By Art Epstien
Usually this column is devoted
to a number of different discs
that I think will be of interest
to you, the reader. However, this
week's column will be employed
to tell you about the number
one band of the year, RALPH
When I say that he is the num
ber one band of the year, it is not
only a personal opinion but it is
also the concensus of the disc
jockeys that were polled by
"Billboard" magazine. Of all the
positions that an orchestra could
obtain by the ballots that were
cast, Flanagan and his crew
swept six of the seven spots, and
was voted second in the seventh.
Research shows that no other
band has ever won so many first
place spots in the poll with
such a tremendous margin over
the other bands of the land. In
fact since the days of Glenn Mil
ler no band has ever made such
a remarkable showing for great
ness. And another factor is the
fact that the Flanagan hand
has been organized for less than
a year. Most name bands have
had to play for long years be
fore they were "hits." How
ever Flanagan, as shown by
the "Billboard," has been a
smashing, driving hit from the
And why is it, you ask, that
Flanagan is so popular? Well, if
you have ever listened atten
tively to his marvelous recording
you could answer that question
yourself. It seems that every
record that he and his org iiza
tion grooves becomes a hit over
night. Proof of this is that of
the sixteen hour broadcasting day
that the program service uses,
Ralph Flanagan and his orches
tra consume fifteen per cent of
this recording time. Once again
proving it isn't the song that
sells, it is the arrangements.
Of course, the arrangements
that Mr. Popular Music pours
into his scores are the types that
the American public wants to
hear. Such Flanagan releases as
"Halls of Ivy," "Harbor Lights,"
"Billboard March," "Spring Will
Be a Little Late This Year," "My
Hero," which by the way is Flan
agan's favorite, and any other
record that is arranged, played,
and conducted by Ralph and his
men is a record that has punch,
rhythm, and vigor, that not only
allows for great listening and
dancing pleasure, but also spark
les with the life that makes the
band the great music maker that
it is, not only now, but in the
years to come.
Some of you might feel that
all this success that has come
to Flanagan in less than a year,
would affect him so that he
would he a man that would be
impossible to talk with. Be
lieve me when 1 say that this
is not the case.
Ralph Flanagan is about as
wonderful a guy as you'll ever
have the chance to meet, He is
the type that you would like to
have as an older brother, fellow
fraternity member, or roommate.
Not because he is such a famous
man, but because he is easy
going, easy to talk to, and easy
to get along with. He seems to
be shy, at times, but he has a
whale of a sense of humor.
The fact that Flanagan is such
a successful man has its draw
backs. Touring the nation with
as many as twelve one night
stands in fourteen days is no
picnic for anyone. And yet, with
all this hussle and bussle he has
not lost the poise that has helped
to put him at the top. He is a
clean cut fellow. His dress is
sharp. Not the sharpness of a
"real gone cat," but the dress
of a person that keeps himself
neat as a pin.
A few personal side lights of i
the nian with the top band are
that he was born in Lorain, Ohio,
on April 7, 1919. He has a graci
ous wife, Hannah. His education
stopped with a high school di
ploma. He didn't start studying
the piano until he was 17. He
got his real start with Sammy
Kaye, and from there he arranged
for Barnet, Pastor, Krupa, and
the rest. His favorite musician
is Art Tatum, and his favorite
band is Duke Ellington. His
main purpose is to play more
dance music for the .public. By
the way the 1aet that Flatianan
entered into the field with his
own band is a thing that helped
save the once dying industry of

FASHION Mademoiselle magazine predicts a white Christmas
this year, with white fabrics taking the limelight in new winter
fashions. White wools, jerseys, and crepes will be featured in party
garments. Also on the fashion parade are the dance floor fa

White Christmas in Fashions
Predicted for Holiday Season
A "White Christmas" in fash
ions is predicted by Mademoi
selle magazine. Home for Christ
mas is the campus -cry these
days, and coed chatter is likely
to center on a full schedule of
holiday parties and clothes for
dance or party.
This particular Christmas Is
likely to be whiter than Bing
ever dreamed. Sheer off-white
pleated wools or white wools
edged in pearls are guests of
honor at afternoon parties. The
white worsted jersey shirtdreps
fastened with chunks of rhine
stone snd the stiff white rayon
and cotton bengaline suit, also
fastened with rhinestone, for an
ice-and-snow effect, are going to
be holiday sparklers. Sleek, close
fitting winter white crepe mold
ed to the figure by slim lines,
set off by quilted pockets and
high picture collars accentuated
with rhinestone and pearl clips
will highlight any afternoon
"White for Sports
There's word on white for the
sports enthusiast too. You'll see
black ski pants topped with a
bright white jacket, or an all
black outfit, a sharp shadow on
the snow. There'll be a dash of
color tori a polka-dotted ascot
and sash or a brillian silk scarf
to set off snow white and
black. For the skating enthusi
ast white wool flared skirts and
bolero with quilted lining of a
bright color, to create a flash of
light on the ice.
At night white really comes
into its own. One dance-floor fa
vorite is the short sheath topped
by a frothy lace overskirt with
tiny black velvet straps and sash.
Another is a billowy gold-dotted
white net, made for waltzinc
with its rayon taffeta underskirt
and matching stole. And still an
other, a short white rayon ben-
galine spangled with topaz glass
a wnue evening dress that
looks like Christmas.
Drift of Tulle
Drifts of lulle, lacy cotton over
taffeta, and columns of satin
with trailing panels will be fa
miliar pictures at gala Christ
mas formals. Bare shoulders,
bracelet sized waists, skirts ruf
fled and puffed, fan-pleats and
side drapes, will be characteris
tic of evening dresses worn by
