She-Your issue of May 11 contains two rather unkind references
to laZZ. First, at the end of an otherwise excellent letter about the Sacrament of Confirmation, I find "jazz club " opposed to "Catholic Action," and then irt an article by a Y.C.W. Chaplain I read of " jazz replacing the lost vocation of
work." I wonder whether these writers really know what they mean by " jazz " and if they have ever been to a jszz club or "jam session "? I can assure them that jazz clubs are on the whole far better places of entertainment for young people than the average dance hall with its sickening music and shuffling dancing.
After all, jazz is the truly popular music of this century. and as such should be written about with some degree of aiderstanding.
