YHILE the quantity of Work, in presenting programs, of the octette
, has been lessened because of financial reasons, the quality of their
work has been greatly raised. The two quartets hare. together as the
octette, presented programs of a religious nature at Cl'lLl1'Cl1 programs and
have given numbers of a classical nature at school programs and entertain-
ments. Director Boyer is deserving of much praise for his splendid work
in directing the musical group and also in giving' the musicians and their
large group ot' admirers a better appreciation of really good music. The
entire organization is a splendid example of excellent musician-ship com-
bined with unity, and the college realizes that the octette is an outstand-
ing campus group.

Director MAX KRANING
T! HIRTY-TWO fellows filled with pep and music, with their director,
i Max Kraning, constitute the personnel of the Marching Band. De-
spite the fact that this was their first year of organization these men did
some remarkable pieces of work. The band played music full of spark-
ling zest at the college athletic events. A new feature at the games this
year was the interesting formations of the Marching Band, led by Drum
Major Kraning, during intermissions. During the congressional campaign
of Professor Schutz this band furnished music for the political rallies.
Many well known marches have been used by the organization, and, among
these, the works of John Philip Sousa have held a favorite place.

The Department of Music
"God sent His singers upon earth
With songs of gladness and of mirth
That they might touch the hearts of men
And bring them back to heaven againf
is well nigh impossible to view a cross - section of human activity,
'ff be it religious, social, educational, or daily toil, without discovering
musical influence. Few are the hearts that are not moved by the good and
beautiful in music.
In a day when we think of and heed social infiuences, socialized devel-
opments, and society itself, we are reminded that music, itseif, is a social
force. Music is useful and pleasant only when made by people and for
people. It is ultimately social.
Manchester College encourages musical activity as an avocation and
also as a profession. In the way of musical activities there are eight or-
ganizations sponsored by the college as Well as several individual enter-
prises. As pointed out on other pages of this volume, these eight groups
are College Men's Quartet, College Ladies Quartet, Madrigal Club, A Cap-
pella Choir, Orchestra, String Ensemble, Concert Band, and Marching
Interesting enough, these groups run perfectly in pairs. The Quartets
are directed by Mr. Boyer, the Madrigal Club and A Cappella Choir, groups
of the choral type, are under the direction of Mr. Halladay. The instru-
mental organizations are four in number. The Orchestra and String En-
semble are in charge of Mr. Arlington, and the Concert Band and the
Marching Band, a new-corner on the campus this year, are both conducted
by Max Kraning.
The total membership in these eight musical organizations is one hundred
and ninety-four, but many students participate in more than one group.
Excluding duplicates, there are one hundred and thirty-eight college men
and women enjoying the benefits of and contributing to the musical activ-
ities of Manchester College. This means that one out of every five in the
college has selected music for either a profession or an avocationg such a
record is surely commendable!
Director, Dept. of Music.
