SALEM,

I am anxious to jo in with my fellow marine painters in forming an association in this country that would help set high standards, comparable to the Royal Society of Marine Art in Grnat Britain. Such a Society should be formed not only for the purpose of ·'furthering the understanding of our maritime heritage," but for the equally important purpose of seeing that the heritage is not po lluted by the terrible cheesecake ·'art" that has surfaced as result of the recent interest in the tall ships. JOSEPH R. CORISH Somerville , Massachusetts

I was very pleased to ge t your letter announcing the plan to establish in the U.S. a society of marine artists similar to that in Great Britain. I am sure the response will be enthusiastic! PHILLIPS MEL VILLE Washington , DC

I commend the idea very highly. Not only do I feel it will benefit marine artists directly , but it will certainly be of interest to museums and I welcome it on that basis alone. ROBERT E. LEE Coordinating Director Dossin Great Lakes Museum Detroit, Michigan

I think the concept of an association of marine artists is a good one and long overdue. You are to be congratulated. Some very good artists are working here and, in my opinion, would want to become members. HENRY JEROME GORIN , Jr. San Francisco, California Georgetown ·t 84S
