he made his debut a few years ago,
is almost identical to that of the
group he now leads.
Stresses Versatility
From the beginning, Clyde deter-
mined to have a truly versatile or-
chestra, and this feature has been
stressed to such an extent that every
man of the Clyde crew now plays at
least three or four instruments.
Featured in the orchestra as a vo-
calist and instrumentalist is Clyde's
younger brother, Lyn Lucas. Lyn
plays ten musical instruments in-
cluding saxophone, clarinet, violin,
flute, and Cuban instruments. His
baritone voice is featured in many
of the ballad arrangements of the
Worked in Hollywood
Lyn also played in numerous bands
before going into vaudeville with his
brother, Clyde. When vaudeville gave
way to feature movies, the brothers
worked in Hollywood composing, ar-
ranging, and scoring pictures for all
the major studios.
Patricia Ross is the vocalist who
is now starring with Lucas's band.

XANSAS CITY-P)-Bill Ratch-
ford and a dozen neighbors labored
strenously preparing Victory gardens
in a large vacant lot near their homes.
One day a stranger stepped from
his automobile, nodded to Ratchford
and said:

ground the other day."
Ratchford wilted.,
"And," continued the visitor, "I
wish you'd save a place for me. I'd
like to put in a few potatoes myself."

All second semester freshman wo-
men interested in working on Frosh
Project are invited to attend a mass
meeting which will be held at 4:30
p.m. Wednesday in the ballroom of
the League, it has been announced
by the newly formed central com-
At the meeting the various com-
mittee chairmen will discuss the du-
ties of their committees, and the
organization and purposes of the
project will be explained. After the
meeting an opportunity will be pro-
vided for the women to sign up to
work on the committees in which
they are interested.
Jean Gaffney has been appointed
general chairman and will be assisted
by a central committee consisting of
seven students. Rudy Bales will be
in charge of publicity. Heading the
entertainment committee will be
Shirley Sickels, and her assistant will
be-Shirley Cobb.
Central Committee Members
Betsy Perry has been appointed
hostess chairman and will be assisted
by Joan Bush. The social secretary
is Dona Guiemares, and Alene Loeser
will be in charge of finances.
Like the sophomores, juniors and
seniors, the freshmen have turned to
war activities for their class projects
this year. Instead of holding their
traditional dance complete with skits
and various sorts of entertainment,
the freshman women are concen-
trating on entertaining the soldiers
stationed on campus.
Open House for Soldiers
An open house for soldiers will be
held every Saturday. The Grand
Rapids room will be open for dancing.
Card games, bingo and a coke ma-
chine will provide entertainment in
the Kalamazoo room.
All women on campus are urged
to attend these open houses, said
chairman Jean Gaffney. A plan will
probably be initiated to invite certain
houses to act as hostesses each week.
The Frosh Project committee will

be ii charge of planning the various
types of entertainment and seeing
that everything runs smoothly. The
committee plans to utilize the sug-
gestions that have been offered by
the soldiers themselves through the
recent ballot box.
Women who are unable to attend
the meeting may sign up for a com-
mittee by getting in touch with the
chairman of the committee they are
interested in or by signing up at the
