"Textural Contrasts" offers g REVIEW contemporary visions using time- honored crafts media. Fiber, handmade paper, and clay are the media of choice for the artists displayed: Joan Schulze, Lee Warner and Paula Jo Stude. All are staple materials of the crafts world. And, as with all media, sometimes they are used creatively; sometimes they are not. As a whole, in this exhibit, the artists' visions are of primary importance, and the materials are used creatively to support the ideas. Schulze works with fabric collages. Composition is everthing in her 17 works. The collages, mostly non- Today, Tuesday Observed As State Today and Tuesday are holidays for many Alabama workers. Today is Presidents' Day, the federal observance of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, which was Feb. 12, and George Washington's birthday on Feb. 22. Tuesday is Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, a state and city holiday in some areas. Below is a listing of which Montgomery-area city, state and federal offices will be closed or open on today and Tuesday. Bone Marrow Donor Meets Transplant Recipient TUSCALOOSA (AP) A Kentucky woman said she never had any doubts about donating precious bone marrow needed to save the life of an Alabama child she had never met be- fore this week. "For me there was no 'no side." I said I feel good about it and I want to do it. You really have to be positive about doing it. You Police Investigate Double TALLADEGA (AP) Polite investigating the fatal shootings of a Talladega woman and an Alpine man searched Sunday for a man described by a dispatcher as a "gun fanatic" whose wife was seriously wounded during the apparent domestic dispute. Police said Janice A. Morris. 29, of Talladega and Ralph Swann, 24, of Alpine died from wounds suffered in the Friday night shootings at an apartment at City Court No. 2. a Talladega housing project. Morris was shot in the chest and Swann was shot at least once in the head. Geraldine George, 27, was shot under her left arm and was in serious condition Sunday at Carraway Methodist Medical Center in Birmingham. All three were shot with a 9 mm pistol. "They (investigators) don't know Suspects Could Face Large Fines Continued From 1C "They may make less than what the face value says the stamps are worth, but it still can add up to a handsome profit without much effort expended," Rolison said. Some don't worry about exchanging cheese for stamps. They just try to get something for nothing by selling their five-pound gift from Uncle Sam. A few years ago, a man walked through the Dallas County Courthouse with a big cardboard box filled with surplus cheese he had "obtained." Courthouse employees, Lawyer Denies Recent Candy Mashing Continued From 1C tive foward looking image" by allowing the flag to keep flying. The Democrat mentioned Hunt's visit last year to the Far East on an industry-seeking mission as well as expensive ads in The Wall Street Journal and other major newspapers "to project a positive business-ready image for the state." "The governor's cowardly unwillingness to compromise on the flag issue has negated and set back his public relations efforts for the state," the newspaper said. A North Carolina minister who visited Selma as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. birthday celebration seemed surprised by one reception and has written about it. In a letter to Mayor Joe Smither-man, who was in office when King led marchers during voting rights demonstrations in 1964, the Rev. Grady Davis Sr. thanked the mayor for giving him a key to the city. "I shall always hold in eternal memory the key to Selma which you presented to me," Davis wrote Smi-therman. He then added: "I was shocked to learn that you were still alive and mayor of the city." n University of Monlevallo mathematics professor Gene Garza, who sued President James Vlckrey over a freedom of speech issue, found his lawyer recently got some first-hand objective, are rich with textural surfaces. A delicate fishnet mesh is often used, as are silkscreen fabrics, a cellophane-like material, swatches of the bright and bold, and everything in between. Her intriguing interplay of materials is most apparent in six small poetic works. In these, each fabric sample becomes a word, each fabric bend a syllable as the individual elements gain importance in the simplier compositions and more limited use of materials. One larger work, "Urban Fish," does use references to subject matter. We see two fish swimming toward a fisherman's net in this work. The thin mesh covers much of the collage and creates an illusion of water. As we peer through the mesh and see the fish and meandering jetsam, it is as if we are peering through a film of water, murky with plankton. The illusion of fabrics is created in the works of Lee Warner. In the Most Alabama state offices will be closed today and Tuesday.

