The only real Indian, "in the bunch, however, was the chief himself, a Cherokee from Oklahoma, who forsook the riches of the oil lands of th. territory for, the beauty of the harmony of Michigan. And harmony it was—of two hours duration—and it pleased the large crowd, which filled, the high school auditorium almost capacity. The Society for the Preservation of Barber Shop Singing ir> America had a new quartet added to its. list with the Saline Singing Four making its debut. Composed of Raymond Burkhardt, George Martin, Aaron Girbach and R. S. Hocking, it made a hit and drew a fine round of applause. Tecumseh's Four Knights of Harmony and T. P. Broadcasters and the Ann Arbor Four were excellent, but the high honors went to Redford's Cleft Dwellers anfl Lloyd LeBaron's quartet from Wayne. These two quartets were really tops in close harmony, and. colorful and dramatic, and the judges awarded the trophy to Redford and gave second place to Wayne.
