Fred Waring
Returning to Ann Arbor Wed-
nesday with his Pennsylvanians to
present "Pleasuretime 1955," Fred
Waring willemark the thirty-third
anniversary of his beginning in
show business.
He was "discovered" here and
fondly refers to Ann Arbor and
the Theta Delta Chi House as
"his home away from home."
It all started with the 1922 J-
Hop. Several members of Theta
Delta Chi were on the J-Hop com-!
mittee and one was in charge of
securing a band. He had recently
been East, heard Waring's band
and hired them. The contract
was for one night at -the J-Hop
and a fraternity dance the next.
At that time, the Waring troupe
consisted of 10 men who could
play some 40 instruments. War-f
ing, a sophomore at PennsylvaniaN
State College, had gradually builti
up the band from four people.i
They played weekends at frater-
nity houses. t
Variety of Names 1
His group had assumed a var-
iety of names including Banjass-
tra Snap Orchestra and even War-c
ing's Pencil Sharpeners, before
they decided upon, the Pennsyl-c
vanians.I
Arriving in Ann Arbor, the bandr
filled the contract and, out oft
work for the present, stayed at
the Theta Delta Chi house.N

That's the beginning of a song
106 Michigan Symphony Band
members were singing with slight
eastern accents as they arrived in
Ann Arbor recently after an elev-
en day tour of eastern cities.
Performed Fifteen Concerts
The band, under the direction
of William D. Revelli, performed
fifteen concerts in eleven cities
beginning in Plainville, Ohio on
March 31, and giving their final
concert in Carnegie Hall, New
York on April 8.
Michigan's band was the first
college band ever to play in Car-
negie Hall. Acccording to band
members the New York audience
was quite receptive to the band
and the Michigan Singers who
performed with them on this stop
of their eastern tour.
For the major part of the trip,
band members stayed overnight
in the homes of high school band
parents, or University alumni.
Travel by Bus
Leaving the private homes im-
mediately after breakfast, band
members boarded buses for the
next city on the tour. In New York
and the other large cities all mem-
bers doubled or tripled in hotel
rooms.
Though the schedule was crowd-
ed with concerts and the bus trip
took up a great deal of the band's
time, members did quite a bit of
sight-seeing in the various cities
they visited. Members had Satur-
day free to do as they pleased in
New York City, and they took ad-
vantage of this time by touring
the city for hours on end.
Rides to the top of the Empire
State Building, trips to Greenwich
Village, China Town and the
United Nations Building, steamer
rides to the Statue of Liberty, vis-
its to television shows and view-

were booked for a two-week run
in Detroit which launched War-
ing on his successful career.
"Fred Waring always stays at
the house when he comes to Ann
Arbor," Kurt Ewen of Theta Delta
Chi remarked. "We are planning
a buffet supper for him before the
concert Wednesday."
Waring has indeed come a long
way since the days of his playing
for college fraternities. Of his
many enterprises, his favorite is
the Fred Waring Worshop. Each
summer, some 700 choral directors
visit this workshop to study with
him and his staff the Waring

direction.
Offers Varied Entertainment
Presently on what he terms
"the biggest tour of our career,"
Waring considers "Pleasuretime
1955" a traveling musical theatre.
Composed of the orchestra and
soloists the program offers enter-
tainment running from moments
of hilarity to religious and choral
music.
Highlighting the presentation
will be an old-time minstrel show
complete with interlocuter and
specialty acts. Elaborate lighting
effects and intricate theatrical de-
vices supplement the talents of
the Pennsylvanians.
The Glee Club sponsors this
show as they did two years ago
when Waring also gave a concert
in Ann Arbor. Tickets may be
purchased for both the 7 and 9:15
performances from 9 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. daily and up to show time
Wednesday at Hill Auditorium.
Glee Club members plan to use
the proceeds to make a long time
dream a reality-namely to help
finance a trip to Europe this sum-
mer.

ing of Broadway musicals were
some of the highlights of the day's
tour.
"Nothing like Quad food," was
one comment heard as students
trooped from automats and French
restaurants to Chinese eateries
and pizza houses.
Sightsseeing Between Concerts
Between concerts in Buffalo
many of the students got a chance
to see Niagara Falls from the Ca-
nadian shore.
In Boston, the old North Church
was viewed by interested specta-
tors, while a few energejtic stu-
dents took a business man's holi-
day and toured Harvard Univer-
sity.
Other cities included in the tour
were Elmira, Schenectady, and
Edicott, N.Y., Springfield and
East Weymouth, Mass., East Prov-
idence, R.I., and Hartford, Conn.
Softball Club
Coed softball enthusiasts may
now join the newly-formed
Softball Club, sponsored by the
Women's Athletic Association.
Meetings for the rest of the
semester have been scheduled
from 3:15 to 5 p.m. Fridays on
Palmer Field.

improvement are invited to at-
tend meetings,
