up the piano and went through
their renditions of "Blue Moon,"
a take-off on "It's Magic" called,
"It's Tragic" and they did "The
Hucklebuck" for an encore.
Danny Kaye then took center
stage and captivated the audi-
ence for the rest of the show.
He began with a practiced rou-
tine, but forgot it soon after and
spent the evening adlibing.
When Betty Jo Faulk, Panhel
president, and Mary Nell Walker,
head of the committee which
irought the show to Ann Arbor,
presented Kaye with the scroll
proclaiming him the first male
member of Michigan Panhellenic,
he sighed and said, "Of all the col-
lege towns I've been to, Ann Arbor
is really one of the best!"
HE ALSO made a speech which
received a huge amount of ap-
plause, but which nobody exactly
figured out. He had on Miss
Walker's mortarboards and seem-
ed to be imitating a graduation
day speaker.
He closed this speech with a
genuine tribute to Ann Arbor
saying that he had never before
encountered such warmth, en-
thusiasm and generosity.
In an afternoon interview, Kaye
C mentioned the Union Opera, and
expressed considerable interest in
this project. His comment after
seeing the tentative scenario for
the 1950 production was, "It has
the makings of a Broadway suc-
Some of Kaye's best liked num-
bers were "Balling the Jack" and
another which included the audi-
ence saying "Zoom," "Shok, shok,"
and "Ha-ha-ha" as he directed
them in a gypsy song.
