Erwin, Protege Of Goodman,
To Play For Panhellenic Ball

Considered by many as one of the
"most outstanding trumpet players
in the nation," Pee Wee Erwin will
bring his orchestra to play at the an-"
nual Panhellenic Ball Friday in the
League Ballroom.
Born in 1913 in Falls City, Neb.,
Erwin's early ,musical experience
came from the limited opportunities
of playing in the high school orches-
tra and in the town band which per-
formed once a week in good weather
and none at all in bad.
In Haymes Band
After graduation from high school,
Erwin joined Joe Haymes' band in a
tour which led eventually to the Bo-
hemian "Village Barn" in New York.
Featured trumpet soloist with Isham
Jones was the next step up on the
ladder the following year, and then
a season playing at the outstanding
deb parties with Freddie Martin.
During the thirties a change in the
musical trend became visible as peo-
ple became swing-conscious. Two new
names became important in the
dance music world, Ray Noble and
Benny Goodman, and Erwin found
himself associated with both.

all records with his band from coast

that she doesn't slide down the

'Guardian Angel'Of Foresters' Ball Friday,
Is Paul Bunyan, Prevaricators' Brain -hild

Did you ever see a myth walking?
Well you will, or rather the evidence
that it has been walking, for a myth
is coming to town, especially to at-
tend the dance in his honor Friday
night at the Union.
Yes, you've guessed it, it's Paul
Bunyan, the great American myth,
who first started cutting and milling
lumber in Michigan's own Saginaw
Valley country. And it was here in
Michigan, that Paul, so stories say,
Vyith a mighty crew of workers and
his own great Blue Ox, invented log-
ging and dubbed it the finest and
most noble of occupations.
Mystery surrounds the giant's birth
and geneology, but most authors agree
that he was of French-Canadian,
birth and that the event took place
somewhere in Maine, requiring four-
teen storks because the child was so
Twenty Cows
Twenty cows were kept in the barn
to supply milk for young Paul, for
his parents could not feed him any
other way. Rapid growth and mis-
chievous pranks upon his neighbors
were the; main characteristics of his
And then came the great blue snow,
so the , mythologists say, which
brought Paul his Blue Ox. The snow
fell for days and covered everything
The women's archery club will
meet 7:30 p.m. today in Water-
man Gymnasium. The targets
will be up and members are re-
quested to bring their own arrows.
Entrance to the gym may be

entrance of Barbour Gymnasium.

and as Paul waded ankle deep in
search of firewood, he came upon the
young ox strandel and almost frozen.
Paul named it Babe and cared for
it tenderly, and the amazing thing
was that when it thawed out, the ox,
remained the blue color of the snow.,
And pet took after master, for Babe
grew to huge proportions and great
strength, so great that Paul would
hitch him to an entire logging tamp
and pull shacks, lumber, saw-mills
ahd all to a new location.
And here's the pay-off, Babe was
even hitched to logging roads to
straighten them out when Paul and
his companions were too tired to make
new ones!
Invented Logging
After inventing logging and logging
practices, he later ranged the entire
country in search of new timberlands
and new feats to perform. There are
many and varied accounts of these:
wherever Paul and Babe wandered,
their foot-prints filled with water and
became lakes. Paul dug the Grand
Canyon, levelled the plainstharvested
fields in a day . . no task was too
great for the patron saint of foresters.
The great era of forest exploitation
fs gone forever, but Paul and his Blue
Ox live on so vividly in the hearts of
all lumberjacks that for the past four
years Forestry students have given
the Paul Bunyan 'Formal!' The first
one was given in a barn at the Saline
Farms with a four piece orchestra
and from this modest beginning the
only informal 'formal' of the year has
Paul Will Be There
Yes, Paul will be there, and not only
in spirit Friday at the dance. Since
his exact size is much disputed, deco-
rations chairmen have decided that
twenty feet is plenty for Mr. Bunyan

. incidentally, the ballroom won't
stand anything any higherJ
A replica of the axe which Paul
used will be hmng from the ceiling,
while other logging tools used by for-
esters will decorate the walls. Murals
depicting various aspects of the field
of forestry will also be part of the
decmrations . . . They're making Paul
