Exams Cause
Tense Nerves
In Ann Arbor
"Paris in the fourth month of theI
war is an attractive, comfortable,
almost normal city with an intimate,
quasi-country charm" begins an
article in the current Vogue entitled
"Paris-with the Men on Leave."
Ann Arbor in the weekend before
the struggle is an attractive, com-
fortable, abnormally quiet town with
a, tense, "wish-we'd-studied-before"
atmosphere. And this little epic pre-
sents a situation perhaps not par-
allel to that of the French capital, but
near enough to the idea of conflict-
mn versus books--to be titled "All
Quiet On the Social Front."
Activities of man, woman and fresh-
man must be necessarily limited be-
cause of the few entertainments
Two out of the three normal week-
end activities-fraternity dances and
the League and Union ballrooms--
have stepped aside for the academic
life, and only the Union. remains
open to entice the would-be all-A
student from his books.
"The show must go on" and with
this slogan in mind the cinema qpn-
tinues daily shows.
But for companionship and con-
vivality-a bit subdued we admit but
nevertheless a joy of accomplishment
those who would "be seen" with the
ones .who "are seen" must return to
library and study hall. r

"Swing? Why it's nothing more!
than music of 20 years ago dressed
up. In five years or less I predict
there won't be any "swing" bands."
And so Ted Fio Rito gives voice to
words which again precipitate that
modern argument: To swing or not to
With Tommy Dorsey, an ardent
advocate of swing and a very success-
ful one at that, collaborating at J-
Hop with Fio Rito, students of mo-
dern music will have an excellent op-
portunity to decide for themselvesJ
upon the merits of swing versusJ
sweet. Fio Ritosutilizees the flute,
muted brasses and light percussiond
effects to sweeten his music and take
the "jazz" out of the hotter rhythms.
Dorsey on the other hand "jives" far
and wide with his. faied. trombone.!
Even Dorsey's sweet arrangements!
have that pervasive element of swing.
Viola Substitutes For Violins.
One of Fio Rito's important inno-
vations in the instrumental makeup
of his outfit consists of his substi-
tution of a single viola in place of
three violins. He believes that the
one viola improves upon the three
violins by lending deeper and more
resonant tonal qualities and at the
same time"blending better with the
brasses. Fio. Rito also relegates the
saxophone, considered by most or-
chestra leaders as the "hottest of all
musical instruments, to a back posi-
tion in favor of the viola.
Featured along with Fio Rito and
his exceptional keyboard work will,
be "Candy" Candido, "The Little Man
with the Thousand Voices:,," Novoline
Payne, vocalist, Frank Flynn - bari-
tone and drummer, and "Jam Ses-
sions" .by the Seven Swingaroos.
Dorsey Defends win
pressed his views as to swing by stat-
ing, "Swing" has always been with
us. Its discovery by the public as
a word is recent, but musicians for
years have used the .term and exer-
cised its meaning." Dorsey has con-
centrated his interest on the trom-
bone;- and in popular music circles
has been named as ace trombonist
of the time. He can make it sound
like a trumpet, cornet, organ, cello
and violin, and this certainly indi-


cates his proficiency on the instru-
Frank Sinatra, who was former>
featured with Harry James is now
the featured vocalist with Dorsey's
orchestra. Along with Sinatra, the
Dorsey Quartette, famous for its vo-
calizations will demonstrate how
"swing" should be swung.
For those who like sweet music,
J-Hop will be the best place to hear
sweet music on the night of Feb. 9
when Fio Rito plays, and for those
who like swing, there is still J-Hop
with Tommy Dorsey. And the argu-
ment will still rage long after Dorsey
and Fio Rito leave Ann Arbor: To
swing or not to swing.
Your Hudson Seal
Or New iMk Coat
May Be Muskrat
Did you know that 800,000 Ameri-
can'women bought new fur coats this
winter? Were you one of the lucky
ones? If you were thus fortunate,
you contributed to the $350,000,000
spent on fur during 1939.
But did you know what you were
getting for your money? Gone are
the days when mink looked like mink
and muskrat resembled only its orig-
inal self. Now only about ten per
cent of the furs sold closely resemble
the original animal.
Most Popular Furs
Most popular of the furs which
aren't meddled with are leopard, fox
and k rn. o make muskrat appeal
to those of us who have pocketbooks'
of copper and tastes of gold, furriers
pbrush the color on the skins and the
lfeathers are applied with stripings.
We are informed that there are
:ninety separate steps in transferring
muskrat skin into the stunning Hud-
son seal coat so popular with the more
sophisticated woman. First a layer
of skin is scraped from the under
side of the pelt, and then the pelt is
put into a beating machine where it
is pounded soft.
Fur's Back Greased
The back of the fur is greased, na-
tural oils are injected into the pelt,
and impurities are removed. And so
is famous Hudson seal created in the
factories of the furriers while most
purchasers blissfully imagine the ex-
quisite coat which they arc now
proudly wearing once protecting the
back of an enormous seal in the freez-
ing Arctic.
