Jazz Is Slowly, Surely Passing Into
discard Says Noted Dance Reformer

I --- - -

Chicago, Jan. 4.--"The Jazz" is
slowly but surely going into the dis-
card, according to a statement issued
here by Fenton Bott, of Dayton, 0.,
director ofdance reform of the Am-
erican National association, masters of
dancing,
"The 'Fox Trot' is the dance that re-
ceives the most abuse by the dancer,"
said the statement, "and it is the 'Fox.
Trot' music as written and played in
'Jazz' fashion that causes the dancer
to abuse this popular dance. There is
nothing wrong with the 'Fox Trot' orl
the steps in the 'Fox Trot,' but is is aj
conceded fact among all' teachers of
dancing that the Oriental suggestive-i
ness and broken time in the Fox Trot!
Jazz music, together with the lack of!
sufficient supervision, is responsibleE
for the downward trend of the dance.

"The American National association1
of Masters of Dancing began two years
ago, to work for cleaner dancing. Hun-

PROF SAR AN RA
FORD'S PLANAS UNSOUND'
That Henry Ford's plan to financeI
the completion of the Muscle Shoals
nitrate plant is fundamentally un-
sound is the opinion of Prof. I. Leo
sharfman of the economics depart-
ment. It would not be the immediate
outcome of the issuance of $40,000,000
of paper money which would be se-
cured only by the Muscle Shoals!
plant, but that the precedent that T O
would set in the financing of public'
improvements would be dangerous to l
the financial status of the United
States.
To issue this money, backed by no
gold reserves, would be little morel
than printing paper money with noth-
ing behind it at all. People would not,
in the opinion of Prof. Sharfman, be'
willing to accept the proposed money
as secured by the Muscle Shoals prop-
etry. They would simply look at the!
money as being backed by the good
faith of the United States. The securi-
ty of the property is not practical as
Muscle Shoals cannot be liquidated
with ease.
To indulge in this practice for the
financing of public improvements,
would be following in the dangerous
footpath of Russia, and other Euro-
pean countries. This condition has
been the result of a highly attenuatedl
currency, without proper additions to!
the gold reserves of these countries.

ands of college deans, police women
everywhere, and finally the public
dance hall proprietors are listed in
the work with us. We feel and hope
that the crest of the wave of this dis-
gusting wriggling 'Jazz' has been
reached and reports to us from every
part of the country show 'clean danc-
ing' crusades being started every-
where.
"All exaggerated movements, es-
pecially of the upper parts of the body,
are in bad-taste in social dancing, and
are never found with true refinement
and culture."
Nine don'ts are given in the state-
ment. They are:
"Don't permit vulgar jazz music to
be played.
"Don't permit young men to hold
their partners tightly.
"Don't permit partners to dance
with cheeks close or touching.
A Few More Dont's
"Don't permit 'neck holds,'
"So-called 'shimmy' or 'toddle' danc-
ing should not be tolerated.
"Don't permit dancers to take either
exceptionally long or short steps.
"Don't dance from the waist up;
dance from the waist down.
"Don't permit suggestive movements.
"Don't permit dancers to copy the
extremes that are now used on the
modern stage."
