V, _ , To VICE-PR1=:sIDE2~ Ts: In order to maintain the dignity and importance of the ofhce of State Vice-President, it is necessary to perform faithfully the duties pertaining to it as defined by the Constitution. Your attention is respectfuhy called to Sections 2 and 3 of Article XII. The M. T. N. A. can only organize the methods of musicians, and assert the dignity oi the profession fn the large cities where the dignity of art is already recognized. The State Associations are the sole means of reaching the people in the smaller places where art and the individual teacher have most to suffer from { popular ignorance. Every township must be reached, and the taste of its people educated. Vice Presidents will please send all M. T. N. A. mem- bership collections directly to the Secretary, with the names of the members thus paying. To l\’lEM1s1~1ks: It is the duty of members to aid the State Vice-President in all possible ways. The great work for the current year is the raising of the Orchestral and Concert Endowment Fund as resolved upon at Philadelphia. The hrst gun in this campaign was fired immediately after ‘ the Philadelphia meeting, by a lady organist of New York City, who interested her pastor and choir in the work to such a degree that preparations were at once made for giving an operetta in the lecture room, for the fund, in the interests of National Education and the elevation of the masses. Let every organist and choir do something of the sort, sacred or secular; let every Conservatory join in the work, and let every teacher interest hisor her pupils in giving PARLOR MUSICALES, with an admission price of from IO to 50 cents, or $1.00. An AVERAGE of $3.00 raised or contiibuted by EVERY teacher in America will complete the fund before the next meeting at Detroit. The Trustees of the fund will give a special reeeipt for all moneys sent for the fund. All Concert Fund moneys should be sent to VV. H. Dana, Treasurer, \lVarren, Ohio, who will return a personal receipt, and one from the Trustees aforesaid. . A. R. PARSONS, President, Steinwa Hall New York. + H. 8.
