Not desiring to blame it ar on the Old One, dancing reformers In New York have been casting: about to find who started the Jazz mania. They have not grot far with the .nquiry because of a general "passing of the buck," or evasion of responsibility, as tliey say In dear old Boston, Nobody wants to ad I mlt that he, she or It had anything: to do with originating or encouraging the musical horrendousness of th-? squealing, squawoking, crashing, groaning, whtne ' Ing, blaring, shrieking, roaring, ullula tlons of the bedlam called Jazz. Dancing teachers approached by Thb New York Herald gesture toward the composers. The comyiosers blame the public. The public strcngly suspects Old Horny. A considerable part of the pub lic blames the younger generation, say ing that jazz goes naturally with the prevalent crazes of a nervous age de manding noise, restlessness, motion, ac tivity?anything but calm and quiet Some s.iy that jazz Is a further reaction from the utter, stodgy re^poctability of the Victorian age. Others believe that jazz is forced on us by impudent and vulvar purveyors of a-nusement. R. "\V. Vizay, president of the Ameri can Society of Dancing Teachers, said: "Dancing Is wholly a matter of music. The reason a waltz Is out of date is be cause there Is no Strauss to-day to com pose a real one and make the people glide to It. When good music is com posed good dancing will result. As Ions as you have Jazz music you will have Jazz dancing." Mr. Vizay commented that few people dance properly or even gracefully nowa days. This grieving expert continued: "Go into any ballroom and what do you see? You will see forty couples doing about forty different things?no standard for anything, no harmony, no grace: all at sixes and sevens in a hig gledy-piggledy or extravagant motion. Toddling, shimmying, Chlcagoing, what I not?there Is nothing attractive about I present day dancing. Now these people | have been properly taught as a rule, be- j caause the teachers do not cater to this j silly Jazz stuff, but when the pupils get j Into the public baalrooms they btgin reacting to Jazz tunes and think they are disgraced and out.pf date if tht-y do not shimmy and toddle with all the other nincompoops. "But dancing will come around all right Jazz will disappear, and once more we will have something In dancing esldes that queer perpendicular em hasls which Is so ungraceful. Wc will have lateral motion In curves and glides, and that is always soothing and attrac tive. We will have harmonious music. "The day of the silly toddle Is pass ing." COFFEE BROKER FOUND DEAD.
