Theme 2 (1966): "The N.F.L. Signature"

    [above is the title on composer Merrick's manuscript 
     in his papers at Washington State University at Pullman;
     although there is no specific title like this in the BMI
     database, it is undoubtedly part of "NFL Films-BG Cues"
     which is listed, as published by EMI-Grove Park Music;

     This opening signature was probably thematically 
     related to the full "N.F.L. March" below]
