Recent Japanese Art Exhibited

The shadowy gray shapes and
the blurred order of "Living
Thing" by Sachiko Makino, one
of a group of Japanese abstract
paintings on exhibition at the Mu-
seum of Art until Feb. 27, seeks
to peer deeply into the meaning of

of the economics department at

Md., is the largest. Midwestern

Strongly influenced by Western
art, especially abstract expression-
alism, the paintings, possessing
strength and vigor not present in
Oriental art, prove that today's
art often has no national boun-
Past Oriental influence remains
only in the swooping and curving
lines and the calligraphic shapes.
Movement and Masses
"In," a black-and-white paint-
ing by An Furata, is designed
around the Chinese character
meaning "negative. Having all
the power and uninhibited feeling
of a child's finger painting, the
movement and masses of the work
reflect the religious ecstacy with
which Furata is concerned.
Sees 'Shock'
At Crippled
St. John's
Collegiate Press Service
NEW YORK-Striking faculty
members at St. John's University
have charged that the institu-
tion has eliminated classes or re-
duced enrollment in 60 per cent
of the courses they had taught.
"The figures indicate that the
university has suffered a massive
shock and is falling back on des-
perate expedients to cope with the
situation," Dr. Israel Kugler, pres-
ident of the United Federation of
College Teachers, said.
The union has been on strike
at St. John's since Jan. 4 as a
result of the dismissal of 31 teach-
ers without a hearing in mid-De-
cember. The dismissals were at-
tributed in some cases to "un-
professional conduct" on the part
of those who had joined in dem-
onstrations demanding a greater
voice in the university.
Dr. Kugler said that the union
was going to challenge the school's
accreditation with the Middle
States Association of Colleges and
Secondary Schools. A meeting with
representatives of the association
will be held this week, he said.
Kugler said that the decision
was based on information which
indicated that the school has clos-
ed out 225 sections o fa normal
379 offered in six basic subjects
in the College of Liberal Arts.
Most of the striking teachers are
on the liberal arts faculty and
taught these subjects.

"Blue Calligraphic Lines on
Dark Blue" by Jiro Yoshihar is
not only a Japanese letter, but a
projection onto canvas of the
seemingly simple, vague and nev-
er-ending movements of mane
"Two Circles," by Onosato Tash-
inobu is reminiscent of old Japa-
nece folk weaving, yet resembles
Optical Art, in a vibrant and col-
orful Oriental style. The artist
might well be expressing the foun-
dations of Op Art when describing
the circle as the perfect form but
believes "its dimensions can be
recognized more concretely by di-
viding it progressively by squares
and finally making it a simple
round of endless rectangular pat-
An artist who relies on modern
techniques, Kazuo Shiraga, spreads
paint around the canvas in long
dance-like movements of his feet
while suspended from the ceiling.
His action picture, "Dragons
Emerging from the Forest" shocks
the viewer with a dynamic
rhythm, vehement reds and blacks.

and the contrasting texture of the
globs of paint on the flat canvas.
Plastic Enamel
Atsuko Tanaka creates "Circles
and Tangled Wires" with plastic
enamel on white canvas. Although
a jumble of circles of ballooning
sizes merge with bright, vigorous
colors and intertwining lines, the
painting is not discordant of
clashing but united in a gay, car-
nival atmosphere.
The abstract art in this collec-
tion is a radical departure from
traditional Oriental style. The us-
ual rigid form of lines, pattern.
and light, whispery tones has
been replaced by paintings of in-
dividual personality, v a r y I n g
shapes, and vibrant colors. Each
work demonstrates the evolving
democratic feeling and vitality of
industrialized Japan.
Dr. Gibson spent two months in
1963 in Japan selecting and pur-
chasing the abstract paintings. He
is copsidering leaving to the Uni-
versity several paintings from the

"For reasons familiar to us all, stu-

possible in the selection of the new
University President. Preliminary pro-
visions have been made by the Re-
gents for student-faculty-alumni com-
mittees to meet separately and make
recommendations to the Regents. There
are a few points that must be made
clear now, early in the process.
"First, before any recommendations
can be made, we must understand the
University with which we are dealing.
The logical way to gain their under-
standing is to study the University.
Many small internal studies are con-
stantly being done, but an external
overall approach is now needed.
"Secondly, separate committees tend
to see themselves as representing their
interests against those of the other+
committees. The way to avoid this Is
to arrange for a joint committee to
submit a joint evaluation to the Re-

The idea's not as crazy as it may seem.
Anytime we take a jet up, there are almost
always leftover seats.
So it occurred to us that we might be able
to fill a few of them, if we gave the young
people a break on the fare, and a chance to
see the country.
The American Youth Plan*
We call the idea the American Youth Plan,
and what it means is this:
American will pay half the jet coach fare
for anybody 12 through 21.
It's that simple.
All you have to do is prove your age (a birth
certificate or any other legal document will do)
and buy a $3 identification card.
We date and stamp the card, and this en-
titles you to a half-fare ticket at any American
Airlines counter.
The only catch is that you might have to
wait before you get aboard; the fare is on a
standby basis.
"Standby" simply means that the pas-
sengers with reservations and the servicemen
get on before you do.
Then the plane's yours.
The American Youth Plan is good year

round except for a few days'
the Easter, Thanksgiving

If you can't think of any places you'd like
to go offhand, you might see a travel agent
for a few suggestions.
We can't add anything else.
Other than it's a marvelous opportunity
to just take off.
