ALUMNUS RETURNS:
Stuart Churchill To Sing
In Fred Waring Concert
* * *

The voice that spurred appe-
tites at a local restaurant 20 years
ago will be heard again at the
University, when Stuart Churchill,
appears with Fred Waring and his
Pennsylvanians, Oct. 30 and Nov.
1.
Churchill, who graduated from
the University in 1929, helped put
himself through school by singing
for his meals, and was so effective
that when Waring visited the
campus, and heard him, he was
immediately offered a job.
Active at 'U'
Already active in the Universityl
Band and Symphony Orchestra,I
playing bassoon, saxaphone and
drums, Churchill, who majored in
music, did not join the Pennsyl-
vanians until after his graduation.
It was soon after he had joined
the Waring group, that Churchill
first sang "Ave Maria." This per-
formance was such a success that
he has been specializing .in reli-
gious songs ever since
Left for Service
Churchill was the first "Penn-
sylvanian" to leave for the serv-
ice. The same year, Irving Ber-
lin's "This is the Army" began re-
hearsals and he was transferred
to the cast. Featured soloist in a
humorous ballet production in
which he sang, "What Does a Sol-
dier Dream of?", Churchill toured
the country, and then the British
Isles, Africa, India, Egypt, Aus-
tralia and Pacific Islands.
"Guitar Fever"
It was at Camp Upton, that
Churchill began to play the guitar.
Burl Ives, the folk-singer, was his
teammate, and Churchill "caught
guitar fever" from him, bought a
guitar and learned to play.
Discharged in Nov., 1945,
Churchill resumed his position of
featured tenor soloist with the
"Pennsylvanians."+
