WE NOMINATE



James Edward Davis, one of the most stimulating
of all Amei'ican men pf art and a pioneer for khe
past quarter-century in the search for new art
media, who this week stunned a New York City
forum with the flat assertion. "The traditional tools
of the visual artist are completely obsolete." Feel-
ing strongly that art has failed to meet the chal-
lenges poised by a dynamic world, this 51-year old
native of West Virginia now insists that the artist
must turn to the motion picture film as a means of
communication if he is to succeed in breaking the
stianglelock of static reality.

Ever since his post-Princeton studies carried him
through the "whole artistic gamut, including
cubism," Davis has been experimenting tirelessly
with materials and techniques. In 1932. for instance,
he came forward with murals in clear plastic, sealed
between sheets of laminated safety glass. A Prince-
ton exhibition in 1936 featured several paintings
done on asbestos board with cellophane coverings
and the following year he started his investigations
of the refractions of light which were to lead di-
rectly to his continuing series of thought-provoking
abstract films.

Headquartered in a top-floor Nassau Street flat,

that serves as studio, photo-workshop and living

quarters. Davis took up film in coping with the

PRINCETON'S M



problem of motion and usee! the camera to record
the reflections and shadows cast by suspended
plastic mobiles. His initial film venture in 1948 was
welcomed by New York's Museum ot Modern Art
and his second was ordered in quantity by the De-
partment of State for distribution abi'oad. Twice in
three years Davis creations have been selected for
showings at international film festivals lor being
representative of the best of American art 'films.

Davis, first head of the Lawrenceville School's*
Department of Art and a former member of the
University Faculty, has also scored iieavily in the
field of documentary films. Two of this country's
modern greats, architect Frank Lloyd Wright and
water-colorist John Marin, both of whom applaud
Davis film-'experiments, refused to cooperate with
"name photographei's" interested in filming their
lives. Instead they both invited Davis, a self-con-
fessed amateur, to do the job and for the first time
"living records" of artistic genius at work have
been preserved for posterity.

For believing that "it is better to fail in the pro-
gressive direction than to succeed in the passive";
for having the courage to be guided by his own
convictions;, for minimizing the significance of his
own contributions to the advancement of art; Vio
is TOWN TOPICS' nominee for

I hat he would some day
President of the U.S. than he did
in the weeks leading up to the
Democratic convention. Adlai Ste-
venson, a memljer of the Class of
1922 now hopeful of following in
the footsteps his fellow alumni.
James Madison and Woodrow Wil-
son, was in every sense a normal,
typical undergraduate in the post-
World War I era.

Our research on his career brings
these varied points to light:

He was a member of The Daily
Prihcetonian, serving asjnanaging
editor in his senior year, and held
membership on the senior council
and Class Day committee. He play-
ed tennis and belonged to Quad-
rangle Club. (At last week's Chi-
cago convention. Michigan's 40
votes eventually came his way
through the governor of that state,
G. Mennen Williams, who was
Princeton '33 and also a member
of Quadrangle. There is reason to
believe, however, that the two do
not see eye to eye. with Governor
Williams considerably the more
liberal of the two.)

Governor Stevenson was known
to close friends as "Rabbit," for a
reason that classmates now living
in Princeton are currently unable
to explain. In his senior class poll,
he received scattered votes for
"most likely to succeed," "biggest
pus politician" and a few more
"thinks he is biggest campus



for

The following note is offered to
Eisenhower backers for what it is
uorth: When Governor Stevenson
uas about to graduate, he listed
himself as a Democrat. In the Class
of 1922 Ten Year Book, published a
decade after he had received his
diploma, he called himself a "Norlh-
trn Democrat." This is the sort of
flying wedge that hard-working
members of the G.O.P. ought to be
able to use to split the solid South
wide open.

Close Call. M. Starr Northrop of
Port Mercer (just across the Dela-
ware & Raritan Canal on Quaker
Road) and several guests were sit-
ting in the living room of his house
Monday night when a loud but not
lasily identified noise brought them
outside. Using a flashlight to pierce
the darkness in the light rain, they
could find nothing and, after a
search of several minutes, were
ready to return indoors.

At that moment, thev heard the
slightly muffled screams of a wo-

El ic P. Mihan. who runs the shop,

Princeton's easel, and a sketch of

the stein is a pewter top you can

It was this top that took Mr. Mi-

'ceramic lip with no gaps. Hard to
find such workmanship unless you
turn to the old European artisans.

You can get half a litre of beer

knowledge of the metric system is
hazy, so we looked it up. Half a
litre would be slightly more than
a pint.

bag, is on sale at the Union Food
Market. 205 Witherspoon.

Comes in blue, red, green, nax-y
and yellow, all in the same bag. We
asked if the colors really stay after
it pops. They do, sort of, but you
won't get a solid red puff.

What you get is the usual white
popcorn, but streaked with the col-
or of the kernel. Doesn't it sound
great for the kids? Think of Hal-
lowe'en with colored popcorn balls.
Enough to make a popcorn addict
squirm with anticipation. You get
ten ounces for 35 cents.

A few paragraphs back we were
writing about beer sleins in a men's
clothing shop. It shouldn't surprise
you, therefore, to learn that the
Union now sells socks. You get four
pair for only 99 cents, and the
amazing thing is that the socks are
guaranteed. Even children's socks,
and you know how fast children
can poke through a heel.

Phipps Estate Sought. The event-
ual fat'' of Islaed Beach (more
rommnnly known to Princeloniatis
as the Phipps Estate) remained in
doubt this summer. The 10-mile
tract of virtually iminhabited
land, stretching into a peninsula
between the Atlantic Ocean and
Bai-negat Bay. has long been a
favarlte ijpot for residetltJi of this
and other Ne^



■Hh



The beach is wide, backed

kedly unpoptilated



Ihe bathing is better than j
spots along the New Jersey shore;
and the area has for years been
known to naturalists as a wildlife
sanctuary, as well as a location
\\here many unusual tj'pes of plants
and flowers grow. Entrance to the
estate (whose owners never lived
there* is by membership pass only.

One of the immediate post-war
plans of the slate was to acquire
Island Beach for use as a public
resort. Various groups were formed
(among them, one by Dr. George
H Shull, well-known Princeton
hoianisi) to combat the proposal,
but a delay was all that could be
effected. Although the property has
not yet changed hands, the 1952
legislature has appropriated $2,700.-
000 to finance purchase of the tract

The executors of the Phipps
Estate arc reported to be asking
$3,000,000, a figure not too widely
divergent from the state's offer.
However, before agreement can be
reached and the sale consumated.
two new developments must be
settled-

A New England real estate com-
pany has tiled a suit to halt nego-
tiations between the state and the
owners of the property, claiming
that the heirs had previously
agreed to sell it a portion of Island
Beach. The sum it claims to have
offered is $1,159,300.

Acquisition of the property, long
ad\ocated by Dr. Charles R. Erd-
man, Jr., Commissioner of Eco-
nomic Development for New Jer-
sey, and backed by Governor Dris-
coll will not — in Ihe letter's opinion
—be delayed by the suit. The gov-
ernor has also said that e\en if the
New England real estate company
should be permitted to buy a por-
tion of the land, condemnation pro-
ceedings on behalf of the public can
be instituted.

The newest chapter unfolding in
the battle for control of the area
is a Washington report that the
Army is considering it as a possible
site for an anti-aircra/l artillery
range. This. Governor DriscoU ad-
mits, is a "complete and stunning
surprise."
