Senate Releases First
Of True Case Histories
Editor's note: In conjunction with
the Senate's renewed campaign for
alumni scholarships The Daily is
publishing true case histories which
illustrate the gravity of the need.
This is the first case.
Miss C's stepfather is a Cana-
di'an war veteran minus one leg.
There are three younger children
in the family. The mother worked
in a restaurant while the daughter
went to high school. half time.
Miss C. graduated from high
school with honors and came here
on an Alumni scholarship. She
works for room and board with an
elderly couple who have eleven
boys rooming in the house. A
corner of the coal bin has been
boarded off for her room.
She made B in freshman Eng-
lish and three A's - including
Chemistry 5. Her job takes 28
hours a week. In addition she
takes care of children two nights
a week to supplement her income.
Her mother developed tuberculo-

Arizona by a local relief agency.
The three small children were dis-
tributed. This June the girl has
no home to go to. She received

His folks wanted him to follow
in his father's footsteps and become
a lawyer, but Cabell Galloway III
had other ideas. And today there are
few people in the country who have
not heard of Cab Calloway, "His
Hi-De-Highness of Ho-De-Ho."
Cab's songs, and his interpretations
of various tunes written by others,
are even more famous, particularly
"Minnie the Moocher," "The Reefer
Man," "Zaz Zuh Zaz," "The Scat
Song," "Minnie the Moocher's Wed-

His Hi-De-Highness Of Ho-De-Ho
Is Title Won By Cab Calloway

pearance next week playing at the
engineers' annual Slide Rule Ball
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, April
4, in the Union Ballroom.
Born on Christmas Day, 1907, in
Rochester, N.Y., Calloway received
his schooling in Baltimore, Md., where
his family moved when he was very
young. At the age of 16, he really
began 'his musical career singing in
the choir of the Bethlehem Metho-I
dist Church.
At first Cab was interested in law
and considered his music as a means
to that end. He joined his sister,
Blanch, in the cast of a colored show,
"Plantation Days," after his family
moved again-this time to Chicago.
His first big opportunity came
when he was working in the Sunset
Cafe in the Loop. One of the main
attractions was too ill to sing and
Cab took her place. His success was
so complete that he became official
understudy for the entire cast.
Later he became master of cere-
monies at the Sunset Cafe and still
later he became leader of the band
there, the Alabamians. During this
period he was studying at Crane bol-
lege but after another semester de-
cided that he could "make the human
race happier by giving it music than
by trying to keep it out of jail."
The young band leader left: the
Alabamians in New York to become
a singer again in an all-colored musi-
cal show "Connie's Hot Chocolates."
