opularity in aemiclasslcal and classical numbers was made by Wll iam Brown veteran Negro singer who entertained in Mason City as a nember of the Northwest Assem 3lies Jubilee singers Monday in both the high school and Monroe As proof of his statement that the public prefers the less bizarre tpye of music Mr Brown told of the Jubilee group which although of fering only classical semiclassical or spirituals has always been well received no matter where the en tertainment was given All of the singers are university graduates Jazz Comes From Spirituals Jazz originally came from Negro spirituals and the minstrel show said Mr Brown perhaps somewhat reluctantly but there is no uplift ingquality to that type of music The Negro singer emphatically de clared that the hideho type of entertainment popularized by the Negro Cab Galloway was held in low esteem by members of the colored race The Jubilee singers only approach toward more popular tunes are such semiclassical num bers as Trees and Ah Sweet Mystery of Life Mr Brown was a close friend of the famous Negro poet Paul Law rence Dunbar and to this day pre fers his friends poetry above al others In the nineteenth century Brown became intimately acquaint ed with Mr Dunbar in Chicago Dunbar a small timid looking man praised his singingfriends talent while the singer praised the poetry written by his friend Praises Educational System Mr Brown stressed deeply the gratitude of the Negro race for the public education system Educated In the public schools of Chicago and the University of Chicago he stat ed that the chief reason for
