He tried to halt the flood of unworthy commemoratives at its start, but his vetoes were overridden. Bill after bill, "au thorizing and directing” the Post master General to bring out adhe sives desired by pressure groups and lobbies, were passed despite his dis approval. However, when the new national Legislature meets in Jan uary, a different atmosphere may prevail. The President’s ideas may be taken more seriously next year than they were this—up to now. In any event, representatives of the philatelic public are preparing to protest against commemorative stamps commemorating secondary occasions. The Postmaster Gen eral probably will submit his own program of new stamps of obvious national importance. A new 4-cent postcard and a new 6-cent airmail must be issued. Real commemora tives for Gen. Pershing > and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes also may be scheduled.

A stamp to help the campaign against cancer has been requested of President Tru man by Eric Johnston. Three stamps for the sesqulcentennial of the Dis trict of Columbia as the seat of the Federal Government are in process of development. A stamp to drama tize the drive to halt forest fires which annually devastate thousands of acres of timber likewise has been suggested and may be granted. None of the new adhesives men tioned would be unpopular; all of them would be well received by collectors. As forecast by The Star several times, the S-cent New York Bor oughs air-mail stamp had a short life in the Philatelic Agency. It was removed from sale in less than three months after issue. Specu lators already are “running up” its price on the market. Meanwhile, practically all of the other labels de manded by the Eightieth Congress are in short supply. The number of them manufactured was compara tively small. Many—the Gold Star Mothers stamp, the Palomar Moun tain Observatory stamp and the Rough Riders stamp especially—are' being used in quantities on ordinary maih This indicates that they soon will cease to be available at post offices. Collectors who have not obtained supplies should act with out further delay. G. E. Marcil, Cooke Sanatorium, Trois - Rivieres, Quebec, Canada, would appreciate any duplicates that Washington stamp collectors would care to send him. He is a tubercu losis patient who says he studies stamps “to keep (his; spirits high.” The American Philatelic Congress will be in session at the Abraham Lincoln Hotel, Reading, Pa., Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Program arrangements include the reading of technical papers, a dinner and a philatelic writers’ breakfast. Gerard Ten Eyck Beeckman ob jects to the word "accumulation” as applied to the collection of former Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes. He says there are “only” 4,432 different lots and that Mr. Ickes was not an accumulator but truly a philatelic scholar who worked over his stamps with care and. skill. The autograph collection of the late B. W. Kumler will be sold at auction at Weeks Stamp Shop, 1229 New York avenue N.W., Friday eve ning, November 19. Among the ma terial to be dispersed are letters and manuscripts by Presidents John Quincy Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Fillmore, Lincoln, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison, McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt. Taft, Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Truman: also by Charles Darwin.

Australia will bring out on No ember 15 a very attractive 2t»d carmine brown stamp for the Pan Paciflc Scout Jamboree to be held at Yarra Brae Wonga Park, Vic toria, December 29 to January 9. The design shows a waist-length portrait, of a typical Scout with a group of eucalyptus trees in the background. It is understood that the stamp will be available only two months.

States in which this collection will be shown. The Brooklyn Museum’s annual quickly established itself as one of the major print exhibitions of the year, reflecting widely diverse achievements and experiments in various print media. Seventeen purchase awards were made in the original show, 14 of which are included in the federa tion’s representative selection. These have « wide range of medium, idiom and technique. They include such comparatively traditional work as Adolf Dehn’s “Jungle at Night (re produced in these columns August 221 and George Biddle's swampy landscape, “Along the Banks of the Kalamazoo,” both lithographs, as is also Martin Jackson's “Reflected Yesterday,” a vignette of ruin. Daring Media Combinations. The majority of purchase award winners are abstractions in some degree. Dorr Bothwell’s “Memory Machine,” a serigraph, also won a prize in an exhibition of surrealism. (It will inevitably remind some ob servers of Rube Goldberg’s inven tions.) Antonio Frasconi's "Girl With a Bird Cage” is a typical ex ample of this young Uruguayan artist’s large woodcuts in deep-toned colors, spirited semiabstractions, that demonstrate his command of the medium, w. Roloff Beny’s ab stract “Time of War and Time of Peace” combines engraving, aqua tint and lithography. (Incidentally, not the least interesting feature of this show is the prevalence of daring combinations of media, which com bined and pure, reach a total of 14.) Visitors to contemporary exhibi tions are inured, by now, to incom prehensible works, not to mention titles, what people sometimes for get is that many poets, long-estab lished and included in every an thology, have written lines that sound beautiful, but, when analyzed, mean little. One is reminded of this by some of the prints in the current show, Friedel’s “Hazardous Virgin,” for instance, a combination of aquatint and engraving, with a composition of looping lines. Hung at the Corcqran beside Alice Trum bull Mason's award-winning "Indic ative Displacement” (another baf fling title) it emphasizes the latter’s static appearance. Non-Winners Are Favored. The jury which made the pur chase awards was composed of out standing authorities. Nevertheless, some of their choices seem decidedly inferior to other prints in the travel ing exhibition. I liked Leslie Cope s drypoint, “Whittling”; Lewis Daniel’s mezzotint, “Mayan Youth"; Christine Engler’s engraving, “Gigantic Shell”; Victoria H. Huntley’s “Florida Swamp,” Misch Kohn’s medieval looking wood engraving, “Old King of Thule"; Martin Lewis’ excellent drypoint. “Yorkville Night”; Rus sell Limbach’s “Still Life and Land scape,” Pasquale Masiello's etching, “Waterfront, Provincetown,” and Margaret Elder Philbrick’s "Out door Bouquet.” None of the semi and pure ab stractions are more baffling than D. R. Stuart’s naturalisticallv handled lithograph entitled "Image,” which depicts a woman tangled up in yards of cloth, with a large block of granite. * * * * Religious Sculpture Just opened at Salve Regina Build ing, Catholic University, is an ex hibition of contemporary religious scultpure (to be reviewed later), a companion show to that of con temporary religious painting at Bamett-Aden Gallery, reviewed last Sunday. Both exhibitions are spon sored by the Catholic Interracial Council of Washington. Among the exhibits at Catholic University is a little half-length figure in terra cotta of St. Francis, by a young Chicago sculptor, Joseph Kersey, who gave this work to Bar nett-Aden Gallery a few weeks ago. Noticing a subtle suggestion of Negro bone construction in the head, I asked Mr. Kersey about his interpretation. * He said, “After becoming ac quainted with St. Francis’ teachings and kindness to animals, I was in spired to create this figure. In my research, I learned that the man himself had been of Southern France origin, which would make his features coarse, yet fine, remind ing me of some of the Moors of Northern Africa.” Further impetus to do "St. Francis” was given the sculptor by his visit to the Francis can Monastery here in Washington. During the war, while in the Army, he was sent to the Pacific area. His study of the early religious pieces in the beautiful churches of the Philippines, crowned his desire to create a figure that would depict St. Francis in the light of his own mental concept. * w w * Veterans’ Annual The Greater Washington Area Council of the American Veterans' Committee has opened its second annual art exhibition to remain through November. Thirty-six art ists of the Washington area are rep resented in this show, which is hung in the committee’s spacious club ?

