Music, music, music, Have you
ever stopped to think of all the
different kinds of music that has
infested the American way of
life? If you will stop to think it
over you will
come to rea
lize that there
are many dif
ferent types.
Of course, no
one enjoys all
the variations,
but enough
people like
some of the
different kinds
to keep each
type popular.
Today there Epstien
are many vocal groups that are
hit recording artists besides spe
cial vocal groups. No band of
any fame is without at least a
half dozen songs that have a vo
cal arrangement The man who
Is mainly responsible for choral
arrangements going over to well
Fred Waring's great musical
organization needs no introduc
tion to the student body. Wheth
er you enjoy classical, semi
classical or popular songs you
can enjoy Fred Waring and his
Pennsylvanians. Fred first gained
fame with his glee club in the
atres, recordings, and the motion
' pictures. Waring's basic theory
in choral arrangements is mak
ing each word understandable.
With good reason Waring is
projd of his staff, most of whom
are developed from the ranks of
performing musicians. The
Pennsylvanians have on records
a huge variety of songs, from
pop tunes to spirituals. Songs
under Fred Waring's direction
that you will enjoy are "That
Old Black Magic," "Nutcracker
Suite,w and "Ave Maria."
Although Dixieland jazz has
never hit a peek in the Midwest
as it has in the East, South,
West and Northwest 4t is still in
the eyes of some, great music.
Mysic of this type will never
die. It may fade away for a time,
but it will never completely die.
Dixie will always come back
with new vim, vigor, and life.
I recommend that if you don't
like Dixie you give it another
chance and see what it has to
offer. One of the best ways to
give this Jazz what it deserves
is to listen to "Red" Nickols and
his "Five Pennies."
. When the greats of Dixie are
being discussed over a circular
table the name of LORING
"RED" NICKOLS will pop up as
often as the waiter who gets a
cut of the tab from his employ
er. If you have ever heard "Red,"
but never seen him, you might
picture him as an older man.
However this is not the case.
Nickols is in his early forties,
and he looks even younger.
"Red's" records are many, and
most of them are known as col-

One Cornhusker will remember a
recent lecture for a long time.
It was midway through the
hour when a head which had
been bobbing back and forth all
period came to a complete slump.
The student who had tried val
iantly to keep awake had finally
let fate take its course.
As it happened, a pledge broth
er of the dozzer haprjened to be
sitting beside him. With a fiend
ish gleam in his eye, the fellow
pledge whispered a request to all
of the surrounding classmates.
The plan was to allow the stu
dent to sleep.
When the bell rang, the pledge
brother again begged everyone
to keep from disturbing the
dozzer. As the students left the
lecture hall thev took one last
glance at the peaceful one.
Chuckles filled the air, but the
sleeper dozzed on. All eyes were
focused on the lone figure slump
ed over one of the seats in the
center of the room.
Finally, a third pledge brother,
who had lust come from a dif
ferent class in the same build
ing, discovered the situation and
promptly woke his semi-con-
cious friend.
