Premier Ngo Dinh Diem emerged as victor in Saigon, Vietnam,
after a hectic struggle for power. An attempted coup by a backer of
chief of state Bao Dai collapsed Sunday, leaving premier Diem stul
head of the government of South Viet Nam.
Diem is vigorously anti-communisi, strongly nationalistic and has
American backing. Bao Dai, however, has strong French backing,
and has been described as a French "puppet." The United States has
appealed to the French to switch their support to Premier Diem in
the hopes that a recognized strong government will be able to with

The reorganized Billy May band

will play for the Spring dance.
May's band played for the Inter

ballroom last year.
Sam Donahue, who is currently
directing the band, replaced May
in 1953 when May signed an ex
clusive contract with Capitol Re
May still does all the arranging
for the band in addition to his

The band first attracted public
attention 22 months ago and has
risen to become highly ac
claimed in the field of popular
music. The group has been dis
tinguished for its "fresh approach"
to popular music and also the
famous "slurping saxes."
Donahue formed his first band
while attending high school in De
troit. The group played for nearly
two years in local ballrooms and
then split to gain experience. His
group" later was the nucleus of
future bands which Donahue con
ducted. In 1938, Donahue took a job with
Gene Krupa, one of the nation's
foremost jazz artists. In 1940, he
worked with the Harry James
group for a short period and joined
Benny Goodman later that year.
Donahue toured with his one bana
until he was drafted. In the Navy
he continued his musical career
playing on the armed services net
work. After the war, Donahue reformed
his own band which toured the
country successfully. He was re
called into the Navy when the Kor
ean War broke out and arranged
for Navy bands.
In 1951, Donahue accepted a po
sition as Tommy Dorsey's assist
