BOOKS and MISCELLANY by mary dyer lemon IN THE WORLD OF ART byline morose CO.WARNOCK'S MOVIES OF MEXICO AT HERRON ART Lecture Will Be Given With Film Today Including Painting, Drawings and Crafts exhibit Dale Bes-lire'i Show at Ueberi Other Listed. M OVING pictures taken in Mexico by C. 0. Warnock, Indianap olis collector of archeological craft work in stone, will be shown at the Herron art museum and a talk will be given by Mr. Warnock at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon in connection ,with the exhibits of Mexican paintings, drawings and crafts on view in Herron galleries. The public is invited. No charge. Dale Besslre of Nashville, one of Indiana's most sincere painters of landscape, is represented in the front gallery of the H. Lieber Company with recent canvases, all painted in Brown county. Shadow masses and lights in the hill country appealed to the artist as design motifs and he put upon canvas some very beautiful arrange ments of color in which light and dark values play an important part. The display continues through the week. Dorothy Dix's Letter Box. Should Child Suffer for Parent's Blunder? Should Wife Stick to Husband Who Left Her Flat During Prosperity? Advice to Wife of Man Who Rarely Laughs. Many brlght-hued flower paintings are among the canvases especially assembled for the eye of Santa at "The 25," residence gallery of Ruth Healing, 2242 North Delaware street Artists represented are: Simon P. Baus, Francis Clark Brown, Ruth-ven H. Byrum, Helen Goodwin, Flora Lauter, Hallie Prow, Clara Newman, Elba Riffle, Sister Ruflnia, Emma Sangernebo, Ella Shumate, Marie C. Todd and Jane K. Yung. With a peak attendance of 7,864 as one day's registration of visitors at the Art Institute of Chicago during the forty-sixth annual exhibition of American paintings and sculpture, it is readily seen that the art of today in our own country is proving almost as good a drawing card as did the exhibition of old masters at the Century of Progress exposition. "Thanksgiving" Draws Interest. It might also be remarked that nearly as many people gather about Doris Lee's "Thanksgiving" as they did when Whistler's "Mother" was the chief attraction for art crowds at A Century of Progress. There is this difference, however, in the attitude of viewers: While they stood in silence almost in awe before the Whistler masterpiece, they now are the landscape. Norman ManLelsh has painted fast and furiously in his large Negro composition, "Juba," in which a group of excited black men seem to be under the spell of a house cat that spits and raises its fur. t'nfamlllar Type of Work. I was interested in finding unfamiliar types of work by four or five American artists who long have been eminent as leaders in one way and another in the conservative school, but who, evidently, did not turn their backs on the radicals, getting what they wanted from modernism to make their pictures as lively as any others in the procession. Daniel Gar-ber, who used to display poetic landscapes with vine-draped trees as characteristic work In the Herron's American annuals, a number of years ago, is represented in the Chicago institute's show with a vigorously painted portrait, a gray-beard in standing pose, entitled "Lathrop." Haley Lever, whose Cornish boat scenes are always brought to mind at mention of his name, displays "New Jersey Landscape," whose crooked-limbed dead tree in the foreground has a weirdness that would (Associates Press Photo.) TAKAB MISS DIX I have a daughter It years old who is a cripple and U whom I am very anxious to help to a start in life. I am a poor man, but I am willing to go In debt to give her a business course and provide her with the proper clothes, and when she has finished the course I could get her a good position with friends of mine so that she would be self-supporting. But the trouble is that her mother and I have been separated for ten years and the mother will not permit the girl to come and stay with me or with her older sister, who is married, until she can finish the business course, or to go to any place where I could afford to send her. The mother has no way in the world of providing for the girl. But here we are deadlocked I wanting to provide for the girl In the only way I can and the mother refusing to let me, and the girl so completely under her mother's Influence that she won't do what she wants to do. Can you tell me what to doT J. H. Answer The mother evidently thinks she is revenging herself on you by keeping you from carrying out your plan about the girl, and she is so blinded by her own fury that she does not see that she is wrecking her daughter's life. It is as terrible an example of stupidity as I have ever known. "Victoria," by Malvin Marr Albright of Naperville, 111., won the Wm. M. R. French memorial gold medal In the American exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. In a beautiful color setting wallpaper sprigged with roses, blue door and violet panes, table cover with orange blocks and green and lavender bars, velvet wall drape and velvet wrap on table in rich dark , green tones, fruits in natural color Victoria wears a black hat and dull red dress, such as It is. It Is pitiful to think that this girl, who has already been dealt one cruel blow by fate, should be given an even heavier one by her own mother. For the only thing that could take the curse off of her affliction Is for her to be given some Interesting occupation with which to till her life, some ehance to do something worth while in the world and the ability to make herself financially Independent. Her mother must know that a girl who is crippled is cut off from many of the pleasures of youth and that she has a far less chance to marry than one who is not so handicapped. But her affliction will be minimized if she can have the compensation of a good job, of doing good work, of getting good pay and doing all the pleasant things and naving all the nice things that money would enable her to do and have. ft. . . . .- , v ; ,. The poor crippled girl without any business training must take any kind of hard menial labor that offers. ' The crippled girl with a good business training can aspire to any sort of executive position and a big pay envelope to which her mental abilities entitle her. To a crippled girl a business training la a pair of crutches on which she can go anywhere, and it is inconceivable that a mother would be willing to deprive her of such an aid. The only practical advice that I can give you, poor, perturbed father, trying your best to do your duty under hard circumstances, is to get your married daughter to go and talk to her sister. Perhaps she can brace her up enough to defy her mother and take the course that will mean her salvation. DOROTHY DIX. DEAR DOROTHY DIX I have been married nine years and have two children, the youngest- an infant. My husband fell in love with a girl whom he wanted to marry, but, as he was sorry for me, he waited until this last child was born before asking for a divorce. At the time he had a good job and a beautiful car and made a good salary, but the Lord doesn't always forget, as I thought He had forgotten me. My husband lost his fine position and his lovely companion fled. Now he is repentant and says he loves only me, and one couldn't ask for a better man. But why should I forgive him and be contented to live with him when he is making a small salary and have to work for him? I can't love him as I did and in my heart is a yearning for revenge, and if I can get work of some kind I am going to leave him and never, never return. DETERMINED. Answer There Is no ethical reason why you should stick to the husband In bis adversity who was so faithless to you In his prosperity. He was going to throw you out to shift for yourself and, In strict justice, you have a right to accord him the same treatment. The question for you to decido is one of self-interest. Will you be happier divorced from the man you have loved and who is the father of your children than you are with him? Will it bring you peace and comfort to think of him homeless, wandering around from cheap boarding house to cheap boarding house, eating poor food, sleeping in a shabby room, lacking all the little comforts and attentions with which you have surrounded him for so many years? Will It give you a thrill to think of his being lonely, missing you and the children, perhaps gettting drunk to drown out thememory of his folly! Will you find it a pleasant experience to explain to the children why they have no father? Perhaps the children won't think, after they are big enough to understand and Judge, that their father's having a silly affair with, a girl was enough reason for you to break up their home and deprive them of a father's love and care. You have to think of all of those things, you know, In deciding what is best to do. Then, do you think you will be better off trying to support yourself and the children than you are with a husband, even if he doesn't earn a big salary? Whatever he makes Is probably much more than you could make and it leaves you free to stay at home with the baby instead of putting it in a creche all day, and to look after the other child instead of letting him run wild on the streets. The poor woman mighty seldom improves her condition by divorce. And that is something to consider, too. Your husband did you a great wrong. I'm not condoning that. But he has repented and he is a good, kind man, and you could bind him forever to you If you would be big and generous and forgive and forget his sin against you. Don't you think you would be a lot happier and the children would be better off If you would