FtffcK HI* (Ml.) Red.. NUy 22. 1974 Vi«t veteran given help JUPITER, Flfl (AP) - A disabled Vietnam veteran who wants doctors to amputate his injured leg so he can hold a job has been deluged with offers of help. "I never knew people could be so wonderful," Don Dagenhart, 23, said Monday of the outpouring of offers of help that followed published stories about his plight. The ex-sailor has had seven operations on his left knee since injuring it in a 1970 service football game, yet pain from the injury has kept him from holding a regular job. He said he was facing eviction from his apartment for not paying the rent and had even sold his infant son's crib for $10 to raise money. A Veteran's Administration medical panel has refused to amputate the leg and, despite the fact that he can't work, the VA has given him disability payments of just $77 per month, Dagenhart says. An aide to Rep. Paul Rogers, D-Fla., said arrangements were being made with the VA in Miami for a review of Dagenhart's disability status to see if his monthly payments can be raised. "It's absolutely fantastic," said Dagenhart. "1 keep thinking I'm going to wake up and find it was all just a dream." Brazil's 'primitive' art booming AVANT GUARD?—Nelson dos Santos, who started out as a guard at Rio de Janeiro's Museum of Modern Art, with one of his montages, part of a boom in the Brazilian so-called school of "primitive" art. ByLORALGRAHAM RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP)—A boom in the Brazilian school of so-called "Primitive" art is ending prices skyrocketing. Visiting gringos arid upper-crust citizens of this South American country who like to see their names in local newspaper society columns are shelling out hundreds of dollars for simple watercolors of street scenes and seascapes and montages of birds and flowers. The big question: Is it authentic or merely a ripoff? Critics here are skeptical. Some of the new artists actually are humble men and women who started out as unskilled workers and were inspired to become artists. Others frankly admit they grind out "primitive" pieces because they know the market for them is hot now. U.S. banker David Rockefller recently visited Brazil and paid $120 for a montage by local artist Nelson dos Santos, who said he bought the materials for his creation in dime stores and junk shops for around $15. Santos, 48, started out as a watchman at Rio's Museum of Modern Art. "I didn't know anything about art before I got this job," he declared. But now he harbors dreams of becoming an international figure in the art world. The U.S Consulate- General and the American Chamber of Commerce in Rio recently sponsored an exposition of Santos' work. Pedro Paulo da Conceicao, 30, was earning around $50 a month as a freelance house cleaner until he discovered "primitive" art a couple of years ago. He now makes $400 a month selling paintings at a Sunday "Hippie Fair" in Rio's chic Ipanema neighborhood. "I can knock off about 15 paintings a day," Conceicao said. "I stick to solid colors, because it's easier and faster." Arnaldo Carvalho de Morals, 23, dropped out of school at an early age and spent most of his young life trying to scrape up enough to live on, through carpentry and other odd jobs. Now he is much better off, telling paintings at the "Hippie Fair" to American tourists and rich Brazilians. Morals specializes in colorful, traditional scenes from the northeastern state of Bahia: sugarcane fields, steep cobblestone streets leading to old churches, and Negro women cooking native dishes on the sidewalks. He has never been to Bahia. Evandro Norbim, a 39-year- old electrical engineer, also has cashed in on the "primitive art" boom, but with a variation. When he gets tired, he hands the paint and brushes to his wife, Ana Esther, who grinds out colorful street scenes in the same stereotyped style. The Norbims currently gross around $1,700 a month-ta a country where the average per- person income is $500 a year. Most of their customers are Americans. These painters represent what William Moore, an American art critic living in Brazil, calls "consumer art." Brazilian primitive art is a function of tourism," she says. "Tourists 'who come to Brazil are attracted to primitive works, because what they really want is a souvenir. They don't get genuine art." "Primitive painters use the same tired subjects over and over again: macumba (a Brazilian voodoo cult), black women in traditional costumes, fishermen, street scenes. If they ever left that rigid style, they would lose their market," Moore added. Few Brazilian art critics take the so-called "primitive school" seriously. Despite the fact that more and more "primitive" works are turning up at fancy galleries here, noted critic Walmir Ayala writes that of the 600 new art expositions a year in Rio, "maybe 50 are worthwhile." Nonetheless, the "primitive" painters and sculptors keep turning out new canvases and creations. And people keep buying them. "Primitive" artists who graduate from sidewalks or outdoor fairs to big tourist hotels or chic Rio galleries increase their incomes tremendously. Paintings in an art shop next to the famous and expensive Copacabana Palace Hotel range in price from $300 to $800. Fergis falls (Mi.) Jnnal Wed., Hay 22,1974 19 WASHINGTON (AP) - Per- capita consumption of red meat is expected to rebound sharply this year from a 13-pound drop in 1973 but still trail the near- record set two years ago, says the Agriculture Department. The yearly per-capita rate of meat consumption—based on carcass weights—was 175.5 pounds last year, down from 188.9 set in 1972. The record was 191.8 pounds in 1971. Looking ahead to larger production this year, the department said in a food situation report Monday that nearly one- half of the drop in 1973 will be regained, with per-capita consumption of beef accounting for most of the increase. ON THE HOUSE By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Because it is an engineered product, hardboard is sometimes considered a synthetic. It isn't. It is made from logs that have been converted to chips, then to wood fibers, which are permanently bonded together under heat and pressure into panels. The strength and density of hardboard have given rise to another myth: that it is difficult to handle. Again, it isn't. Being basically a wood product, it can be worked with ordinary woodworking tools if certain principles are followed. For cutting straight edges, a cross-cut handsaw is recommended with 8 to 12 teeth per inch. If a circular power saw is used, either a cross-cut or a combination blade will do. However, for an extensive amount of cutting, use a carbide-tipped blade. All cuts should be made from the face side to minimize face damage. When cutting with a band saw, use metal type blades with 7 or 8 teeth per inch. Use carbide- tipped blades when routing or shaping. Rough edges may be dressed with a plane, file or sandpaper. Coping hand or compass saws or portable jig- saws may be used to make irregular cuts. (For a copy of Andy Lang's booklet, "Using Hardboard Around the Home," send 30 cents and a long, stamped self-addressed envelope to Know-How, P.O. Box 477, Huntington, N.Y. 11743). Hardboard can be drilled with both hand and power drills, using standard bits. Work into the finish side of the panel. Support the work with a block of wood when possible. For screws and bolts, drill holes to accommodate the shanks. Hardboards >/4 and ft of an inch have superior screw- holding strength for attachment of hinges and hardware. Use sheet metal screws after predrilling holes slightly smaller than the screw diameters. Many types of nails may be used, but for interior work, galvanized finished nails are preferred. Annular-thread or ring-groove hardboard nails also give good'results. Nails should be driven perpendicular to the panel surface. Nail the center of a panel first and work toward the edges. Nail at least v«th of an inch from panel edges. Hardboard may be bent to shape. For large-radius bends which are to be permanently supported by a frame, fasten one edge of the hardboard to the frame, then bend gradually fastening to the frame as you go. Never start at the center of a board. For tight-radius bends, wet or soak the hardboard first. Manufacturers or dealers will provide specific instructions, but never attempt a compound bend.
