Musical news from the June 8, 1922 edition of the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Young People’s Band Has 28 Members

Held First Meeting Friday Evening — Benefit Social to be Held Saturday Evening.

The Young People’s Band held its first regular meeting at the Royal Hall Friday evening, with a large attendance. A twenty-eight piece band was organized as follows:

Cornets: — Vernon Barrett, Hope Manchester, Eleanor Montgomery, Mrs. R. J. McClain, Carter Botkin, Howard Earley, Everett Long, Alice Barrett.

Clarinets: — Ralph Conrad, Erman Miller, Eula Miller, Pauline Rodman, Margaret Strickler.

Alto: — Harry Lyle, Clarence King, Denton Peoples.

Slide Trombone: — Harry McDaniel, Hiram Montgomery, Ella Manchester, Douglas Linville.

Tenor: — Douglas Wells.

Piccolo: — Carl Hilgerth.

Baritone: — James Earley.

Bass: — Earl King.

Saxophones: — Johnny Conrad and Homer Beverlin.

Snare Drum: — Pauline Manchester.

Bass Drum: — Richard Barrett.

This is a splendid line-up for a band, and there are doubtless others who will join later.  A great deal of interest is being taken, and with regular practice and plenty of it, there is reason to believe that Skidmore will have a first class band.

A social will be held on the lots north of the Monarch, Saturday evening, the proceeds to go to the new band. Home-made ice cream and cake will be served at 15 cents.
