That is what D. S. Dcfenbachcr, director of . the Fort Worth Art Center, told El Paso artists at a dinner. He said individuals who will not win prizes in the current project, must keep on trying and participate in exhibitions in the future. Mr, Defenbacher and Doel Reed, head ot the Oklahoma A. and M. College Art Department, will judge paintings in the Fifth annual annual Southwest Regional Exhibition Exhibition of Painting's. Prizes will be announced at a ton from 2 to 5 p. m. Sunday, inj the Cotton Memorial Gallery at Texas Western College. Mr. Reed emphasized Mr. Dcfcn- bacher's point by adding that judges, no matter .what their personal personal feelings may be toward the participants, must judge any art contest on the basis ot the highest Metropolitan standards.

Of the 100 paintings entered in the contest, only 20 were chosen for the exhibition on this basis of excellence of standards.
