State Assistance Grants To Needy to'Be Hiked tJTTLB' ROOK, June 11. W1 — Jazz Recordings Bring High Price From Germans FRANKFURT. Germany — M>i — Believe it or not, a new American- made jazz record may cost you the legal equivalent of 50 to 60 dollars the musical black-market in post-war Germany. The acute shortage of discs and the lively demand from German devotees make the price high. How do American jazz . records', so highly rated by German youth, get here? M>st f them made their way across the ocean in a soldier's trunk. Real jazz is quite new to German youngsters. It still has a doubt- '. ful reputation with the older generation. The roots for this attitude go back to Hitler's "Third Reich". It was propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels who told the people that, jazz Is something "decadent and degenerate." Towards the end -of the war the Nazis were forced to make some concessions. Tlie people had become more and more tired the longer the war dragged on.
