McKinley has built his orches-

vary with the musical tastes of
its audiences. He feels that spe-

orchestra artistically and brac-
kets its followers within a par-

McKinley has a definite plan be-
hind presentation of his dance
numbers. His dance sets contain
six tunes and last usually from
22 to 25 minutes. The program
generally begins with slow ballads
and progresses gradually in tem-
pa, the final numbers usually bring
a jazz original by Sauter and a
jump tune.

dormitory, league house and soror-
ity managers.

officers and bring a closer unity

ments under the vice-president in
charge of student relations.
She will also be manager of
the athletic managers' club,

entation week program and per-

DID YOU KNOW that only one of about every thousand
diamonds possess an actual bluish body color! That's why
the American Gem Society frowns upon the term "blue-
white" when referring to the diamond. The blue-white legend
may be accounted for by the fact that all diamonds break
up white light into the rainbow colors of the spectrum thus
giving forth flashes in reflected light. Consequently, the
American Gem Society tells us when you examine a diamond
in the light reflected from a blue sky or a bluish light, it
will appear to be bluish in color since a diamond reacts like
a mirror and will reflect the color against which it is seen.
Examine your diamond instead under a diamolite, an instru-
ment providing a controlled source of light for such exam-
ination and so constructed as to prevent unwanted or falsi-
fying reflections.
ODDLY ENOUGH, the American Gem Society points out, the
diamond and the mineral graphite which is used in the lead
pencil, are of the same chemical composition. The difference
lies in the arrangement of the atoms which in both cases are
pure carbon. No other mineral or other natural substance is
as HARD as the diamond. Except under great pressure, no
other substance can scratch it except ANOTHER diamond.
No other substance can be cut in a shape which will reflect
so much light to the observer. The-ol-d superstition regarding
this fascinating stone claimed that a diamond would enhance
the love of a husband for his wife. Perhaps this accounts
for the reason the diamond has become the traditional gem
for the engagement ring!
