THE SUNDAY STAR, Washington, D. C. smcpsT. jAm ait is. less Philatelic News New Art Academy Stamp Honors Cultural Leader By James Waldo Fawcett When the Government of the United States, acting through the Post Office De partment. honored the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, it also paid hom age to the founder of that earliest of American galleries —Charles Willson Peale. The stamp issued yesterday depicts him as he saw him self at 83. It reproduces his own self-portrait. But it is no ordinary head and-shoulders “close up.” In stead it shows Peale in full length stature, engaged in raising a curtain at the entrance of his museum of nat ural history in Philadelphia. Behind him are the curious animals and birds he collected. In the foreground are the fos silized bones of a mammoth which he had discovered. Here was a man to whom everything was Interesting. Born at Chesterton, Maryland, in 1741. “he displayed from his youth mechanical ability and remarkable versatility. In early life he proved himself a clever worker in leather, wood and metal. He could make a har ness, a clock or silver mould ing.” During the Revolutionary War he commanded troops with skill and outstanding courage at Trenton, German town, and Princeton. He was at Valley Forge in the terrible winter of 1777-1778. It was there, in fact, that Peale painted one of his best por traits of George Washington. His career as an artist had started at Annapolis, where he took lessons from the Swedish painter, John Hesselius. Sub sequently he studied under John Singleton Copley in Bos ton and under Benjamin West in London. With all his powers of imagination, he was a liter alist in his work on canvas. His many attempts to preserve the features of the Father of His Country for posterity were scrupulously faithful to Wash ington the man. It is for all these qualities and accomplishments that Peale merits national tribute. Perhaps second only to Benja min Franklin as a person of universal scope and span, he truly was one of the founders of American culture. Hamilton and Montgomery The names of Alexander Hamilton and Richard Mont gomery have been added to the list of American Revolu tionary heroes and heroines entitled to admission to the Nation’s philatelic gallery. Both were distinguished offi cers in the Continental armies. Hamilton (1757-18041 was on Washington's staff from 1777 to 1781 and was particu larly useful at the siege of Yorktown. Later, from 1798 to 1800, he was active head of the military forces of the United States. Meanwhile, he had been a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and Secretary of the Treasury from 1789 to 1795. Mortally wounded in a duel by Aaron Burr, he is buried in Trinity churchyard in downtown New York. A few blocks north on Broadway are the grave and monument of Montgomery (1736-1775) at Saint Paul’s Chapel. He was a native of Ireland who commanded the American expedition into Can ada at the start of the Revolu tion and was killed while lead ing an attack upon Quebec. Excellent portraits of both men are available for stamp reproduction. Smithsonian Accessions Dr. Leonard Carmichael, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, has announced that Malcolm MacGregor of Bronxville, N. Y., has provided funds for the enlargement of the National Postage Stamp Collection. Other recent de velopments at the Smithso nian include the receipt by transfer of 60,000 specimens of tax stamps from the Internal Revenue Service, a gift of valu able United States stamps from Philip H. Ward. jr.. of Philadelphia, and a gift of a fine collection of Transvaal stamps from B. H. Homan, jr., of New York.

TO KMOW? 1 j . —■ EASTER—A photographic study of th*rßermuda lily (Lilium longiflorum), displaying a solarized image, by Otto Maurer, former member of the National Photographic Society. Print Clinic With Analysis General: As a rule, a camera equipped with long bellows ex tension and a highly corrected lehs, such as an anastigmat, musi be used to photograph cut flowers. To sharply define contours, the lens must be closed to a small aperture, say F:l6 or F:32. Analysis (By Harry B. Shaw): Mr. Maurer used a plain white background not di rectly illuminated by the source of light. This resulted in a soft gray tone against which the outlines and con tours of the lilies are sharply defined. The tones displayed by the bell or funnel-shaped perianths range from precious whites to the velvety blacks of the solarized outlines and Camera Angles Enlarging Improves Good Pictures By Alexander J. Wedderburn Curator of Fhotography Th# Smithsonian Institution Enlarging is the third step toward proficiency in the darkroom. In previous articles we learned how to process neg atives and make contact prints from our negatives. But, from here on we are going after bigger and better pictures— and we do it with the photo enlarger. Camera fans are seldom content with a print only the size of the negative. Contact prints usually are too small to view readily except in al bums, so we have to look around for some way to get the pictures up to framing size or bigger. An Bxlo-lnch en largement is about average, but we may want to go up to 11x14 for exhibiting, or even larger for photo murals. The photo enlarger is a ma chine made for this purpose. With the exception of larger developer trays, it is all the additional equipment you will need if your darkroom has the usual supplies and gadgets used in making contact prints. Study for Merit, Flaws Before going into detail about making enlargements, let’s see what justifies making them in the first place. A good picture will almost al ways lend Itself to becoming a good big picture. But a bad little picture usually becomes an equally unpleasing big pic ture when enlarged. However, enlarging will quite often let you salvage a portion of a poor picture through the elim ination of the unwanted parts. On the other hand, some negatives will make a satis factory contact print, but be cause of some inherent defect will not lend themselves to en shaded portions of the peri anths. This is the finest ex ample of solarization that has come to my attention. Process: The subject, appro priately lighted and arranged, is sharply focussed on the