entertained for a day. by the stiulpntB
themselves,' and were shown' ,cvery
phase of student life. The article
outlining tho plan tried at Kansas is
as follows r
"Today Ib pfoba'bly ono of tho days
that will be chronicled in the annals
of K. S. A C. as the most memorable
In her history for tho last decade.
"Never In tho history of this school,
or of any other, as near as we can
learn, has, tho legislative body of the
atato been tho guests of the students
themselves. Tho whole schome of en
tertainment haa been planned and will
booxecuted by tho student body.
"Possibly somo of our visitors havo
seen the collego on some special oc
casion, others may have seen It at
work, but tho Idea which prompted
tho Invitation was .that tho members
of the legislature should seo this
great, educational plant of Kansas
busy a.t its daily duties. Wo clqlm tq
bo .ope of the state's .greatest lnstltu
tlons, and wo hopo and trust that tho
lawmakers of Kansas w.IH leave tho
college vith such an impression. Wo
have tho faith In our school to believe
its work and its sorvlco to the state
will leave nothing but tho impression
that wo can justify tho claim.
"It is indeed an honoi4 and a pleast
uro to have the mon, whom the people
,of the state havo chosen to mako their
laws, for our guests. To adjourn and,
come to our school, these moh' or af
fairs have done' us no small honor.
We expect to entertain them nB stu
dent hosts, In our way, showing them
the Institution and its work. Tho stu
dents, are proud of K. S. A. C. and the
state that supports her, and wo an
ticipate that tho Kansans who visit
ub today will loavo sharing tho samo
feeling. Wo hope they will also find
the students tho democratic and un
pretentious bod of young people they
claim to be."
The following article Is printed nt
the request of Mrs. Raymond
"It mny ndd lntoroBt to the render
ing of Dvorak's symphony in convoca
tion Thursday If tho listener under
stands to what extent it is an Amer
ican work and why It is entitled
"From the Now World."
The Bohemian, Anton Dvorak, had
achieved his most successful composi
tions through the use of the folk song
of his own people and when he came
to America in 1892 to take chargo of
tho National Conservatory in Now
York it wns but natural that he should
bellovo that American music, to have
national flavor, should be based upon
American folk song. Tho only people
who produce folk song In this country
are the Indians and tho negroes. The
old plantation melodies of the south
ern negroes ho found extremely orig
innl and interesting and this sym
phony "Ifrom the Now World" Is his
attempt to use their peculiar rythms
and harmonies in classical form.
Those who are familiar with tho
old slavo melodies as sung by the
Jubilee Singers, such as "Swing Low.
Sweet Chariot." "Nobody Knows the.
Trubble I See," and so on, will recog
nlzo tho similarity of the themes of
the slow movements of the symphony.
Tho traditional gayoty or tho negro is
woll expressed In tho rythm of tho
last movement, embodying a familiar
type of plantation dance.
While many musicians do not agree
with Dvorak that the typically Amer
ican music will be founded on such
themes, It cannot bo denied that ho
has revealed in this symphony a won
derful sourco of beautiful and original
melody, and Amoricans owo hlhi
muph for embodying them In such a
satisfactory form. Tho symphony Is,
of courgo, written for full orchestra,
and naturally loses In ctolor and va
riety when It Ib played, howovor well,
by a fow Instruments. Nevertheless,
It is a delightful work as glve"n by
this quartet and organ.
