Albio High Band Presents Spring Concert Sunday Ancient history ami modern musical comedy are included on the program for the Spring Concert which Albia Itinh school's hand will present Sunday under the direction of M. C. Kckert. The program will open at 2:3(1 p.m. iii the field house. One of the selections, "C!as<U' Ovcriure," hy fjossec. dates back to the beginning of band concerts. Newest music is from the Score of a smash Broadway musical, "Damn Yankees." History of modern wind hand begins with the French Revolution, Eckert commented in discussing the Sunday program, when popular open-air concerts became an important part of festivals and celebrations. Leading composers of the time began to consider the band as a medium for serious musical expression—and among them was Francois-Joseph Gossec, whose earlier work's in the symphony form antedate even those of Haydn. Gossec composed during the period of the revolution and the TO ALL HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS AND SENIORS DISCOUNT ON ALL GRADUATION SUITS French Republic a number of pieces for bund, including three symphonies. The "Classic Overture \vfts compoesd in 179!. probably foi the band of the National Guard i founded in 1780) of which Gossei was a short-time conductor. Thr band for which "Classic Overture' was written consisted of piccolos flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons horns, trumpets and serpents. For modern use there has been a reconstruction of the score, utilizing the instruments of the original band, except for the serpent, ami adding those which are now customary. Kckert said the overture was rediscovered by Richard Franko Goldman, and edited by Goldman and Roger Smith. Also on the program is "Frances of Dinan," by Damian, based on a legend more than 400 years old. The City of Dinan, on the Meuse River in Belgium, has been the scene of famous battles in 1466, 1554, 1675 and 1914. Frances of Dinan was a legendary heroine of the battle of 1554, when the French captured the city. It is said she helped man the ramparts and was a great inspiration to the soldiers. Francois Damian took this legend as the basis of his descriptive fantasy. The opening measures, contrasting fortissimo and pianissimo, are designed to suggest the strength and femininity of the heroine, while alternation of ant ante and allegro sections throughout the work continue this basic idea. Listeners will recognixe the "Damn Yankee" selections from ra dio and TV repetitions. Kramer— i. ALSIA Thursday, May 3, 1036 FOR LIONS— nrv program Monday pvoninR.

A. office in Otlumwa, said oriay. This suggestion is made, Ogden explained, in order to speed up Iirect V. A. \o-/n processing and to set up a priority system for vet- >rans who are unable to secure \/A-guaranteed GI loans from pri- ••ale lenders through VHMCP. Previously, veterans seeking GI onus were being referred direct to VHMCP regional committees so hat these committees might be ible to assist in..securing private CJI mortgage financing for World War II and Korean conflict period veterans living In remote areas and small communities. Veterans, applying to the VA, will be sent a VHMCP home loan application. VA will then put their names on a register so tnat a follow-up may be made and a priority established for the individual veteran. Should the VHMCP committees be unable to provide regular GI financing for homes from private lenders, the veterans jthen can apply to the VA for a direct government loan. Loans secured from private lenders through the facilities of VHMCP regional committees will be guaranteed loans bearing the same interest rate as VA direct loans — 4 1 .-; percent per annum. Recently the VA took another important step in speeding up the process of getting mortgage financing for veterans living in rural areas by cutting the time for referring direct loan applications to VHMCP regional committees, Ogden said. dicating that the majority of Iowa farmers are convinced of the need for livestock supports. He- pointed out that 62% of the farmers queried favored hog supports, while only 23'% were opposed, with the balance undecided. ' "You of course realize that our Iowa party has not a single 'member of either branch of congress to dramatize our needs," Kramer told Butler. "I therefore urge you to use you good office to include livestock supports in the Democratic bill or add them by amendment."
