In November of 1954, his
picture appeared on the cover
of Time magazine. The year
prior to limes cover story,
the quartet won the Down
Beat critic's poll as well as
the reader's polls of Down
Beat and Metronome maga
zines. ,

"Jazz Personality, of the
Year" in 1954 andv1955. The

Freedom Fund
Plea Denied

It was proposed that AUF

ty, had to give its permission
before the SCC could plan a
"We feel it is too late In
the year to plan and con
duct a successful solicitation,"
said AUF president Sue Car
koski. "It would be too difficult to
reach the entire campus in
the few weeks of school left,"
she said. "However, we do en
courage everyone who is in
terested in contributing to the
Freedom Fund set up by the
National Association for the
Advancement of Colored Peo
ple to do so," she added.
They may send their dona
tions to the YWCA office in
the city Union or in the Ag
Student Union.
"Next year AUPwilllnclud
the NAACP's Freedom Fond
as one of the charities listed
in the fall poll," Miss Carkosld
said. "Then the campus will
have an opportunity to vote
for it as a recipient of a por
tion of next year's funds."
