speech, Grant Wood addressed all
University audience on "Regional
Art" in the Union, Sunday after
noon. "The prestige and background
of Paris schooling is not necessary
for a present day American artist,
in order to be a success," declared

to France. Wood was asked to

making an "impressionist" paint

Returns to America.
Wood returned from France
with a red beard and a headful of
notions that it was a pity he must
come back to "crude America"
after working with the Latin op
portunities and materials of his
host country. However, he now

and that there is a wealth of aub

that of any country.
