To Sing Swing ,
By Sanford Stein
"I'm unmarried, I'm not in love,
I'm only 18." ,
Thus, in one brief sentence," Connie
Haines, oomphy, pint-sized vocalist in
Tommy Dorsey's orchestra,, summed
up her emotional and chronological
status. "I like my men to be at least
six feet tall," she'added "and to be good
dancers, but otherwise I'm fancy free."
Connie, who joined Dorsey's. outfit
three weeks -ago, was born in Savannah
but raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She
made her singing debut at the age of
three in a. musical comedy called the
Saucy Baby Show. One of her fellow
performers in the show was Pick Ma-
lone of the radio team of Pack and Pat.
Professional at 10
.WJipn'shfi was 10. Connie ' started
her professional career, singing over
the radio, appearing in Florida
theaters, performing as a feature at
traction in Miami and New York night
clubs. One of the high spots of her
rise to success was singing at the Roxy
theatre in New York. She was only
14 and the Roxy at the time was tne
largest theatre in the world. Before
became a member of Dorsey s
group, Connie had vocalized for a short
time with Harry James' band.
"I'm billed as a swing singer and
swing is what I like to do best." Con
nie revealed. "People say swing is
on its way out, but everywhere the
band has gone, swing is what the
people seem to go for most." Two of
Connie's favorite fast numbers are
"Boogie" (her singing figure and ges
tures made this song a big hit at Dor
sey's concert yesterday, ' and "Be

"We aren't playing . more swing
music than we used to, , just better
swin," said Tommy Dorsey yesterday.
He was sitting alone at the counter
in a downtown cafe after the concert,
sipping a cup of coffee and a double
"When I started my own band in
1935, after my brother Jimmy and I
split up, I decided to mix sweet and
swing have a little bit of both. Hal
Kemp, Lombardo, and Casa Loma
were monopolizing the . sweet field,
and Goodman was so far ahead in the
swing field that I knew I didnt have
a chance. . :
"On jobs we play about 75 per cent
swing, and the rest sweet. When we
record, we play about 90 per cent of
the sweet 'pop-tune variety. A cer
tain element like swing, with a differ
ent twist; but the majority like sweet,
so we give them what they want. You
can't give them anything else look

. Accomplished End
By Bucky Harward
Bob McLemore announced last night
that he is "personally withdrawing"
from his position as chairman of the
Carolina party which he organized
last quarter to clean up campus poli
tics. "If the members want to carry on
with a new chairman, that's up to
them," he said. "I neither advocate
nor condemn it. I think the party's
existence should depend on whether
or not it is needed next year."
None of the nominees on the al
most complete CP slate were elected
although several of the candidates en
dorsed by the party won out. Jim
Mallory, nominated by the Carolina
party for the vice-presidency of the
Athletic association, got to the run
offs only to be defeated by Hal Jen
Party Has Served Purpose
Despite these facts, McLemore be
lieved the party has fulfilled its pur
pose: "I think the party has been
successful in that it has served as a
stimulant to the other two parties,
causing them to analyze and improve
themselves. Because of this, I pre
dict that next year we will have the
best student government in years."
"I also wish to express my grati
tude to everyone who worked for
the party," he added. Other lead
ers in the party were Chuck Kline,
general . "campaign . manager, and
Claude Wheatley, active Student leg
islature representative from the law
