The Guidite World
By Miss Ethel Jones
Effect of Music on Wild Animals
According to varying experi
ments by the societies of the world,
there are instances where music
has had a notable effect upon the
actions of wild animals. While
some of the inferences made are
not justified it is interesting to
note the following gleanings.
Band music when played before
animals who have never heard it,
will cause them to become frighten
ed for a short period. Once they be
come used to the noise they pay
no attention to it whatsoever. Ca
nine animals will general howl
when music is played.
Observations from experiments
made at the London Zoo proved
that some of the animals liked
music, others were not interested
while others seemed intensely to
The seals showed a positive plea
sure when a small orchestra con
sisting of several instruments paus
ed and began to play before their j
' cool quarters. They stopped splash
ing in the water, came close and
swayed dreamily to the tunes. They
were very friendly and seemed to
forget there were any enemies of
which to be wary.
The large crocodile was another
who manifested that, though he
seemed dull and asleep, he had an
ear for music.
The huge rhinoceros, however,
was most impolite. At first he made
noises that expressed his contempt
of the orchestra. Next he, lowered
his large head and charged right
at the musicians.
The wolf family shrieked and
yelled, while the snakes paid no at
tention to the music at all. The
monkey liked the loud tunes that
were nearer noise than music. He
chattered and screamed with de
light. Other creatures of the forest
seemed to be pleased with sweet
music, played in a gentle dreamy
manner. So in the long run it ap
pears that wiki creatures like hu
man beings, like or dislike music.
A Guidite Poem
(1 promised Uncle Gil a poem,
so here it is:)
For my club, I will be. a booster.
For my club, I will be true,
I will be for my club as a rooster.
Willing, working and ready to do.
I will always be ready to honor
my father and mother each day
I will love them and chef r them
Arid for my Guidite club I’ll pray.
I will go to bed each night
With a cheerful Guidite smile:
I will try to see good things in
And I’ll try to reconcile.
I will advertise my club each day
Iwill serve for it as a club
I will fight for it and for it I’ll say
