Ho«l ArtMs In Philadelphia Assert

Philadelphia Otto H Kahn lias

is chief patron of the arts in this
country, by solemnly pronouncing
"An unhappy love affair it es
sential to the deepening of feeling
necessary to the success of the ar
Students at the Academy of the
Fine Arts, victims of only the hap
py variety as yet scornfully de
nounced the truth of the assertion
Even graduates who have had time
to be sensitized by the pang: ot
unrequited love expressed dissent,
from the dictum.
One lone student agreed with Mr.
Kalin, fcihe was Miss Florence Can
1 don't think any one will ever
have much to give until he has
suffered,"' she said. "It is overcom
ing of that suffering that brings
the development of success.''
Mr. Morris Panconst in charge
of the. gallery at the academy, de
clared: "Mr. Kahn is wrong Nearly
everybody has hnd unhappy love
affairs,” but nearly everybody Is not
artistically creative. It all depends
upon how you use your intelligence
to govern those aroused emotions
Jack Moran, another student,
announced: "It 'being unhappily
in love) hasn't helped me a bit. '
Miss Nancy James, another stu
dent, grew specific. She said Mr.
Kalin was a layman, so far as art
“An they daymen) think we arc

rotics,’’ she said. "And it isn't the
neurotic who Is the artist, but the

The next dissenter from Mr.

"Entirely too much stress Is laid
on the Importance ol unhappiness to

the happy state of mind can you
find the overflow of the soul nec
essary to create. To love fully mid
happily is to be stimulated to erca*
tioft with great force. The hard
boiled artist, of whom Mr. Kahn
speaks, is. creating nothing. Unre
quited love leads to morbidness.”
Mr. Larry riummenthal declared
pointblnuk he did not believe Mr.
Kahn could have made such a
statement. It was unnecessary to
impose this qnaltficjatkn because
everybody felt the pangs' of unre
quited love, he said.
"The tragedies begin their

Promising To Chan I'p Southern
Patronage l.asirr Than
Washington, D. O.—While it. is
timm'sally conceded that President
Hoover's promise to put the Hep-ib*
i'.eari party on a new basis of re*
spro ability in the south is a po
ll; lull development of first Import
ance, It set ms to be the considered
Judgment of the more practically
inmded: public men that making
good on the promise is going to be
Hie difficult part of tile program,
l-’or that reason, their disposition is
lo withhold prediction., concerning
the ultimate success of the new
president's altnus'ic plans for his
party within the confines of Dixie.
li i., accepted that the great ob
jective is to build up a party in the
Southern states that will genuinely
compete with the old Democratic
party for all public offices, local,
state and national.
The purpose, it is accepted, is not
merely that of ending criticism oi
the Republican national leadership
in the matter of distribution of feci -
eral patronage in southern states
If1 thr- limited objection were all in
the mind ol the president, it. is ad
liu11. c! Ilia! his ; 'atrmcnt. jilus a
program of filling federal offices in
tin sotith with u desirable type of
appointees, might accomplish it.
What politicians foresee as the
.liflicuH part of the Hoover pro
gram—t hat of building the respee
live Republican organizations in
Southern states info aggressive
competitors with the Democrat', all
along the line—is that of local
leadership and direction. The read
er can visualize for himself the
situation in his own Southern com
munity, where, • In most cases at
the present time, the Republican
cause is in the hands of men who
do not nppeal to tlie better cle
ment of citizenship and could not
recruit much following from that
element, which usually is strongly
It is contended that even if Mr.
Hoover accomplishes the retire
ment of undesirable local leaders
and substitutes a better class of
men, the latter would face the
hard task of w inning recruits among
Democrats, who, in local matter?
and usually in state elections, vote
the ticket of the traditional South
ern party, even though they are ac
quiring the habit of breaking away
in national elections
Surface signs point to a poltcy of
Democratic ridicule, tn public
speeches and comment, on the Hoo
\rr program for the South Sena
tors and representatives from south
ern state:- who have discussed the
White House statement all seek to
minimize it. Most of them hark
back to the last national campaign
when Republican money found its
way into the hands of colored lead
ers in the South for the corralling
of negro delegates to the national
convention pledged to Mr. Hoover
They contrast what happened then
with what Mr. Hoover Is now an
nouncing as a clcan-up policy In
These critics take issue with the
president in his statement that his
administration and party are not
sectional. They point to the fact
that two cabinet places went to
citizens of a single Pennsylvania
city—Pittsburgh—while none was
allotted to the fourteen southern
states, with a population of about
It is the impression of some well
posted observers 1hat the new Hoo
\er policy was largely the result ot
nd'lce given the president by Col
Horace A Mann, of Tennessee;
manager for Hoover in the south In
»he presidential campaign Mann
advised the substitution of men m
federal offices in the south who
would not be objectionable to the
people with whom they came in
contact National Chairman Work
did not lavor a scheme of reor
ganisation which would be resented
by the colored voters. He tears that
ditching colored office holders in
the south will find unfavorably in
fluence on the colored vote in such
states as Ohio, where it is a large
factor in elec*Ions.

His Glass Eye Gets
Him Out Of Toll Tax
The Mecklenburg board of coun
ty commissioners yesterday thought
that J. VV Brown, of Huntersville,
was trying to pay an April Fool
joke on it.
‘T want to get exempted from
poll taxes," Mr. Brown stated
when he had gained the floor.
"On what grounds, Mr. Brown."
Chairman R. Neal Hood asked.
The board members looked up at
Mr. Brown. Mr Brown smiled
amiably and his eyes—both of them
, — seemed to twinkle.
, "I have only one eye, Mr. Brown
"Ah," said the board in unison,
in the manner of those who arc
the victims of .a joke
I "Yes. but its true," Mr. Brown
insisted. "Sec here."
He made a pass or two before hts
: face with a handkerchief, and he
laid an object on the table
It was a glass eye.
He got the exemption.
