
it's done by a lawyer like Tommy Boggs,
a political consultant like Anne Wexler or
a PR guy like Bob Gray."
Former Reagan White House aide Joe
Canzeri, who has opened his own public
relations office in Washington, prefers to
think of himself as a "facilitator. You have
to keep in mind that California is glitter,
New York is money and Washington is
power," he said. "If you've been in the
administration, you have access to a lot of
contacts, and what I try to do for my clients
is to get them through the system quicker
than they would otherwise."
In the old days when characters like Maj.
Gen. Harry H. Vaughan, a poker-playing
crony of President 'fruman bestowed gifts
of home freezers to Administration officials,
it was called influence peddling; today, with
Washington a more sophisticated place, it
is euphemistically referred to as access, or to
be even more au courant, communications.
Modesty aside, its practitioners emphasize
their familiarity with the capital's esoteric
tribal rites and political peculiarities and
advertise themselves as specialists in issue
analysis, media relations, lobbying tech-
niques, coalition building and grass-roots
mobilization. Some, such as Mary Pettus
& Associate$, specialize in the orchestration
of elegant dinner parties and other types
of social galas that attract the creme de Ia
creme of the Washington scene. Others be-
come established as producers of corporate-
sponsored cultural events, a trademark of
Rogers and Cowan, where Muffie Brandon,
former White House social secretary to Nancy
Reagan, puts to good use her intimacy with
Washington's high society.
As Joe Laitin, veteran government press
and public affairs officer and now a private
consultant, observed, "What's important is
that clients believe you have access." Thus,
as with so many aspects of Washington, the
perception is as significant as reality, the
illusion as authentic as the event. Access-
or what passes for it-may be only one
element in Washington public relations but
anyone without it might as well close shop.
w tho tn>do, Bob Gn>y,
a former Cabinet secretary in the Eisen-
hower White House is recognized as the
high priest of access, provoking a mixture
of resentment and envy among his com-
petitors. Quitting Hill & Knowlton after
20 years and starting his own firm with 14
employees in March 1981, he has in only
four years built one of the biggest, flashiest
28 WASHINGTON DOSSIER I APRIL 1985
and most profitable public-relations opera-
tions in the country, largely because of his
reputation as an "insider" with a direct
pipeline to Washington's premier policy-
makers-and his recruitment of "stars."
Those whose serve under his imprimatur
include Frank Mankiewicz, former press
secretary to Sen. Robert Kennedy and head
of National Public Radio, Gary Hymel,
longtime administrative assistant to House
Speaker Thomas P. (Tip) O'Neill Jr., and
former postmaster general William Bolger.
Alejandro Orfila, former secretary general
of the Organization of American States,
who allegedly joined Gray and Co. even
before he left the OAS, recently left the
firm.
On this day, Gray is seated in a glass-
enclosed, upstairs corner office in a George-
town building- called Power House be
cause it is a remodeled generating plant
-from where he oversees his operations
amid an eclectic profusion of green plants,
antique furniture and state-of-the-art com-
munications gear. "It's important to have
access but not unique to have it," he re-
marks. "In Washington, it's a perishable
commodity; if you misuse it, you lose it.
If you represent important people on im-
portant issues, you have access regardless
of the administration. If we have access,
and I'm proud to think we do, it's because
we don't misuse it."
Strategically placed on tables and desks
are numerous portraits of past and present
Washington political potentates, including
one of the president and first lady and
another of Edwin Meese, James Baker and
Michael Deaver when they served as the
mighty White House "troika."
H a,;,g a White Hou" con-
nection is unquestionably a profitable asset
in Washington public relations. In recent
years there has been a veritable revolving
door between the White House and the
capital's PR offices. Deaver, Reagan's dep-
uty staff chief and media stage director,
was a partner in the West Coast public
relations firm of Deaver & Hannaford,
whose main revenue-producing client was
then former California governor Ronald
Reagan; Larry Speakes, principal deputy
press secretary, was formerly with Hill &
Knowlton; Craig Fuller, former Cabinet
liaison recently named chief of staff to
Vice President Bush, was an executive with
Deaver & Hannaford; Sheila Thte, Mrs.
Reagan's press secretary, who once worked
at Hill & Knowlton, left not long ago to
return to the business as a senior vice
president with Burson-Marsteller, the na-
tion's largest public relations firm. And
former White House political director Lyn
Nofziger has teamed with Mark Bragg in a
new PR firm.

