Download PDF for this date

A new conception of Abraham Lincoln, “Lincoln the Prophet,” in the form of an etching by Enrico Glicenstein, famous Polish-Jewish sculptor and etcher, which caused a furor in Chicago when it was exhibited there, will be presented to President Hoover on behalf of the Polish government by the Polish ambassador, Titus Filipowicz, the latter announced here yesterday after a call at the White House where he introduced the sculptor to the President.

President Hoover told Mr. Filipowicz that he would endeavor to accept the latter’s invitation to attend a special exhibition of Glicenstein’s work at the Chicago Art Institute during his coming Western trip.
