At Rackham Galleries; WORK
OF CHET LA MORE.
By STUART ROSS
TJHIS IS A collection of oil paint-
ings, caseins, water colors, and
wood and steel sculpture, all the
result of a sabbatical leave spent
in New Mexico by Prof. Chet La
More of the School of Architecture
and Design.
I don't know whether or not all
of the works presented were done
on location, nor have I ever so
much as set foot in New Mexico,
yet I felt that all the mood of this
region, with its occult superstitions
and infinite desolation were pres-
ent here. I think the artist under-
stood what he saw and understands
what he paints about what he saw.
La More'snpainted desert is not
Disney's by any means. Instead he
somehow, and I think rightly so,
equates these desolate landscapes
with a kind of lunar topography.
There is an extraterrestrial airless-
ness in the paintings, a feeling that
if you could enter this world you
would weigh one sixth what you do
now.
And while the Babel effect of the
first nighters did not prevent me
from feeling an eerie quiet about
the paintings, it did keep me from
holding the feeling long enough to
decide whether this was a result
of the intensely low-key color, or a
special kind of attenuated abstract
shape, or neither.

THE CASEINS and water colors
were not so effective for me as
the oils, perhaps because there
did not seem to be the same incis-
iveness of shapes and lines in the
former. This incisiveness is the
quality that carries most of the
paintings. *Without it there is a
vagueness of space, a surfacing of
the color."With it there is a clear
expression of infinity, a carefully
arranged other-world of abstract
shapes.
The sculpture is more like fun.
There are - natural wood forms
slightly revised, stained and pol-
ished and called wonderful names
like "Fox Fetish With Built - in
Brain Box." In these there is a
true feeling of extension into the
mind of the primitive artist and at
the same time a personal witty in-
ventiveness and a careful selec-
tion of subtle form. There are
works in. welded steel, most of
them composed, of all things, of
cement nails, that have an excit-
ing spiky quality, and a few in
steel to which brightly colored
enamels have been added.
A peep-show of Kodachromes tak-
en in New Mexico, and a case-full
of native artifacts are presented as
part of the exhibit, and while I
liked this bit of reality, I liked
more the reality of Chet La More's
Southwest.

British Look,
Natural Lines
Emphasized
By ROZ SHLIMOVITZ
It's the British tweed look for
'54.
While in women's wear it's
exemplified by tweed skirts, suits,
jumpers and casual dresses, the
British natural trend has com-
pletely monopolized the collegiate
clothing market for men.
All the new three-button jack-
ets emphasize the high lapel and
the natural shoulder with little
or no padding. One merchant
even proudly displayed a four-
button jacket, which he terms the
newest item in men's wear this
fall. He has only one such jacket
in stock.
American manufacturers have
included the change. or ticket
pocket, a customary British de-
tail, above the regular pocket, and
have added a back vent which ex-
tends higher than on the two-but-
ton jacket.,
Black-Brown Tweeds
Charcoal greys, leaders in the _
color field for a number of years,
have to take a backseat this Fall
to black-brown when it comes to
tweed sport jackets.
Banker's charcoal continues to
be the predominant color in
trousers and one male "fashion
plate" contended, "It's the only
color." However a good percentage
of students still favor the Khaki
sun tans.
Three-piece suits, (vest includ-
ed), cut in the natural lines, are
flourishing once again.
Both men and women have
taken a liking to the Shetland
sweaters fashioned with the round,
crewnecks.
Jumpers Become Date Attire
Coeds have always favored co-
ordinates, and they were quick to
make the jumper, a basic item in
their fall wardrobe. The sleeve-
less style which found its way
out of the classroom last spring
when American and Frence de-
signers revamped it, can be pur-
chased in any number of styles in-
dicating fall fashion trends-the
narrow sheath skirt, the long fit-
ted middy waistline or the full
crinolined skirt.
Perfect for date wear, the jump-
er can be dressed up with long
ropes of beads, making a comeback
following their popularity in the
flapper days. Covered with a
topper, the jumper takes the place
of a suit.

PRINTS AND TWEEDS-For even
a print cut to a V in both the I
currently popular brown tweed

three-button jacket is shown by the sports jacket Steve Hauser
wears.
