The ninth concert of the spimmerf
series on the Charles Baird Carillonl
will be presented Thursday night at
7 p.m., for the enjoyment of summer.
session students. Carillonneur Wil-
mot Pratt has arranged a program
that includes folk songs, hymns, a
rendition of "America," and a com-
position by Schubert.
The Carillon was donated by
Charles Baird, prominent alumnus
now living in Kansas City, Mo., and
is t he third largest in the world to-
day. It is housed in the Burton Me-
morial Tower. The Carillon itself
consists of 53 bells, weighing more
than 125,000 pounds, arranged in
chromatic sequence.
The largest of, these bells, the
Bourdon bell, weighs slightly over 12
toris and has the pitch of E-flat under
middle C. The smallest bell weighs 12
pounds and sounds the note of G-
sharp, four and one-half octaves
above the Bourdon bell.
The Burton Memorial Tower, built
by subscriptions of Ann Arbor citi-
zens and alumni of the University,
hbuses the Carillon in a chamber on
the 10th floor, 120 feet from the
ground. The bells are hung rigidly
on a steel frame more than 30 feet
high and 18 by 26 feet at the base.
According to experts, the Charles
Baird Carillon represents an advance
over previous installations, and each
bell has been tuned accurately, un-
like the bells of olden days, when it
was mere accident when the tones of
similar bells were'full, mellow, and
rich.
There is a great deal of discussion
concerning where the best place to
hear the Carillon is. When it was
first u n d e r construction, many
thought it could be heard from great
distances. However, this is impossi-
)le, because the volume of sound ema-
nating from rigidly-hung bells is con-
siderably less than that from swing-
ing bells.
The four largest bells are located in
the first tier at each of the corners of
the steel frame, the Bourdon bell
hanging at the southwest corner.
In a church bell, the clapper swings
from a central pivot in the head of

the bell and strikes eithr lip of the
bell with full force. In the carillon
bell, the clapper is held in a position
very close to the point of impact and
is brought into contact with the bell
by the pressure of the carillonneur's
hand or foot upon the keys or pedals
of the clavier, which transmit this+
stroke to the clapper by means of
wires. It is not possible or desirable
to create the volume of sound in a
carillon bell that can be produced by
an ordinary church bell.
However, the listener to the con-
cert should more or less determine
where he himself can hear the bells
most satisfactorily. In general, he
should not be too close to the bell, for
then the mechanical sounds and
"strike" tones will be too prominent
and unpleasing. On the other hand,
if the listener is too far away, the
rapidly dissolving sounds of the
smaller bells will be lost, and only
the "boom" of the larger bells will
be heard. The listening post should
also be chosen where both high and
low notes can be heard.
The public can probably best hear
the Carillon concert Thursday night
on the lawn of the Michigan League,
or in Felch Park.
