Will no one at least consider the IdeeT
la there no money in Omaha to be In
vested, or shall we musicians have to get
up an article to be published n th music

look over ths ground In Omaha with a
view to putting up a studio building?
Omaha business men end Investors seem
to forget that with the growth of the city
there ha been also a tremendous growth
In the musical development and education.
Think of th dosens of teachers and the
hundreds of music pupils who are studying
In Omaha today, and then realise that
they were not here years ago, when the
corners which are now graeed by The Bee
building, the court house end the olty hall
were the foundations of steep clay em
bankments, and when three blocks from
the present high eeheol the notorious
"Hangman's Hollow" frightened tha be

Omaha to wake up. Wa are glad of that.
Wo had thought so for nmi time, end

alarum In dear old Omaha' drowsy ears.
In these days of prospective grain mar
kets let us be .ure to go "with the grain."
That Is for a greater Omaha. And let us
not forget that a greater Omaha means a

Ye., beloved, J had almost forgotten what
I started out to pay.
The studio question has bobbed up again.
How? you ask. Well, ft few years ago I
alluded, In thl. column, to the fact that
Mr. Oscar Oarelssen had tramped all over
this town trying to secure e suitable place
to teach. The latest 1. Mr. Ben Stanley.
He has hunted day end night for a atudlo
and has seriously thought of renting one of
those Waldorf Astoria Cafe-wagon, which
one occasionally sees and smell, upon th.
street corners. Mr. Stanley I. not even
trying to find a "suitable" place to teeoh;
all he want now Is a "place,"
I. not thl. a .hocking state of affaire, m
a olty of the else of Omaha?
It "goes against the Grain."
I firmly believe that If on had the time
or opportunity to get a docen musician
together who rent studio In various
blocks, end let one come posted with In
formation aa to how many musicians rent
(and pay for) room. In' that block, there
would be en astonishing showing. And

during practice, hours, and how many
pupils they era obliged to decline through
want ef a publto organ to praotlce upon,
there would he ft surprising fund of In
formation. If' then, a statement of the
actual foots were made, and sent to on
of th papers of th trade, It seems that
purely pome results would accrue,
