WEDDERBURN Curator of Photography, Tho Smithsonian Institution Landscape scenery will be at its pictorial best the next few weeks and balmy weather will double the incentive to take our cameras along on trips through the parks or the nearby countryside. There is a big difference in the landscape “picture” trans mitted to the brain by the eye and the picture of the same scene recorded on film. We have binocular vision and view scenes in depth and perspec tive. The camera's single eye sees only in two dimensions. We are able to see color dif ferences that help separate the multitude of objects in a Scene and increase the sense of depth perception. The camera can only per form similarly when color film is used. The purpose of this discus sion is to show how it is pos sible to duplicate as closely as possible the wonders of nature on a two-dimensional sheet of black-and-white paper. That this can be done is attested by thousands of salon landscape pictures and by others being made daily by the more expe rienced. It is strictly up to the photographer to produce an allusion of reality. This can be done by following through on a few basic princi ples.

Miller Richard Miller has aptly titled his new manual, for, as every successful contract bridge player agrees, it is indeed a bidder’s game. Particularly in match point duplicate or tournament competition, arriving at the right contract is of paramount importance. For those who would become con sistent winners, this new ready reference provides a short cut in learning basic bidding logic that is easily adapted to varying systems and conventions. The author, a life master tournament player, begins with an Interpretation of his opening-bid formula, "High-card strength plus distribution plus available rebid equals opening bid.” He then covers all reprensentative bidding situations. A challenging departure from present-day standard bidding practice is the author's thesis for opening the bid ding with four-card major suits. His supporting arguments have much merit, especially when applied in the keen battle for part scores at duplicate. Added attractions include a list of 34 tips on the play of the hand, a table of conventional leads, and a concise glossary of terms.

And since the colors of nature will not be repro duced in the monochrome medium we must approximate color separation by properly evaluating color differences in terms of black and white. The illusion of depth can be created with the camera by stopping down the lens as far as practical considering the slowest shutter speed possible and by including nearby fore ground objects. Accuracy of exposure is of extreme im portance. Either over or un derexposure will tend to flat ten the picture. One might take several identical scenes at different exposures but the more practical and economical way Is to use an exposure meter. ROLE OF FILTERS Although the eye will readily see even the slightest cloud formation, only the most spec tacular will register on film unless a filter is used to pro vide the necessary sky-cloud contrast. And, though the eye will penetrate all but the heaviest haze, a filter is re quired to cut through it for the purpose of photography. An ordinary yellow or orange filter slipped over the lens will make a tremendous differ ence in your black and white snapshots. It will help the camera see and record the scene the way your eyes see it/ Vast panoramas are very deceiving.

Chess Club, Stassachusefta: p cover that all the flue details of the swne have been con denced on film to the point they blend and become lost. For example, a valley taken from a mountaintop seldom makes a good picture unless there is some large foreground object of primary interest. Before making an exposure take a good look in the finder. Ignore the colors of the scene and visualize it as it will ap pear in black and white. Then study the foreground. A huge expanse of unbroken lawn is just so much wasted space. A large area of blank sky should be avoided. Skies can be impressive only if huge cloud masses are present. INTEREST CENTER Always have some center of Interest in any landscape scene. A quaint old house or barn will do nicely. So will a group of majestic trees. Even one particularly attractive tree can dominate a picture. A herd of cattle, a waterfall, or a human subject will serve. A curving road that dwindles off in the distance not only will introduce a pictorial theme, but will help establish the feeling of depth and per spective to the picture. If you frequently crop land scape scenes lt should be ap parent that you haven’t given enough attention to composi tion before snaDPing a picture. Often a simple movement of the camera will imDrove a pic ture. If the area around the edges of the finder seems superfluous advance your cam era. You will get a greater image size for the objects you wish to include. Should the picture seem a bit cramped, step back a little. Instead of snapping the first view that appears in the finder move the camera backwards and forward, to the left and to the right, and tilt it up and down. You will be surprised at the infinite number of dif ferent pictures that can be taken in one location. But one of them will be just a bit better than all the rest. It's up to you to find it—and then make the exposure.

Norva Notes, official publi cation of the Northern Vir ginia Stamp Club, says: "On February 24 the long awaited replacement of the Marianne de Gandon design, used on (regular issue) French stamps since 1945, actually became a reality with the issue of a 15- franc value with a new design depicting a laurel wreathed head symbolic of the republic against the background of a rising sun. The head in this new design is in profile facing to the right.” Portugal on March 17 re leased six stamps bearing por traits of as many kings of the first dynasty of such national rulers. Australia will issue three stamps to advertise the Olym pic Games, to be held in Mel bourne, November 22 to De cember 8, 1956.

No announcement has been made by the Post Offlce De partment publicity bureau concerning the proposed “cer tified mail” scheme and 15- cent "smiling letter carrier” stamp, first offered for discus sion on February 15.

Bert A.
