*"No Trumps" was composed by Fred Gardner.
Though it was credited to Gardner the tune is really a modified arrangement of the "Darktown Strutters' Ball".
There were actually two Tom Howell's who were band-mates in Fred Gardner's "Texas University Troubadours". One "Tom Howell" was the band's cornetist Thomas Alva Howell jr., while the other can be identified as pianist F.N. "Tommy" Howell.
