fighter he was testing crashed
eight miles northeast of Urbana,
The son of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace
P Holcombe, 2426 Whitmore Lake
Rd., died in the crash that hap-
pened 1/a hours after 'he took off
on a routine test flight. Holcombe
was a test pilot for North American
Aviation, Inc.
Holcombe, who had been em-
ployed by the company since 1954,

tatives of various NATO nations.
Holcombe, who was barn in
Greencastle, Indiana on October
25, 1923, came to Ann Arbor with
his family in 1938. He was grad-
uated from Ann Arbor High School
in 1941. He was president of the
"M" Club and a member of Michi-
SAE Member
He was a member of the Sigma
Alpha Epsilon fraternity and cap-
tain of the wrestling team in his
senior year. He had served in the
Naval Air Corps as a pilot during
World War II and was discharged
a lieutenant in 1949.
After investigating the scene of
the crash, North American officials
made no statement as to what the
cause might have been.
Holcombe is survived by his wife,
the former Nancy Hilton of Ionia;
a son, Steven, 3, and a daughter,
Susan; 1; a brother, Phillip W. of
Cleveland, and his parents. An-
other brother, David, was killed as

To dreamy eyed couples floating
along a cozily lit dance floor, the
music may seem a personal mes-
sage from Cupid's book of lullabys,
but to the leader of the band and
the chairman of the dance, it is
strictly business.
Like waiting on tables, playing
weekend jobs with a band is an-
other time honored way of "Work-
ing One's Way Through College."
However, it is a somewhat more
enjoyable method, with each mu-'
sician often getting around $15 for
each "gig," or job. But such em-
ployment involves more than
merely picking up a horn, a fewl
sheets of music, and riding over,
to some dance or fraternity party.I
Bud-Mor Agency
Giving the downbeat to much of'
the musical activity on campus is
a teacher in the Ann Arbor School
system, More Richman, who heads
the Bud-Mor booking agency.
Started a year ago with four bands,
the agency now fronts for 18
groups-practically every major
band on campus.
Through his constantly ringing
phone, equipped with an automat-
ic answering device, come the in-
quiries about bands from chair-
men, and the requests for jobs
from musicians.
"Most of the musicians playing
are students, but a surprisinglyI
large number-perhaps more than
half-are not in Music School,"
observed Richman who this sum-l

mer received his Master's in Edu-
"Besides the law and med stu-
dents, the local bands contain
dentists, teachers, a University
meteoroligist and even some pro-
fessors," he added.
Quality Has Risen
"The main thing is whether
they can play. With most of an
agent's business depending on re-
peat jobs, I think the quality of
music on campus has risen in the
last year,
"Bands must be versitile, having
the ability to play everything from
novelties to cha-chas." Talking.
about trends in music, Richman
admitted that even rock and roll
was being added to repetoire of
campus bands.
"The main thing is fitting the
music to the type of affair such
as lining up a Latin American
band with a Miami Beach party."
To get the band they want, many
social chairmen contact the Bud-
Mor Agency months ahead of time.
"Some groups lined up their
parties back in last June, and some
are already booked for February.
Richman observed. "It's almost a
necessity, for these musicians are
really busy."
And what do the players think
of. their "gigs." As one clarinet
player expressed, "Man, it's real
great work, if you don't mind
watching the other guys having
fun with the chicks."

"I'm learning more every day-and like it"

You'll enjoy the brisk Fall air a lot more when you meet
it in a warm and good looking sweater. And, the new
sweaters are a mighty good looking addition to your
wardrobe for all casual occasions.
Good looking and extra warm crewnecks are proving
most popular this year. teveral models have reinforced,
non-stretch neck bands that will keep their shape per-
manently. To carry the style trend a bit further, turtle-
necks are also available.
Colors of every type are waiting your selection-includ-
ing several you've never seen before. These newcomers are
brand new blends of tweed gray and tweed black that will
look like a million with any color slacks or shirts. Other
outstanding new tones include a British blue and a Cam-
bridge gray.
The sweater that is proving most popular at Wild's is
made by Lord Jeff', is hand washable, has the non-sag
crewneck, is moth repellant. This sweater is made of
finest shetland wool that is soft, lightweight and dur-
able, and it sells for just $10.95.
There's a new idea in V-neck sweaters this year, for
wear under a sport coat or alone. This is the Forstmann
Lamb's Wool in flannel blue or flannel gray. The special
style touch comes with the availability of socks that
match the color of the sweater! This is just a little thing,
but the kind that marks you as a smart dresser on a
date or any other occasion.
The kind of sport coat you'd like to sport is up to you
entirely-patterns and colors are so varied at Wild's this
year, you can choose a coat to fit any mood from quiet
dignity to abandoned celebration.
Wild's University Model sport coats are tailored by
Varsity-Town in the same modified Ivy League style that
is reflected in our popular suits. This means modern,
straight lines with plenty of comfort and top-notch good
Fabrics run from cashmere-like vicara and supor-
smooth camel type fabrics to the knubby good looks of
big yarn Watermill Tweed. Another imported tweed model
features a stripe-over-tweed design that is bold but in the
best of good taste, and a mighty inspired choice.
Colors include the new Currency-Green that goes
equally well with gray or brown slacks to give you twice
the mileage and a new color touch in your wardrobe.

District Plant Superintendent for the
11,000 square miles of the Huron, South
"The openings are there," says Roger,
"and the telephone company trains you
to fill them. I joined Northwestern Bell
in 1950 and spent one year learning pole
line and cable construction. This, plus
short periods in other departments, gave
me a good telephone background.
"My experience really grew when I
became an installer-repairman, then a
construction crew foreman, and, in 1952,
Wire Chief at South Sioux City, Ne-
braska. There I was responsible for the
3500 dial phones that served the town.

In.March of 1954 I went to Grand Island,
Nebraska, to help supervise dial conver-
sion projects in that district. Everything
I'd learned to date came in handy on
that job.
"A year later I went to Omaha on a
staff assignment, and in March, 1956, 1
moved up to my present position.
"I head a group responsible for install-
ing and maintaining Plant equipment in
the Huron district. We supervise ordering
and distributing supplies, and I'm re-
sponsible for personnel and employment.
I work with other department heads in
the administration of our district.
"Each assignment I've had has been
broader than the last, and believe me, the
more I learn, the better I like it."
