SIX rflASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 1936 DEPARTMENT HEARS DISCUSSION OF MEXICAN MURALISTS Girl Scout Activities Talked Over Council, Committeewome and Leaders Meet for Discussion. At a joint meeting of the Gir Scout council, the troop committee women and the leaders at tie horn .of Mrs. Ralph Lloyd Jones, 704 Eas State street, Tuesday e"ening, a ne\ type of program wa.s conducted. The meeting had been called by th council, with the commissioner, Mis Arcley Marshall, and the secretary Mrs. George Andrick, in charge and 30 members were present. Miss Mashall made a brief ex planation of the purpose of the meet ing, saying that it was the group who organized last year to mee each month with a more or less for mal program. Beoaoee of the de mands on the troops on'the mem bers, such frequent meetings were not satisfactory, so the council de cided to abolish this organization and hold two meetings of this per sonnel a year, the meetings to be called by the council ;oid presided over by the council officers. The purpose of these meetings, con sisting chiefly of a dnected round table and exchange of troop ideas and problems, is to promote a bet ter and closer understanding be tween the council, the troop com mittee and the leaders and to increase the knowledge of scouting in the community. Spring Activities. Announcements of various spring activities were made by Mrs. Howard Barker, the local director. The tentative date for the big ten day camp at Camp Rooscveit was set for June 17-27 and for the spring- SPRING DRESSES Charming . . . when Cleaned the Band Box way.

At the conclusion of these an nouncements Miss Marshall aske Mrs. Ralph Wiley, former camp hairman, to start the round table with a discussion of an all day camp Virs. Wiley reported on the all day camp held at Camp McKinley las October and offered suggestions for ts improvement and for ways ii which the troop committees could be of service. 'How a Troop Committee Can Help as Instructors" was the topic lead by Mrs. H. D. Makeever, chairman o; the troop committee of troop 4. Shi suggested using these people aa instructors in the second class tests and some of .the first class tests, as well as in first aid. Miss Ardene jef was welcomed as an assistan and instructor in first aid for troop "Ten Days at Camp Roosevelt for Ivery Scout" was the topic pre- ented by Mrs. Otto A. Satter, camp hairman, who said that her objec- ive was to make camp possible for greater number of Scouts and ex- lained why this was so to be de- ired. Mrs. Carl Fick, formerly a Scout eader in Hampton, but now the eader of troop 5, explained the gen- rai set-up of a Girl Scout troop. The meeting adjourned for tea id further discussion in smaller ·oups. The consensus seemed to be at this was a successful and help- I type of meeting, and the com- issioner announced another for the beginning of the troop year in September. A. J. Hyslop of Carleton Is Speaker Slides Illustrate Talk at Last Meeting of Group for Season. Explaining- the teehnic of mural art and discussing the two Mexican muralists, Rivera and Orozo, Professor Alfred J. Hyslop of Carleton college, Northfield, Minn., addressed the Woman's club art department at its last meeting: Tuesday afternoon in the . library assembly. Slides of murals by the two Mexicans and by Thomas Benton 'and Professor Hyslop were shown. Professor Hyslop pointed out that it is difficult · to speak of Mexico because the perspective is too recent to allow a complete view of the panorama and because things are changing so rapidly in Mexico. "Mural painting is one of the oldest of arts and evidences of it exist from 2000 B. C.," he said. "There are caves in Spain where pre-historic wall paintings have been found, the figures chiseled in and painted over. They are simple in delineation and idea and the reason behind them is a religious one. Mural Decoration. "Mural decoration progressed through the Greek and Roman periods to the middle ages. This period was not suited to promotion of wall decoration because the architecture was gothic. Mural art survived in the monastaries in the illuminated manuscripts and small altar pieces. It was carried through and ignited in the fourteenth cen- :ury, reaching its highest point in the renaissance. "The transition from the thirteenth to the fourteenth century was within man himself. He found he was able to express himself and was not compelled to accept with iut investigation everything placed 'efore him. This transition is much ike the condition in Mexico today. All That Was Bad. "In the seventeenth century the aroque and rococo came indecad- nt Italian art, representing all that ·as bad and very little that was ood. In the nineteenth century, the ngels of the baroque period were roug-ht down to solid earth and erpendicular and horizontal lines ere observed. "The technique of murals is admirably suited to the climate of Look Ahead to Summer GLOBE-GAZETTE PEERLESS 15 CENT PATTERN 160 Fifth Avenue, New York City by DIANA DAY Attractive Frock Will Be Practical and Charming for Summer Wear; Plan to Make It Now.

Mexico as it is to that of northern Italy. Three coats of plaster are needed, thin and extremely fine The paint is laid on while the plaster is still in a moist state. Over the second coat of plaster a large scale drawing is placed and perforated through to transfer the design on the plaster. The color is applied and adjusted. The worker must know the temperature in which he works, must know how long the plaster will remain moist and how much work he can do in his allotted time. Oaly Earth Colors. "A second drawing is made and placed over the third coat of plaster. The tracing paper is- incised through and then the srtist~goes to work with color. He uses only earth colors, putting in the shadows with black and grey. The final color is washed over the completed drawing. "The Italians believed that attention should be paid to the architectural setting and that lines in a mural should be horizontal and perpendicular, developing the horizontal perspective method." In explaining his own murals which were done for the Buckha Memorial library in Fairibault, Minn., Professor Hyslop said that he was required to use a Greek theme and he chose to do it in the Italian tradition which was the nearest to the classic method. He showed slides of the four panels which represent the contributions of Athens, Olympia. Sparta, Delphi and Perspective Minor. "The second type of mural depends upon pattern for its interest and perspective plays a minor part. The whole sensation is one of movement of quite a rhytumic sort. "The design of a mural should be appropriate to the interest and must have something in common with the building in which it is hung. Once given wall space, an artist is not entirely at liberty to do what happens to please 'him. Orozco believes that there is always an idea in a picture, but never a story. The literary aspect of any picture has no limits because the idea produces certain forms which suggest certain things to people. "Mexico is one of the last medieval countries in the world.

