his first triumphs. It was here on this
campus, four and a. half years ago
that Ted made his debut as a band
Back in those days, the University
put on regular weekly dances for sum
mer school. All of the regular campus
bands, Freddy Johnson, Jimmy Fuller,
and Jere King, had jobs at beaches for
the entire summer, so the school let
it be known that they were looking
for a band for the summer. Ted, who
had been playing guitar with Freddy
Johnson, got the contract. He then
proceeded to organize a band.
Ted's idea from the start has been
not to play swing music and swing
music alone. His plan has been to play
"Music Sweet With A Dash of Heat."
He believes that this type is more

songs that are still being hummed.

dust", and "Sweet Sue".

on the program will be Freddie Cali
