. For Community Chest Emblem Contest Prizes of $100, $50 And $25 Will Go To Winners The Community Chest today opened a $175 prize competition for design of an official Chest emblem by suggesting to the public certain American qualities which might be aymbolized in designs submitted. The Washingtonian who submits the winning insignia will receve $100. Second place carries an award of $50 and third $25. The competi tion—open to all would-be artists of high school age and above—will Close April 30. Coleman Jennings, president of the Chest, said his organization's new insignia might well emphasize the American way of meeting prob lems of the less fortunate, through . voluntary support of agencies which take voluntary responsibility for community welfare. Symbols Suggested. H. L. Rust, jr„ chairman of the Judging Committee, suggested more specifically that designs could in clude symbols for the following: Democracy—Since the Chest is governed by a board upon which member agencies and the public's contributors are equally represented Tolerance—Since all races, creeds and economic groups are united under the Chest. Generosity—The Chest enables the strong to help the weak. Neighborliness—The old-fashioned sentiment in the form of a modern Institution. Justice—Through careful investi gation of agency aid to the needy and by distributing the burden of giving over a greater number of contributors. Co-operation—Of the 67 member agencies and the thousands of citi pens who work with the Chest, Inspiration for Designs. Mr. Jennings pointed out that less abstract inspiration for emblem designs may be found in the Chest's round of daily work, which stretches from the realm of infancy to old age. “Helpless babies are protected to Insure their health and future hap piness." he said. “Young children are given recreation and training to counteract pressure of modern city living, young people find outlet for their energies, men and women are helped to preserve or rebuild secure homes, old people find peace and comfort.” Contestants may get more de tailed information of activities con ducted by Chest agencies from the organization's public information headquarters, 1212 Eleventh street N.W. The winning emblem will be used on Community Chest stationery and probably on the buttons of volun teers and for poster display. Among the judges are the following: C. Powell Minnigerode, director of the Corcoran Art Gallery: David Finley, director of the National Art Gallery: C. K. Berryman, staff car toonist of The Star; George Lohr commercial artist: Mr. Jennings and Herbert L. Willett, jr.. director of the Chest. Their decision will be final. The prize money has been donated by a private individual. Instructions for Contestants. Here are instructions for com petitors: All entries must be brought or mailed to The Evening Star.
