' We have but one voice. The body Is
the aervant of the mind when It la

. to produce vole while holding my mind
on various muscles, dealing on tha er
fects aa though they were causes. This
'was not lawful, consequently I waa an

. "While working my way back to
lawful' course, I discovered that In or-

must absolutely fife my mind from my

J ."Tha world Is beginning to wake up
to : tba unlimited power of the mind.
, Wa seek for tha voice life not death.
Deception must not take the place of

"Many teachers say, begin with ma

education becomes vital. It Is not one-

, "The vocal organs , are the natural

They respond to the mind, by an In
herent law of their own. There la no
law that governs the human voice, ex

"The earnest student will discover
that nature'a laws are as fixed In re

gard to chemistry. Perfect tona means
perfect poise. It has a center of bal

nor growth. At the center of the tone,
as at the center of the earth, there la
perfect repose; not flip repose of In

cleus of a Beed Is the ftermlnal point
so the center of the tone, is the ideal
point from which all true voice de
velopment must start. This gives unity
