a statue book end are also the work
of this gifted girL as are two water
coior pictures, one nnisneu last win
ter (an Italian sketch, unframed),
and aonther done when she was 13.
Her modeling shows particular dex
terity, and she is sure to be recog
nized in the world of art. The sense
of proportion stands out marked in
all her works.
Another extraordinary collection Is
that possessed by Mies Frances Fos
ter, toe interior decorator, who has
an entire section ot her work on view,
including; conventional book covers
that display an astonishing amount
of talent: textiles. wood blocks,
posters, designs for mosaic panels
(both of the Italian renaissance and
Egyptian) and other things that are
attracting special attention. But for

she could enter with many well known
competitors, in eastern exhibits, and
carry off the honors.
Miss Ruth Munro Augur's water
colors of Mexican life reflect much of
the plcturesqueness and character of
these people, with their love of color.
Several are on display, among them
a swimming scene that found its mo
tif in the Santa Fe international
bridge on the border. She also is
showing several portraits, among
them, two of Miss Virginia Bean, as
the master violinist; some woodland
sketches In exquisite colorings and

And yet. she has had absolutely no
training accredited with her success
just a natural outlet for an artistic
nature. A splendid sense of propor
tion marks her faces and her color
ings in the oil portrait suggests toe
work of Chase.
Mrs. Charles I. Overstreet may
well be happy over the attention her
pictures attracted, especially that of

Miss Kate Kranse has a piece of
sculpure that was quite good, a figure
of a little girl seated beside a sort of
jar arrangement that holds fresh
flowers. She has some water colors,
also, including figure sketches, still
life studies and landscapes.
Miss Reba Moore had an interest

Miss Gearing stated that she has
seen more iced cakes in El Paso than
in all the other large cities of Texas,

a call to arms, for the women to
awaken to their responsibilities.
There would be no slackers in El
