The University of Kentucky band
has scored again! Professor Sulzer
and his Blue and White musicians created no less than a sensation when
they journeyed down to 'Bama last
Saturday. The band arrived in Birmingham at noon and paraded to
field soon afterwar.
The game started at 1 o'clock,
ahead of schedule time, but the band
members soon made up for their delay after they arrived. Taking their
seats in the stadium, they played for
the some 7,000 football fanaall during
the first half. Then falling into formation with their sponsor. Miss

bouquet of flowers on her arm, they
marched to the center of the field.
Splitting there, the band whipped into
columns until it formed a large "A."
The spectators knew the plan before
it was executed, and filled the air
with cheers and general acclaim.

worthy idea of treating the spectators
