After 3 decades and 40,000 home sales (with a tidy $500 million in increased value to their owners), we have come up with another way to take the worry out of home buying. And home selling. The problem: what do you do with your old home when you want to buy a new one? Do you buy before you sell. or sell before you buy? How can you be sure to have your equity in cash on the day you need it? Whether you choose a new home in one of the many quality developments we represent or select an "experienced" home from the thousands of listings offered through our Maryland and Virginia resale offices, we at Lewis & Silverman have a plan that takes care of the problem for buyer and seller alike. We'll guarantee you'll have your money! Under the Lewis & Silverman Guaranteed Equity Program, our specialists make a standard market evaluation of your present home. We'll give you a complete breakdown of normal selling and transfer costs. There are no arbitrary "discounts." If you agree, we'll list your home. We guarantee in writing the actual net cash you'll receive, and if you wish, the day you'll get it! If your home isn't sold before the time limit, we will advance your equity anyway. Just as we guaranteed it. On the date we promised. The problem of your old home is gone. Another service from Lewis & Silverman, Realtors.

The launching of the American tour of the 57 old master paintings from the Collection of Hans-Heinrich Baron von Thyssen-Bornemisza at the National Gallery could not have been more glamorous. Whatever the financial or tax-connected motives of the collection's current owner, who acquired substantial American business interests in the 'seventies, nobody could have provided him with a better introduction into America's leading circles than Titian's sinister "Doge Francesco Venier," Tintoretto dignified Venetian senator, Carpaccio's dashing young knight or Rubens' seductive Venus. The 57 masterpieces constitute only one-sixth of the famed collection. Yet, despite its general level of high Quality, the collection-at least in this tra elsized edition-remains strangely without profile. The selected treasures from the Villa Favorita convey more about the financial status, the acqui iti enes and the ambition of it owner than his spirit. As presented here, the collection shows the imprint of too many agent , too many consultants eager to grab anything at in estrnent level that appears on the market. Instead of one man's deep love of the arts for art's sake-the glue that hold together other private collections and from which, no matter how flawed, their cohe ive uniquenes is derived-this gathering of old master conveys an aura of impersonality. It does not touch. Unfortunately, the criteria for the selection by John Walker, director emeritu of the National Gallery, remain a secret. At close inspection of the sometimes hea ily restored paintings from Duccio to Goya, hov ever, it appears that the Italian and German madonnas and saints, the portrait , the

an emotional foil for the self-contained Virgin and her Child. According to the catalogue, the Italian schools-over 80 canvases- are now the richest part of the colJection. Although the Ghirlandaio did not make it to our shores, one is easily consoled by Palma Vecchio's extraordinary "Portrait of a Woman, La Bella" which until 1959 graced the collection of Baron douard de Rothschild. The clear, direct glance of the beauty (painted around 1520), her luminous skin and her oluptuousness barely hidden by the sensuous blues and reds of her luxurious dress, communicate nothing less than the joie de vivre of High Renaissance art. Rubens' "Toilette of Venus"-a "copy" after Titian and one of everal versions of this theme-may be the attention-getter among the Netherlandish and Flemish masterpieces. But it is Jan Van Eyck' small trompe l'oeil diptvch, "Angel of the Annunciation," and the "Annunciate," painted en srisaitte in 1436, that fa cinate. Gabriel and the Virgin Annunciate are painted to resemble three-dimensional sculptures resting on octagonal bases in black marble niches. In order to heighten the sculptural illusion, a wing of the angel and architectonic shadows project over the frame mouldings. Highly impressive in its quiet comPOsure is Hans Memling's stunning "Portrait of a Young Man."

It had other connotations years ago... the sons and daughters 0/ the elite being polished to perfection in the great prep schools of America, bred like good race horses to take their places on the fast tracks of political and cultural leadership. It was blatantly elitist and "W.A.S.P. " was the operative denigrating term used by the teeming masses one generation removed from the cattleboat to freedom. But even as America has undergone cataclysmic change, the connotation of the so-called "fancy prep school" remains as true today as in years gone by: a spawning ground for leaders. Its exclusivity has changed somewhat in response to changing mores and the term "preppie" has come into the American lexicon as a complicated mixture 0/ pride, achievement and satire. It is the satire that underlines its maturity. Perhaps it manifests itself in a search for individuality or a wink at tradition. In any case, the term has created a subculture of sorts. With this in mind-but, above all, not to criticize the quality Of education in American prep schools-we Offer the following satire of an American archetype.

