The art of painting is on the decline--possibly, we ought to say passe. When the product of long hours is not beautiful and succeeds only in being grotesquely funny, youthful critics roll non-chantly in their cradles and the older ones take an easy turn in the grave. The painters and the paintings of 1932 are not worthy of notice.

"Strawherry" blondes use a brunette's paint pot to achieve something between a Texas sunset and "the steel mills by night" effect on the jowls and cheek hones. Eskimo brunettes are just about as successful with the raspberry, rabbit's-ear pink, peach and natural-blonde. And when the women with a will and a head of hair like the Alabama crimson tide white-wash the freckles and lay on a coat of orange-peel dust they are ready for the brickyards union.

Since we have had ever-sharp poneils of red barn paint, our co-eds need only rompers and a sense of humor (nearly impossible for a co-ed) to clown. The Clara Bow month on our buxom cornfed lassies is just another Cumberland gap in disguise, and the termination of Grate Garbo lip in a dimple is the ending of an opera in "Pop Goes the Weasel." But most mouths are nothing more than Halloween scares--impossibilities after the age of 12 years.
