The Dec. 8, 1941, copy of the Original ran a story stating MHS had organized an all-girls band, which was the second of its kind in the USA. Their statement read, "Marietta High School is at the top again," and according to the article, it was due to it having the honor of having the second all-girls high school band in the country. The article went on to state it was the only all girls band east of the Mississippi River. The other one was in California.
