liners in the musical show to be

Thursday, Nov. 15, in Hill Auditor-

The King Cole group, which
has recently become a quartet,
has been well known for many
years as a trio. Originally when
Nat "King" Cole was hired for
his first job in Los Angeles, the
manager of the night club asked
that he bring three other musi-
clans with him. 4
The drummer failed to appear
that night so the "King" was
forced to feature the group as a
trio. It was so much of a suc-
cess that the group remained a
trio until the recent addition of
Bongo player Jack Costanzo.

THE OTHER members of the
quartet that took eleven years to
form are Irving Ashby, guitarist
and Joe Comfort, bass. The group

Beacon Invites
Empire Students
To Club Activities
Students from all the countries
of the British Empire and Com-
monwealth of Nations and any in-
terested American students have a
chance to exchange views of poli-
tical, socialf and cultural differ-
ences at the many functions
planned by the BEACON Associa-
Picnics, lectures, movies of var-
ious countries and other activities
are held by the club throughout
the year.
Beacon arose from the desire of
students from the Empire to show
their solidarity by working toge-
ther for a commondcause, accord-
ing to B. V. Govinderaj, secretary
of the association.
"It is the belief of this associa-
tion that if people are consciously
and willingly cooperative on a
common cause they are destined
to succeed. In this way the or-
ganization of the group forms a
pattern upon which the United
Nations could be worked," he said.
The association was set up on
campus several years ago to bring
about an understanding and good
relationship of students coming
from the countries represented in
the Empire, but membership is
open to American students.
Officers for the fall semester are
William Price Brown, president;
Mary Austin, vice-president; Gov
inderaj, secretary; Jagdish C. Ba-
gal, assistant secretary; Greg
Leins, treasurer and Prof. Percei-
val Price, faculty adviser.
