from "Musical Organizations" in the 1954 Liber Actorum

"Issuing forth from the rehearsal rooms in the basementmay be heard, almost any day, the sweet tones of the Orchestra, the impressive rhythm of the Band, and the ear-shattering blare of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Resonant tones have so permeated the basement that it has been necessary to soundproof the lunchroom to allow the hungry students to eat in peace."
