Th<' strength and beauty of "The

makes us wonder what place this artist

this canvas might well be attributed to

by Francois Hubert Dronals, is espe
cially Interesting as belonging to a Ulf

canvases shown. The pain I s;iiu to be

familiar with the work of Rubens. Some
say the Cair hair of one figure could

of this master: and this it in that
marfes this exhibition of such Interest
to the student of art.
it is an exhibition that should not be
missed, for the Wymental collection,

of paintings not ofton to bo seen out

our city may nnmc day have, let us

The sudden death of Warren T.
Hedge's Monday came as a shock to his
many friends among the artists of
Los Angeled and the pupils of the Art
Students' league. For three years this
talented young artist lias been at the.
head of this school and has become
widely known as a teacher and Illus
trator The only son of. Dr. and Mrs.
Hedges of Pasadena, he took up his
work here after several years of study
in New York, at the Art Students'
league, and under Chase, Henri and
Dv Mond. Ho was able to bring to
the pupils under his direction both
technical ability and the qualities that
make a successful teacher.
In his death the Aft Students' league
has suffered a great loss. He whs not
only the instructor but the close per
sonal friend of all his students, and
through his sympathetic and lovable
qualities of. character was enabled to
set in close touch With his pupils anil
to better appreciate their needs and
ambitions. Always cheerful and opti
mistic, he had formed a largo ac
quaintance'in Los Angeles art circles
and will be deeply and sincerely
mourned. He inspired his students to
work with a will and with a definite
goal and his labors in Los Angeles
have made a distinct impression on art
education and on local art. Hi« influ
ence as ■well as his memory will bo
lasting. _^^_.

rill"'- common salutation this week lias been:
I Have you been to the Aviation, meet?
-L How would you enjoy a '.rip up in a balloon? \
Would you like't<> take a trip in a "get there quick" machine?
Do you" want to risk your life by flying through the air? \
Everybody is asking what is it like?
You fly! fly ! fly! That is about all they can tell you.
The question is, Are you willing to try?
Do you think you would like to ride in a biplane, sweeping
across the fields at the rate of a mile a minute?
T'li: eyes of the, whole world
are centered upon .L.os An
geles at this time. So arc
they upon Till': WHITI.KY JEW
ELRY COMPANY. Why. do you)
ask? Because they arc noted far
and near for their artistic work.
If there is any great event to take
place whereby trophies are to be
Riven, at once they say: "We will
go to WHITNEY'S, for they are
experts when it comes to designing
and building cup:-, etc." Twelve
hundred employes of the Loa An
geles Hallway company had the
■VVHTTLKY'S to design ami build a.
handsome silver cup to be present
ed to Henry X Huntington. This
cup is an exquisite plecß of work,
it is all hand engraved and bears
a facsimile of the new "pay as you
enter' car. which is soon to be in
augurated by Hi' 1 Hunttngton sys
tem. The top of the cup has the.
clover leaf and blossom design,
while the 'base is carried out with
autumn leaves. The Sun Diego
trophy, that ".is presented t.i RRUl
han for the greatest achiflvemrnl In
aerial navigation was also designed
„,,,1 ,„;,,!, by the \VHIT!.i;YS.
This firm had the honor conferred
upon it to be made official time
keeper fur Aviation meet. Many a.

The new play called "Chanti
cleer" has already produced a now
fashion In lints. It is called the
"bird's nest.' The crown of the hat
is ho fashioned that it looks like a
nest, and a bird is placed upon the
nest, which makes it very real.
There is a delightful fashion at
the present time for lons, oval and
round shaped bags hung on old
silver frames and suspended low
from the arm by heavy corded Bilk
handles, trimmed with tassels and
tied knots. They, of course, are
only carried in the afternoon and
evening.
The new yokes for waists this
season will bo mado of straight
hands of tulle, chiffon or embroid
ered net, and simply drawn on a
shirring thread around the neck
and again where they are attached
to the yoke of tho blouse. This is
an old-tlmo fashion revived.

The new sashes are so pretty and

Into fashion. This spring will bring
them forth in all their glory.
