The popularity of a Sousa band concert is the direct result of the genius and instinct of John Philip Sousa in knowing what to give his audiences. He has been criticized at times for mixing the bright with the serious, but his own explanation for so doing makes a human and 'Unanswerable defense of his methods. He says: "When you go to a play say one of Shakespeare's do you blame th? dramatist if you are made to laugh? Do you want your money bacit on that account? If you find a joke in a beck written by George Meredith yci- don't but in a book by Dickens PIzac or Thackery, do you throw t'ie bock aside, or even think less of it because of the humor of it? Tell me?" . . . "Yet Shakespeare, Dickens, Thack eray and Balzac were all tragic writers. And, to say the least, the function of music is not to picture the dark side of life." "In the sub-consciousness of every musician lies the conviction that I am expressing now. The prime business of the artist is to entertain, to delight, bring laughter, and color in a grey and joyless world. Imagine a world without music, painting and books. Think of it, you could not whistle in the bathroom any morning if no one had composed a tune; you would be a dull boor if no books had ever been written; lacking the work of painters, and designers, ' your walls would be .barren of interest, your fur niture'ould be more hideous than most of it is now, your houses, clothe3 gardens there would be no gardens, no theatres, no pretty dresses in the streets. All life turned drab color." "The artist sits in his study, writing, painting, composing the joy anfl Color of life. You know the sayinsr, 'Art is the expression of man's joy in his work.' He works best wio works in joy, and his own delights he transmits to a world 'that is hungry for joy." "I am proud of the fact that I hav5 been called 'the Kipling or musi j. Kipling is a very great man, a pur veyor of infinite pleasure. Mark Twain taught us not to take life too seriously. Even in his works there are tragic passages, such as occur in the lives of the merriest of us. B it with him the human interest and the comedy prevail; so it should be with rs." That Souso is right, every one will agree who attends the concert at th? Academy of Music, on Tuesday aft ernoon, November 18, by Sousa an j his 'band.
