the “Sound Experiment” from per

hit around here for a long time,”
said James McMullin, vocalist with
the group. “Just the fact that stu
dents, half of them not music ma

jure interest of music put on a
performance like the “experiment”
is enough incentive for more such
-programs. If I had the chance to
- participate in something like it
again, I’d jump at the chance.”
Fred Young did the ground work
'and emceed the program, and Gene
Zarones organized the group.
‘ “Marshall Wright, assistant
- graduate in the chemistry depart
jnent, did most of the work on it.
- He organized the music program,
- arranged rehearsals, and played
•the most beautiful tenor sax you've

-Clarinetist in the ensemble. “It was
tremendous. I d like to have a re
peat every other week.”
“About 150 persons attended,
and I talked to innumerable peo
ple who wanted to go but couldn’t
make it,” Bob Hays commented.
“It was very successful, and we
think two programs a year would
be well attended.”
Other participants were Carl
Gutmann, clarinet; Bill Fletcher,
drums; TIal Harden, bass; and
Arnold Martin, piano.
He was taking the pretty girl
out for a ride in his new car.
“Would you like to see where I
was vaccinated?” she asked.
“Why, yes,” he blurted.
“Well, look to the left—we pass
the hospital any minute now.”