Wooldridge donated her bone marrow last summer to Na-kole Brown, daughter of Wayne and Becky Brown of Tuscaloosa. Wooldridge and Nakole had never met until Friday. "I think it's easier, being a parent, to see why someone what the details are," police dispatcher Willis Whatley said of the 7:58 p.m. shootings. Whatley said investigators searching for Larry Donald George, 32, found George's car covered with brush Saturday afternoon in a wooded area of the Moxley's Crossroads community in Talladega County. "He had tried to camouflage it," Whatley said. Whatley, who described George as a "gun fanatic who likes all kinds of weapons," said investigators believe George is carrying several weapons and a bullet-proof vest. George was described by police as 6-foot-2, 174 pounds. Whatley said Sunday that no charges had been filed in the case. The dispatcher said George and his wife had been separated for several months, "but investigators were un whose tax dollars were used to provide the free cheese, quickly reported him to authorities. Rolison and Assistant U.S. Attorney Willie Huntley spent Friday in Selma conferring with U.S. Department of Agriculture agents who made the arrests and processing those picked up. Those convicted could face penalties much more severe than loss of food stamp privileges at their stores. Each could receive up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on individual counts. experience on that matter. Asked a few days ago for an update on his suit against Vickrey, Garza responded, "I don't know right now, but he'll let me know once he gets out of jail." It seems Garza's lawyer was held in contempt by a federal judge in Birmingham for uttering some things to a jury ruled off-limits prior to trial. After spending the night in jail, the lawyer emerged unshaken by the development and, apparently, ready to report to Garza on where he stands in his First Amendment case. Selma lawyer Blanchard McLeod has admitted he likes to punch holes in candy but denies he had anything to do with the latest unsolved incident at the Dallas County Circuit Clerk's office. Chief Clerk Harriet Piper put a gooey piece of candy in McLeod's mailbox and he gave it a thorough inspection before proclaiming his innocence. "It's my modus operandi, but I didn't have anything to do with it," McLeod said. The lawyer has been accused of mashing pieces of candy until he finds the one he wants while putting the damaged soft stuff back in the box. All About Alabama was compiled this week by Alvin Benn in Selma, Judy Fish at Fort Rucker and Penny L. Pool in Auburn. works on view, this California artist meticulously draws quilt patterns onto sections of handmade paper. In a playful trompe-l'oeil spirit, Warner actually sews stitches around some drawn fabric swatches and then draws the stitches in other areas, resulting in a lively interaction. In "Log Cabin in the Pines" we see an intricate quilting pattern described and detailed in an even more intricate drawing pattern. As with most of this artist's other works, this "quilt" is small, and bordered by the rough, deckled, uncolored edges of the paper. Complete with unraveling threads, these borders suggest decay and neglect. The unkept borders create a feeling that the pieces are small, surviving fragments from an earlier age. Warner and Schulze both explore their themes and materials relentlessly. No two works are alike; each has an individual idea. This cannot be said about the sculptures of Stude. The Federal Courthouse in Montgomery will be closed today and open on Tuesday. The Montgomery County Courthouse will be closed today and Tuesday.

Individually they are interesting, but with only slight variations differing one piece from the next piece. Once you have seen one, you have seen them all. The sculpture's air-brushed colors do not help. The pastel hues do little to support the nature-from-another-planet sensations that the forms evoke. "Contrasting Textures" is an interesting, worthwhile show. It is an encouraging comment on the state of crafts in contemporary art. The works on display don't use the traditional crafts media and images as a end unto themselves, but as a vehicle for original personal expressions. The exhibition will continue through March 4.

"Nobody has come to me and mentioned any anxiety or problem whatsoever," Headmaster Don Carden said. "From the kids' end of it, I can honestly say it's like nothing ever happened." Mental health experts expected that students, teachers and parents might develop problems, but they seem to have come through the ordeal with few or no scars, Carden said. Psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and a social worker arrived at the school Feb. 2, shortly after students and teachers in elementary school classes were taken hostage by a man seeking media attention. The man wanted to publicize his complaints about the government, and released students and teachers throughout the day. James L. Harvey, 42, who was charged with 84 counts of kidnapping after he surrendered, is being held on an $8.4 million bond. No one was injured in the 12-hour siege at the school. "The first three to five kids that came out were very tearful and very afraid, but after that they came out very calm," said Sheldon Roscnzweig, a counselor with Indian Rivers Community Desiree Misty . w So Yd M CARPETS (GET I Hurry' So! cnt Marcf" I si ,JJ.'.

Some third- and fourth-grade students were held almost 12 hours while other students and teachers were released shortly after being taken hostage. Rosenzweig said students that were held for 12 hours have adjusted well. Although Rosenzweig said no one has called him, he has run into a few parents whose children have had nightmares and one mother who fears dropping her son off at school. But he said with a lot of loving care at home, he thinks these problems will fade. Carden said the school has also received several thousand dollars in donations. "Some have said use it where you need it, some say use it for security and some just say we appreciate you and we want to help you," he said. Problems could crop up later, Rosenzweig said, although he doubts that will happen. Carden said the school has actually benefitted in some ways. He had been afraid parents might withdraw their children after the ordeal, but instead the school has picked up two new students and had several inquiries. "It really boggles my mind," Carden said. "I think the fact that the guy just picked this school at random and the way that parents stood together makes people say 'I want to be a part of that.'"