Can one tiny Georgetown gallery
promote the culture of the entire
Arab world here?
BY VIOLA DRATH
30 WASHINGTON DOSSIER I APRIL 198S
A
!if, you might want to know, is the
first letter of the Arabic alphabet.
Appropriately, the Alif Gallery at
31st and M streets chose the name
when it launched in 1983 the first
showplace of Arab contemporary art and
culture in Washington.
In contrast to other galleries, the Alif,
home and flagship of the Arab-American
Cultural Foundation, is a showplace with a
mission. It is not commercial. As the foun-
dation's executive director, Dr. Anita Baker,
points out, its goal is "to share the many
aspects of Arabian culture, its rich heritage
and endless varieties, with the broadest spec-
trum of the American community." With a
background in Arabic language and litera-
ture, Baker was last fall recruited to sharpen
the foundation's profile and help the finan-
cially troubled organization stand on its
own feet.
While no particular public is addressed in
the gallery's rotating exhibits of contem-
porary works by Arab and Arab-American
artists, Baker stresses that many of the cul-
tural events organized around the shows
are directed toward young people. By sched-
uling a sahra (soiree) for instance, she hopes
to create a certain ambience by inviting
young people from the featured country to
bring their American friends for an evening
of music, dance, poetry or storytelling.
But one does not need a sahra to get a
whiff of Arabian atmosphere at the Alif.
The subtle effects of Arab civilization meet-
ing the West can be ascertained at any of
1Wo examples of Arab artistry are "Fantasia" by Moroccan-born Abdenbi El Amine Demnati,
left, and "The Night Horseman" by Iraqi artist Suaa AI-Attar, above. Al-Attar's works were on
display at the Ali/ Gallery last December. Demnati's paintings, including this one celebrating Mororcan
horsemanship, currently are on display at the gallery.

its exhibitions. The influence of postmodem
western painting and sculpture on Arab
artists, often steeped in ancient traditions,
can indeed produce spellbinding results. Or
as encountered in one recent show of the
fanciful stylized compositions by Baghdad-
born Suad Al-Attar, they can be pure en-
chantment. Recalling Assyrian reliefs and
medieval Arabian tapestries, these lush gar-
dens of paradise convey a deceptive quietude
with their luminous flowers, peacocks, flower
hunters, palm trees and other enigmatic
Mesopotamian motifs. At the same time
they clearly relate to contemporary pattern
painting.
In a darker mood, this London-based
artist reveals an affinity for the celebrated
contemporary nightmares of Dublin-born
Francis Bacon in a series of moody paint-
ings of women with serenely floating heads
a window through which Washingtonians
can get a glance at contemporary Arab
culture.
Oddly enough, the oil-rich Arabs, so pow-
erful that they once were able to shake
the mighty economies of the West to their
very foundations, were neglectful about call-
ing attention to their considerable cultural
assets.
What better way to counteract their nega-
tive image, especially in the nation's capital
where the impact of so much that is done
is translated into political terms. Incredibly,
no such effort was made until 1978 when
a group of concerned Arabs and Arab-
Americans launched the Arab-American
Cultural Foundation. Its purpose: "to ex-
tend and deepen the knowledge of Arab
culture, particularly modem Arab culture,
among the people of the United States."
Three women intimately involved with the operation of the A/if Gallery review some of the works
on hand. From left are: Dr. Anita Baker, executive director of the Arab-American Cultural Founda-
tion; Afaf Zurayk, art manager; and Lorraine Parsons, administrative secretary at the gallery.
above shattered bodies, which could just
as easily derive from her Iraqi experience
as from her absorption of western imagery.
Another exhibited artist, Dia al Azzawi,
also works in England. But even though his
huge abstract themes are artictllated in a
bold cubistic vocabulary, they remain firmly
rooted in the Sumerian and Islamic traditions
of his native Iraq. Incorporating calligra-
phy-a word or phrase written in Arabic
-these powerful canvases with their vibrant
colors, strange oriental rhythms and symbols
have an unmistakable edge to them, a ten-
sion springing from the compelling mix of
formal western art concepts and Arabic
content.
Not surprisingly, Baker discerns a greater
interest in Arab art among Americans now
than in recent history. Still, unlike the mount-
ing number of Arabian restaurants in our
town, the Alif is the only gallery serving as
32 WASHINGTON DOSSIER I APRIL 198S
Strictly nonpolitical and nonprofit, the foun-
dation set out to provide Americans with a
direct experience of as wide a range of Arab
culture as possible in order to broaden the
understanding of the Arab people.
It invited performing artists, musicians,
poets and painters, as well as scholars and
writers from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon,
Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Sudan and Syria,
who fascinated their audiences with the unique
interaction of ancient Arab cultural tra-
ditions and contemporary western artistic
expressions. In concert with Arab-Americans
and western experts of the Arab world, these
artists found a platform at such places as
the World Bank, the Barns at Wolf 'frap
and Georgetown University, a leader in con-
temporary Arab studies. But no matter how
successful their appearances, it did not es-
cape the foundation's founding fathers that
they had made little progress in extending
their base and that reaching a wider Anter·
can public would require a long-term e.
Eventually an all-out effort at
visibility was made in 1983. Under the chaJI';
manship of Hisham Sharabi, a
of European history at Georgetown lllt

