Help to identify a novel...

I was wondering if you could help me identify a novel. All I know is that it was published between 1960 and 1985. It's a young adult novel, concerning a group of children with special powers or gifts. One of these children was called "The General" because he wasn't gifted exclusively in any one thing but seemed to have a knack for everything. The children's gifts may have been connected to beads which they collected and placed in  torcs or necklaces.

If anyone can answer this please email or post here and I'll pass the information on.

Maybe it was just a leaky synapse firing, but something in my head suggested THE CHRYSALIDS by John Wyndham.

Unfortunately I can't lay hands on my copy to check it out.