"I put beauty fir t, condition econd." ays lraj Eftekhar, manager of the Oriental Gallery at Hecht's, Ty ons Corner, in de cribing what the in e tor in a handmade rug should look for. Eftekhar, who says the State Department brought in He ht's importers from t. Loui to appraise a recentlydonated Persian rug, offers the following tip to in e tment hopper: 1. Beauty, color and pattern are important, and the rarer the better. Even if the rug is in mint ondition, if the color and pattern aren't ignificant, the rug' alue is limited. 2. In e amining the condition of older rug , look for them to be rainfree, \ ith minimum wear. Repair are u uaJly vi ible on the back of the pi e. 3. Generally, the back of the rug should be evenly woven, so that it feels smooth to the touch. Thi , he explains, is a more reliable indicator of the rug's quality than the number of knot per square inch. One rug may have 500 knots, another 150; if the one \\ ith fewer knots is smoother, it's probably the better rug. 4. When you judge by the knots, you mu t consider where the rug was made. An Heriz, with 50 to 80 knots per in h, could be very fine. If it has 300 to 00, it would be ery unusual. A very fine nomad rug, which can be expected to be quite coarse, might ha e only 80 to 150 knot. 5. Don't a sume the rule is "the thicker the better." The finer a Per ian rug, the thinner; in nomad rugs, for example, thickness often is desirable. 6. He urges customers to buy from a reputable dealer. "Good dealers wiu back their merchandise 100 percent.' 7. Arm yourself with information before you shop. One of Eftekhar's favorite sour e is Oriental Rugs and Carpets, by Fabeio Formenton (McGra\' -Hill). "It's a beautiful, e cellent book, with a lot of color plates. It is good e en for the beginner." He recommends Oriental Rugs of the World, by Ian Smith, for "expert ." It con entrates on mu eum-quality pie of the 16th through 18th c nturie • -S.C. 15

A.R.C.O.'s "Drive for Conservation," says changes in driving habits can save up to 30 percent in fuel: 1. Avoid short trips. Autos get their worst mileage during the first 10 miles of the trip because the engine is cold. Combine your errands, shop by phone or mail, patronize establishments within walking distance, carpool and take public transportation. 2. Warm up efficiently. Warm up your car for no longer than it takes for the oil warning light to go off-about 30 seconds. It takes about 20 minutes for your car to reach its peak operating efficiency, so you might as well be driving during that time. 3. Watch your takeoff. Avoid jackrabbit starts, but try to reach your optimum cruising speed (40

fico Anticipate when you'll have to stop instead of hitting the brake at the last minute. 5. Maintain a constant speed. Best fuel savings will occur if you keep the pressure on the gas pedal light and steady. 6. Cut air resistance. Wind re istance is what causes you to use at least 20 percent more gas at 70 m.p.h. than at 55 m.p.h. So stay at the lower peed. Also, avoid driving at 40 m.p.h. or more with the windows open. 7. Reduce the weight. If you're dragging around heavy objects in your car, you're using more gas. 8. Get a tuneup. Regularly check oil, water, plugs, points, thermostat, anti-pollution equipment, filters and wheel bearings and alignment. -J.Z.


On the surface, it was a rip-roaring good time in the good-old-days, goodold Democrats' best fashion. But the achingly apparent fact wa that, a scant 15 years after the John onHumphrey election, the party held to Commemorate it went on without the two larger-than-life principals. The su r vi v m g women and children-Lady Bird, Luci, Lynda with husband Chuck and Muriel, accompanied by son-in-law Bruce Solomonon-stood onstage in front of a backdrop painted to replicate the Lady Bird Special. Lettered ign around the room named some of the campaign train's many station stops. The crowd had come together to reminisce but, while they were clearly thrilled to see the John ons and Muriel, they wouldn't yield the floor while the two women made short speeches. Later, Muriel was per uaded to take a couple turns around the dance floor; "she looks so thin," murmured one woman. Guests like the William Wirtzes, Lloyd Hands Jack aienti, ther Peterson, ancy Dickerson and Leonard Marks, who had put the sentimental journey together, e changed memories with old friend like Betty Talmadge, Rep. Lindy Bogg Pat Harri and Polly backlelon. Barbara Burri remembered being on both the whi tle- top and airplane campaigns with Lady Bird.

Among the highlights of the threeday event were the preview night supper and auction to honor past Christmas Shop chairmen. League President yd Goodwin was there with husband, Bob, and introduced Elene Gill and Jane Blair as the dangerous duo who started the Christmas ShoP back in '68. Other past chairmen and husbands on hand to take bows were Jane and Dick West, Lalla and Clarence Dodge and Sally and Jack Neviu. Other selective shoppers on hand to support the League were Hank and Bo Berliner, Olive and Calvin Cobb, Dr. and Mrs. William H. Cooper, Jan and Ben Evans, "Teeny" and Arnold Wilcox and Su an and Ken Luchs, accepting congratulations on his recent election as president of the Washington Real Estate Board.

