THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C.
High School Band Directors
Here on a Toot With Navy
Between 300 and 400 high
school band directors are here
(or a toot.
The conductors hail from 26
States east of the Mississippi, and
the toot is a two-day
band clinic at the Navy School
of Music at the Anacostia Naval
Receiving Station.

although it didn’t want to seem
to blow its own horn, wanted to
help out the high school musi
cians and at the same time
possibly drum up some business
for Navy recruiting stations. So
Invitations were sent out to most
of the high schools in the East,
inviting the band directors, at
their own expense, to attend the
The clinic, which, according to
Navy sources, is the largest of
its sort ever to be held in the

TRYON, N. C., Feb. 4.
Frederick C. Penny considered

nothing special about It.
Mr. Penney, a native of
Canaan. Me., got up early as
usual, puttered around the house,
carried in some kindling, walked
down to his rural mail box.
But his sisters, Mrs. Cecil
Heard and Miss Edith Penney,
invited everyone in the com

it isn’t every day that someone
observes his 105th birthday.
Mr. Penney left Maine in
1869 and was in the real es

from 1873 until 1926. when he
retired to Bronxville, N. Y. He
