LEO RIESMAN IS
CHOSEN TO PLAY
AT FINAL DANCES
"Well Known Orchestra Is Se
cured by German Club-After
Jones Breaks Contract.
John A. Park, secretary-treasurer
of the German Club, last
night announced that Leo Ries
man and his orchestra have been
secured to play for the final
dances instead of Isham Jones.
Those in charge of the dances
have considered several orches
tras since the contract with
Jones was broken last week, and
they believe that Riesman is one
of the best that can be secured.
Riesman is known best as the
orchestra that plays for the
Pond's Hour over the Columbia
Broadcasting System. Variety,
"which is the trade magazine of
radio, lists him as the only dance
band in its first ten radio pro
grams. This orchestra plays at
the famous Central Park Casino
in New York City, which is
known as one of the finest night
clubs in America, flaying m
conjunction with him at the Ca
sino have appeared such stars as
Ethel Merman, of Girl Crazy and
Kate Smith of radio fame.
Noted for Soft Music
The orchestra, which is com
posed of fourteen pieces, is noted
for its marvelous violin section
Its piano players, and its vocal
ists. Riesman's specialty is soft
music, and that is what has
' made him famous, but there is no
lack of good fast tunes in his re
pertoire. His band has proven
a great success at college dances
in the north.

HARRIS APT TO SUCCEED
New York, N. Y. May 24.
(NSFA) According, ito the tra
ditional questionnaire answered
by the senior class at Columbia
University, the member of the
class most likely to succeed after
graduation is Reed Harris,
whose feud with the college au
thorities and resulting expulsion
from college recently caused na
Harris was also first as "head
wild and chivalrous assertion
'ist " second as "disputant" and
second on the list of those who
had done the most f orColumbia,
as well as first on the list of
those who had done Columbia
the most. . The prediction of
earning-power was sanguine
with an average expectation of
salary after five years of $11,
352. This expectation is all the
more optimistic because the oc
cupations elected by most of the
seniors are medicine and law,
which are tied in , first choice,
with teaching second.

increasing effort on the part of
administrative officials to at
tempt to secure as speakers men

years commencement speakers
have steadily increased in im
portance not only as well-known
citizens but as contributors to
some part of our civilization.
The commencement of 1900, as
were those preceding it, was
characterized by general elabor
ateness. The ceremonies were
replete with the usual presenta
tion of rewards, debates and se
lection of the best speakers, class
reunions, and alumni luncheons
in old Commons Hall. There
were three commencement
speakers in addition to the Rev
erend Robert E. Caldwell, class
of '76, who delivered the bac

the commencement speaker of

somewhat different topic for his
address, "Individual Responsi

land, at that time in charge of
the Carnegie Museum, talked on
a particularly fitting subject for
graduates of the University,
"The Opportunities and Duties
of Educated Men in Relation to
the Future of the South." Dr.
Battle in his History says of it :
"It was eminently practical and
suggestive, and tending to infuse
into the minds of the young the
thoughts and aspirations neces
sary for best citizenship."
