"Sea and Shore"
If you have an eye for beauty and an
appreciative soul, then undoubtedly you
have been impressed by the present art
exhibit in the library, called "Sea and
Shore”. If you have not had an oppor
tunity to look at these masterpieces,
then take my word for it and put them
oA your "must list - you won't be
From the very first glance you will
agree the pictures are striking and
pleasing to the eye. As you enter the
library, you see before you a peaceful
scene portrayed ty Wyk, of which the
title is "'Tiie Mill". The uniformity and
perfection worked out in shades of tan
present the illusion of a photograph.
Nov/ the deep, dark side of man comes
out in "The Island of the Dead", by
Boechlin. The setting gives a feeling
of solidness; the dark, death-like cen
ter of the picture tapers into pleasing
brightness, and the figures in the fore
ground are placed perfectly to give the
best effect to the picture.
Monet has contributed some very vi
brant pictures,- "The Boat" and "Re
gatta at Argenteuil". "The Boat" is
skillfully v/orked out with irregular
brush strokes in vivid colors. "The Re
gatta" is a truly striking picture be
cause of its orange and yellow colors
skillfully handled by the master's
Winslow Homer has also contributed
two beautiful pictures, "Sloop", and
"Palm Tree by Nassau". Homer really put
a breeze into the "Palm Tree", and the
picture is so life-like that a person's

that he is really in Nassau about to
board the "Sloop" as soon as a coconut
falls from the "Palm Tree".
Probably the most successful painter
of misty, dreamy scenes was Whistler.
He excelled at painting river scenes
in England while the mist hung heavily
over the Thames. "Nocturne", Whistler's
contribution to the collection, is pos

Everyone at the Hazleton Undergraduate
Center already knows or at least has
seen Mr,. Robert J. Taylor, the new in
structor in English. Girls, don't get
excited, for he is not the movie actor,
even though their names are the same.
Mr. Taylor is a New Englander, his
home being in Springfield, Massachusetts.
He obtained his B.A. in 1939 at the Un
iversity of Michigan, and his M.A. in
1941 at The Pennsylvania State College.
In this same year he also received the
added responsibility of a wife. The des
tination of their honeymoon is unknown.
Ho was a teaching graduate assistant
in English Composition for two years.
He is fond of handball, tennis, and
dancing. If he is as good at these as he
is at tearing a theme apart, we'll say,
"Take a bow, Mr. Taylor."
These paintings were secured from
The American Federation of Arts, of
which the Hazleton Undergraduate Center
is a member. Duplicates of the prints
in the library may be purchased, the
prices ranging from three to twenty
The present exhibit will leave the
Center in two weeks. So don't miss your
