Krupa began his career as a
drummer at the age of 13, and
left college to become a free-lance
artist with midwestern bands. He
joined Red Nichols band in New
York and played a number in the
revue, "Strike Up the Band." In1
1934 he joined Benny Goodman,
with whom he played until he or-
ganized his own band.
Features Music for Dancing
Originally his organization was
built to feature the leader's fren-
zied drumming, but Krupa has
admitted that the day 'of blatant
swing is past. According to the
maestro, "At least 60 percent of
the music bands which play today
should be fashioned for dancers.
Drummers and rhythm men
shouldn't bury the tune-they
should play it melodiously."
In addition to making record-
ings, network broadcasts and club
and hotelappearances, Krupa's
band appeared in. the movie
"Some Like It Hot" with Bob
Iiope. Carolyn Grey will provide
t he vocals for the dance.

Here's a perfectly strange man looking you in
t h the eye. You've been introduced...but it's up
to you to carry on from there. Maybe your go-
between threw in some clues along with your
names. Maybe you're exposed to each other without benefit
of 1ife-lines. What on earth is there to say to this man?
The thought panics some of you into sticky silences.You
grin sheepishly at him, wishing with your whole heart he'd
hurl an opener at you. But maybe he thinks ladies should
make the opening gambit. So it could be a draw...
with each of you muffing dour chances of making an
impression on the other. But it needn't ...when it's so easv
to start the ball rolling.
What is there to talk about? People are the liveliest topic.
"Do you know...?" Alway s gets an answer. People do ihings,
say things, wear things, win honors, go places.Things haf-
pen to people...funny things, weird things, odd things. "Had
you heard...?"can start you off. Places are easy to talk
about too. Places you've been ...places you're going...places
you'd rather be than where you are right now. Whea you've
e hausted the taugibles, start on ideas. "What do you think
aiout ... ?" will set hire. chatting. You'll even find yourself being
talked down if you come out flatly wiith "I think ...!"Talk about
things you're never done...people you've never met...places
X on1 e inever seen....things you know nothing about. It's a sure
waiy to pry informuaiion out of a stranger.

leads to another. And like most games, it requires at
least two players. It's not a monologue. Toss word( out..'
then wait for responses. It takes two activ e ears...as NeIl as
