FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Nolghbor't) By Dick Palmtr FROM THE ATTIC TO THE VAULT As I write this column and contemplate the mountains of dirty snow, the date line of April 1 has an aura of unreality. By that date there may well be boating in the ravine. It has been good hobby weather in between attacking the drifts at least for looking thru stamp mixtures, sorting thru coins and mounting accumulated odds and ends. My good friends at the post office chided me for the suspension of educational effort, but the next day found them sitting it out waiting for mail to arrive. Even the students now have a blah reaction to snow vacation and it will be even more so when those extra days in June are upon us. For that matter, I will go on record now with a unanimous blah from the teaching staff. If the legislature permits the state department to put over this arbitrary larger school program that could encompass half a county, the problems of transportation will become" Increasingly more difficult. It does seem to me that the state department is sometimes rather demanding, considering the rather small percent of the bill they pay. - o - Well, back to hobbies. Linn's has completed the annual stamp derby poll of its readers to select the best design, the least necessary commemoration and the worst design. The Homemakers sampler design won the prize in a fairly close race with the Jerked Down painting by Charles Russell. I have never felt that it was entirely fair to enter the famous paintings series with the others since there is really little design involved. At any rate, I didn't think the Russell painting came out particularly well in stamp-size dimensions. At the bottom of the best design list was the Radio Hams effort. I would have rated it much higher. The Fine Arts stamp received the' most votes in the least necessary category and the worst design department. It clearly belonged at the top in the worst department, for the simple reason many considered the stamp as a tribute to modern art, thus distorting its purpose. It received 9,782 votes for the worst with the Radio Hams receiving 3,634. This is one of the most decisive rejections in the history of the poll which is perhaps indicative of the prevailing attitude to color blobs that are passed off as art. The Kennedy memorial which I rated as the worst design placed number three with 3,109 votes. 998 voters considered the winning Homemakers design the worst, so you certainly can't please everyone. I thought it strange that seven themes were considered more "necessary than the Kennedy memorial. To my mind, this stamp would rank as the most necessary for the year. Some 200 voters thought it more Important to advertise the New York Fair than pay tribute to a murdered President. With all due respect to the little woman, 3,884 votes questioned the necessity of honoring her with a stamp. It would be interesting to take a nationwide poll of all homemakers to see how many know that they were so honored. I don't know if a study has ever been made to determine the impact of postal commemorations on the general public. I suspect that the Christmas series would be most generally noted. While some 7,700 cast doubts upon the necessity of honoring the fine arts and music in general, only 303 questioned honoring the work of a specific painter, Russell. The stamp with the most consistant placing in the three catagories was the Shakespeare. It ranked 7th in best design with 1,556 votes, 5th as worst design with 2,236, and 7th as laast necessary with 1,461. This poll did not require a placing of all the issues. Voters listed three in each category and I assume that the totals reflect a point value for each placement. Gordon C. Morison, 120 Klink Road, Rochester, New York, 14625, is the secretary of the United Postal Stationery Society. Membership is worldwide. Sales circuits covering general foreign, U. S. post cards and U.S. entires and cut squares, plus various special publications are offered to members. This is an interesting and "underdeveloped" field which I have commented about in previous columns. My letter from the secretary was enclosed in the new eagle design stamped envelope, the first I have received. Needless to say, I used postal stationery when I wrote to him.
