The glittering crowd in the Enclosure during Royal Ascot Week, which begins today, will include tastefully turned out aristocrats, millionaires, American tycoons and a charlatan or two. But there's one thing many of the gentry will have in common: They'll have rented their fancy cutaways and top hats from a London firm known to everyone as Moss Bros--where the abbreviation for brothers rhymes with Moss.

"And how did you find us?" asked the Cornish innkeeper as I was signing the bill. "Through a friend in London," I replied. "He stayed with you last summer." "No, no," persisted the innkeeper. "How did you find us?" "With a Michelin map?" I ventured, seeking to answer a query I did not grasp. He shook his head in confusion. A passing American bailed me out on that spring morning by explaining that "How did you find . . .?" translates, more or less, as "How did you like . . .?"

Fueled by falling gasoline prices and hefty incentives on full-size pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, U.S. auto sales in October rose 6% from a year earlier. The increase was led, for a change, by improved performance at General Motors Corp., up 16.8%. Rival Ford Motor Co. recorded an 8.8% gain. Among the Asian-based manufacturers, perennial sales gain leader Toyota Motor Corp. posted a 9.2% increase and Nissan Motor Co., which has had a string of sales declines this year, reported a 3.

The Man Booker is the mother of all literary prizes. But it isn't for the $91,800 cash award that grown men threaten to shoot themselves. It isn't for the unquestionable increase in profits from sales, likely film and foreign rights. It isn't even for the glamour, though tonight's announcement, televised throughout the United Kingdom, is more like our Oscars than any bookish ceremony. It is for the sheer, indelible prestige of the thing.

Covent Garden is one of London's most colorful shopping sections, rich not only in appealing and varied merchandise but also in legend and lore. Covent Garden attracted tourists long before Eliza Doolittle, the Covent Garden flower girl, captured the heart of Henry Higgins and won millions of American fans. Its history predates "Pygmalion" and "My Fair Lady" by centuries. As long ago as 1200 this was Westminster Abbey's kitchen garden.

Glenn L. Moss calls personal computers "too complex." But the San Bernardino car dealer is spending about $25,000 to give his 11,000-square-foot home enough smarts to rival a PC. Soon, Moss will be able to call home from any phone to signal a control system to turn on the lights or heat up the Jacuzzi.

Upon arrival at Heathrow Airport outside London, we ran into Arthur Hancock and his wife, Staci. Hancock was one of the owners of Gato Del Sol, the Kentucky Derby winner in 1982, and a partner in Sunday Silence, the Derby winner in 1989. We all had much too much luggage--Pat and I had been on the road for four weeks--and Staci was especially burdened with several large hat boxes. "As you can see," she said, "we'll be at Royal Ascot for all four days."
