For Ball
The Military Ball will not
be televised this year as it
has been in recent years, ac
cording to Dick Basoco, pub
licity chairman of the' Ball
Several factors figured in
the no TV decision, he said.
. "The, original purpose of
televising the Military Ball
was to call attention to the
Ball throughout this part of
the state. It is the opinion of
the staff that this has been
done," Basoco reported.
"Another consideration is
that televising requires ex
tensive lighting and other
facilities that the Navy, spon
sors of the Ball this year,
feels would detract from the
extensive interior decorations
that have been planned,", lie
"It is hoped," he concluded,
"that the removal of the
lights needed for television
will add preafly to the atmos
phere fid spectator appeal of
the Ball."

Twenty-one campus coeds,
contenders for the Nebraska
Sweetheart title, will be in

The interviewing board will
select 10 finalists on the basis
of poise, beauty, personality
and general appearance.
The finalists will be an
nounced Dec. 4 at the same
time as the 10 Prince Kos
met contenders.
Early Interviews
According to Don Epp, se
lection chairman, the Sweet
heart interviews are being
held at this early date be
cause the individual sororities
and residence halls already
have submitted their candi
dates. The method of choosing
Prince Kosmet also has been
changed this year. Later in
terviews of both groups would
cause unnecessary rush and
confusion, he said.

Complaints Heard-

winner of Down Beat Maga
zine's popularity poll as
leader of the nation's num
ber one jazz orchestra, will
appear at Turnpike Ballroom
The dance is scheduled as a
twilight affair, 7-11 p.m.
Kenton has been 'one of
Capitol Records' top record
ing stars since the company
began. Currently on a nation
wide tour, the bandleader will
be making his first local ap
pearance since winning the
Down Beat award for the
fourth time. Kenton, hailed
as "Modern America's Man
of Music," will present an
orchestra consisting of 20 of
the nation's leading instra
mentalists. Spectacular
Kenton's first musical spec
tacular was in 1947, when he
came upon the idea of for
saking the ballrooms in favor
of the concert stage, a med
ium which he felt would dis
play to better advantage his
musical ideas. This endeavor
was called "Presentations in
Progressive Jazz."
This was later abandoned
and in its place came his
next attempt at innova
tions in the musical world.
These plans required a 4
piece concert orchestra utiliz
ing a 17-piece string section.
The production was called
"Innovations in Modern
77 Cities
"Innovations" began in 1950
and toured 77 cities across
the country, coming to a close
at Hollywood Bowl where
more than 16,000 people gath

Kenton reformed the 20-piece
dance orchestra. His second
concert tour with "Innova

Choice Only Before
Epp said originally Prince
Kosmet candidates were se

as the Sweetheart contend

simply chose a candidate to
represent them at the inter
