METROPOLITAN MUSEUM IS :
' REAL ART WORLD CENTER
New York Offers Complete Uborator; All Periods
By Kenneth MrCormlck
For the art student New York
presents a remarkable laboratory
of varied galleries In which are
hang plctnres that represent all
the great art periods of centuries.
Art and the Metropolitan Museum
of Arts are .synonymous terms in
minds of many. And they may
well be. But there are many oth.
er noteworthy galleries which ca
ter in their own way to a remark
ably I diversified art loving public?
,; The Metropolitan is on Fifth
avenue between 79th and 22nd
streets. It Is the only public
building which has been permit,
ted-wlthln the boundaries of Cen
tral Park, la Its enormous halls
and rooms are hung a rather com
plete representation of the art
world. No gallery - is complete.
None can be. For example, the Me
tropolitan has no original paint
ing by Leonardo da VincL But.
as a key to the study of art. there
is no gallery In the United States
so well known for Its diversity.
"Graft" Is Charged
. The pictures are purchased by
a board of more or less distin
guished connoisseurs, who right
now are up for a real painting. A
group of art critics has decided
that the Metropolitan Is not be
yond the graft that is bo notice,
able in every other art. Much dis
satisfaction has been expressed by
those who know, or think theydo,
what Is and Isn't are. Much rath
er ordinary stuff has been pur
chased while a number of extra.
ordinary works of the more mod
ern painters have been fairly
sneered at, according to the afore
mentioned amalgamated critics,

. ' Between 20th and 60th streets
are countless private galleries run
on a business basis. 1 Most of these
own or are agents for a few works
of art. But sprinkled in with
these are gold brick editions of

And, what's more, people still in

about It then It must be art. If
.that were the case nothing would
be truer. But most of the public
refuse to beMeve that what it has

advertising schemes of the seller.

and Betty went home to practice
before her mirror an exaggerated
Greek dance with the hope that
she might please the Visiting dan
She was on hand before 10:00
o'clock on Sunday morning, more
anxious than she had ever been.
She was now to work as a dancing
partner for a professional.
I At exactly ten sad-faced young

looked around. She was the only
woman in slfhUjio he came over

They worked forvtwo hours on

"Kid, you are good!" he an
nounced when they left the stage.
"Let yourself go the next time

ancouragement, and the Intoxica

to the spirit of this ridicule of the
beautiful Greek dance. From time
to time she Introduced a few ln-

consistent clog steps and failures
to do acrobatics, which amused
the audience immensely. Hawkins
patted her affecUonately on the
hack when they left the stage for

Wednesday night Hawkins said to
her: "Diteh the - Johns, tonight.

he wanted, but disappointed when
they reached the stage door to
find Harry Ford waiting. She in

glad to see him. and smiled to
herself that she was attracting tc
her -the men she liked. The smile
became a bit grim when she real
ized that it was her public dancing
and ' not herself which attracted
them. .. '
Hawkins took her to a white;
tiled chair-arm lunch room, or
dered 'some simple food, and be
gan to talk business at once.
"How would you 'like to go on

"Why. I had not thought about
