He resented the .money spent on them and declared' quite bluntly that taxpayers wero not happy In carrying this added burden In the yearly budget. Ho spoke about the drawing teacher. "She comes in and there's a lot of fussing with palnt-boxeu and wuter-cups and scissors and the children have a grand time and that's all there Is to it. I never saw a student go out of school knowing any more about art or music than when h« came In," he declared. "It's a waste of time and money and I am going to use every sort of influence In my power to have the two departments dropped." Tho city I lived In at that tlmo was a place of about 30,000 people.' Theru was every opportunity to know and follow tho careers of growing children. Some Become Masters I lived to see the day when many of tho boys and girls who shrilled their first do-re-ml's In Its schools develop Into real artists. You heard ono this week over In the national chain. Ho has spent'years In Europe; he Is In every way a real artist. Another boy went on with orchestration. His Is one of the most famous orchestras In Amurlca today. He played a cheap violin In staccato jerks In the old days In the high school auditorium and no one thought of him then ever becoming an outstanding musician. Others have become lesser lights but have taken their muslo earnestly and made much of It.

One boy who drew awkward little pictures and made queer splashes of paintings out of the cups and pans on his desk went Into sculpture and later Into architecture. He Is In Now York with a big firm now and Is designing outstanding buildings that uro sure to bring him fame. Another Is a cartoonist who, I believe, has a future well In hand. Few Exploit HUtory You say that these are only a handful out of many. Well, that in true, but how many are heard of who became famous In mathematics or English or history? My argument Is that aside from being a roundlng-out Influence that gives much happiness and appreciation to life, there Is a real and substantial benefit derived from musical and art courses In school. Until we can make music and art fundamental to the lives of our people wo shall never, as a nation, rise to tho heights of the foreign masters, of whom America has had only too few. • . • * The depression has hit these two things In the schools and I am sorry. However, they will emerge stronger and finer than ever, 1 am sure, and everybody will be happier for It aomo day. YOUNG PEOPLE ML GATHER AT PARTY Five prizes will bo awarded, refreshments will be served, and a musical program will be presented when the Young Men's and Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association of the Church of the Latter-Day Saints entertains at a "bunco" party this evening.
