Referring to the present position of
his country, Sungur pointed out that
the majority of the Turkish people

Revelli Calls
Band Tryouts
Meeting Today
Instrumentalists Sought
For New 'Pops' Band;
Auditions At 4:30 P.M.
If you can play a clarinet, French
horn or trombone and don't wish to
be a University band member, thenE
you'd better lay low for a week or
so,-because Prof. William D. Revelli,,
conductor of the University bands, is.
on the lookout for all students who
answer one of these descriptions.
However, anyone who does wish
to play in a University band, no
matter what instrument, needn't
wor'y. He has only to report at 4:30
p.m. today at Morris Hall to become
a member of the newly/ organized
Pops Bands, the first campus organi-
zation of its kind.
As a lure, Professor Revelli offers I
the fact that the Pops Band will cater
almost entirely to popular and light
concert music, presenting a series of
outdoor concerts in the spring. It
will also appear at home basketball
games and other campus events.
"The turnout at the first meeting
Wednesday was very encouraging,"
he reported, "but I can still use addi-
tionpl students in almost all sec-
tions. I especially need clarinets,
French horns and trombones."
Meeting only twice a week, the
Pops Band will afford an opportunity
for band participation for those stu-
dents who feel tiey lack the time
necessary for playing in the Concert
The first appearance of the new
organization will be made at the
Michigan State basketball game here
Saturday, Dec. 13, Professor Revelli
announced, and rehearsals next week
will be in preparation for that ap-
