Don't Look Yet,Mrs. Garner

Among the many gavels in Vice-President Garner's collection is a
new one of Florida cedar carved with his likeness, cigar and all. In a
playful mood, he is shown about to bring it down on the unsuspecting
head of Mrs. Garner. He immediately thought better of the idea,
however.

arranged by the carilloneur from
compositions written for other in-
struments. Very little modern music
has been written for the carillon, but
some of the works of the earlier
composers have survived through the
years that carillons were never played.
The skill of the individual player is
shown in his arrangements and the
-music he himself has written. Pro-
-fessor Price has 'written 'several
pieces, some of which have been
published. He has also written one
book, the leading authority on the
carillon.' In 1-934 he received the
Pulitzer Prize in music, awarded by
Columbia University.
To play the carillon Professor Price
sits on a long bench in front of a
keyboard with handles and pedals
arranged like the'keys of the piano.
The pedals and the keys both work
the same bells, allowing the caril-
loneur to use more tones simultan-
eously. He hits the keys with 'his
fists (or his fingers to produce a
chord);' the -pedals are also used.
Hard Muscular Work
It is as hard musculat work for
the carilloneur to rehearse as it is
to play a concert. A replica of the
keyboard, with the hammers at-
tached to metal bars instead of bells,
is used for the practice. During
the actual concerts Professor Price
sits among the bells in a small, glass-
enclosed office just next' to the' big-
gest of the 53 bells, the one that
chimes the hours.
'The concerts every noon, Sunday
afternoons and Thursday evenings
are Professor Price's contributions -to
the musical tradition of the campus.
