NEW TYPE SHOW RULED BY INSTRUMENTALISTS

Dearth of Instruments Means Change To Concert "Similar to Fred Waring Presentation" Next Year

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Due to dearth of instruments in College, particularly banjos and mandolins, the Instrumental Clubs have decreed major changes for next year's show.

From sessions of the nine undergraduate officers and 12 members of the Graduate Committee come pans for a new type of entertainment, "similar to a Fred Waring stage presentation." The emphasis will fall on original arrangements of Harvard songs and familiar semi-classical music for the Vocal Club, some to be sung with the God Coast Orchestra division. Opportunity awaits several good soloists.

Last night's release "expects" Bayard S. Clark '40 to be master of ceremonies, coordinating and working in specialists, among others, impersonators, a rope spinner, a "swing" trio, a banjo soloist, an octet, and any additional talent scouted among the Class of 1942. The show will be on the singe continually, save for one intermision, during a period of 90 minutes.

Concerts at Providence, Worcester, and Cambridge, a two-concert New York weekend, and presentations at several women's colleges will probably comprise the fall schedule.

After Christmas, 36 members of the Clubs tentatively take a five-day vacation trip as far west as Milwaukee.
