Latin Song Will Be Highlioyht
Of Co. D's Musical Comedy


"One night, down in a Cuban cab-
aret . . . Latin beat . . . a new crea-
tion now has set the nation swaying"
drifted out along a corridor of the
League to passers-by Thursday night
as Company D rehearsed its musical
comedy, "Rumor Has It," which will
be produced May 25 and 26 at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Commanday Directs Chorus
The chorus of the musical comedy,
composed of coeds and Company D
members, is directed by Bob Com-
manday, who has also made the
choral arrangements. The music was
written by Ken Pierson, the lyrics
by Jim Rhind, and the arrangement'
of the music was made by Dick
"I think some of-the tunes are very
catchy and natural," Commanday
commented. "Pierson has done a
grand job with the music and this
was one of his first professional at-
"The songs should go over well
with the public . . . We are making
an effort to bring them out on radio
programs, and I am almost certain
that these songs will soon be heard
on the radio," he said.
Chorus Is Experienced
When asked about the background
of the chorus members, Commanday
remarked that some had had pro-
fessional experience while all had
sung or acted in dramatic or musical
societies, whether high school or col-
lege. Three coeds were in the recent
production of Tom Sawyer, one was
a member of Choral Union, and four
are in the University Glee Club.

professional radio work on CBS in
Cleveland and some solo work sing-
ing. James T. Stevenson studied mu-
sic in the University of Oklahoma
and played in the Oklahoma Sym-
phony Orchestra. He also sang in
the Choral Union of Oklahoma and
has played in the Army Band at the
University here.
Bob Commanday, director of the
chorus, attended the Julliard Insti-
tute of Musical Art where he studied
with Roy Harris and then studied
music at Harvard where he worked
with Walter Piston, Archibald Davi-
son and Wallace Woodworth.
Directed 30-Man Chorus
Upon graduating from Harvard he
was assistant cbnductor in the Deer-
trees Opera Company and at his last
Army post in Clemson, S.C., he di-
rected a 30-man chorus in Weekly
radio broadcasts for eight concerts.
