'Tis Better To Catch The Cold Bug
Before He Catches Up With You

Contrary to popular opinion, a book
under the pillow gives you nothing
but a stiff neck. In other words a
book in the hand is worth two in the
When translated, all that means
is that finals are closer than ever be-
fore, and studying (better known as
cramming) should begin today and
that doesn't mean "manana." The
little cold bug has already done more
than its share on campus, and it will
be only too glad to catch any un-
suspecting individuallin the next two
weeks when he or she has set an all
time record of no sleep for umpteen
hours and a half. So the best bet
is to start right now to read the last
six hundred pages of history or the
economics syllabus.
See Health Service
Health Service is doing its best to
pack 'em in, so it is very necessary
that every student cooperate while
doing himself a favor and keep up his
resistance against colds.
If one is so unfortunate as to get
stung by the cold bug, the sooner he
throws it off the better. It is very
important that one in this condition
drop over to Health Service for a
little check up and to get well-stocked
with gargle pills, nose drops, and
cough medicines. He should immedi-
ately get much more than the re-

important among the cures, he should

Persist In Resisting
Better than any prescription or ad-
vice is the old story of keeping the
resistance up, and the cold bug away
from your doorway, especially when
you are so anxious (?) to be present
at your final examinations. Keep
away from the friend in your house
with a cold, no matter how much you
want to bull with him or cheer him
up. Keep out of the sick room en-,
tirely! -
Other ouncps of prevention are as
follows: Sleep in a well-ventilated,
but not frigid room, wear warm: dry
clothing at all time;, and get plenty
of sleep. This may all sound like a
lot of bother and an impossibility
during our speeded up exam period,

Bob Bartlow
Reveals Final
Negro Band Combines Jazz
With Smooth Syncopation;
Brown's Bond Hailed As Great
In spite of the change in date and
the headaches over broken contracts,
Jimmie Lunceford, Les Brown, and
Orrin Tucker have been procured to
play for the 1943 J-Hop to be held
Feb. 6 and 7, Bob Bartlow, '43, music
chairman announced yesterday.
Jimmie Lunceford and his 15 piece
negro band will swing forth in the
Sports Building, Feb. 6,, the formal
night of J-Hop. He will be coupled
with Orrin Tucker. Saturday, Feb.
7, Les Brown supported by his 18
musicians will stand alone as the
musical attraction for the informal
night of J-Hop.~
Music 'Hits The Spot'
Whether one approves of swing
music or not, Lunceford's orchestra
will hit the spot as it isn't limited
to one particular type of music. He
blares out the most blatant type of
jazz, with screaming horns and
nerve-shattering drums,'swings into
smooth syncopation and then by con-
trast offers a bit of "sweet music."
So versatile is he, he hardly has a
distinctive style, being more imita-
tive of the better known bands.
Lunceford has some good enter-
tainers with him, all of which made
him particularly successful at Cor-
nell, Purdue, Northwestern and Chi-
cago Universities and at Williams,
Clemson, Amherst and .Dartmouth
Colleges where he has been featured.
As one critic says: "For pure unadul-
terated rhythnyc noise, the boys from
deep West Dallas carry off the baton."
Coming from the Blackhawk Cafe
in Chicago, where he broadcast night-
ly on a coast to coast hookup, Les
Brown and his orchestra combine all
the qualities necessary for a great
dance band.
Brown's Vocalists Tops
Brown,. one of the greatest young
bands in the country, offers more in
the vocal /department than a lot of,
his more noted batoneering col-
leagues. Herb Muse sings a fine bal-
lad and is at home on the rhythmic
ditties likewise, and Betty Bonney,
feminine vocalist, has a voice and
manner to match her attractive ap-
Besides appearing on a popular
radio program, Les Brown was wel-
comed with open arms by swing fans
in Todd's Theater Cafe in Chicago
and the Arcadia Ballroom in New
York. Perhaps he is best known for
his sensational rendition of "March
Slav" which was pronounced the best
jazz arrangement of any symphonic
composition at the hands of a dance
band in months.
