US IA Art Show Stars Combat Art Art fanciers will be pleased to learn that the United States In- formation Agency, USIA, is open- ing an art exhibit in their library Monday, Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. The exhibit includes 37 paint- ings from the Historic Division of the Department of Defense They are all World War II paint- ings, from the various theatres of operations. About half of them are from the "Life Magazine" Art Collection. t Painted On Battlefield This magazine commissioned painters to go out to the fields of battle and put their impres- sions on canvas. Seven paintings are from captured German col- lections. The rest are by Ameri- can servicemen who painted when they had a free moment. Some of the painters have since become very well known in the United States. James Brooks, a sergeant during the war, has paintings in most U. S. art galle- ries today. Other painters whose works are represented are Regi- nald Marsh, Henry Varnum Poor (a well-known New England teacher), Floyd Davis, and Paul Sample. Original Paintings The paintings are all originals. They are not brutal, but rather, descriptive: showing the confu- sion of war, the human sorrow, and landscapes. The exhibition is in the USIA Library. It opens Monday, Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. The showing will continue daily from 1 to 9 p.m. except Saturday and Sunday when it closes at 7 p.m. The last day is Saturday, Dec. 4. Holiday Mail Here's another reminder. The Post Office has announced a Dec- ember 10th deadline for getting Air Mail to the states by Christ- mas. Package contents should be firm- ly packed with nothing loose in- side. It is wise to put an additional address slip inside. Customs regulations apply to some items being mailed overseas. Some countries also prohibit vai-i- ous items, and U.S. regulations prohibit other items. Local postal officials give advice on these mat- ters, a spokesman said. (AFPS) WHITE FALCON Deadline Mondays—8 a.m. DOD Will Outline Cash Awards Action is underway to deter- mine procedures for payment of cash award to service personnel whose suggestions, inventions or scientific achievements benefit the government. The services are awaiting De- partment of Defence instructions before putting programs into effect During the interim, how- ever, persons may qualify for the cash award. Recently enacted legislation calls for cash payment from appropriate funds similar to pro- gram provided Civil Service per- sonnel. The Army is preparing a change to the existing combined and unified (civilian and military) program when the DOD "go ahead" is given. Navy officials say the program has been announced to all com- mands and specific information, rules and background, will be explained in a Secretary of the Navy instruction. The Air Force has drafted a manual suggesting methods for administering the program. The manual has been sent to major commands for recommendations. A 30 percent military participa- tion goal has been established by the Air Force for FY66. (AFPS)
