IF YOU are at the right place at the right time, it's possible to pick up a philatelic t?eaure which is both unique a& rare. I received such a gift for Christmas from my son-in-law and daughter, Paul and Beth Veenema. . " The Saturday before Christmas the three astronauts of Apollo 15, Dave Scott, Al Worden and James Irwin were at , the University of Michigan, where they were given honorary doctorates. All three are graduates of the university. Beth works In the university guidance office and Paul is a Rood friend of the dean of engineering, who helped plan the reception following the ceremony. As a result. I re-celved four covers, autographed by all three astronauts, postmarked from Cape Canaveral. The one is dated July 26, the liftoff: the next July 30, the landing on the moon; the third July 31, the first moon River expedition, and the fourth, Aug. 7, the splashdown. . - All covers have beautiful cachets and are rare prizes.

' I , A lilcelv reason for the DODU- larity of the cards among phila telists is that, witn a iew ex-ceptions, they feature reproductions of pictorial motifs from stamps. The card produced for the recent New xor uty ajsua Show, for instance, shows the 1930 Graf . ZeDoelin air mail Istamp design. ' Special pages printed in color to match other White Ace pages for U.S. postal issues have been designed for the al bum,' as well as a distinctive binder. Since many of the sou- vpnir rnrria nrA larPfl (RV2XWV1). both the pages and binder will . oe larger man normal aioum size. But the album will be in usual White Ace three-ring looseleaf style. Its price has not yet been announced. So that the album can be kept up to date, supplementary sections will be published annually. m a a Artist James Wyeth says he is receiving scores of letters from persons asking him about the 1971 Christmas stamp ne desiped. They are questioning a word that was used, not his artistry. The stamp, witn a partridge perched over two pears and a cluster of leaves, bears the inscription: - On the first day of Christ mas my true love sent to me." Letterwnters from across the country think it should be , "gave" instead of "sent." The artist says he first used "gave to me," out was told by postal officials in Washington that the original text of the anonymous, ballad said "sent." Wyeth changed U but was sur mised at first oay 'ceremonies Washington Nov. 10 wnen a chorus sang "gave." A top-ranking postal otticiai sitting nearby just looked at me and said, 'What are you going to do?'" recalls Wyeth. He adds Jokingly, "Ever since I was a child, I always heard it sung as 'gave to me.' l guess it's better for the Postal Serv ice to use the word it did." The orisinal painting for the stamp and preliminary drawings for the design are on dis- at tne uranaywme mver useum until Jan. 9. visitors usually pause to look closely at the original artwork to see how the artist redid the word ana pasted "sent" over "gave." Wyeth did all tne design worK for the stamp last spring in Chadds Ford. He originally planned to do a stamp for each of the 12 days of Christmas but was told this would be too cost ly. He says he could not be as free with the design as he want ed to because "it had to be an organized design due to the limited area I had to work in." Wveth disclosed for the first time that he made another re vision In the design that is not noticeable to those viewing the original artwork. "I had 6 U.S. but was told it must be U.S. 8c and changed it," he says. The artist, a member of the Postmaster General's Citizen Stamo : Advisory - Committee, savs letter writers who are col lectors claim this is the only time that they can recall seeing the word 'love" used on an American-designed stamp.
