New Uniforms for LHS Marching Band
April 19, 1941
Seventy members of the Lassen high school band, paraded the streets of Susanville yesterday, headed by their leader and instructor, Guilbert DuMont, in appreciation of a public subscription of $1,500 which provided new blue and gold uniforms, the majorettes being attired in white satin and silver.
The high school trustees contributed $750; Rotarian, $300 and the city of Susanville, $150. The balance was contributed by clubs and lodges, with the local post of the American Legion fringed American flags on standard.
The band, rated as “superior” at recent state music meets, has been without uniforms, and as a result, was dubbed “Coxy’s Juvenile Army.”
