Ohio State University. But as she is now
once more in the French country, we may
look for a fresh array of water colors in the
fall.
If Miss Schille has doubtless found it a little
disappointing to receive her first serious recog-
nition not from her own countrymen but from
the French, at least her position is not unlike

ARROLL ART GALLERIES

Quite a number of removals have

been effected of late by different New York

an original and vigorous
painter is easily distin¬

During the past year
Miss Schille has applied
herself chiefly to portrait¬

several very sympatheti¬
