Bells B4, B9, B16.... B49 will ring together at the LCM of 4, 9, 16, 25, 36 and 49. These are the squares of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. The LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 is 420. Hence the LCM of their squares will be square of the LCM = 420 × 420 = 176400. The bells will ring together after 176400 seconds or 49 hours. Hence they will not even ring together on the day in question.
