Iheard the remark, 'The Phillips myersary^a yearj-md a half ago,(Collection is my favorite museum in America if not in the entire world 1 ? That remark is a refrain." The principal reason is that the collection retains the homelike atmosphere it had when it opened to the public in 1921 as one gallery in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Duncan Phillips. PHILLIPS? whose'grandfather was a co-founder of the Jones Laughlin Steel Co., dedicated j his life to his art collection from shortly after his graduation from Yale in 1908 until his death on May 9, 1966. His widow, Marjorie, a painter of considerable talent, succeeded him as director. Now she plans to retire next month and pass the title on to their son, Laughlin. The privately endowed collection equals or surpasses that of public museums in all but the largest cities. A list of major acquisitions in the years 1916-70 numbers more than 760, only a fraction of which can be exhibited at one time. It is generous in lending pictures to other galleries for special exhibitions, and in turn has I sponsored a continuing series of i loan shows. One of the most distinguished' of these, for the anniversary LAUGHLIN PHILLIPS New Director finest Impressionist painting in the United States-a shimmering mass of color 51 by 68 inches in size.

In an eight-page decision., Common Pleas Judge John P.j Hosier cleared officer Paul J. Walsh Jr. of charges of "unsatisfactory conduct," and ordered that his reinstatement be retroactive to July 20, 1967. If the ruling stands, Walsh would be eligible .for at least $46.000 in back pay, and perhaps as much as $55,000. According to Walsh's testimony in his suit against the Civil Service Commission, a fellow officer framed him after he discovered that the officer was he had arrested tred to tell himipleted a year of law school «t j that they had paid protection.

It traveled to the Art Institute of Chicago and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts which helped to sponsor it. * * * JOH N REWALD, art historian and biographer of Cezanne anc other artists, wrote in the cata logue for that exhibition: "The Phillips Collection, without the resources of many other museums, is still the most endearing one in this country, a museum with which the first contact is fondly remembered by all who have gone there to study famous and much reproduced canvases but discovered, with surprise and delight, that it is also a place where pictures :an be enjoyed." Duncan Phillips once wrote that his goal was "an intimate gallery where art can be at home," and this has remained Lhe key to its charm, although the family moved out in 1930 when the c o l l e c t i o n overwhelmed the living quarters. As its holdings continued to grow, a new wing was added in 1930 to the 1897 house, located iear Massachusetts Avenue's Embassy Row. But there are still comfortable chairs and so- 'as, carpeting and green plants. My a few years ago did ash- rays disappear, by decree of the insurers.
