HXfJ h 4 Wrr
A steady stream of art lovers
viewed the Fine Arts society exhibit
of contemporary paintings and sculp
tures of Gutzon and Solon Borglum
at the Hotel Fontenelle for the free
exhibit Sunday. Following the pop
ular concert at the Auditorium for the
Associated Charities benefit, the gal
lery was crowded.
The Borglum bronzes prove the
special drawing card, since this is the
first opportunity most Omahans have
had to view the works which have
made these two native sons famous.
ThesLincoln seated figure and the
head of Lincoln are prime favorites.
Children flocke(t to the exhibit in
great numbers and proved themselves
keenly observant art critics.
One young Omahan, son of a ma
tron prominent in the art society,
studied the seated Lincoln intently,
noting the tall hat which reposes by
the side of the martyred president
"Mother, I'm trying to imagine that
hat on Lincoln and I'm wondering
if it would just fit him. It looks
rather too large," was his comment.
Mother dutifully explained that in
the '60s hats were not worn to fit
so precisely as nowadays.
Members of the exhibition commit

Plattsmouth, Neb., Nov. 20. (Spe

drygoods lines and will carry ladies'
furnishings, including tailored suits,
and cloaks. Another man has decided
to establish a book bindery here, a
line which Plattsmouth never did
have, and having been in that business
for the greater portion of his busi
ness career and knowing the busi
ness thoroughly, he will no doubt suc

confectionery business and will carry
a line of soft drinks to sell. Another
has said that he intended to operate a
pool hall. Another will enter into
business in Omaha and the other two
have as yet not decided as to what
they will do, although one will enter
some line here in Plattsmouth.
