C. Back has acquired the new title of "Lumberjack Tune Detective." William J. Duchaine has written an article in, the May issue of the "American Forests" on Dr. Beck's unique hobby of tracking down the unwritten, ballads of American .woodsmen. Dr. Beck has • been collecting songs and stories of the Michigan lumberjacks from sawmill towns and lumber camps for the last fifteen years. He has traveled from New England to the Pacific Northwest hunting down clues. In 1933 he organized the lumberjack orchestra composed of veterans of the ax, saw, and conthook. The group of old timers has since traveled all over the country, and has gained fame as the "best bunch of lumberjacks around." The majority of the group are past eighty years old; but are still, rated as the best cracker-jack fiddlers of old tunes. Four of Dr. Beck's favorite finds were published along with the story of his hobby. "A Shantyman's Life," "Louie .Sands and Jim^McGee," "The Druee", and "Bung Yer Eye" seem to be among the favorite tunes of the old time lumberjacks. Keeler Residents Vary Wed.
