By Walt Dear
When Rotarians settle down for
a dull after dinner addx-ess and
the members are suddenly arous

B. House is the speaker.
This is what Chancellor "Bob"
calls "following his notes" when
delivering a talk.
The audience first gets a few
barSj of "Just 'Because You Made
Those Goo-Goo Eyes," then some
measures of "Buffalo Gals," and
finally, "Roll Along Boys, "Cause
When The Sun Goes Down, You
Won't Roll No Mo'."
The Chancellor has entertained
at banquets,' faculty and student
gatherings and at different meet
ings in the state. Last summer
he scored a hit with students here

Amazed students wondered
last night whether the Royal
Mounties were in town or the
local Police Department had ex
panded its operations. -
But a quick check with Offi
cer G. R. Creel, perched jauntily
atop a stubborn black saddle
horse, revealed that his charge
didn't belong to the Police. He
was merely taking the horse

He refers to the musical instru
ment as a "mouth harp" instead
of a harmonica because the actual
folk name for it is mouth harp.
"I first learned to play tunes
on the mouth harp from hearing
fiddlers play at square dances
when I was a youngster," says
House. He explained that he once
had aspirations of becoming a
singer saying, "I Was always
pleased with my vocal efforts but
nobody else was."
So he switched to the harmon

campus groups ever since.

To Be Feature
Of Glee Clubs
For 8:30 Tonight;
"Joe Palmer's Beard," the
first performance of Hank
Beebe's humorous cantata,
will be the featured work on
the combined glee club pro
gram tonight at 8:30 in Hill
Hall. It will be sung by the
Men s Glee Club and conduct
ed by the composer.
Beebe wrote the cantata,
which is based on an American
folk legend, as part of the re
quirement for the Master of Mu
sic degree. It has been revised
for the present performance.
Hank has a wide and diverse
musical background. He began
organizing and arranging for
dance bands and choral groups
at the age of 14. His many years
study of piano have included sev
eral years here under the direc
tion of Wilton Mason and J. P.
Schinhan. For the past two years
he studied arranging under Liv
ingston Gearheart at the Waring
music workshops in Shawnee,
Most of his choral work was
done with the Sigma Chi Sextet
and chorus, whom he led to vie
tory in three successive Valkyrie
Sings. He directed the music in
the Playmakers' performance of
Gershwin's "Of Thee I Sing" in
The latest " venture by Beebe
has been with the Bell-Tones, a
popular quintet which has ueeri

tunes are those of the Gay Nine
ties and his childhood.
Perhaps the best known of all
his selections is the Goo-Goo Eyes
piece. The Chancellor explained
that this song was originally part
of a minstrel show and tells of
the romance between Bill Bailey
and his sweetheart.
Sitting back in his comfortable
office in South Building, House
recalls the time when he tried out
the uke and guitar but decided to
continue playing the mouth harp
because it "seemed to please
people and I could play it better."
At times House has teamed up
with Dean Roy Armstrong who
plays a solid sweet potato and

is an enthusiastic singer and piano
player. But House emphasized