Just kiss and make up and wipe the slate clean and start all over again? DOROTHY DIX. DEAR MISS DIX What would you do if you were married to a man who rarely laughs? A. L. B. iniuvr-I should res-ret his lurk of sense nf humor, because life Is bo much easier to bear if-you get a slant on the funny side of things. I heart stroll under amused and mirthful as they discuss Miss Lee's figure composition in -an old-fashioned country kitchen, when the turkey and flxln's are being looked after by mom and Aunt Sue and sis and cousin Jennie, not to mention various others who look on waiting for the white meat to be tender and the pumpkin pie to be a golden brown. The Sunday Star of Nov. 10 had a three-column reproduction of the, Doris Lee oil painting which won the Mr. and Mrs. Frank G. Logan Art Institute medal and $500, a canvas which, it is said by institute officials, has been the most widely publicized of atiy picture in recent years. Newspapers all over the United States have reproduced "Thanksgiving." Color Scheme Unobtrusive. In the black and white reproduction of "Thanksgiving," as it was published in The Star, one can get a good idea of the clever way in which all the figures women, children, babies, cat and dog and the varied assortment of kitchen objects and dinner goodies have been assembled by the artist into a unified design so that one's eye Is led from one object to another all through the composition. I was disappointed to find the painting with no more color than a faded print. On second thought, however, it seemed better to keep the color scheme pale and unobtrusive in order to center attention on the excellently drawn groups of figures and various objects that have t,heir place in a design which is so well thought out that one would never criticize it as being cluttered. A week-end trip to Chicago meant a few hours' study of the 235 paintings and forty-nine works of sculpture in the American exhibit and also of the 326 prints in the fifth international exhibit of 'lithography and wood engraving. I was told at the art Institute that the exhibition is making history in the American art world. It was easy to agree witn this statement, for there was evidence of a nearer approach to a national art than ever before. Independence of Thought-Evident. The American independence of thought and actidn has been set forth unmistakably In nearly every figure composition. And figure compositions are abundant. Life-size, full- leneth portraits, in which social leaders wear their party frocks and sit in pretty poses, were not entered to any great extent by the artists or were turned down by the Jury, for they sre not numerous. Instead of the single portrait there are groups of people crowds of people dressed in any old clothes that the subject demands, and always doing things. There isn't a lazy bone in their bodies, those American youths snd maidens and grown-ups and oldsters that bring action and movement Into colorful Interiors, lively atreet scenes and patterned landscapes. There la hardly a solitary scene In the exhibition. "Morning Tide," by America's noted marine painter, Waugh, a medium-sized canvas, is one of the few pictures entirely without the human element. Negro Interesting Subject. The American Negro Is appealing more and more to our artists as an interesting subject. Thomas Benton, who painted the Indiana murals for A Century of Progress, is represented with a striking Negro composition, "Romance," in which a dark-skinned swain ana nis sweei- full moon. Dis- DEPRESSION ROMANTICIZED IN NOVEL "VEIN OF IRON" Ellen Glassgow Ventures Forth With Realistic, Haunting Story on Lean Years Since 1929 Picturing Mankind's Bravery During Distress. T LAST the depression has been romanticlxed in a haunting, gripping novel, "Vein of Iron" (Harcourt, Brace) by Ellen Glasgow. Here we all are in print, fearful, stripped of much ma teriality, wondering what it is all about, and whistling through the graveyards of our apprehensions. Having so recently passed through the lean years from 1929 to 1935, we have been too close to events to catch the romance, the overtones, the clear meaning. It remafned for Ellen Glasgow to see that gaunt period In its proper perspective, to hold the mirror and give back its reflection to us. It is a story to wring the heart, but it is not the heavy losses suffered, the pride humbled and the hardships endured that put a catch in the throat. It is the bravery of mankind (particularly of womankind) under stress! NEW BOOKS RECEIVED. Fortunately the vein of iron that ran through Miss Glasgow's family, the Fincastles, that made them welcome each rebuff and turn obstacles Into opportunities, was not confined, geographically speaking, to Virginia soil. It has been proved that there was plenty of iron in Hoosier blood as well, which makes the story our story. , The