Title pg26
Description down since they've only heard the words. So, much time is spent in practicing sounds and in using the words they know. The school has been experiencing difficulty in getting text-books. Children's books in the grades suited to the classes are usually immature and un-suited to adult minds. A partial solution has been found by careful selection of materials such as the history of the founding of Utah, the origin of holidays, the Topaz Times and the city's constitution. The advanced classes have been able to use Life and Reader's Digest with some success. The school feels that its purpose will have been accomplished if its students become able to handle every day conversation and instructions in English. And in attaining this end, they will have gained in some measure, the long-term goal of preparation for resettlement which is set up by the Adult Education Department. One school which had its inception in •Tanforan, is the Music School, While this cannot be called an adult school as over half of its 600 students are under 18 years of age, it comes under the general directive policies of the Adult Education Section. The school is a supplement to the High School and the Elementary School music program, as well as being an adult institution.. The youngsters come here to take the well-known piano, voice, violin, and other music lessons. Though the students come to the centralized school, instead of going to various teachers scattered over the city, they find just as many excuses to skip lessons now and then as they did on the outside, ? Utai, an old Japanese song medium is taught by the Music School. These are songs which accompany the ancient Noh dramas. While the idea of dramatic song is the same as Grand Opera, the sounds are strange indeed mingled with the strains of Beethoven and Bach. The Ivlusic School has its practical as well as cultural aspect because the teachers are getting marvelous preparation for the outside and many of its students will be qualified to teach when they are relocated, • . *» Women who have always been busy keep- n '-'"'^:_____a*] «-* ^ --'"' """-^**> i i dktrttW T^ V J 26
