Adm~itting "theres little difference
betweer debutantes ard co-eds," a
Michigan man revealed yesterday
that he had attended the recent $50,
000 debutl of Brenda Frazier, 1938's
glittering glamor girl, in New York
City. . I
Preferring to remain nameless lest
hi9 mail be flooded with further in-
vitations, our ambassador of good-
will, who is also a senior in the liter-
ary college, described himself as "just
one' of the 300 stags" who aided the
beautiful heiress to "come out" into
the world. He refused to disclose the
source of his invitation.
Brenda Had 'em All Beat
Miss Frazier, the local envoy de-
olared, would stand out in any crowd
and, in his opinion, the 1,250 mem-
bers of cafe society who descended
upon the ballroom of the Ritz-Carl-
ton were not exceptions. He denied
that 18 year-old Miss Frazier's fu-
ture inheritance of four millioi dol-
lars had influenced his opinion. He

also discounted the possibility that'
some of the 50 cases of champagne
served at the season's most dazzling
debut had gone to his head.
"There were three boys to every
girl," the Michigan man told The
Daily, "so I did not have an oppor-
tunity to dance with Brenda. In fact,'
I spoke to her only when I entered.
She was standing between two social
secretaries, her family and four
guards. Brenda danced the rhumba
until 7 a.m. with about 100 other
Beautiful-Like Heddy Lamarr '
Miss Frazier was dressed in a shiny
white gown with feathers, Ann Ar-
bor's representative related, and was
beautiful like Hedy Lemarr."
Brenda Frazier is a graduate of
several exclusive finishing schools
and most of New York's night clubs.
Our ambassador did not know
whether she could be persuaded to
come to Michigan.

G. Carny. The ceremony is sched-

- ank's D 0 "' At Top
In a survey taken last year of the
same group of records, it was found
that Franck's "D Minor Symphony"
ranked highest; otherwise, approxi-
mately the same music and artists
were most requested then, as now.
One reason, perhaps, why "swing"
records are requested so rarely-and
one of the operators stated that she
couldn't remember the last time she
played a Goodman record-is that
the collection, which is a gift of the
Carnegie Foundation, contains very
little music of this type, only a few
of the better known "classics in- jazz"
being included.
At the present time, about 950 re-
cords are available, as well as 80
books on music and 150 scores, also
granted in the Carnegie donation.
No fund has been provided to add to
the collection, or to replace broken
records, but a number of replace-
ments have been made possible
through individual initiative. In re-
cent weeks,, students' contributions
