Let Child Begin Music Studies at School

"Save the parents' ears," A. Eu-
gene Burton, Director of String
Instruction and Orchestra Train-
ing at Newton, Iowa, said yester-
Burton stressed a plan of teach-
ing the pupil at school for at least
one month before permitting him
to take his instrument home. In
this way the student will be able
to play tunes for his parents and
friends right from the start and
there will be no more scratching
bows to bother neighbors.
Equally important, Burton said,
is the problem of fitting the size of
the instrument to the size of the
student. Fourth graders, for ex-
ample, should aot be forced to
play instruments designed for
their full grown parents.
To carry out such a plan of pro-
viding school instruments, he des-
cribed his "Five Year Plan" to im-

tion and planning in the music
education department.
His plan starts with a program
for overcoming the resistance of
school boards to buying instru-
ments for the struggling band or
orchestra. To start the group, he
suggests approaching PTA and
community groups for funds.
Next, he says, the teacher
should supply the school board
with a plan of buying which indi-
cates the number and type of in-
struments to be purchased each
year. He could then show how the
music group will be able to oper-
ate from the first year and then
expand to include more pupils as
the additional instruments are
made available.
Finger Pattern

press school boards with the direc-
"have the correct playing position
from the start."
Additional advantages of this
method he stated, are that the
student is able to play simple
tunes almost from the beginning.,
Introducing music to the school
was another important part of his
planned program. Burton said he
would explain the instruments be-
fore the group and then invite
children to try playing them. After
putting the group at ease he "gives
his pitch" for the instrumental
music groups.
Pitch, Rhythm Test
To pick the children Who are to
receive the school instruments,
Burton gives the C Shore Pitch
and Rhythm Test. He said he
doesn't feel that "any test can pre-
dict the musical ability" of -pupils
but it does provide a pattern for
distributing the instruments.
Each student is permitted to
rent his instrument for one year
with the understanding that he
must purchase one if he wishes to
continue his music lessons after
that period. This one-year rental
plan frees the instruments of the
school for introduction to another
group of students the next year.

Two rocket firings by a Univer-
sity aeronautical engineering team
at Ft. Churchill, Manitoba, were
successful, it was reported yester-
day by Leslie M. Jones, research
engineer of the Engineering Re-
search Institute.
First in a large number of rock-
ets to be fired by the University
in connection with the Interna-
tional Geophysical Year, the mis-
siles were aerobee rockets carry-
ing instruments for measuring
temperature and wind, Jones said.
Missile firings took place Satur-
day, July 20, and Tuesday, July 23.
The aerobees reached heights of
58 and 56 miles, respectively.
In the upper atmosphere, infor-
mation was recorded which is ex-
pected to lead to better under-
standing of weather processes and
long-range forecasting.

operation with the University Is

Pieces of a glass-like, obsidian
material, uncovered near Menomi-
nee, Michigan five weeks ago by a
group of archaeologists, indicate
that there was trade between
Eastern and Western Indians as
long as 3,000 years ago.
The director of the group, Albert
C. Spaulding, said the obsidiarr,
which was found in the burial pits
of the old Copper Indians of
Northern Michigan occurs natur-
ally only in the Wsetern part of
the United States. He said, "The

Other discoveries were copper
beads, sacred ochr (rouge), arrow
