Melodious Program of Harmony j
Department Fills Golden
Gate Hall to Doors
That music not only hath charms to
soothe, but also the power of seductive
attraction was evinced yesterday morn- ,
ing at the session of the department of ;
music education of the National asso
ciation In Golden Gate commandery |
hall, where the delegates packed ever--
Inch of the standing room In the hall '■
and even stood In the halls while the ;
four other department sessions in the
same building had scant attendance. j
Br way of variety the committee had |
interspersed musical numbers through :
tho program so that the meeting was
not merely a presentation of the tech- 1
nical problems of the music teacher in i
the schools, but somcth^ig of an enter- ;
tainment as well. Hence the attend- .
, Supervisor Elsie M. Shawe of the St. J
Pail schools presided and introduced
Thomas Pearson, barytone, accompa- ;
nied by Miss Dorothy MeMahon. Pas- i
more's songs. "I Rise From Dreams of ,
Thee" and "A Bridal March," elicited
applause from the audience of techni
IXFLtEXCE OF Ml Mi
in the president's address Miss Shawe t
spoke upon "The Relation of Public .
School Music to the Music of the Com- |
munity," In which she dwelt upon the j
influence which the music taught In .the •
schools had upon the music of the home j
and the corresponding Influence of the j
music of the home upon the musical j
taste of the community and the nation.
In part she said:
We can assist In bringing more
music and music of a better quality
into the home by having nothing but
the est music sung or played in the
schools, and second, by Including In the
course Of study many beautiful folk
and other songs, simple but good,
which through love and familiarity the
child will naturally carry to his home."
The second musical number on the
program was a violin solo by Samuel
Savannah, accompanied by Fraulein
Hermlone Rlche. In his two selections,
the adagio, fourth concerto of Vieux
temps and "Farfalla," by Sauret. both
sufficiently melodious to please the un
initiated and sufficiently technical to
satisfy the elect. Savannah received
credit at every hand for his delicate
Interpretation and splendid tone.
MISTAKES I^KTEACHING '.'
Miss Julia E. Crane of the Normal
Institute of Music, Potsdam, N. T.,
spoke upon "Some Mistakes In Music
Teaching Which the Viewpoint of the
Child Would Correct," bringing out the
fact that musical instructors in the
schools are for the most part persons
who have advanced to a point where
they find It difficult to adopt the view
point of the beginner and consequently
adopt methods which would be of In
terest to the theorist, but which have
no appeal for the child and are ill
adapted to elementary work. .
Miss Vlctorine Hartley of Berkeley
discussed this question further.
• Superintendent W. M. Davidson of
the Washington. D. C, schools also
talked informally upon the value of
musical education In the schools.

introduced the resolution in the coun

when the committee was announced
yesterday morning he was named as
Its chairman. Speaking on the subject,
he said:' »
"The importance of this Investigation

