the tive home games with St. Augustines. Hobart, Muskegon, Grand Haven, and St, joseph. They
entlnisiastically sold candy, pop, and hot dogs on all these occasions. The installation of a new
score hoard in the gymnasium and the purchase of new suits for the cheerleaders are the club's
special achievements for the season.
As usual, they gave the annual football banquet in honor of the team, at Sonner Hall in the

B. H. H. S. BOYS' BAND
The High School Boys' Band started the school year by playing for all the home games
except two. At the St. joe game the boys' and girls' bands united and formed a mass band of
150 pieces. This year the band had a membership of eighty boys.
In the middle of the football season Mr. Schlabach was called away. While he was gone
George Walbridge practically took care of the band and worked out a drill himself. At a baton
twirling contest in Lansing in january, George tied for first place. The band gave its annual con-
cert on March twenty-fourth.
Before school was out last spring seven soloists from the band went to Ann Arbor to par-
ticipate in a music rating contest. Five superior ratings were awarded Benton Harbor contestants.
Mr. Schlabach again conducted a summer band composed of both boys and girls. In August
the summer band went to the Chicagoland Music Festival and won fourth place.
Last spring the band went to the Holland Tulip Festival, and, as usual, also took part in
the Blossom Week activities. The band also played at the commencement exercises held in Fil-
strup Field. For a number of reasons the band did not participate in the Holland Tulip Festival
this year. '
The band officers this year are as follows: President, Waldemar Firehammerg Vice-president,
Robert Albrecht, Sec'y-Treas., Bill Gridley, Business Manager, Edward Troiferg Librarians, Bill

This year was Mr. Suppiger's first in Benton Harbor. His home was originally in St. Louis,
Missouri, where he played clarinet and saxophone with the St. Louis Theatre Orchestra for a num-
ber of years. He received his musical training at Illinois Wesleyan University at Bloomington,
Illinois, and after his graduation he taught there. Prior to his coming to Benton Harbor, Mr.
Suppiger taught harmony and band for a year at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. While at
Grinnell' he played a clarinet concert by Mozart with the college orchestra, the orchestration of
which was his own arrangement. The Girls' Band concert here included many arrangements by him.
The band played for one football game last fall, the Hobart game. Last summer it went to
Chicago to the International convention of Lions Clubs and placed high in competition. Benton
Harbor's was the only all-girls' band at the convention. The membership this year included

B. H. H. S. ORCHESTRA
The High School Orchestra was one of the busiest organizations in school this year. In
january it traveled to South Haven to give an exchange program, and later in the year it went to
St. Joseph to give another exchange program. The orchestra gave its annual concert in May. For the
last three years it had given its concert during Blossom Week and had made it free to the public.
This year, however, because of other musical conflicts, the orchestra gave its concert independent of
One of the orchestra's most important activities this year was its participation in the annual
Fall Music Festival. The orchestra and the boys' and girls' glee clubs presented a cantata entitled
the "Son of Man" directed by Miss Congdon. In addition to the cantata the orchestra played two
selections, "The Procession of the Sardar," and the "Dream Pantomime" from "Hansel and Gretel."
