If there were a way to add up the time and talent that Harriet Luckman has contributed to good causes, the total would be staggering. She also manages to run various Luckman homes with skill and grace. And in between she turns out some of the most beautiful needlepoint we've ever seen.

Stars were on the ceilings. Gold stars were on the napkin rings. The rose topiary centerpieces were statuesque. Some ladies who had worn short dresses wished they had worn long. The party, bringing together descendants of two families prominent in the world of oil--the Kecks and Dohenys--may have been the most sparkling of the holiday season.
