One of those flexible part grabber tools would probably do the trick:
If there were room enough for such a grabber to expand enough to grasp the chap stick, the chap stick wouldn't be stuck. I have such a grabber.
I am with Ivan on this one ... snake up through the valve into the bell
The bell tappers in, good chance one end of the chap stick is stuck and the other end can be grabbed.
But the snake through the valve is a better option.
Get a garden hose without fittings. It will fit almost perfectly over your lead pipe. Hold the horn so that the slides don't pop out andget someone to turn the hose on. Something has gotta give.
This happened to two of my students this year. (first time in my 16 years of teaching and it happens twice?) anyway.
Both times I took the horn to my custodian and while I held the slides he shot compreed air through it. It works, but I felt those slides kick!
I prefer water . Compressors can be a little harsh.
Carefull, it could be the valve tubing that gives.
if you play Chopstick's on the piano, perhaps you can coax the other chapstick out from hiding in the bell!!!
