quartet, the Singing Winds.

"SINGING WINDS," incidental-
ly, is Flanagan's theme song which
he himself wrote and recorded.
He started work in the music
world as pianist-arranger for
Sammy Kaye. He worked for
Kaye for almost three years and
then retired to New York City
with the intention of devoting
himself entirely to arranging.
From 1946 until 1949 Flanagan
arranged for such name person-
alities as Tony Pastor, Charlie
Barnet, Tommy Tucker, Tony
Martin and Perry Como.

IN 1949, a recording company
asked Flanagan to make a few
dance band records for them,
leading a studio band. This he did,
arranging the songs he recorded.
These were immediately success-
ful, especially "You're Breaking
After this start the recording
company had Flanagan doing
records for them pretty regular-

Harry Prime, male vocalist with
Flanagan, was a baseball hopeful
for a Brooklyn Dodger farm club
in New York until he decided to
see if he could become a singer.

Johnston as male vocalist on an

organized his band, it was al-

retary in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsyl-

To provide an opportunity for

from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday,

Students from most of the hous-

pink tag illustrated with a small,
contented boy sitting on a diving
board in a dripping bathing suit.
A student committee assisted by
members of the faculty is in,
charge of the collections, which
last year amounted to $3,400.
The money collected from the
drive has several purposes.
It provides the opportunity for
some all-around camping experi-
ence as well as training and clini-
cal analysis for these boys who did
not have the care and opportunity
to grow up within the limits in-
posed by society.
Some of the children come from
institutional placements or foster
homes. Others are from broken
homes and some have records as
About 240 boys between the ages
of seven and 14 go to the camp
each summer. Each one is spon-
sored by one of 25 cooperating so-
cial work agencies, and the two
weeks spent at camp are only part
of a year-around rehabilitation
This phase of the program is
handled, however, so that the boys
do things that camp life offers,
and are as unaware when they1

they came, of the "treatment" de-
