While strolling casually down
the main drag with a chic ahd a
young hep cat, we sudenly heard
taps being played to the accom
paniment of the popular ballad of
the day “Till Reville”. They were
played in a manner so clear and
distinctive, I shall never forget it.
To my surprise it was Von Richard
Trimble. Here is a lad, refined in
every respect, and plays trumpet
in the most artistic style ever
heard. Rather than say he is fol
lowing in the footsteps of Erskine
Hawkins.... I think it would be
more justifying to say he is follow
ing in the steps of Harry James
(The sweet and lovely style) To
prove to me and several others
that he really knows how to play
a sweet trumpet, he demonstrated
with “Righty Right”. To you
Von Richard I drink a toast, wish
ing you all the greatness of suc
cess known in our world of Music.
And as one of our friend I shall
endeavor to help you gain that sue

In a little town not far away a
farmer and his family are trying
to make a living by raising corn
The farmer is as busy as a little
bee, but no one can tell about the
farmer for he goes to bed early at
night and is an early riser. He
feeds the chickens and milks the
cows. Then he hurries to the
fields. He attends to his corn and
The cattle graze and grow and
the farmer and his family are hap
py in the little town. As each day
slowly sinks behind the hills.
Wind and rain comes and winter
follows summer and autumn and
the farmer rests through the long
Then comes spring and work
through the days with the cattle
and the corn.
