With Jazz coming in over tie ra dio from noon until midnight and the phonograph standing ready for action in the corner the modem child can scarcely escape the im pression that music is a noise made by a machine He fixes a disc or turns a dial md a flood of music envelops him n a pleasant sound bath or forms he accompaniment to the stereo typed gyrations of dancing Torture of Music Lesons No longer is the average child made to undergo the torture of old ashioned music lessons In this ay when he is permitted to assert imaelf he rebels effectively against pending endless hours blundering at i difficult InstrupaentVfor which at of music which he never will learn so welt that anyone in duping himself ever will enjoy lis ening tu it Gone these several years past are hose gatherings about

encourage our child to sing or to play any simple instrument he fancies even if it is a drum or the despised ukelelc No matter how humble the music he makes it is better for him to enjoy an active part in its produc tiorithan to doze thru appreciation lessons of the best classical music or to struggle hatefully with an in strument which he never will mas ter MRS BREAKFAST INVITATIONS Mrs Lester
