'How Do You Like This Color?' Trotter Gallops Along On New Motel Project; Got Start Here By Louis Kraar Bing Crosby's jovial musical director, John Scott Trotter, traded his baton for a paint brush last week to lead a band of workmen renovating an old boarding house here. The music master "gladly" took time out for a chat filled with jolly laughter and many memories of Chapel Hill. Sit ting on the front steps of the old Bryan Motel, which he re cently has purchased, Trotter told of his days at the Univer sity, where he got his first start in music. "Carolina sure has grown," he remarked looking at the thick SUAE Decides To Continue Calendar ssue Proposal To Post New Large Type Calendar Defeated Students at the University will continue to get the monthly ac tivities calendar,, the SUAB cal endar Committee decided last week. The calendar is sponsored and printed by the Student Union Ac tivities Board to give students a schedule of events of interest on the campus. There was a move made at the meeting to discontinue printing the usual 5,000 calendars. A larger type was proposed to be posted in dormitories, fraternity houses, sorority houses, and in University owned buildings. The move was defeated. It was pointed out by one of the members that the calendars had been dumped in the men's dorms in piles "and had been dis regarded by the great majority of the occupants. One coed member of the com mittee said on the other hand that the girls in general were delight ed with the calendars. "It's just what they wanted," she said. Chairman Harry Phillips of the Calendar Committee attributed the- piling of the information sheets in the dorms to a lack of organization . o f distributors. "Next month the circulation of the calendars will be more effi cient," Phillips said yesterday. Herb Conn, a member of the committee felt that the students' lack of .inter est , in. . the calendars will be overcome as soon as they realize how helpful they are in I planning their budgeted time. "Organizations will be able to plan non-conflicting meetings with just a glance at the list of events," Cohn stated. The Coordinating Council of the SUAB which is made up of leaders of some 40 organizations on the campus is working with the calendar committee"' on pre venting conflicts of activities. In formation is obtained also from the Dean of Students Office and the student government office, two major outlets. Groups planning events of gen eral interest to the campus are invited to turn information in to the Calendar Committee b y phoning 5614 or by writing Box 30, Chapel Hill.

Anne Scott, Charles Yarbororugh, Beverly Webb and Marc Gittleman were members of the UNC negative team. traffic along Franklin Street. He reminisced about his short, but happy, stay at the University in 1925. After a week on cam pus, frosh Trotter met with Hal Kemp and organized the now legendary Kemp aggregation. Before long the group was play ing one night stands in Rock Hill, Durham and other nearby towns on weekends. During the week they avidly rehearsed in Gerrard Hall. It was one of these weekends that "lasted a little longer than we expected" that Trotter took the decisive step of hitting the road with the Kemp group in stead of returning to school. The Imprudent Stars 'Put Your Undies Special to The Daily Tab Heel NEW YORK, Oct. 27 Pert Terry Moore took a startled . look at her curvaceous sisters of the movies and warned them they'd better put their undies back on, if they want to be con sidered sexy. - Miss Moore levelled a slim finger at such sirens as Marilyn Monroe, who recently confessed she never wears a stitch under her dresses, Vanessa Brown, who reported she was , shopping for an offer to pose in the nude for a 1953 calendar, and Corine Calvet, who confided she had' to leave notes on her dressing table reminding herself to put on a bra. "I'll take up the moral angle later," Miss Moore declared in warming to her subject. "First, let's consider my main suspicion that girls who wear no under wear are the 'have nots' of the cheesecake world." Miss Moore declared she was firmly, and amply, enrolled on the side of the 'haves' and ex plained her feminine attributes were so feminine she positively had to wear girdle and bra un der her sweaters and skirts! She held an impromptu style show in her hotel suite to demonstrate her points and certainly built up a great case for her argu ment. "I've been reading the state ments from these 'no under wear girls with astonishment," she said. "It's bad enough being a 'have not' but they don't seem to realize they're advertising the facts." A lady who has been blessed f with more than her ample share of curves just can't pass up re- strainers, Miss Moore empha sized. Large sections of the na tion have the illusion that girls like Miss Monroe and Miss Cal vet are exceptionally ornament al, but that's created by tricks of photography. "They're made to look ripe and sexy with cer tain props and by positions in posing figured out for them by talented photographers," Terry said. "A lot of those lensmen are veterans of 25 years and can make something wonderful out of practically nothing." Miss Moore said some of her classmates at UCLA could give the j'no underwear' girls cards and spades in any contest of curves and win in jig time. The generously endowed movie star said she had no reason to fear how she, herself, would fare in such a battle. "My cup runneth over," she said. "It would be impossible for me to go anywhere without un derthings. I'd overflow past the danger point." Miss Moore charged Marilyn Monroe with using self -deflating tactics on still another level or curve by revealing she wore no pants. Most men, she argued, consider such remarks entirely too blatant, even from the pret tiest girl. ' - Terry had no such strong (See UNDIES, page 3) rest is musical history. The Kemp group clicked, mainly be cause of the distinctive Trot ter arrangements, and skyrock eted to fame. Vacationing in Hollywood in 1936, Trotter was asked by tune smith Johnny Burke to arrange some songs for a movie starring Bing Crosby, "Pennies From Heaven." Six months later Trot ter went to work for Crosby as his musical director and has "been with him ever ince," as Trotter himself says. Trotter does all the musical conducting and arranging for the nonchalant crooner Crosby.

The Chapel Hill group's first contribution of $410 was noted in a national newsletter from the now aiding Ruml in the Demo cratic Headquarters. Beardsley Ruml, originator and head of the $5 certificate drive for Stevenson finances, mentioned the work at UNC in a national broadcast. So far UNC has gathered $1,058.
