up

By STANLEY SOFFIN
"Pick up your feet, play your
part, and Drive, Drive, Drive!"
This is the motto of the Univer-
sity of Michigan Marching Band,
and it won't be long until the
"Greatest Band in the Land"
marches onto the Michigan grid-
iron with another season of half-
time shows.
Regarded as one of the finest
marching bands in the nation, the
Michigan band has performed
throughout the United States and
has appeared in movies, national
magazines, and on television.
The traditionally all-male band
is under the direction of Prof.
William D. Revelli of the music'
school and his assistant, Prof.

George R. Cavender of the music
school. This year will mark Re-
velli's 27th year as director of
University bands. Drum Major
William McCann, '64M, will begin
his fourth year as Michigan's
"man up front."
The 185-piece band performs
for all home football games and
pep rallies. Also, it usually ac-
companes the team on two out-of-
town trips each year as guests of
a major auto company. In recent
years the marching band has per-
formed for high school football
games during their travels with
the varsty.
The band organization exists
only during football season, or
"marching band season" as the
musicans call it. Just as the foot-
ball team reports early to school
in the fall, so does the band. Dur-
ing the week before classes begin,
an intensive practice session on
both marching and music is held,
and it is for a balance between
these two facets that the band
strives to maintain throughout the
season.
After the semester begin, re-
hearsals and drills are held daily
Monday through Friday from 4:15
to 5:45 p.m. at Wines Field. A final
dress rehearsal, which attracts
many high school bands, is held
at 9 a.m. before each home game.
Bilik Arrangement
The shows feature the original
and imagnative music of Jerry H.
Bilik of the music school. His ar-
rangements of the opposition's
fight songs especially highlight
out-of-town performances.
Another interesting feature of
the band is their uniforms, new
last year. The widely-used cross-
belts were stripped in favor of a
vestee embodying a "M." The blue
and gold capes were continued and
represent the school colors (maize
and royal blue) on the otherwise
black and white uniforms. The
vestee, cadet-type caps, and spats
are all made pf white plastic. By
removing all white accessories, the
uniforms may then double for
concert use.
The uniforms cost about $120
apiece and were paid for by. a spe-
cial band fund.
New also last year were 12 white,
fiberglass tubas. Much lighter than
the conventional metal horns, they
make'it possible for the tuba play-
ers to more easily perform their
dance to the fight song after each
Michigan. score.
Honor Students
At Convocation
Students who have been chosen'
for their excellence in overall ac-
tivities and in academic achieve-
ment will be honored at the an-
nual honors convocation in early
May at Hill Auditorium.

THE BELL-The Michigan Marching Band entertains football crowds at the Stadium and away with
its lively marching, intricate formations and sparkling music. The band, considered one of the finest
of its kind in the United States, practices during orientation week and six days a week during the
football season.
BROsssDERsVIEW

American education was sud-
denly shocked into an all-out
movement for improvement when
the Soviet Union successfully
launched its first Sputnik in 1957.
Doing their part, educators and
administrators at the University
became concerned that "mass edu-
cation" would result in mass med-
iocrity, and initiated plans for the
establishment of an honors pro-
gram at the University..
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the
sociology department, head of the
honors program until September,
1960, viewed it as an opporunity
which would "give students who
are capable of absorbing a broad-
er and deeper education." He was
followed by Prof, Otto Graf of
the German department.
Invite 304)
The program works this way:
Approximately 10 per cent (300)
of each freshman class is invited
into the honors program after
carefulhexaminationrand screen-
ing. It is interesting to note that
high school.grades receive the

honors school or who express the
desire to be in honors are some-
times admitted.
Currently, about eight per cent.
of each class receives the four
year honors program,
Honor Courses .
Working roughly the same as
an excellerated coursein high
school, honors classes are theo-
retically more difficult than the
courses given to students in "reg-
ular" classes. Such honor classes'
are offered by almost every de-
partment in the literary college.
Counseling received by honor
students is considered somewhat
superior to that. received in the
regular literary college 'becautse
each counselor andstudent be-
come better acquainted and be-
cause there is generally a greater
enthusiasm among honors coun-
selors than in regular offices.
When the honor student reach-
es his junior year, his work until

graduation is done under the sup-
ervision of the department in
which he is concentrating. To re-
ceive a honors degree in a major
usually requires an over-all 3
average and 3.2 average in the
field of concentration. All depart-
ments in the literary college offer
honor,.degrees.
Honors Council
To aid in guiding the program
by planning social events and
seminars, communicating com-
plaints to the council, and helping
advise on new programs for su-
perior students, a student steer-
ing committee is elected by the
honors students each spring.
The University alsohas estab-
lished honors ..programs in tihe
musio .and medical .schools. Re-
cently, there has been the desire
to extend the program to other
schools and colleges, especially the
education school, but no definite
plans have been made.
