Maligned Prize-Winning Watercolor Removed From Wall BALTlMOKE Mi — A much- maligned prize-winning walercolor was definitely off the wall of the Peale Municipal Museum today, but slill held its foothold jn the building. And it had a vote of confidence from Director Wilbur H. Hunter Jr. 'Die picture by Glenn Walker, a local artist, shows a man and woman, both nude, lying on a bed. It won two awards in the mil- serum's "Life in Baltimore" show. But on Nov. 10, Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro saw il. He called il "obscene" and "morally objectionable" and ordered it taken down. Museum employes complied, removing it to the director's office where they allowed anyone who asked to view it. Museum trustees, meeting yesterday, upheld the action. But Mayor D'Alesandro and former Mayor Howard Jackson wanted more. "If the picture is not fit to be exhibited publicly, it ought not to be on the premises," said Jackson. "I agree," said D'Alesandro, "Don't you think keeping it hers will turn this place into some sort of peepshow." 4-H Club To Meet The LaVale 4-H Club will meet tomorrow al 1:30 p.m. at the LaVale Fire Hall.
