Originally written in 1925 for xylophone and piano.  It is basically a ragtime march, and avoids the elaborate cross-rhythms and sticking techniques popularized by the composer's brother, George Hamilton Green.  This simplicity, however, is part of its charm, and the Trio section is a classic stop-time chorus.
