Popular public radio shows threatened The Daily Pantagraph, Tues., March 3, 1981 B-5 WASHINGTON - Some of the most popular programs on National Public Radio may be eliminated by the Reagan administration's proposed budget cuts in public broadcasting. "All Things Considered," the 90-minute daily news-and-feature program, the two-hour "Morning Edition" and "Jazz Alive" are among the programs NPR officials say are likely to be canceled if the Office of Management and Budget plan is approved by Congress. That proposal would cut 25 percent from the budget of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, NPR's parent agency, and phase out national program production in favor of local broadcasting. "I think it's an unintentional abolition of public radio," said NPR President Frank Mankiewicz. "If this proposal is adopted, every one of our national programs will be off the air by September." At issue is the forward-funding system applied to CPB and its various branches, including NPR's $14.1-mil-lion federal funding for fiscal year 1981. The OMB has submitted a proposal to Congress to enact a recision of CPB's 1982 appropriations, which were approved in 1980.

Ceramic arts show at IWU By Jane Hallett The work of 10 ceramic artists now on view in the Merwin Gallery at Illinois Wesleyan University lives up to its title, "Current Trends in Clay." The group represent a cross-section both geographically and stylistically of the contemporary clay scene and the many ways of dealing with the ceramic medium. A variety of forms both wheel-thrown and hand-built are found. Newcomers and established ceramists are included in the show of utilitarian and fanciful ceramics. As varied as are the objects, the viewer is always conscious of clay as the unifying element. Most of the work is small in scale or no larger than life-size, and not at all in the vein of the sculptural pieces by Peter Voulkos and his California disciples. Nor are there many evidences of the funky styles of the past. The five-piece place setting, bowl and platter by Rick Hensley present traditional white porcelain at its finest. The surface decorations are done in russet, blue and green in a Reviewer Jane Hallett is a graduate student in art history at Illinois State University. manner reminiscent of Oriental cali-graphy. Susan Kowalczyk uses earthenware clay to create large tiles which call to mind the Alham-bra in Granada. Slip and glaze are applied to create a complex pattern on the already scored surface that is divided into numerous small squares. Jenny Lind comes to ceramics out of painting and these sensibilities carry over into her porcelain pieces. The natural distortion that occurs when she paints on the three dimensional surfaces of her pieces is used to good advantage in "New Mexico Landscape." She is more whimsical in the jug with the two pigs perched atop it titled, "Just Lookin'." Ritual vessels and icons have been fabricated by Jens Art Morrison for his imaginary culture, Farmounian. The whiteware constructions show a similarity to Egyptian pictographs, although he is making a reference to the time he lived in Iowa. The most traditional ceramic shapes are found in the bottles and covered jars of Don Pilcher. They continue the favorite globular forms long used by Pilcher, but they no longer have the dark, rich glaze of the past. Now the surfaces have a deep brown matte finish with tiny specks of white randomly scattered .over them. Ron Pivovar presents more functional pieces such as a tea set and a group of bowls inside which the white glaze appears to have been applied with a finger. The tall bud vase is unique in that the tall slender base is pierced and the small top cup is the vase to hold the flower. A large, slim raku fired vessel by Donna Polsano exhibits all the dark, rich tones one expects from this type of process. The shape is classical and simple, but the two pieces of copper wire that serve as staples arrest the eye as it skims over the surface. Niles Wallace's large human heads call to mind the Easter Island monoliths. However, these heads have fanciful animals on top of them. "Jonah" has a whale on his flat head. Each head retains the finger marks made by the artist as he manipulated the clay. A stylized trident form appears in all the works, even in Wallace's wall plaques and must have some symbolic meaning. The small unglazed slabs by Paula Winokur appear to be aerial views of some unknown fields or cemeteries. The small tableaus are stained with pastel colors and delicate lines are drawn to indicate roads or paths. Joe Bova's witty combination of animals and human heads are amazingly realistic. The "Devil Hog" looks fierce, but the "Sleeping Pig" seems almoat pettable. The most amusing piece is the large head of a man whose face is covered with warts. Could it be due to the toad perched on top? The large heads are wheel thrown and then finished by hand. The exhibit will remain on view through March 15. The gallery is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Sundays and 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays. Auditions planned for N.Y. theater CHICAGO - The Circle in the auditions in Chicago April 10.
