When he was asked how Gen. Douglas Mac Arthur got to Australia, he related how the "sweet young thing" asked him the same question. His reply was that MacArthur rowed a boat from the Philippines to Australia. Later, the "sweet young thing" asked how we bombed Toyko. Mr. Roosevelt told her: from a new secret base at Shangri-la, the never-never land created by Author James Hilton. What's more, the President said she believed him. Mrs. Roosevelt Helps To people who asked Mr. Roo^?- t'elt recently whether he planned to reduce non-defense spending Oscoola Chinese Merchant to the "sweet, young things" who, included occasionally among White House dinner guests, ask, questions about the war that are becoming known for their naivete.

Press Conference Relay To these people, and many more, Mr.' Roosevelt listens and often takes what they say into consideration when preparing important state decisions. Many of their complaints, praise and ideas about how the country or the war should be run are relayed to the nation by the chief executive through his press conferences. One of the president's favorite press conference methods of illustrating a' particular point is to say, "only the other day, a storekeeper told me..." Maybe he actually talked to the storekeeper, or may, be he had a letter from him. Some times stories of this nature are plainly parables, told to illustrate trmV way a certain situation is affecting Mr. Average Man. ..'£.

Addressing the Music Educators National Conference at Milwaukee recently, Bartholomew expounded the belief that living on "canned' music from day to day is just as unsatisfactory as any unvaried die 1 of canned food, Music " is a fundamental human need," he contended, "and .something inside o you goes hungry and empty with out it." Participation Good Citizenship The phonograph, radio and ' sound-films were conceded to be "magnificent inventions," but the speaker held that they made it accessary for Americans to guard nove intensively than ever against permitting the audienc habit to dominate adult life in the United States. "Today, with a second world war iripon us more devastating than the first, when we are fighting for the democratic way of living in all its phases, when everything that we believe in is under attack, we must fight this audience habit," Bartholomew declared. "One of the fundamental principals of good citizenship in a democracy is to oarticipate. Music Inspirational "Listening is not enough! If we are to win this war, as win it we undoubtedly shall, a part of our job as music educators is to see that more of thc music which we learned and in which we participated with such enthusiasm in school and college is actively carried over into adult life. We must learn again to take the singing spirit with us into our daily work."
