This change was made for two
reasons, one that in 1021 the Band
was equipped with a complete set
of Army band instruments, the other
that the band could be handled
through the military department. This
was n fortunate change for the dis
cipline of the band was still very lax.
Since coming under the supervision of
the military department Hint defect
has been remedied, and the band from
that time on has been a strictly dis

Sponsor System Inaugurated
In the Spring of 1921 the band in
stituted the system of sponsors, the
first one was Miss Margaret Smith,
who is now Mrs. Thomas F. Borden
In the Spring
of Goldsboro, N. C.
of 1922 Miss Smith was succeeded by
Miss Martha Pate, now Mrs. E. M.
Hcavrin, of Hartford, Ky. In 1924
Miss Pate wan succeeded by Miss Mar-ci- a
Lamport of Lexington. Up to this
time there had been no set term of
office, nnd a girl from any of the
four classes was eligible. This was
changed in the spring of 1D25, when
the candidates were limited to the
Sophomore and Junior classes, and
the term of service was set for one
year only, Miss Willy King of Lexington, held the honor for the first
time under this new ruling. Miss
King was succeeded by the present
sponsor, Miss Charlsoy Smith, of
Owcnton, Ky., in February.
First Drum Major
Concerning the Drum Majors, the
first of which we have any knowledge
was Mr. Dan R. Baugh of London,
Ky. He was succeeded in the spring
of 1922 by Mr. Raymond Kirk, who
is now with the Miami Herald of
Miami, Florida. In the fall of 1922
the job was passed to Mr. Ed. Ganz,
who was succeeded at the end of the

On September 15, 1920, Sgt. Jack
Kennedy was assigned to serve on
the military staff of the university,
and in 1921 he voluntarily started
helping Professor Lampert with the
band. In 1924 Sgt. Kennedy was given complete charge of the organization, and the excellent work he has
done in regard to the band is acknowledged by all.

again broadcast their inspiring music

they have expectations of mnking a
concert tour of three days through the
state. This, however, may not be
possible, due to a lack of funds.
