If truth be told the rats were DRIVEN out of Hamelin by those 'high notes'.

I've been driven out of wedding receptions by that screeching noise which JUST MUST be amplified to be any good.

Red tried, but the October 15, 1943 of the Pittsburgh (CA) Press notes the failure of Red's effort.

There are just too many places to hide for any noise to drive vermin out of a city.
