Why Read to Your Children?
Here's Excellent Book .List
Sculptress Is
Known to
Artists are born and not made.
That is the general verdict, but a
few there are who prove otherwise.
Some of them just "happen." Such
was the case of Mrs. Sally James
Farnham, sculptress of the widely
acclaimed Bolivar statue presented
to the United States by the govern
ment of Venezuela. The bronze was
unveiled several weeks ago at Cen
tral Park in New York City, where
it will remain.
When convalescing from a serious
illness a number of years ago Mrs.
Farnham accidently discovered her,
latent ' talent. Idle hands longed
tor a pastime and the invalid
began to fashion small figures from
clay. Friends were surprised at her
exceptional ability, for until that time
Mrs. Farnham had never, even in her
most fanciful dreams, imagined an
artistic career.
And then, you say, she immediately
commenced to study modeling under
an excellent instructor. You are
right. Experience became her teach
er and, unaided, Mrs. Farnham slow
ly unfolded the priceless gift be
stowed upon her. She spent no time
in art schools, learning dry rules and
theories, but begar to accomplish
the desired results in an incredibly
short time.
It has been with unusual interest
that a number of Omahans have
watched this wonjan "mold" her way
to fame. E. S. Westbrook and Dr.
W. O. Bridges, when small boys,
lived in Ogdensburg, N. Y., where,
as Sally James, the sculptress spent
her girlhood.
She was the daughter of Edwin C.
James, a wealthy lawyer of New
York City, and her grandfather was
Judge James of Ogdensburg, mem
ber of a pioneer family of New York
state. Her mother was a member of
the Perkins family, pioneers in Penn-
I have been watching two groups
of little children at play. " The chil
dren of one group spend most of
their time themselves up
and down the sidevalk in various
sorts of vehicles, kiddie cars, tri
cycles, toy automobiles and wagons,
in gazing at( the traffic and, various
happenings of the street; in going
to the store for candy, and now and
again chasing each other about..
The other group is always 'ener
getically "playing something," lively
outdoor games, and dramatic repre
sentations of Indians, fire depart
ments. Red Cross first aid, piants,
farmers, explorers, builders. These
and endless other imitative plays all
have their turn.
Whv should the little bov of the
first group sit drearily on the door
steps when left to himself, appar
ently waiting for something or
somebody to come along and en
tertain nun?
Why should the little girl of the
second group sit under a lilac bush
holding in her hand a switch tipped
with a yellow dandelion head, and,
like a dainty fairy queen touch
everything nearby with her magic.
gold-tipped wand, so absorbed in her
imaginative play that she is entirely
oblivious of passersby?
Ihe answer is easy. Une child
has an undeveloped imagination; and
the other a mind so full of pictures
that she has unfailing resources for
all unoccupied hours Or moments.
Let me urge you, parents who
read these lines, to make a practice
of reading to, your' children every
day of their lives until they arc able
to do it for themselves.
The librarian of any public library
will gladly select and furnish the
books you .need.
Your effort and sacrifice will be
repaid 100 fold in the happy home
hours which your children will never
forget, in a wealth of play material
for the time they must fill by them
selves, and in a mental equipment
for later years whose value cannnot
be overestimated. '

sylvania, many of whom are now
prominent in circles of finance in
New York.
The artist has three grown chil
dren, Judy, James and John. James,
who has recently been in Cuba, went
to New York by airplane to
surprise his mother at the unveiling
ceremonies of the Bolivar statue.
The daughter, Judy, who has com
pleted her education, was at one time
enrolled at Bristol school where she
was a roommate of Mrs. Shaji Osato
of this city, formerly Frances Fitz
patrick of Washington, D. C. The
girls spent many of their vacations
together, both at the Fitzpatrick and
Farnham homes and Mrs. Osato de
veloped a close friendship with her
schoolmate's mother.
Among the other Omahans who
know Mrs. Farnham are Mrs. West
brook, Mr. and Mrs. Ward M. Bur
gess and Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Nash.
Mrs. Farnham is now a woman
of about 50 years of age, still
handsome in appearance, though not
quite as beautiful as in her youth,
according to those who know her.
Her once red ha!r, is now a rich
auburn and her athletic figure is yet
as supple as in former years. , She
is considered an all round athlete
and ,is an expert equestrienne. Her
love of horses clearly shows itself in
her many pieces of work. She has
a particular talent for modeling the
fiery steeds she understands so well.
The Bolivar statue stands 35 feet
high and has been adjudged one of
the finest works of its kind. It is
a memorial to Simon Bolivar, the
South American liberator. Astride
his horse, the champion of freedom
is hurrying onward to accomplish
mighty deeds in behalf of his fellow
men. The huge, snorting animal
seems about to break . the bonds of
bronze and go galloping away with
the great Bolivar.
Mrs. Farnham originally submitted
a very tiny model of this statue in
an international contest held by Veiu
ezuela and was awarded the task of
making a fitting memorial for the
general. It is said Col. William
llayward, a former Ncbraskan, posed
for the torso of the figure, and the
horse used is one belonging to Pierr
