Eveleth News September 16, 1917
"Eveleth will have one of the finest musical organizations in the state when plans now under way for the consolidation of all local bands have been completed. An organization has already been formed and the city council has appointed a committee to confer with the band men on the organization of the municipal band to be made of the best talent from the various organizations.
"C.U. Jenkins has been elected president of the organization and J.J. Brince and James Greco are directors. No band director has been selected and none will be named until the organization is completed and a conference held with the council committee.
"Forty-five musicians have signed an agreement to disband their old organization and lend their support to the consolidated band. With the organization of the new band the Fayal band, one of the oldest organizations on the range and long under the direction of Professor Scott, veteran bandman and president of the range band league, will go out of existence as will the City Band, directed by Professor Moroni. The High School band will continue under the direction of H.O. Anhalt but only as a school organization and the members will cooperate with the municipal band.
"The musicians in a petition to the council Tuesday night asked the support of the city for the new organization and a committee of three from the council was appointed to meet with the bandmen and learn just what is desired. Mayor Jacob S. Saari, himself a veteran bandman, heads the committee with Councilmen J.M. Trevarrow and Mike Langdon as the other members."
