Marriage Took Anson Weeks
Out Of College, Into Orchestra

By NORMA KAPHAN
loping with his. childhood sweet-
heart the day after registration, An-
son Weeks, who is scheduled to play
at Capitalist Ball, brought to an
abrupt close both a college education
and all thoughts of a career in the
business world.
He had planned to spend four years
at the University of California, play-
ing football for relaxation, and go-
ing to the school of business admin-
istration for an education. However,
faced with the necessity of support-
ing himself and his newly acquired
wife, Weeks returned to his first love
. music. . . and organized his own
orchestra.
His first major musical triumph
came when he was held over at 'the
Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francis-
co for six years by popular request.
Ambitious, however, for more wide-
spread fame, Weeks took his orches-
tra to Chicago, where it achieved fame
in the Aragon and Trianon Ballrooms,
and in the famous Edgewater Beach
Hotel. Continuing his eastward trek,
Anson Weeks took his group of 16
men to New York, where they played
long engagements at well known
hotels such as the Waldorf-Astoria,
the Roosevelt and the St. Regis.
'Dancin' With Anson'
It was while he was broadcasting
over a radio program with Walter
Winehell that the slogan "Dancin'
With Anson" was born. The glib
tongued commentator authored the
remark, but Weeks took it upon him-
self to: prove conclusively that the
public would "go dancin' with An.-
sort."r
In addition to winning fame for
himself in the orchestral world,
Weeks has provided the field of musi-
cal entertainment with many notable
successes. One of his first proteges
was: the Dixieland Band maestro, Bob
Crosby. Bob, with the aid of Weeks,
proved that the younger brother of
a famous ran could become known
in his own right.
Gr~iff Williams, who recently
pla yed here at Caduceus Ball was one
of Weeks' discoveries; another was
Xavier Cugat, the "Tango and Rhum-
ba r"" othof these men started
their musical careers in the Weeks
orchestra.
Knowu As Song Writer
Not being content, however, to sit
back and rest on his or his proteges'
lkurels,. Anson Weeks set out to make
a name for himself as a composer
of popular music. Some of his orig-
imal compositions which have achieved
fame are "I'm Sorry Dear," "Sorry,"
"The Last Dance," and more recently,
the Hawaiiaxi n elody, "Pali."
Anson Weeks feels that one of the
prerequisites, of a fine orchestra is the
ability to please an audience of listen-
ers and an audience of dancers.
"There is a great deal of difference
between stage and dance music. The
former is created for the purpose of
Albion Graduates

entertaining listeners while they re-
lax in comfortable seats, while dancea
music is presented for both dancing
and listening," he said recently. An-
son Weeks and his orchestra have
proven their versatility by the fact
that they've been enthusiastically re-
ceived by listeners and dancers.
To Play Here March 15
Whether you're a "capitalist" or a
member of the proletariat, you'll
have the opportunity of "goin' danc-
in' with Anson" on March 15, for
Weeks will play at Capitalist Ball.
Although sponsored by the School
of Business Administration, the an-
nual formal is open to the' entire stu-
dent body.
When Anson Weeks brings his 16
piece orchestra to Ann Arbor, they
will be accompanied by Cherie Dun-
can, featured vocalist.
Tickets for the dance are now on
sale at the Union desk, Follett's Book
Store and Wahr's Book Store.
The Union tap room will be re-
served after. 9 p.m. for those attend-
ing Capitalist Ball. Any campus or-
ganization with 10 or more members
attending the ball will be given a pri-
vate table in the tap room, it was an-
nounced by John Goodell, '41BAd.,
co-chairman of publicity.

Preview Proves
Pastel Parade Led
By Pink Shades
Call it posy pink or dusty rise, it':s
still pink that rings the bell of pop-
ularity ,and leads the pastel parade
into spring..
With the color decided upon, the
most important articles to apply it
to are skirts, sweaters and, since very
recently, blouses. These blouses,
which are so beautifully adaptable
to pastel flannel, feature long sleeves
and will probably relieve the empha-
sis on suits for springtime. But the
predominance of long-sleeved flan-
nel blouses doesn't mean that short-
sleeved silk shirts with trimly stitch-
ed cuffs have been deposed.
Big news in sweaters is that the
Sloppy Joe, which has been reigning
for the past few years. is on its way
out.
A really happy change is in skirts.
Pastel tweeds bring together such
new combinations, and are so sooth-
ing to the eye. These, along with
colored plaids or solid pastel skirts
are nearly all cut on swing lines,
with belted tops.
