'U' DRUM MAJOR STEPS HIGH IN FAME:
Interest in Twirling Family Tradition

By BECKY CONRAD
Holding 53 first-place medals, 13
r :trophies and the national baton-
twirling championship, the Uni-
versity's high stepping twirling
Drum Major Floyd Zarbock, '54A,
credits his 13 year old interest in
the baton to family tradition.
"My oldest sister once went to
a twirling exhibtion and came
home so enthusiastic about it that
she decided to learn the rudiments
of the art," he explained. "Her
marimba teacher just happened to
be able to twirl and so she began
lessons in the future family hob-
by. She still plays the marimba,
too," he said.

AND SINCE then, all the Zar-
bock children (three girls and two
boys) have copped nearly all the
His youngest sister, Naomi,
now holds the national major-
ette champion title and spent
Christmas, 1952 on an exhibi-
tion tour of Europe for the USO.
However, the Wheaton, Ill.
twirler no longer participates in
"I'm toying with the idea of
writing a book on the subject," he
said. Currently the twirling cham-
pion conducts "The Twirling
Workshop," a series of articles in
"The School Musician." "Maybe I
can organize these articles into
book form," he pointed out.

ZARBOCK emphasizes that ba-
ton-twirling is more of a science
than the layman thinks. Out on.
the field in front of a band, the
twirler may develop thousands of
combinations from the nine rudi-
ments. "It's really very simple to
learn," he explained, "Al you need
is a little inherent coordination
and lots of practice."
Zarbock himself is an accom-
plished artist in the fire twirl,
flag baton, gun and hoop spin
and use of two and three batons.
In his Wheaton high school, the
twirler spent two hours a day in
practice, since as with a music-
ian, if you don't practice every
day, you get stale."
According to his Phi Gamma
Delta fraternity brothers, he never
practices in the house, though. He
doesn't smoke or drink, and keeps
regular training hours.

Commenting that the local or-
