First Rehearsal Held
Friday Night Feb. 6th
Mr. Harry H. Straus To Back Venture
One Hundred Percent
There has been considerable dis
cussion during the past few months
concerning the organization of an
Ecusta Band. Many employees who
heard of the likelihood of such organ
ization came to the Recreation De
partment to voice opinions, give sug
gestions, and help in the general
round-up of interested employees.
The result of this procedure was so
encouraging that we are now in the
process of organizing an Ecusta band.
We had our first meeting Tuesday
evening, February second at 7:00.
Fourteen prospective band members
were present and discussion took
place as to convenient rehearsal hours,
free hours for special instruction
classes, instruments and players
available and the possibilities of work
ing in untrained members who are
interested in learning to play.’Because
of conflict with the vocational train
ing classes, rehearsals, for the present
will be called for Wednesday and
Friday evenings at 7:00 in the cafe
Mr. John Eversman, well-known
violinist and Director of Music in
the Asheville School for Boys, wiU
direct the organization and give in
struction to those members who wish
personal attention, the cost to be
carried in full by Ecusta Paper Cor
It is our hope that within three
month’s time an organization of some
merit may evolve from an earnest en
deavor to give Ecusta an organiza
tion of which to be proud. If at the
end of this time our hopes are ful
filled, we may feel free to state that
ample funds will be allowed the or
ganization with which to make great
er strides as time progresses.
Some individuals who are interest
ed in learning to play are, as yet,
without instruments but as time goes
on we hope to have instruments in
addition to those already in use. If you
are interested in becoming a band
member, attend our rehearsals. We
will help in every way possible.
Further details concerning this or
ganization may be obtained through
the Recreation Office.