A veteran, the artist studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and elsewhere under Government patronage, and during WPA developed his own method of making carborundum mezzotint prints which have rich tonal values. Aspects of Negro life, portraits, figures, urban and industrial scenes constitute his subject matter. Examples of his work are in many collections. house, first floor, 1751 New Hamp shire avenue N.W. The exhibition varies considerably, having some excellent, some mid dling and some poor works. About a quarter of the show has been seen before in various groups. It is pre dominantly progressive. "Among the outstanding paintings, in my opinion, are Omar Carring tons moody “Sea Fantasy,” with a new moon; John Gerpand's inviting “Beach”; Andrea Zerega’s cheerful snow scene, which manages to look warm despite the subject; two ex cellent portraits, one of Robert Na than, the novelist, by Lloyd Em brey, the other of Charles Stotler by Kenneth Stubbs. Lois Jones has a spirited capture of an old “Banjo; Player,” and Lila Oliver Asher shows a sad-faced “Clown,” one of: the most traditional paintings on view. Celine Tabary’s panoramic ”Le Bourg d’Houdain” is colorful! and picturesque. Evelyn Somers’ i still life “Study in White” is pleas-1 ing. Prentiss Taylor shows on# of! his soundly painted portrait# of Mexican architecture. John Robinson’s large painting of the outdoor art fair in Lafayette Park reveals his phenomenal indus try, patience and sharp-focus vision. But he needs to learn to eliminate. Jack Perlmutter's cubistic “El Scene” is one of his most successful works. Jacob Kainen's landscape is surprisingly near to traditionalism for him. Joseph Cowell’s “Unknown Potential” shows imagination, needs a little hardening. Among the few pieces of sculpture, Leo Steppat’s “Figure,” simplified naturalism, is a refreshing return to the sort of work he did when he came to Washington in the early 1940s. Russell Houston's “Suspicion” is a clever utilization of a twisted piece of wool in a golden color: * * * * Haitian Popular Art Another exhibition of the popular art of Haiti has opened at the Wat kins Gallery, American University, sponsored by the Ambassador of Haiti, who inaugurated the show, and the Pan American Union. It will remain through November. The opening was also attended by Sel den Rodman, author of "Renais sance in Haiti,” just published, and a director of the Haitian Art Center of New York, whence the show came to Washington. * * dr * English Portraitist Brian Stonehouse’s eventful life (he is now only 31), Including his childhood spent in France, his re turn to England during his ’teens for his higher education, and his war service, beginning when he was 31, has made him a “natural’’ for personality stories. An account of his adventures was published In The Star October 20, after the opening of his one-man show at the Playhouse Theater Art Gallery. It will remain through this month. In addition to the four-minute charcoal sketches he made while a prisoner in Dachau, he is showing 10 or 12 portraits, mostly in pastels. Emphatically the best of his por traits is that of Maj. William H. Haller, which has individuality and character. There is a noticeable lack of these qualities in some of the other portraits of people in Washington society. But apparently, when uninhibited by his sitters, Mr. Stonehouse catches the special flavor of a personality, to'judge from his head of Uta Hagen (now playing the lead in the Chicago production of “A Street Car Named Desire”); another of an elderly English woman and a third called "The Blue Hat.” The public* can obtain at the ticket office free admission to the Playhouse art gallery. w T Kensington Lecture Dr. Dudley Crafts Watson, official lecturer for the Art Institute of Chicago, will give a lecture Thurs day at 8 pm. at the Kensington (Md.) Elementary School, sponsored by the Kensington Sketch Class for Amateurs and others. His subject is “Modern Art and the Old Masters,” and deals with the latest achieve ments in music and painting com pared with the classics and the master paintings of the past. It is accompanied by three dimensional “St. Francis,“ by Joseph Kersey, a gift of the sculptor to Barnett-Aden Qqllery and lent to an exhibition of con temporary religious sculpture at Catholic University.
