Wayne King Concert To Feature
Versatile Vocalists Evans, Hall

Appearing in the Wayne King
concert, sponsored by the Men's
Glee Club, to be held Saturday,
Nov. 5 in Hill Auditorium, will be
popular vocalists Nancy Evans and
Harry Hall.
Nancy Evans, whose voice, critics
have agreed, seems unlimited in
range, is able to move from the
lowest =to the highest note of the
musical scale with ease. She is also
known as having the perfect voice
forsrenditions of "torchy" num-
MISS EVANS is known to ful-
fill musical requests gladly wheth-
er she has had time to rehearse
or not.
Among the numbers she will
sing at the concert are Lazy River,
Ciribiribin, Begin the Beguine and
The Man I Love.
A newcomer with the Wayne
King group is baritone Harry
Hall. While attending the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, Hall sang
in leading nightclubs about the
city. Following his release from
service in the U.S. Navy, he won
an Arthur Godfrey Talent Scout

This in turn led him to various
appearances in nightclubs, on the
radio and finally to a contract
with the Wayne King orchestra.
* * *
HALL WILL BE featured in the
following numbers: Some En-
chanted Evening, Four Winds and
the Seven Seas, Hallelujah and
The Lord's Prayer.
Also featured in the concert
will be the well known mixed
choral group, the Don Large
Chorus. Originating in Detroit,
the group, under the direction
of Don Large, has been heard
regularly over radio, records and
During the past two years, theI
chorus has toured with Wayne
King from coast to coast in con-
certs where they have been re-
peatedly called back for further
IN ADDITION to the chorus as
a unit, there are smaller groups
of vocalists: three female singers
known as "The Meadowlarks"; the
male chorus, "The Grenadiers";
and the newly formed' mixed
group, "The Quintones"
Modern swing and old favor-
ite classicals are handled with
equal facility to these choral
units. Because of the tremen-
dous ovations they received last
year while traveling with the
Wayne King concert group, the
maestro has planned this year's

program to provide plenty of op-
portunity for the display of the
versatility and talents of these
gifted singers.
Wayne King concerts are always
well sprinkled with the waltz tunes
his orchestra has made famous
during its twenty years history.

KING DECLARED in a recent
interview, "The waltz is timeless,
dances may come and dances may
go; but the waltz stays on for-
He added that right now the
tempo is being speeded up a
bit, but it still has not reached
the speed of the nineties when
people had plenty of floor space
in which to twirl.
In sharp contrast to other or-
chestras, the King group features
softly muted strings and eliminates
drum solos completely. It is this
quality of smoothness which has
brought the "Waltz King" repeat-
ed compliments for his restful and
full-bodied music.
Tickets for the concert may be
purchased from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
every day this week at the box
office in Hill Auditorium.

Even Pan-Hel hasn't heard
about the Nu Gamma Deltas.
They're the newest of the Greek
letter groups on campus-and the
most elite (so they think!)
The Nu Gams (Newberry's
Green Dressed) organized last
year, are a crew of 15 Newberry-
ites who are the waitresses of
the only dorm on campus that
has all three meals served.
Definitely a discriminating or-
ganization, the Nu Gams are
staunch in their standards. Quali-
fications for joining are three:
first, lively table conversation for
the pre-meal waitress table, with
the emphasis on good juicy gos-
Secondly, the ability to talk
people out of ordering soup and
tea at lunch is required. Finally,
having no slip shorter than
three inches below the hem line
of the green uniform is a neces-
sary prerequisite.
The day starts at 6:45 for the
green-garbed Newberryites who
are unfortunate enough to have to
work breakfast. This means bring-
ing three. coffee and five milk
Panhel Committee
Plans Decorations
The decorations committee for

5:00 p.m. tomorrow in the Publici-
ty Room of the League.
Coeds who have already signed
up for the committee are asked to
attend this meeting, for "activity
points will not be given to those
who have signed up unless they as-
sume committee obligations," ac-
cording to Marilyn Buell, chair-
man of the committee.
Women who are interested in
joining the committee may still
sign up. Those.who are interested
in art or have a flair with the pal-
ette and brush are especially need-
The theme of the dance, "Peter's
Panic," will feature circus deco-
rations. The theme and the deco-
rations are being planned to show
a young boy's delight and excite-
ment at the circus.
The name for the dance was
chosen to relate the event to the
University Fresh Air Camps, for
Peter Pan is pictured on all the
camp posters. In the ballroom fig-
ures of a smiling and impish Peter
Pan will be seen peeking around
the sides of the booths and sitting

in working breakfast-the wait-
resses must be able to join the

comers who dash in 30 seconds
before the dining room closes

olate the neighborly crowd dis-
cussed topic ranging from com-
parative room sizes and elevator
service to the idiosyncrasies of
house chaperons. Newberryites
then escorted guests on tours of
the house.
Not only do the "sister dorms"
share a landscaped lawn (which
turns into a football field at this
time of the year), but they also
share a long standing friendship.
This traditional amity dates
back to their days as the first
women's residences established at
the University, Newberry having
been opened in 1915 and Barbour
a few years later.
Newberry is now formulating
plans for an open house similar to
the affair recently given by the
Sigma Chis. Instead of putting
pledges on display, however, New-
berry will offer a premier showing
of its new furniture.

Panhel Workshop Organizes

Last weekend new horizons
dawned for the Panhellenic Asso-
ciation's up and coming workshop.
A relatively new project of the
Panhellenic organization, the
workshop was formed for the pur-
pose of acquainting sorority wom-
en with their responsibilities on
campus and to promote more un-
derstanding between sororities.
* * *
THE WEEKEND started with
registration on Saturday. After
registration a dessert was held in
the Grand Rapids Room of the
League. This was followed by a
speech by Dean Mary C. Bromage
entitled "Contributions of the So-
rority to College Life."
Later that afternoon a round
table discussion took place, cov-
ering the social side of sorority
life, house management and
Following this open forum, the
women enjoyed a listening party

which concluded the activities of
the day.
THE WORKSHOP continued
with another round table discus-
sion Sunday morning. Points
stressed at the meeting were schol-
arships, off i c e r organizations
transfer relations, pledge training
and the place af alumnae in the
sorority system.
After the forum a banquet was
held at noon. This was follewed
by the presentation of Mrs. E. L.
Knapp, who spoke on "The Priv-
ileges and Responsibilities of the
Sorority Woman."
To bring the workshop activi-
ties to a close, Panhellenic mem-
bers presented a skit on sorority
The workshop 'which is in the
experimental stage "certainly
proved to be very successful and
has made sorority bonds more
friendly than ever," said Betty Jo
Faulk, president of Panhellenic.
