Band Concert
University Men's Glee Club
To Appear In Rendition
Of Roy Harris Selection
Revell To Conduct
The singing of the University
Men's Glee Club was yesterday added
to an already full program planned
for the University Concert Band's
annual spring concert to be presented
Tuesday, April 14, in Hill Auditorium.
The Glee Club will appear with the
band in a special rendition of Roy
Harris's "Freedom's Land," written
for band and glee club, band con-
ductor Prof. William D. Revelli re-
As guest soloist for the evening,
Johanna Harris, a Victor Red Seal
recording artist, will appear at the
piano to present the world premiere
of "Concerto for Piano and Band,"
the first piece of itsikind ever to be
composed, and written by her hus-
band, Mr. Harris.
A third Harris number on the pro-
gram'will be another new piece writ-
ten especially for band entitled
"When Johnny Comes Marching
Other numbers on what promises
to be one of the finest programs of
the year, Professor Revelli said, in-
clude "Overture to Anacreon, by
Cherubini, "The Sorcerer's Appren-
tice" by Dukas and "El Relicario" by
Following the appearance of Mrs.
Harris, the band will again take the
stage, playing "Newsreel" by Schu-
man, "Guaracha" by Morton Gould,
"Roumanian Rhapsody" by Enesco
and Sousa's immortal "Stars and
Stripes Forever."
Always a booster of band music
and a real friend of the University
Bands, Mr. Harris is a pioneer in the
field of band composition, most band
music having been previously ar-
ranged from orchestral works.
Probably the most active of cam-
pus organizations, the University
Band wil be making its first formal
campus appearance since the con-
cert which followed a state music
clinic held earlier in the year.
~'Best' Platoon
To Be Chosen
Cadet Officers Of ROTC
To HoldCompetitions
The decision to hold platoon com-
petitions to determine the best-
drilled platoon in the unit became
the first act of newly appointed ca-
det ROTC officers at a special meet-
ing held yesterday. dd
Present plans, according to cadet
colonel Verne C. Kennedy, '42E, call
for the selection of the best platoon
in each company by the end of next
week. The following week the best
platoon in each battalion will be de-
termined, and one week later the
winner for the unit will be selected.
The drill program for the unit, now
entirely in the hands of the cadet
officers, will probably emphasize
company drill for the coming weeks,
Kennedy said, in preparation for the
coming Federal inspection.
The University ROTC unit won a
rating of excellent at the inspection
last year, and it is hoped that this
year's unit will be able to duplicate
that honor.

Other plans affecting the unit as
a whole are in the making, Kennedy
reveale , but as yet there can be no
definite annoumcement concernin

-Boinbei1 Scholarship To Gain
As Sorority Eliminates Band

In a move design'ed to fulfill the
principle of "equity" behind the
Bomber -Scholarship Plan, Kappa
Kappa Gamma sorority will use re-
corded music instead of an orchestra
at its annual spring formal and do-
nate the saving to the Bomber-Schol-
arship Fund, it was announced yes-
This contribution, although not
among the most sizable promised, will
be in accord with the plan's request
for student sacrifices and is not a
charitable" donation.
"At the time we voted to pass this
proposal, we felt that other groups
on campus would be likely to follow,"
Center Adopts
Seal For Ball
A newly-adopted official seal of
the University International Center
will comprise the center of decora-
tions for the annual International
Ball, which will be held Friday, April
17, in the Union Ballroom.
Designed ,by Zorack Organski,
Spec., and Thorarionn Reykdal, '44E,
the seal contains in the upper right
and lower left hand corners the Pil-
lars of Hercules, symbolizing the gate
of tolerance leading to true under-
standing of all peoples of the world.
The other two corners contain the
emblem of the rising sun, which
significes the rise of intelligence over
ignorance. This emblem was used
in the originalUniversity seal to
indicate the new sun in the inter -
national field. The motto of the
Center's new seal is "Above all na-
tions is humanity."
Proceeds from the International
Ball, one of the most colorful events
of the University year, will be do-
nated to the Emergency Fund for
Foreign Students. The ball is being
sponsored by the newly formed In-
ter-club Board of the International
Center. The board includes repre-
sentatives of all the clubs and cul-
tural interest groups meeting in the

Incoming organization officers in
the College of Engineering will have
their jobs made easier for them
through an Engineering Council d-
cision to sponsor a meeting of all
retiring presidents at which an at-
tempt will be made to anticipate con-
ing difficulties and suggest ways for
overcoming themn.
Scheduled to meet, at 5 p.m. Thurs-
day in the Union, the society offi-
cers will discuss the things with
which they have head to contend dur-
ing the past year, with n eye toward
helping their successols over thre
same bumps.
E~ngineering coallege sen ior (lass
president Ted Kennedy '4E, has re-
quested that general reports on the
functions and activities of each soci-
ety be presented at the meeting,
which is being arranged by George
Gotschall, '42E, and Jim Pierce, '43E
The reports are to be placed on file

sorority president Ann Herzog, '43,
declared yesterday.
The formal-main event of the
year for Kappa Kappa Gamma-is a
60-couple affair and usually requires
an orchestra costing over 50 dollars.
The house budget had allowed 63
dollars for a band this year, accord-
ing to Miss Herzog, and approxi-
mately ten dollars will be spent on
records for the dance. This will leave
over 50 dollars for Bomber-Scholar-
ships, she declared.
Although this sorority has always
employed an orchestra at its past
formals, the move to omit "live mu-
sic" received unanimous approval,
Miss Herzog asserted.
The sorority's national organiza-
tion has already been informed of the
plan and the donation will be made
during the first week of May before
the event is held.
Other contributions to the fund
hihve been received steadily but this
will be one of the first that actually
involves some sacrifice.
"The Bomber-Scholarship Fund is
not a charity," Art Rude, '42, chair-
man of the Bomber-Scholarship
Committee declared yesterday in
commenting on the sorority dona-
tion. "When non-combatant' stu-
dents equal the contribution of ex-
students now in service, it will have
achieved one of its main purposes,'
he declared.
All University Latin-American
students are invited to hear Latin-
American music at the Latin-
American ni-ht from 7:15 p.m. to
8:30 p.m. today in the Interna-
tional Center.