Amba ador Timothee Ahoua and his beautiful wife Germaine honored Nan· cy Rawls, who is about to serve as our am bassador to the I vory Coast. This is her second post in Africa, continuing a long career as a professional diplomat. John Reinhart, director of I.C.A., recommends the Ivory Coast as a first stop for travelers who have not seen We tern Africa. It is very attuned to tourists, he says, with fine hotels, good food and a resort atmosphere. Mrs. Robin on Mcllvaine, wife of the recently retired ambassador to Kenya, said, "I liked the Ivory Coast for my vacations," but she strongly recornmends a trip down the Niger from Dakar to Timbuktu: "Just make sure you bring along good friends and plenty of martinis." Mrs. David Newson was there, but her husband was in West Germany debriefing the 13 hostages released from Iran. Ambassador Mcilvaine was very sympathetic to the situation: "I was America's first diplomatic hostage." He talked about his ex' perience in Guinea in 1966 when he and his family were held by a mob for eight days.

flair for the original; his dessert pastrie , from buche de Noel, to Pari brest, are renowned. The Broker, 713 8th St., SE, ha conducted a great deal of catering ever since the restaurant opened nearly two years ago. They have become known for their continental dishes with a Swiss accent. Executive chef Horst Klein, who \ a with the Hyatt Regency, has brought hi tremendous experience in party arranging and cooking for crowds home to roost in this modern burl wood spot where he contantly keeps an eye on quality. He can pro ide full service, liquor, servants, equipment, even floral decorations and he concentrate on providing a party right for the individual customer. He tailor the menu to the location-and will be adamant in not attempting a di h if the facilitie (your kitchen) are inadequate to do it ju {ice. Raclette, that sensual, gooey delight of melted Swiss cheese with potatoes, onions and gherkins that goes wonderfully well with firelight and football games, can be tran ported to your home with all the accoutrements. More sophisticated appetizers like snails wrapped with chicken breast strips or marinated shrimp are aJso specialties. The Broker is also known for veal entrees, and chicken Ginette, fresh. breaded chicken breast stuffed with crabmeat, spinach, walnuts and Swiss cheese, then swaddled in Beamaise sauce: pure elegance. Fruit fondue-fruits and cake bits to be dipped in warm milk chocolate-is also very festi e. The American Cafe, 227 Mass. Ave.,NE, and 1211 Wis. Ave., NW, ha upgraded its specialties to include catering. "Lawyers are our biggest customers - for business lunches" says Valerie Gift, catering manager. Besides the unique sandwich platters and breathtaking spreads of vegetable dips and hot soups, the restaurant shortly will expand its take-out menu to offer lamb stew and lip-smacking hot vegetable pie, hot vegetables encased in flaky puff pastry. Prices range from $1.75 to $7.75 for the Grand Buffet layout. The offerings of these restaurants are just a sampling of what can be accomplished when you want to couple the cuJinary excellence of a favorite chef with the comfortable ambience of borne entertaining. Even restaurants that don't ordinarily prepare "carryout' will do so for a good cu tomer. Give them a call or stop in and chat. 0

" Treece e plain that the problem with newer rug from the tandpoint of the inve tor i that "the lack ha already been taken up they're already very high-priced to compensate for hugely increased labor and shipping cost.

country. 1 think, though, that prices will not go up too much in the near future. ' It i only logical to uppose that the dearth of fine orientals will cause inve tor to turn their attention to hitherto ignored handmade rug and carpets. Richard Rush, for example, feel that there i already investment interest in French Aubussons, the tape try-woven carpets of the 18th and 19th centuries; he call them one of the be t bargains in tc.xtile today. But Louise Mackie of Washington's Te tile Museum hold that availability i only one factor in escalating values. "There are needs, tastes, design and decor trends .. so many things to con' sider! It's impossible to say what to buy today that will see a profit in the future." But whether you own a plendid Ladik prayer rug, a pair of Shiraz addie bag or a 9' x 12' Peking purchased in 1968 for $350, an inve trnent i only as good a it resale market. How do you best "turn over" your treasure when the time come? Fir t, get several expert opinions on the value of your rug from expert dealer, cholar or auction hou es. If you elect to sell at auction, choo e II reputable house, one with an international, nationwide or regional reputation, depending on the value of your rug. Expect to pay a commi sion of 10 to 20 percent of the ale price. Get a written contract, pecifying the commi ion, the date of the auction and the date payment will be due and identifying any additional charge for photography, insurance, moving and storage. But unle you are offering the rug through Christie s, Sotheby's or another major house, you will probably do better working with a dealer. If time i of the es ence, you can ell your rug to a dealer outright. but unle you are offering ornething trul)' unique. or a collection or an ite!11 which i particularly trendy. you will probably realize only 50 to 75 percent of the rug apprai ed value thi way· If you can be a bit more patient, consign your rug to a dealer, operating, of cour e, with a contract. With con ignrnent, you are expo ing your rug to an audience which i already old on the idea. Best of all, in selling your rug through a dealer, you begin to de eloP a personal relationship which \ ill land you in good lead v hen yotl begin the search for your nett in e tment. [J

