Kenton To Act as Host
At Modern Jazz Eventi

Stan Kenton and his orchestra
will be hosts for the "Festival of
Modern American Jazz," to be pre-
sented at 7:15 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
tomorrow night at Hill Auditori-
The festival, sponsored by Pan-
hellenic Association and Inter-
Fraternity Council, will be the first
musical performance of its kind
this semester. Tickets for the jazz
concert are still available and will
be sold at the door. They are
priced at $2, $1.50 and $1. All seats
are reserved.

THE ERROLL Garner trio,
"Dizzy" Gillespie, Charlie Parker
and Candido will be featured along
with vocalist June Christy and the
20-piece Kenton orchestra.
Can'lido was born in Regal,
Cuba and played the bass and
guitar at the age of 14. He start-
ed on bongos and conga drum in
1946 and worked for six years
at a radio station in Havana.
He came to the United States to
play at Chicago's Latin Quarter
and then went to Puerto Rico for
two years followed by six months
in the Dominican Republic on tour.

To Honor Bunyan
At Annual Dance
Paul Bunyan's on his way-seis-
mographs in research centers
throughout the hemisphere are
recording rhythmic vibrations
coming out of the Far North and
headed toward Ann Arbor.
Foresters have interpreted this
information for the benefit of
perplexed scientists, explaining
that the vibrations of earthquake
intensity are the foot-falls of their
hero, heading southward in time
to be the guest of honor at the
Foresters' Club's annual Paul Bun-
yan Dance.
THE BLUE jeans affair is sched-
uled from 8 p.m. to midnight Sat-
urday, Feb. 27, in the Union Ball-
room, with Paul McDonough's or-
chestra providing the music.
The presence of Paul funyan
and his blue ox, Babe, is guar-
anteed,' say the Foresters. He'll
be towering over the pine trees
surrounding the dance floor,
with his head near the ceiling.
Babe, the blue Ox, who measures
forty-two ax handles and a plug of
Star tobacco between the eyes and
can pull anything that has two
ends, will be at Paul's side. His
pet fish won't be present-it's said
to have drowned recently when it
fell into the water.
MEMBERS of the natural re-
sources school are preparing Ann
Arbor for Paul's visit. A huge
shack is being erected in the Arb
to house the giant lumberman dur-
ing his stay here, since the wooded
area will make him feel at home.
Countless tail tales have been
spun by lumbermen about Paul
Bunyan, but Foresters say one
yarn just isn't true. Pike's Peak
wasn't built with the dirt Paul
threw while digging the Missis-
sippi. All he did was to log off
the trees in that area. Released
from their weight; Pike's Peak
just popped up.
After a day of logging, Paul
Bunyan would head back to camp
with pockets full of fast-growing
seedlings. It was rumored that he
could replant a freshly logged sec-
tion, single-handed, at the rate of
10 acres to a stride.
To make Paul feel at ease at the
dance, plaid shirts and blue jeans
will be the official garb for men,
while coeds will wear "square
dance" skirts.

Charlie Parker, "Dizzy" Gillespie
and has made records with Woody
Herman, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Loco,
Stan Getz, Bennie Green and
His rhythm-making has thrill-
ed audiences and fans for years.
Candido speaks only his native
Spanish tongue.
Charlie ("Yardbird") Parker
hails from Kansas City, Kansas
where he spent much of his boy
hood. studying the French horn,
before switching to the alto-saxo-
* * *
PARKER played with a home-
town band to start and then went
on to be with Earl Hines, Billy
Eckstine, "Dizzy" Gillespie and
Jay McShann. He formed his own
group in April, 1946.
The "Yardbird," as he is affec-
tionately known in jazz circles, has
completely divorced himself from
the rythm pattern which has al-
ways identiflied westerners. Park-
er is now known for his incredite
speed, technique and ideas to
make perforpnances fascinating,
even to those who normally have
no interest in jazz.
According to Stan Kenton,
speaking for the jazz profession,
"We should be as proud of the fact
that we spawned jazz and gave it
to the world-as proud of this fact
as the American diletante is en-
vious of the European art forms.
We may be parvenue in- all other
fields but we are the royalty of jazz
and modern music. Jazz, in all its
forms, is America's number one
export-revered in Europe-copied
all over the world - but like all
other originals, never equalled by
Union To Sponsor
Trip to Comedy
Students will have an opportun-
ity to see the original Broadway
version of "The Moon Is Blue," at
ya considerable saving, by taking
advantage of the Union-sponsored
student trip planned for Sunday,
Feb. 21.
The comedy hit, tobe presented
at the Schubert Theatre in De-
troit, will include the same cast
that closed the show on Broad-
way. The play ran successfully for
three years in Ney York and has
since been made into a movie. ,
Price for the student trip, in-
cludes transportation and choice
orchestra seats, has been set at
$3.50. Since the total cost per
student, if each went individually,
would be $6, the evenings enter-
tainment is designed to appeal to
the budget-minded coed and man.
The use of University buses will
help to save on transportation
costs, while the large block of
tickets purchases aids in cutting
costs in this department.
According to trip chairman
Mark Gallon, students may sign
up for the evening's entertainment
either in groups, with dates or
alone. Reservations may be made
from 3 to 5 p.m. today, tomorrow,
Monday and Tuesday in the first
floor Union Student Offices.
Late permission has been grant-
ed for women making the trip.
