The impromptu concert was led by drum-major George F. Lowman '38, high-scoring forward of the crimson basketeers, and was witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd of house residents who thronged the court and hung out of windows.

Featured in the ebullient swingfest, which was furnished mostly by trumpets and clarinets, were an inspired drummer who performed on a wastebasket and a stick, and William G.
