string orchestra, then enlarged his

Columbia and Mutual networks .

netist and guitarist, Sherwood is
known as one.of the best arrangers
in the' business and plays an occa-
sional trombone and piano.

have been deemed a mystery and
will not be revealed until 8 p. m.

states that there will be a huge gold
anchor and a life-sized covered
gangplank to add a nautical feel-
ing to the formal.
"The Largest Log Book In the)
World" will be one of the outstand-
ing attractions of the, evening. It
will be in the form of a gigantic log
book which all those attending the
dance will be requested to sign.
