“Swing” music and the “jitter

duets o? the machine age, say
experts on music and dancing at
the University of Omaha.
“ ‘Jitterbugging’ is nothing more
than a reincarnation of old folk
dance forms,” Miss Ruth Diamond
head of the women’s department
of physical education, said today.
“The open dance position used

dancing, is centuries old.
Mr. Bush scouted the notion that
“swing” is a serious vival to what
he calls “good” music.
“Swingers of tunes are not taken
any more seriously by musicians
than the average adult gets excited
over the small boy who rings
the door-bell and runs.”
