Junior Editors Quiz on TRUMPET QUESTION: How old is the trumpet? ANSWER: The known history of the trumpet dates back to 2000 B. C. Probably early trumpets were not man-made, but were natural horns of shell or bone. Such a horn would be used by trumpeteers like the one in our illustration, who is striding across the rough country of the Wilderness, leading the children of Israel to the promised land by the sound of the trumpet. Or mountain tribesmen would use the trumpet to communicate with more remote tribes. Today the trumpet is made, of brass. The greater part of its length Is of small-bore cylindrical tubing, and there are three piston valves which can be pushed down at different intervals so the player can run through the entire musical scale. The trumpet's sharp, clear, almost penetrating tone makes it a perfect instrument for orchestras. Sometimes a mute is used to soften its tone. FOR YOU TO DO: Listen to a recording of a symphony orchestra and see if you can hear the clear voice of the trumpet, and separate it from the other wind instruments. Verdi's opera "Aida" has a stirring trumpet call when the victorious general comes back at the head of his army with a detachment of elephants to celebrate his victory. (Alan Fyock of Johnstown, Pa., wins this week's $10 prize for his musical question. Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, welcomes your questions. Write her on a postcard in care of this newspaper.
