Director Guy Duker and the Band Booster Association were hoping for and working toward a record crowd for the event. "The biggest compensation a band member can receive for all his weeks of work Is to play before a good audience," commented Duker today. "We are making every effort through the Band Boosters to assure our players of this audience." A carefully selected committee of Boosters has devoted the last week or so to calling 800 families which had reason to be Interested In the band, Inviting them to attend. Tha admission will be purely nominal, since the band has abandoned fund raising efforts this year. One admission for parents will pay for the family If accompanied by the parents. For the benefit of students, high school activity tickets will be honored, too, Duker said. The band that takes the stage Tuesday night will be composed of 90 players. Thirty of these, Duker mentioned with elation, are sophomores, which means they have two more years after this one to play in the band. Duker said the concert was dated a trifle close to the end of the football season so that five midyear graduates could play In it before commencement. The five will be honored at a special party to follow the band's dress rehearsal Monday evening. Samuel Fanning Dies at Age 43 Former Altonian Sue* cumbs at Springfield, Mo.
