Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - April 15, 1961, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news vol. 83, no. He it it. Pleasant Iowa saturday even Ino april to i of i these Days by Cisoree a Sokolsky the silenced song fest life in any Large City is drab for Young people and particularly so f t new yorkers where there seems to be never an Kwh re to go. That is to go spontaneously without prearrangement. Without the Wear and tear of dressing up. Anti so for 17 years Young p Ople have Beni for gathering in the Fountain of Washington Square on a sunday afternoon to sing Folk songs. I Cid not know who started All this but it grew so that Many came and boy met girl and mandolins and guitars were brought along Thor was a spirit of gaiety and of belonging although occasionally there As anywhere else a bum came among the sheep a heroin Pusher or a homosexual seeking ii mat or something like that. Of course such will be found in any Jingo crowd in new York and on1 place is As Good or As bad As another. For 17 years these song fests continued and nobody much bothered about it. The beatniks came with thir whiskers and their gals wore Long hair and All their laces were Grubby which is their Symbol of revolt a but it is better to rebel by not using lipstick than to rebel by throwing bombs. Youth will rebel end these do it by singing Folk songs and r citing drab poetry the kind that depends not upon the depth but upon a sort of onomatopoeia v he h is hereabouts fashionable although not As competently done its by Edgar Allan Poe. 9 0 0 and so. Of a sunday they Sang uni the police were silent. During most of the 17 years the commissioner of partes in new York City was Robert Moses the great builder. Robert Moses has a sense of humor As Well As wit. No one asked lits consent of these folks to sing hut he said nothing about it. Iii a word. To winked his Eye at the Rule that to do almost anything in a Park one needs a permit. Moses believed that Parks were for people and if the people wanted to sing surely it was better for their souls it # i Arf. Pm my in m a a p 4% i dior h. Irn Kike ii a to ii a.
