Anderson To Conduct
At Symphony Concert
Program Will Include Modern Compositions
Played by University Band in Hill Auditorium

'Grand Baroque

Chosen as Theme for J-Hop

Modern works of Leroy Ander-
son will be presented at the Uni-
versity Symphony Band's con-
cert at 4:15 P.m. Sunday in Hill
Auditorium.
Anderson, considered by some
critics as a phenomenon in Amer-
ican music, will be present to con-
duct his own numbers.
* * *
THE BAND is planning to play
"The Phantom Regiment," "Sere-
nata," "Trumpeter's Lullaby,"
"Belle of the Ball" and Sleigh
Ride," all from the pen of An-
derson.
Anderson's life dates from
1910 when he was born into
a musical family in Cam-
bridge, Massachusetts. His

President of SL
Speaks at Meeting
Of Board of Reps
The Student Legislature tries to
represent the interests of students
and lead them in activities, ac-
cording to Howard Willens, presi-
dent of SL, who spoke at yester-
day's meeting of the League Board
of Representatives.
In his speech he outlined the
origin of the organization which
began when the student body in-
dicated they wanted a government
of the Congress-cabinet type.
Willens also reviewed the func-
tians of SL7 as stated in the con-
stitution. These are to express
student opinion, to serve student
7 needs, to coordinate student activ-
ities and to appoint students to
joint student-faculty committees.
According to Willens, the Stu-
dent Legislature has tried and is
trying to fulfill these functions
by sponsoring a non-profit book
exchange, student advisors, and a
Homecoming dance.
In the past the group has been
responsible for the removal of a
25-cent tennis court fee, fought
against the recognition of new stu-
dent organizations that have bias
clauses, and helped put into effect
a plan that allows political speak-
ers to appear on campus.
In other business the board dis-
cussed the idea of making revi-
sions in the purchase of meal
tickets for the holiday and ori-
entation period. This problem was
brpught in by some coeds in Stock-
well.
The group also voted to extend
the new Judiciary constitution
which is temporarily in effect un-
til Feb. 25.
The next meeting will be Feb.
11, the first Wednesday of the new
semester.

mother taught him his first
scales.
Three instruments respond to
his playing : the piano, the organ,
and the double bass. He was grad-
uated from the Music Department
at Harvard.
He taught music at Radcliffe
College for two years, was music
director and arranger for the Har-
vard Band and served as a church
organist and choirmaster. The
Harvard Band still uses his ar-
rangements.

FREQUENTLY Anderson ap-
pears as a guest conductor of the
Boston "Pops" Orchestra.
According to him, musical
ideas come as a result of con-
stantly looking for them. "I
have found," he says' "that the
alertness for ideas soon becomes
an unconscious habit that is
always at work.... All I know
is that the more you think of
ideas, the more ideas you get."
In "The Phantom Regiment"
Anderson paints a shadow por-.
trait of valor echoing down
through eternity.
His first composition in the Lat-
in idiom, "Serenata" will be the
second of his works to be played
by the Band..
"TRUMPETER'S Lullaby" fea-
tures a solo trumpet over a lull-
aby played by the rest of the en-
semble.
"Belle of the Ball" is a joyous,
exuberant waltz appealing to
the ear and creating an image in
the mind as well.
Conducting the other pieces of
the concert will be Dr. William
D. Revelli of the music school.
* * *
"HAIL MIAMI" by J. J. Richards
will be the first number of the
evening's perIrmance. The com-
poser, a contemporary, is past
president of the American Band-
masters Association which will
meet this spring in Miami for a
convention under the current pres-
ident, Dr. Revelli.
"Prelude and Fugue in B-Flat
Minor," by Bach, will follow the
first number.
Rossini will be represented in
his overture to "Italian in Algiers."
Gordon Jacob's music, composed
for the Great Festival of Great,
Britain held in 1951, will be next
on the program. The Band will
play his "Music for a Festival"
which consists of eleven short
movements.,
After the intermission the Band
will play "Elsa's Procession to the
Cathedral" from Wagner's "Loh-
engrin."
Anderson will appear to con-
clude the program conducting his
works.

Pages in history will be turned
back by the J-Hop committee
when they present "Grand Baro-
que," the annual J-Hop to be held
from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday, Feb.
6, in the IM Building. -
Couples will find the ballroom
fashioned like the court of Louis
XIV of France, complete with
yards of rose drapes in many
shades.
INDIRECT lighting is planned
to simulate the soft glow of the
candles used during that period
in history.
The Baroque period is a term
used to describe the particular
style of art, architecture and
music developed during the six-
teenth to eighteenth centuries.
Particulars of the decorations
are being kept secret by the com-
mittee as well as the kind of fa-
vors that will be presented to each
couple attending the dance.
COMMITTEE members promise
that the favors this year will be
lasting, something the women will
be able to keep as a permanent
reminder of the dance.
The grand ballroom of the
Louis XIV period is different
from J-Hop decorations in past
years.
The 1952 dance featured a South
Sea Island setting complete with
clusters of orchids, palm trees, co-
conuts and fountains of perfumed
running water.

cording to nation-wide polls,
has added to his popularity also
through recordings as well as
his many personal appearances.
The two bandleaders will alter-
nate their talents with the baton
at the annual dance to allow those
attending the dance to hear equal
amounts of their music.
*V * *
AS IN OTHER years, specific
rules concerning the J-Hop Week-
end have been set up by the com-
mittee. These regulations include
the fact that no corsages are per-
mitted to be worn to the dance
except by members of the central
committee.
Smoking in the booths or on
the dance floor of the hall is
forbidden. The committee will
arrange to provide a special
place for those desiring to have
cigarettes.
Another rule to be in effect dur-
ing the weekend is that no house
parties will be approved for the
night of the Hop. Groups plan-
ning pre-dance dinners must also
end these functions at the desig-
nated hour.

STUDENT groups who are plan-
ning to hold parties on J-Hop
weekend must have approval of
such functions by the Office of
Student Affairs. The deadline for
applying for such approval has
been set at January 23.
Late permission has. been
granted to the women on cam-
pus for the weekend. Their
hours will be 4 a.m. on the
morning of Feb. 6 and 2:30 a.m.
on the morning of Feb. 7.
Part of the tradition of the J-
Hop is the fraternities' opening
their doors to house the women,
while the men vacate their rooms.
