PAINTING AND PRINTING Talks on Lithography To Highlight Art Exhibit A round-table discussion on “New Dimensions in Lithography” will highlight the opening of a new exhibit now showing in the USC Fisher and Quinn Galleries, 823 Exposition Blvd. The discussion will take place at 8:15 tonight Hancock Auditorium. Besides introducing the new exhibit, it will also salute the Tamarind Lithography Workshop. Leading the panel will be William Lieberman of the Museum of Modern Art of New York. Other particpants will be A. Hyatt Mayor, New York Metropolitan Museum; Mrs. June Wayne, director of Tamarind; and Jake Zeitlin, Los Angeles dealer in rare prints. Last night Mayor gave a lecture on t|^ “Effects of the Introduction of Lithography Upon European Art.” “Lithography is as big as art. Wherever art goes, lithography will go. It follows art more closely than any other media,” he said. The lithographic process, often called a combination of painting and printing, is actually a relatively simple operation. According to Los Angeles artist Joe Zierker, lithography is based on three main steps. First the artist draws on his stone or plate with greasy materials to form grease patterns in direct relationship to the pigment. The plates are then washed with a chemical to fix the patterns and desensitize those areas not meant for pigment. After the ink is applied with rollers the print plates are printed, once in black-and-white, many times if in I color. “This has most certainly been the greatest printing I advancement since Guten-burg, and it was all begun by one man. Alois Senefelder,” Zierker said. In recent years, however, the advancement of lithography has been left to Tamarind, backed by the Ford Foundation Program in the Humanties and Arts. Mrs. Wayne, Tamarind director, noted that a handful of creative people is all that is needed for a renaissance in the art. “I see for lithography the same kind of wide acceptance that we saw for chamber music 15 years ago,” she asserted. “Half a dozen master-(Continued on Page 2) I 1961 he assisted in the establishment of the Times educational services program.

STATUARY WRAP Shroud Shields Tommy From Night Marauders IN THE BAG—Fears of vandalism at the hands of USC's football| rivals have driven Tommy Trojan into hiding under a, protective covering until after UCLA game. By ELLIOT ZWIEBACH Tommy Trojan, the spirit of Troy, is shrouded in a veil of mystery. Shortly before the Stanford and UCLA Games every year, Tommy Trojan disappears beneath a white covering to prevent Troy’s foes from defacing him. A group of ambitious invaders from Westwood had a unique plan three years igo. The students tried to bomb Tommy Trojan from a helicopter with blue paint purchased from a UCLA paint store. A Trojan sympathizer who worked at the store warned attack. The invaders failed anyway because the wind blew the paint away from its intended target and all over University Avenue, at great expense to all concerned. A few years earlier, the “brave” Bruins stole onto the USC campus in the dead of night driving a Volkswagen full of blue paint. The Trojan Knights caught the invaders, who left with a new blue Volkswagen and ai* even bluer set of expressions. Tommy’s sword has also been the object of several enemy raids. To save the university the money which w'ould have to USC of the impending^air be spent replacing Tommy's [real sword, a wooden weapon | is placed in his grip to fool would-be robbers. Some of Tommy’s own followers. fraternity members and others, have contributed to his embarrassment as much as his enemies have, according to Arnold Shafer, USC superintendent of operations and maintenance. “It's quite an expensive task to keep Mr. T. decent,” Shafer explained. “We’ve had to spend $75-$150 at times cleaning him, depending on the severity of the soaking,” he added. To insure against permanent damage, Tommy Trojan is covered with a silicone-type paint every two years which protects £he pores of the statue and concrete base. /
