Even if everyone didn't "dig" Brubeck's music at the Orchid Room they certainly had a whale of t atime. But the last word when to Susie Shelnutt, daughter of the US Embassy's Public Affairs Officer, Leen A. Shelnutt and Mrs. Shelnutt. Ambassador Gluck who received a garland handed it over to Susie. Susie, garland in hand, bided her time. When the echo of the last beat had died away, the hep cats had walked out with their feet still twitching and only the real enthusiasts were around. Little Susie, went up to Brubeck, motioned to him to bedn low, and taking the garland off herself, places it on the pianist. "Thank you, kid," said Dave and there was certainly one very, very happy little girl in town.
