Concert Band

Leads Band's Concert

To Hold Annual
No Charge For Admission;
Cornet Trio And Flute
Solo Will ;Be Given
Michigan's 80-piece Varsity Con-
cert Band will present its annual;
Spring Concert at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday,
April 27, in Hill Auditorium under
the direction of Prof. William D. Re-
velli. There will be no charge for
admission.' -
The program will open with the
overture, "Oberon," by Carl M. von
Weber. Next will be a tone poem,
"Message of the Chimes," by Carle-
ton L. Colby. This piece describes
the memories that the distant chimes
bring back to the Weary Wanderer
of the quiet Sunday mornings of his
youth. The chimes remind him how
he has disregarded the teachings of
his youth. .
Will Present Concert Trio
Everett Kisinger, '37SM, Max Mit-
chell, Grad., and Louis Vanmannen,
'39, will present a cornet trio, "Flir-
tations," by Herbert L. Clarke and
"Caprice" by Forest Buchtel. Clarke'
was formerly solo cornetist in John
Philip Sousa's band.
Then, before the intermission, the
entire band will give a Spanish Suite,
"In Malaga," by Frederic Curzon.
This suite, the most ambitious work
to date of the young British com-
poser, is written in the truest Span-
ish idiom.
A nocturne from "Two American
Sketches" by Thomas Griselle will
also be presented. The nocturne's
richness of harmony is considered
both pleasing and effective.
Is Second Formal Concert
After the intermission, the band
will portray "Slavonic Rhapsody No.
1" by Friedman. Then Eldor Pflug-
hoeft, '40, will present a flute solo.
The band will close the program
with a descriptive piece, "Les Deux
Petits Japonais," by Charrosin and a
Manx tone poem, "Mannen Veen,"
by Haydn Wood. This latter work is
founded. on four Manx folk-songs
taken from the Isle of Man. y
This concert will be the second
formal concert the Concert Band
will give this year. The band's new
set of chimes will be featured in the
"Message of the Chimes."

2 Thuos Loot
Village Bank
DETROIT, April 20.-)--Two
robbers whose departure was speeded
by a flood of tear gas from an alarm'
system looted the Depositors' State
Bank of Northville of $10,000 at noon
They changed automobiles at the
Ioutskirts of Detroit and continued
their flight. A third man waited in
an automobile outside the bank. A
fourth man was in the motorcar to
which the trio transferred at six-
mile road and police assumed he, too,
was an accomplice.
The gas attack was set off by W.
J. Schriemer, of Grand Rapids, a
state bank examiner, as he lay on
the floor behind the counter. He
seized the first opportunity to touch
the trigger as the robber who had
been scooping currency from the cash
drawers into a canvas sack turned
his back.
Gas spurted from eight jets about
the banking room and the robbers
fled, coughing and with streaming
eyes. The eight persons who were
in the bank when the robbers entered
also were forced to leave.
The two robbers entered the bank
quietly. Then they produced pistols.
One of them stepped to the teller's
window where A. Russell Clark was
receiving a 4eposit from Miss Frances
Cousins, a Michigan Bell Telephone
Co. employe.
"Take it easy," he said. "It's a stick
Then he seized the money that Miss
Cousins was depositing.
The robbers ordered all persons in
the bank to lie on the floor. One of
them went behind the counter, trans-
ferred the currency from the cash
drawers to his money sack, then or-
dered Clark to open the vault. Clark
convinced him the vault was operated
by a time clock and could not be

During the month of March there
were 13,739 dispensary calls at the
Health Service, according to the
monthly report released yesterday by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the Health Service.
The large number of calls was due
mainly to the increase in acute colds,

students treated for colds during the
month' and 835 were treated during
the same period last year.
Mental hygiene interviews were
given to 1,846 students and dispen-
sar.y nurse treatments to 1,323, the

in eye refractions, 193 being given

rolled students receive this attention.

pendicitis and 12 cases of pneumonia