icans traveling abroad who are enjoying
more buying power than they've had in
years. But the biggest beneficiaries of the
stronger dollar have been the banks in coun-
tries dependent on exports to the United
States. All of them have come to hold the
bulk of their assets in dollars and also
have been positioned to exploit the situa-
tion by dumping undreamed-of new bargains
into America's markets. After all, the more
expensive the dollar, the cheaper goods priced
in foreign currencies become in dollar markets.
Our nonstop import boom proves it.
The losers have been U.S. manufacturers
whose products have become priced not
only ou of overseas markets but also out
of their own communities. Heavy losers,
too, have been the big money players-
U.S. and foreign banks included- who on
the advice of their most trusted advisers
have been playing spit-in-the-wind. They
have bet against the dollar, speculating on
outdated theories portending its fall, instead
of recognizing the new realities responsible
for its strength. Even Soviet banks, whose
record of taking advantage of capitalist con-
fusion is legendary, have been mutilated by
stepping on their own land mines touched
off by failed raids on the U.S. dollar.
Market behavior, though conditioned by
the old rules, has responded to the new
facts of financial life. At the root of the
dollar's persistent strength is the perception
throughout the world that the United States
has the only political system stable enough
to support a vigorous economy. What the
financial bigwigs have ignored is the fear
of capital loss that has taken the place of
greed for earnings as the driving force in
the marketplace. This momentous switch
has changed the traditional rules of finan-
cial market behavior. Since safety is now
more important than gain in the risk-ridden
money game, there has been no safe harbor
to con;tpete with the U.S. dollar; certainly
not With the alternatives paying less than
half as well, if at all.
Meanwhile gold, traditionally the con-
ventional alternative, has lost its luster. The
old argument for a gold standard figured
that the price of gold was stable, and that
money backed by it would be stable too.
This was true as long as the basis of gold's
stability, its presumed scarcity, remained un-
changed. The trouble began in the early
1970s, when the price of gold got caught
up in the undertow of the runaway price
of oil. When it jumped from 85 cents to
$40 a barrel, and gold followed with a jump
from $35 to $800 an ounce, pickaxes started
separating anything that glittered yellow
from the dust all over the world.
When the oil bubble burst, the price of
gold collapsed with it. No doubt both mar-
kets still tempt crapshooters, but they scare
away capital in search of safe sanctuary.
The most sophisticated private bank in Paris
traditionally gold-minded, closed out 1984
dumping all of its considerable holdings
of gold onto the dollar bandwagon.

The Dollar Debacle
Other investment alternatives to the dol-
lar-the Japanese yen, the German mark,
the Swiss franc and sterling-have been
laughed out of contention. The powers that
be in Japan bob the yen up and down like
a yo-yo and keep driving to cheapen it in
order to keep down the price of their exports.
Germany has felt the same pressure to
down the price of German goods in the
U.s." market, but Germans are also buying
up the U.S. dollar as if it were going out
of style.
No doubt the Swiss franc would have
femained the investment target for money
from every trouble spot in the world if not
for a small accident of geography: Zurich
is now only missile minutes away from So-
viet army units in Western Europe. 'llue,
Switzerland is still taking in hot money,
but it is running through a revolving door
into Eurodollars, parkable in the U.S.
neasury notes paying double-digit rates
that have become the safe and smart outlet
for hot surplus cash.
As for sterling, after a few weak and
phony shows of life, it has gen_erally _run
true to form, reflecting the Umted King-
dom's new role as a colony of OPEC and
collapsing accordingly. As oil heads toward
$20 a barrel, sterling is hea!fing under a
dollar. .

has passed with flying colors since last sum-
mer. According to every established rule of
the market, when interest rates fall, the
currency they are paid in falls, too. But
the drop in dollar interest rates has actually
accelerated the inflow of money into dollars
and driven up the exchange value of the
dollar against weaker currencies- as well as
gold. The world apparently got the message:
collecting less in dollars only exposes money
to the risk of winding up with bigger losses
by switching to something else. It is better
to hold onto dollars even if the return is a
little less.
Even the astronomic budget deficit, clearly
responsible for the overabundance of dollars
whirling around the world today, has failed
to inflict the promised punishment for our
fiscal sins. If the law of supply and demand
still ruled the market, the oversupply would
already have dragged the dollar below the
Argentine peso. Instead it has run wild as
if Andrew Mellon were still pointing with
pride to budget surpluses. If nothing else,
the spectacle of the dollar rising with the
supply is a cold, unmistakable warning to
us to give up old theories we can no longer
afford to nourish and switch to a diet of
reality: The dollar is not about to be nudged
or kicked from its new position as the
world's only money.
Commanding the premium that goes with
the role the highly touted intergovernmen-
tal push to cheapen the dollar and stabilize
the other currencies proved to be a nonstarter

