James Anderson Memorial, Symbol of It is a great pleasure to be able to write that the past has been recaptured. The lost Col. James Anderson Memorial has been rebuilt at great effort in Allegheny Center a few feet from where the original once stood. In a historically stupid act in the 1960s, the first memorial was unceremoniously removed from in front of the Allegheny Branch of The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and probably buried in an unknown dump. If the structure's bronzes had not been saved at the library, there would have been no way to reclaim the sculpture. But in their existence lived the hope that one day the memorial had a second chance at immortality. The reason is noble. Andrew Carnegie donated the memorial to the region to honor the man who opened his personal library to the public when Carnegie was a bobbin-boy. The colonel became a model for Carnegie's giving away some 3,000 libraries around the world. So in effect the exedra memorializes the philanthropic instinct that would come to be the guide to those of wealth and that is still seen in today's giving. Much energy and thought have been spent on redesigning and raising more than $200,000 to place the 1903 bronze bust of Anderson and the allegorical "Labor Reading" back on the exedra, the tall granite bench originally designed by Henry Bacon, architect of the Lincoln Memorial. v f ; ft Unload your dishwasher and clean up!

A queen's credit for this restoration goes to Ann Wardrop, life member of The Carnegie board of trustees and long-time Museum of Art docent, who did what to many seemed impossible. An ardent fan of Carnegie, who did so much for American and world culture, Wardrop had studied Carnegie's life closely and was primed to take on what had to be one of the great challenges in her life. Even so, she said, credit must also go to Dan Rooney, Pittsburgh Steel-ers president, who fondly remembered the memorial from earlier years and helped with funding, as did many foundations, corporations and individuals. The plan was conceived in 1981, but the money to rebuild was mostly gathered in the last five years.

But there it is. Sylvester Damianos did the drawings recreating the Bacon original. The only deviation is that the steps leading to the central platform are not as deep as the original because of the new placement along the walkway facing the library entrance. The project is not yet complete and correction of some staining will be necessary. One of the great discoveries is how the bronzes now appear in their natural placements. They have taken on not just majesty but a fresh sense of increased size and importance. It is because the viewer again looks up at them. The work will be formally dedicated this spring. The second annual "Artists-Teachers Exhibit" in the County Courthouse GalleryForum is a worthwhile endeavor because it gives Pittsburgh art teachers as a group a wider platform than classrooms. Of course some city teachers are regular exhibitors in Associated Artists shows. The incident of the censored announcement (see today's People) was unfortunate. But it was heartening to hear people involved in the matter speak so positively on behalf of artistic freedom, a longstanding tradition here and one we must never retreat from.

An extraordinarily large pen and ink study "Crowquill" with an amazing amount of feathered detail by Daniel Bolick is certain to find wide favor. Charlotte Oliwa Toal's postmodern hard-edge abstracts, Anthony G. Massaro's serial study of an Italian town, Philip Mendlow's wood sculpture of a sleeping woman are among the 26 works that could stand up to scrutiny anywhere. (Through Feb. 5.) What do you do if you love a style that has passed its peak of popularity? If you are Ben Klaas, showing optical abstract paintings at Studio Z Gallery, you persist. I saw Klaas' first show in a Dormont beauty salon years ago and remember his gallery on Library Road in Castle Shannon. There is not too much difference between the paintings of then and now. Klaas' paintings are zingers. If you aren't careful they can send you back to a 1960s psychedelic state. His paintings are well-executed but their ultra-boldness and eye-boggling patterns keep them from being taken as seriously as he would like. If only his conceptions had the subtlety of his brushwork.

Jan. 19 Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Radio and TV officials ponder 'Kids' future By Jane Crawford Post-Gazette Staff Writer "Kids America" is gone, but it's not forgotten. And some of the people who most loudly bemoan its recent demise aren't even kids. They're adults who are radio and television station executives. They're trying to develop a plan that would either return the public radio program to the air or possibly replace it with a similar one. Several radio station representatives from eastern cities met here this week to discuss the situation. The program which, until Jan. 1, was heard in 26 markets and here on WDUQ was targeted toward children ages 6 to 11. It featured live, interactive call-in opportunities for its young listeners. Produced by WNYC radio in New York, the show had a yearly budget of nearly $1 million. It was canceled after three years because of funding cutoffs from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provided half of its production costs, and the Kool Aid Koolers division of General Foods. Judy Jankowski, station manager of WDUQ, is spearheading the effort here to investigate saving or replacing the show. "We wanted to see if there was anything we could do to keep the show," she said. Among the possibilities being considered, Jankowski said, is a statewide show in conjunction with WXPN in Philadelphia which started a local children's show last week with the former co-host of "Kids America," Kathy O'Connell. Obtaining the rights to "Kids America" from WNYC to produce the show or creating a new one were also discussed at the meeting. Funding for any of these ventures would be sought from corporations or foundations, Jankowski said. She believes a similar show could be produced less expensively, for "about half a million dollars to ensure quality," she said. But getting that money is not likely, according to Wallace Smith, vice president and general manager for radio at WNYC, the man who made the decision to cancel the program. "If a station the size of WNYC cannot find funding, it is highly improbable that a station of fewer resources can do it," he said. Smith raises a larger issue about children's shows on radio. "Children's radio is not radio that managers will program. Children will not COME TO CHURCH EPISCOPAL MOVE Of COD Pgh. Revival Cen. Br.

When asked if he thinks children's programs could be successful on commercial radio, he said the chances are "zero." However, if funding had been secured, Smith said he would have continued "Kids America" because he believes that, with some modifications, it could have been more marketable. Smith said there are several parties interested in the rights to the program and he will make a decision about that in a week or two. In what could be considered a curious involvement, KDKA, which operates a commercial radio station here, paid the costs to bring in the six public radio station representatives to attend Tuesday's meeting. Through the efforts of the station's creative director, Arthur Green-wald, KDKA had also committed funds to underwrite the cost of broadcasting "Kids America" locally in 1988. Greenwald said the cancellation of the show is "a shame and in a sense a national disgrace. If there's a system that should be looking out for kids, it's public broadcasting," he said. KDKA-TV has an interest in seeing "Kids America" succeed because of its own on-going commitment to children's programming. KDKA vice president and general manager Joseph Berwanger, who listened to the show with his chil-' dren, said, "There's not anything like what those people were doing on the radio. I thought it was such a unique venture that combined entertainment and education. I'm disappointed but I do understand the realities of funding," he said. Other disappointed listeners have reacted to WNYC. "We've gotten hundreds of letters and phone calls from parents and children expressing their unhappiness about the show," said Liza Vicini, the show's production coordinator. "Some of them even offered to chip in money for the show." Richard Madden, director of the radio program fund for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Washington, D.C., made the decision not to allocate money for "Kids America." He said, "I think the project is one of remarkable contrasts. It is an artistic and promotional success, but a marketing failure. It could generate thousands of calls a day from youngsters, but it can't generate more than two dozen stations to take it."
