Whether the notes are arranged to stimulate, as in a marching song, or to soothe, as in a lullabye, music does affect our emotions. The recent rash of jungle rhythms combined with flagrantly suggestive lyrics has contributed its fair sharetoourover- •U problem of both youth and adult deliquency. Rock-and-roll, shows have started wholesale riots in some instances, been forced to close, ordered out of town. Less measurable is the infinitely greater effect of recordings which -relay sex stimuli by radio and into ten million, parted cars. . ,", I submit that not all rock-and- roll is evil and thus Intended. .' There is such a fine line between the. two kinds of music we are discussing that censors have been disinclined to try to legislate a distinction. There is a predominance of Jungle rhythms, perverted by design so as to become downright dirty. And the most amazing reaction has resulted. the youngsters, havt, themselves, rebelled. Recently the Wall Street Journal published a front page survey on "TV. Slipping Discs." It revealed that teenagers have reduced their buying of "pop" records drastically, alarming the industry. . , .. "The recording companies have been shovlngsomush trash down the teenagers' throats that • subconsciously the kids are rebelling," theorizes Benjamin Karot * New York City dealer, A brief telephone' check by thy own office confirmed that, nationally, record sales in this category id far thiayearareoff • SOperccnt!; ; The record business has been booming more than 20 per cent a year for jlveyears. Thisyear it will be less than 5 per cent. In desperation, some com" panics have dumped a flood tide of junk songs by "cheap" unknowns onto-the market in an effort to improve the look of the books for 1959. That only made matters worse. The youngsters will not pay 98 cents to .near what they have already:neard on their transistor,-: radios and found "ugh I" The nation's 4,500 disc •Jockey*-, -giving "exposure to new: talent." have so overexposed the eggs that they've ; Wiled the goose. • I hear the argument that there is not mbredegeneracy in "modern" music' than there was in the Charleston and the Black Bottom. :of,;a generation ago. 'The' jaiz of a generation ago was ludicrous, but not lewd. There is a difference between necking and petting and anybody who pretends otherwise is a hypocrite.' ' There is a difference between , decent dancing and indecent ' 'dancing and fun music and filthy 1 music. And 'if: today's blase adults are unable to make the distinction, their,; youngsters are fortunately more discriminating. With all the talk about "what's , wrong with the younger generation," I have been highly gratified to discoverfromtheirwan- ing interest in junk music that another generation is already plowing under its own wild oats. WASHINGTON SCB4E ,, Dirksen Imitates Foes By GEORGE DIXON WASHINGTON - Senator .Everett McKinley. Dirksen, of Illinois, is the Minority Leader of the Senate," but be is not chairman of theSenateRepubli- can Policy Committee. The GOp p olicy*rriakingchair- manship is retained jeajously by the Senate's ranking minority member, Senator Styles Bridges, of New Hampshire. No such division of powers exists in the Democratic hierarchy of the Senate. Lyndon B. Johnson won't tolerate it. The Texan is both Majority Leader and Chairman of theDemocratic Policy Committee. Anyone who forgets. this is sharply reminded. •'.<> ,\ Senator Johrtiiocu'is-: himself fill 'in the 7 press on Democratic policy, but Senator Bridges encourages Senator Dirksen to perform the briefing chore for the Republicans. Bridges turned over the job of policy spokesman and press liaison man to Dirksen because the soft-spoken Middle Westerner has become so good at it Dirksen, in fact, has become good at a lot of things that nine months ,• - • -semed beyond him. The - - . .nazing metamor- phosis, at least outwardly, has taken place in the senior senator from IlJiflois since he took over the Minority Leadership from William F. Knowland last January. • ; Dirksen used:to be athunderer and a denouncer. Hehas become a cooer and a coaxer. He used to be brusque, and easily nettled. Now he exudes charm and can't be stung by the most proficient and practiced stinger into detectable irritability. It used to seem to many of us that he took himself much too rseriously-^ow he holds himself up for examination before us and makes jokes about him' -»iM«,«h4t «chieyed what many ^^^.*€^^iei{4*-'= •^riaftHmpOjwible- -themantK I" rw E58|ninr^< without 'Seffi s!r importance. •/ ... Dirksen was by no means the unanimous choice of that Senate Republicans for their leader The liberals. includingGeorge Aiken, of Vermont; John Sherman Cooper, of Kentucky! Clifford P.

Kuckel is * thousand times happier with him than he was with his fellow- Californian, Knowland. If, because of any unexpected jolt, Dirksen loses his aplomb, he quickly recovers it. On the Senate floorthe other day he was stung into exploding; "My God I" He caught himself and added, as if merely finishing the sentence---"but I say. it reverently." His press briefings, as I reported in a previous column, are riots. For one thing he does a take-off of Lyndon Johnson that convulses us. Johnson, as you know, has a habit of getting his face'within inches of anyone with whom he wishes to hold serious dig-?, course. Dirksen will wait-until a reporter, preferably a female, tries to pin him down too closely, then make the questioner recoil by Almost rubbing noses. Cbe startled lady of the press nearly went backward out of her chair at the latest press brief• ing when the Dirksen face wa suddenly thrust at iier. The Minority Leader's char • is as devastating with h fellow-policymakers as with t press. He does most of the tal ing at thepolicycommltteese.' sions. with Chairman Bridge acquiescence. Dirksen makes no secret t this. He'll tell us frankly: "We discussed civil rights.
