"Southern Illinois is full of talent, and the community as well 6s the school and the university has an obligation to find it and to give it a hospitable environment," he declared. Shryrock credits magizines with having stimulated nationwide interest but deplores the lack of financial support for the arts. "Foundations of the country are pouring millions into scientific re search, but the percentage extend philanthrophy to the arts is relatively small," he said. Shryock this summer participated in the second National Conference on the Arts in Education, attended by educators in the various areas of art. At the request of the White House, the American Council for the Arts in Education is undertaking a national research, educational and promotional program "to make Ameri can citizens aware of the importance of all creative arts in their lives," he said. "One of the most significant facets of the conference," Shry ock said, "was'the emphasis on the dance as one of the fine arts.' Enrollment of students major Ing in the School of Fine Arts a Southern — which embraces aft, music and design — has more than doubled in the last few years and the new General Studies Program prescribes a course in either art or music. If communities want to develop a community arts center, Shryrock said, the University stands ready to counsel in the planning of both the physical facility and the program. Beginning artists might find benefit in the televised art education courses given over WSIU- TV (C.hannel 8).
