years a leading member of the
American Society of Composers.

American people are more receptive
to new ideas in music than any
other people in the world. In his
opinion it is the theatre orchestras
that are largely responsible. Spe
cializing in serious music, they
paved the way lor the steady growth
of symphony organizations in this
country. In twenty-five years the
number of symphony orchestras in
the United States has increased
from a scant half dozen, represent
ing the largest cities, to more than
forty located in every section of the
land. * i

for me to do?

see me anytime he likes and he
wants me to drop him. Tell me
what I must do?
Ans: In the first place you
shouldn’t be going steady with
any young man as young as
you are. Go with them both
and don’t let either one come
to see you when they get ready
but make them make dates
and specify a certain night.
Your whole mistake is that
you are allowing your friends
too many privileges.

life. My desire is to be a good
girl, and live a clean life, but I am
ready to yield to any temptation
now. I can’t do anything but make
a mor0 living. Advise me?
Ans: Feeling sorry for your
self will not help your situ
ation, you need to bring about
some action. You should go
back to school and prepare
yourself to a living. Take a
course in beauty culture or

about love affairs and I wish to

Ans: He hasn^t made any ad

Don't waste your thoughts on

He says he will do right about
me if I take him back and I

Ans: Due to the fact that
you aren’t happy as you are

MEMBER NATIONAL WARM
AIR HEATING & AIR CONDI
Many families put off cleaning
operations on their heating appa
ratus until it’s time to start the
furnace again in the fall. It’s much
berjter, and in the long run more
economical, says the National
Warm Air He&tin f and Air Con
ditioning Association, to make one
complete job Ox it, as part, of the
regular spring house cleaning. This
is especially true if you plan, as
more and more people are doing,
to uso the warm air heating (system
for summer cooling, and eventual
ly for year-’round air conditioning.
The principal operation for this,
with a gravity warm air heating
system, is to install a blower fan
in the return air duct, and to open
Itho duet itself to the cellar, shutt
ing off upstairs intakes. If cool
ing coils or a refrigerating unit
are also desired, they can be put
in at the same time; but the curcu
lation through the upstairs rooms
of air coioled in the cellar will
often alleviate discomfort to a
surprising extent. While work of
this kind is being done, it is more
convenient and costs little more,
Ito have the furnace man clean the
entire system thoroughly. One of
the points, often neglected, which
should be inspected and cleaned as
soon a., the fire goefi oult, is the
water pan or humidifier. This is
especially important in a hardwa
ter neighborhood, as calcium de

THE recent tragic death of James Weldon Johnson sepa
rated brothers, who had been composing songs for two
generations. The elder was, besides, an outstanding lecturer
-and leader of his race.
They were born in Jacksonville, Florida, educated in
Atlanta University, Atlanta, Ga. J. Rosamond went to Boston
to study music, James Weldon became principal of the Stan
ton School in Jacksonville.
The summer of 1899, they left for New York City to ,
interest producers in some songs they had written. They were
taken up by many celebrities, including the famous vaudeville ,
performer, Bob Cole.

many songs and frequently made the rounds together.

^Valklog up low*- Broadway, J. Rosamond hummed a
spiritual, and Bob Col6 was quick to see that it had
popular poisibiChes. J
They wrote the song, but the publisher didn’t like it, and '
kept it in a drawer until Marie Cahill sang it to success*
The Johnsons and Cole were the song
writing sensations of the world in the first
decade of the century.
When the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publisher: was
formed in 1914 the brothers were able to protect their copyrighted :ongs^
against infringement by commercial user^ of music.
