Three oil paintings have been presented
to the Education Department for display at
the Armidale Teachers' College by Mr Howard
Hinton, one of the trustees of the National
Art Gallery. The first, entitled "The Lock
Gates," is by Adrian Stokes, R.A., a distin-
guished landscapist well represented in the
galleries of Europe and America. The other
works are "The Call of the Drum," by Miss
Mary Tindall Atkinson, hung "on the line"
in last year's London Royal Academy, and
"The Cornish Coast," by John Mogford, a  
well-known exhibitor in the 1860's at the
Royal Academy.
