Members' previews will be held today and tonight. This is the largest loan showing ever staged by the museum in its long, distinguished history. Originally it was planned to launch the museum's development fund drive. The drive is now scheduled to start next January, On view through July 3 will be 354 major paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints and collages by France's grand old master of modern art. Loaned from public and private collections on both sides of the Atlantic, they will fill 18 special exhibition galleries with Matisse's brand of distilled sunshine.

Admission: Adults $1.40 Children (undtr 12) lit A By KEVIN KELLY Glebe Critic The Pulitzer Prize committee often has been guilty of lack of discrimination in its annual awards, or absence thereof, in the field of drama. Erratic in its choice of excellence, the committee frequently has diminished the value of its prize by giving it out as though it were a tin cousin to the Hollywood Oscar. It has lost prestige by bestowing laurels on what is clearly no more than seasonal trash and, on recent occasion, by refusing to honor an eminent play by Edward Albee which had been nominated by two of its advisers. But this year the Pulitzer board, in its refusal to distinguish the theater with an award, has set a standard that is, I think, completely defensible. While playwrights, producers and press agents may grumble, the cold truth is that there was not a single American work produced this season that deserved honor. The pitch of the Pulitzer is aimed strictly at what is designated an "American play." The definition is national, specific and reads as follows: "A distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life." A quick checklist of the plays produced, within the framework of the category, indicates the dearth of possibilities. The committee has mentioned it gave consideration to two works, the musical "Man from La Mancha" and the drama "Hogan's Goat." "La Mancha," a current Broadway hit, is a second-rate song-and-dancer about the 17th century Spanish writer Cervantes and, forgetting the matter of its utter mediocrity, simply doesn't fit the definition. "Hogan's Goat," by Harvard Prof. William Alfred, comes closer. It deals with a political skirmish between Irish-Americans in Brooklyn in the 1890s, but it is really nothing more than a good melodrama. It is not, I think, a Prize play, and to so honor it merely would draw attention to the desperate choices before the committee. The reverse of this argument, however, is that the Pulitzer often has been given to far inferior work than Alfred's play. During the 1920-21 season Zona Gale won it for "Miss Lulu Bett"; during 1952-53 William Inge for "Picnic." And, purely as examples, if either of these plays is remembered, it is remembered not for its merit but because of the imprimatur of the Pulitzer upon its ordinariness. Between its lapses of judgment, the committee has distinguished some deserving dramatists, most notably Eugene O'Neill (a four-time winner), Thornton Wilder, Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. But the record is spotted with incredible interruptions, particularly during the 1962-63 season when the committee overlooked Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," which had been favored by advisers John Mason Brown and John Gassner. Brown and Gassner promptly resigned from the board when the award was withheld. The drama award, incidentally, has been omitted nine times since the Pulitzer first appeared in 1917. The level of judgment was raised considerably last year when the Pulitzer went to Frank D. Gilroy's "The Subject Was Roses," a superb play. And, to repeat my premise, the level continues to be raised by the committee's refusal to cheapen the prize this season by parceling it out to just anything. Bleak as the lack of an award may seem to the theater (and symptomatic as it is to the sad decline of genuine creativity in American drama, it does at least brighten the lustre of what should continue to be a significant, rather than a casual, award. If I may borrow a line from D. H. Lawrence, there is "a voice of education" in the committee's silence.
