"In these enlightened timen," he says, "it seems unlikely that aay widespread objec tion could be offered to such ase of bands and orchestras.

Oct. 30.?The fall docket ?f London's divorce courts, which ?pened a few days ago. contained al most 2.000 case? The lars-est pre vious docket was MO cas??, but ac cording- to an attorney who will ap pear for 100 of the petitioners. Lon don is more moral today than It was "In the good old days." "One hears many remarks such as Ofn, with so much divorce about peo ple must be less moral." says Mr. Figur, the new champion divorce ! lawyer. "My experience goes to show that, far from that being the case, the people are far more moral than they were in the good old days." In thone good old day?, Figur say*, the humdrum existence of the mis mated was accepted, while today the spirit of the time? dictate? an ef fort at saving the rest of the life from unhappineaa and misery through divorce. "One of the chief contributory fac tors in the present rush for divorce la the facility with which people rush into hasty alliances without giv ing thought to the fact that after all there is a serious?and a very seri ous ?side to It all." Half of the present docket Is com posed of so-called "poor person oases." which are dealt with by a department under A. H. Hassard Short. He has been receiving twenty application? a day.

HUGO RIESXNFELD, piftnetr orchestral conduct?? *n putting the best music into the "mov ies." He is both conduc tor and director **f the famous Rialto ^?^ ?^roli Theaters in New York. Mr. Riesenfeld conducts the opening performance of his own musical farce, "Betty, Be Good!" at the Schubert-Garrick Theater in this city Sunday even ing. WILL DIRECT OWN . Hugo Riesenfeld. famous to all who have heard him conduct the orches tras of the Rialto and the Rivoli the aters in New York, will direct the opening performance of his own mu sical comedy, "Betty, Be Good!" at the Schubert-Garrlek Theater on Sun day evening;. Mr. Riesenfeld is composer of the music, tunes he calls them, of this mad merry farce. His music Is the toe-tapping, tantalising kind that sets lips whistling and feet dancing. Hugo Riesenfeld holds a unique po sition in the hearts of the New York public. He was the first man who realised that motion picture audiences would and did appreciate good music, and it was during his directorship at tbe Rialto that the Rialto orches tra became an established part of New York's musical world. When made managing director, as well as musical, of both the Rialto and Rivoli. Mr. Riesenfeld made music as important a part of the week's pro gram as was the feature picture, un til today as many people go to hear the music as see the pictures. Recently when the ''Miracle Man" was presented at the Rivoli for two weeks, Mr. Riesenfeld spent two weeks synchronising the music and bs himself wrote the music for the finale of the picture, because as he explains It: "I could not find anything, although I searched for two whole days, that I felt in here, 'and Mr. Riesenfeld touched his heart,' "would exactly suit the death of the "Miracle Man.' so I wrote the finale. It la not as beautiful as perhaps something some one else had written, but to me It seemed to fit." The music for this presentation re ceived as much, if not more, praises as ths picture Itself, and standing room only was the slogan at ' the Rivoli for the two weeks. Mr. Riesenfeld has written a great number of overtures, and various other compositions, hut "Betty. Be Good" Is his first real musical com edy. He has written a score of vi brating melody, something of a re lief after the present day syncopa tion, but there is Just enough "Jazz" In two of the numbers to show his versatility.

The old still was operating in the thicket by the creek two generations before he was born. So when Harvey decided to come to the city he Just naturally brought a "honing" fo rthe burning- liquor with him. He bought himself a rubber hose, a copper kettle and an old oak tub and set them up back of the furnace of the apartment where he was Janitor. Yesterday J. 3. Hennessey, deputy United States marshal, who used to be a West Virginia revenue officer, got a whiff of the familiar old "cooking whisky." His nose led him straight to Harvey's still. "I don't know what my pappy would say. seeing me trudlin along to Jail without doin' nothing." commented Davis. PLAN TO SAVE 230,000 LIV'S. IN U. S. NEXT YEAR NEW ORLEANS. La.. Oct.

Parents, Philanthropists Civic Authorities and National Leaders! Note Music's Broadening Sphere i i Afasie hai even found its way into tlt? factory A FEW years ago the Art of Music was con sidered the accomplishment of the Few? Today it has invaded industry and is smoothing the operations of the factory, for it relieves the tediousness of labor. It has gone on the battlefields steadying the nerves of oursoldiers. It has entered the hospitals dem onstrating its power in curing the sick and wounded. It has claimed the attention of state and civicanthorities, for it has shown itself a boon to mankind. ? Today, the Joy, the Comfort, the Comradeship of music is known to be the heritage of all the people. Music is the birthright of every child as is education. For a parent to neglect to develop a love of music in the growing child, while his mind and taste are in the forming, is to shut off a chamber of his soul and cut off from his life resources within himself which nature had intended he should have as a solace and a companion in time of trouble and dis tress and a constant means of wholesome pleasure. Surround your child with music. Adapt his educa tion to the changes in the world he will meet. L/3liuir it one qf the moti forcible imi rumeni t for trahi?
