J YOUTH LOOKS AT YOUTH A young couple absorbed with a Photokino exhibition and with each other studies one of the picture groups from the world-wide selection of photographs entitled "Woman." This Pool Table Is Designed For Use In Cramped Quarters BY IRVING DESFOR AP.Newsteatures Some 1,600 outstanding photographs of International interest were gathered for 15 documentary exhibitions at the recent Photokina in Cologne, Germany. The photos, plus five live demonstrations of photographers in action or photography being used, completed the two-part purpose of the world's biggest photo fair. The primary spotlight was on the industry's newest cameras, accessories, equipment and machines. Its second task was to show the scope of what can be accomplished with a camera. It was interesting to note the increasingly important role which young people are developing in photography. One of the major exhibitions. "World Show of Youth Photography," was distilled from 10,000 photographs submitted by youngsters up to 25 years of age from 50 nations. The pictures were unified by a theme, "Human Rights," from a United Nations' proclamation listing the freedoms which people cherish. Youth's Involvement with basic freedoms is evident In the 276 photos selected, the work of boys and girls from 37 countries. At a special ceremony honoring the young photographers, more than 50 awards were distributed. Another exhibition, "We Europeans: Through the Eyes of Youth," had selections made according to age groups. The youngest, from 13 to 16 years, were represented in the color, black and white and reportage categories which made up the final display of 127 prize winners. . .a laudable feat. Youngsters are also active In the movie field and the best efforts In 8mm and 16mm films were included in a "Youth Film Show" program. Of the 20 films selected and shown at hourly intervals, 11 were shot In 8mm size and only two were without sound. They tackled topics like "Our Sunday," "Labyrinth," "Ex- In another interesting double release, Folkways has out "Groovin' Time" by the Original Chambers Brothers and Columbia is releasing "A New Time a New Day" by the Chambers Brothers. These two albums don't show as much difference in style as the titles and artist billing would Indicate. The original Chambers Brothers was four Willie, George, Lester and Joe Chambers, born in Mississippi, singers of spirituals in a Baptist church. The group now has added a fifth, New York-born Brian Keenan. On "Groovin' Time," which we like slightly better of the two albums though we much enjoyed them both we hear a definite gospel sound, in fact a driving gospel in the fast numbers. "Down in the Alley," which is slow, is more a grooving song, as the album title advertises, with a motion as real as 1930s swing. On the newer album, the Chambers Brothers' second for Columbia, the eflect is reversed the slow songs sound more like gospel than the fast ones. "Guess Who," a slow love song," is delivered with a gospel flavor. But the fast songs have the currently commerlcal "soul" sound, one step farther removed from the rural Negro South than rhythm 'n' blues. Their most recent single, on Columbia, "Time Has Come Today," went to No. 11 on the best-selling charts Oct. 26. various stages of construction.

Its exhibition showed examples of photography by Its 10-man faculty along with results by Its students. European interest was evident by the crowds which sought out the American school's booth on the floor below where they studied the textbooks and teaching methods. All In all, Photokina verified some observations by Its director, L. Fritz Gruber. "Our age would be aimost blind without photography," he said. "Photography transforms fleeting Impressions Into lasting documents. It excells the capabilities of the human eye and renders visible that which Is hlduen from It. It provides a profes-, slon for many experts, a medium for individual expression for creative people and a sensible and fruitful form of recreation for amateurs with pleasing and lasting periment In Color" and one was a fanciful pursuit of a mischievous lost wallet entitled "Catch Me." Photokina's major exhibition was assembled after a global search to reveal the nature of "Woman" In every facet of her existence. Final selections consisted of 525 pictures taken in 85 countries by 236 photographers. These were arranged in groups, each an aspect of a woman's life as seen In different countries or by different photographers. Typical situations: Love, marriage, childbirth, motherhood, joy and grief. Such a huge display, though expertly arranged for spectator viewing and conveniently grouped, was far too big to digest In any one visit. It suffered also from poor display print quality In many instances, due, no douN, to lack of time to search out original negatives. In contrast, the Impeccable quality of prints displayed by our By MARY CAMPBELL AP Newsfeatures Writer If it isn't a Pete Seeger week and no record company has proclaimed it so in order to sell more records then it should be, because three new, good records by Seeger are out. "American Favorite Bal-' lads" Is reissued by Folkways. There are 17 songs on here and they are, Indeed, favorites of old-time American folk. Old-time American folk isn't recorded much any more; presumably everybody Interested in singing it has already recorded it. This has the very well-known things, "Down in the Valley," "Buffalo Gal," "The Wreck of the Old '97," "Old Dan Tucker" 17 in all. It was out In 1959 and 1962, but If you don't have it and you like these songs, It's a good one to get. One word of caution if you sang these songs as a child, you probably sang them at a faster tempo. Also on Folkways, Seeger has out "Wlmoweh and Other Songs of Freedom and Protest." These songs are taken from live performances and most of them Include audience sing-along. You can sing along with the record just as easily; Seeger Is a person the listener trusts and responds to. Some of these songs are from Ireland, from the Spanish civil war, Negro gospel songs like "Down by the Riverside" and "I'm on My Way to Canaan Land." The title song Is from South Africa and lyrics mean "The Hon Is sleeping." The last song is "The Hymn of the United Nations," with melody by Beethoven and words by Tom Glazer. These are sturdy, in some cases, almost classic, songs making statements for freedom. Columbia also has issued a Pete Seeger album, titled "Now" which presents his beliefs the most clearly of the three recordings. Seeger's main dlsire obviously is for understanding between people, and as a singer, he's trying to promote that through singing. "Letter to Eve" Includes Seeger's line, "We got to build a new garden, for all of God's children." The talking blues, "Talking Ben Trl," (which Seeger didn't write) includes his point of view, too, pointing out the irony of killing villagers to get the Viet Cong. Contemporary verses are added to "Michael Row the Boat Ashore." "The Cities Are Burning," by the Rev. Fred Klrkpatrlck, Is sung by the composer. And In case anyone is thinking that Seeger is anti-American on the basis of some of the satire on this album, listen carefully to "The Torn Flag." It's obviously written by an idealist, who sees things going wrong with his country but wants to change them back, in fact improve them, and it's sung with quiet fervor.

Aittt BySYD KRONISH The 1968 edition of Netherlands' popular Child Welfare semlpostals consists of five multicolored adheslves depicting familiar fairy tale characters. The set, which will help raise funds for the benefit of poor children In Holland, shows a goblin, a giant, a witch, a dragon and a sorcerer.

After all, a home is still the basic unit of all society, and the best place of all for any ambitious young American to keep out of trouble.

The first police ! department In the New World was organized in 1650 by Peter Stuyvesant in what is now New York City. The police had rattles which were used to frighten thieves and, if needed, to hit them on the head. Policemen were required to call the hour at each street corner. The policemen who worked after the Civil War were given billy clubs and rattles as part of their uniform. The club is now considered standard equipment for riot control. ; The rattle looked like a small baseball bat with a nun-' die on the side. A center section of the "bat" revolved.

Bennington type brown mottled glaze pottery knobs were made about the same time. By the last half of the 19th century, ornate metal knobs were being made by many firms. They were made of bronze, brass, cast Iron, steel, or gold or silver plate on other metals. Study Victorian hardware In old catalogues and advertisements. Your library can help you locate some of the old sources. Q. My uncle has about 50 negatives on glass. We know how old they are because they were taken In 1904. Do the;, have any value? A. Yes.
