chairman of the convocations

The question of who is to play
for the Ball on Dec. 5 has been
one of the big questions in stu

May was associated with two
musical greats: Charley Barnet
and Glenn Miller. His contribu-
tions, "Cherokee" and "Iua"
have put his name high in the
ranks of music makers.
After a stint as an arranger in
Charlie Barnet's band, he joined
Miller s orchestra where he held
down the "Jazz Trumpet" chair
and did some arranging.
When Miller's orchestra broke
up in 1942, May remained in New
York and began working in radio
doing several network shows over
Later he moved to the West
Coast where he was arranging
for several radio programs in
cluding; Bob Crosby's Old Gold
series, the Kraft Music Hall,
Duffy's Tavern, and the Red
Skelton Show. He also made
several appearances with Woody
Ozzie Nelson asked to direct the
orchestra in his show. May still
works on the radio program.
His association with Capitol
Records began in 1946, when he
arranged for a series of jazz rec
ords. It was the record company's
move to produce "dance series"
albums that led to May's "rediscovery."
A number of former Glenn Mil
ler men will appear with May's
orchestra when it plays at the

present programs at the Ortho
pedic, Veterans and mental hos

Was Not Intended
By TOM WOODWARD
There have been questions and
comments galore concerning the
speech made by Chancellor Gus
tavson at the FarmHouse Na
A Lincoln newspaper carried
an account of the speech with
quotes refering to the "Spirit of
Democracy and Mutual Help"
found on Ag campus, that the
Chancellor, "hoped would be
come common to the University
as a whole."
In a telephone interview the
Chancellor said that his remarks
were not intended as being dero
gatory to the Greek letter fra
ternities. He said that FarmHouse
was founded for Agricultural stu
dents and it seemed only natural
to give it such a name. He said
thaUit would have created a false
atmosphere to give the fraternity
a Greek letter name,, for it would
have little real meaning to its
members and their parents. He
added that he did not mean that
any fraternity, with a Greek name
was necessarily under a false

The Chancellor said that he re
gretted that there had been any
misunderstanding of what he
meant in his speech, and said that
the quotes from his speech had
been "lifted" at random, from con
text, especially on .the fraternity
tor of registration.
Many calls come in requesting
addresses and phone numbers of
students. Sometimes these calls
might be urgent, he explained. It
is, therefore, xtremely important
that each student who has made a
change of address go to Room B-7
in Administration Hall and fill out
his permanent address on a card
supplied for the purpose.
Dr. Hoover said that there
is no charge, and that it will not
be necessary to stand in line.

But Eisenhower urged that McCarthy be sent back to the Sen

long as I represent you in the Senate, I shall continue to call them
as I see them regardless of who happens to be President."
Eisenhower made reference to both Truman and Stevenson in
his attack on Communism. He said domination of tie nation's poli
cies by men who scoffed at the menate of Red penetration in gov
ernment "meant in its most ugly triumph treason itself."
GOV. AD LAI STEVENSON said thai -'defense and inflation con

every mention of Sen. Robert Taft with boos.
