The exhibition, which ivill continue through Oct. 15, is ihe first comprehensive show- ing of Clarke's works repre- senting over stx decades of his creative career. Comprised of selected examples of the art- ist's works in the Museum's permanent collections, the ex- hibition includes weed carv- ings, sculptured relief panels, Golfu A Hit In Japan an import from the West, is an overwhelming sta- tus symbol in Japan just at this time. American golfers go- ing to Japan's exposition this summer might try to get then- travel agents to work in a round for them on a Japanese for the experience. It might be difficult. Courses are crowded and expensive. Thousands of Japanese never get on them but spend hours on huge public driving ranges designed to permit dozens of hackers to shoot simultaneous- ly. If you could manage a round at a regulation club, your caddy would be a woman. She would probably be middle-aged and would know the game in- side and out. A sharp rap off a tee and she would enthusias- tically cheer you on with her quaint version of "good shot." Try The 3! Short-Scenic All-Paved Route To The Coast plaster casts, oil and water- color paintings. The public is invited to attend a special pre- view of the exhibition on Aug. 30, from 12 to 8 p.m. John Clarke was born in Ilighwood, Montana, in 18111. Al the age of two Clarke was made permanently mute as a result of scarlet fever. His edu- cation began in 1894 at the North Dakota School for the Deaf. He later attended the Montana School for the Deaf and Blind and the St. John School for the Deaf in Mil- waukee, Wisconsin. In 1913 Clarke returned to Montana and established a stu- dio in East C-lacier Park, where he launched his career in the fine arts. His wocdcarv- ings depicting bears, mountain goats, and other wildlife of the Glacier National Park area, drew immediate attention of c o 11 e c tors and connoisseurs. His work was widely exhibited throughout the west, as well as at leading galleries and mu- seums in the east. Overcoming tremendous handicaps in his youth, Clarke developed into one of Mon- tana's most notable artists, in- ternationally renowned for his carvings and paintings depict- ing the animals native to the Montreal Expo: Never Say Die Montreal has the Expo that won't expire. It is back again for the fourth year with a new name, Man and His World 1970. Many of the national pavil- ions have opened their doors again and there are new ones also. Hungary, for example, a first-tinier, has brought art treasures from Budapest Mu- seum. The United States is rep- resented after an absence of two years, featuring a 360- degree movie surrounding the viewers. It was "70" for the Expo in more-than one way. The ac- cumulated attendance figure hit 70 million shortly after opening June 12. FAMILY MEMBER Peacock flies are a member of the fruit-fly family.

Sport is undeniably "king" in Australia, and the visitor does not have to be there very long to find out why. The climate could scarcely favor outdoor recreation more. The six State capitals, where per cent of Australians live, between them average 6.9 hours of sunshine daily throughout the year and are never cold enough for snow. The standard of living is high and it doesn't take young peo- ple long to save enough money to buy a surfboard, skis, a set of golf clubs, or even a small yacht. Australia's natural and man- made facilities for outdoor rec- MAKE THE MOST OF THE LONG WEEKEND with the Greyhound "Comfort Package" The last long weekend of the summer.

All the capital cities and many of the larger towns are on or close to the sea so there is mass participation in swim- ming, surfing, sailing, water skiing, skin diving, fishing and boating of all kinds. Moreover, vast areas have been set aside as parkland and public recreation reserves. For instance, nearly a quarter of central Melbourne, is parkland and Sydney has acres of public reserves within its greater metropolitan area and within a few miles of most cities are mid life sanctuaries where one may picnic in typi- cal Australian bushland sur- rounding often with a kan- garoo or emu for company! Sydney may well have the most extensive outdoor recrea- tion facilities of any city in the world. Within city limits there are 30 surfing beaches, four major sea inlets, 65 golf courses, 200 lawn bowling clubs, five race courses, scores of cricket, football and athletic arenas, hundreds of public swimming pools and thousands of tennis courts. Participation in at least one summer1 and one winter spor is compulsory in every Aus tralian school. Prowess in sport has consid- erable social consequence. In some countries a family gains social prestige with a doctor in its midst. In others, a profes- sor or' a business-man is pre- ferred. In Australia, one of the surest ways for a family to ac quire a "Who's Who" rating is to have a champion sportsman in the fold. When a sport seizes the im agination of Australians it is only a matter of time before i reaches boom proportions, at- tracting large numbers of par- ticipants as well as spectators This happened in tennis ant swimming, to name two. More recently, golf has become a boom sport and the way this took place is typical. Only 15 years ago, golf hac little popular appeal, being generally regarded as a game for the walthy. Today, newspa- per boys are golfers. So are bus drivers, bankers and rubbish collectors. Australian d o c k- workers have their own golf as- sociations and each year or- ganize matches with dock- workers in other States.
