Band Will Get Out Old Drum for Game

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Tomorrow, for the first time in nearly 30 years, the Harvard Band will not have the largest playable drum in the world at a University football game. It will have only the second largest.

The biggest drum, two inches higher than the one used for the Cornell game, is in Chicago, undergoing repairs for the Ohio game.

As a substitute, the Band will use its old drum, retired in 1955, which only seniors have seen. According to Kenneth H. Lang '58, band manager, the faithful instrument had not missed a game for 27 years until its retirement, but "is now in exceptionally good condition."