BY JACK WYNN
A
few years back, the people who were
dabbling in residential real estate
could hardly wait to tell you about
it. The cocktail party smug index
was at an all-time high.
Today, even small-time investors have
awakened-some of them rudely-to the
one fact the pros never forgot : Residential
real estate in the Washington area has always
been priced to make money as long as it
appreciated rapidly. Granted, through the
mid-'70s the appreciation was so good you
had to strap yourself in to keep from getting
giddy. It was a wild ride. But the recent
recession and prohibitive interest rates com-
bined to make the conversion of paper
profits into real bucks a tougher proposi-
tion. It didn't matter how much money you
were ahead if you couldn't sell or get out
of the deal.
The cocktail party chitchat turned to other
things.
OPPORTUNITY KNOCKING
Is there still money to be made by investing
in Washington area real estate? The answer
to that question is a definite "yes." There
is always money to be made in real estate.
"But now more than ever, you have to
know what you're doing," says Jon J.
Prager, chairman of Finalco Group Inc.,
"Look, they forgot to marbleize the top of that
column," said "Biackie" Auger (seated), partner
in Maywash Associates, which the Ma:y_-
flower Hotel in 1966 for $14 and
spending $65 million on a restoration that wt/1
make it worth over $150 million. Others include
Richard Cohen (left), whose family owns 40 per-
cent of the hotel; Kingdon Gould Jr. (right}, and
the Stouffer Hotel Corp., which manages the
hotel. Bernard Awenenti (center) is the hotel's
general manager.
a McLean tax-advantage investment firm.
"The days when you could simply sit on
the back patio of your Capitol Hill town
house and listen to your equity grow are
over."
According to Prager, there are many
places in the real estate market that remain
attractive investments, but there are also
good reasons for being skittish. "In recent
months, the infusion of more discretionary
capital into the upper-middle-income and
upper-income classes bas caused real estate
partnerships to loom larger on the horizon
than ever before," he points out. "One of
the significant financial advantages of part-
nerships, of course, is that many offer pos-
sibilities for sheltering income as well as
achieving long-term gains."
a general partner organizes a group
of mvestors to pool their resources to buy,
the present tax laws provide them with
attractive depreciation allowances on the
front end and tax credits on April 15. In
the meantime, normal market appreciation
works to make their investment fmancially
attr.active over th.e life of the partnership,
defmed as the penod of time until the prop-
is milked for as much advantage as the
mvestors can gain from it and is sold.
But this "can't lose" type of investment
is shed?ing some of its luster, and many real
estate mvestment specialists, like H. Lynn
Hopewell of Hopewell Rembert Advisors
Inc. in Falls Church, are raising some warn-
ing flags in front of their clients. "Until
the Reagan tax program shakes out,'' says
Hopewell, "we are urging caution." That's
not likely to happen until 1987 when the
Congress sorts out the differences and pref-
erences in the Regan tax plan, the Bradley-
Gephart bill, and the Kemp-Kasten bill, he

The Last Haven of Great City Estates
By S. CLAIRE CONROY
. Behind the brick walls, tall trees and
Circular driveways along Foxhall Road lie
the sprawling and secluded enclaves of some
or the city's wealthiest residents. Contem-
Porary architectural marvels and elegant
mansions mark the hilly road between
eservoir Road and Nebraska Avenue NW
the last bastion of privately held estates
ill Washington. Many are still in the hands
their original owners who, by refusing
bo leave, have kept new development at
.ay and the address one of the most exclu-
Sive in the nation's capital.
1
Easy access to Georgetown, the down-
business corridors and the Kennedy
enter has drawn such luminaries to the
as 'freasury Secretary James Baker,
Danker Joseph Allbritton and arts patron
avid Lloyd Kreeger. .
t ''When my wife and I began searching

