N And as the days grew on ;and the anxiety mounted, there suddenly came , a wave of mes sages sent so quickly that they appeared to come through the air. And there was much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth as man after man in the environs received short messages reading "It giveth me boundless sorrow that I cannot come to the kingdom of Chapel Hill.

Chapul Hil, N. C. May 1.7, 1942 Mr. Ephriam Brown s Bear Creek, N. C. Dere Eph, As you know my gurl Magnolia come up for the weekend to be my date, and i is sorry to tell you that i is very much worried becuz i is dis appointed in her. You recollect she always wuz receiving of these messages and the young sub- mv gal at'home and i has always liked her a lot jects of the kingdom quickly consulted files of notes on other females and quickly dispatched invitations to other young ladies. And in the next few days there were answers that made the youths indeed glad as many of their fair ones condescended to make the hazard ous journey to Chapel Hill. And they first went to a ball of unequaled pro portions where a group of trained soldiers fur nished wondrous music and as the witching hour approached, it was necessary to leave the fri volity of the ballroom and the couples traveled to varied and sundry wayside inns where great repasts of food and wine were enjoyed. but now i see she aint "got -what it takes" as we says up here. O Fer instance Magnolia thot we oughta .go to the dances which- they dont do cept in the lower soshul circles here. Not only thet but she went sober, i wuz afeard thet i would be embarast but sence none of the fellers in our gang wuz there no body saw us. So i did not mind much. And like she dont smoke or drink and she wont neck more than a hour at a time. It is hard to explane to some body who aint a colledge man how a colledge gal should act but there is many little things which Magnolia dont do right. Fer And in the middle hours of the ensuing day, one thing she talks awful plain cause she dont the gay "couples made ready for more hours of. know the "lingo" which us colledge people uses.' entertainment and first traveled to a great tern- And what is awful disconcertin about her and pie where one of the greatest groups of musicians different from the gals is thet she tells me, the in the world had been engaged to play.

Campbell tells Damtoft a joke, Dam toft sneers, Campbell throws a punch AND WE'RE OFF! Phi Delts Harward, Damtoft and Hoke run against Campbell, lock the doors and the news office next door stops all its work for fifteen minutes to sit hack, smile and listen to the cries of battle (mostly Orville's.) The fight ends with Campbell laid flat, the floor bloody and Damtoft cack ling gleefully as he starts his new column and Harward strutting with new editorial power. 5:30 All is dead. 6:00 Rigor mortis sets in. 7:00 Undertakers arrive. 8:30 Air Raid cellar shifts into high. 9:00 Seven student photograph ers arrive at Jnfirmary after battle over who gets to use the two by four Graham Memorial darkroom. 9:15 Two debates, one national convention, 3 double features, 403 club meetings, and two readers of the Charlotte Observer take over (but good) the main lounge. 11:00 Bill and Pete Cochrane and Moll pretend to close up the place. 11:01 Graham Memorial office bull session begins. 11:15 Stuff starts popping. Two freshmen who got lost on the roof in the afternoon break two legs and one arm trying to find their way out in the dark. 11:35 Sink and Hill arrive, an nounce that they have a new poster creation and will be working on it until dawn and not to disturb them. They retire downstairs to their bowling-alley laboratory. Midnight Moll, Meyer, Carruth, Campbell, and Harward start their comedy much to the enjoyment of the gay couples. And in the evening there was more dancing and the: couples strolled amorously through the streets and among the castles of the Idngdom of Heel has 17 more supplements to get out, and who the hell cares about those 8;30's anyhow. 1:00 Graham Memorial is emp tied by starving geniuses ambling The right.

The weekenders had just started pouring into Memorial hall yester day afternoon to see and hear the Red Norvo-DTH-S&F show. Back stage behind a closed curtain Red Norvo smiled, "You know I enjoy v playing for a college audience. I know how they feel, just what they want to hear. .1 went to the Univer sity of Detroit, you see." Red is a very blond young man that smiles 90 per cent of the time. He was born in the middle west, came east, made a hit leading a band, dropped it, formed a new one and is now knocking at fame's gate for the second time. Red's first band was popular around 1938. " It prompted Down beat magazine to say, "Norvo's com prehension of good music never lets one down. He and his band are con sistently fine." "Since then," Red said as he look ed over the rapidly growing audi- ence, "I've spent a lot of time and money rounding up a group of mu- v QJlgl sicians who are capable of playing the music I want them to play. I can now say that I've found them!" By Brad McCuen Berigan, Jack Teagarden, Teddy Wilson, and many others into the r& cording studios. The results wers still available at music stores until the shellac shortage made the record companies cut off all records not re leased within the last two months. Red looked out of his dressing room window at the Y. "Who is Walt Spearman," he asked. "Sev eral people have told me that I .oofc like him." On being told that he is a journal ism prof here, Norvo smiled and said "If he looks like me I know that the movies have never troubled him with screen tests." Out front the audience had start ed clapping and everyone was in his place awaiting the rising curtain. Red called out, "Hey remember t listen to Eddie Bert's trombone. It's terrific." . So was the whole Norvo band. Talent is obvious in the band. Bob Kitsis, the pianist, played with Artie Shaw before joining Norvo. "Eddie Bert is a sure bet for next year's All-Star band," said Dave Dexter, editor of Music and Rhythm. J immy ' Gemus, on trumpet, is one of the dis coveries of this year. Frank Veseley, the drummer, worked up an enviable reputation playing for the Mutual Broadcasting System. Jock Kim is a great reedman, being equally at home on clarinet and tenor sax. "Last week we played for the au diences of the Appollo theater in Harlem," Red smiled. "It was the second time that a white band has played in that house where only the top ranking colored bands are sus posed to play." - Red did not say that the band had to beg off at each performance be cause the audience had not had enough of his music. They appre ciated Red's attempt to play more than just good dance music. Few people will remember what a role Red had in the development of swing. Red and his wife, Mildred Bailey, have been awake to jazz ever since they were aware of music it self. Together they sponsored im promptu jam sessions, and their home has been a gathering place for the ace musicians from 1934 until today. Red has, on several occasions, tak en some of this talent which included Benny Goodman, Chu Berry, Bunny Don't look now but one of our sleuths tipped us off that the far famed Mecklenburg Declaration is nothing but a dirty old forgery. Wat son, track that down. . . . Speaking of documents, a certain member of the Board of Trustees has discovered a piece of music dated 1866 using the term "Tar Heel" a new find of one of the oldest usages of "Tar Heel." More on this later. . . . We've heard strange reports lately of Dr. An drews making his students stay up all night and alter their diets to dis torted . degrees in order to discover new biological and psychological ef fects. It's great to be a guinea pig. ... Interesting to note that the li brary subscribes regularly to the Daily Worker and New Masses. Bound .copies of the Masses date back to 1931. No comment. . . . Some things happen around here so slowly that even DTH reporters don't see them. Witness the present labor shortage. Not a restaurant or cafeteria on campus or in town isn't in serious straits. Fifteen Negroes working in Lenoir hall recently walk ed out together to take on war jobs. And town eateries welcomed the new midnight-beer rule because they are being forced to close down earlier and earlier because there isn't any body to do the work That Carr- boro munitions plant is now choosing its 150 workers from a flood of ap plications, among which, incidental ly, can be found a number of UNC student applications f rom boys who will quit school as soon as they hear the magic word, come-work-for-me. . .
