In Georgetown, where the great success of the afternoon was the tiny new
Pekingese puppy Just born to the great pet of the Thomas household,
Helen Thomas adores Pekingese and has a wry fine collection of
them—so numerous that as we were coming up the steps from the play
room to the drawing room floor we were stopped by a seemingly endless
parade of Pekingese—and one gentleman who had had two Martinis re
