"Melancholy Baby," "Tiger Rag"
And Popular Airs Add Luster To
Impressive Array
Paul Whiteman, famed "king of
jazz," and his well known orchestra
will give a concert tonight at 8:15
o'clock in Hill auditorium. White-
man was last heard here three
years ago, and has just returned to
the concert stage after a prolonged
absence during which time his or-
chestra attained even greater
heights than ever before through'
a constantly increasing popularity
as phonograph recorders.
The program which Whiteman!
has arranged for his Ann Arbor I
performance is as follows:
I Introduction: "Yes, Jazz is

Expecting a last minute rush for
the remaining seats tonight, two
box offices will be maintained.
Seats at all prices are still left, it
has been announced.
Has Given 600 Concerts
Whiteman's memorable debut
took place on February 12, 1924
when he appeared in a concert
hall in New York with what had
been hitherto un-recognized, "a
jazz orchestra." Since his immedi-
ate popularity there, he has given
more than 600 concerts in the
United States, Canada, and Europe,
and has received recognition from
all corners of the world.
The popular artist has made two
transcontinental tours. At the
present time he is on his way for
another long American tour which
started at Carnegie hall, New York
Mast month.
Paul Whiteman has often stated
his belief that the college musician
is an important factor in the de-
velopment of jazz music. He has
further intimated that he is par-
ticularly interested in college men
for positions in his orchestra, not
only because they play well, but be-
causehebelieves further that their
altogether proper attire is an addi-
tional asset to the quality of the
Services In Hleavy Demand
Many popular composers have
made special efforts to provide
Whiteman and his orchestra with
selections for presentation by his
orchestra. For example, Gersh-
win's "Rhapsody in Blue" was
originally introduced by Whiteman
in 1924. Recently Roger Wolfe
Kahn, son of the prominent banker
-and backerĀ° of the Metropolitan
opera house in New York, has for-
saken his orchestra to compose

Present Informal Discussion On
Subject. Of Playwriting At
Rhetoric Seminar

Tomorrow's presentation of
Lenox Robinson, renowned Irish
dramatist, novelist, and producer,
by the rhetoric department will
come as a surprise, for it was only
at a late hour yesterday that final
and definite arrangements could be
made to insure the presence of Mr.;
Robinson in Ann Arbor.
He will make two addresses to-
morrow. The first will be an in-
formal affair, given at 2:00 o'clock
in the rhetoric seminar to the stu-
dents of the play writing class of
the rhetoric department. Mr. Rob-
inson has requested that only a
small group' attend this discussion,
which will be based on the sub-
ject "Play Writing." Any students
interested in the subject, aside
from those enrolled in the class,
are cordially invited to listen to
the visitor. The' second lecture of
the afternoon will be public and
delivered at 4:15 o'clock in Univer-
sity hall auditorium, His subject
for the later lecture will be "The
Abbey Theater," of which he is at
present manager.
The subject of the second talk
is that famous old theater in Dub-
lin so figurative in the progress of
the Irish dramatic renaissance. It
was the stage of this theater which'
produced the offerings of Synge,
Yeats, Lady Gregory, St. John[
Irvin, and Sean O'Casey.
The reason enabling the appear-
ance of Robinson in Ann Arbor is
due to the necessity of his pres-
ence in Detroit this season to
superintend the production of his
play "The Whiteheaded Boy," at
the Civic Theater under the direc-
tion of the Bonstelles.
The lecturer is considered to be
one of the most influential leaders
of the dramatic movement in Ire-
land, where, he was for a time a
critic for the dramatic columns of
the London Spectator.

Weiman, Rich, And Captain-Elect
Will Also Give Talks At
All-Campus Affair
Michigan's 1929 football captain
will be introduced tonight at the
annual football banquet to be held
beginning at 6 o'clock in the ball
room of the Union.
The. banquet which is given in
honor of the football squad and at
which the entire squad are to be
guests of the Union, will be ad-
dressed by Joe Magidsohn, '11E, all-
Western halfback in 1909 and 1910;
as the outside speaker, by Coach
Elton E. (Tad) Wieman, by Captain
George Rich, '29L, as well as by
the -captain-elect. Carl Brandt of
the speech department, it is an-
nounced, will act as toastmaster.
It is the wish of Union officials
sponsoring the banquet that the
attention of students attending be
called to the time when the ban-
quet is due to start which is 6
o'clock and not 6:15 o'clock as
printed on the tickets. This change
is being made so that the banquet
will be over in time for any who
care to do so to attend the White-
man concert beginning at 8:15
o'clock in Hill auditorium.
An Outstanding Official
Magidsohn, it is expected, will
prove of special interest as in addi-
tion to being prominent in Univer-
sity alumni circles, he is one of the
most outstanding of Big Ten foot-
ball officials.
He did not see a single Michigan
game: this year, although his home
is in Detroit, owing to the fact
that he has been engaged each
week of the fall officiating for vari-
ous conference teams.
A member 'of the board of gov-
ernors of the Detroit University of
Michigan club, Magidsohn held a
similar position in Chicago before
locating in Detroit. It is expected
that he will devote the major por-
tion of his remarks to comments
concerning other Big Ten teams
and their games this year, throw-
ing interesting sidelights upon
number of the contests.
