6 A THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE : DECEMBER 31. 1916. . 1" 4 THREE MAIN POINTS ! IN THE MCE NOTE Administration Surprised Com -' munications to Belligerents Not Understood. MUSIC MEANING IS POINTED OUT Washington, Dec. JO. The Amer ican government, it became known authoritatively today, believes there are three principal points in its note to the belligerents and is surprised that they have not bee.i more clearly understood, particularly by the press of the entente allies. These points, taken in their order of importance from the administration viewpoint, are: The fear that thf position of neu tral nations be rendered altogether intolerable if the war continues. The suggestion that arrangements be made as a guarantee against sim ilar cconnicts in the future. The nroposal that means be found for comparing the concrete terms of both sides. The last point has aroused most comment, and the first was empha sized by Secretary Lansing's state ment, afterward modified, that the United States itself might be draw ing near entrance into the war. The administration, however, it was learned today, thought the sug gestion for arrangement to preserve peace in the future would attract more attention among the entente allies than it apparently has, and fur nish means through which these na tions could enter with perfect pro priety into a serious peace discussion. If such an arrangement could be made the administration feels there would be no ground for the fear that agreements over terms made between the belligerents would not be kept after the war ends. It was pointed out today that such a fear has been one of the main objections of the en tente allies to entering into peace discussions. By HENRIETTA M.

Bee Want Ads Produce Results. into the intricate counterpoint of the one that is to come, it is a good time to consider what each has done per sonally in the way of music, and what lie hopes to achieve. Have the teach ers gained the results with pupils whiich they hoped to gain, and do they find themselves better prepared by every year's experience, and in cited to a greater enthusiasm in their work, by the assurance that what they have taught has been genuine, musical, based upon accurate knowl edge and of value to the students. Have they kept on in their own work, constantly observing, constant ly learning, not content to pass on to others what they have already known, but becoming better musi cians, as well as better teachers in their special branch, always eager to continue onward and know more and yet more of the art which must be to them if they succeed not only a means of livelihood, a business or profession, hut a constant source of inspiration, a continual urge and al lurement. Have those that sing and play more nearly approached the ideals toward which they have been striving, and j . is mere satistaction in tne progress i during the past year or only regrets? Have the ideals been high and worthy of success, or not sufficiently formed and desired to encourage sacrifice and labor? Just what are your musical ideals, anyway? Do those that study, study to dazzle themselves and friends by a wonderful quality of voice, trained to successfully hold tones longer than anybody else, or for pyro tcchnicat display of trills and runs and stunning fortissimos or, by i marvelous digital dexterity which can manipulate any taxing technical pas sage which was ever written? Often this is so, but this is not the musical ideal, rather an athletic one. Perhaps one studies because he wishes to be highly educated, because be finds in musical work great mental stimulus. This is not the musical ideal either, for this produces music that is well played, correct, and uninteresting. Writers, lecturers and successful musicians have for years harped upon the threefold quality of music. Mr, Kelly in his lecture on "Music and Psychology," recently de livered before the Woman's club, clearly brought out this idea and showed the importance of the third great musical element, which he called the "soul" element. The real musical ideal is physical ability and mental grasp, governed and con trolled by this all-pervading and nec essary soul clement. Many people hold a true musical ideal before them and their teaching, performing "or listening is governed accordingly and with proportionate results. But are musical ideals of value only as tbey have reference to music? Is a musical education for purely aestheic pleasure alone? What one learns from a study of music the lack of them. But without the training of all three parts in musi cal expression, the composition ore- sented suffers and the interpreter is not able to give ot the best that it in him. Without the training of all tjiree parts in one's life, the person ality suffers, and in this also the per son is not able to give of his best. The great laws of music are analo gous to the great laws of nature, and in looking over the lives of the great est musicians of all time we find that those who most nearly attained to the musical ideal were also great men. The musical ideal may be used ad vantageously in the details of life as well. It forms a good standard of taste. For instance, how many times we see a woman with a purely emo tional hat, which has neither physical endurance nor mental accuracy, or clothing of poor material and care lessly made, but of the most vivid col ors or daring style. Upon the other hanl, we sec almost as often clothes of good material well made along ap proved lines, but without one bit of style to them.

A re ception to members was held at the Lincoln hotel the evening ot Decern ber 27 and a program and business meeting with forenoon and afternoon sessions during the next flay, wn lard Kimball made an address upon the "Musician in Relation to Educa tion." Sidney Silber read a paper on "Opportunities of the Music Teacher of Today" and numerous other papers were read and discussed. The need of a state law to define the qualifica tions of teachers was urged, hollow ing the address and discussion the proposed constitution for the associa tion was discussed section by section. Willard Kimball, the temporary pres ident, was chosen for the ensuing year. Very' few of the Omaha music teachers were present. Musical Notes.
