NO CAUSE FOR JOY:
Term Opening Regarded As
Headache by Revelli and Band
To many students, the opening of
a new term is a cause for pleasant an-
ticipation, but to the personnel of
the University Marching Band a new
term means a headache, in the con-
sidered opinion of the band's director,
Prof. William D. Revelli.
Organized into a complete unit for
the summer term, the break in semes-
ters has disrupted the personnel of
the marching unit, and with the loss
of 35 per cent of its musicians be-
tween terms, new members must be
secured and initiated into the intri-
cate system of formations that have
made the University Marching Band
one of the foremost in the nation.
Its first meeting of the fall term
held only last Tuesday, the band was
already functioning on the gridiron
yesterday. The popular reception it
received was due to the behind-the-
scenes activity that must precede
Every maneuver of the band is
carefully planned beforehand on a
miniature reproduction of the foot-
ball gridiron, with small figures rep-
resenting each man in the band. The
formations are staged by moving the
fgures on the model.
Split-second timing is the keynote
to the band's successful maneuvers.
Return of Colds
The cold season is back again and
with it the danger of the 'cold germ.'
Students are urged to take precau-
tions at the first sign of this common
affliction by checking with Health
Service. Hoarseness and congestion
in the chest should be watched, Dr.
Margaret Bell, physician at Health
Service, pointed out. If you don't
care about yourself, she said, at least
consider others with whom you come
in contact during classes.
Three cases of pneumonia have al-
ready been reported this semester.
The danger of glandular fever is
as great as ever, Dr. Bell said.
Difficulties of music performance,
dress and alignment are heightened
by the band's cadence, Prof. Revelli's
unit marching to a metronome speed
of 156, as compared to the usual band
cadence of 132.
Tryouts are still being held, Prof.
Revelli announced, and new men are
being placed in the ranks.

Service Merger, Free
Press Are Problems

Reports of a missing message said
by some senators to show that Japan
was going to fight the United States.
A hitherto secret survey that
showed high Navy officers at one
time were split about fifty-fifty on a
merger with the Army.
Ad this was going on, too, on a
day when neither Senate nor House
was open for business:
Required Free Press
A powerful group of House mem-
bers disclosed plans to tack onto
every bill for helping foreign coun-
tries a requirement for a "free press."
Republican members of a Senate-
House committee investigating the
Pearl Harbor disaster were said to be
on the hunt for that reportedly miss-
ing war message.
They want to find out whether this
report is true or untrue:
The Navy, before the Japanese
smash at Pearl Harbor, decoded a
Japanese message: "East winds, rain-

nalled enemy forces that the war was

That Army-Navy merger survey
counted noses 10 months ago. The
joint chiefs of staff polled 40 Army,
37 Navy and 3 Marine officers. Now
the study has been turned over to

which is considering a merger. It

officers favored a single department
of defense. So did the "great major-

But since the survey was made,I
some admirals, like Chester W.
Nimitz and William F. Halsey, have
changed their stand. Now the Navy
is battling a merger.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 3-All the signs in this jam-packed city today
pointed toward some stormy sessions when leaders of labor and business sit
down together next week for discussions which will chart the course of the
nation's future labor-management relations.
Representatives of both labor and business have professed publicly
their optimism over the results expected from the labor-management con-
ference opening tomorrow.
Pre-conference caucuses of management delegates disclosed that
most of them want the conference to go on record favoring the inclusion of

ods of minimizing labor strife.
