cation in the university said:
"Patrons of the local school may
rest assured that the interests
of their children are properly

A Typical Habit Of American

Herbert Gray In Interview
Dr. A. Herbert Gray of Lon-
idon, eminent clergyman, states-
Hany people seem to wonder
why the United States Marine
Band, which is coming here Nov.
14, is so famous. Take a glance
j at some of these statistics and
you'll say, "No wonder the Ma
rine Band is so famous and so
good!" The United States Ma
rine Band carries on all its tours
over 2,000 pounds of instru
ments and music. .
There are 50 members in the
band on all trips ; each of these
men average 18 years of service
with the band.
Since all its members are en
listed, the Marine Band has to
practice two hours every day in
the year except Sundays.
Captain Branson has been a
member of the band since he
j -
was 17 years old.
In the 129 years of its exis
tence the band has had only nine
leaders.
The drummer, Wilbur Kieffer,
has been drumming for over 25
years.
The baggage of the band in
travel consists of 42 trunks; a
special baggage car accompanies
the band on all trips.
Mrs. Coolidge, hvan article on
"Social. Life at the White
House," in a recent issue of the
American Magazine, pays high
tribute to the Marine fiand as
the' chief item in the success of
any program at the White
House. 1
The Marine Band has played
at the inauguration of every
United States president from
Thomas Jefferson to Herbert
Hoover.
The Marine Band was lead by
Sousa for 12 years.
36,000 people attended the
Marine Band concert recently in
Kansas City. ,
In each city where? the band
has played on this ', tour, the
Mayor has declared an official
Marine Band Day, and the city's
main street was draped in Unit
ed States flags. .

"'Job's Kinf oiks' was first
written in the University play

draft was a failure, but all who
heard it at the author's reading
were impressed with the vivid
