Student Composers Provide
Sparkling Rhythms For JGP

Music-that all important stimu-t
lant to any class production-for
JGP's "No Questions Asked" has been
finally disclosed as being a harmoni-I
ous composite of works of some of the,
well-known student composers on
The two songs which no doubt will
prove to be the hits of the show are
"Why" by Al Waterstone, '43SM,
music, and Earl D'Arcy Brent, '42BAd,
and Jack Reed, lyrics. An arrange-
ment has already been made by Gor-
don Hardy and his orchestra, who
featured a four part vocal chorus of
junior women spotting Irene Mendel-
sohn as soloist last weekend at the
League. The vocal arrangement was
done by Waterstone and will be re-
peated with Hardy's orchestra this
weekend at the League.
There's A Love Song
The entire plantation scene of "No
Questions Asked" is built around "'Til
The Day Is Nightdwritten by Clar-
ence Kopsic, '42BAd-it is a melan-
choly love song absolutely guaranteed
to leave its print in your mind. Solo-
ist will be Marian Brown whose low,
throaty, super-blues voice will be
supported by a chorus of 20. The en-
tire crew will be featured this week-
end with Bill Sawyer and orchestra.
Gordon Hardy, in his own inimit-
able style, composed a Mexican tango
(which to date is nameless), a slow,
easy and plenty rhythmic for Molly
Carney who will sing the solo un-
supported by a background.
Waterstone Is In
For the casual reader it would seem
that Al Waterstone really hit the
jack-pot with this year's production.
In addition to "Why," Waterstone is
the musical power behind "Waltz-
ing With You" with vocalist Polly
Drake who composed the lyrics; "The
Call of the Stage" with Russ Berg
responsible for the lyrics and Leanor
Grossman responsible for the voice.
The cowboy chorus was also writ-
ten by Waterstone, the arrangement
by Al Burt (who incidently, for the
convenience of everyone concerned,
did all the arranging) and the lyrics,
'tis said, originated somewhere with-
Wolf' To Have
Little Chance
At Coke Bar
Another Coke Bar is scheduled for
today with a few slight changes made
by Bob Templin, '43, general chair-
man, concerning chief hostess, sec-
ondary hostesses and a method of
obliterating the so-called "Wolves."
"From 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in.
the main ballroom again with dozens
of beautiful hostesses and many of
the records of the best bands with
their best arrangements of latest
tunes"-a candid shot of the Coke
"As for the 'wolves'-it's very sim-
ple really," Templin was heard to
have remarked-"We'll simply an-
nounce a few non-cut dances and
that'll fix 'em."
So what could be better? A swell
place to spend the afternoon, in
pleasant company with no longer any
fear of loosing your date to the
wolves for the whole time.
Coffee, tea and ginger ale will be
served along with cookies on the ter
race. Hostesses will be Harriet Boyer,
'45, Joyce Collins, '45, Peggy Ross,
'44, Marge McCabe, '45, Martha Op-
sion, '44, Virginia Stover, '43, Fran
Tripp, '45, Ruth Maloney, '45, Be-
atrice Nickoll, '43, Pat Heil, '45, and
Mary Ann Berger, '45.1
The list continues with Pat Pal-

in the general confusion of the music
Grace Miller, '42, has repeated her
success with last year's theme song
by writing both music and lyrics to
"No Questions Asked" plus a dance-
able tune, "My Song," which will be
spottednalong with four sprightly
Credit for other tunes which will be
used to keep the dancers in step and
steppin' high are "I'm Bored" written
by Walter Evans, '44, music, and Al-
lan Axelrod, '43, lyrics; "Daughter of
the Choo-Choo" also by Evans, and
"One From Two" by M. G. O'Neil.
It's Purposely Corny
The "Soap" song--which is pur-
posely corny-was written by Jean
Crandell, music, and Axelrod, lyrics.
While we're at it we might just as
well dispense with Axelrod-the ver-
satile young gentleman also wrote
music and words for "Wenches of
the -Wildwood," the "Reporter's
Chant" and the words for "Eleanor,"
along with collaborator Kay Ruddy,
Well, that's all there is at this
point but rumor has it that a lot of
songs are added and revamped from
the moment of initial dress rehearsal.
We'll list the members of the choruses
again just to make them feel good

Committee Reveals
SeI lout Of Tickets
For Slide Rule Ball
"Sorry, but we warned you!"
That was all the Slide Rule Ball
committee members could say to
would-be ticket-buyers Sunday, for
in three days of intensive selling not
only were the 350 tickets originally
available sold out, but 25 extra "re-
serve" tickets were gone as well.
The sale, probably one of the most
successful yet recorded for a cam-
pus dance, started Thursday, when
in four hours the committee sold
nearly 250 tickets in the lobby of
the East Engineering Building.
In a similar period the next day the
number was jumped to 330, and the
remaining tickets were placed on
general sale at the Union desk.
"Since then I've had so many calls
from engineers wanting tickets that
I've had to take what few are left
off general sale," committee chair-
man Burr J. French, '42E, reported.
"We're completely sold out, and there
will be absolutely no more tickets
French laid the phenomenal suc-
cess of the ticket sale to the fact
that trumpeter Bunny Berigan has
been named to appear on the band-
stand at the Ball, and also to the
fact that the Slide Rule Ball has
always been a popular dance in the
Mu Phi Epsilon Has
Initiation For Five
Mu Phi Epsilon, women's honorary
music society, formally initiated five
Sunday, at the home of an alumna,
Mrs. Dana Seeley.
The new initiates are Mildred
Stern, '43SM, Frances Peterson, '42
SM, Jane Crecraft, '42SM, Betty Lou
James, '43SM, and Violet Oulbegian,
'43SM. After the initiation a sup-
per was held at the Union and was
followed by a musical program of
two piano numbers by Joan Stevens
and James Wolfe.

A BreakI For Hardy.
But Hardy, who has a good band, a good personality,
a good vocalist and probably more friends than anyone
else on campus, must take all the risk. He has no con-
tract, but pays the rental of the ballroom himself and
although this is beginning to sound sort of like an editor-
ial, the ultimate cause of the whole subject is selfishness.
We're just as sick as every other woman on this campus
of being told to support the League and plug the agri-
cultural shows which have been parading under the
names of musical organizations, there, and we'd like to
keep a band that we'd be glad to plug. Every girl on this campus is willing
to support the League, but it might not be a bad idea if the League would
support itself.
