Defroiter Donahue Returns
To Lead Homecoming Band

"Local boy makes good" is what
many are saying about Sam Dona-
hue, whose orchestra will provide
the music for the annual Home-
coming dance to be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 30,
at the Intramural building.
Native Detroiters who know
r~oxahue as a child still cannot
understand why he did not turn to
athletics instead of music for his
career. He excelled 'in football,
baseball and basketball playing on

owned of the Coral Gables Ball-
room in East Lansing offered his
band a summer booking. Donahue
took the job.
A few years later, he took a

1941. Then the Navy called him
up for service and forced him to

IN THE SERVICE, he had his
own orchestra and was put in
charge of all Navy music for the
AFRS, played Command Perform-
ance shows and was featured on
service programs such as Yank
3andstand and Bands For Bonds.
When the war ended and he
was discharged, he formed a ci-
vilian band and has been going
strong ever since.

Baby-sitting is a major block
in the social life of student par-
ents in the Village, but two wives
have solved not only their own,
but their neighbor's problems.
Mrs. Daniel Singer, of 1350 En-
field, collected the names of stu-
dent families in her neighborhoodI
and sent out 86 cards asking if1
they would be interested in a co-
op club to swap baby-sitting. Ten
mothers responded.
A monthly chairman arranges
sitters on request on a bank-ac-
count set-up. A mother or father
deposits three night sittings and
tIPen may draw three nights. In-
cluded in the club are Enfieli,
Dana. Dudley, Metcalf, Dell, Wes-
ten, Palmer, Sharon and Rowe
Mrs. Heelen Samuels is organiz-
ng a similar group on Norfob:.
MRS. JAMES W. COX has still
another plan. For $1.00 she will
give a short course to men students
who want to learn baby-sitting.
The mother of two small sons,
Jimmie and Jerry, Mrs. Cox has
had nursing school experieni;e.
She reports that there are many
calls for baby-sitters and men stu-
dents could sit with sleeping child-
ren and earn money while study-
Though new in the Village, the
plan has been succesful in other
colleges. The Universicy of Louis-
ville reports such a venture.
Interested persons may meet
with Mrs. Cox at 8 p.m. Wednes-
day at the University Commu-i-
ty Center.
