HlalKemp Will
Feature Many
Artists At Hop
Bob Allen, Saxie Dowell,;
'Skinny' Emnis Will Be'
Vocalists For Dace
When the two orchestras take their
positions on the bandstands for the
1935 J-Hop the evening of Feb. 9 in
the Intramural Building, on one side
of the huge ballroom will be sta-
tioned Hal Kemp, youthful southern
maestro. From this point he will di-
rect his musicians in the distinctive'
style of rhythm that has been re-
sponsible for their phenomenal rise
to international popularity.
The rise of the Kemp musical unit
is especially attributed to an abun-
dance of featured artists. Most
prominent of these is "Skinny" ]n-
nis, song stylist and interpreter, who
has been with the band since it
originated. Ennis is also adept with
the drum-sticks.
Three other vocalists are fea-
tured in the arrangements played
by the band. Bob Allen, Saxie Dowell,
and Wendell Mayhew take their turn
before the microphone. Pianist John
Scott Trotter adds to the music with
occasional rhythm "breaks."
"Kemp" style was first developed
by Hal Kemp himself and has been
worked out by him in collarobation
with his two chief arrangers, May-
hew and Trotter. The orchestra is
said to be more imitated than any
other and is commonly referred to
as a "musician's band.''
Hal Kemp's band may be heard
over radio station WGN, Chicago, at
regular intervals every evening.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the seventh
of a series of articles on prominent
women in the University.
There are many youngsters in the
world who when asked what they are
going to do when they grow up reply
"I'm going to be a teacher', but not
many say, "I'm going to study as-
tronomy and mathematics." That
was Hazel Losh's answer. Dr. Losh's
childhood ambitions were realized for

there. A scholarship to Ohio Wes-
leyan University, in Delaware, O.,
sent her there to get her A.B. de-
gree. Latin, mathematics, and as-
tronomy occupied much of her aca-
demic time, together with the courses
in education which she took to en-
able her to teach in Ohio high ,
Finding that she was even morel
interested in astronomy than she had

expected, she decided to continue her
work at Michigan. She was granted
a fellowship in 1921 and continued
her work through 1924, receiving her
master's degree in 1922, and her doc-
ter's in 1924. She chose Michigan for
her work primarily because it is one
of the few universities where the ob-
servatory is associated closely enough
with the college that work in physics,
and mathematics can be done simul-
taneously with the work in the ob-
Dr. Losh was an instructor at
Smith College for Women for a year
before she went to Mt. Wilson, Pasa-
dena, which is the largest observatory
in the world. There she was offered
a research position in the solar de-
par tment.
Two years later, Dr. Ralph Curtiss,
then director of the observatory here,

J - Hop demands traditionally
that you appear at your romantic
smoothest. Also it promises the
utmost in actual splendor this
year of all times. But your tiara
is bound to look rather miserable
if your locks are not modeled ex-
actly to frame its glow, and an old

self-conscious all the evening, and

put you in the proper mood.
There's nothink like the satis-
faction of a new spring bonnet to
invigorate your spirits, and hold
them at ace level during these

subject fairly haunts us, so spring
shopping we must go. Come
along? We find at Collins' Shoppe

bious about wearing the extreme
models, Mrs. Collins has some
brimmed selections just in from
