THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1939. THE DATLY COURIER, CONNBT^SVrLl-E. PA. PAGE SEVEN/ EVANGELIST DEMANDS NUDE PAINTING BE REMOVED FROM ART MUSEUM IN ST. LOUIS By United Press. ST. LOUIS, Feb. 9.--Rev. Mary Ellis, 65, Philadelphia evangelist and anti-vice crusader, said she had never seen a nude as naked as the one in Thomas Hart Benton's painting, "Suzanna and the Elders." She demanded that the painting be removed from the St. Louis Art 1 Museum where it is in exhibition ! with works of other contemporary j United States artists. She came here last week from St. Petersburg, Fla., where she had conducted an anti-vice crusade, to halt the sale of sexy magazines and · was surprised" to find Benton's painting in a prominent position in the museum. She and eight St. Louis ministers and 150 followers held a protest meeting yesterday and began circulation o£ petitions demanding that the museum director and Mayor Bernard Dickmann remove the painting. If they don't, she said, she will lead a demonstration in front of the museum next Sunday. "The nude," she said, "is stark naked. Its lewd, immoral, obscene, lascivicious, degrading, an insult to womanhood and the lowest expression of pure filth. It leaves nothing to the imagination." "Suzanna and the Elders," represents an incident from the Apocrypa and the Douay version of the Bible, but Benton, whose works often have been the target for moralists, transferred the story to the Ozarks. His painting shows Suzanna seated on the bank of a creek, her clothing strewn about her. Her hair is waved in modern fashion and she is pointing with a red-tipped finger to the high heels on her shoes. Two elders, looking on with rapt gaze, in the bushes behind her. An automobile and country church complete the background. "One of those 'elders' looks like a farmer," Hev. Ellis said. "The other looks like a bum. It's vile and horrible particularly with the church in the background." She believed museum directors would ignore her protests for a time and that she and her followers would have to collect thousands of signatures on the petitions before the painting is r' moved. The directors permitted its exhibition last week after having rejected it once for being "very nude." Benton had been informed at his Kansas City home of Rev. Ellis' objections to bis painting and that she had described it as the study of a woman, not nude, but "just stark naked." "That's funny as hell," he said. Denies "Cruelty" Mrs. David Brown, name she gave authorities at San Francisco, is pictured -with one of her dogs after arrest on charges of cruelty to animals. Police allege sha had thirty six dogs which "were undernourished and starving:, that thc-y wore being used in a study of "hereditary temperament."

WILLIAMSPOBT, Feb. 0--A local agitation for the lighting of river bridges, resulting from attacks upon two women in 10 days, took a comic turn here recently when unknown persons raised, kerosene torches upon the structure. Beneath the nicker- ing lights we're placards appealing: "Light the Bridge!" WASHINGTON, - Feb. 3.-Chairman William O. Douglas of the Sureties and · Exchange Commission, opening the National Monopoly investigating Committee's study of in- furance companies, Monday assured policy holders that the committee will develop nothing to jeopardize their interests. Douglas said the inquiry--the first compresensive study of insurance company practices since 1906--would not attack or question the adequacy of rese'rves of any company. Under state laws, he said, "the legal reserve companies are required to set aside in restricted investments funds sufficient to assure that each policy holder will receive the amount of his policy when his risk matures." "No policy holder need have any concern that any faet brought out in this inquiry will in any way jeopardize the protection which he counts upon through his insurance policy," he said. Douglas promised the committee that the SEC would present "incontrovertible facts" on the manner in which insurance companies fmploy "the vast economic power they hold." The SEC will attempt to show, he said, the method by which insuj snce managements attain and retain their power. LAST RITES HELD FOR MRS.
