Less smile, more wrinkles for Carter

WASHINGTON (AP) - The smile is
still there. Just less broad. The hair is
grayer. And there are pronounced lines

All in all, President Carter's new of-
ficial photograph projects a "more
presidential" image, according to the
head of the White House photo staff.
ITS RELEASE IS part of a White
House effort aimed at improving the
public perception of the chief executive
in the wake of polls showing confusion
about the administration's direction
and disapproval of its performance.
The color photograph, taken during a
seven-minute session by Karl
Schumacher, one of the White House
photographers, replaces an official por-
trait released 11 days after Carter
became President nearly 18 months
ago.
The first official portrait showed the
President displaying the famous,
toothy Carter grin. The new picture is
far from stern, but the grin is less
pronounced. The President has reduced
his display of upper teeth from 10 in the
first picture to seven in the second.

COMPARED with the earlier, more
relaxed portrait, the new portrayal of
the President is "more official
looking," said Billie Shaddix, chief of
the White House photo operation.
"The job has a way of changing the
way a person looks, aging him a bit,"
said Shaddix. "Character lines
change."
The new portrait of the President,
who will be 54 on Oct. 1, will "keep what
the President looks like in the minds of
the people," Shaddix said.
A NEW PORTRAIT of Rosalynn Car-
ter was also prepared by the White
House. Carter's first official portrait
was doctored by an artist, but the new
picture, which has not been touched up,
shows sagging skin, pouches under the
eyes, and at least four neck wrinkles.
Few such blemishes can be seen on the
original picture.
Rosalynn Carter's new portrait is
also undoctored.
The President and his wife had a

hand in picking which picture taken by
Schumacher would be distributed. Car-
ter's press secretary, Jody Powell, also
