SHOCK TROOPS IN REVIEW; Museum of Modern Art Opens a Pageant Of the Cubists and Abstractionists

By Edward Alden JEWELL

YOU an approach the gargantuan abstract show at the Museum of Modern Art (March 3-April 19) in one of many ways -- or, if you prefer and be qualified, in all of the possible ways simultaneously. Of course, if you have a closed mind, nothing will come of the visit and you might better stay at home, snug and slippered, with your comforting airtight convictions.
