During the season 1921 they visited the Conn Factories and equipped themselves with a set of gold instruments DeLux which they consider the greatest move toward success they have ever made. Mr. J. O. Sheehan Is Director of the organization.

"We are certainly proud to say we are using Conn instruments excusively. The Artist Finish Instruments are giving us the utmost satisfaction. The Trumpet is wonderful and has the real tone; the Saxophone is a work of art and perfection itself; the Trombone a marvel for tone and range— all of the instruments being so easy to play. Best wishes. Very truly yours, Signed, J. O. SHEEHAN, Saxophone. CHAS. E. MACK, Trumpet. V. S. SIDES, Trombone.
