Art Association's Anual Exhibit
on in Library Hall -Many
Beautiful Creations
of the Brush.
The annual exhibit of prize pic
tures held bv the Art Association
was opened on tho evening of Dec.
26, and'wlli extend until Jan. 10.
The dlspiay of pictures this year Is
by far tho most complete and boauti
jul or any heretofore attempted, and
art lovers in the city are now be
ginning to realize what is offered to
them for their enjoyment and in
struction. The collection comprises about
eighty pictures direct from the Pan
American Exposition which have
tnken prizes and received honorable
mention by the most noted critics of
the dav, and in addition many
pieces from our own state and city.
Furthermore- there is a very choico
and elegant display of china painting.
The last week, during the Teach
er'f. Association has been a busy one,
and the art hall lias been thronged
all div with sightseers, a large num
ber being from out of the city. Al
most every dav since the exhibition
oponed there has been talks on art
and a review and discussions of tho
pictures by prominent people of the
city pbo the University.
Orlo of tho most conspicuous pic
tures Is tho painting "Truth", which
Is the first to greet the visitors' eyis
as they enter the gallorv. Tho fe
male figure rests her two hands on a
flaming sword and serins to bo em
erging from the darkness and shadow
behind. Tho effect Is lmpresslvo and
solemn. A heautiful marine scene
and a "Gray Morning" are works ot
art which soften and blend their har
mony Into the human thought.
There Is a notlcible abundance of
andscape effects among tuom being
"A Sinner Rain," "Early Evening,"
and "nartard Bridge at Twilight"
which is einsldered one of tho gems
of the collection. Then one may
find strong studies lu life, among
them being "My Gondaller's Kit
chen," "The Singers" and tho excel
lent "Lo Petile Son" a creation by
Miss Clara Walsh.
It Is notlcable that there are only
two flower pieces bjt they aro beautl
ull pieces of work and deserve tho
closest study. Tho work of Miss
Bayden Instruction tho Art School
is all that could bejaesired and thero
are several of her productions In water
color. Among others ro studies of
animal and baby life, a very curious
and yet true study of that unropres
slble onion, and a strong picture of
an Indian's head. An effort will bo
made this week by Professors Hodge
man and Fling to interest the stu
dents in tho exhibition, and a mass
meeting will probably bo held to stir
matters up in the University. A
rate of fifty cents per season ticket
is made to students and the art
association feels that there Is no rea
con why tho students cannot avail
themselves of tho opportunity to
study the work of masters.
It costs tho Association $1,500 to
complete Buch an exhibition and a
argo attendance is necessary for
them to come out even.
In addition it Is tho aim of tho
association to purchase a least one
first class picturo each voar to croato
tho embryo of a State Art Gallery,
having only the best works of art
that can be obtained.
A recent number of "Home and
Flowers" contained an article bv W.
E. Johnson, formerly of Lincoln on
tho botanical gardens in Ceylon. Mr.
Johnson two years ago marie a trip
around the world for the ''New
Voice" and this article Is one of
tho products. A children's story in
a recent number of tho Youth's Onm
paion is by Miss Frances Proy.
Tho Companion In all its announce
ments makes mention of tho series
of Indian tales to be contributed by
May Roberts Clark (Mrs. P. F.
Clark.) Tho January "Outing" has
a "Gryesome War Dance" bvErnest
A. Gerrard. his, like the stories
of Mrs. Clark, Is a tale of the
Pawner Indians.
Stanford University was defeated
in football Jan 1. by Michigan by tho
decided score of 49 to 0. The result
of tho game proclaims toe difference
between eastern and western football.
Michigan's players entirely out
classed their opponents and pushed
the Digskin wherever they wished.
In tho exchange of punti Stan
ford repeatedly lost ground while
they could not regain by any of their
plays. The second half was the finest
exhibition of fast football ever seen
in California, Michigan scoring 32
points. Tho strongest playing of
tho game was done by Michigan's
backs. The game was witnessed by
a record breaking crowd of beveq
thousand petple.
