Alexander Young Jackson, born in Montreal, is now IJ years old and the sole remain- ing member of tbe original Group of Seven. Tbe seven are seen as tbe first artists to come to grips with Canada, in all its specta- cular roughness and outpouring of coior. These artists, some of whom had been painting together at lent 10 years earlier, came in- to full prominence in' 1920 when they exhibited, as the Group of Seven, at the Art Museum of Toronto. (Tbe identical exhibition is to be re-assembled tims year anc placed on display at tbe muse- mi's offspring, the Art Gallery of Ontario. The works win bang in the same on tbe wans.) Dr. Groves said there were four central figures ia tfae Group: Jackson, Lawren Har ris (who died this J. E H. MacDonaJd and Arthur Us mer. Tom Thomson, a dose asso- ciate, died in an apparent boa accident in 1917. Tbe remaining three were Varley, Frank Carmrenari "There has been considerable of pastoral especially in eastern and eeatral Canada, producing wnat appears to be a surplus of ministers and not all or- dained ministers are finding positions Dr. George Turtle, princiaal of St. Se- ihea's College, Edmonton to'd members of the United Church presbytery, at its unual meet held recently in Medicine Hat There are also a growing number of men asking for re- to the ministry and applications for accep- oce from other churches. Studies of this concern are oder way in various confer- aces regarding how this will affect other churches, since ap- plications are being receives rom points in the United Stabs and Great Briiain." Dr. Tattle advised that while lay ministers are serving very wen, the program win be dis- tinued after tail tununer in favor of the regular theolo- ;ical university course. "All professions are affected in the knowledge Dr. Turtle stated, "and there is a crying need for upgrading in training in all church work per- sonnel. The United Church pUaj to have its mmsters be required every 4 years to take a study in a. mogiiatd course approved by the board of col- lege. This, along with ttrte- week study leave each year." Dr. Tuttle said .that new 'agencies must be cultivated for contitnnBg' education, but the church has nestber me equip- ment, institutions or money to do the job. "We need to dovetail into existing facilities such tfae universities, colleges, and Calgary Pastoral Iistititi which deals with sex aad tut- ly life at weB at the program of the Calgary Foothills Dr. Tattle said. 'Finances will be an iiaue, but congregations, if they want to keep abreast of the times, wffl have be prepared to grant personnel leaw absence as well as financial as- sistance." Dr. Tuttle said mat amafl colleges such as St. Stephen's are1 no longer valid, and that plans are under'way-to com- bine the teaching programs the theological colleges acroos Canada.

TRIES TEACHING He tried teaching in 1926 at he Ontario Cotoge of Art, bat 'it took away, from his spciug and aotumn sketching." He never agate taught, a full school srm. "I suppose teaching supports one, but an artist loses a M of tfae vital juice to students." Canadian painting which has became "international" in .tfae pest few years, received its next great push ta Be. 1940s with UK advent of such ab- stract painters as Jean-Paul RiopeDe, Dr. Groves said. The works of RiopeUe, Alex Cntville of New Brurswick and William Kureteck of Winnipeg "have the same beat, the same sense of exhilaration" as the Group's Dr. said. The Group's institutionaliza- Uon m Canadian art, has prompted demands for "prices incommensurate with tbe nor- mal value of the paintings." It was just a chance of fate hat "their prestige rose with tbe affluence of Canadians Dr. Groves, who has seen her go into a second printing, is herself an artist and noted collector of works by German GAUON EXTBHOt FENCE PAINT 4.95 GALLON 3.79 FREDDIE'S WALL FLOOft COVERING IU Ird An.
