midnight today in the'League Ball-

which is an outstanding event on anyl

Celebrates Founding
The Triad, which is a celebration
of the founding of the three frater-
nities at Miami University, located at
Oxford, O., was revived on this cam-
pus two years ago, after a lapse of
ten years or more, and it is well on
the way to becoming an annual affair=
The original purpose of the Triad
was to further cooperation and
friendship between the three houses
while at Miami University.
Pins Are Decorations -
According to the committee in
charge of arrangements for the
dance, decorations will consist mainly
of large replicas of each fraternity's
pin, to be mounted in the panels
around the League Ballroom.
The committee for this year's af-
fair is made up of a representative
from each of the three houses. Buehl
Morley, '43, represented Sigma Chi;
William Angst, '42E, answered for'
Beta Theta Pi; and Bud Rudy, '44,

Reggie Childs To Play Friday
AtOdonto Ball In League

A committee made up of 78
verine members are donating
efforts to a dance to be held


9 p.m. to midnight today in the Wol-
verine Building.
As a result of their services, and
since the food and use of the build-
ing ' are to be contributed by the
Wolverine, the gross proceeds will go
to the Bomber-Scholarship Fund.
Chairmen Named
"Bomber Scholarship Dance" com-
mittee has at its head Ed Sosnowa-
ski, '43. Assisting him are Jerry Mos-
cowitz, '45E. Paul Gardner, '44, Mur-
ray Gottlieb, '42, Ted Astley, '43,
with whom the Wolverine Board of
Directors, headed by John Schiebe,
'42M, president, is cooperating.
Many Ann Arbor merchants have
become interested in the project and
have contributed funds which will
be used for programs for the dance.
Indorsed By Board
The War Board is reported to be
whole-heartedly behind the project
and is inxious that it be supported by
the various organizations on campus.
The dance is an all-campus affair,
open to every one.
The price of the ticket will include
refreshments. and continuous dane-

"The Rolling Styles" of Reggie
Childs, which will become a reality
at the eighth annual Odonto Ball
which will be held from 9 p.m. to
1 a.m. Friday, May 1 in the main ball-
room of the League, characterize the
life of the orchestra leader as well as
his music.
Born in England, his musical talent
was given early encouragement by
his mother who was a prominent
choir singer. He won a vocal schol-
arship in London and was sent to
sing in the choir of the American
Cathedral in Paris.
Turned To Violin
Thus the "rolling" began, and when
his juvenile tenor voice began to
change, it really "cracked" so that
there was nothing else to do but turn
his musical talents to the violin which
he had studied previously in Lon-
To perfect his technique on this
instrument, Childs attended the Paris
Conservatory of Music for seven
years. Then, when his parents moved
to Toronto, Canada, the "rolling" be-
gan on the American continent.
Organized Band
When he finally decided to organ-
ize his own orchestra, Childs se-
cured engagements at hotels and
vaudeville houses in Canada, and in
this country, playing at the El Fey
Club where Texas Guinan was mis-
tress of ceremonies and Ruby Keeler
was in the dancing chorus.
Rogers and Hart, two of the famous
song-writers of today, came to Childs
for advice and criticism of their first
song-writing efforts. And, Harry Ar-
cher who wrote, "I Love You" tore up
the original three times before Childs
was able to persuade him to use it

in the musical comedy "Jesse James"
-p.s. the song became the hit of the
show and of the nation.
Went On Air
Child's bookings took him to the
San Diego Country Club, and it was
there that he broadcast his first pro-
gram on the airwaves. The manage-
ment of the Hotel Roosevelt in New
York City heard one of his broad-
casts, decided that his musical style
was just what they wanted and wired
him an offer to play in their Grill.
Although his contract was only for
three months, he scored such a hit
that he remained for over a year.
While there, he took an attractive
youngster from the chorus of a
Broadway show and placed her be-
fore his band as vocalist. After
coaching and training and some
months with the orchestra, she was
snatched up by the motion picture
scouts and whisked off to Hollywood
where she went on to stardom. Her
name? Dixie Dunbar.
Orchestra Is Adaptable
Always alert to the country's musi-
cal pulse beat, Child's orchestra is
the type of musical aggregation
whose qualities can be quickly adap-
ted to the changing tastes of his audi-
ence. From his solo /violinist days
with Paul Whiteman, Vincent Lopez
and Wayne King, Childs has cap-
tured a bit of the showmanship of
each famous bandleader-swing from
one, syncopation from another, show-
manship from the third.
Featured with Childs in his ap-
pearance at Odonto will be Betty
Carter, Neil Courtney and Mal and
Paul Carley, plus the "Three C's"
trio as soloists.

Alpha Xi Delta

Over one hundred representatives
from Alpha Xi Delta sorority will
meet here in a Province Convention
over the weekend.
Events will begin this morning
with a panel to be held at the League
on "Women in Defense" led by Mrs.
Leslie Putnam of Grosse Pointe Park,
during which representatives will re-
port what their chapters have been
doing in the national war effort.
Other panels will also be held, which

son will address the delegates on
"Life in England."
During the afternoon there will be

University Musical Society is in a
quandry; and, the Office of the
Dean of Women is in a similar "stew."
Their problem might be solved by the
individual effort of the residents of
Ann Arbor.
With May Festival, there is always
a great influx of people from all
parts of the country and most of
them have a temporary residence
here for the "duration" of the con-
cert series. This year, there will be
a serious shortage of rooms because,
firstly, the University admitted 150
to 200 more women this year than
last (a fact which is of considerable
importance in a town of this size),
and secondly, the Willow Run fac-
tory workers have rented a consid-

erable number of rooms here.
Because of their capacity of pro-
viding the campus coeds with room-
ing facilities, the Dean of Women's
Office has contacts with all the house
heads in town. This body has acted,
purely through courtesy, as an infor-
mation center for women who have
sought rooms but are not connected
with the University. Thus, quite
naturally, the responsibility for find-
ing rooms for May Festival visitors
has fallen on their shoulders.
Charles A. Sink, president of the
University Musical Society which
sponsors May Festival, is quite con-
cerned with this problem and has
requested that the Dean's Office act
as a clearing house for inquiries for
rooms and for the information of
available rooms.
Said Mr. Sink, "Although we can
not determine the exact number who
will be seeking rooms on May 6, we
are already besieged with requests
for temporary lodgings. We have
in turn, directed these requests to
the Office of the Dean of Women
which is doing all possible to locate
rooms that would be available for
those four days.
"We would be very grateful if
residents of Ann Arbor, who have
empty rooms suitable for May Festi-
val guests, would file their names