novel takes up tne fortunes (or misfortunes) of the Fincastle family as far back as 1900, and well might they have sung that nobody knew the trouble they saw. But the pioneer and Presbyterian spirit was strong in them, which persuaded them to glory in tribulation. The older Fincastles found comfort In the belief that whatever happened was tha Lord's will, while the reactionary younger generations were inclined to STAMPS turn any modern brush green with envy. Walter Ufer of the Taos group of artists does not show the usual blanketed Indian subject, but pic tures an automobile breakdown, "Bob Abbott and His Assistant." And then there's a fourth famous American. N. C. Wyeth, who has won many prizes with big, conserva tive canvases. Still big, his "Dying Winter," with its three black crows on a fence, is sufficiently up to date that it will doubtless expire in the lap of a modernist spring. Always interested to know what recent creation is coming from the brush of William S. Schwarts (in my opinion one of the most gifted of the Chicago artists), I was not long in finding his street scene, "The Near North Side, Chicago," one of the richest in color, as well as the most satisfactory in handling of contrasting reds and greens of any canvas in the whole exhibition. It was generally noted that American artists are getting more richness and depth of tone in their color work. There is more graying and toning down of bright masses, thus giving more harmonious effects. Humor In Lead. Humor seems to be the keynote of a great part of today's American art, not only in paintings but also in sculpture. One of the funniest things in sculpture is "Sleeping Lion" by Carl Walters, whose supercilious grin is rib-tickling. Many gallery visitors are finding in it the likeness of the late Huey Long. "Naiad," by Oskar J. W. Hansen is a new version of the mythical maid. Gleeful, she rides a bucking tish and points out her hands like a movie actress. The sculpture is in silvery metal and is small enough for a mantel decoration, as are many of the figure designs in the round. Peter Paul Ott's "Tension," a nude athlete in light rosy-red copper is one of the fine small sculptures. "Form Composition" by Emil Zettler, two egg-shaped heads, placed one above the other so that the top of the lower head forms a shoulder for the upper head, has much Interest. Other Pictures of Merit. Hunt Diederich's "Goats," leaping lustily, is action personified. "Direct Carving of Monkey," In atone, by Esther Jamieson, has delightful humor as well as skill of workmanship. "Captive Cub" is a delightful bit of wood sculpture by Elisabeth Hasel-tine, who has been appointed to serve on the Jury for the coming Hoosier Salon. One of the finest works of sculpture is the head of a Negress, carved in heroic from black marble It haa unusual beauty of rhythm, symmetry and harmony in the planes of head and face. Two Indiana sculptors are represented. Seth Velsey displays the architectural head, "Elinor," that had recognition at tha state fair. C. Womer Williams shows a head from his studies of racial types, entitled, "Japanese Girl." A favorite subject with artists who put action into their work is the circus, with its trapeze performers and animal parades. The zebra seems a favorite among the wild animals, probably because of its rhythmical stripes as well as Its cavorting habits thst enliven tha scene. The exhibition closes today. orrinn CP Sol J5 In THgNgws FIVE stamps, bearing three different portraits of King Carol, are the latest adhesives in the growing list of Roumanla. The King In full profile Is the motif on the 25-banl brownish black and the 3-lei carmine, although part of the shoulders have been eliminated on the latter stamp. The 1-leu and the 7.50-lel blue also bear the picture of the King in profile, but with the face turned slightly to the front. In the remaining value, 6-lei reddish brown, Carol is in the military regalia of his office, with a full view of the face. The five apparently mark the completion of changes recently being made in Roumanian postal designs. Two additional commemorative from Germany, paying tribute to the National Socialist party, are a 6-pfennlg green and 12-pfennlg red. Drawn by Karl Diebitsch, who also designed the recent railroad commemorative issue of four items, the stamps picture the city of Numburg, surmounted by a castle and with an eagle holding the insignia of the party the swastika, now the national emblem in the foreground. In response to pleas of the Costa Rica Philatelic Society, the life of the three-day special issue marking the third centenary of the Virgin of the Angels, patron saint of Costa Rica, has been extended Indefinitely. Salvador's recent issue of stamps bearing the flag of the country total four values, 2-centavo dark brown, 5-centavo carmine, 8-centavo light blue