«M#ason and Dixon Seven" and iKen-
iaedy's Orchestra Chosen to
Furnish Music

Pep was the keynote of the
practice which was held by the
Sophomore band last night in
preparation for the annual
spring games. If noise is any
criterion the sophs bid fair to
outshine anything that the fresh-
men will be able to put in the
field in the way of music. In
addition, the members of the
class of 2 have a couple of sur-
prises up their sleeves which
may cause the yearlings some
uneasy moments during the
spring fracas.
M. B. Curless, '24, of the Var-
sity band, is helping put the men
in shape, while W. W. Spanagel,
'25E, holds the positions of man-
ager and drum major.
