The music will be unquestionably
good, but it will be a band with a
heritage almost as interesting as its
music which will take the stage Tues-
day when the University Concert
Band presents its annual Spring Con-
cert in Hill Auditorium.
When the Associated Press voted
the band "All-American" last year, it
wasn't just an honorary title, for
there are no less then 17 states rep-
resented in the band, some members
coming from as far as Texas, Wyo-
ming and even Hawaii.
It is probabl that the band has

visited almost all the states repre-
sented, too, as during the past five
years the Michigan Bands have tra-
veled an estimated 15,000 miles, in-
cluding trips to Harvard, Pennsyl-
vania, Yale and Minnesota.
On each shorter trip the band
takes a truckload of equipment and
a staff of six men to accompany it,
while long trips make it necessary to
comandeer an entire baggage car.
Several thousand dollars have baen
invested by the University in band
Proof that music still provides an
enjoyable and enlightening avocation

career, almost half of the band mem-
bership is drawn from colleges of the

warden is Mary Barnes, dietitian for
the Quadrangle.
The resident adviser for each in-
dividual house is the personnel war-
den for that house] In addition assis-
tant wardens, group wardens and
morale and first aid wardens have
been appointed.
Eighty residence halls staff mem-
bers and student officers are en-
rolled in official Red Cross first aid
courses. These courses are being con-
ducted by two residence hall officials:
Dr. Homer Howes and Dr. J. Brown
Farrior, resident advisers for Tyler
and Wenley ho'uses, respectively.
Mimeographed sheets with complete
instructions for action in the event
of an air raid will be distributed to
the students and to the appointed
protection officials.
Uniform instructions for blackouts
in each unit have also been given. All
the steps to be taken in the actual
blacking out of a building and in the
reverse process for restoring light af-
ter an all-clear signal have been
clearly indicated.
Precautions against fire and incen-
diary bombs are well underway in all
buildings. Steel drums containing
sand have been placed either in the
attics or upper floors of the houses
and pails have been provided for
handling the sand or for incendiary
bomb receptacles. Other fire fight-
ing equipment such as rakes, long
handled shovels and water hose will
be added as soon as it is available,
War Courses
Will Be Given
Defense Training To Start
In Seven Municipalities
"Education for victory" might well
be the slogan when 34 Engineering,
Science and Management Defense
Training courses, designed to train
men for key positions in war indus-
tries, get under way Monday, Tues-

Detroit, three in Ann Arbor, two in
Flint and one each in Dearborn,
Grand Rapids and Jackson.
Already completed are four other
such programs, two of which have
been run off since the beginning of
the current school year. More than
1,800 men have been trained in these
two series, and it is expected that en-
rollment in the new series will be
approximately 900.
Also under the ESMDT program is
a University credited course in Ultra-
High Frequency Techniques, being
given to electrical engineering seniors
and graduate students by Prof. L. N.
Holland of the electrical engineering
dMeanwhile 75 men were graduated
from another ESMDT course in Ord-
nance Materials Inspection last

still in progress.
Group Of Experts
To Conduct Meeting
On Spectroanalysis
More than 100 experts from in-
dustry and universities will discuss
recent developments in spectrochem-
ical techniques at the third annual
Midwest Conference on Spectro-
chemical Analysis to be held here all
day today.
From 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. illus-

trated talks on absorption spectra,
photoelectric filter photometers,
spectrochemical analysis of stainless

in the Rackham Amphitheatre.
The group will then sojourn to the
Randall Laboratory of physics where
demonstrations and exhibits of com-
parators, the electron microscope, the
cyclotron and other equipment will
be shown until 5:30 p.m.

Ranked with the best in the coun-
try, the Concert Band, under the di-
rection of Prof. William D. Revelli,
has been declared outstanding for its
accurate intonation and rich tone
quality by such eminent musicians
as Dr. Edwin Franko Goldman, Mor-
ton Gould, Ferde Grofe and Roy Har-
It will be such a band which will
appear in the free concert Tuesday to,
present a full program of music both
by the older so-called 'classical'
composers and that of the contempo-
rary writers.
Featured on the program will be
the appearance of pianist Johana
Harris as guest soloist for the world
premiere of her husband Roy Harris's
latest composition, "Concerto for Pi-
