Mr. Harding Visit
New Orleans was the first city of
size in the United States o be
visited by Senator Harding since he
became president elect. Mr. Hard
ing was a rather modest, self-effacing
candidate. He seemed very
well contented to allow his oppon
ents to say or do anything they'liked
during the campaign. As a result
it is doubtful whether the country
kas done Harding the justice in
spite of its overwhelming vote for
Hording the candidate.
Senator Harding came to New
Orleans to meet a somewhat neut
ral audience one friendly in a
general way to any president elect,
one composed more of political op
ponents than of political supporters.
He stood the difficult test of mak
ing four or five speeches in as many
hours. He met and addressed dif
ferent types of people. He left
everywhere a pleasant impression.
He began in smiling. He ended
in smiling. He made friends all
through the process and all along
the way. The things that he said
and the things that he did were
kindly, tactful, and human.

Music Makes Farm Life More Attract
vThe fact that so many young men
aid womon are leaving the country
for the city is causing much anxiety.
The remedy is said to be, "Make
country life more attractive."
Through music, as through no other
medium, is it. possible to bring con
tentment and happiness. It should
be made possible for the children
in rural schools (and, perhaps, for
.adults in rural communities also) to
receive class instruction on oiches
trai nd band instruments.

Pennsylvania where this plan is be
ing followed," iiid the State Super
visor of Music for l'enosylvania. "A
competent man is employed to teach
instrumental music. He gives both
flass and individual instruction.
The- school has three orchestras of
which Jhr first and most proficient
is the smallest. It comprises eight
members. The second consists o
fourteen plovers. On special oc
casion these pupils are coached to
unite with the first orchestra. Tbe

is elementary in character. It num.