groundglass screen of the cam era; a high contrast film is then correctly exposed. Tray development is started in the darkroom under a safe light and allowed to continue for about 30 seconds. The surface of the film, in the developer, is then flashed with white hght, as from a flash-lamp, and de velopment continued to com pletion ... The flashing causes a partial reversal of the image, producing the black outlines. largement. A slightly out-of focus negative is a case in point. Although a contact print will not disclose the fault to any great extent, the fuzzi ness will become increasingly apparent as the image is in creased in size. The same applies to scratches, fingermarks, pin holes. stains and other blem ishes on the negative. And, for the best enlarge ments, you should select a negative of good quality, with negative faults, you will find it so that the print can be made on grade 2 enlarging paper. While paper grades higher or lower in the contrast scale can be used to compensate for negative faults you will find it more practical to learn en larging with films that are easy to work with. Safelight Can Be Used As with film and contact print processing, begin by lay ing out your trays of chemicals in the proper order with the solutions at the recommended temperature. The safelight may be used throughout the processing without danger to the enlarging paper. It will be helpful to decide on the composition of the en largement before starting to work. This may be accom plished by studying a contact print from the negative and deciding which, if any, of the objects in the negative should be eliminated. A pair of card board Ls should be laid on the contact print and moved around until you find the best possible picture within the original scene. When this is determined take a grease pen cil and mark the composition you have selected for the en largement and use this as your guide when adjusting the image with the enlarger. Around the Bridge Table Close Contests Mark North Virginia Tournament The new Northern Virginia bridge champions came by their laurels the hard way. for there were no easy victories in the five major title bouts of the 18th annual series held last week end at the Willard Hotel, • Both the men's and women’s pair contests, which opened the tournament, were marked by photo finishes. Mrs. Mary lago and Mrs. Sarah Zeskind, both of Baltimore, led Wash ington runnersup Mrs. Roy Hackett and Miss Sue Gantt by one match point. In the concurrent men’s game. Douglas Groves and Charles C. Johnson won out over de fending champions Charles Geier-Lew Levenson by two match points. Mrs. Anna Kaplan-Mrs. Rose Robins finished third, Mrs. John G. Fletcher-Mrs. Lucy McConchie fourth in the 38-pair distaff field. Wallace Ashby-Davld Murray held third honors among 26 duos in the men’s contest. Mixed Pairs Results Hie race for the mixed title Friday night ended in a tie between Mrs. Margaret L. Fisher-Larry Reynolds and Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Lov enberg. Mrs. Dorcas Lawson- Robert Stucker, third in the 80-pair field, scored an even 200 match points, one and a half less than the victors. Others ending in the master point division in the mixed pair event were also area players: Mrs. Betty Cook-Col. Edward Clifford, fourth: Mrs. Freda Bentley-Lew Levenson, fifth; Mrs. Jean Ellis-J. B. Rintels, sixth, and the defend ing titlists, Mrs. Edna Evans- Lewis G. Tubbs, seventh. Mrs. Marianne B o s c h a n-Michael Michaels won a section top, Mrs. Florence Millspaugh-Mll ler Roberts, Mrs. Melora Christman-Ed Mecutchen, Mr. and Mrs. D. J. Harris. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph S. Turoff taking section seconds. On Saturday, members of the Washington Bridge Now for the enlarging opera tion. First remove any dust or fingermarks from the glass of the negative carrier. Also carefully dust both sides of the negative. Fingermarks or dust will be very noticeable on • a print made by enlargement. Next place the negative in the carrier with the shiny side up and the emulsion or dull side down or facing the lens. Otherwise the image will be reversed. But if you feel that by reversing the image the picture will be im proved don’t hesitate to do so, unless visible lettering on signs or reversal of clothing features would make such a procedure unwise. Place a sheet of white card in the easel of the enlarger and snap on the light. Then raise or lower the projector head until the image on the card matches the composition you have chosen. With an autofocus enlarger this is quickly done. With a manual focuj machine you' will have to adjust the image and focus until the right composition is achieved. If the latter type machine is used be sure the image is needle sharp. This can be done by focusing on some fine detail of the scene. Make Test Exposure When you have an image that is sharp and otherwise suitable, place a small test strip of the paper you plan to use for the enlargement across the easel and turn on the enlarger lamp. Give the paper what you judge to be the correct exposure. Then take it over and develop as you would a contact print. If the image is fully developed in a minute you can proceed to make a final print. If the image is weak more time will be needed. If the image ap pears too quickly and develops I fully before a minute you will need less exposure for the fin ished print. For a more exact method, cover about a fourth of the test strip with a card and ex pose for say about 16 seconds; then uncover another quarter of the paper and expose for 8 seconds. Repeat this twice again, each time cutting the exposure by half. The first quarter of the strip will re ceive 30 seconds’ exposure, the second 14 seconds, the third 6 seconds and the last 2 sec onds. When developed one of the sections will be just about right and will serve as a guide for an exposure for the final print. From here on out you can follow the routine used for processing contact prints. Sim ply run the prints through the three solutions developer, shortstop and fixing bath. Then wash, dry, and straighten and your pictures will then be ready for spotting and mount ing or flaming. We will go into details of these subsequent steps In sub sequent articles.
