President John Bulman told the gallery's annual meeting yesterday'that Mr Selby was selected from 17 applications to succeed Dr. Ferdinand Eckhardt. who announced his retirement last October after a 20-year term. Mr Selby. 40. has been with the Wadsworth Atheneum since 1968 following positions as curator of education at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Gallery of Art in Washington. D.C Of the 17 applications, five were from Canada, one from Scotland and 11 from the United States.

The University of Calgary hoff will be found is growing remote. says Peter Winkworth. a curator of McCord Museum in Montreal. He was here yesterday for the opening of a special display of Kreighoff lithographs at the Public Archives, a show which will remain on view for Ottawa's summer tourists until Sept. 2. Mr. Winkworth, honorary curator of prints and drawings for the McCord, McGill University's museum of Canadiana. organized the display of Krieghoffs works two years ago. It has been seen in Montreal. Toronto, Paris. Brussels and London, .before coming here, and so far it has lead to no new dis- coveries. What prompts the suggestion that there may still be some unrecognized Krieghoff paintings is that the display includes prints for which no paintings are known. Krieghoff. born in Amster- dam, raised in Germany, and for a time a soldier in the American army, came to Can- ada in 1837. Before his death in 1872, he became internationally-known for his landscapes and portraits of Quebec habitant life. His paintings now draw premium prices they reach auction markets. His works became so popular that they were engraved for printing in black and white, and hand-colored, sometimes matching the original paintings closely. There are prints in the show based on at least 19 paintings, but original paintings are known or on display to match only about 10 of them. Mr. Winkworth said in an in- terview it now seems unlikely that any of the missing paint- ings will be found, though it al- ways remains a possibility that some have been hidden away and forgotten in a storeroom or attic. Lithographers in England, the U.S. and Germany did not copy Kreighoff's originals slavishly. In some cases, they deliberately altered a picture for a specifk purpose. As an example, Mr. Win- kworth pointed to a 17 by 25- inch painting entitled Passen- gers and Mail, Crossing the River, showing men struggling with a boat through the ice of the St. Lawrence Diamond David Bowie's first recordings, in 1967, reflected his then primary role as a stage performer, and with the accent on increasing theatrics in rock today, he makes a return to the early style of his music. The theatrical influences on 'Diamond Dogs' (a recited introduction, chanted vocals, his 'Antony Newly" are all to be found on his 'Images 1966- 1967' album. In addition, Bowie, as he now simply calls himself, adds to the album several loose rock songs very reminiscent of the sound of the 1966 ere Rolling Stones. Lyrically, it is centered on a future, mutant- decadent civilization. Some of the l.p.'s features, such as Bowie's incredibly variable singing voice, are outstanding, but generally the record, like its immediate predecessor. 'Aladdin Sane', is not up to the calibre of his bnllant 'Hunky Dory' and 'Ziggy Stardust" albums. A noticeable gap on Bowie's album was the lack of his former lead guitarist. Mick Ronson. who has gone solo with the album 'Slaughter On 10th Avenue'. (RCA Records APL1-6353) A better record than Bowie's, this very impressive piece utilizes such contrasting styles as '50s rock and roll, jazz, and electronic effects, forming a unique pop- rock style. The quality of production, keyboards, and Ronson's guitar and vocals, are all highlights. Ronson may soon be surpassing his former employer Bowie on the record charts. (RCA Record PL10576) Rundgren Since his days with the Nazz. in the last few years Todd Rundgren has taken Frank Zaapa's crown as rock's best anarchist-satirist- musical genuis. The 'Todd' l.p. is an example why. The two-record set is divided among several synthisizer solos, satirical hard rock, a few of his trademark pop-soul HOME BUYERS BEWARE cuts, and a few nothing songs lor instance, a Gilbert and Sullivan number. Along with the majority of the instrumentation, Rundgren does all of the often skillfully over-dubbed vocals. The album helps prove that the title ol his last record, 'A Wizard, A True Star' was no exaggeration. (Bearsville 2 Br 6952) Rocking At the Tweed Blues While rock music, especially in the late 1960s was very blues influenced (eg. Cream, Canned Heat, various blues as of late blues has declined as a major influence. 'Livin' Blues, as their name suggests, are moving to alleviate that situation. To a base of .various blues progressions, they add the varying influences of the pop. jazz and hard rock fields. Their vocals and guitar work are the dominant features on their quality album. As long as musicians like these five Europeans play the blues with both respect and creativity, it will always last as a popular musical style. (Philips 6413 044) Savoy Brown Recently these three groups appeared in Lethbridge in conert. which offers a chance to compare their live and recorded works. Headline artists Savoy Brown were somewhat less than enthusiastically received. As always, the group is controlled by guitarist and original member Kim Simmonds. A completely different lineup from the The Toad' album is presented, with the thythm team of Eric Dillon (drums) and Jimmy backing up the three guitars of Simmonds and vetern English blues-rock guitarists Miller Anderson (ex-Kieff Hartley) and Stan Webb (ex-'Chicken Their 'Boogie Brothers' l.p. (London APS 638) is average.

