JUTATBE the Broadway 'White lights" will have a different ?teeming In days to come?or father nights to come. Maybe the day?or night?is not ?o far away when the theaters and night palaces that now are at , the mercy of unrelenting rules of the Musicians' Union, will be able to snap their fingers and thumb their noses, so to speak, at the anion's demands. Maybe ragtime and Jazz, hymn and.opera, will soon be done by color instead of by wind and cat gut. Experiments are declared to be la a fair way to success, which will prove that light may be synchro Blzed with music, and already some ** famous hotels are considering plans to use "light players" instead of orchestra music for dancing. It. all comes from sixteen years ?f experimentation with the possi bilities of expressing emotions by light and color. Mrs. Mary Hallock Greenewalt, pioneer in color mechanics, has perfected a "color organ," which gives a color equivalent for every thrill of music. The experiments have been con ducted to a point where It is even declared possible that colored light may eventually become the univer sal "alphabet" and take the place of Esperanto and other possible methods of univarsal communica tion. Mrs. Greenewalt's player device la operated by i>edal*, and has keys - something after the fashion of a | piano or organ. The operator manipulates th(- pedals to intensify ?r decrease the light, the shades ?r colors of wlilch are determined by the keyboard. By this device the "myriad* of emotions" are ? depicted in delicate shadings, which we may, in time, not only dance by. but learn to read and understand as a method of communication.
