Handsome Buddy Rogers Turns
From Mule Tender To Maestro

It's a long step from tending mules
to becoming the number one flutter-
beat of the nation and the leader of
a swing band, but Buddy Rogers,
handsome and still as magnetic as
when he captured the feminine heart
of the nation in "Wings," has man-
aged to make the transfer success-
Currently appearing at the Mich-
igan Theatre in Ann Arbor, the pop-
ular maestro recalls when passage for
a trip to Europe meant playing nurse-
maid to a pack of mules all the .way
across the Atlantic--a let-dbwn, any
way you look at it, for the most prom-
ising young journalist at the Univer-
sity of Kansas.
Rogers started his musical career
at the University of Kansas where he
organized a five-piece band which
played for the local fraternity and
sorority parties. Reports of his ex-
traordinary appeal soon reached the
Hollywood talent scouts, for within
a short time after his graduation,
Jesse Lasky had signed him to a
movie contract.
Married for three years now, Rog-
ers talks continually about his wife;
Lindquist, Miss Ethel McCormick,
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Oakes, Mr. and
Mrs. E. C. Pardon, Mr. and Mrs. S. G.
Waltz, Mr and Mrs. H.A.K. Whitney,
Mrs. Beatrice L. Giard, Mrs. Virginia
M. Harriman and Mrs. K. Herdman.
Concluding the list are Mrs. Wool-
sey'Hunt, Mrs. Alfred O. Lee, Mrs.
Laura D. Niles, Mrs. Dane W. Popple-
ton, Mrs. Martha L. Ray, Mrs. Phillip
McH. Wygant, Mr. and Mrs. P. B.
Harwood, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Brown;
Mr. Melton E. Cornelius, Mr. and
Mrs. C. A. Hardy, Mr. and Mrs. W. P.
Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. Norman
Hughes, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Johnson,
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Kramer, Mr. F.
A. LaBelle and Miss V. E. LaBelle,
Mr. and Mrs. George Ruehle; Mrs.
G. F. Sibley, Mrs. Geraldine Tobey
and Mr. and Mrs. Ben Wirtchafter.

Mary Pickford, who only recently re-
turned to New York after helping
Eleanor Roosevelt in the campaign
against infantile paralysis. Rogers
recalls that the script-writers of
"Wings" first introduced him to Miss
Pickford, and shortly after they were
cast together in "My Best Girl."
