Band Preparation for Rose Bowl
Dec. 18, 1951

Caption on back reads, "Getting ready for the appearance of the University of Illinois band on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl, Everett D. Kisinger (left), Football Band Director and Mark H. Hindsley, Director of University bands, plan a rose formation.  To chart a formation, Kisinger arranges small screws representing each of the 175 bandsmen on a scale gridiron, and checks the fans' viewing angle by sighting down the phantom model of the stands. From the resulting sketch each bandsman marks his music so he can move to the proper spot on the field without special signal. The rose formation will have a second phase in which the bud opens into a blossom. Music will be 'Only a Rose'".
