He sums up is distinctive achievements as ne of the most traveled pliolo- oitrnalisls -- stalling in Africa n 1931 at age 22 -- with this modest appraisal: "What I am rying to do more than anything else is to observe life."

TO 'TRAP' LIFE What led to it is decribecl in public Bresson's 1952 text. He had returned from Africa in 19112 and was convalescing in Marseille. "I had just discovered the Leica," he wrote. "It became the extension of my eye, and I have never been separated from it since I found it. I prowled the streets all day. . .determined to 'trap' life -- to pre- serve life in the act of living. Above all, I craved to seize the whole essence, in Hie confines ol' one single photograph, of some situation that was in the process ot unrolling itself before my eyes."

STIMULATE VIEWERS "I leave it up to those who leaf through these pages to an- ·er the questions the photo- aphs may pose or those that ay arise in their minds," says artier-Bresson. "In other ords, the photographs should rve to stimulate the viewers' vn reflections." My own reaction is to marvel his ability to capture the in- grity of a scene without in- uding on or disturbing its vis- al eloquence. He seems to be i invisible artist who assem- es the vital elements of a sto- /-telling situation and molds em esthetically within the orders of a 35mm frame. And ? does it picture after picture!

Nixon's right lung has begun to dissolve, his doctor reports. In his daily medical bulletin Tuesday, Dr. John C. Lungren said tests showed no new clot had developed since the former president began taking anticoagulants. Lungren said that the clot :h,at moved from Nixon's left leg through his heart and into ;he right lung was being naturally absorbed into his system. The clot was created by chronic phlebitis in Nixon's left leg. Nixon is still undergoing tests.

The storage tank s another large piece of hardware needed in solar heating since it - must hold enough hot water to last for periods when there is no sun. Although solar energy is only, in its embryonic phase, research is going on to make smaller and more efficient collectors. One project uses parabolic "concentrating collectors" which track the sun, always tilted at the correct angle to face the sun directly. These collectors are only 6 square feet, less than one per cent of the size of the flat-plate collectors. They are also capable of attaining temperatures far higher than those reached by the flatplates. Remember when televisior first took hold and every roof legitimate gripe if one of your neighbor's trees grows tall enough to cast a shadow on your collector.

The total value of the 1973 cotton crop -- lint and seed -on one million acres was $211 million. This year in Arkansas, there are 325.00 more acres planted in cotton, but the value of the crop may be about the same. · Boll development was retarded by heavy rain in August. The rain also nurtured leaves at the same time farmers were trying to defoliate. Defoliation of plants is necessary because the cotton bolls develop better with fewer leaves in their way. Also, the leaves are obstructions to mechanical pickers. The arbed -spindles of the pickers must come into direct contact made, and it may shifting of habits cause some and values For instance, you may have a vith the bolls.

As one of the founders of the Magnum picture agency in 1917 (with Robert Capa, Werner Bischof and David "Chim" Seymour -- all later killed on foreign assignments), his' work has appeared in the world's leading magazines. His assignments have taken Bresson, who is possessed of a fine sense of journalistic intuition, to remote and inaccessible areas of historic importance before they mada newspaper headlines . .. areas like India in 1947 and 1948, S i n g a p o r e , Hong Kong, Shanghai, Nanking and Peking (before and during the Communist takeover in 1949), Egypt in 1950 and the Soviet Union in 1954. Books have preserved the memorable pictures resulting j'om these travels as well as visual observations since then of his native France, Europe and the United States. . TOP CALIBER The Henri Cartier : Bresson museum byline is also of top caliber. He is the only photographer to have had two one- man exhibitions at the Louvre, the most prestigious in France. Among others, his pictures have hung at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Grand Palais in Paris and the Phillips Museum in Washington D.C. It was to be expected, there- lore, that a major museum ex- libition of Bresson's pictures of the Soviet Union would be announced. What makes it more newsworthy, however, is that it be an inagural exhibition .. . one that marks the exciting opening of New York City's newest photographic shrine, the International Center of Photography, under, the direction of Cornell Capa, on Oct. 29, and that B'resson will be present personally. The exhibition of approximately 100 prints will include lictures of Bresson's first visit o the Soviet Union in 1954. At hat time, it was an unprecedented privilege granted to a oreign photographer to he able ,o focus behind the Iron Cur- ain. The depth of view, which spans two decades of time, produces a photographic document of significant, sensitive report- ige which bears the Bresson brand of decisive momenta among people and in a land strange to us.

I hear that people can get supplemental security income payments if they agree to get rid of their resources over 1,500. Is there a time limit? A. People with little or no neome who are 65 or over or blind or disabled may get iupplemental security income payments conditionally if they agree to dispose of resources over $1,500 within the limits -generally 6 months for real property and 3 months for personal properly.
