A clowning Bob Hope pretends to show Ohio State University drum major Dwight Hudson how to twirl a baton during halftime activities at the homecoming game Oct. 21, 1978.

Hope also dotted the "i" with the band during Script Ohio.

"Hudson enjoys the comic's demonstration, but he really doesn't need any lessons," The Columbus Dispatch reported. "His own antics with the baton brought the usual cheers of approval."

Hudson was drum major from 1977 to 1979.
