Sawyer's Band
Gv'es Members
Basic Training
Campus 'Symphony In Rhythm'
Will Play For Union Formal;.
Plan To Build Scholarship Fund
Bill Sawyer, and his "Symphony in
Rhythm," a band with a purpose and
a goal, will play for the Union Formal,
to be held from 9 p. m. to midnight
next Friday in the Union ballroom.
From scattered parts of the country
Bill Sawyer has gathered his present
organization which he calls an "All-
American Band," established for'the
purpose of providing a proving-
ground for young musicians who want
professional experience.
Recruited Young Men
The entire summer was spent in
recruiting young men who were inter-
ested in playing for the sake of music
itself, and for the opportunity of de-
veloping their ability. From Chatta-
nooga, Tenn., Chicago, Buffalo, and
Pennsylvania players have been col-
lected into a group which campus
opinion indicates is the best band the
Union has ever presented. "For four
years I have been playing at the
Union, and every year my group keeps
building-like a rolling snowball,"
Sawyer says.
The goal of the Union orchestra, is
"to develop a permanent position and
a permanent fund for young musi-
cians from all over the country, to
enable these musicians to study in
the University's School of Music, and,
at the same time, provide them with
professional training that they could
get nowhere else."
Improve Professional Attitude
The orchestra is striving constantly
to improve the organization to such
an extent that the young players can
adjust rapidly. They gain experience
in reading exclusively from manu-
script arrangement, and they improve
their professional attitude.
The orchestra desires to become a
scholarship organization, providing
an opportunity for worthy musicians
to obtain their musical schooling by
meeting the expenses through playing
in a professional group. It has begun
to realize this ambition, for, since
beginning to play for the Union dan-
ces, the orchestra has been made up
entirely of young men trying to get a
musical education. This unique ar-
rangement has proven to be a "gold-
mine" to these young musicians, for
almost every one of them would not
be able to be in school if it weren't
for the work they get in the orchestra.
When Sawyer came to the Union
there were eleven men in the group.
The budget has now been increased to
provide this opportunity to fifteen
men and a girl.
Music Is Alive Here
Sawyer is intensely interested in
providing this opportunity for young
musicians and in his musical work
here, for he believes that "music is
alive in Ann Arbor." The University
of Michigan is the only place which
has aided an experiment of this type
to be successful.
While many talented players have
been attracted into this organization,
it is realized that the vast field has
not even been tapped, and it is from
this field that Sawyer hopes to per-
fect his "All-American band."

'Music Is Essential In Today's
World,' Says Gladys Swarthout

"Music is playing a more important
part in the world today than it has
ever played before," is the belief of
Gladys Swarthout, who sang for the
Ann Arbor audience yesterday at Hill
"Music is one of the things that
our armed forces are fighting for.
More destructive to their morale
than the terrors of war would be to
learn that the things which they
loved in their youth were being ne-
glected at home."
- Husband Is In Service
Miss Swarthout would, also, dele-
gate to music and the other arts the
duty of refreshing the minds of the
men and women who are doing their
utmost behind the lines.
This noted singer is speaking from
a trustworthy source when she com-
ments on the desires of the "boys
at the front," as her husband, Frank
Chapman, is serving the United
States as a captain in the Marine
Corps. He has given up his career
as a baritone and his work with his
wife to serve his country. "This was
a difficult step for both of us, said
Miss Swarthout," as we always
worked and played together."
She Is "Doing Her Part"
Miss Swarthout is, herself, doing
everything that is humanly possible
to aid in the war effort. Singing at
benefits, at army camps, and for
every charity function that she can
possibly include in her crowded
schedule, this star of opera, screen,
and radio is "doing her part."
She firmly believes that every
member of the theatrical profession
keenly feels the present crisis and is
eager to do everything he or she
can. "In fact," she said, "many of
them are attempting more than is
physically possible, if they wish to
maintain their health." Not only are
they working hard at their jobs as
entertainers, which are important in
maintaining the morale of the peo-
ple, but they are working evenings,
after the theatres close, for the USO,
the Stage Door Canteen, and other
such functions.
When asked what she would ad-

vise young singers to do, who are
planning on going into operatic work,
Miss Swarthout answered that she
would advise them to do their bit in
war work, in place of following their
careers, for the next year or two.
Since the European field is closed
both to students and performers, it
would be advisable to wait until the
opportunity for young singers is bet-
ter. "There is always time, when you
are young; and a year or two at this
time can be more profitably spent
in other work." Miss Swarthout be-
lieves that this is the course she
would follow if she were faced with
this problem.
