Music, Too, Is Medicine: Any activity that helps to bring sick minds back to normal interests has a curative value. So the state hospitals through their recreational therapy work encourage the formation of choirs, orchestras, dramatic groups and the like. In addition to furnishing entertainment for others, the efforts of patients along these lines are of direct benefit to themselves. Choir singing helps to keep them in touch with the realities of life, with religous expression, with the festivals that mean so much to the healthy world outside. It helps, too, to make them ready to resume their normal places in that world when they are cured of their ailments.
