THE TWO pianists have been
acclaimed by critics for their work
as concert artists and in the popu-
lar music field.
They met and combined their
musical talents in Paris where
they were both scholarship stu-

which are being offered by various
persons and organizations affili-
ated with the University.
Included anmong them is the Eth-
el McCormick. Scholarship of
$100, which is awarded to a junior
woman on the basis of participa-
tion in activities.
This award is intended to aid a
wonan who otherwise would not
be able to participate in activities
because of financial need.
Applications may be obtained in
the League Undergraduate Office
now, and a notice of the times for
interviews will appear in The Daily
in the future.
Applications for the annual
Scroll Scholarship are due tomor-
row in the Undergraduate Office of
the League.
The $100 schilarship is open to

cluding those who pledged last

qualities of leadership, character,
service and need.
Coeds are requested by the schol-
arship committee to sign up for

their application blanks.
Interviews will be held from 3:30
to 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday

' magazine.

Paris and then toured Europe giv-
ing concerts. In America they
have performed at Town Hall and
in the New York Philharmonic
Symphony League.
* * .
IN CONTRAST to their more
serious work they have developed
distinctive arrangements of popu-
lar music and have played for sev-
eral New York night spots. It was
then that Fred Waring contracted
them for his program.
Another team to be featured
in the Waring concerts are Keith
and Sylvia Textor. Before join-
ing the Pennsylvanians in 1950,
the Textors were associated with
a singing group known as the
Honey Dreamers.
While singing with the Honey
Dreamers they sang with Stan
Kenton and Mischa Auer and
eventually were featured on their
own network radio show.
JOYCE DeYOUNG, known as
"the girl with the bangs" by the
viewers of Waring's television pro-
grams will also appear in Ann Ar-
Miss DeYoung has dubbed
herself as the Baltimore secre-
tary who "always liked to sing."
She was hired by Fred Waring
after he had heard her perform
at one of his Choral Workshops.
Other acts to be featured by
the Pennsylvanians will' include
dancing numbers; Lou and Jean
Eley, violinists,.and Daisy and her
gang, a comedy quintet.
THE WARING Glee Club and
orchestra will account for many
of the program's numbers. War-
ing's choral arrangements have
long been his trademark.
The long hums and sudden
changes of volume and tempo
on hymns and jazz tunes which
are employed by Waring were
devised in an attempt to make
glee club work popular on
The Pennsylvanians had been
told time and time again by radio
sponsors that glee clubs were
meant for Sunday morning per-
formances, not evening. Waring
was determined to make choir
singing successful on radio, and
proved his case.
Tickets for the performances
are priced at $2.40, $1.80 and $1.20.
Mail orders are being accepted at
1020 Administration Building.
According to Tom Sparrow, '53
publicity co-chairman for the
show, those desiring choice or
block seats should send in their
orders immediately before general
sales at the box office begin.

one of the acts featured during the Fred Waring Show concerts
scheduled at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, March 14 in Hill Audi-
torium. Mail order sales are now open for tickets which are
priced at $2.40, $1.80 and $1.20.