Because generalizations about the appreciation of oriental floor coverings are almost impossible, Dossier asked local dealers to describe a favorite or interesting piece and its investment history. Mahmoud hokuhi, Versai Oriental Per ian Rug: New York-dealers, he says, recently offered Vcr ai 528,000 for a 40 to 45-year-old 8' X 5' 1 fahan signed by the artist, Sayrafian. With beige background, rust flower and a ent of dark and light blue, orange and green, the rug boasts a silk ba e (fringe) and is woven with 900 knots per sq. in. Shokuhi ays 25 year ago, the rug was bought for S150; it is e peered to continue it appreciation. "We're nOI selling." Ralph Roarty, Frank Roarty'" on, Inc.: There's a 25-year-old, 3' x 5' Tree of Life design rug, made in the town of Qum, which Ralph Roarty keeps in the back of the tore. It has a 100 percent silk foundation and pile. If you had purchased it when it was new, you would have paid about 5200. "Today' price tag i 56,000." Chuck Qure bl, Buyer for Oriental for Park Carpet: Qum's rug industry was de eloped not so very long ago, Qureshi explain. But When oil was discovered, the cost of labor there kyro kered, causing rug price to hoot up. A cherished 20-year-old 4 Y1 "x 7' Qum, with 100 percent silk foundation and pile, Went for 1,000 tops when new." In 1915, It wholesaled for 52,325. Recently, it COSt him $5,000.

Remember, your big plu II chariot is a ga guzzler only when yoLl drive it, and you can defuse rno t . argument again t your big car by the mere pre ence of a smaller car. If yOLl i are a political type, your statu can even be enhanced. You may also be amazed at the enjoyment of real, hone t-to-goodnes driving you get with many mall car , particularly the front-wheel-drive models that are erting the technological pace for the entire industry. To show the e tent [0 which ideas of ocial impre iveness have changed, today if you are the fir t on your block with a new Volk wagen Rabbit convertible, you are guaranteed lookS and attention. And if your Rabbit i diesel-powered, you can boa t of driving the fuel economy champ (an incredible 42 m.p.g. in town and we.1l over 50 m.p.g. on the highway). In thl car, or ina variety 0f ot her economizer, who can po ibly ay yoLl don't care about the nation' energY probl m ? But let' say you just can't abide the swing to a ubcompact, and you are not intere ted in the porty group. YOLl might e plore a variety of compact and mid-sized car that - while they maY not offer the ilken lu ury of a do offer above-average file economy. In fact, if you haven't been


in one of these smaller car in recent Years, you may be amazed at the way they have adapted many of the finer points of their more luxuriou big brothers. And all these cars offer a special kind of image that peaks directly to their owners. Drivers of a new GM "X-Body" Compact (Chevrolet Citation, Pontiac Phoenix, Old mobile Omega and BUick kylark) or a Plymouth Horizon/Dodge Omni, for example, are letting the world know that they are very much in step with the times, with the mo t up-to-date front-wheel-drive technology, e cellent fuel economy and urprisingly good comfort for four. nd by buying Ameri an, they have demonstrated their patriotism in What seem to be an increa ingly antiAmerican world. The Volvo 240 and more expensi e and luxuriou 260 are for the educated consumer who put a premium on Practicality, better drivability and quality over oozy comfort, while the Audi 5000 is for tho e who \ ant all of the above with more flair. The new Audi 4000 give you e erything the' 5000 does, just les of it. And in this same group, with a list of lu ury feature and options, are the Toyota Cres ida and the Dat un 810 sedan . . For the real driving enthusiast, there IS, of course, the BMW 320i, with its Unsurpassed quicknes and Illaneuverability, and the uniquely Styled, infinitely practical, yet joyously comfortable aab 900. The five-door ~one is the hatchback) aab 900 urbo In fact, may be the most perfect combination of performance, handling, Comfort and utility available at any Price. Also for the serious driver who demand uperior tyling and who is Willing to acrifice some practicality to get it: the Lancia Beta and the tunning new Rover 3500. As you can see, we have a great nUmber of transportation options available as we enter the age of energy Uncertainty. There i no need to despair that our elegant automobile ~re about to become hi tory, but there IS Strong reason to belie e that the ize, Status and use of fine cars will change. ~d that is the key word for car of the 80s: change. not sacrifice As Samuel Johnson wrote in The Idler. "The natural progress of men is from rudeness to convenience, from cOnvenience to elegance, and from elegance to nicety." Welcome to the age of automotive nicety. 0
