' JUMESGAINS
IN SAFETY WORK
Student Training One of
Chief Advances Noted
in 1937.
Hie year 1937 was featured by the
greatest advance of any single year In
preparing new driver* for their re
sponsibility at the wheel and in the
constructive education of both mo
torists and pedestrians in sound prac
tices for using the streets and high
ways.
This statement was made today by
the American Automobile Association,
which has co-operated throughout the
year with high schools and colleges In
launching driver education and in
structor training programs. The ac
tivity, started in 1936, augments the
A. A. A. grade school program of
posters, safety lessons and school
safety patrols in which some 250,000
boys and girls are enrolled.
Safety Education Gains.
The national motoring body cited
the highlights in the safety education
»nd driver training field during 1937
as follows:
Three States—Connecticut, New
Vnrk and Wisconsin—enacted legisla
tion requiring safety education in the
schools, making 20 States which now
require such education as a result of
board of education regulations or State
laws.
More than 5.000 high schools now
offer some form of driver education
ind approximately 270.000 Sportsman
like Driving text pamphlets developed
bv the A. A. A. in collaboration with
educators were placed in the hands of
Itudents.
Colleges Co-operate.
Twelve outstanding colleges and unl
fersities co-operated with the A. A. A.
In driver training work and offered
rummer courses for instructors, fitting
more than 600 teachers to help meet
the demand for competent instructor*
In high schools. In addition. 13 short j
courses for teachers desiring to be
come driving instructors were con
ducted in co-operation with State and
local educational authorities and col
leges at scattered points throughout
the country.
Manufacturers of automobiles evi
denced new interest in training drivers
and the Pontiac motor division of
General Motor* made available a fleet
of dual-control Pontiacs for use in
the A. A. A driver training program.

Rare Chromolithograph
In the Division of Graphic Arts at the Smithsonian Insti
tution you may see this rare chromolithographs copy of the
painting of "Christ Blessing Bread,” by the Italian artist, Dolci,
a copy identified by crime experts and their apparatus in the
technical laboratory of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