and 15-centavo brown. Different national costumes of Ger many have been proposed for the de signs to be used in a set of ten denominations scheduled to appear within a month or so. But if all that was the matter with him was that he didn't guffaw over everything, I shouldn't let that worry me. 1 I( he was a Gloomy Gus who always looked on the dark side of things and was m perpetual crape hanger well, that would be something else yet again, and I shouldn't blame you for wishing that you had a companion who at some time let out whoops of Joy, But laughter Isn't always a sign of a gay heart, nor Is It an Indication of good nature as Is generally supposed. "A man may smile and smile and be a villain still," you know. Or he may laugh and laugh with the laughter that Is like the crackling of thorns under a pot. Or he may make loud laughter the camouflage for his cruelty. Haven't you heard men roar with laughter over practical jokes that were as cruel as any torture of tha Inquisition? Haven't you seen a man set a dinner table in a roar by holding up his poor timid little wife for his ridicule? And didn't you remember then, with shame, that man is the only animal that laughs? I Believe me, my dear, there are worse things than being married to a man who doesn't laugh. You might be married to one who laughs too much r laughs at the wrong things. Or you might be married to a village cut-op, and then you would have something really to cry about DOROTHY DIX. Tomorrow Inferiority Complex In Girl. (Copyright, 1038. ) played to good advantage in fine lighting on the south wall of Gallery 57. "Negro Baptism," by the director of the Herron Art School, Donald M.

Lawrence McConaha's "Red Barn," shown in the Herron's Indiana annual, last spring, hangs In Gallery 66 another example of Hoosier art that measures up well.

Between these two diametrically opposite systems of thinking, they muddled through their sorrows and became grim with fortitude, and at last almost nonchalant. The story centers around Ada Fincastle from little girlhood to middle age, whose life was strangely conditioned by the austere religion of her Grandmother Fincastle and the easier, kinder philosophy of her father, John Fincastle, who had dared to break with the faith of his fathers, and so became the misunderstood disbeliever (of creeds) all his days, the admirable failure whose inward success, that of the spirit, the world could not appreciate. Between these two exteremes, Ada must steer her lire course. Miss Glasgow's characters are pas sionate lovers. The devotion of John and Ada's mother, Mary Evelyn, is a brave, hardy love, but not more fervent and deep than Is Ada's for her life-long lover, Ralph. Even when he was snatched away from her by the blond vampire of the village, who, pretending that he had seduced her, declared it so vehemently (though falsely) that he was required to marry her, we find ourselves so indignant over the injustice that ruins both his and Ada's lives, that we are actually half willing to condone and forgive the two days Ada spends with him in, the mountain cabins when he comes home for a furlough during the war; a snatched happiness for which she was willing to pay the penalty all the days of her life. As always, the payment was dear, but the vein of Iron within carried her through. Though the finger of scorn was pointed at her when her child was born, out of wedlock, she would not repent of her brief stolen day with her lover, and because she could not acknowledge her sin, she felt she killed her grandmother with the shame of it. But such enduring love could not be forever kept apart. How their wedded life weathered the tempestuous years Is left for the book to tell. The patience, forgiveness and understanding that mellowed and matured their love Into something far more wonderful than their early impulsive a (Tec t Ion, Is one of the triumphs of Miss Glasgow's pen. Tho depression grew stout hearts, and here la the tale of such a devotion. Perhaps the quoted couplet on the title page hints the theme of the story: j "Effort, and expectations, andj desire, . And something evermore about to be." Easy to Read. The book Is extremely easy to read, flowing on as it does In effortless rhythm. The reader hurries through it from chapter to chapter, eagerly hoping (as do the characters themselves!) for better times and a turn in fortune. If It were not for the courage that permeates the story, the unselfish love that lightens their burdens, we hardly know how the pathos of It could be endured. And yet it 1 precisely what many of us have passed through, recorded with painful precision and set forth without exaggeration. Though writ ten in minor key, we take a curious delight in looking back now at most trying period which we like to ' FICTION. "THE ROAD TO GLORY" By F. Britten Austin; Frederick A.
