Goodman Gives Advice
It was on the advice of Benny
Goodman that McIntyre left his
original eight-piece band in Crom-
well, Conn., to join Miller. A char-
ter member of the outfit, McIntyre
roomed with the leader for five
years. At Miller's suggestion he
decided to organize an orchestra
of his own. They have developed
a distinctive style, based on muted
brass, close :harmonic saxes and
imaginative work on saxophone
and clarinet. The band has ap-
peared recently at Broadway's
Hurricane Restaurant, the Hotel
Commodore and the Sherman Ho-
tel. McIntyre has been selected as
the outstanding band leader of

Van Noble, whose father man-

Interested in horseback riding and

Professors
Are People
Professors are ordinarily very
nice people.
'They teach you a lot of stuff
which is worth something or other
and smile on you benignly all the
while. But then comes the final
examination. This is all right, as
far as it goes.
But those of us who walk in the
final exam without a watch go
through the big ordeal.
There are a number of different
professors' reactions to a situation
of this kind which are commonly
indulged in.
First there is the kind of Prof.
who keeps his silence. You work
and work and never know where
you're at.
And then there is the kind of
mentor who booms out at 15-min-
ute intervals that it's a 15-minute
interval.
But the professors we love most
of all are the ones who pick up
the longest peice of chalk in the
room and proceed to scratch the
time noisily on the board. While
frantically inscribing the latest
theories in economic thought on
what is known as a bluebook, there
is nothing more annoying than a
rasping scratch on the black old
blackboard.
But such is life at college.
