 eration," second in a series on how
 various UW divisions implement the
 Wisconsin Idea of service to the
 state in continuing programs. Last
 issue featured the Medical School.
 More are coming up!
   COVER: The other Sunday after
 our gridiron Badgers went down to
 defeat before UCLA, a Madison
 newspaper remarked: "Well, it
 wasn't the band's fault." It is true
 that, nowadays, many university and
 college bands put on between-the-
 halves productions in a grand man-
 ner probably undreamed of in the
 olden days. Masters at contriving
 such spectacles such as the one dis-
 played on this month's cover-a can-
 non firing, smoke and all, Bucky
 Badger over the goal line for a
 touchdown  against Marquette-are
 the members of the University of
 Wisconsin's 150-piece football band,
 under the direction of grid band di-
 rector Don Marcouiller and the
 UW's beloved director of bands,
 Ray Dvorak. Regardless of how the
 game is going, the bouncing Badger
 bandsmen are always full of hope as
 they are led through their neat and
 intricate maneuvering by sharp-step-
 ping Stan Stitgen.
 Band activity, by the way, has been
 eminently successful. Its recording of
 the first Wisconsin college songs disc
 in 30 years has been selling like
 hotcakes from the Victor Music store,
456 State St., Madison, in both 78
and 45 r.p.m. sizes, at $1.15.
