With drum majorettes floating around the Stadium in droves Saturday afternoon, the University Band put on a snappy show both before the game and between the halves.
In the pre-game maneuvers Laurence H. Waterman '40 and Fred H. Krech '40, masquerading as contestants in the Gateway to Harvard competition, allowed themselves to be driven off the field by a "Jawn Harvard" brandishing an ancient blunderbuss.
Highlight of the Band's formations was a shield enclosing a "D", followed by letters of "Harvard" formed in rapid succession.
An unexpected situation arose when Miss Mildred Madigan of West Roxbury, a veteran baton twirler, attempted a coup d'etat between the halves. The 19 year old blond, trying to win a sorority bet by leading the Band, was prevented from getting on the field by Robert M. Peebles '40, manager.
