Refuses to Play Jazz,
NEW YORK, April 8.-His
fellow lodgers said yesterday
that jazz was responsible for the
death of Melville M. Wilson,
seventy-tWo years old. a mui
clan, who committed suicide
Wednesday night. Finding that
he had not inflicted a mortal
wound, he laid the pistol down
and inhaled gas through a tube
fastened to a jet in his room.
A note, evidently printed with
the utmost care, lay beside the
chair In which he was found.
"When I am dead notify Harn
leys, Akron. Ohio. Melville M.
Wilson. I want no funeral serv
-ice. The church will please'
keep its hands off."
Wilson for twenty-five or thir
ty yeara has been a cello player
in various restaurants in New
York. He had taken pride in
his work. He lived along and
music was his chief delight. In
the mornings before he went to
his daily task in a cabaret, the
deep wailing tones of his instru
ment were often heard from his
little room on the third floor
Then came jazz. The old man
revolted. He wouldn't insult his
cello, he said, nor the old mel
odies he had played so long and
loved so well. Therefore he lost
the job he had with a cabaret in
upper Broadway. At first this
did not worry him. There would
be other places, he thought,
where jazz was not the rage and
he would find them.
But.it was difficult. He found

to stay a good long while and rest
with my mother and family."
