University of Nebraska," actually, "on the Univer

7.1 -For the firs time the religions leaders of the

faculty or administrative person, combined the
forces of Catholicism, Judaism and Protestantism
to begin a series of non-credit classes.

are entirely separate from any teachings of the
University seems to have been worded in such a
" way that some persons confused the religious lead

state. It is commendable that the slightest infrac
tion of such a principle brings vociferous objection
from the public.
However, in this instance, it appears to The
Daily Nebraskan that this case was not one in
any way effecting the pnblie welfare, or of mis
using the taxpayers money. It was a misunder
standing, now cleared up by Show parties in
volved, and grossly exaggerated in its importance.

A committee is being set up to have certain

The "controversy".of the past few days has been
unfortunate. The Nebraskan hopes that Univer

misunderstanding and not to let it stand in the
way of their participation in the religious courses.

"miracle" fibers and fabrics CAN'T do.
We are all in favor of the new synthetics we

new fabrics with a cautious eye.
For Instance, trouble can

Use of dry cleaning and spot

Cliff, I heard some terrific instrumental and vocal
renditions of such tunes as "Saturday Night Fish
Fry," "You've Got a Date With the Blues," "Wow,"
September in the Rain", and many more.
Before getting into the facts and figures con
cerning how the group formed, etc., I'd like to in
troduce the personnel. First there is Cliff who
plays just about every instrument there is, but
devotes most of his attention to the trombone and
bass trumpet The man who handles the clarinet,
alto and tenor sax, is Orlen Smith. Orlcn also
puts a bit of humor into the novelty tunes.
The bass is played by Richard Manager who
also takes the limelight for a vocal now and then.
Roy Givens is the piano player. His style re
sembles a cross between Oscar Peterson and
George Shearing. Louis Waites tends the drums
and in his spare time plays the vibs. This brings
us back to the spotlight to introduce the vocalist
Richetta. She sings with much the same feeling
as Sarah Vaughn, but with a bit smoother style. .
The band was formed in 1946. Previous to this
the personnel traveled around the Midwest with
different bands. A couple of these were Benny
Carter and Ernie Fields. In 1947 they sent a
couple of recordings to Hollywood, one of which
was an original, "Tear Drops." FM studios re
leased their song and it sold very well in Chicago
and on the West coast Since 1946 they have
played all the spots in and around Omaha.
