Administration Surprised Com -'
munications to Belligerents
Not Understood.
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,
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

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. The application of
musical ideals in any might have
Eighty-one names were enrolled
Thursday for the meeting of the Ne

tiem, which was organized in Lincoln
last week, as the outcome of tempo
rary plans made last year, according
to the Lincoln Mate Journal. A re

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

31, 1916.
The increase in our resources for the year 1916 was $1,469,332.00, being the second
largest annual increase in our history.
Our dividend rate for the year 1916 was 5' , bringing our total dividend distribu
tion since the organization of the Association to $3,839,334.16. A slight reduction
was made in the dividend rate July 1st last on account of our inability to keep all
funds loaned all of the time.
Our farm loan department has aided materially in keeping all money at work, besides giving us the very finest
kind of security.
Ths time to begin saving money is now. It is our sffort to encourage people of small means in saving monev
rather than to invite large sums.
Loans arc promptly made on improved, or to improve, c ity real estate, or on improved farms in eastern Nebraska.
