THE HARTFFORD CHRONICLE
B1 ECAUS5 we are all saving food these days and because causa it is extravagant to follow tne annual custom of Easter Egg Hunts, which require large quantities of eggs with the usual wastage, wny not, oe more practical this year? Nancy Holmes of the Best Foods kitchens says you can have your eggs, but you must eat them too. For example, she suggests a color ful Easter salad, the backbone of which is that old favorite Potato salad decorated with a gay array of pastel tinted eggs fashioned like tulips. The 6maU fry can still have , their fun making the eggs, and you can all enjoy the eating.

This has led many to purchase expensive lenses or whole cameras in the be lief that an Fl.S was an open sesame to great photography.. High-speed lenses have an im portant place in certain specialized fields of picture-making. However, with the development of practical lighting - equipment and faster film emulsions, the necessity of. ultra speed lenses is not so important as -it once was. The F1.5 to F2.8 lenses were designed with just one purpose in mind: speed. This speed may have been attained at the ex pense Of over-all sharpness. Also, these lenses cannot be stopped down to the very small apertures so -often desired for great depth of field a handicap in much general pnotography. And for many photog raphers, the added cost of these ultra-fast lenses could be much bet- ter invested in other equipment; : Many people vv ho buy these speed 1 lenses need or use the full aperture so seldom that its liabilities far outweigh its value. You're fever Too Young For Searching the Future THEN: Earliest records indicate that the first man-made ca nals were tre ated for irriga tion purposes, though later, both Assyrians and Egyptians saw their value for navigation purposes. Charlemagne (8th and 9th Centur ies) encouraged a successful water communications system which con nected the Main. Rhine and Danube Rivers LATER: The Chinese, long depend ent on waterways for much of their commercial movement of gpods, in the 13th Century joined the Pei-ho and Yang-tse-Kiang rivers with te historic Grand Canal, recorded in the writings of Marco Polo, who in dicated that such waterways of the Orient lay pretty much on the same general level. SOON: Typical of plans for a still turbulent China seeking better eco nomic interchange, are those being made' for the famed Yangtze River Gorge which is to be dammed. If plans now being worked out by the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation and the Chinese mment are carried out. Fultoi s, Jr.. reports that sh'ps with tonnage as high as J1.-"1') u-Ui up by cranes and lwjuieu over a lock 530 feet in height GrsfifX Photo Dtrtttnr For all-round snapshooting and general photography .an F3.5 o--F4.5 lens is more than adequate, particularly when the camera Is equipped with synchronized flash or floodlights are used. This is the speed range used by most press and commercial photographers on their Speed Graphics and other general duty equipment. Ever then, a great part of their shots are made at apertures from F8 to F22. In this range, lenses generally offer greater sharpness and adequate depth of field, to handle most subject properly. , With .today's high-speed 'films, even an F6.3 lens will serve ad mirably for a broad variety of pho tographic work and will seldom cause you to wish you had spent twice as much for a much faster lens. In any event, talk your personal photographic . interests over. : with yow-deaier and let htm recommend the type of lens most useful to you. You'll save money and disappoint ment, and get much more satisfac tion from your photography han If you rush out with the false notion that the fast lenses are the best ones for any work. - - Grave of Crew V.