a site for our house, we looked in Be-
s· esda, Potomac and Chevy Chase. But
Since we frequently attend the National
/lllPhony at the Kennedy Center and par-
in town, my wife wanted to be closer
f ,'' says Kreeger. In 1961, the Kreegers
ll
011
nd their ideal location in the six-acre
0
°XhaU Road estate of Olga Roosevelt
raves just below Dexter Street.
G l'he Kreegers tore down the Graves' 1930s
Othic mansion and built what the Ameri-
I.nstitute of Architects' "Guide to the
chitecture of Washington" calls "a rare
example of the client as a
s atron of architecture rather than as a con-
I
11
tner of the products of the shelter indus-
?'' Architects Philip Johnson and Richard
designed the Italian travertine and
Ce ige limestone villa with its triple-domed
r lltrai hall to accommodate the Kreegers'
art collection and chamber music
ncerts.
th Many Foxhall Road area residents say
chose the area for its country feeling.
ar en Elizabeth Diamond, a Realtor and
Shea resident, first came to Washington,
It e and her husband stayed on the former
IV?ckefeller estate, "I couldn't believe it,
IVith all the land and trees around I thought
Soe Were in the country." The view from
lh me of the estates is also spectacular. ''From
sculpture garden, when the leaves are
ll the trees," says Kreeger, "we can see
illast Georgetown to the Washington Monu-
and across the Potomac to Virginia."
IV he road was named for Henry Foxall,
r ho llloved to Washington in 1800 at the
thquest of Thomas Jefferson and became
lb e Preeminent manufacturer of arms for
11
e Young government. Spring Hill Farm,
ow the site of Foxhall Village, was Fox-
hall's homestead and most of the area around
his namesake road was farm country. Among
the largest was the Palisades dairy farm,
now the site of Mount Vernon College. An-
other was the Whitehaven farm, which be-
came the estate of Nelson Rockefeller. Like
most of the other houses along the road,
the Rockefeller manse, now the home of
Sargent Shriver, was built in the early 1930s.
But the more impressive house of the period
belongs to Marjorie Phillips, widow of the
late Duncan Phillips who founded the Phil-
lips Collection. The house is on what is
most telling sign is the development of the
28-acre Rockefeller estate into a subdivi-
sion of upscale houses designed by Arthur
Cotton Moore. About 50 houses have al-
ready been completed and another 28 are
going up as Foxhall Crescents West Gate.
Previous houses sold in the $400,000 range,
but the new homes will sell for between
$560,000 and $625,000. Rumor has it that
future models may be in the $1 million
range. Other houses along Foxhall Road
rarely come on the market, but when they
do the smaller ones toward Nebraska Avenue
The 30-room Belgian ambassador's residence is a replica of the Hotel de Charolais in Paris.
probably the largest private estate within
the city limits.
The 18-acre Phillips estate at Foxboro
Street called Dun-Mar-Lin (after Duncan,
Marjorie and their son Laughlin) features
a mansion built with handmade Virginia
brick. The Phillips commissioned architect
Nathan Wyeth to design the mansion to
complement their premier collection of
modern art.
Foxhall Road's mansions were not only
suited to art collections, they were also
designed for entertaining in grand Wash-
ington style. Among them, the Belgian am-
bassador's residence has seen some of the
most glittering affairs. Built as an exact
replica of the Hotel de Charolais in Paris,
the 30-room mansion was purchased by
the Belgian government in 1945. Another
wonderful backdrop for Washington parties
has been the 1930s contemporary white brick
mansion of Gwendolyn Cafritz, a prominent
Washington philanthropist.
Still another Foxhall Road landmark is
the 28-acre Mount Vernon College, which
was built in 1946 as a seminary for women.
Change has been slow to come to Foxhall
Road, but it is coming nonetheless. The
begin at $250,000.
Apart from Mount Vernon College and
nearby American University, there aren't
many schools in the area. Many parents
send their children to the public Horace
Mann elementary school at 44th and Newark
streets NW and then on to one of Wash-
ington's private schools. As for grocery
shopping, a favorite for many residents is
Sutton Place Gourmet on New Mexico Ave-
nue, but there is also a Safeway on Mac-
Arthur Boulevard. For clothes shopping and
the like, the department stores at Friend-
ship Heights and Spring Valley and the
many boutiques in Georgetown are only
minutes away.
Meanwhile the future of Foxhall Road
as the home to Washington's great estates
is uncertain. Many residents and Realtors
forsee the gradual break up of more larger
tracts into subdivisions like Foxhall Cres-
cents, but only time will tell. "The rumors
of the possible break up of the Phillips
estate is no surprise," says David Lloyd
Kreeger, "It's inevitable with these big estates
that the heirs will sell them off, otherwise
how could they choose which one of them
gets to live in the house?"

