ior high chorus by Miss Sanders.
One day Mr. Btegeman said that the band of trumpeters was to
give a benefit concert at the Adams High School auditorium. And
the proceeds of the concert were to be used for uniforms for the
members. He said, WWe will do what no one else has ever done be-
fore, we will do what no one else ever thought of doing, We will
go down into the auditorium and give this great concert."
When the trumpeters came that evening, they played upon their
instruments as they had never played before, They proceeded, they
played such selections as the 'Merry Swiss Boy," "The Golden
Bears," and "Little Gypsy."
They played the deepest tones and sweetest melodies. All
would play the"Sp1rit of the Sioux" and "The Fighting Irish." And
in this great band of trumpetelvs there were forty
enthusiastic members. On and on through the days
the mihstrels went. And as they went, the members Lygmf
of the mixed chorus were filled with the Christ- .

As they went along, the trumpeters played upon their instru-
ments regularly. With their hand and their heads they showed that
they were inspired to practice long and hard for a great concert
to be given on one of the beautiful days in May.
They came at last to the auditorium and the spectators heard
soft music. It grew louder and louder. Before them they saw many
members in new uniforms of purple and gold and shining instru-
ments strapped to them.
