The questionnaires contain the
names of 79 magazines, which
are divided into 16 classifications.
Students are asked to check one

ease. And figures show there
has been considerable progress.
In 1945, more than 4 per cent of
the 104,000 Nebraska birds tested
showed signs of pullorum dis
ease. Last year out of a half million
birds tested 1.17 per cent re
acted to the pullorum test.

the only musical organization of
its kind in the midwest; .there

very popular during the 16th
and 17th centuries. It was not
until the rise of the violin as an
artistic instrument that the brass
instruments ceased to be used
as an independent group.
The concert will show how
much brass instrumental music
has progressed since the days
when silver cornet bands played
almost exclusively marches with
perhaps a 'waltz or an operatic
