She was one of four first division winners out of 16 entries. Jim Brown, cornetist, who won a first playing "Carnival of Ven- ice," was given high praise by the Judge who said "Just like Kryl." Kryl was the famous cor- netist who made the solo fam- ous. Gordon Suedmeler, saxo- phonist, took over for Shirley Wood, who was sick, with only a week to round into shape, and his group placed first.