There are three things to look for

orlienry A. Berliner, chairman of the Board
C the Pennsylvania Avenue Development
t'orporation and president of Second Na-
Building and Loan, puts it in more
Ill Odern terms: "Every real estate invest-
ought to begin with a property's unique

it will always have. It is America's Main
Street. The problem becomes how to capital-
ize on that asset, not how to ·create wealth
from nothing.
"Historically, the most attractive invest-
ment areas around the city have been places
where people have enhanced existing assets.
Thday we are doing it on Pennsylvania Ave-
nue by adding parks, recreation, cultural
activities and a retail infrastructure. That is
going to make the Pennsylvania Avenue,
Massachusetts Avenue, 13th Street triangle
a prime area for mixed-use investment-
offices, apartment buildings, town houses,
hotels, that sort of thing."
As Berliner points out, this is the same
pattern that took Georgetown from being a
seedy, end-of-the-trolley-line neighborhood
to the vital area it is today. Residents and
investors capitalized on Georgetown's unique
assets: the C&O Canal, Georgetown Uni-
versity, and the historic value attached to
many of its buildings.
In Old Thwn Alexandria, the asset that
payed the biggest dividends was Colonial
history. In Adams-Morgan, the unique asset
is the vitality of its artist colony atmosphere,
spiced with ethnic diversity in .its shops and
restaurants. In Annapolis, it has always been
the unique asset of the harbor.
Asked where he sees the next possibilities
emerging, Berliner points to the Anacostia
waterfront. it's a unique asset. It's
a waterway that spills into a harbor area.
It has the Navy Yard and surrounding neigh-
borhoods to provide the human factor, the

highly usable space."
Berliner adds a caveat about real estate
investing. "From what I have seen of suc-
cessful development " he says ''what makes
' ' h t
a development work, and therefore w a
makes investment profitable, is people car·
ing about what they invest in. If, as an t
investor, you are sensitive to your commu·
nity you get a Jot more out of it the more
of yourself you put into it. Responsible real
estate investment means following your
money with your heart."
THE HISTORIC DIMENSION
A new dimension to the local real estate
investment picture and something the
predict will be well protected under the
tax laws is investing in historic properties.
"Historic properties" doesn't mean trr
ing to buy a piece of Stephen Decatur
House. The tax laws look at any house thad
is more than 30 years old as "historic,"
provides a 15 percent tax credit on rehabJli·
tation expenditures, a nice up-front advall;
tage for investors with tax problems. If the
property is more than 40 years old, the\
is a 20 percent credit; a 25 percent
goes with a property that is "certified hiS·

"There are a lot of unsophisticated clients
Who think that if you have big names they'll
have influence on Capitol Hill... . Most
Of these public relations firms handle prob-
lems dealing with legislation or regulatory
Provisions. But that is not a total public
relatiops service, as I see it."
Gray, ever cool, is unperturbed by the
slings and arrows: "I've always felt that it
Was essential to have well-known people on
the staff, to warehouse them if necessary
Until you find out how they fit in,'' he
remarked. "When I was at Hill & Knowlton,
the chairman said, 'We don't want stars.' I
thought then that's all I want, a galaxy of
stars who have excellent reputations. They
are magnets for new but I don't
hire them for that alone. They must be of
a caliber that they'll attract business or I
Wouidn 't hire them at all."
On her part, Pettus resents allegations
that she hired Carolyn Deaver because of
her name value. Yet a Wall Street Journal
article in early January reported that Mrs.
Deaver "has become an almost overnight
success as a public relations consultant,
despite a previous lack of experience." The
newspaper stated that among the accounts
she brought in were the Republican National
Committee and the Murdock Development
Corp., which owns Washington's Hay-Adams
liotel and has Watergate figure H. R. Hal-
deman as one of its chief executives.
From behind her desk in her 15th Street
Office, enlivened with various artists' inter-
Pretations of the Mona Lisa, Pettus explained,
''I
hired Carolyn for a specific purpose,
she is an art history J;llajor, knows Washing-
ton entertaining and has been exposed to
Politics."
Continuing, Pettus said, "I don't lobby
and for me to have Carolyn, there's an
Upside and a downside .. .. I've had people
me with illusions that I could get them
Invited to state dinners. I have to tell them
that I don't supply that service."
Be that as it may, th"' ''little
doubt that while Ronald Reagan is in the
House the Deaver name will exert
pulling power. Still remembered

Lehman, and Selwa Roosevelt, the State
Department's chief of protocol.
Then there was the. grand opening of the

which was a formal dinner at the residence
of the Italian ambassador. Guests included

and a reporter from Women's Wear Daily,
the fashion publication, who confessed,
"When Carolyn Deaver calls, I go."

