on Friday night, a concert Saturday afternoon, and a dance

Anthony, a former trumpeter with the fabulous band of
the late Glenn Miller, plays very
much on the old Miller style. The
versatility of the two band lead
ers is similiar but Anthony goes
in for solos more than did his

Robert Shaw is described by
the New York Post as "master of
every nuance that can be coaxed
out of a chorus . . . probably the
most gifted conductor in evidence
He will lead the chorale, which
is composed of 32 picked voices
augmented by a chamber music
ensemble, in a varied program
ranging from Bach to songs of the
American musical theater.
Shaw got his start in choral
conducting at Pomona College at
Claremont, Calif., where he led
the college glee club.
In Shaw's junior year, Fred
Waring came west to make a
movie, "Varsity Show," which was
filmed on the Pomona College
campus. The college glee club had
a small bit in the film. Waring
was so impressed that he, told
voung Shaw if he ever came to
NewYork a job would be wait
ing for him.
In 1938 Shaw took Waring at
his word and assumed direction
of the Waring glee club, which
soon became an outstanding
feature of the five-nights-weekly
Waring show. " ,
Besides his radio work, Shaw
trained choruses for Billy Rose's
Aquacades in New York and San
Francisco, and also trained chor
uses for Broadway show "Carmen
Jones," "Laughing Room Only"
and "The Seven Lively Arts."

Union Men Want
$2.75 Per Hour;
$2.50 Old Rate
By Rolfe Neill
A three-week old strike of
bricklayers here, haggling
over a raise from $2.50 to $2.75
an hour, has completely halted
work on about $17,000,000
worth of University buildings
including the huge new dorm
which was scheduled to have been
opened next fall.
The only work now in progress
is on Manning Hall, one of the
three new Commerce buildings
being constructed behind Mem
orial Hall. J. S. Bennett, Direc
tor of Operations, yesterday ex
plained that the bricklaying on
this structure has been completed,
therefore work is continuing.
The hold-up on the other pro
jects, aside from the striking
brickmasons, comes from the fact
that all other trade union men
also are out in a "sympathy
