Bob Chester Prefers Bus Rides,
One-Nighters to Life of Luxury

Scoin of one of America's wealthi-'
est families, Bob Chester will bring
his "rhythms of tomorrow" orchestraI
to play for the Army-Navy Ball, to
be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday,
Jan. 22, at the Sports Building.
Bob, whose step-father is Albert
Fisher, of Detroit, has preferred one-
nighters, hotel stops and bus rides,
to the life of ease to which he could
have been entitled. While attending
University of Dayton, Chester first
became interested in the masters of
modern music. Upon graduation, he
struck out on his own, and landed a
job with Paul Specht's band. While
playing with various other radio and
recording orchestras, Bob's saxo-
phone playing came to be considered
among the best in the country.
Baseball 'Giant'
In 1935, after assembling a crew of
unknown musicians, Chester, as band
leader, received his first booking at
the Detroit Athletic Club and stayed
there eight months. From then on
the climb to fame was easy for the
leader, who may be described aptly
as "six feet two, with eyes of blue."
Chester's talents don't end with
music by any means. Star baseball
player while in college, he nearly
chose the diamond career in prefer-
ence to the one of swinging his tenor
saxophone. One of baseball's greatest
declared that, "Chester had enough
speed and-steam to give trouble to
the heaviest hitters in the majors."
Having made his choice, however,

at 4 p.m. Jan. 20 at North Hall for
37 women who have completed this
semester's course in Nurses' Aide, and
classes in the course for next semes-
ter will begin Feb. 8, according to
Mrs. Walter G. Maddock, publicity
chairman of the Red Cross chapter
at North Hall.
The new classes will meet from 7
to 9 three evenings a week: Mondays,
Tuesdays, and Wednesday, and two
hours of academic credit will be
awarded each student who completes
the course.
80 Hours Work
Any woman between the ages of
18 and 50 who has a high school edu-
cation is eligible to enter the course,
providing she meets the physical re-
quirements which will be determined
by a report of her examination.
The course will consist of 35 hours
of classwork under the supervision of
a graduate nurse and of 45 hours of
practical work under supervision in
wards in a selected hospital.
Women will be trained to give
baths, administer simple massages,
take pulse, temperature, and respi-
ration counts, make ether and stand-
"ard hospital beds, and other general
duties which will help lighten the
work of hospital nurses.

"Before and after" results which
will disclose the success of the WAA
Voluntary Physical Fitness program
will be tabulated soon after the last
leadership meeting, to be held from
4 to 5 p.m. today at Barbour gym.
IIn order to compile these results,

leaders who took the endurance tests
at the beginning of the project must
be present today to go through the
identical tests. Even those who feel
they haven't done the exercises con-
sistently during the six weeks, are
especially urged to attend the meet-



he devotes all his time to giving his
show that added "punch," and he has
an unusual reputation as a showman.
Chester's pet peeve is the fact that
nobody outside his band ever sings
the voc'als of his tunes. One number,
"The Octave Jump," sold close to
100,000 records this past year, and
boasts a full set of lyrics, which no-
body ever sings.
Betty Bradley to Sing
Helping to spread his popularity
has been his broadcasting over all the
major networks. Gene Howard and
charming Betty Bradley are featured
on the vocals and will be with the
band at the annual Ball.
