parell until the Sunday papers
come out, we feel that Annie's
new attire will start a great
revolution in the comic strips.
Praise must also be given to
the old bag in Harold Grey's gay
adventures who was responsible
for the actual change. Propo
nents of sartorial conservatism
who stated in their response to
the Pogo Questionnaire that they
felt Annie should retain her
dress were probably very
shocked at the drastic procedure
the old orphan mother utilized in
ridding the comics of the contro
versial piece of clothing.
She burned it!
And little Orphan Annie who
was innocently taking a shower
was completely unaware of the

her shoes too.

Tex Beneke demonstrates his
technique with the saxaphone
on which he has achieved fame
and which he had been playing
for the last ten years, despite
offers from instrument firms to
custom-build one for him. He
has been playing the sax ever
since he was nine when he firir
saw one played and persuaded
his parents to buy one for him.
Later he formed his own trio,

With a mellow, refinished, gold
plated sax, Gordon "Tex" Beneke
has built a name synonymous with
a fresh style of music equaled
by none. Join this with the fact
that Tex has reorganized the Glen
Miller band, they now have what
is --considered to be one of the
nation's foremost orchestras.
This ensemble will be here Oct.
12 at the Coliseum as part of the
Tony Martin show. The wide ap
peal of the show with the Jodi
mars, a rock n' roll group former
ly with Bill Haley, Conn and
Mann, nationally famous dancing
duo and several other known acts
along with Tony Martin and Tex
Beneke's orchestra has brought a
large advance on ticket sales.
Many wonder if Tex's legendary
saxophone isn't the key to his gi
ant success. He bought it 18
years ago before joining Miller's
band, and he refuses to part
with it. Buying it second hand for
$200, he has spent $750 in repairs
to keep it in working order.
"A good sax is just like a good
pipe," he explains. "It gets mel-

dreamed of a career in golf,
playing the drums. Beneke's big
break came when he joined the
Glen Miller Band in 1938. In
fact, it was Miller who gave him
the nickname "Tex", which has
become so much a trademark
that now his given name, Gor
don, is all but forgotten. Beneke
is one of the stars of the Tony
Martin show scheduled for pre
sentation at the Coliseum Oct.
low with age. At least this one
has. I just can't feel at home
with another instrument."
That Tex Beneke's and Glen Mil
ler's name should be linked so close
ly together cannot be considered
unusual, for Tex was part of the
original unit recruited by Glen in
1939 and remained as the main
cog in the band until Miller en
listed in the army in 1946.
When Glen was declared "mis
sing in action," Don Haymes, a
close ! friend of Glen's, thought
carrying on the band would be
a fitting tribute to him. It was
logical and proper to ask Tex
Beneke to head it. Tex before had
always said, "I wanted to head the
kind of band that Glen Miller
had, and I realized it would be
virtually impossible to duplicate
the magnificent musical machine
that Glen had built."
But through the tragic fate of
war, Tex got his chance. A large
band was organized, just as Glen
had planned, and it met with phe
nomenal success. Their first en
gagement cracked every record
in the 26 year history of the Capi
tol Theater in New York. From
then on, they went upward, win
ning polls and popularity contests,
breaking records at the top thea
ters and turning out hit records.
With such numbers as "Body
and Soul", "Embraceable You"
"St. Louis Blues March" and
"Blues in the Night March," they
are an outstanding attraction
wherever they go.

The Outside World:
Mlai, Ike Trade Word
Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson assailed President Eisen
hower Tuesday for his adoption of a "pattern of political looseness."
Stevenson expressed resentment over Eisenhower's reference to his
statements on education as "wicked nonsense."
The Democratic hopeful also challenged the President to "take
the leadership" in a move to ban hydrogen bomb tests and suggested
Russia is willing to go along.
The closest President Eisenhower came to referring to Adlai Stev
enson Tuesday was to allude to the Democratic nominee as an "ap
parntly confused candidate" on the issue of federal aid for education.
He also referred to "political oratory ... at its most reckless
which had charged his administration with failing as "not guarding
the peace and not caring for the welfare of any humble citizen or
any needy family in our land."
He also attacked the Stevenson proposal contemplating an end to
hydrogen bomb tests, saying it is not feasible at this time.
