Mus/c School's Janitor, Sam Barger, Is Tradition
By carol l dy
“Why, I've been up here at the
Music School since before you were
even a twinkle in your Dad's eye,”
said Sam.
As Music School janitor, Sam
will celebrate his 25th anniversary
this coming October. Barger is
his last name, but few music stu
dents have heard it. He is just Sam
to them .
Perhaps a new music building
would have been a necessity long
ago, or maybe the old one would
not be standing quite so straight
if Sam had not been there. Many
are the times he has “gently but
firmly” reproved students for
doodling on pianos or tracing lines
on the wall. Pencils are as bad as
termites, in Sam’s opinion.
Illini Appoint Zologist
Dr. Charles A. Reed, instructor
in zoology at the University o
Oregon in 1937, has been appointed
assistant professor of zoology at
the University of Illinois College
of Pharmacy.
Jack Morton, former student
here, is teaching sixth grade at
Newberg Junior High School this
A graduate doctor tells of the
time he had his foot in an audi
torium chair and Sam told him
chairs were for scats, not feet. He
has a nice way of telling you. but
you don't do it again, the doctor
Sam sits in the orchestra pit and
takes care of light, heat, and other
duties at recitals and concerts. In
his 25 years of work he has never
been late to a recital or concert.
Few people get a better bird’s
eye view of backstage happenings
than does Sam. When the organ,
sticks or students lose their voices
at critical moments Sam won't
tell on them.
“After all they're a pretty good
bunch,'' he says. They say he rates
pretty highly too.