There are many Indian tribes with no wish to progress. They are controlled to a great extent by superstition. Insipid Gleanings. "When it was felt that the an- society and outmoded customs had to go, there was a rebellion of the art students, along with the others, who wanted to throw out the insipid gleanings of European art. During the revolution, the artists followed the armies through the campaigns and mural decoration was born at this time from the lowly parentage of the cartoon. "When hostilities ceased, the vital ideas of the Mexican masses were beginning to appear on the walls of institutions of Mexico, the work of such men as Rivera and Orozco. Rivera is a little more of a politician than Orozco. He expresses himself in a vivid, brutal and satirical manner. He is extremely energetic and very conscious of the mechanical age in which we live." Slides of Murals. Slides were shown of the murals of Rivera, particularly the Detroit, California and Rockefeller Center ones which Professor Hyslop explained. "Orozco has a depth of spirit which Rivera has not, 1 ' the ipeaker said. He explained slides of Drozco murals from the Mexico 3ty boys' school and from the Dartmouth library. In ^concluding, Professor Hyslop pointed out that mural decoration n the United States is coming on and that we need not imitate the Mexicons. "It takes time to develop a good mural painter," he said. "We are removed from contacts with old- r civilizations here in the west and fie may develop something very Following- the lecture, tea was served with Mrs. Howard O'Leary, a member of the art committee, in charge.

Miss Cleone Kollman, president o the Tusalata club, presided during the program which opened with the reading of messages from other as sociations by the Misses Betty Loi Krebs, Frances Dawson and Doris Miller.

Maxine Carmen accompanied the dancers. Miss Marguerite Leutcnneger, ac- by Miss Beth Jordan, led in assembly singing her talk on "Some of the Reasons for the Present Unrest," Mrs. Cerney pointed out that many of us are so proud of being American that we have forgotten what we were before we were American. "We live here, isolated by two great oceans, and wonder why anyone can think of war," she said. "We like our neighbors, Canada and Mexico." European Background. '(It is hard to get at the background of the European people," Mrs. Cerney said, describing the arrival of the Tartar tribes from Asia and Attila and his Huns who crossed the Caipathian mountains in Europe and of the intermingling of the races with the Slavs who were already in southern Europe. "Conquerors have always felt that their civilization should be inflicted upon the conquered. The invasion of Attila and the barbarians almost finished the civilization of Europe." Mrs. Cerney spoke of the Saxons and Jutes of northern Europe and Picts of Scotland, the Anglos and Saxons, the Celts and the Phoenicians and the intermingling of'these tribes to form the various nations of Europe. Protected Homes. "When, at first the nomad tribes settled down, they had just their homes to protect. Later there were walled, cities and finally great countries. It was racially bora and bred into the people to fight. Civ- lization has tried to impress a tendency toward thinking and we are growing mentally. "We have been emotionalized beings instead of thinking beings. We must sublimate the passions we are heir to. from our racial backgrounds, if we are to meet the problems of our generation." Mrs. Cerney spoke of the teachings of Christ and the present lack of understanding of real Christianity." In concluding, Mrs. Cerney told of the conditions of women in various countries in Europe and how much better off WE are in this country than they are in theirs.

ROCKWELL--Initial steps looking to the organization of a Townsend club have been taken here and a public meeting of me' citizens of this locality has .been called for Thursday evening at 7:30 o'clock to Play, Talk on Program at Meeting Dr. T. A. Burke Speaker for St. Joseph P. T. A. at School. St. Joseph P. T. A. members in the educational part of their meeting on Tuesday evening learned from Dr. T. A. Burke of the progress medical science has made in preventing disease. The entertainment side of the program featured the freshmen in a one-act comedy, "The Pampered Darling." Dr. Burke reviewed the outstanding contagious diseases and the principal causes of present-day deaths, showing how medicine has reduced the mortality rate from contagious ills and how it realizes the problem created today by such diseases as heart and kidney trouble, high blood pressure and cancer. A reference to the hypertension of the time as an aggravator of high Wood pressure brought from the doctor a tribute to the almost vanished spirit of neighborliness, spending itself in homes stricken by any hardship. On State Control. State, control of the medical profession, Dr. Burke believes, has greater disadvantages than advantages. His opinion is based on personal observations made in European hospitals, where the work is in government hands. A program of industrial hygiene, the speaker pointed out, should be planned to safeguard men and women who enter industry. Jack McGrane played the pampered boy, Victor Gibbons in "The Pampered Darling," while Ruth Johnson and Lena Cannella acted as his sisters, Connie and Janet Gibbons. Mrs. Perkins, interpreted by Ann Casey, wag the.fourth member of the Gibbons household. In Cast of Play. Companions for the Gibbons young people were as follows: Dudley Field, Clair Edell; Jessica Bacon, Mildred Yount; Joy Gaylord, "Betty Freudenberg; Atinabelie "reen, Anastasia Nelson; Floyd Davis, Jack Delaney.
