element was the one which brought
labout real action.

bers and plans were made for the

Prof. L. C. Karpinski of the mathe-
matics department.
"It was a natural transition, from
profession to hobby," explained Pro-
fessor Karpinski, "since the earlya
mathematicians were cartographers
as well as compilers of text books.";
Professor Karpinski came in con-
tact with approximately 400 antiquar-
ian dealers in early text books and
maps in connection with building up
the collection of mathematical works,
the most complete in its period in

The hobby, modestly enough begun,
was given impetus in 1926 when the
William L. Clements Library author-
ized Professor Karpinski to secure
photographs of manuscript maps in
the French archives relating to the
American revolution.
The cooperation of the Library of
Congress as well as the participation
of several other libraries made it pos-
sible to extend the project to include
the reproduction of manuscript maps
in Spanishand Portuguese archives.
Among the 4,000 separate maps col-
lected by Professor Karpinski, is a

Variety has been the 'rule in the
subjects that have been selected by
n Modern American Artists whose works
are now on display at Alumni Me-
morial Hall. The exhibit was arranged
1 by the College Art Association and
will be shown here until March 24.
Still life studies comprise a large
part of the exhibition. "Old Hat"
painted by A. S. Baylinson is a very
interesting composition. "Roses in An
- Alabaster Vase" is done in neutral
shades and is the work of Florence
Ballin Cramer. Bertram Hartman's
"Masculine Still Life" is a study
chiefly composed of string instru-
ments. These are placed on a table
in the foreground, and in the back-
grouhd a man is standing.
There are two hunting scenes on
exhibit that are quite interesting. One
is a self-portrait of Henry Varnum
Poor, and the other is by Arnold
Blanch and shows a hunter resting
on a log with his dog lying at his feet.
The largest canvas on exhibit is a
full-fighting scee by Stefan Hirsch
entitled "Matador."
Portraits are also popular in this
exhibit, and they vary from the real-
istic to the modernistis. "La Toilette"
by Harry Gottlieb is a study of a nude
figure. Peppino Mangravite's "Girl at
Table" is done in various shades of
rose. "Guy, The Last Lowe of Lowe's
Point" is a very realistic study of an
old min by Marguerite Zorach. "Pele"
by Raphael Soyer and "Boy" by Henry
Mattson are also on display.
Georgina Klitgaard's p a i n t i n g
Mary Moore
Mary Moore, the brilliant and
spectacular coloratura soprano, has
been engaged as a May Festival solo-
ist, supplementary to the list of dis-
tinguished artists, previously an-
pounced. Miss Moore will make her
Festival debut at. the Thursday eve-
ning concert, occupying several spots
in the second half of the program.
Miss Moore, who is twenty-one
years old, was to have made her
operatic debut at the Metropolitan on
February 7, but due to a serious at-
tack of ,tonsilitis, it was postponed
until a later date.
According to a recent announce-
ment, Miss Moore will be heard for
the first time in the Metropolitan
Opera concert, Sunday, March 17.
Other artists on the program will in-
clude Kirsten Flagstad, Karin Bran-
zell, Elizabeth Rethberg, Fredericks
Jagel, Paul Althouse, and Pietro Ci-
Mara. The full Metropolitan Opera
orchestra and chorus, under Wilfred
Pelletier, will participate.
At that time she will sing excerptsI
from Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammer-
moor" and Verdi's "Rigoletto" with1
other artists of the company.t
Miss Moore will sing the first-act1
duet from "Lucia" with Nino Martini,
the sextet with Philine Falco, Mr.
Martini, Armando Borgioli, Ezio Pin-{
za and Alfio Tedesco. From "Rigolet-1
to" she will sing the third-act duet
with Mr. Borgioli and the quartet
with Mme. Branzell, Mr. Tedesco and
Mr. Borgioli.
The publicity comnittee of the
League will meet at 4:30 p.m. in -

"First Snow" is a picturesque study of
a village with the snow-covered moun-
tains in the background. "Yankee
Town Saw Mill," painted by Katherine
Schmidt, is a realistic composition of
an old mill in front of which is a
pile of sawdust.
"Farewell to Union Square" by Mor-
ris Kanter is a most unusual painting.
In the very center of the picture
there are three roses, and although
the rest of the picture is of the Square,
it is hard to draw your attention from
the roses in the center. Reginald
Marsh, in his painting "Alma Mater,"
has depicted a square in which several
jobless men are sitting lazily about
a statue. It is one of the most out-
standing works on exhibit.
