BANDS TAKE HONORS AT NATIONAL CONTEST
A fitting climax to a successful musical year was afforded Saturday, May 21, when both the
Boys' and the Girls' Bands received first division championships at the National High School Band
contest at Elkhart. The first division rating classes both bands as National Regional Drilling
The Class A marching contest in which both hands were entered required that all contestants
perform a specified set of rudiments, consisting of such movements as: countermarches, left and
right obliques, column lefts and column rights, diminished and increased fronts, and various other
types of maneuvers. Wliile this restriction made the contest a trifie less spectacular by eliminating
the majority of the usual letter and figure formations, it proved to be even more interesting to both
spectator and contestant because of the increased difiiculty of the performance.
ln addition to the required movements, the bands were allowed so much time and credit for
special drills. ln this field the Girls' Band formed revolving cogwheels and two Giant letters:
"B-H". The Boys' Band made a large sunrise formation and while standing played, "The Wtmrld
is Walitiiig for the Sunrise".
Proof of the bands earning their awards was found plentifully on the comment sheets of
the judges in which were listed the good and bad criticisms of the band being judged. It is inter-
esting to note that each band was unanimously recommended for first division by all three judges.
At the close of the judging, both Benton Harbor bands returned to the field and put on a
combined drill in honor of Elkhart consisting of the letters "E-L-K" formed by the girls surrounded
by a large heart outline by the boys. The Benton Harbor victory was made complete through the
taking of first division in the twirling contest by George Walbridge, the Boys' Band drum major.
Both bands will receive plaques and individual gold medals properly inscribed.
