New Dance Music
of the Season
A more original fox trot never ivas
written, perhaps, than "Bo-L-3o,"
played by Paul Biese and his Novelty
Orchestra. The melodies are weird
and wild beyond description, and
music never was arranged for a jazz
orchestra in more rccklesslv original

of a medley of familiar tunes, but tha
dance rhythm never falters.

counted upon to come throuKh with
socic original or ingenious dance
music "Venetian Moon," a fox trot,
and "Swancc," a one-step, on a nevr
Victor Record, are of such a character.
The former combines all the "Jazz
Spirit" with the floating: melody asso
ciated with the pondola. "Swznee" is
reminiscent of "Old Folks at Home,"
"The Mocktnc-Bird" and other old
eouthern melodies. The' saxaphone,
xylophone and piano are used for both
Another Victor dance record fof
April contains "In Your Arms," a med
ley fox trot, and "That Naughty
Waltz." The former, a beautiful fox
trot full of sentiment, is played by
Sclvin's Novelty Orchestra. Tha
waltz, played by Joseph C. Smith's
Orchestra, contains melodies which ar
smooth, pure and .beautiful.
It has been said that through music
alone can be expressed emotions that
lie too deep for words. Whether this
be true or not. it is z fact that music
will carry a message of cheer, comfort,
hope or inspiration to natures that re
main untouched by any other form of
appeal. The power of music to five
action and direction to hitman motives
is undisputable. It is especially Im
portant that children be kept under tha
influence of the best music. The. great

CAN'T HilEKTAND I
I Our competitors can't understand how we remain in 5 HH
S business and sell groceries at their cost. p3fl
Almost every day some of them predict we will not lS
last more than another week, month, etc. Yet our stores jH
are still going and to all appearances are prosperous. No
one has yet hesitated to buy our groceries through the
fear that it would mean a loss to us.
If we knew no more than to sell at a loss it would be no
I" one's fault but our own. 4
We know our prices are hard on the average grocer. I B'
We know too that he can't understand our modern, eco-
nomical merchandising methods. -
When a grocer tells you again we will soon go out of IH
business, just tell him of our thousands of customers, of I H
our million and a half dollars sales per year, and thaht we J
make just a small profit on each item. Skaggs' stores have HR
been a great benefit to thousands of Ogden citizens during !
all the past three years. They will continue in the future
with prices even cheaper, as more stores are added. 1 11
