Ehz- abeth Lambert at the organ. They were assisted by Misses Margia Bur den, soprano; Hattie Gray, soprano; and Robert Hailes, tenor.

Miss Burden sang, God Give Me Mountains” by Rasbach and C ouds by Charles, Miss Grey sang Solvejgs Song (“Peer Gynt Suite”) by Grieg, “The Lord’s Prayer” by Malotte. Bot i were accompanied by Miss Johnson. “O No John”, an English folk song, was by Miss Gray and Mr. Robert Hailes. , Accompanied by Miss Lambert, Miss Gray and Mr. Hailes sang, “Come, Come I Love You Only. Kern’s Show Boat Medley, played by Misses Johnson and Lambert, con cluded the program. The College Band closed a succec- year with the presentation of the fourth annual concert on May 15. The program included a wide rangs of selections which carried audience appeal. While holding to the tradi tional method of band presentation, the group rendered popular and Hght class numbers. Though graduation and the armed service had taken a number of our key players, the director had mads shifts to bridge the gap. Alfred Mar- bley, former alto saxophone player was shifted to B flat sousaphone; Wil liam Jefferson from B-flat trumpet to baritone horn, and Nancy Gary from snare drum to bell lyre. A new sec tion, the B flat mellophone, with Lu cinda Busch, Repsie Warren and Ge neva Cogdell, won great applause. This performance was the last for certain pioneer members, including Lucy Dixon, WilHam Jefferson, James Wilkes and Bennie Wilhams. Durham, N. H.—(I.P.) —An exten sive campaign is underway on the campus of the University of New Hampshire campus. Every member of the Senior Class as the prelude in putting into effect a reunion gift plan which woidd bring over $30,000 to the University on the occasion of the Class’ 25th reunion in 1977. Endorsed recently by Senior Class Officers, the gift plan would have each member of the Class of ’52 buying a life in surance pohcy for $1,000 and making the beneficiary of that pohcy whom ever he chooses. The $100 individual reunion gift will come from the earn ings of the policy so that the gift will actually cost nothing and will earn I additional profit. 1951 GRADUATES HOLD GOOD POSITIONS According to information received from Dean W.
