When the 555 gray-clad West

campus reception committee.

meet the cadets' train which ar-
ries at 10:45 is composed of
James Shortt, assistant to the di-
rector of university relations, Stan

Bleha, vice-president.:
From the station the cadets and
bandsmen will march to State
Street where they will divide in two
groups. These two groups will go
to South and West Quad where they
will be met by the quad councils.
After a lunch of roast beef, the
cadets will be guests of the resi-
dents of the two quads in their in-
dividuel rooms. This will give the
men an opportunity to freshen up
T after the long train ride and before
they go onto the game.

Freshman Leads Band

For the first time in its history,
the Marching Band has a fresh-
man as a drum-major, and two
drum majors leading them.
Vic Walton, a freshman, from
Hastings, will twirl for the pre-
game ceremonies Saturday while
Champ Patton will hold the honors
at half time.
Last year at the Michigan-Tulane
game 105 high-school bands were
guests of the University and a con-
test was held to select a drum-

Walton is naturally interested in
show business, since he comes
from a talented family.'His father
is a magician of professional cali-
ber, and his brother was a drum-
major in high school. "My brother
is really the one who got mefstart-
ed," said Walton, who has been
twirling since he was five.
The eighteen-year-old was a-
drum major for his entire four
years in high school. His instruc-
tor was George Walbridge, of Hol-
land. In 1950 Walton was the Unit-
ed States junior drum-major cham-
pion. He was a champion twirler
for four straight years at the Oli-
vet twirling festival.
"This is the most thrilling event
of my life," said the young drum-
major. "Until just a few days ago
a was not definitely sure that I
would have any part in the band
at all."
Walton will lead the largest band
in the University's history. He
thinks that this year's band will
also be one of the best.
Walton keeps in good physical
condition by exercising and long-
distance running. He added, "At
home, I had a regular schedule,
but here I just have to work it in at
odd times."
He said that he feels very much
indebted to the people of Hastings.
"They have always encouraged me
and backed me up in every pos-
sible way."
In all previous years, the band
has had only one drum major.
Last year, senior Floyd Zarbach,
winner of a nation-wide twirling
contest, held the position.

Rosh Hashono, the Jewish New
Year and Day of Judgement which
was Monday, began the Ten Days
of Penitence which end with Yom
Kippur, the Day of Atonement next
These days are devoted to re-
pentance and soul-searching.
For the first time this year Jew-
ish students at the University have
had the opportunity to attend sepa-
rate reform and conservative serv-
The Reform services were held
Monday night and yesterday morn-
ing in Rackham. Conservative
services took place Monday night,
yesterday morning and this morn-
ing in the Lydia Mendelssohn the-
Joint evening services for Yom
Kippur will be held at Rackham
Lecture Hall next Wednesday. Sep-
arate services will be held Thurs-
day, Oct. 7.
Associated with the holiday of
Rosh Hashono is the blowing of the
Shofar, the traditional ram's horn.
The Shofar was blown by Michael
Eiseman at the Reform services
and by Eden J. Jacobs at the Con-
servative services. The Shofar is
symbolic of Divine Majesty. As the
sound of the trumpet is associated
with a monarch's coronation, so the
sound of the Shofar proclaims the
Kingdom of Heaven.
The Shofar also symbolizes the
Revelation of the Ten Command-
ments to Moses on Mt. Sinai, and
the ingathering of exiles both of
which are in some way associated
with the blast of the ram's horn.
Above all the Shofar symbolizes
a call to repentance and a sum-
mons to the conscience to rededi-
cate itself.
Another custom of Rosh Hoshono
is the dipping of a piece of bread or
fruit into honey and wishing every-
one "a good and sweet year." The
act symbolizes the wish for sweet-
ness in the new year.
Repentance is the keynote of the
Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.
Graduate Mixer
Graduate students and Uni-
versity personnel are invited to
a graduate mixer to be held at
9 p.m. Friday in the Rackham
Assembly Hall. Admission will
be 35 cents.

One of the ways which repentance
can find expression on this day is
through fasting. Students observ-
ing Yom Kippur will abstain from
all forms of food and drink, includ-
ing water from sundown to sun-
The eight days of Sukkos will
begin Monday, Oct. 11. This holi-
day celebrates the belief that the
Lord is benevolent and good. It is
a holiday of Thanksgiving cele-
brated with the traditional palm
leaves and citron.
Jewish students plan to build a
tabernacle, a temporary building
covered by a leafy roof on the tet-
race of the Hillel Foundation. This
structure, which is a reminder of
the booths in which the Jews lived
in the dessert on the way to the
"promised land," is being con-
structed under the supervision of
Prof. Herbert Johe of the School
of Architecture and. Design.