fined public relations as "unacknowledged
advertising." So it was perhaps inevitable
that in a social culture reared to perceive
the fantasy images on TV as the real world,
the public relations industry would groW
beyond the wildest dreams of its practitionerS·
Canzeri contends that modern PR is
simply "an idea whose time has come.''
Others, however, attribute the growth to
more practical reasons. Hannaford suggests
that the Carter administration's regulatorY
reforms and anti-business posture prompted
members of the corporate community to
enlist the services of public relations
experts to push their causes in the inner
circles of government and through the news
media.
Eventually, the constant encroachment of
public relations into the area of public policY
broadened its reach and expanded its visi·
bility. Today, a thin line exists in Washington
between public relations, lobbying and JaW
firms that promote the ambitions of Fortune
500 corporations and foreign governmentS·
Often, the diverse disciplines are merged
under one roof. Gray and Co., althougb
hardly typical, lists 28 registered lobbyists
and seven lawyers among its 97 employeeS·
In the vanguard of the new wave, GraY
conceives PR and lobbying as being mutuallY
compatible. With his flamboyant life style
and talent for garnering prominent press
coverage, he has rocked Washington's PF
industry and made a fortune: his firm boasts
an estimated 160 clients and his billings are
pegged at more than $12 million.
"We came in at a time when national
issues were cascading," he explains. "PubliC
relations was then almost exclusively in the
hands of lawyers. I was convinced that Job·
bying should be done by professional com·
municators and that public relations should

Rabin stressed, "In Washington, you sell
counseling. The more you move into public
affairs the higher the profits. Your com-
Petitors are law firms, you deal with impor-
issues involving big dollars and your bill-
lllgs are higher."
The most sought-after PR firms, such
as Gray and Co., may charge as much as
$3{)() to $400 an hour for the services of
the principal executive, plus a specified
amount of staff work. The minimum cor-
Porate fee levied by many PR firms is $5,000
Almost always, the cost is figured
Ill advance and is largely dependent on the
strategy devised and the manpower required.
But since PR firms frequently deal in
as in the promotion of good
Wtll , it is sometimes difficult to tell whether
the client is getting his money's worth. At
Other times, especially when legislative or
regulatory issues are at stake, the winners
and losers are clearly defined. It was abun-
dantly evident, for instance, that in 1980 the
American 1tucking Association, represented
by Bill & Knowlton, lost its fight against
trucking deregulation.
p ln?icative of the industry's growth, the
Ublic Relations Society of America reported
that membership in its metropolitan-area
chapters has jumped from 504 to 724 mem-
last year. Kamber noted that his opera-
leaped from three to 60 employees

WASHINGTON DOSSIER I APRIL 1985 87
Introducing
BUFF AID
AFTER SLIPPING PERILOUSLY CLOSE TO
extinction 100 years ago, the buffalo is back
-and roaming into some of the Washington
area's classiest restaurants and gourmet food
stores.
As everything from strip steaks to sirloin
tips to juicy burgers, the symbol of the
American plains is tempting sophisticated
palates with its tender red meat and win-
ning them over with its beef-like flavor and
low cholesterol.
Says Chef Jeffrey Bleaken of Chaucers
restaurant in the Canterbury Hotel, "Guests
enjoy it and return for more. And the plates
come back to the kitchen clean."
Not surprisingly, the flrst to serve up the
wilderness game three years ago was Dom-
inique's, which has introduced Washington
to such other exotic novelties as rattlesnake
meat.
But dozens of other flne area restaurants
have ridden herd to feature it in recent
months, including: the Tivoli and the new
Windows restaurant in Rosslyn, the Com-
pany Inkwell in Vienna, The Iron Skillet in
Falls Church, Chalet de Ia Paix in Arlington,
The Old Angler's Inn in Potomac and La
Colline, Le Jardin, Jean Louis at the Water-
gate and Maison Blanche in Washington.
Chef Klaus Helmin at the Tivoli calls it
"a very good seller because it's lean and

fork in St. Mark pattern by Buccel/ati; buffalo

Rockville.

tender and can be served equally well broiled
or sauteed."
Hotel restaurant chefs are equally en-
thusiastic. According to Paul L. Chapman
of Food Tech International in Bethesda, the
only East Coast distributor authorized by
the National Buffalo Association, a few
hotel orders are averaging $3,000 a month.
His hotel clients to date? The Four Seasons,
Hay-Adams, Hyatt Regency, 1Ysons Marri-
ott, The Regent, Mayflower, the Sheraton
Washington, Vista International and the
Washington Hilton.
Gourmands and health-food advocates
alike are calling it the meat of the '80s. The
difficulty is in getting people to take the
frrst taste, say connoisseurs. Leaner and
substantially lower in cholesterol than beef,
it could conquer the craving for a thick,
juicy steak with a close taste substitute that
the USDA says has less cholesterol than
either chicken or tuna.
According to Diane B. Stoy, operations
director of the LIPID Research Clinic at
George Washington University Medical
Center, buffalo meat is also higher in pro-
tein, vitamins and minerals than beef.
Though its relative scarcity on the market
makes it more expensive than beef, there is
less waste in cooking because of the lower
fat content. Supplier Chapman said chopped
buffalo retails at about the price of lean
groUnd beef-$2.79 per pound-and rib-
eyes run about 15 percent higher than the
fmest cuts of beef. The biggest price differ-
ence-about 65 percent-is between ten-
derloin of buffalo and beef because buffalo
have less tenderloin than cattle.
While the February issue of Gourmet
magazine features a column that tou:s
"beefalo," a specially bred hybrid of catt e
and buffalo as a new food trend, Chap!Tiall
says beefalo has a cholesterol level closer
to beef's than buffalo's. .
Local retail stores that carry buffalo

