She then turned the meet- ing over to Mrs. Merton Reeves who was in charge of program arrangements. Mrs. Reeves introduced Mr. John Spicer, of Florala, who is Art Director at Jefferson Davis Junior College at Brewton, Ala- bama. His topic was "Flemish Art of the 15th Century." As his major illustration he chose Campen's "Merode Altar- piece", a most beautiful osl painting done on wood in three panels - a triptic. The center and larger panel shows Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the angel announcing to her the news of her blessed mother- hood. One of the side panels shows Joseph in his carpen- ter's shop; the other the donor of the art work. Mr. Spicer showed a film strip with re- cording which explained in a splendid manner the many intricate details of this re- markable painting with its many objects of symbolism. In conclusion, he displayed some of the art work done by his students. He also pre- sented a book, "The History of Art", by H. W. Jansen, to the History Club in deference to their year's depth study of art. During the business session, Mrs. Vester Gamble of the Garden Club, Mrs. Lewis Ei- land of the Study Club, and Mrs. C. A. Ganey of the His- tory Club gave resume's of their club's activities for the past year.
