Art Galleries Exhibit
Paintings Of Barlach
The first large showing in the
United States of the art work of
Ernst Barlach 20th century Ger
man artist, is now being present
ed by the University Art Galleries.
The exhibit, which opened Sun
day will run through Nov. 27.
Barlach is best known as a
sculptor but has also done much
work as a print maker and illus
trator. In Germany he is equally
well known as a novelist, but his
work has not yet been translated
into English.
During and following World War
I a new movement in "contem
porary" art was begun in Ger
many. Barlach became one of the
leaders in this movement. Because
this form of art, often referred to
as expressionism, seemed to be
against the Nazi doctrine, Barlach
was persecuted and much of his
work was destroyed.
According to Norman Geski, di
rector of the University Art Gal
leries, this exhibit is "an artistic
event of national importance,
Geski describes the works as "mys
tical, gloomy, and philosophical al
though not without humor. The
exploration of the common man
prevails throughout his art."
While wood sculpture was Bar
lach's favorite medium, most of
the exhibition is in bronze cast
after the original. In addition to
the actual work of the artist there
are also pictures and information
about his student days, his trip to
Rusia made in 1906, his studio,
his public monuments, and his con
temporaries. The bronze head of
the Guestrow "Angel" is among
me most lamous of his works.
deski reported that a large
crowd attended the opening of thea
exhibit. Erwin Boll, representative
of the German government was

Santa Claus, reasoned the Ro
manian born artist, need not be
the static figure he is generally
shown to be, repeating the same
humdrum activities year in and
year out. Santa can be anything he
wants and do anything he feels
like, Steinberg believes.
Few artists have dared to
tamper seriously with Santa's ap
pearance for nearly a century. Cle
ment Moore gave a definite de
scription of the old elf in his poem,
"A Visit from St. Nicholas," but it
remained for Thomas Nast, famed
American cartoonist, to depict
Santa's now traditional form in the
1860's. He has remained consist-
On a typical card, Santa might
work some of his unique magic.
He will draw himself, then a girl,
and then both the girl and he will
finish drawing the picture and a
Christmas tree. .

White Tells
Holy Land
Tour Ideas
"The pasion and strength of
Arab-Moslems' political positions
are the results in part of religion
which is a vital everyday exper
ience in their life."
This was one of the impressions
received by Dr. C. Vin White,
pastor of First Presbyterian
Church, on his trip last spring to
the Holy Land.
He spoke Wednesday evening to
the University chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa; national scholastic fratern
ity, on the topic, "Altars on Main-
Dr. White said another impres
sion was "the thrilling experience
of seeing great numbers of men
going to places of prayer and wor
ship. The virility of religion
catches the attention of a Wester
ner, for the men do not outnumber
the women in the churches of
He explained that a traveler is
permitted to see what he wants to
see if he insists upon it.
"The departments of tourism
provide sights and objects accord
ing to the demands of the trade.
This is said not to deprecate the
value of sacred object and loca
tions but is said only to emphasize
that some places and things are of
questionable historical or religious

The girth of Steinberg's Santa
Claus is, in fact, very nearly the
minds one of a kindly, benevolent
Monty Wooley. He owns a variety
of suits, including what appears to
be a Chesterfield coat that is some
times trimmed with fur, sometimes
ornamented with oriental devices.
His weakness is tasseled caps, also
frequently ornamented, and the
tassel itself is a thing of beauty
and originality from which general
ly dangles something resembling a
Christmas tree ornament. On occa
sion his chest is adorned with bril
liant military decorations.
"Steinberg's Santa Claus is pos
sibly the only new and original
Christmas symbol to emerge in
the last thirty years," said a Hall
mark art director recently. And,
fantastic as the figure is, it has
caught the imagination of thou
sands of people who now ask every
year to see the new cards on which

Crop Supports
Still Needed,
Mitchell Says
C. Clyde Mitchell, chairman of
the department of agriculture ec
onomics, outlined the essentials of
what he feels would be a correct
agricultural program at the Dem
ocratic state convention Friday.
Mitchell believes that the prop
er place to adjust disparity be
tween production and consumption
is at the consumer s end. Sur
plus crops, he said, should be
used as part of a program of eco
nomic development administered
through the United Nations to un
derdeveloped nations.
Mitchell said that somewhere be
tween two and three million low
income farm families would need
credit to develop their farms for
more efficient production.
Only after these things are done
can we with economic or political
success abandon any significant
part of our price-support pro
grams," he said. '
