Marehng Band Conquers
New York at Army Game


'U' Club Instructs Students in Gliding

There was no score but the Uni-
versity Marching Band conquered
New York City with its half-time
show at the Army game.
The performance by the 135
blue and gold clad bandsmen drew
spontaneous cheering from the
67,000 fans. Spectators were so
awed that they rose to attention,
with their hats off, when.the band
played "God Bless America."
Its usual staid reporting to call
the "U" band "one of the finest
college musical organizations in
the country" and their perform-
ance unequalled at Yankee Sta-
Eastern sportswriters at the
game were so impressed when
the band came fast stepping-out
onto the field that "their jaws
dropped," according to Pres
Holmes, band program an-
The New York Herald Tribune
had this to say:
"Michigan showed up with an
incomparable band, whose preci-
sion marching was an ominous in-
dication of the results which West-
ern Conference coaching can ef-
fect. Even the cadets in the grand-
stand, who aren't exactly slobs at
bringing off a right-about-face,
hollored admiringly when the tuba
players made like the Rockettes,

danced like chorines, impersonated
a hansom in Central Park, pumped
water to relieve New York's drouth,
posed as the Statue of Liberty and
spelled out assorted words cor-
* *
MEMBERS of the band agreed
that they had an "on" day. "We
were impressed by playing in Yan-
kee Stadium and we clicked."
Michigan student spectators,
however, thought the band had
just put on its usual good per-
Prof. William D. Revelli, di-
rector of the band, felt highly
pleased with the spectator re-
ception and called it greater
that that at the Rose Bowl game
in '48.
The acoustics caused by the tri-
ple decks of the stadium gave the
band the odd experience of hear-
ing its own music.
"It was like playing in a tun-
nel," Prof. Revelli said. Drum Ma-
jor Dick Smith added that the
echoes made the band sound fif-
teen times its size.
But the biggest thrill of the day
fdr the bandsmen came after the
game. When they were marching
to their busses the spectators
walking in the streets 'outside the
stadium broke out into cheers and
loud applause.

Members of the University's
Soaring Club craned their necks
anxiously Sunday, as they watched
a careening glider attempt a land-
ing at the Washtenaw Airport.
A sudden up-draft of wind flung
the glider to a height of 450 feet,
and up with it went the Daily pho-
tographer who had bravely risked
his neck for a picture.
* * *
FORTUNATELY, the glider was,
skillfully landed and then met by
a throng of enthusiastic club mem-
bers. Their sport is a noiseless,
inexpensive, and-notwithstanding
Reid-safe sport.
"In contrast to power flight,
everything is perfectly quiet and
there are no worries about bills
for gasoline and oil," Jim Clark,
Grad, newly-elected president of
the club, said.
Since speed is not emphasized,
soaring is a very safe sport. It has
a very low record for accidents, ac-
cording to Clark.
* * *
THE PURPOSE of the Soaring
Club is to instruct student mem-
bers in the art of motorless flight,
maintain sailplanes, and partici-
pate in midwest and national cpm-
The club extends an invita-
tion to anyone who is interested
in joining, whether a licensed
pilot or not. The meetings will
be announced in the Daily Of-
ficial Bulletin.
The Soaring Club plans to par-
ticipate in meets as soon as its
members have become proficient
in the sport. To that end, an in-
structor has been provided to give
lessons to those members who do
not as yet have pilot's licenses.
THE GLIDER itself is construct-
ed basically like an airplane-mi-
nus motor, Clark commented.
Equipped with full flight in-
struments, it also- has an appa-
ratus for blind flying. Two pilots
may maneuver the small aero-
Differing from the airplane, the
glider has but one wheel in its
belly. It may be launched either by
car or, for higher altitudes, by a
plane, Clark explained.
LANDING, however, is a prob-
lem, because the pilot is not al-
ways able to direct the course of
his glider.
Glider competitions are judged
upon the basis of how long a pi-
lot can keep his glider up and
how close he can get to a pre-
desitined goal.
Newly-elected officers of the
club are: D. J. Mancuso, Grad,
vice-president; F. E. Dye Jr.,
Grad, secretary; and T. R. Cage,
'53, treasurer.
