Stuart Perry at the Monday evening meeting of Round Table Study Club at Mrs. John Gnam's home. The book is an account of how to stop the corporation from stifling people and strangling profits. Prior to the program, Mrs. Richard Watson, president, conducted the club's business meeting. In March, Mrs. Perry told the club, Townsend became known as the author of a breezy A to Z business manual which purports to be a stimulating, entertaining and controversial book. Before joining Avis, Townsend headed the investment and international banking operations of American Express. In the early 1960's when Townsend assumed control, Avis was a floundering company that had lost money for 13 years trying to rent cars. During his tenure it became nationally known as a profitable and spirited enterprise whose workers became familiar with the phrase "We're only No. 2 — we try harder". He tendered his resignation on the day the International Telephone and Telegraph assumed control. Townsend reserves some of his heaviest fire for mergers and nepotistic managements. But his basic message is an idealistic insistence that companies and their bosses should simplify operations, pay attention to their real jobs and cut out the corporate nonsense of executive privilege, unnecessary meetings, proliferating memorandums and organization charts. He urges the abolition of reserved parking places in the company lot with the caustic remark, "If you're so bloody important, you better be first in the office." No one should be chief executive officer of anything for more than five or six years. Mrs. Perry poured when the hostess served refreshments from a table centered with a silver bowl of yellow and bronze mums. Round Table's next meeting will be at 2 p.m. Nov. 9, at the home of Mrs. Howard B. Wilson.

Newman CIuB States Views On Abortion Newman Study Club, meeting Monday night at the home of Mrs. Edward Wieland, voted to adopt a resolution stating the club's views concerning the abortion proposal. The following was composed: "We members of Newman Study Club do hereby resolve to oppose the legalization of abortion. We, women, whose very nature is to guard and preserve in security, the developing child, seek to ensure the continuing legal protection of human life in the unborn fetal stage of growth as well as the protection of human life after birth." Mrs. Blanche Leahy conducted the business meeting. The evening then was turned over to the program speaker, Mrs. Orville Murphy, whose topic was "Three Hundred Years of American Painting" Mrs. Murphy began by pointing out that with all the visual aids it seems strange that the average person knows less about American painting than American literature. Many museums are increasing their American collection; painters, out of fashion for a time in the past, like Remington and the Hudson River School, are now widely acclaimed. Mrs. Murphy stated that the documentary value of America's earliest paintings outweighs their aesthetic merit. Painting in the early American time was of great impor tance as the camera had yet to be invented. Most of the earliest artists were portrait painters; among them were John Copley, Benjamin West and Gilbert Stuart. At this time the west, was being won, no small wonder that the subject matter of the paintings turned to the Indian and the settler. Western artists mentioned were George Catlin, Frederic Remington and Charles Russell-, John James Audubon was the foremost artist of wildlife. While these artists were making news in the west, Whistler, Sargent and Mary Cassatt were creating on the eastern seaboard. In the late 19th century the impressionist painters subordinated form to color. The American artists were inspired by this movement. The eve of World War I found art in America in a sterile and bleak time. The iconoclasts desired to overthrow the established standards. They stated that a painting is an independent object. In this philosophy of art, shapes and colors are more important than what they represented. However, the naturalistic school does not accept this concept; it coninues to believe that art is a reportorial process to be conducted by skilled craftsmen. Mrs. Murphy took her definition of Abstract painting from "The Modern Renaissance in American Art." "Abstraction means taking from some subject certain elements and from it creating a new entity with accented or different meanings. As meaning becomes more obscure or is eliminated, the role of design becomes increasingly important.'* In dosing sh« said that ever the past 300 years, American painting -has followed a course as unpredictable as the changing temper of the times — now savoring the new, now re- examing the old, testing native invention against imports from abroad, or abandoning past experience for the adventure of fresh experiment. The club's next meeting will be on Nov. 10 at the home of Mrs. David O'Leary.
