Kenton Concert To Reopen
Argument Over Jazz Styles

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a series on the history and devel-
opment of Jazz.)
The appearance of Stan Kenton
and his orchestra in a concert on
May 6 in Hill Auditorium under
the sponsorship of the Hot Rec-
ord Society will bring to this cam-
put one side of the biggest argu-
ment in hot music today.
The controversy between Ken-
Pearl Buck's
'Good Earth'
Will Be Shown
In answer to popular demand
r, shown in a recent poll, "The Good
Earth" will be presented at 8 p.m.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday in
Kellogg Auditorium.
"The Good Earth," film ver-
sion of Pearl Buck's Nobel Prize-
winning novel, dramatizes the
fundamental struggle of man
against nature on the plains of
Dramatic photographic scenes
include the storm which threatens
to destroy Wang's first crop, the
rioting and looting in South
China, and the terrifying plague
of locusts which affords the final
Luise Rainer, as O-lan the
slave-girl, is the "personification
of beauty and strength of char-
acter." Miss Rainer received the
Academy Award for her perform-
ance in the film. Paul Muni plays
the part of Wang, her husband.
Tickets for the film will go on
sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow in Uni-
versity Hall.
The film is being co-sponsored
by the Art Cinema League and the

ton's "progressive jazz" and Louis
Armstrong's modern Dixieland
highlights the difference between
improvisation and technical skill
in the world of popular music.
Basically, the argument is this:
Kenton believes music must be
played scientifically while Arm-
strong argues for improvisation.
Grounds for Argument
The grounds for this argument
between. Kenton and Armstrong
were laid at the very beginnings
of jazz in America.
Jazz had its origin in two
places, Africa and France. It's
foundation is the combination of
French melodies and slaves' songs.
As it was played then along the
Mississippi, it was based on the
group mood and was played with-
out the aid of written music.
Played in Barrel-Houses
This form of jazz, known as the
"Original Dixieland," was first
played in the barrel-houses and
honkey-tonks of Storyville, the
red-light district of New Orleans.
The standard combination was
cornet, clarinet, trombone, and
any two of a number of rhythm
instruments. In a set-up such as
this the cornet played lead mel-
ody while the clarinet played a
more delicate melody and the
trombone played a third melody.
It also furnished the rhythm base
for the clarinet and cornet.
March Time
The rhythm itself was invaria-
bly played in 2-4, marching time,
or 4-4. The key note of the style
of the original Dixieland was
complete improvisation for all
work. Very few of the musicians
could read music. As a result they
played according to the mood of
The New Orleans period ended
in 1917 when the Navy closed
Storyville. This brought the great
migration of jazz to the North.
(Next, the story of jazz from
1917 on into the Jazz Age).

Speech Cinic
Is Hot Spot of
Three Groups Used
In Teacher Training
One of the busiest places in the
scope of campus activities is the
speech clinic, where teachers and
students are working with three
groups of patients.
The first group is made up of
20 men, most of whom received
brain injuries during the war.
They are being treated for aphasic
symptoms, which include diffi-
culties in understanding word
symbols, thinking of them, or ut-
tering them.
Getting Asquainted
These men help each other to
become acquainted with the sur-
roundings and to feel at home
when they first arrive. They par-
ticipate in their own club meet-
ings and have an opportunity to
apply what they are learning
about correcting their individual
speech problems.
Last month a party was held
which provided further chance for
the men to plan and to be part of
actual social funtions.
The second group is composed
of children of primary school age
who have several types of speech
problems. They are from differ-
ent parts of the state.
Last Group Arrives
Recently the influx of new pa-
tients was completed with the ar-
rival of another adult group,
whose problems include stuttering
and cleft plate.
These three sections are part of
the teacher-training program
provided in speech correction, and
also serve in the research pro-
gram, which at present is investi-
gating group dynamics in speech
Members of the directed teach-
er-training division are working
with the children as laboratory
subjects, while the aphasics are
part of the graduate laboratory
program. The other adult group is
under the clinical methods class
for students in the teacher-train-
ing program.
