AIR FORCE JET BOMBER WRECKAGE FATAL TO TWO-This is the smouldering wreckage of
an Air Force jet bomber, the B-45, after it exploded in the air and crashed near Tulare, Calif.
Two civilian test pilots were killed. The B-45, made by North American Aviation, is the Air Force's
first all-jet bomber and is about the size of a Flying Fortress. Spectator examines rubble.
SOME CHANGES MADE:
Band To March in New Formation
The University Marching Band
will trot out with something new
and revolutionary this Saturday.
A re-arrangement of instru-
mentation which will virtually
transform the Band into two six-
ty-piece units, will be used when
the band makes its first appear-
ance at the Michigan State game.
JACK LEE, new assistant direc-
tor working with Prof. William D.
Revelli, conductor of University
bands, devised the new formation.
Bands usually group instru-
ments of the same type into one
section with the
ing up the rear.
The new arrangement features
the rhythm section-consisting of
drums, alto and bass horns-in
the center position. The trom-
bones, previously massed in one
row, will be divided between the
front and back rows.
Other instruments will receive
the same treatment with the clari-
,nets distributed along the edges of
the entire unit.
A CUT IN the clarinet section
from 40 to 20 instruments com-
prises the major change. Other
sections will be increased propor-
Besides the East Lansing ap-
pearance, the band will make
two other road trips, one to the
Purdue game Oct. 9, the other
to the Minnesota game, Oct. 25.
Student officers of the band,
which added only 39 new mem-
bers this year, are Glenn Yarberry
of Pueblo, Col., manager; Donald
Lupp of Gregory, Mich., equip-
ment manager; Ray Keith of
River Rouge, Mich., library; and
Al Taylor of Joliet, Ill., publicity
Fred Breidenbach of Dayton,
Ohio, is the drum major.
