Port St. Joe's high school band, shown here marching down the main
drag in Tallahassee. joined with over 1500 musicians from high school
bands in Florida and Georgia,in celebrating the second annual Florida
State University Band Day in the capital city Saturday. October 4.
Although small in size as compared to some of the other-bands, the St.
Joe 'band made up for it by its smart appearance during the parade and,
night football game. It was the first time that the local band, under
the direction of Daniel Temkin, attended the annual affair, and from
comments of band members, they certainly want to go again next
year. However, all was not so gay, for during the rehearsal at the foot-
ball field in the afternoon one -St. Joe girl collapsed from the heat and
during the parade another dropped out. The big show was saved for
the football game, when all 27 high school bands and the F. S. U. band
paraded, played and went into formations on the gridiron at half time.

gram. Tootsie Jammes g-ave a very
educational lecture on "Little Bo
Peep," and everyone swooned upon
hearing the sensational song, "Ju-
nior Birdmen," that is sweeping the
country. Kenneth Hurbut gave an
up-to-the-minute report on news in
the world of sports to conclude the
The number one spot in senior
high was captured by the sopho-
more class in a comical episode of
what would happen if girls played
football. Benny Roberts, acting as
narrator, got a pass (not a ball)
from Ann Kenney, the live wire
These are just a sample of the
talent we have.
