A song contest to determine the
selections students would most like
to hear Ellington play, is being
conducted through the ticket sales.
A detachable stub is attached to
each ticket. Purchasers may write
the name of their favorite song on
the stub which will then be entered
in the contest.
Ellington originally intended tot
study art at Pratt Institute through
a scholarship for his work in oils at
Armstrong Technical High School in
Washington, D. C. He picked up piano
playing by ear, however, and some-
time afterward learned to read music.
From then on he was bound to a
career in music.
"The Duke" worked up from Har-
lem night clubs to Broadway vaude-

ville acts. He worked with Ziegfield{
on "Show Girl" and began to intro-
duce his own compositions. His
"Mood Indigo" was written in 1930
and shortly afterward he anticipated
the imminent swing era with "It
Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got
That Swing."
Recognition awards began com-
ing to Ellington as he won the
ASCAP prize for the most import-
ant songs of the year in 1935, '38
and '39. The winning songs were
"Solitude," "Caravan" and "I Let
A Song Go Out Of My Heart."
In 1943 Ellington's popularity was
confirmed by the annual Downbeat!
poll which voted him number one
band of the year. Another auspi-
cious recognition of Duke Ellington's
talent was given in Carnegie Hall
when a capacity house heard his band
in an anniversary concert of his own
music. "The Duke" has since ap-,
peared several times in Carnegie Hall
