made the suggestion to Mr. Ross that the National and Inter-
American Music Week Committee would like to present to the President
a composite piano, the joint and cooperative work of all
members of the Piano Manufacturers Association. At first
wanted to make presentation in May 1950, but manufacturers
felt time too short to do it in way they wanted it done, so
was postponed to 1951. Presentation made in Fish Room;
Major Santelmann of the Marine Band made the opening remarks
and presented Otto J. Mallery, President of National
Recreation Association, sponsor of National Music Week, who
presented the piano to the President. The President made a
few remarks, played the piano a bit, and then asked some of
the servicemen present to try out the piano.)
