You have to hunt around to find
people after 2 a.m. At first you
don't spot any as your car thumps
down the rain-drenched streets.
But there's the inevitable cop, at
last, calling in from a phone on

Back on State you see a light

just a high school senior making

By then it's 4 a.m. and there's

it's time for a dead one. So you set

singing career.

IT ALL started about 8 p.m. on
May 17, the night of I.F.C. Ball.
"I wanted to know what Mr.
Flanagan thought of my voice,"
explained Miss Seput, "so I went
to see him at the I.M. Building."

and approached the Flanagan
band tuning up for the dance.

that she wanted professional cri-
ticism on her voice, Flanagan con-
sented to listen.
To the empty gymnasium
Miss Seput presented jazz ver-

Ain't Good" and "Paper Moon."
After a moment's silence Flana-
