Notable among the sections are the E flat | Alto group, which are commonly j known as the "pecks." There Is a queer but true story conected with 'these boys. At tho beginning of the year only one regular alto player reported for the first rchaersal. gome- thing had to be done. ' Mr. Biles, the director, looked over his band. He picked three men to go with the one "horn" player he had. Each of these boys were picked from a different section, one played solo trumpet, an- cther tenor saxophone, and the other baritone. Now this section is one of the best m (he band and can hold its own with any similar section in the state. i Besides being specialists in their respective groups many at the members are quite versatile. Two are outstanding for their ability to play several instruments. Roger Dollar-hide, a sophomore, is also trumpetist on "My Old Kentucky Home," a beautiful selection written in three variations.. He plays saxophone and clairinet with th* orchestra and is a student of violin and of piano in the school of music, Raymond Culp, a junior, is the other boy. He is also a trumpet soloist. He plays the alto in the Ouachita Little Symphony and is a student of piano and the organ in the school of music. Both boys, have composed several numbers. The piano solo. "Selah," is Mr. Culp'.i own composition. As a theme for the selection he used the twenty-fourth Psalm. It is truly c work of art. Each member of the band is master of his specific instrument. Thus the band is blended together so that it comes up to the essentials necessary for a good concert band.

Down in my Home county of Columbia we used to send the late Jack Kclsoe to the legislature. He only had one fault—that of Imbibing a little too freely at times. When 'he was 80 years old we sent him to the legislature for the last time. One day down in Magnolia Uncle Jack came along the street a little drunk, and mumbling to himself about What he was going to do when he got to Little Rock, 'But look here,' said ,an acquinlance, "the people don't want you to do any of those things.' . . "Uncle Jack straightened up, and replied, "I don't give a damn what the people want—I'm going to give them what they need," "So, if I were dictator of America I would attempt to give the people not what they want but what they need. "I would appoint 12 men to repesent the geographical areas of the country, making them solely responsible to me —not to the people. Responsibility Needed "Much of the evil that has grown up in American government has come about because of divided responsibility. If I accepted the dictatorship I would be willing to accept all the responsibility that went with It. "I would abolish the senate and house of congress. "I would appoint every 'judge and states attorney in America, "Has it ever occurred to you why the federal courts are more efficient, more respected, than the state courts? It is because a federal judge is appointed, serves for a whole .lifetime, and may be removed only for cause; but the state judges and prosecutors are elected. "I would make $25,000 a year the maximum salary allowed any individual anywhere. I would limit corporation earnings to 6 per cent—all over that to go into old-age pensions and unemployment insurance funds. I would make $1,000,000 the maximum amount of wealth allowed any one individual. "Whether you are prepared to admit it or not, capital is on trial in America today. It is accused, not without justice, of permitting too much wealth to get into the hands of too few,individuals. One cure for the depression is to redistribute as much of that wealth as possible. "Capital is not bad. But we are confronted with the issue as to whether we shall master capital or capital master us. Coiiuuoii-Seusc Vl c w "We need to got back to a commonsense view of government and capital and the common people. "Capital, that demands that the government keep hands off in good times, is the first to make its cry for help heard in bad times.