He said that there was universal
criticism of the results of the present

being the need of more practical sub

Pearse Shows Hand
Since the opening of the convention,
I Pearse of Milwaukee has been the
choice of the insurgent element I and
through all their fight he has acted as
leader except that he has refused to
take an active part in the race for the
presidency. Last night, however, when
a rumor became current that Pearse
was against St. Paul as the next con
vention city he made his first state
ment, denying that he favored either
Chicago or St. Paul and affirming his
confidence in the ability of the direct
ors to settle the question where the
next convention shall be held.
A real concession to the demands of
the Insurgents was made yesterday In
the .announcement- that the national
council had decided to recommend an
appropriation of $1,000 for use in the
Investigation of rural schools. This
appropriation Is larger than any
recommended for several years, and the
action is""regarded as a partial capitu
lation to the demands for a broader
policy on the part of the council.
OLD GUARD WEAKENED
Another incident of the day that
brought satisfaction to the hearts of
the progressives was the spectacular
departure of two old guard members
from the headquarters at the St. Fran
cis hotel. They had been canvassing
the situation with regard to the out
look In the election today and after an
hour or more threw up their hands and
said they would not stay to see the
Inauguration of an insurgent regime.
They left the city in the afternoon.
' All day yesterday was spent by the
progressives in the active pledging of
votes for the election and many "doubt
fuls'' were herded Into the headquar
ters of the Chicago federation of teach
ers and instructed in the fundamentals
of academic Insurgency. At the close
of the day's work It was confidently
stated that Pearse would have over 30
votes in the nominating committee,and
that. the whole program would be car
ried through with colors flying.
The defeat of the proposed amend
ments to the bylaws Is practically cer
tain, for this can be brought about
even If the insurgents swing j only a
third of the voters. The California
members/are almost unanimously In
favor of the reform platform and their
vote alone can . prevent the passage of
the amendments,' * 7 .
V> BOOST STATE
California boosters from various
parts of the state are putting to good
use the opportunities given them by
the educational convention, and are
among the most active visitors In the
city this week.
From Oakdale. Stanislaus county,
has come an energetic committee of
boosters who are working hard to Im
press on the visitors the advantages
of their locality. Illustrated pam
phlets, containing statistics and de
scriptive features of Oakdale are being
distributed by the , delegation to Jhe
teachers from abroad.
The Oakdale boosters attending the
convention are Harry G. Howell, W. J.
Hughes, J. A. Ry.lberg. R. B. David
son, David R. Tulloch and W. H. White.
7 Boxes of peaches raised in Sonoma
county were being distributed among
teachers from a distance at Golden
Gate hall yesterday morning free of
charge by the Gravensteln apple show
association of Sebastopol. . While the
boxes were small, they contained
enough fruit to serve as sample prod
ucts of that county." ~
The booth from which these boxes
were distributed was decorated with
Shasta daisies and other flowers that
have been propagated by Luther Bur
bank, a large picture of whom was
placed In the background. The booth
was at the meeting place of the music
section of the convention.

Local People Flock to Give Sup
port to Health Expert's
Deputy Sheriff Connolly Says
Munyon's Methods Gave
Additional emphatic statements In
favor of Prof. James M. Munyon's new
treatment for rheumatism and other ail
ments were made yesterday by follow
ers here of the noted eastern health ex
pert. Among those who came forward
yesterday to announce allegiance to
: Munyon's "Xew - Health" theories was
Frank Connolly, who Is a deputy sheriff,
stationed at the county* jail. Mr. Con
nolly Is widely known In San Francisco
and lives at 920 Ocean avenue. He said:
"I have suffered from rheumatism for
something like 13 years, and have never
found anything In all that time that has
benefited me so much as this new Mun
yon uric acid treatment. I have taken
the remedy only two weeks, and yet all
of the pains In my,.ankle, from which I
suffered most, have gone, and my skin,
which seemed to have a texture like
sandpaper, feels healthy and right again.
I am still taking the treatment, but I
must say that I already feel myself a
well man. This Munyon treatment cer
tainly acts quickly. I am glad to recom
mend It to all of my friends."
Among others who gave statements In
favor of Munyon at his headquarters In
the Owl drug store, in the Phelan build
ing, was Mrs. XV. Collins, who lives at
227 Turk street. She said:
"I had been suffering with nervous
breakdown pains In the back of
my neck, from rheumatism. I was also
much constipated. I took Munyon's
treatment and now I sleep and eat per
fectly. I have been using Munyon's
medicines for twelve years and would
think of having no other medicines In
the house. Munyon cured my niece of
malaria In one treatment"
Another who called was Mrs. H. Vogt,
who lives at 814 Devfsadero street. She
"I am taking Prof. Munyon's .uric acid
course of treatment for a case of gen
eral nervous debility and rheumatism.
I have only taken the medicine a short
time, but my rheumatism has almost
disappeared and 'I am sleeping and eat
ing better than I have for months. My
system was all run down and I was
feeling miserable until I began taking
Prof. Munyon's remedies. I am glad to
say what I can In favor of his treatment
to any sick person." •„ '
Free advice to all sick and ailing per
sons is given by Munyon's staff of ex
pert physicians at his headquarters In
