I The band has been particularly ~utstanding because of its phenom- t~,al size. Though the Greenville I-Itgh School ts rated among the smaller schools of the state, the band has the reputation of being one of the largest high ~chool bands ta the state in proportion to the liUmber of students enrolled. J. W. Riley, formerly director of the Portola High School band, was the first director for the Greenville I'~lgh School band. Next was C. R. ~chott, now director of the Quincy ~ltgh School band. He was followed by D. L. McQuilkin, who taught l~rt time. Then for two years the l~and was under the direction of E. I T Harding, now principal of the high school at Middletown in Lake County. The 'band in 1934 had an instrumentation of about 80 pieces, ~hich, for the size of th-'e high ~Chool was considered a fair s~zed' ~aud. R.L.

The dance band has a personnel of ~0 members and has already appeared tn public t local school dances, a Portola High School dance, and at ~t Quincy school party. Following the band concert next Thursday, the dance band will fill an engagement In Quincy by playing for the Quincy High School Junior prom April 20. The quartet numbers have been especially arranged for the local concer~ and the students have spent a great deal of time out of class to sufficiently master the music. A special number to be played by the full band will feature a b~arltone solo with band accompaniment. The entire program has been chosen with the idea of giving plea- sure to those who attend the con. cert. PROGRAM ]~trch, "The Fairest of the Fair" . 'Souse '~/he Glow Worm" Lincke '~Dusty Trombone" .

He left the room hs~ppy, but wet to the skin. All over Feather River League t~rritory, baseball is definitely in the air.
