feelings too GEORGE By RUSSELL LANDSTROM WASHINGTON CROSSING Pa AP That widely held impression of George Washing ton as a cold fish is at last giv ing way to a more human and appealing image a historian said on his birthday Ann Hawkes Hutlon author of several books and a play about Washington and chairman of the Washington Crossing Park Commission said that more and more Americans are finding unexpected warmth in the per sonality of the father of his country For a long time she said in an interview Washington has been overshadowed in the popular imagination by the heart and humor of Abraham Lincoln the dash of Andrew Jackson the sophistication of noted leader Thomas Jefferson The usual thing Mrs Hut ton continued was to call Washington a great man and let it go at that Great but touching no sympathetic chord Now however Americans finally are discarding those timeworn ideas of Washington as forbiddingly aloof coldly re mote a legendary figure rather than one of life and blood who suffered acutely who knew what it meant to be hard up and in debt who was as sensitive as most men to criticism who was fond of children and grieved that he had none of his own and had his share of faults Every year we welcome thousands of visitors to this shrine she said They come from all the states and dozens of other countries They have been telling us the last few years how much more they appreciate the character of Washington and that they feel he has been mis understood This is true even among grade school children Many of these ask keen questions far removed from that
