Brings Top-Hatters

To, Slide-Rule Formal Friday




Setting the mood for the annual
Slide-Rule Ball, to be held from 9
p.m. to midnight Friday in the Union!
Ballroom, the strains of "It's a Won-
derful World" will for the second
successive year bring Jan Savitt 'and
his Top-Hatters to the students, serv-
icemen and their guests on the Mich-
igan campus.
Two years ago the orchestra played
for a swing concert held in the Sta-
dium. Savitt's sweet swing is na-
tionally known through his record-
ings, broadcasts over the major net-
works and his many personal ap-
pearances in colleges and hotels
throughout the country.
Savitt Began CareertEarly
The originality and danceable
tempo of the , orchestra's arrange-
ments are the result of Savitt's clas-
sical background. Born in Russia,
Jan Savitt was brought to the United
States and began his musical career
at the age of four when he coaxed the
strains of Tschaikowsky from a toy
He later played the violin with the
r Philadelphia Orchestra and then or-
ganized the Savitt String Quartet
which won th'e New York Philhar-
v monic Society's Gold Medal in 1934.
a The quartet joined CBS, later mov-
ing to NBC, and Savitt started
a rearranging the instrumentation of
the station orchestra to give it more
. originality.
a "Sweet Swing" Is Savitt Specialty
y Believing "sweet swing" to be the
American music, Savitt has attempt-
. ed to correlate his experience in the
- field of classical music with modern
jazz. In his rendition of Raymond
Scott's "In an Eighteenth Century
Drawing Room," Savitt drew on the
, sensitive and delicate themes of the
- Mozart original and carried it through
, with his violin.

Chief Hostess for Pennsylvania-

Lillian Mikula, '45, and Jane Ser-
vais, '47, led the March University
Laundry honor roll with 38 hours and
37 hours respectively ,according to
Gerry Stadleman, '44, personnel di-
rector of undergraduate women.
"The March report of laundry
workers indicates that University
coeds are continuing their splendid
response to a plea for workers to re-
lieve the manpower shortage," Miss
Stadlman said. "A total of 103 coeds
worked 1,180 hours in March," she
continued. "This is a great improve-
ment over February, when only 758
hours were contributed."
Also on the honor roll are Walda
Stahmer, '46, and Elizabeth Messom,

'46, with 32 hours each, Ruth H.
Smith, '45, with 30 hours, and Jo-
sephine Wierzbowska, '46Ed., with 28
According to Miss Stadleman, some
students who signed for work have
not yet checked in at the laundry.
She urged these land others who are
interested in working to start as
soon as possible.
Additional coeds are needed on
week-day mornings, and some can'
still be used in the afternoon for the
laundry work for which workers are
paid 56 cents per hour. New workers
may obtain information about the
work by calling Miss Stadleman at

______________________________________________________________ 7

A number of freshman coeds re-
cently reminded students of the work
of the '47 Corps by parading across
campus with raised banners which
bore such messages as "Keep- the
Grass Clean" and "Give the Grass a
Students;pouring forth from cam-
pus buildings stopped, stared and
stayed as the marching '47 column,
melodiously chanting the aims and
regulations of t Campus Clean-Up
Week, passed by.
Starting from the substation be-
hind Waterman Gymnasium, the pa-
rade me de its way to the Library,
where one of the campaigners, losing
her poster-slogan, was forced to re-
trieve it by trespassing on the lawn
amidst good-natured jeers from the
sidelines to "keep off the grass." After
touring the campus the clean-up
corps disbanded in favor of lunch.
The freshman women are not
merely giving parades in recognition
of Clean-Up Week. They are in ear-
nest about going to work with rakes
and baskets. Last week on the days
the weather permitted, the women of
'47 could be seen energetically raking
some section of the campus and col-
lecting unsightly loose papers.
A few of-the freshman women are
so in earnest about their clean-up
jobs that they jealously guard those
parts of the campus which they have
already cleaned. Recently a careless
coed was loudly notified by shrieks of
dismay from some nearby '47 workers
that she was walking on sacred
ground-ground that they had raked
only the day before.
With such spirit and ambition the
freshman women will soon realize
their Project's aim-a campus that
the University can be proud of.
Dressings Unit
Will Re-Open
The League Surgical Dressings
Unit will re-open as soon as the Ann
Arbor Red Cross Unit receives a
sufficient supply of gauze to supply
both units, according to Harriet
Fishel, '45, chairman of the Unit.
Because of manufacturing and
transportation difficulties the League
Unit has been forced to close until
new material can be obtained. Miss
Fishel also announced that the quota
will be raised, as University coeds
have demdnstrated that they are
capable of doing a greater amount
of work.
The system of having houses send
a specified number of workers will be
