Enrich Arrangement* j Actually the Illinois arrangers lake things written for symphony orchestras, and in some places actually enrich them because of the greater body of their town, lo large masses and played by the skilled individuals who make up the band, even the clarinet parts which customarily replace strings in such arrangements fall kindly on the ear. The program opened.with the tuneful overture to Glinka's "Russian and Lumilla." Came then the two compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach, "Come Sweet Death" and "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," enriched greatly by the arrangements —almost Into something else. Hears Own Version Pfc. Eldon Oyen, now stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, was over to bear the arransement he had worked out for St. Saens' "Danse Macabre." Robert Nelll, pianist, performed dextrously and powerfully on Addinsell's "Warsaw Con- cerlo." Edward German's "Welsh Rhapsody" and George McKay's "The Forty-Niners" provided a broad contrast in adaptation of folk music from opposite sides of the Atlantic. Then came the Berlioz, after which Director Mark H, Hindsley resumed the baton for Beldon Leonard's "Sketches in Miniature," Mlklos Bozsa's Triumphal March from "Quo Vadis," and the Sousa march. Duker was recalled to lead the band—both playing and singing —in the Edwin Franko Goldman march "Illinois."

The concert starts at 8:15i. Director Max StPindel has been trying several different arrangements of position for the orches- ra in West Junior High Audifo- ium to take best advantage of he acoustical situation there. At tonight's concert he'll try another. The orchestra will be backed up against the hard, glazed wall nt the entrance end of the gym loor. Thus Steindel hopes to take advantage of the sound reflec- ive power of the smooth wall, and at the same time avoid what on occasion has been an annoy- ng eeho^just about the only one about the place. The nudiennce seated on the gym floor, then, will face in the opposite direction from the stage. At last night's dress rehearsal he orchestra was visited by University of Illinois Bands Director Mark Hinds ley, who dropped around to pay his respects to Conductor Steindel. The band was in town for a concert yesterday afternoon at West Junior High. Some of the band members spent part of the evening at last night's dress rehearsal, too. Man, 80, A rrested Twice in Day For Intoxication One of the highlights of the multiplicity of police arrests Sunday was the arrest twice on the same day of an 80-year-old man on charges of intoxication. The octogenarian first was picked up by the police in the 300-block of Monument Ave., where he had been seen to fall by a motorist who phoned the police desk. In the forenoon, he was fined and released, the record shows. But. by 7 p.m. the elderly man was back in jail. This time ho had gone to sleep under a box car near the foot of Oak St., the report shows. There was observed by Lucien Harris, streets supervisor, when making a trip to the Municipal Garage. Harris called police to voice fear the man was endangered because some car switching was in progress nearby. Sf*t U. S. Census Bureau Project Start? Tuesday The U.S. Census Bureau, at the request of the Madison Coiffity Housing Authority, will conduct a Family Income and Rent Survey locally beginning Tuesday, according to Hobert A. Yerkey of the Bureau's district office in St. Louis. Mo. Yerkey win supervise the survey. The survey will furnish current information on rents, family size and composition, and family income. These facts will be used by the local housing authority in administering the low-rent public housing developed under the U.S. Housing Act of 4937 as amended. Approximately 250 households will be covered in the survey. The Census Bureau's scientific sampling processes were used to provide a representative sample of selected types of households, thus resulting in a saving of time and cost of taking a census of all households. Yerkey pointed out that the survey is being taken under the basis census law Which provides that all answers to question* about individuals will be kept confidential. Only statistical totals will be released by the Census Bureau to the Madison County Housing Authority, Yerkey said. Mrs. Hartmann Rites Saturday Afternoon The body of Airs. Elizabeth M.
