The Associated Press A worker walks past the statue of President Franklin Roosevelt and his dog Fala In Washington, D.C. The memorial will be dedicated Friday. REMEMBERING Memorial might provide lasting image of U.S. president By MIKE FEINSILBER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — When Franklin Roosevelt was president, his portrait was everywhere: on kitchen walls, in school rooms, in barber shops. Today his likeness is on the dimes in everyone's pockets. Still, artists had — and have — difficulty capturing the vital Roosevelt. Every portrait seems to offer a different Roosevelt. His face — constantly in motion, constantly changing — is hard to pin down. "He had an all-purpose image that people could craft to their own liking," says FDR biographer Patrick Maney of Tulane University. "That's why he was so effective on radio. He became an Everyman, not in the sense that he was the equal to anybody but that you could make him what you wanted him to be." The national monument to the 32nd president opens Friday. Sculptor Robert Graham of Venice, Calif., whose work at the memorial depicts FDR seated in his inauguration motorcade, says the monument may give future generations their enduring impression of Roosevelt. In much the same way, Gra- ham says, Abraham Lincoln is envisioned as the solemn figure depicted in Daniel Chester French's Lincoln Memorial and George Washington is remembered like the Gilbert Stuart portrait hanging in so many classrooms. "It doesn't matter what they looked like," Graham said. "That's what we think they looked like." He said today's artists, making Roosevelt portraits from photographs, have to decide which pictures showed FDR as he really was. "What we have now is an abundance of photographs that give us the illusion that we know what the man looked like." The main sculpture at the memorial was done by Neil Estern, 71, New York, and he says he struggled to get Roosevelt right. "It's easy to understand why these others had difficulty capturing the essence of the man," Estern said. "The more I worked on it, the more elusive it became." Estern's bronze statue is twice lifesize. It shows Roosevelt seated, nearly covered by a triangular-shaped cape that leads the eye toward the massive head. FDR's Scottish terrier, Fala, sits beside him. An oversized, overly long pant leg suggests the immobil- ity of Roosevelt's crippled legs, and there are tiny wheels on the dining room chair on which he sits — modeled from one at Roosevelt's home in Hyde Park, N.Y. After completing each model, Estern said, he felt he had caught the spirit of Roosevelt's personality. But each time he made a new model, he changed the face — and again he'd feel he had gotten it exactly right. "There were so many twists and turns," he said, "so many subtleties." During Roosevelt's presidency, artist S.J. Woolf was commissioned to make a series of birthday portraits. He had his troubles. "He is rarely quiet and, to make matters harder, his expression constantly changes," Woolf said at the time. "I cannot remember any other sitter whose face seemed to vary so much as his, or so often or so quickly." Biographer John Gunther noticed the same quality. In the course of a 20-minute press conference, Gunther wrote, Roosevelt's face recorded "amazement, curiosity, mock alarm, genuine interest, worry, rhetorical playing for suspense, sympathy, decision, playfulness, dignity and surpassing charm." Walker / She's a top fund-raiser FROM PAGE A1 He was a longtime chairman of the March of Dimes campaign there and during her high school years she headed a teen chapter. But she has additional, more personal, incentives to participate. Her daughter Tammy was born with Down's Syndrome, as was a granddaughter. And a grandson was born prematurely. "I have a lot of reasons to walk," Davis said. The March of Dimes raises money for research into the pre- vention of a variety of birth defects. McDowell said the effort in Salina last year raised $48,000. This year's goal is $50,000. Within the hapter's 32-county area, $100,000 was turned in r, McDowell said. Nationally, the walk raised $67 million. "The biggest breakthrough has been the drug Surfactant," McDowell said. The drug is used to strengthen the lungs of premature babies too weak to breathe on their own. Also, the charity convinced the Food and Drug Administration to require the addition of folic acid in all grain products. The substance, taken by women in amounts of a little as 0.04 mg daily, has been shown to reduce by 80 percent the incidence of neuro- tube disorders, such as spina bifi- da and other spinal abnormalities, McDowell said. Anyone interested in walking or donating may do so up to the day of the event. Registration is at noon Sunday, with the walk starting at 2 p.m. Call the March of Dimes office at 825-7476 for details.