Cooking tips from the experts: Since bU t
falo meat is lower in fat, it requires less bell
or less time to cook. As with all red meats.
especially lean ones, it will toughen if over·
cooked, so it is best served rare or

None of this would have been poss1bl

30 years ago, when these lumbering 'S
were still protected. Gradually the nauon
buffalo population has been brought
from the mere 200 that were counted
1895 after American frontiersmen blithelY
harvested hides in such massive quantities
that the animal nearly became extinct. .

CAROL CUTLER CRITIQUES:
EAST WIND
A Breeze of Exotic Vietnanuse Cuisine
East Wind ! A:.
809 King St., Old Town, Alexandria
836-1515
'JYpe of Cuisine:
Vietnamese.
Quality of Cooking:
Very good. Deft use of spices and herbs.
Specialties:
Cha Gio (deep-fried meat-filled rice-paper
rolls), minced shrimp on crab claws, grilled
lemon chicken, scallop saute.
Decor:
Soft pastel colors mixed with wood and
bamboo furnishings create a tasteful,
modern oriental atmosphere. Bamboo
dividers separate the dining room into three
distinct areas. There is also a separate room
in back.
Ambience:
Calm reigns throughout, even when filled
to capacity. Generous space between tables
accommodates lively groups next to those
who prefer quieter conversation.
Service:
Generally very polite and caring, although
waiters often disappear for long periods
and on occasion have difficulty understand-
ing English.
Dress Code:
Anything from business dress to casual.
Waiting:
Usually no problem. There are chairs at the
bar, if needed.
Price:
Moderate. Lunch and dinner priced the
same. Dinner for two with wine, tip and
tax, about $50.
Wine List:
Modest wine list at sensible prices: Jadot
Macon Blanc, $16; Louis Latour Beaujolais,
$13. Emphasis on beer-nine kinds from
eight different countries.
Avoid:
Carelessly biting into the deep-fried Cha
Gio rolls, which are usually still super hot
inside. Also parties of more than six; food
tends to be served tepid and less crisp to
larger groups.
Special Touches:
Fresh floral table arrangements, each one
different. Printed recipes for two popular
dishes- Cha Gio and Grilled Lemon
Chicken.
Critic's Last Word:
Go East.
A
n old Vietnamese proverb says an
east wind brings good fortune. Cer-
tainly some good luck blew this way
in 1980, when this restaurant named after
the zephyr opened in Alexandria. For de-
spite the wealth of Vietnamese restaurants
that have opened here in the past few years,
this is the place to explore the intricacies of
Vietnamese cuisine, that wonderful culinary
blend of the exuberance of the Chinese with
the refinement of the French.
This is a restaurant of quiet style, and the
good taste that prevails in its modern orien-
tal decor is mirrored in the kitchen. For
starters, try the famous Vietnamese appe-
tizer Cha Gio, rice-paper wrapped rolls with
a pork-and-crabmeat filling, plunged into
the deep fryer and brought to the table
steaming hot. What beguiles about these
rolls is the alchemy of delicate seasoning,
a trait that runs throughout the entire menu.
Most meat and chicken dishes have been
first marinated in a mysterious blending of
herbs and spices, then grilled briefly and
intensely, assuring a crisp outside and moist
interior. Grilled lemon chicken is a star
among the grilled dishes and one that can
ostensibly be duplicated at home, since the
recipe is available. But don't bet on it.
Like too many other printed recipes, it is
not 100 percent accurate, lacking some of
the mysterious flavoring and the house sauce,
ensuring your return for the real thing.
One consistent failing in the East Wind kit-
chen is the heavy-handed use of catsup,
especially intrusive in the fish dishes and
dominates the otherwise superb stuffed
squid.
There are five desserts, plenty for the end
of a multi-course meal: A choice of two
flambeed fruits, a custard, or two flavors
of ice cream. The ice cream is interesting,
a rich vanilla beautifully flavored with hints
of either suave lychee or brisk ginger and
a nice finish to what is generally some very
good eating.
Open: Lunch Monday through Friday, din-
ner every night.
Credit Cards: All major cards.
