RETIRING DRUM MAJOR MAY SELECT FEMININE SUCCESSOR

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The sex of applicants will play no part in the choice of a successor, announced Theodore L. Sendak '40, retiring drum major, for he is willing to instruct even a Radcliffe student in the art of baton-wielding.

Sendak stated, "Anyone can learn the tricks in a couple of hours, including throwing the baton over the goal post, but it does take a great deal of practice." Whoever wins the position will inherit a jinx, for every twirler in the past four years has dropped his stick in the Princeton game.

Applications for the position will be received by Sendak in Eliot H-11. Practice sessions lasting a couple of hours a week will be held for the candidates, the most versatile being chosen to the post of drum major or majorette, as the case may be. Endless tricks are possible with the baton, such as cartwheels and triple flips.
