DRAFT BAND FORMATION: Twelve formations representing the months of the year will be presented by the University Marching Band in pre-game and half-time performances at the Rose Bowl on New Year's day. In the above picture band director William D. Revelli, assistant director Harold Ferguson and staff, map out a robin formation which may represent the month of May. Formations are worked out with toy soldiers on a miniature gridiron in Harris Hall, and mimeographed copies of the diagrams, with a number for each bandsman corresponding to a number of a toy soldier, are given to the players to facilitate practice at Ferry Field. Left to right in the above picture are George Lotzenhiser of the formation committee, Noah Kneeper, drum major, Ferguson, Revelli, and Don Autore of the formation committee. Pre-game performance will include a precision drill and grandiose.
