THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Novelaires To Sing at 'Autumn Nocturne'
ON THE HOUSIE
Tommy Dorsey and his band will
be in town for "Autumn Nocturne,"
informal dance to be presented
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tomorrow at
the Intramural Building.
The bandleader is bringing with
him two vocalists, Marietta Knox
and Marv Hudson, Dorsey's latest
talent in the field of crooning.
ALSO WITH the band is Sam
Donahue, a former bandleader in
this area who currently plays ten-
or saxophone for the aggregation.
Dorsey, who is also a compe-
tent classical musician, will play
music in his sweet-swing style.
Several of his hit tunes are "Ma-
rie," "Song of India" and "Once
in a While."
Tommy and his brother, Jimmy,
started out in the band business in
1934 when they had such person-
nel as Bob Crosby, Glen Miller and
WHEN THIS band broke up they
each formed a separate band, and
Tommy developed the sweet-swing
style he is known for today.
Tommy has been touring the
country for 15 years and he al-
ways runs up against the ques-
tion of why he and Jimmy never
got along together.
"The famous Dorsey Brothers'
battles were no more than family
spats," said Tommy after the two
broke up. "We've always been the
best of pals and always will oe."

Last spring the central commit-
tee for "Autumn Nocturne" was
faced with the problem of having

ond-rate band from nearby. The

was postponed a week.

The atmosphere shifted to the
South Sea Islands when Ken Kaji
presented an agile hula dance
with the uke accompaniment of
Walt Long. Four other men sang
a novel variation of "Glow Worm."
The last artists to take the stage
were the resident advisors of Scott
House, who presented a parody of
the progress of two freshmen, a
farmer and a city man.
The judges' .decision was an-
nounced and a wastebasket full of
odds and ends with the word "tro-
fee" painted on it, was awarded to
the victors, corridor 6100.
The winning skit was based on
a farmer's daughter and traveling
salesman joke with Dan Peterson
as the farmer, Jim Kruthers, Al
Haggerty, and Phil Stone acting
the role of the daughters. John
Shepherd was the traveling sales-
