.W?.-?-? In the Home; t,.,.? _,?.?_?T--__?^? MUSIC The Birthright of the Community By J. MacB. Something is \vron<>- with AYashington. Something is lacking in AYashington toward a realiza tion of this birthright for her children. AVnat does Washington give toward obtaining this heritage? How does she compare with other communities? Oat reason put forth?which is begging the question? i? 'hat, as a city. Washington is neither flesh, nor fowl, nor go? ?I red herring. Hut AVashington, as a city, practically inhibits the growth of mesic in the community. She is negatively de structive uf lur own civic health and happiness. Scarcely a musical enterprise starts in Washington but what the civic obstacles first dishearten and later often slay the endeavor. What is the cause: Something is wrong somewhere.

The performances of | 'Gounod's "Kaust" have proven the worth of the labors and dreams of Cdouard Albion, director of th?H movement in Washington for national opera for America, and fostered by | the War Camp Community Service. | now called the D. C. Community! Service. j Financially, last week's venture into a piofessional week of commu nity opera?a.? a product of the re sources of th? many artists who have given their lime nnd talents to tlvs great ideal?'has fallen below the ex-i I pectati?ns ot its ardent advocates. Then what is wrong? It Is the same old cry of Washing ton? " LACK of an AUDITORIUM for the PEOPLE! This brings up a point that is un der dispute. It has brought criticism upon the D. C Community Service. "Faust" was given at . a 'theater, with theater prices. This took the benefits of this most valuable educa tional movement away from the peo ple whom it would most serve. It also placed the D. C. Community Service In a false position as a server of th* com munity. The Ideal under which music at its best should be brought to the j people?--and particularly when it is produced by "the people"?is at a ! popular" price. In other cities even the best symphonies, have a student rate that brings these concerts to one and all. And "Faust" was only possible because professional singer.? in Washington gave their services to the cause. What?happened is this. Central High School, the one place where an auditorium exists for the community, was refused to the Washington Opera j Company for tho production of ? "Kaust." The reasons were within the righta of 'the school board. iThey find that an opera production necessitates so many accessories that the i?e of the s<-hool is-rrof feasible. Tti?n. too, the School Board refuses Ir>*?rmib3?on for the sale - of tickets, even at a "community price." Both of those reasons ara doubtless within their rights. But?each of these reasons has been waived - by 'the Sebo??! Board, upun occasion. The contention is that it is not a I consistent serving of the community, . by a civic utility. Kvaal? Must Be Rai???. Granting that an opera production (would demoralize the school regime. ! the validity of such a reason car.*not ! be questioned. But the inconsistency ??-??leu particularly in reepeei to prce. The Washington Oratorio Society may noi charge ior its annual rendi tion of The Messiah." Yet funds are needed for its ?ontinuance. and the ! alternative i? given of making m-?n ( dicants of the director.? on every o te 1 caelon. with plena for a ?. oluntei-r of fering. The director may not object, ?seriously, but al way? it seem.? to lo a - I er the dignity of the occasion, of this ' sacred choral service, and also It la not a fair distribution of benefits re ceived ami benefits returned. In oth? r ? words, it makes for an. unmoral dis tribution of responsibility and appre ciation. Now only this week, the MB??it of the New York Symphony Or? hestra. ?given at Central High *-?-hool under ? the auspices of the Washington So j cicty of the Kine Arts, advertises | tickets at $1. admission at 50 cents. | Again, opera is produced at Central iHirh School by the Tech Hish S< hoo!. bringing all the (?bcomfort* Into the ?school that the community opera would. Also, these performances were gt\en with tickets at prices, if I re member rightly, ranging from $1..;0 down. Is the School Board serving the i community consistently? Why not waive for all time this contention about pr'f-e, and let the dignified plan of a small price keep away the niobi of the past and maintain the morale, the obligation, of those who attend? Existing conditions are preferential. In the matter of perfor.nanc??.? in a theater, the theater ha.? a ni.i'imum puce for its winter rate, ihc per formances must conTorm to the pro fesional demands. That prevents the] popular" price that would bring it to all the people. The Washington Opera Company is educational. More broadly edura I onal than an Imported musical eventi iati be. It Is a school of musi??, of| expression, of painting, and of disci pline. As such.and not on a ?ommer- | nai basis, does it exist. !t ha.? a t-n all corps of "teachers.?'

The lover of the beautiful in art ! wants to see this beauty put in;o the I titra and heart of the masses. Is this not a civic Privileg? . if not ? duty? Then remove these stumblin-; r tt? k? !>nd let the good work go on unin.peded. When will Washington bring her %ruat birthright to the KNTIJ'l" COM? ??TONITT. tf^CW ?I J_f ?) Musical *?* <#' -/or?

"In a nutshell;? The first movement shows the West before the whit? man found it?and naturally I had to ring in my eternal love for the Indian; but you will notice that I disclaim the use of genuine Indian themes.

It may be taken as the pioneer's thoughts of the Mastern or Southern home he has ?eft behind in hi? quest for the new. the undiscovered West. The third move ment, a?

DOES PROHIBITION HINDER COMPOSERS? DrKoven Believes Great Artists Frequently Require Some Artificial Stimulants. Some years ago a number of ?rea tive ?*?*?'??? m the varied fields of literature, science, and art were In vited by a great Kow York contem porary, in a symposium, to express their view.? as to the influence of stimulants, not necessarily excessive, or not ex? lusivcly alci holte, though generally s?>. on the exercise of th? creative faculties in vaiiou.? line? of creative work.
