like the ones which will be bought
from one of the two English firms
can not be heard at a distance of
more than a half mile from the
bell tower, which means that
there will be very few places off
the campus where the carillon will
be heard. This mistaken idea has
arisen from comparisons between
a true carillon and the many

This is a carillon of forty-eight bells ready for installation in a bell tower. It is very similar to the
instrument which is to be purchased and installed in the Burton Memorial Campanile, by the alumni
classes which attended the University during the pr esidency of the late Marion LeRoy Burton, in whose
honor the project has been created.

ENGULFING A NATION!

who attended, a concert in Lough-
borough, where one of the foun-
dries now producing perfect bells
is situated, says that the music is
more than impressive, that it is
deep and spiritual, and that it pro-
duces a more profound feeling
than a church sermon. "Its mem-
ory lingers longer than the words
of any speaker that I have ever
heard," he adds, "and after hav-
ing heard my first concert I re-
mained in Loughborough almost
two weeks longer than I had origi-1
nally planned to hear two, more
demonstrations. The listeners re-
tired to the homes of people liv-
ing in the vicinity, usually about
a half mile from the bell tower,
and listened to the program
which usually lasted about fifteen
minutes at the most becausetof
the strenuous physical exertion
required to play the instrument."
Professor Moore, who has studied
carillons throughout Europe is a
member of the purchasing com-
mittee which has been chosen by
the classes of '21 to '28 to buy
the carillon to be installed here.
Bok Owns Notable Set
There are a few notable caril-
lons in this country, the most fa-
mous of which has been bought
by Edward Bok and placedgin a
beautiful tract of land in Florida
called the Bird Sanctuary. This
sanctuary has been created by Mr.
Bok as a bird reservation and he
has built a bell tower there and
installed a carillon which is con-
sidered oneeof the most melodious
in existence.

Plans have not yet been adopted Marion LeRoy Burton, but the
for the campaign for the bell University of Michigan club of
tower itself which is to be called Ann Arbor which has undertaken
the Burton Memorial Campanile this project will soon announce its
in memory of the late President organization. In the meantime,
