In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"The innocent, naive, child-like enthusiastic love play sounds of Charlie Hoxie' s horn which, in the underplay of saying little, said so much, mingled with the four-to-a-bar, tinny piano sounds emanating from the catsup-red and egg stain-yellow frontage of a brick building, billeted, in purple letters, with the notice "Jesus Saves". The two sounds fled from opposite sides of Lenox Avenue and, in their mad anxiety to proclaim to the world their respective messages, met and destroyed each other, their energies dropping in a death heap on the scattered base markers, painted on the street for the Sunday game of stickball."
