Tennis Ball, Senior Ball, May 13,


1 To Climax Semester Events

'Senior Swing-Out' To Feature
McKinley, Campus 'Rah-Rah'
** *

The Class of 1949 will present
the "Senior Swing Out", a semi-
formal dance, from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m Saturday, May 21, at the
Intramural Building.
The Senior Ball committee has
announced that the dance's theme
will express the current campus
sentiment to revive Michigan
"rah-rah." Decorations for the
evening will feature sketches of
colorful Michigan traditions.
Music for "Senior Swing Out"
will be played by Ray McKinley
and his orchestra. While his band
is known as "the most versatile
bard in the land", McKinley him-
self is adept at the drums and
considered by many one of the
nation's top vocal stylists.
* * *
CR4[TICS RANGING from con-
noisseurs of pure jazz to commer-
cial-minded promoters have rated
McKinley's orchestra tops in
showmanship and danceability.
According to the band leader
himself, his orchestra is built
on the premise that the musical
wares . of a band should vary
according to the musical tastes
of its audiences. He believes
that the orchestra world is as
highly competitive as the sports
world, and that it is dangerous
for a band to specialize in a
particular type of music.
* * *
NO NEWCOMER to the music
world, McKinley first started with

* * *
the famous Dorsey brothers and
remained with Jimmy Dorsey
when the combination broke up.
Later in 1939 McKinley shared
co-leadership with Will Bradley
and made musical history with an
eight-to-the-bar style which be-
came known as "boogie-woogie."
When the war came he join-
ed the Air Force and performed
with Glenn Miller's AAF or-
chestra as a featured star.
When Miller was reported miss-
ing, McKinley took over the
leadership of the orchestra. Us-
ing the former members of the
Miller overseas band as a nuc-
leus, McKinley reorganized his
band immediately after the war.
Tickets for the all-campus af-
fair will go on sale tomorrow.
