All of America is expected to be singing during the week beginning Sunday, February 16, and ending Saturday, February 22.
The movement is endorsed by United States Commissioner of Education Claxton; leading state, city, and county superintendents: music supervisors; and leaders of community singing throughout the United States. The objects are “to awaken and develop a love for singing and to make America a singing nation and through the medium of songs of the right sort to inspire us to higher ideals and to unite us as a people.” The ends sought are worthy ones.
