Recently Discharged
Weems, who has been in the' mu-
sic profession for the past twenty one
years, has reorganized his band since
his recent discharge from the United
States Maritime Service. His career
began, strangely enough, by his win-
ning a sales contest sponsored by a
bluing company. The prize was a
violin, and family pressure, incited
by thirty cases of bluing they had
purchased from their young son,
forced him to take up the study of
the instrument.
Public appearances began with his
brother, Art, who played the trum-
pet. They were billed as "The Mil-
lion Dollar Twins", although in real-
ity they weren't twins, and accord-
ing to Weems, "We certainly didn't
have a million dollars!" Soon, how-
ever, the twosome expanded into a
regular band, and after Art left,
Weems discarded the violin.
Talents Include Songwriting
Weems' talents are by no means
confined to bandleading. He wrote
a song called "Jig Time", and on the
arrangement sheet instructed the
band to "swing it", the first time the
now popular phrase was ever used.
He has also written two other song
hits, one the comic "Martins and
the Coys," and the other, "Egyptian-
ella," which was featured by Sonny
Tufts in ones of his recent pictures.
Throughout the war, Weems de-
voted his time and talent to the men
of the Merchant Marine, enlisting
in the Maritime Service as a C.P.O.
Before he left the service he was ad-
vanced to the rank of a Lieutenant
(j. g.), after serving for almost two
Commenting on post-war dance
music, Weems said, "I think the
quality of the average band from
now on will be far above anything
we've known in the past. The ac-
cent will be on individual perform-
ers backed up with smooth orches-

Ed. Note-This is the second in the
series of stories concerning coopera-
tives on the Michigan campus.
The student cooperative housing
movement on the Michigan campus
found its beginning in 1934 when a
physician friend oftReverend Harry
L. Pickerill suggested to him that
the minister's basement would be an
ideal inexpensive home for some boy
who was working his way through
Dr. Pickerill approved of this sug-
gestion, and so a boy named Eldon
Hamm moved into the basement
apartment, had a wagonload of
food shipped to him from a farm,
and proceeded to live for approxi-
mately fifty cents a week. A short
time later two others joined in this
unique experiment, and in the next
year eight boys were benefiting from
the low cost advantages.
In 1936 these boys formed the
nucleus of the first cooperative
house on campus located on
Thompson Street. The house was
secured with the aid of a loan from
the minister. The next year wom-
en were introduced to this infant
movement which was quickly
growing up, and a girl's coopera-
tive was thence established on East
Ann Street. By 1940 there were
nine houses in all, and over 200 co-
operators; and before the war the
number of houses had increased
to thirteen.

Now, however, because many of
the houses were abolished when the
boys left for the service, five houses
are in operation. They include Mich-
igan and Robert Owen Houses for
men, and Stevens, Muriel Lester and
Osterweil Houses for women.
All the houses are members of
the Inter-Cooperative Council and
are established upon similar prin-
ciples. White, Negro, Indian, Chi-
nese and Japanese American stu-
dent encompassing all religions
live in the various coops. .Each
house averages about nineteen stu-
dents living there, and many more
who merely come Ato eat their
One member has stated that, "Liv-
ing with these various people who are
of different races and colors is one
of the best ways to overcome pre-
judices, since discriminations of any
sort are not tolerated in a coop. You
can't expect to work together and ac-
complish anything if any antagonism
of this sort is in existence."
In order to maintain the low cost
of living which averages about
$7.00 per week for room and board,
the members of each coop must do
his share of work about the house.
There are various systems of
scheduling and apportioning the
tasks, varying according to the
number of students, the size of the
house, past experience, personal
preferences and desirability.
