SYMPOSIUM OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN MUSIC. The Sixth Annual. Symposium of Contemporary American Music was held on the KU campus during April 26-28. Supported by the University of Kansas of Association and through funds granted by the Music Per- formance Trust Funds of the Recording Industries, R. Rosenbaum, Trustee, this note- worthy annual event was begun in 1949. It is one of the few concentrated efforts being made anywhere in the country to bring together serious composers to listen to their own and to each other ' s works, to discuss composition techniques, and to benefit from an association with one of America ' s most prominent composers. Vladimir Ussachevsky, professor of music at Columbia University, and one of the principal participants in the Columbia–Princeton Electronic Music Center, was guest composer for this year ' s symposium. One of America ' s most distinguished conductors, Guy Fraser Harrison, con- ductor of the Oklahoma City Symphony and widely known for his work with American Music, served as guest conductor for the event. The symposium is divided into three major divisions: chamber works, choral works, and or- chestral works. Performances of solo and chamber works are given by KU faculty members, the chorale compositions and sung by the University ' s chamber choir and chorale, and the orchestral compositions are played by an orchestra consisting of faculty, students, and members of the Kansas City Philharmonic. Since 1959, more than 1200 unpublished compositions have been screened by the symposium committee, resulting in the performance, including many world pre- mieres, of more than 180 works. 1•111WIT: ' T54

As always, the KU Relays brought a weekend of color and pageantry to the University of Kansas. Bands, floats, queens, dances, and many fine athletes paid homage to the Olympic year. Begin- ning with a downtown parade on Saturday morning, in which the float built by Joseph R. Pearson Hall and Sigma Kappa (below) won the float competition, the scene later shifted to Memorial Stadium where the Relays took place and Miss Joan McGregor ( center below) was crowned Queen of the 1964 Kansas Relays. Her attendants were Miss Judy Railsback (left) and Miss Sandy Kaiser (right).

PEOPLE When the creative mind of the editor fails, after days of intense concentration, to come up with something which will give to the public a s ignificant glimpse of life at the University of Kansas, and when all pictures of the Memorial Campanile have either been lost or destroyed by an irate art director, the burden of responsibility is neatly packaged in two small rolls of film and handed to those paragons of talent and imagination, the
