Marching Band
To Hold Annual
Banquet Today
Final Gathering Of Year
Will Feature Speeches,
Singing,_Football Films
Officially ccncluQing the football
marching season for 1941, the Uni-
versity Marching Band will hold its
annual post-season banqut at 6:15
p.m. today in the Union.
Dsigned to be a final get-together
for marching band members who will
subsequently become members of the
concert or regihental bands, the
banquet will feature moving pictures
of the Michigan-Columbia football
game.
Ordinarfly making two out-of-
town trips each year, the band was
to have attended that game this fall,
but the necessary funds were lacl-
ing and the trip had to be cancelled.
Guests of honor at the banquet
today will be Prof. William D. Revelli,
conductor of the University bands,
Lieut. John A. Lohla of the depart-
ment of military science and tactics,
drillmaster, and Herbert G. Watkins,
assistant secretary of the University
and band business manager.
Following short talks by these men,
the program will be concluded with
some group singing of Michigan
songs, led by band personael mana-
ger Ed Kruth, '42SM. The banquet
program is under the direction of
George Irwin, '43.
Numbering 127 pieces, the march-
ing band .this year was declared out-
standing by prominent sports writers
ho saw it perform.
Blue" Bird'
Has Peculiar.
PropT rouble
Strange indeed are the problems
confronting Helene Herzfeld, '42,
properties head for Play Production's
forthcoming presentation of Maeter-
linek's "The Blue Bird."
Faced Cith the curious necessity
of finding not only a live bluebird,
but also daisies an4, aples as big as
tables, Miss Herzfeld is, to say the
least, slightly puzzled.
In addition to such properties, she
must see to the making of hundreds
of organdy lilies for a *graveyard
scene. These must be constructed in
such a way as to spring out of the
tobstones in a cloud of smoke, and
all this at a moment's notice.
One of the other principal unsolved
problem is this: the play calls for
a grou'p of bircds, black of color and
happy with life, to be transformed
in. a trice to birds, blue of color and
deader than proverbial doornails.
Now, how can it be done without
making somebody a dastardly killer
oi defenseless animals?
4 The list of overwlelming require-
*ments does 'not even end here. It
seems of vital importance that some-
where the group obtain a life-size
stuffed cat and a dog of the same
variety. Anyone who thinks that -this
last prcblem is simple will be wel-
/ come to so say, providing they can
help Helene out of her predicame:it.
