MN: In that acapella group learned a song called, it was the musical called Ballad for (Americans). It was a beautiful song, and they wanted to take that to other camps and take it out to different places to see that this is the kind of song that the kids in camp are singing. It's all about America, it's the history of America from King George in England and to the machine age or whatever. But it was a wonderful song, and they wanted to introduce it to all the other camps. But they could never get the permission. But we did have the outlying Caucasians come into the camp to listen to the program that we did sing for them, the Caucasian people in Bishop and Lone Pine and Ridgecrest, they all came into this program that we all sang.
