Homecoming Dance

Will Be Held Oct. 3Gm nM Building

Ticket Sales Will Begin Today at 'U'
Hall; Varsity Committee Sponsors Event

Coeds Will Begin Competion
For Mile.' Quest Editorships

Highlighting a series of festivi-
ties celebrating the University's
annual homecoming weekend will
be an informal dance sponsored by
the Varsity Committee of the Stu-
dent Legislature to be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 30
in the Intramural Building.
The Homecoming Dance will
continue the parade of big-name
band affairs by presenting Sam
Donahue, All-American saxaphone
sensation. Featured with the Sam
Donahue orchestra are vocalists
Shirley Lloyd and Bill Lockwood
and drummer, Harold Hahn.
ONE OF THE leading college
band favorites in the nation, Don-
ahue and his versatile aggregation
have barnstormed around the en-
tire nation. Included in Sam's lat-
est tour were proms at Yale Uni-
versity and at Texas A. & M., with
twenty more proms scheduled for
this current semester. These en-
gagements place him right at the
head of the list as the top college
band in the country.
The Donahue orchestra was
organized when Sam got out of
the Navy some years back. There
were many other young bands
starting up at the same -time,
and for a while Sam was lost
in the shuffle. However, the or-
chestra is finally coming into its
own.
One reason the band did so well

must be credited to the Capitol
recordings they have made. "I
Never Knew," "Melancholy Baby,"
"Saxo-Boogie" and others are con-
sistent sellers in the "big town."
"Robin's Nest," "Dinah"' and "A
Rainy Night in Rio" were leading
the New York disc jockey list for
weeks.
DONAhUE MAY BE responsible
for these recordings making top-
billing. He was best known for his
arranging and composing talents
before his own band started on the
rocky climb to fame. Harry James
is still remembered for his record
of "Hodge Podge" which was writ.
ten and arranged by Donahue.
Gene Krupa's recording of the
"Old Mill Stream" classic is a
rare collector's item today
thanks to a Sam Donahue ar-
rangement. The Bluebird re-
cordings of "Six Mile Stretch"
are still used by disc jockeys as
a fine example of modern big-
band jazz by the Donahue or-
chestra.
Sale of tickets for the affair
will begin today from 9 a.n. to
noon, and from 'l to 4 p.m. at "U"
Hall. Tickets may be obtained
during the noon hour in the Un-
ion. Later this week sales will also
be made through other stations on
campus.

Virginia Garritsen and Frances
Keaton, 1948 Guest Editors on
"Mademoiselle," will hold a meet-
ing for all coeds interested in
competing in the 1949 "Mademoi-
selle" College Board Contest at

signments given to College
Board members during the year.

ing the year, one for each as-
signment. There are minor

est in the coed's own field of
specialization.
