Local/Kansas 2 The Salina Journal Sunday, February J5, 1986 Page 7 Judge impressed with annual art fair entries By JUDITH WEBER Staff Writer Jack Favre was impressed enough with the art entries in the annual Fine Arts Fair at Kansas Wesleyan Saturday that he wishes they could be packed up and displayed in other towns. Favre, assistant professor of art at Kansas Wesleyan, judged the 150 art ] entries at the fair, which was sponsored by the Sixth District of General | Federation of Women's Clubs. Favre "It would be great if we could pack it up, because it's worth seeing." Favre said the quality of the work was "excellent." "With a little more training, they certainly could become professional artists, "he said. The participants in the competition were high school students from Salina's three high schools and from 13 other high schools in north-central and northwest Kansas. Federated Club women also were eligible to enter the competition. The drawings, water colors, oil paintings and engravings depicted scenery, barns, animals, flowers, still lifes and abstracts in various styles developed over the centuries by master artists. "Just about anything from the past is here," Favre said in reference to styles such as realism, impressionism and pointillism. _ "I wasn't looking for any particular style. What I was looking for was craftsmanship, technical skill with the media and proper use of perspective." Favre said he was looking to see, "Is the person an artist or a dabbler?" The judge first examined the entries and eliminated the ones with visual problems, he said. Then he went through them again. The third time around he started placing ribbons on some of the entries, and upon re-examination, brought four of the eliminated pieces back into consideration. ' 'As you look at some of them again and again, it seems to work better." The Fine Arts Fair provides one of only a few chances that high school Brier Brier to watch elections in the Philippines TOPEKA (AP) - Secretary of State Jack Brier announced Friday he will fly to the Philippines this week to observe presidential elections there as part of a 20-member American delegation. Brier saidjf ^ he accepted J *'~ an invitation from Pres- i d e n t Reagan be part of I the obser-1 vation team only after being assured that "I can call it as I see it." The delegation, which includes 10 Congressmen, will be led by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Richard Lugar, R-Indiana. The observers plan to leave from Washington on Tuesday to oversee balloting scheduled for Feb. 7. The campaign between Philippines President Ferdinand E. Marcos and opposition leader Corazon Aquino began after Marcos called the mid-term to demonstrate his popularity. At least 31 people have been killed and 14 wounded in political violence since the campaign began and charges continue from both sides of attempts to rig the elections. "My role, and that of the other observers, is to see that this is a fair, free and open election," said Brier, who added that about 30 million people are expected to go to the polls. Following a briefing in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, the delegation will be split into teams and dispersed among the nation's provinces for three days, according to a statement from Brier.

The displays were open to the public, and quite a few onlookers passed through. A number of parents came in to check on the judging, he said. The students were not with their exhibits. Almost a third of the entries received blue, red or white ribbons, making them eligible to compete in the GFWC state fair. The Fine Arts Fair also included musical auditions from about 30 high school students in brass, woodwind, string, voice and piano. The music students competed for a scholarship and a chance to enter statewide competition in the GFWC Fine Arts Festival in March at Bethany College, Lindsborg.

Paul Hess remained in jail here Saturday, unable to post bond after making an initial court appearance on forgery and theft charges. When Hess went before Linn County District Judge Leighton Fossey on Friday, he asked to be freed on his own recognizance. The judge refused that request but did reduce bond from $15,000 to $10,000. However, the Linn County sheriff's office said Hess was still in custody Saturday. Hess, 37, served three terms in the Senate repesenting a Wichita district and rose to the chairmanship of the influential Ways and Means Committee. He was an unsuccessful candidate in another Senate district after moving to Overland Park in 1984.
