Gene Krupa Orchestra Will Be Spotlighted

At Panhel-Assembly Formal Ball April



"The Band That Swings with
Strings", Gene Krupa and his or-
chestra, will be spotlighted on the
bandstand at the Panhel-Assembly
Ball from 8:30 p.m. to midnight EWT
(7:30 p. m, to 11 p. m. CWT), April 271
at the Intramural Building.
Reputedly the nation's- number
one drummer man, Krupa has dem-
onstrated his ability by piling up an
imposing number of successful en-
gagements since leaving Benny
Goodman's orchestra. He and his
organization have played the New
York Capitol Theater, and the Hotel
Pennsylvania, in New York, the Mea-
dowbrook Country Club, and thea-
ters in leading cities all over the1
United States.
Known to Movie Fans
Krupa's band has scored heavily in
the Paramount picture, "Some Like
It Hot", as wellas in radio programs
on all major networks. Recording
for Columbia and Okeh records,
Krupa's hot but sweet music claims
devotees from all ranks of dancers,
dreamers and jitterbugs alike.
Krupa's latest innovation in his
orchestra is the addition of his string
section. "The King of the Hide-
beaters" is the first to admit that the
era of blatant swing is over, accord-
ing to his publicity agents, and he
realizes the quality of the smooth
tempos of a string section.
Talented Entourage
Appearing with Krupa's orchestra,
will be the G-Noters, a quartet con-
sisting of his vocalist, Lillian Lane
and her escorts, Peggy Mann, billed
as "The Girl with the Pin-Up Voice",
and his featured instrumentalists,
Charlie Venturo, tenor sax; Tommyi
Pederson, trombone; and Teddy Na-
poleon, piano.
An all professional floor show will
be presented by Gene Krupa and his
organization at intermission, and the
program will be announced later.
Tickets Available
Tickets for Panhel-Assembly Ball
will be available until April 16 in all
dormitories, league houses, sororities,
and co-op houses, and at the special
booth in the lobby of the League
every afternoon.
Assurance of a date is offered to

men and coeds alike in the guise of
the Date Bureaus which will be open
from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. EWT Monday,
Tuesday, and Wednesday in the lob-
bies of the League and Union. All
coeds and men are urged to sign up
by the slogan, "It's been fated that
you'll be dated."

vitations for rushing parties Tues-

"If any girl is not interested in
informal rushing, or does not wish to
rush for any reason, she should simply
refuse her invitations," explained
Peggy Laubengayer, president of Pan-
hellenic Association.
Contact rules restricting the joint
activities of independent women
and sorority women were recently
abolished by vote of the Panhellenic
Rushees may obtain further infor-
mation concerning informal rushing

JQ Play Echoes
Events of Past j
In Unusual Way
When Junior Girls play, "Take It
from There," is presented at 7:30
p. m. CWT (8:30 p. m. EWT) April
26 in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in
the League, it will have in it strange
echoes of a previous junior class
play, one which was held twenty
years ago.
Pat Barrett, '46, who will play one
of the leading roles in the play, will
write the end to an unfinished hu-
man drama, which her mother began
while an undergraduate at Michi-
Twenty years ago her mother, then
a junior, was every bit as excited as
Miss Barrett was when she too was
chosen for the lead in her junior class
play. A few months before this, in
September, 1924, her mother, then
Marguerite Julie Goodman, '27 mar-
ried John Alton Barrett, a student
in law school.
Rehearsals for the play began, ela-
borate preparations being made for
what was then largely a professional
show. It was being written and di-
rected by experienced show men.
This would be a play that Mrs. Bar-
rett would never forget, she thought.
But, Mrs. Barrett never played that
leading role, because, in the mean-
time, she had discovered that she was
to play another entirely different role
-Pat was on the way.
So when Miss Barrett takes the
stage April 26 in the leading role of
"Take It from There," she will be
writing the conclusion to a play that
was begun twenty years ago.
