seems to have been lost in the haze of talk
about finances, chaperones, the band's attitude,
University sanction and other such problems that
arise with semi-official functions.
It looks like the majority of University stu

In regard to the very normal student desire to

on the plains of Kansas.
The trip to Colorado on the migration train
or by car will cost more. The difficulties of
chaperoning will become greater on the Color

the fact that the University Marching Band will
not go to Kansas and is already through the
necessary red tape to make possible its migration

Those were the first words
which entered my mind upon
