Unusual Past Claimed for Bells, Carillonneur

Music Fraternity To Give Program

By BARBARA HECHT
Bells from Burton Tower chim-
ing out Christmas carols and her-.
aldingin the season spirit, remind
us of a generous gift made to this
University.
The Baird Carillon is the gift of
Charles Baird, of the class '92. In
1936 the gift was installed in the
bellchamber of the Burton Memor-
ial Tower. '
Fifty-three bells comprise the
carillon, which was cast and tuned
by the John Taylor Company at
Loughborough, England in 1936.
The weight of the largest bell, a
d-sharp bell, is 24,300 pounds. Its
diameter is 8 feet, 8 inches.
Bells Connect to Keyboard
All the bells hang on one steel
frame. Their clappers are con-
nected by wires to a "baton" key-
board, which is in a cabon on the
floor of the bellchamber. This
keyboard has a large wooden key
for each bell.
In addition, a pedal for each of
the 30 deepest-toned bells pro-
in silver and ivory to mahogany
sounding them.
The keys are lowered with the
fist, while the pedals are lowered
with theĀ°ball of the foot. Both
fast runs and chords may be
played and considerable dynamic
variation can be achieved.
Bell Ringer Instructs Classes
Using these principles, Percival
Price, the University carillonneur
and instructor, makes it possible
for us to enjoy to an even greater
extent, the season's festivities.

In addition. Prof. Price is the
Professor of Companology in the
School of Music. Companology is
the study of bells.
Although born in Canada, he
received his musical training in
North America and in Europe. In
1927 he obtained the diploma of
the Beiaardschool te Mecheleu,
becoming the first American grad-
uate of what was then the only
carillon school in the world.
Wins Pulitzer Prize
The Pulitzer Prize in musical
composition was awarded to him
in 1934.
Prof. Price has been invited to
give carillon recitals on many car-
illons in the United States, Can-
ada, Belgium, Holland, France,
England, Scotland, Germany, Den-
mark, Austria and Israel. He has
composed extensively for the
carillon and has written books
and articles on campanological
subjects.
In addition, he has been invited' -..
to join several international com-
mittees on bells. f
ISA Debate
"Europe, Doesn't Matter Any
More?" will be discussed by
students from Pakistan, Egypt,
Israel and the United States at
