"This is the GAP"-Paul Suttman
4 of the architecture and design col-
lege explained, leaning against a
GAP is Ann Arbor's newest art
gallery: it resides in two rooms,
above a downtown bar, in what
used to be the apartment of,
Georgeanne Pearce, '60A&D. GAP
is the home of paintings, sculp-
ture, weaving and ceramics by
University students, faculty mem-
bers and just plain artists.
Its name, which represents Miss
Pearce's initials, has other con-
notations - notably, the group's
belief that they will fill a gap now
present in local exhibiting.
GAP Origins
Speaking of GAP's origin, Sutt-
man said, "Like she (Miss Pearce)

had all this- room and space up
here and asked me what I thought
of the idea last summer when she
took a class from me And I said
sure, go ahead, and as far as I
know that is when it started really,
and here we are."-
GAP's collection does not repre-
sent any one school of thought in
painting, but tends toward experi-
mentation, diversity and original-
ity. Nor is the work confined to
any locale: according to Miss
Pearce, GAP is a "concerted effort
to make better painting shown in
Ann Arbor."
"It's not all the same painting
or formula painting or the same
artists reproducing the same work
in the same ways," Suttman de-
clared. "Absolutely," John Ste-
phenson, of A&D agreed.

"We just have ideas; the other
people have reputations," Miss
Pearce said, supporting Suttman's
desire "to have a place to show
new work and new ideas because
other people who show old work
are afraid of us."
"Ann Arbor needs it. These gut-
less wonders around here -they
speak only for themselves, but me,
I speak for me!". a bystander
named Andy howled.
Other exhibitors are Evelyn
Gwinner, '60A&D, and Sarah Gor-
don, '60A&D, both painters; Mar-
tin Garfinkelland Suttman, both
of architecture and design college
and both sculptors, and three pot-
ters from Cranbrook Academy:
Jack Fryatt, Wilma Baker and
Susan Groves.
GAP's collection is for sale. It
includes a glass painting done in
bits of glass fused together, an
experiment in weaving by Thomas
Stearns of Cranbrook Academy,
who has used fur in weaving a
large rug, and a highly unusual
creation which Stephenson in-
sisted "absolutely is a pot."
"The artists shown might be
considered as belonging to the
'out' group rather than the 'in'
group shown in this area : the
individual direction of each artist
will be shown rather than his place
in a. given academy," Miss Pearce

Eisenhower Chooses
Wood for Position
Department yesterday announced
creation of a new economic post
in the United States Embassy in
India amid increasing speculation
that this country and its allies
may be called upon to increase
their help to India in the next
The assignment of coordinator
for all United States economic ac-
tivities in the huge South Asian
country went to C, Tyler Wood, a
senior foreign aid official most
recently in the International Co-
operation Administration here.
He will hold the rank of min-
ister in charge of economic affairs
under Ambassador Ellsworth
Bunker at New Delhi and will be
director of economic aid and tech-
nical assistance programs.
State Department officials said
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
had signed his commission as min-
ister yesterday in Augusta, Ga.,
almost simultaneously with Wood's
arrival at New Delhi.
Wood faces a tremendous task
complicated by increasing concern
of the Indian government over
Red China's military pressures on
the border territories of India."
This conflict has dramatized the
long-term contest between demo-
cratic India and Communist China
for leadership in Asia.
Within the past decade the
United States has spent or com-
mitted in all forms of assistance
to India approximately two billion
The great bulk of this aid has
been in loans, but some has been
outright gifts. United States help
to India now comprises this na-
tion's biggest single foreign aid
In recent years, the assistance
from the United States, like that
from other Western countries and
from the World Bank, has been
geared to India's five-year plan.
The present five-year plan end-
ing in 1960 covers a program of
14 billion dollars.

national advisory committee to
bolster newly disturbed relations
with the nations of Latin America.
Cuba and Panama have been the
recent trouble spots. '
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
didn't single out these or any1
other countries in approving the
establishment of the committee, to
be made up largely of private
citizens serving under the chair-
manship of Secretary of State
Christian A. Herter.
But. the language of the official
announcement was broad enough'
to encompass inflammatory, anti-
American sentiment in Cuba and
recent uprising in Panama directed
at United States citizens, property
and the stars and stripes.
An official anr.ouncement about
the new committee said:
"Its purpose is to consider cur-
rent and long-range problems in
our relations with Latin America,
and to make recommendations to
the Secretary -of State in connec-
tion therewith."
Such a committee was proposed
in a report to the chief executive
last January from his brother,
Milton S. Eisenhower, who has
undertaken a number of good will
missions to Latin America. He will
be one of the committee members.
Vice-chairman of the inter-
American group will be Roy Ru-
bottom, Assistant Secretary of
State for Inter-American Affairs.
At his vacation headquarters at
the Augusta National Golf Club,
the President acted on this matter
of concern closer to home in the
midst of preparations for a good
will mission of his own to 11 na-
tions of Europe, Asia and Africa.
Tomorrow morning he forcuses
on military spending as the larg-
est single item in the budget for
the, 1961 fiscal year which starts
-next July 1.
The over-all budget again is ex-
pected to be 80 billion dollars or
more, with national defense ac-
counting for roughly half.
