Michigan Today


Leading Band
Will Feature
Mimes' Song
irstUnion Opera Composition
On Coast-To-Coast Network
Will Be Sung By Tex Beneke
The nation's top-ranking band will
honor Michigan's top-ranking stu-
dent composers with a serenader to
Michigan at 10 p.m. today over radio
station WJR.
Glenn Miller and his orchestra will
feature its 15 minute program to-
night with a rendition of "A Dream
And I," written by Gordon Hardy,
Grad., and Charles Bowen, '41, for
the 1941 Mimes Union Opera. This
is the first time in the history of
the opera that a student-written
song has been played by a big-name
band on a coast-to-coast hookup.
Tribute Will Be Paid
T night's four-minute tribute to
Hard~y and Bowen is the result of
two weeks of nerve-wracking work
on the part of the composers to get
the tune ready-telegrams, long dis-
tance calls and filing releases to CBS
rand sundry other- places.
"A Dream and I" received a Miller
performance' during Senior Ball last
year when it was sung by Chan Pin-
ney, '41. Since then it's been in Mil-
ler's cold storage room unpublishedj
and ignored, while Hardy and Bower
lived in the confidence' that some
day Miller would bring it out and'
publish it. And now during his salute
fto the University of Michigan, the
song will receive the public approval
of Miller and band..
Team Is Dissolved
Bowen and Hardy have worked as
a team until last year when Bowen
interrupted the team's certain fu-
ture by graduating. He is a member
/of Phi Ofgma Kappa and is now with
radio station WCAR in Pontiac.
Hardy, a graduate student in the
School of Music, and a member of
Theta Chi, is prominent in the musi-
cal world of student productions,
having contributed mans hit tunes to
both JGP and Mimes Opera. This
year, Hardy worked as music chair-
man of "Full House" for ;which he
wrote 12 out of the 23 songs in the
Ma rriage Planned
The engagement .and approaching
marriage of Betty Ann Chaufty,
'41SM, to Henry Newton Ohrt,
'4 lAd, .was announced by her, par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin R. Chaufty.
Miss Chaufty is a member of Sigma
Alpha Iota and served as music chair-
man for the Junior Girls Play and on
League committees.

Chapter IV of Stewart Beach's
book, "Racing Start" ougt to sound'
familiar to Michigan freshmen. Ty,
it seems, has a room in Randall House
of South Quad, and is beginning his
first year at a big midwestern uni-

swimming team.
There's No Mistaking
Even someone who didn't know that'
Stewart Beach, '22, spent last semes-

Start" has its setting here, though all
the buildings and events are faintly
disguised in different names. From
the president's welcome speech to lan-

"Racing Start" is Beach's first piece
of longer fiction, though far from his
first experience in writing. After re-
ceiving his A.B. he went East and
has Lved in New York and Boston ever
since, writing, editing and teaching.'
Besides writing several successful
short stories and a broadway play he
acted as managing editor of House
Beautiful for five years.
Returned To Campus
When Beach was commissioned to
write a boy's novel about a freshman's
experience in a big university, he was
not satisfied with his memories of the
campus in 1922. Returning last year
he set about to absorb the atmosphere
