Music Hath Charm? Cantab Coppers Can't Quite Concur
What? You never heard this one: "Ya can't tell one hall from another without a scorecard?" Well, the College band proved it last night.
Scheduled to play for a party at Hunt Hall at 7 o'clock, 50 stalwart musicians mistook the place, landed instead on the copious stops of Memorial Hall, and began to tune up for the party. Though small boys, curious cats, and musically-minded dogs approved, a delegation of doctors across the way at Sanders Theatre in a tradition bound convention did not. Call the police, they exclaimed as one. And so it came to pass.
It was a long battle, but the argument of the director of the band prevailed. Yes, the police said, he could have his wandering minstrels back. But it wasn't without a fight.
Proposed charges: playing after dark, disturbing the peace, and inciting to riot.
