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
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.
Then what is wrong?

Then what is wrong?
It Is the same old cry of Washing
ton? "
LACK of an AUDITORIUM for the
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

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

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,

DrKoven Believes Great Artists
Frequently Require Some
Artificial Stimulants.
Some years ago a number of ?rea

literature, science, and art were In
vited by a great Kow York contem

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

of the creati? e faculty was largely