(CP) The producer-director of a feature film based on the Stephen Truscott case says portions of the film scheduled to be shot in Guelph may be done elsewhere because Mr. Truscott and his wife live in the community. Murray Markowitz, the pro- ducer-director, and Dr. Alfred Berman. the film's associate producer said yesterday that they were unaware of Mr. Truscott's presence here when they selected this locale for some shooting. Dr. Berman. reported to be the Truscott's doctor, said he had no knowledge of the fam- ily's true identity until last week the craziest of coinci- dences." said Dr. Berman. Mr. Markowitz. who said he also became aware of Mr. Truscott's identity only recently, said he would move the shooting of some planned courtroom sequences out of Guelph if necessary. Other segments were to have been shot here at the Guelph reformatory, where Mr. Truscott was confined for some time. But Donald Sinclair, provincial deputy minister of correctional services, has said there may be grounds for refusing filming in the reformatory. Mr. Truscott was sentenced at the age of H in June. 1969. to death for the rape-slaying of a 12-year-old girl. That sentence was commuted in I960 to life imprisonment, and he later was paroled to start a new life under an assumed name lead guitarists are never utilized. Musically the most competent band of the concert was Manfred Mann's Earth Band The fine album 'Solar Fire' (Bronze ILPS 9265) provided the bulk of their show s material. Mann on synthisxer, Mick Rodgers doing vocals and guitar, Colin Pattenden (bass) and drummer Chris Slade create a distinctive hard rock sound that is combined with a progressive rock Flavor. Kiss, while th e least musically impressive group at the concert, was by far the most visually entertaining, with a variety of stage devices, such as heavy make- up, smoke bombs and fire- breathing, being employed. On record one might expect them to be unimpressive, but their l.p. 'Kiss' (Casablanca NB 9001) is a fairly good set of straight hard rock material in the Humble Pie tradition. Insane Asylum McDonal Singer Kathi McDonald had help from such talents as ex- Santana guitarist Neil Schon, Sly Stone and the Pointer Sisters on her album. A hard, bluesy rock atmosphere is cultivated songs performed include the Bee Gee's 'To Love Somebody' and Elvis's classic 'Heartbreak Hotel'. Her voice is strong and gravelly, but smoother and lighter "than that of the late Janis Joplin, who seems to be the yardstick for measuring female rock singers. 'Insane Asylum" is a well produced, enjoyable album by a talented new artist. (Capitol ST 11224) Saints and Winter His overnight rise to stardom in 1968 may have been partially through luck, but Johnny Winter has since proved he is one of rock's best guitarists. Unfortunately, his latest album, 'Saints and Sinners' is a disappointment. A variety of rock material is employed, and with average guitar work and the especially poor production quality, "the result is a below average album. (Columbia KC 32715) Shinin Funk Through the years Grand Funk has been harshly criticized, but it's no wonder with records like this. Their bland hard rock (occasionally spiced with a moog) is climaxed by a descration of Little Eva's classic 'Loco- Motion'. Together with an album sleeve devoted to the hard sell of their fan club (at a shot) it's an album that little can be said for it. (Capitol SWAE 11278) Early Airplane 'Early Flight' is an album of songs either unreleased or previously released as singles. Six of the nine songs are from the folky 1965-66 era of the Off and 'Surrealistic Pillow' l.p.s, with the other songs from 1970. The liner notes are excellent, and Jefferson Airplane fans should find it a worthwhile album. (Grunt YL1-0437) Earing A Dutch group, they have been together for 10 years, and are quite well established is Europe as a successful live band. Their live excitement doesn't quite make it to disc, as their extended hard rock songs are only average, although a few nice touches, such as a melodic flute solo, are added. (Track MCA 396) Regiment changes ad text CALGARY The King's Own Calgary Regiment has changed the text of a newspaper advertisement after being warned that it could be sex discrimination. The ad in question contained a statement that "no female vacancies exist in the students summer employment program" with the regiment. Lieut. Glen Lyson of the regiment said. Spokesman for the provincial human rights commission said the regiment contacted his office after a newspaper advertising salesman questioned the text of the ad.
