MONDAY, JUNE 21, !%5. .7/J c 7V; n\ GM x i:1.1r: New Robert Fulton Stamp To Use Houdon's Portrait BOYCOTT OF MEDICARE OPPOSED BY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION HEAD NEW YORK (AP) - Dr. .James Z. Appel. newly-installed By JIM CHEMI Gazette Staff Writer Jean Antoine Houdon's bust portrait of Robert Fulton will be utilized as the design feature for the U.S. 5-cent stamp to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the inventor who became the operator of the first commercially successful steamboat. The stamp will be issued Aug. 19 at Clermont, N. Y.. site of the Hudson River estate of chancellor Rob- erf. R. Livingston, who sponsored the i n v e n t o r's steamboat trip up the Hudson from New York to Albany in CHEMI Contrary f. o some historic accounts, Fulton did not name his steamboat for the village of Clermont but actually for the name of his sponsor's estate house, which | was "Clermont." At the time of Fulton's sailing, Clermont was only a landing for river travelers stopping off at the chancellor's residence. PHILATELISTS will recall the current 5-cenl Washington stamp also was adapted from Houdon's bust portrait of our nation's first president. The bust by the noted French sculptor is now in the Detroit. Institute of Fine Arts. The Fulton commemorative design was created by John Maas, former artist member of the Postmaster General's Citi- 7,en's Stamp Advisory Committee. The Fulton bust, appearing nn the right side of the design will be printed in blue, with the background in black. The line drawing of the steamboat "Clermont" and the lettering "Robert Fulton 1765-1965," centered on three lines, will be in the white of the paper. First-day ceremonies are to be held at Clermont, but since the little village is without a regular post office collectors desiring cancellations on first- day covers must send their addressed envelopes to the Postmaster, Kingston, N. Y. 12401. Covers will be processed at Kingston but will be given a Clermont postmark for the first-day. THE LONG BATTLE between Henry E. Harris, Boston stamp dealer, and the U.S. government over the proposed reprint- 1 ing of intentional errors on a, Canal Zone postage stamp has| now moved to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of : Columbia. Harris discovered a pane of the Canal Zone's 1962 Thatcher Ferry Bridge commemorative issue with the bridge missing in the vignette on all 50 stamps. The bridge portion of the design was superimposed in silver on the nor-! mally printed stamps. The error sheet was among a shipment the Harris firm received from the Canal Zone's philatelic bureau shortly afterl the stamp's release. WHEN HARRIS reported his discovery to the press, Canal Zone officials quickly announced their intention to reprint 100,000 copies of the error, which would nullify the Harris find. Harris countered by filing suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, requesting that a permanent injunction be served against the Canal Zone to bar reprinting the intentional stamp errors. Following several year of legal manuevering by the government, Judge George L. Hart Jr. ruled in favor of Harris, stating in effect that the governor of the Canal Zone had no statutory authority to reprint the missing bridge error solely for a philatelic purpose. THE U.S. government has now filed papers with the appellate court for a review of Judge Hart's decision. It is expected the government's appeal will be based on the legal question of the right of a citizen to sue the United! States, rather than along phila- : telic lines. Most veteran philatelists believe the Canal Zone, because! of the time lapse, will not re-! print the errors even if the! government's appeal is allowed. ^ Take WAKEFJELD'S BLACKBERRY BALSAM Compound for fast relief from common diarrhea due to food reactions or sudden changes in drinking water or climate.
