WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ARTIST I am asked so often what i it like to be an artist. I think it means first of al that one must love beauty, Th beauty of nature. And one mus be able to see where true beauty lies, and this is not al ways easy. One must be able to se beauty in a muddy pond, piece of drift wood, a stone, a pile of sand, a colorless rock A storm torn tree, b r o k en jranches, a rainy day, a foggj morning. The beauty of spring. This teauly is so easy for any one LO see. The lovely flower spring up as Iho to show the delicate colors and fragile beau ty of creation. The rugged beauty of autumi (he glory of all the rustic col ors as tho an artist had gone from tree to tree from shrub to shrub the paint in all the beauty of-nature in one last display of glory. And the beauty of a glistening snowfall. One may watch the flakes as they drift downward trom the heavens to blanket (he earth with tiny sparkling diamonds. No arlist could capture this beauty on a canvas just as God lias given it to us. Yet we must create our own color from the By HAl, BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Vou can't hurry a wife or an army. It's foolish to try to. Any male veteran of either matrimony or the military service soon learns the unspoken philosophy of both institutions is the same: "Hurry up and wait." In the Army you receive rush orders to be prepared to move out al a moment's notice. You get ready as fast as you can. Then you just sit there and wait ... and wait... and wait. Marriage works the same way: "For Pete's sake, when are we going to get going?" demands the newlywed husband of his bride as she dawdles at her dressing table. 'I'll be ready when I'm ready," she answers serenely "If you try to hurry me, you'll only make me nervous." What the new husband doesn't realize is that playing the waiting game is one of the major in- dustrys of a woman's life, and that it is a game only a woman can play superbly well. It is her chief weapon against men, her means of keeping them off balance. If a man marries at 25 and expires at 7fl, he'll spend 45 years in marital harness. He can look forward, on the average, to spending at least 10 of those 45 years waiting for his wife to do something. He'll be standing on a street corner waiting for her to show up. He'll be sitting outside the powder room waiting for her to come out. He'll be drooping behind her at a restaurant waiting for her to pick out a seat. He'll be tying up a travel agent waiting for her to decide where they are going on a vacation. He'll be pacing a hospital corridor on Christmas Eve, waiting for her to give birth to the baby that the doctor confidently told them would arrive before Thanksgiving. There are many interesting and profitable ways a man can pass the time while wife-waiting. For example: 1. Catch up on his sleep. Ten more years of sleep is whal most men really need today to cope with the trials of civilized living. 2. Learn to wear a monocle. 3. Practice introspection ant become the first local guru in his neighborhood. 4. Grow a beard. 5. Take a correspondence school course in how to become a vcntriloquiest or private de tcctive. 6. Start a home mail ordei business in selling hand-dippec candles and art objects made o used chicken wishbones. 7. Dig a family bomb shelter in the backyard. 8. Memorize the commercials on television, and see if you can recite them backward. 9. Write helpful letters to the trouble congressman of his choice. 10. Secretly raise a herd o chinchillas in his basement anc surprise his wife on her anniver sary with a home-grown fur coat. Largesr Jade Carving BELIZE, British Honduras (AP) — A Royal Ontafio Museum expedition in British Honduras has discovered a tomb containing what was described as the largest carved jade object ever found in the Maya area of Central America.

The beauty in art is and has always been in the eyes of the beholder. An artist, first of all can not be a shallow person. He or she, must be capable of deep emotion, and must be able to place this emotion upon a canvas in such a manner that the viewer may share in this emotion.. ID my humble opinion unless this is done then the painting is a failure. And the artist is a failure. —(Name withheld by request) Remember Pay Your Paper Boy PLUCKY PELICAN inarches Into German hotel with great dignity.

South counted his tricks. He had four trump tricks in and could make his '—* trump and dummy's last trump separately for two more. The ace o! spades would be his seventh trick and five diamond tricks were needed to bring home the slam. If diamonds would break nicely he could just run '-e five tricks off but the bidding indicated that diamonds were not going to behave properly. There fore, South decided to play West for the jack of diamonds. He led his 10 spot and let it ride. Then he took dummy's king, picked up the suit and made his slam. Wrong Penny SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Ever put too much money in Expert bidding frequently resembles a nightmare with every player trying to guess what his opponents are up to. This hand went along tamely enough until East's jump to three spades. South had a sound opening heart bid, West had some sort of a takeout double and North had a book redouble. East's jump to three spades was based on a stout heart and the fact that his opponents were vulnerable and he wasn't. This crowded South into four diamonds. West entered into the spirit of the matter and went to four spades whereupon North jumped to six hearts. North had no idea whether the contract would be a cinch or impossible. He really sort of hoped that East or West would sacrifice at six spades but East had bid more than enough and West decided to hope for two club tricks. West did open with two round of clubs. South ruffed the second and proceeded to draw trumps just as anyone would. K • trumps had broken 2-2 _ parking meter or put in change and had nothing happen? Then you'll appreciate the plight of John Cayton, 13. John took a penny from his mother to put in the meter in front of a,coin shop where he was going to let an expert look at his prize 1879 Arrows-type dime. You guessed it. Subsequently, for the _ first time in memory of Santa Monica meter collectors, a patron actually demanded his money back. The request filtered up Wednesday to city Treasurer Kay Watanabe and was granted. The youth, elated at the recovery and also tardy for school, rushed off with the dime —which the coin expert said in quick glance could be worth J150 or more.
