Annual Observance Oi' Music Week •Planned By Group Beginning Sunday Observance of the 19th annual Music Week will be held during the week of May 3-10, according to a statement issued by C. M. Tremaine, secretary ol the National and Inter-American Music Week Committee from his ofi'icc in New York City. Mrs. William E. Hoiulrlx, local chairman, makes the following announcement: "Last year Music Week broadened into an Inter-American observance, and. it will broaden again to meet present conditions and large needs. We are inviting our Allies and the peoples ol the United Slates to join with us, to the extent they feel inclined, and we shall look to the growth of that participation another year. "Music Week has bet-n observed annually '.since 19U4 on a syn- chronised national basis during the week beginning the first Sunday in May. Last year it was celebrated in over 3,000 cities and towns in continental United States alone, with lucal Music Week committees in most of these places, so the purpose of the observance and the character of the participation is well known in this country. "Definite and lasting benefits have resulted from the Music Week Committee's practice of focusing public attention through each year on some specific aspect of music, as an art and as a social force. This has been done through a keynote, or central idea which Is emphasised, locally and nationally that particular year and toward which effort is directed. Among the keynotes of the past half dozen years have been "Foster Local Music Talent," "Support Group Music Activities," am "Make Good Music Familiar Music." in addition there has been permanent objective of promoting American music. "Let us use Music Week as at occasion on which to emphasize the harmonizing qualities of music and the atmosphere it creates of sympathetic understanding, comradeship, accord and common interest.

By PETER EDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 1.—The way a government agency can be a hero today and a heel tomorrow was never better illustrated than in the case of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the well and once oh so favorably known CCC. Three or four years ago, no one had enough praiss for the CCC, but today there seem to be about as many hot shots in the government out gunning for CCC as the CCC has camps, the latter number being around GOO. If you want to make a little side bet, just lay a buck or so 'that before-very long there will be more statesmen clamoring for restoring or enlarging the CCC than there are now clamoring in the name of economy for its discontinuance. These yells for building up the For Original Beauty Creations — — Phone 2592 Caldwell Beauty Shop First National Bank Building ing, leaving the enrolling of its members entirely to the state welfare agencies, who were charged with picking only boys from relief families, boys who could not gst jobs in private indusrty. And any CCC enrollee must -leave if he's offered a job. If Congress had changed the selective service law to take in boys from 18 to 20 years old as Army officers wanted the law changed, there would probably be no CCC today. .But Congress has repeatedly refused to lowsr the draft age below 20, and for that reason there is still the problem of what to do with the boys of from 17 to 20, of which there are some nine million. There is, too. the problem of what to do with the younger men who are turned down by the Army for physical deficiencies.

The second series of yells will in all likelihood come from farm belt congressmen' when they find out from their constituents that CCC soilj erosion and conservation projects! are being discontinued by the him-' dreds.

MAKES REDUCTION CCC's main justification for its own continuance, however/ is that it sincerely believes it has a job to do. Today, there are some 600 CCC camps in operation. At the height of the depression, there were 2500 camps, with 200 men to the. camp. CCC has cut down. It will cut down further, perhaps to 350 camps. Furthermore, CCC is making itself as much of an Army auxiliary as it can. It has built Army camps and military roads and airports. It has 115 camps on military reservations today, doing labor battalion jobs that relieve solders for strictly military duty. CCC's second big job is in the forest areas, largely in the west, where it has 177 camps for-refer- Bargain Night Every Night Excep Saturday.

These When defense talk began to get camps and the ones on military L little hot, there was agitation rom some militarists to make the ICC a purely military training school. CCC Director James J. \IcEntse spiked that one before the selective service law \vas passed. If the country was to have compulsory military service, said McEntce, hen military training for CCC would be nil right, but until there was selective service, it seemed mfair to single out boys from the poorer families and make them .he first front line recruits for a war. It was a sound argument, but n spite of it, CCC's reputation be- jan to suffer as an unmilitary and therefore to some people an unnecessary organization. TAKEN* FROM ARIVIY Then CCC was taken from the Army, which had administered it, and put in the Federal Security Agency along with the National Youth Administration. That was almost fatal. NYA had a bad name and was open to criticism on so many counts that the association of CCC did it more harm than good. And when economy programs were advanced, the two outfits were put under the same axs. There have been some charges that CCC was recruiting its members, but this CCC denies. The organization has never spent a dime of its own funds on recruit- resErvations account for about half of the present CCC strength. All other types of CCC camps are being discontinued as fast as their current soil conservation, park area, wildlife area, grazing or reclamation projects are completed The fun will begin when the congressmen begin to find out about that. * * * WASHINGTON PUNISHMENT Snappy, twinkling-eyed James J McEntee has taken a terrific nmount of punishment lately a? director of CCC in having to justify his boys before congressiona economy and appropriations committees...McEntee has never movec his family from their New Jersey home to Washington, where he came to take a temporary relie job-.. .But the other day, after Mrs. McEntee had read all the accounts of how her husband was raked over, the congressional coals, she called him up with ire in her voice...."What do you take all that for?'' she wanted to know.
