The sharp climbers, used by the

have made deep snags in the trunks

NOT FOR FEW ALONE
Highest Form of Creative
Work Is for the Masses
Who Inspire It.
What art means to us in daily life
was the theme of the address by
George Julian Zolnay, the St. Louis
sculptor, at Assembly this morning.
.' "Art is the insnired nroduct of our
(creative faculties," said Mr. Zolnay,
"that work which mind produces on
its creative side. It is the power a
man has to take a piece of stone
f worth nothing, and transform it into
something which Is worth its weight
"This created product," he contin
ued, "varies with the ability of the
artist, but it also varies with the
state of culture in which he lives.
Art deserves its name only when its
creative power, produces something
which Is the expression of high ideals.
It depends to a considerable extent on
conditions, surroundings and people
among 'whom the artist lives. )

.Mr. Zolnav showed a number of
Pictures illustrating what he believes,
to be the power of the artist when he
lives up to the highest ideals. Such
pictures as "The Angelus" and "The

stimulate sympathy. Others are pure-1

again visualize for us things which
we have not seen bnt which are of
interest to us.
"The reason the artist means much j
to us." said 3Ir. Zolnay. "is because!
through him we get the quintessence
