the above method, but the final effect
is to reproduce the higher surfaces
in ink, leaving white the deeper
parts which would normally contain
the shadows.
Famous paintings, said Mr. Plumer,
were often preserved for posterity
by transfering them free hand to
stone monuments and making the
standard type rubbings from these.
Included in the exhibition are six
ink-rubbings of short, stocky Chinese
horses. These horses were the fa-
vorites of the Emperor T'ang T'ai
Tsung, founder of the T'ang dynasty.
It was on these horses the emperor
would ride when he went in triumph
into his newly-captured cities. While
he was still living the emperor or-
dered large life-sized monuments of
these horses set up on the site that
was to become his grave. Under
each stone slab was inscribed the
name of the charger and a poem
composed by the emperor himself.
Also of interest in the collection
are the caricatures of the Sixteen
Lohan or disciples of Buddha. The
features of the holy men are purpose-
ly made ugly to contrast their re-
pulsive homeliness with the extreme
f purity of their hearts. The cari-
catures must have an early dating,
Mr. Plumer declared, for Chinese
Buddhism has since the time of
Ming if not indeed since the time
of Sung recognized eighteen Lohan.
Of prime importance, said Mr.
Plumer, are the four rubbings of lin-
tels, the slabs of stone, which hung
over the doorways of the Great Wild
Goose Pagoda at Sian, one of the
few surviving pieces of T'ang archi-
tecture. The delicately incised Budd-
hist scenes pictures on the lintels are
the most convincing proofs we have,
Mr. Plumer remarked, of the direct
Chinese influence on Tempyo art in
Japan.
Some of the finest decorative art,
according to Mr. Plumer ever pro-
duced in China are the T'ang stelae
now set up in the Forest of Monu-
ments at Sian. Ink rubbings of some
of these columns, produced in the
golden age of China, the period of
the T'ang dynasty, are now being
shown in the exhibit.
From the standpoint of age, Mr.
Plumer said, the ink-rubbings made
from the tombs of the Han period
(206 B.C.-220 A.D.), are the most
important. In these rubbings are
shown purely Chinese legends, his-
tory and the daily life of the people
of that time.
The collection, Mr. Plumer's private
one, was formed during his years in
the customs service of China. It will
be shown till June 20th.

All seniors are urged to keep in
touch with their alumni secretaries
after graduating. The best way to
keep the class together is by writing
about one's activities to one's class
secretary. The secretary will be able
to send out interesting letters if he
has news from a large number of the
members. Further, the planning is
much easier if the class is well knit
together.
Robert Taylor, '36E, has been ap-
