Room Only" as the Duke steps out tomorrow night at Millburn High School. At 8:30 P. M. the high school Symphonic Band will play their seventh annual concert dedicated this year as a farewell concert for conductor Frederick A. Bove, known affectionately to thousands of students as "Duke" Mr. Bove will enter the Navy as a band master next week. The committee in charge of tickets reported a sell-out early this week. The money derived from the concert will be used to buy new uniforms for the band. The old ones have been used since 1933, when the band was organized by Mr. Bove. The group has played for nearly every civic function in the Township since then, as well as at all functions at the high school. For several years they played at the summer concerts in Taylor Park. Band members have worked long and hard on this concert to make it the best ever, and have prepared a difficult and pleasing program. The highlights of the program include a baritone 3olo by Ruth Pritchard; a clarinet quartet by Enid Junge, Audrey Krauss, Esther Hershey, Don Maveety; a piano solo by Donald Nold, and a saxophone quartet by Wayne Frey, John Meeker, Dean Jeynes and Marilyn EUwanger. The complete program follows: "Star Spangled Banner," arr. John Sousa; "Czech Rhapsody," J. Weinberger; "Reverie," C. Debussy; "La Petite Suzanne," Arthur Pryor (arr. F. A. Bove); "Holiday f o r Strings," David Rose; Overture to the Opera, "Barber of Seville," G. Rossini; "Prelude and Scherzo," David Bennett; "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," Jerome Kern; Grieg "Piano Concerto," E. Grieg (arr. D. Nold); Medley from "Oklahoma," R. Rodgers; "Wine, Women, and Song," J- Strauss; "Scherzo," Mielenz-Voxman; "Finale" from 4th Symphony in F. Minor," P. Tschaikowsky; "Au Revoir," the Symphonic Band. Mr. Bove came to Millburn High School in 1932 as a commercial instructor with instrumental music classes as an extra-curricular activity. It was not long before Mr. Bove devoted all his time to building up the organization that is now recognized as one of the best in the State. Mr. Bove received his B.S. degree at Rider College, and his musical training at the Eastman Conservatory of Music in Rochester. He was also a private pupil of Arthur Pryor, the famous band leader.

that an egg won't hatch unless you sit on it the proper length of time. Wise old bird! As with eggs, so with nest eggs. The best nest egg in the world today is the War Bond. It's an incomparably safe investment. It pays $4 for every $3 you put up. . But... In order to £et that nice fat interest, you have to

sit on a Bond for the proper length of-time. 10 years, to be exact. You can get your money before that, any time after 60 days. But you won't get the full benefit. You lose the interest. You take your money out of the fight. You kill off savings that might be a blessing in days when money doesn't flow'as freely as it does today. Buy more War Bonds. Sit on tnem.

New Ceiling Price Survey
With a second survey of prices in retail food stores now in progress "to consolidate and improve the 85 per cent compliance found during the first survey last month," OPA discloses that the "most important fact revealed by the surveys is that the vast majority of our retailers are anxious to be informed of all requirements, and that they welcome the assistance rendered by volunteer Price Panel • Assistants." It is urged that all women "who have the welfare of their country at heart" and who have a few hours a week to spare. T!b volunteer at their local War Price and Rationing Boards as Price Panel Assistants. District OPA also announced this week that 20 pounds of sugar per person for home canning is now obtainable upon application

at local War Price and Rationing Boards. This 20 pounds is in addition to the five pounds of canning sugar available through use of Sugar Stamp 40 in Ration Book 4. The application form, which may be secured by sending a penny postal to the local board, is far simpler than the form used last year. It requires the applicant simply to list the names of the persons in the family the application covers, and provides a space in. which the applicant attaches the No.,, 37 Spare Stamp from . each such persons Ration Book 4. The use of Spare Stamp 37 has been adopted to eliminate the bother of having' to send the entire ration book to the board. The applicant also enters the total number of pounds he is applying for (not to exceed 20 pounds per person).

Students Send News Letter
Men and women in all parts of the world will receive this week a news letter from the students of Short Hills Country Day School. The letter will go to the 90 graduates of the school who are now serving with the Army, Navy, Marines, Wacs and Waves. An exhibition of the pictures of these graduates and their uniforms are on permanent display in the school auditorium. The news letter is one of the war-time projects of the boys and girls in the school. It was thought that graduates in the far corners of the world would welcome a touch of home in the form of news about other graduates, of past athletic incidents and present changes and additions to the school. Material for the letter was collected and written up by various pupils and humorous illustrations were made by a younger graduate home from boarding school. There are also letters from the headmaster and the athletic coaches, and a social page of marriages, engagements and births. . This project takes the place this year of one of the issues of the Short Hills Country Day School magazine, which is edited and printed by the pupils several times a year. and treasurer of the Underhill Society. He leaves his wife Mrs. Katherine Underhill, two daughters and a brother, G. Townsend Underhill of Short Hills. . Funeral services were held Wednesday.

According to the Government the supply of canned fruits will be cut 43 percent, and canned vegetables 1 9 percent for civilian use this year, due to military needs. If. the cans on your grocer's shelves were that much smaller in size, as shown in the illustration, you would realize at a glance how.much less will be available. So remember that although the cans may still be just as large, there will be fewer of them, and begin to plan now to increase your stock of home canned products proportionately. Last year Victory Gardens and home canning did a big job in meeting America's food needs. This year the job is a bigger one, but we can do it, and do it better! ' Stop at your nearest Jersey Central office for canning directions and recipes.
