Tommy Dorsey WIll Play
For 'A Dreamer's Holiday

All gloomy thoughts of quickly
approaching finals will vanish at
"A Dreamer's Holiday," the an-
nual IFC Ball, to be' presented
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, May
12 at the IM Building.
With the slow .and soothing mu-
sic of Tommy Dorsey, the senti-
mental gentleman of swing, this
N traditional campus dance will be
based on a theme featuring the
famous buildings of the world.
STARTING OUT as a trumpet
& player in his father's orchestra,
Dorsey swtiched to the trombone
when the regular player became
ill. Both the instrument and the
player seemed suited to each other
and have remained inseparable
ever since.
In 1934, Dorsey combined with
his brother Jimmy in an orches-
tra which featured such famous
names as Bob Crosby, vocalist;
Glenn Miller, trombonist and
IRay McKinley on the drums.
Featured with the Dorsey group
playing at this year's dream dance
will be drummer Buddy Rich and
new feminine vocalist Frances Ir-

the world of show business from
the youngest of his younger years,
Rich's background includes ap-
pearances in many of Broadway's
vaudville houses. At the age of
seven, he played before the late
President Woodrow Wilson, and
even ,indulged in a back stage con-
fab with the chief executive.
In the dying days of vaude-
ville, Rich occupiedthe spot of
drummer with Bunny Berigan's
orchestra. From this position he
moved on to Artie Shaw's group
where he remained for a year.
He next joined Tommy Dorsey
as a featured artist and stayed
with the group until the war when
he enlisted in the Marine Corps.
Upon his discharge, he had a
group of his own for a while, but
soon rejoined Dorsey and has re-
mained with him ever since.

It is a tradition for the laywers
to display the authentic engi-
neers' slide rule at Crease Ball,
which the engineers claim can-
not be done.
However, this year the lawyers
state that, "it has been no chal-
lenge to their determined ingenu-
ity to find the slide rule, and take
it from under the strong guard
of the engine house boys." So said
Chuck Bayer, publicity manager
for the dance.

BAYER HINTED that although
the slide rule, or an imitation of
same, will not be displayed the
lawyers may have something else
of equal significance to decorate
the ballroom and surprise the

Gone are the days of uncom-

lege man now can have smart ap-
pearance without being encased in
his tux, because comfort and free-
dom are the keynote in the design
of modern evening wear.
The latest formal clothes are
loose and loungy without being
baggy. They have smooth flow-

The term "blackfoot" was ap-
plied to ATO's when the first
chapter was founded at the In-
stitute in 1865, to differentiate
the black-booted group from
the Sigma Nu's who wore white
boots with their uniforms.
Special invitations have been