G-Men Uncover Rare Example
Of Chromolithographic Art
—— ■ A -_
Infra-Red Photography
Solves Mystery of
Picture.
Scientific methods of crime detec
tion, employed by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation in its war on crime,
were used recently to solve a mystery
of art.
The part played by the F. B. I.’s
infra-red photography in identifying
an old painting as a rare chromolitho
graph was announced today by Ruel
P. Tolman, acting director of the Na
tional Collection of Fine Arts, in the
Smithsonian Institution.
Mr. Tolman is an active supporter
of The Star's art appreciation cam
paign and recently was a guest speaker
on a radio broadcast in behalf of the
movement to popularize art in Wash
ington and nearby.
The mystery had its beginning in the
quiet atmosphere of the Tolman home,
at 3451 Mount Pleasant street N.W.
One of Mr. Tolman's neighbors and
friends is Roger Williams, contractor,
who lives at 3445 Mount Pleasant
street.
Acquires Painting.
Mr. Williams formerly had offices
and a plant in Southwest Washington.
From a garageman in the neighbor
hood he acquired for a nominal sum
a canvas painting showing Christ
blessing bread. The painting's previ
ous history, except as to its origin and
identity just disclosed, is somewhat
dim. It is believed to have started cir
I culation in Washington through the
: auction sale of an artist’s estate.
! Mr. Tolman became interested when
his neighbor showed him the canvas.
Traces of pencil writing were revealed
on the reverse side of the canvas after
it had been removed from the frame.
The writings could not be deciphered
with the unaided eye or with a hand
glass, it was explained in a bulletin
of the F. B. I.
Suspecting it might be valuable, Mr.
Tolman took the canvas to his own
office and then turned it over to the
Federal bureal, which co-operates with
other branches of the Federal Govern
ment in matters other than original.
Infra-Red Method Decided On.
“Comparing the problem presented
with somewhat similar problems in
obliterated and partly obliterated writ
ings which have come before the bu
reau’s technical laboratory in criminal
cases, it was decided to attempt to
emphasize the nearly indiscernible
writings by means of infra-red photog
raphy,” explained the F. B. I. bulletin.
"Utilizing infra-red filters and the
special plates sensitive to the infra
red of the spectrum, photographs were
prepared in which could be clearly
read the title of the picture and part
of tfte name of the artist.,
“This writing was in German script
and translated into 'Christ Blessing
Bread.’ ”
This enabled Mr. Tolman to identify
the canvas as a copy of the original
painting of Carlo Dolci, Italian artist.
The painting now hangs in the Dres
den, Germany, art galleries. Dolci
lived during the Italian Renaissance,
from 1616 to 1686. His home was in
Florence. „
The original engraving for the copy
undoubtedly was made in Dresden,
Mr. Tolman explained. The copy is
rare because it was printed directly
on canvas by a very difficult chromo
lithograph lc process.
Traced to Richmond.
This method was popular between
1870 and 1880 in Germany. How this
copy of Dolci’s work reached the
United States has not been determined.
The stretcher frame revealed, how
ever, the name of a Richmond, Va„
dealer, and from this, it was learned
the copy was sold in Richmond in
1874.
The rare chromolithograph now be
longs to the National Collection of
Fine Arts. Mr. Tolman arranged for
the Federad Government to buy it
from Mr. Williams for a nominal
sum. It is now on exhibition in the
Division of Graphic Arts at the
Smithsonian Institution.
After telling this story, Mr. Tolman
expressed gratification at the success
of The Star’s art appreciation pro
gram which is now closing its twelfth
and final week. "It has served an
excellent purpose.” he said, "and
Washington will continue to enjoy its
benefits for a long time to come. It
has helped to stimulate universal
interest in art in this section.”
All 12 sets of color reproductions
ofTered by The Star and the National
Committee fot Art Appreciation are
on sale at the special art booth in The
Star lobby. The last set. which went
on sale Monday, contains four prints
_RUEL P. TOLMAN.
from the works of contemporary Amer
ican artists—Rockwell Kent's "Win
ter,'* Jon Corbino's “Flood Scene,”
John 8teuart Curry's “Line Storm”
and Grant Wood's “Arbor Day.”
48 Reproductions.
The entire collection includes 48 re
productions of famous paintings by old
and modern masters, a dozen weekly
art appreciation lessons by Dr. Bernard
Myera of New York University and
the collector's portfolio in which to
keep them.
These prints were to be on exhibit
today from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Room
221 at the Young Men’s Christian
Association Building, 1738 G street
N.W., as a feature of annual New
Year's Day open house at the “Y".
Henry Wadsworth Moore, noted
artist and president of the Washington
Landscape Club, was scheduled to act
as host for the exhibit and to discuss
the works of art with visitors to the
room between 2:30 and 4 p.m.
Other exhibits of Star pictures may
be seen at the Mount Pleasant branch
of the District Public Library, Six
teenth and Lamont streets N.W.. and
at the Silver Spring, Md., public library
in Jesup-Blair Community Center at
Georgia avenue and the District line.

ANTI-CATHOLIC BIAS LAID I
TO TEXT BOOK WRITERS;
i By th* Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 1.—The Rev.!
Dr. Joseph B. Code of the Catholic
University of America said yesterday :
‘‘anti-Catholic prejudice is implanted
in young, uncritical minds by text
book writers who "accept with blind
faith what the so-called first-class
historians hand out."
Speaking before the American Cath
olic Historical Society at its meeting
in conjunction with the American
Historical Association, Dr. Code de
clared that the writing of English
history "virtually anti-Catholic is
greatly responsible for that deplorable
prejudice which has been written into
England's past.”
Asserting that "tne responsibility of
introducing truth into English his
tography seems to have been left to
the specialists in law, economics,
finance and agriculture," Dr. Code
called upon American scholars "to help
remove the stupidities which have been
written into English literature and
history.”
