In answer to Gordon's renditions
of "Ferryboat Serenade" and "I Am
An American," he was chosen the
"band of the year" by the operators
of the coin-machines, the "poor

this he was asked to play at the an-
nual convention held by the coin-
machine operators in Chicago--the
town in which he first started.
There was a threat to Gray's fu-

clarinet and saxophone to express
himself in the "classics," but he had
a different idea. There was a pickup
band in a neighboring town that
played "jazz," and this was where
Gordon's interest lay. But papa ob-
jected, and Gray gave in. However,
after a try with a concert group he
revolted and formed his own outfit
named the "Pretzel Five." From this
point there was just a short step re-,
maining to his engagement in Chii-

mittee members by anyone on cam-
