Kenton, Newcomer, Enjoyed
'RapidClimb To Popularity;
Brown Won Chicago Ovations
Les Brown, his "Band of Renown",
and Stan Kenton and his orchestra
will share the spotlight at Victory
Ball to be held from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.,
Friday, Feb. 5, in the Intramural
Brown was last heard in Ann Arbor
when he played for the second night
of J-Hop last year. The manner in
which he was received by those at-
tending that dance greatly influenced
the decision to have him return this
Featured artists in his organization
are Hal Derwin, Roberta Lee, and
"Butch" Stone. Brown is now playing
a theatre engagement in Chicago af-
ter being in Hollywood for the past
few months, and is being seen
throughout the country in the film
production "Seven Days Leave".
Kenton Popular Newcomer
Stan Kenton, a newcomer to the
realm of noted musicians, will have
his initial introduction to Ann Arbor
at the Victory Ball. During the sum-
mer and fall of 1942 Kenton succeed-
ed in gaining popularity with college
groups and the "younger set" in gen-
eral, who favored his interpretations
of the "sweet" and the "hot".
Playing for the sailors at the Navy
Pier in Chicago, Kenton received a
greater ovation for his offerings than
any other band they have had this
year, and that includes some of the
conceded "best" in the country. This
was the same week that he and his
orchestra played three benefits in one
seven day period, plus his regular en-
gagement in Chicago.
Dolly Mitchell and Red Dorris, vo-
calists, are featured by Kenton. Dor-
ris is best known for his renditions of
the "blues".

available tickets which will be divided

terrer, '44E, has announced. Applica-

Miss Bondfield Chides Americans
For Former Lack Of Leadership

America's return to isolation and1
our refusal to take world leadership
after the first World War is perhaps
one of the reasons we are now fight-
ing for our lives, believes the Right
Honorable Margaret Bondfield, for-;
mer English minister of labor.
Starting her long career in the
working world at 13 as the teacher
of 48 little boys and reaching fame
as the first woman cabinet member
in the history of England, Miss Bond-
field is now carrying on her interest
in social work with tours in the Unit-
ed States as an authority on English
war organization.
Desired to Aid Workers
An ardent and active supporter of
trade unions, Miss Bondfield learned
a great deal about the needs of the
laborers while working as a shop girl
in London establishments. It was
while she was in one of these shops
that Miss Bondfield came into contact
with trade unions.
Seeing an opportunity to help alle-
viate some of the troubles of the
workers, she joined immediately.
From then on she climbed higher and
higher into each stratum of official-
dom until she reached Parliament.
Miss Bondfield tells many interest-
ing and revealing stories of incidents
that occurred while she was minister
of labor. She describes how, at the
end of the last war, the German
workmen volunteered to come over to
France and repair war damages in
part payment of the terrible repara-
tions imposed. The French trade un-
ions accepted and were ready to go
to work beside them, but the Paris
politicians refused the offer flatly,
preferring to make money out of the
Tells of Travels
She also told of travelling through
Bavaria shortly'after the war with a
friend, and of stopping at the house
of a peasant woman. The woman,
upon learning that the visitor was
English, called her five children, all
company the application. The post-
cards will be used to notify those al-
lotted tickets. Tickets will be placed
on sale Friday.
Identification cards must be pre-
sented and application must be made
in person.

looking half-starved, to shake hands3
with her, saying, "The English people
are not our enemies. Only kaisers are
The woman later on told about how
she had sold her horse that morning
for marks that wouldn't buy a fence
paling by nightfall, so fast did money
values fall. "If only the English would
stay," the woman kept saying, for
Bavarians had suffered deeply at the
hands of the Senegalese soldiers.
Miss Bondfield feels very strongly
that the conservative policy of imper-
ial preference, after the party's return
to power after the war (on the false
grounds that the Labor Party was
responsible for the depression) helped
to sow the seeds of another conflict.
Advocates Socialism
Her political philosophy is one of
evolutionary socialism, that is, "We
build on what we've got." She wants
to see social insurance and socialized
medicine firmly established in the
world's social structure. "This is a
revolutionary period," she added. "We
can't stop the revolution, but we can
shape our institutions to meet it."
Miss Bondfield says the chief dif-
ference between English and Ameri-
can labor organizations is that they
stem from different sources. The Eng-
lish pioneers were Wesleyan Metho-
dists, religious people. Here, she says,
our individualism makes us believe
that after a leader has helped his peo-
ple, he's entitled to take what he can
get. She has done some extensive stu-
dying of New Deal activities and labor
legislation; this being her seventh
trip to America.
Advises for Careers
When asked what was the best way
to pursue a career, Miss Bondfield
answered, "I can only claim that for
myself, I did not turn away from op-
portunity. The preparation of one
task prepared me for the next."
"One has to start on his own door-
step . . . accepting responsibility to
do the little things, so that he will be
able to get to and recognize the big
Collegiate Sorosis announces the
election of its new officers. They are:

riet Skinner, '45, vice-president; Lou-
ise F'orbush, '45, secretary and Bea

Coeds To Collect Old
Silk, Nylon Hosiery
To Make Parachutes
House presidents of league houses,
cooperative houses, dormitories, and

Starting on January 18, there will
be someone to collect the hose from
