THE MICHIGAN DAILY
TWIRLER, ACCOUNTANT TOO:
Dick Smith Takes the Field
AM', OSU Bands To Take;
Field at Half-time Today
* * * -
By GAYLE GREENE
Although it wasn't intentionally
Y planned that way the highstepp-
ing drum major who will lead the
band on to the football field to-
day, is maize and blue from top
In keeping with the spirit of his
snappy maize breeches, dark blue
tails and leather leggings (to rep-
resent boots but much more com-
fortable),are Dick Smith's bright
blue eyes, slicked back blond hair
and the occasional blue tinge
which colors his lips on an es-
pecially cold afternoon.
"THIS IS Shakel white rabbit
fur-genuine," he explained point-
ing to the tall hat fastened with
a strap under his chin. "And I
suppose you'd call this a musical
'M' " he added, indicating the sat-
in letter on his navy blue felt
breastplate. "I don't know what
a musical 'M' is like, but it sounds
good," he explained.
"My uniform is almost all wool
and it keeps me pretty warm,"
the junior from Werton, West
Virginia said, shivering. "I'm
not cold at all, at least, not
when I'm on the field."
"Besides, I'm used to trotting
around a football field on cold
days. I was a twirler here for a
year before I became drum major
two years ago and I did the same
thing back home at Werton High."
"AS FAR AS I'm concerned
there could never be anything like
'too much football' or 'too much
band', Smith said emphatically.
"I guess I get as big a kick out
of bands and football as anyone
;could," he added.
"Speaking of football, I'm al-
most as much in training as one
of the team. I don't Grmm or
smoke and on the night before
the game I go to bed early. Then
of course I rehearse an hour and
a half with the band and for
about two hours by myself over
at Ferry Field."
"It's funny how when you line
up right before you go on the field,
you forget about the people. I
think to myself 'Let's do a good
job, and give it everything." As
for after he graduates Smith says:
"Well, I suppose I'll spend a cou-
ple of years in the service, I'm in
the Air Force ROTC here. I'd
kind of like to be in an army
band," he admitted. Then I'll do
'some kind of accounting.

HE MAY BE Dick Smith, drum
'major, on the field every Saturday,
but he's not Dick Smith, drum
major, around the house every
day, according to his fraternity
brothers at the Kappa Sigma
"He doesn't have too many
peculiarities, one of the men
said. "At least he doesn't sleep
with his shoes on, if that's what
A long standing rivalry between
the Michigan and Ohio State
marching bands will come to the
fore when each group takes the
field at the Michigan-Ohio State
football fray today.
Today's exhibition will be the
first in which two bands have been

And still worse, "we had no play-
ing cards, no radio, no nothing to
keep us entertained, except may-
be our pet dog."

One thing did impress the De-
troiter: the fishermen of the Mis-
sissippi region take great pride in
the number of human bodies they
have fished out of the river.
The explanation: County coron-
ers pay from $10 to $15 per body-
stimulating a lucrative trade.
Finally, the heavy-set Brown
disclosed that the next edition of
Collier's magazine will be coming
out with a report, with pictures,
on the raft adventure.
He plans to return to the Uni-
versity in February to resume his
studies and will reside at the Chi
Phi house with the same fratern-
ity brothers who never thought he

Representative music from some
of the well-known Broadway pro-
ductions will be the basis of Michi-
gan's half-time pageant "Show
Boat," according to William D.
After the Ohio State band leaves
the field, Michigan will open their
half of the display with "There's
No Business Like Show Business."
Following this the band will form
a steamboat and "float" down the
field to the strains of Jerome
Kern's "Old Man River."
A bow and arrow will then be
formed to the tune of "Waitin'
for the Robert E. Lee." As the
band breaks into "Indian Love
Call" the arrow will be pulled back
and shot down the field, only to
reverse itself, move back up the
field, and pierce a heart.
Next the band will convert to a
gigantic soldier, covering the en-
tire width of the field, and parade
to a rendition of "This Is The Ar-
my, Mr. Jones.".
After a snappy about-face the
band will give its impression of
Cole Porter's 'Begin the Beguine"
while dancing its way up the field.
Climaxing the band's last per-
formance of the season will be a
colorful company drill to the ac-
companiment of "Varsity."
The band's pre-game perform-
ance will include "The Victors," a
salute to Ohio State with "Buck-
eye Battle Cry," "Colossus of Co-
lumbia" and "The Star Spangled

study hours, doesn't goof-off
and sometimes eats crackers and
cheese before he goes to bed--
but then a lot of people do."
Although Smith seemed hesitant
about discussing his accomplish-
ments, Prof. William D. Revelli
director of the Marching Band
was less reticent.
"Dick may not have told you
this," he said yesterday, "but, be-
sides leading the band, he twirls,
assists in conducting and leading
drills and also plays clarinet in
the Symphony orchestra."
"So many drum majors know
nothing at all about music. Dick,
however, because of his musical
knowledge can quickly spot in-
accuracies in performance and
rhythm as well as direct the for-
mation on the field," Prof. Re-
"He has all the attributes of a
good drum major-poise, person-
ality and the kind of dignity that
earns the respect of his men,"
Prof. Revelli continued, "and in
my opinion, is one of the nation's
outstanding drum majors."
The Arts Theatre Club announ-
ced yesterday that three addition-
al performances of "The Knight of
the Burning Pestle" will be given
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
of next week.
The arrangement has been made
to accommodate members and

Despite the infringement on his
weekend time, Theurer thoroughly
enjoys the hours spent in the box
on the second deck center of the
Press Box. "It's an extremely in-
teresting hobby," he explained.
"IN RADIO announcing, you can
make a mistake; no one is seeing
what's happening and they have
to rely on your word. I havb to be
right. There are some real football
experts in the stands," he pointed
Theurer maintains this "right-
ness" with the aid of three as-
sistants. From his vantage point,
he watches the ball carrier while
an observer, his son Richard,
spots the tackles.
Two assistants on the field catch
penalties which they radio to the

eliminates confusion over the re-
ferees' signals. In turn, Theurer
