different than those of an adult
Prof. Marguerite V. Hood, of the
music school, points out that chil-
dren's performances often "depend
on physical condition. If they get
tired and slump, they will sing flat.
"They have a certain group feel-
ing. If something starts to hap-
pen, it spreads throughout the
During the interview, Prof. Hood
emphasized that "they are very
sensitive to each other.
"When they sing in a large
group, they sometimes don't know
whether they are in tune or not,"

they're all fifth and sixth gradeI
public school children."
When queried as to the atten-
tion of the children, Prof. Hood
replied, "They just can't sit still."
Selection of works to be per-
formed is also difficult. This is
true primarily with regard to large
.compositions. In this line, "there
are not too many excellent works
that are written for children and
are childlike. You can make the
children learn them, but it doesn't
Prof. Hood emphasized "we try
to do things that will be worth-
while in the lives of the children,
both now and in the future."
The children represent "a pret-
ty good cross-section of America.
Although they are really excellent,
they are unpredictable. You can't
have the assurance of a stable
performance as with adults."
Conductor Hood said "they are
frank and very refreshing. They
are so scrubbed and clean and
anxious to do well and so thrilled
with it all. They have a wonder-
ful sparkle and aren't sophisticat-
ed or blase. Then, too, this is
a special occasion for them."
Festival Youth Chorus first per-
formed May 16, 1913, under the
name of "Children's Chorus." In
succeeding years the group was
known as "Children's Festival
Chorus," "Young People's Chorus,"
and "Youth Chorus," before its
Prof. Hood summed up the at-
titude of the children by saying,
"If they had their way, they would
clap for themselves."

Why Sen. Estes Kefauver
reads The Reader's Digest
"°A magazine like The Reader's Digest takes up where
school leaves off. It touches on an impressive array of
significant subjects. It throws a white light on the issues
that confront us. It educates as it entertains."
In May Reader's
