Our Art Gallery is a national disgrace—we fully concur with the facts presented by Mr.RobertHughes in our lead article inthisissue.

Spoilt child of God A Paradise Lost
It is amazing that no one ever questions the truth of the story of a lost Paradise. How beautiful, after all, was the Garden of Eden, and how ugly, after all, is the present physical universe? Have flowers ceased to bloom since Eve and Adam sinned?
Has God cursed the apple tree and forbidden it to bear fruit because one man sinned, or has He decided that its blossoms should be made of duller or paler colours?

You may have noticed the considerable drop in the number of cartoons published in the "Bulletin", or perhaps you haven't? I suppose very few of you have ever heard of the "Bulletin". In case you haven't, it is a rather ineffectual weakly weekly journal with a policy that changes as often as the weather. Nevertheless the "Bulletin" was the only publitation which paid a "decent" amount for Australian cartoons, (S gns., 10 gns. for a full page). The weekly allowance for cartoons was £140, this has just been cut to £50, (thank you

He says_ "the answer to the question: 'Why did.73ustialig produce so many caricaturists and comic artists?' was the Sydney 'Bulletin', the red covered weekly known throughout Australia as the 'Bushman's Bible'." 'The men behind the Bulletin', notably 'Jules Francoise' Archibald, a master journalist, and Witham Mauleod, an artist with solid business ability, had made it a major policy of they paper to encourage native Australian talent. The supply of poets and writers began to flow almost immediately. That of comic artists and caricaturists had to be primed at first by a couple of importations. Livingstone Hopkins (Hop)
from America and Phil May from Britain. "With thew first class masters setting the example in the 1880's and 90's the local talent was not long in appearing and at the beginning of the century the 'Bulletin' had grown a team of social and political artists it would have been hard to beat anywhere in the world. "No more imported governors nor doggerel oational anthems, no more pompous borrowed generals. foreign titles, foreign capitalists, cheap labour, diseased immigrants. "The Crimson Bonds of the Empire be damned/ Its caricaturists found in this spirit the perfect inspiration for caustic satire." "It was the dearest wish of every black and white artist to get into the SuIle-
tin'. If. Australia, said the 'Bulletin', were to become a nation, she must have her own manufacturing industries. Britain in the character of dumper of cheap goods, that would hinder the growth of these industries, was asunwelcome as any other foreign dumper. 'Australia for the Australiansl'. 'Australia a nationP, Advance Australiar, 'Give 'em air born" The "Bulletin" became the most influential rice in Australian politics, inspiring the Labor Party with ideals and ideas to an extent rare in political journalism. The "Bulletin" is apparently bowing-out as the long-standing home of the Australian cartoonist, are its days numbered altogether? It seems a shame that when people become wealthy they tend to turn ablind eye to any sense of duty.

BACH TO BRUBECK Interviewing a promising young composer, and being fairly ignorant of music's aims and terminology is difficult work.

Philosophy What isyour name? In my world we don'thave names we are names. My name isWhimsy. What an extraordinary name! Tell me of thisworld. Our world is a sweet life, a love life. A world of roses and honey, of songs and kisses. You say `our'—with whom do you share this world? —
With my friends, of course —Laughter andDelight, Carefree, and my love, Smiles—to name only a few.
High eyebrows and sinking eyes which stare forth into an unknown darknessleaving them grey and hollow, black and bloodless, liketarnished metal — dull and faded on anaging yellow. To you I cry "See nomore with heavyeyes!marvel no more at the grey grotesque of a fireless eye!" And with aknifeI cut deep and pluck away onestaring eye —youdo not stir —I taketheother too,and place a pair of dark glasses over the wounds. Now you cry at your reward;nowforever moreyou may stare forth into thegrey andhollow of an unknown. Now, at last, youknowthe use of bloodless eyes.

We have many of each that you offer. They come willingly from your world to ours. To them it is not an escape but a discovery of new meaning, a new life of more fulfilment. You see, our world is our reality. not yours. Reality is whatever you make it. We make our reality harmonise with our world. By SUE WOODS And can you name your gods for I must hear — and my heart is strangely feeling with this revelation, and I am afraid of my fate? Our new god is Raymond Peynet. He came to us in our greatest need, our darkest hour, our moment of hovering before the gates of dismal hell. Tell me more, I no longer can hold my ears to my bead, they fly to your lips, clinging in an embrace from which I cannot escape. Ah, poor foolish man-a small taste of honey is sweet but mouthful upon mouthful burns the tongue and turns your throat to coughing. I have been given the power of first messenger to you —do not let me fail. Regain yourself— determine your mind — criticise my world so that I may prove to you wis-
We have leaders and prophets, wise men and gods. We have Searle, Emett, Os ber t, Lancaster, all graphic artists whose art is simple, joyous, beautiful, sentimental, and with a laugh takes you away from sad eyes and sour lips to sweet looks and smiles. Yet Peynet is your monument. I know little of this god of yours. I fear I feel his work is to smile at and then to turn the page to forget it. Your mind is a child's, but let me turn yet another page for you and read the words of Colette Vasselon: "In these drawings we rediscover the emotions of growing youth, of our earliest love, and our first tryst; and ,we realise how deep is the philosophy of this naive and simple life. Houses are there to shelter men and their happiness, flowers to charm their eyes, animals to love them and serve Even sorrows them . . and disillusionments are here on a scale made to fit man himself; hate, being shut out. 1 am humbled.
