One of the two drum-majors for
the marching band this'season will
be veteran performer Gordon Pat-
ton, better known as Champ, for
his championship roller-skating and
baton twirling performances.
Patton, along with Vic Walton, a
freshman, will lead the largest
band in the University's history,
this fall.
He has been twirling since he
was seven. His brother, the drum-
major at Michigan State College,
fostered Patton's interest in the
baton. Their mother attended his
brother's lessons, and together they
taught him the fundamentals of
baton twirling.
Studied With Dick Smith
Afterwards, Patton took ITssons
from Dick Smith, who was drum-
major at the University for the
three years preceding last year,
when Floyd Zarbach took over.
In his senior year at high school
Patton was drum-major. He said,
"If it weren't for Graham Young,
my band-leader there, I would
probably never have come to the
University." Young is an alumnus
of the University, and did all he
could to interest the young twirler
in coming here to school.
Patton thinks the band will be
even better this year than last -
"It's certainly bigger," he said.
He is anxious for the traditional
band rivalryat the Michigan-Mich-
igan State game. Concerning Army,
he noted, "We'll out-march them
and out-play them." Then he add-
ed, "But it won't be easy."
Keeps in Shape

keeps himself in good physical con-
dition by running when he is at
home. "Up here I don't have any
