Sept. 3D Trouble is hrewlni? over the puhlic school dances which have been conducted In Jersey Pity for more than three years as the rult of the efforts of the board of edu cation to substitute canned music for the orchestral. The Introduction of the record machine threatens to disrupt the cood work which has been accom plished bv the school extension com-1 mtttee, which has In three years sue-, ceeded. with the aid of thei city authori ties. In driving out of the city all but live of the forty-eipht public dance halls which existed The city commissioner a few weeks ago appropriated money sufficient to maintain dances and Neighborhood Cnter clubs In five schools during the school fiscal year beginning July 1. About the time the appropriation was made Superintendent of Schools Henr Snyder announced that the board of ed ucation, "which has, through Dr. Snyder and a paid supervisor of school dances asserted Its authority over the dances and the expenditures of school money intended to install talking machines to take the place or, the orchestra, which has furnished the music for the dances since they were started. Dancers Enter Protest When this was announced to the dancers at the three schools then run ning weekl. they protested so vigor ously that the members of the school extension committee attempted to get the board of education to reconsider the matter. Dr. Snyder insisted upon the talking machine manufacturers being afforded an opportunity to try their machines at the dances The commit tee begged that the experiment be not tried in any of the established dances, as the dancers threatened to cease their attendance if It is ere done The committee, unable to dnert the members of the board of education from tfceir determination to install the talking machines, reluctantly assented to the talking machine being tried at the open ing of school No. t in Brighton street as one of the two new dance halls. The outcome of the test Is being awaited by the members of the com mittee with fear. It was as a result of the evils aris ing from the saloons with dance halls attached that in May. 1911. the Hoi ?ame societies of Jersey City joined Tcitf' representatU es from the Young "Women's Christian Association, mem bers of the "IVoman's Club, and others in a crusade to prevent the. licensing of such places. The result of the move ment uas the org.uiizatlon of the echo - extension committee, which obtained permission from the board of education to use the assembly rooms of thre school buildings for dancing The com mittee, consisting of lawyers, doctors, society matrons, and social workers, guaranteed to supervise each dance if permitted to use each of the three Echoolhouses one night each week and to furnish amusements which would be eo conducted that any parent mlsht feel safe in permitting his son or daugn ter to attend I The committee ilfvl bv subscription sufficient to run the dances each we-k for five month" and then the board of poucation 'n response to a senral de mand that the ixi-nianenc of the move ment he assured provided the mranF for continuing th riancps A condition "f the payment of the bills from the cltv funds was that the work would n as strictly supervised by the oluntcer tom- mittee as at it inception Committeemen Must Work. N'o persnn can tv a member nf the comnv'tet unless he will gle up one right rarh nk to the work, either to attend a dance and see tha th" rujes are enforced or asist in the Neighbor hood Center work which has been start ed 'n each school Adm'sslon to the school danc is free Any person w ho will behave and obe the -ule of the mmmittee may attend The pnne'pal rule is that th-re mui be ro prom cuous introductions among the dancers Persons desiring to enjoy the dance must do so with their own rrqualntances. and st-angers ire not permitted to solicit dances The tango and all the modern d-ince" of similar character have lxfn bairfd n per ron who is caught Molating a nil"- l promptij ejected from the i onl bu.ld lng b members of the onmm Uee In the three vears sinre the school dances started the Jersey Cm plan ha? became famous throughout the I'n.ted Ftates and the danres have bc-i ivn ed r) ocial workers from Ch cat, Cleveland Iner. and other ities n t West Montcldfr Plalnfleld Pa.s aic and othe- -itte of New Jrr r nd Brookhn and dances nin hIoi Bmewhat similar 'ines have been fjr eri in most cr the e iios named Tango Is Taboo.
