the rules adopted by the League for
governing women students. This
group listens to cases of infringe-

a new policy was adopted by this
body with the aim of acting as an

Simplicity, a large 'standing fig-

a second sculpture prize was shown
by Laura Garden Frazer. Nothing
of the strength of conception which
is characteristic of Miss Lane's
work is evident in this piece. Miss
Frazer hasda small degree of pro-
ficiency in creating the effect of
roundness with the result that the
pretty composition of the young.
girl is entirely defeated by the flab-
biness of the texture quality.
The other two women who were
awarded prizes in the show were
Miss Marie Goth for her full sized
oil entitled Florence which undoub-
tedly savours of the academic in
both composition and execution of
technique, and Gertrude Fiske for
her portrait head of an old man
entitled Major. The last oil is of
remarkable power. The artist seems
to paint with her mind as well as
with her brush. The whole work
echoes her sympathetic interpre-
