The first chorus is taken by the first trumpet, and although it is good, it is still the weakest part of the record. But Shaw comes to bat in the second round and you forget all about mediocre trumpets and concentrate, all ears, on the finest clarinet take-off to date on this old favorite tune. From there that fine' violin sex tet of his goes to work and makes you wonder why anybody ever started calling them “fiddles” any how. A good trombone half-chorus and Shaw again on the latter half take it out to a smooth ending, ably assisted by a soft violin back ground. A slow, loose rhythm, with a prominent bass and distinctive chord progressions throughout, back up Shaw’s ace soloists to make this his very best effort since he organized his new 22- piece orchestra. Anybody that •doesn’t go for it is an incurable jitterbug. The famous Ink Spots will be in Houston April 22 for a one-night- er. It’s a little hard to understand how these five negro musicians will play for dancing, for their type of tunes are more on the novelty side, and their rhythms are a bit too slow and soft to pro vide enough volume or tempo to keep an ordinary dance going four hours. It may be that other musicians will be added, enough to make a full-size band, and that the Ink Spot numbers will be featured by the quintet at intervals. At any rate, it will be a good show, and I understand that White Ink Spot admirers will be allowed to attend and that there will be a section provided for them.

Rosenthal The plans for the tenth annual Cotton Style Show, ’Pageant and Ball, which will be held May 2, are more nearly perfected at this early date than those of any pre vious Cotton Ball, according to an announcement from John H.

Already members of the society are at work building the back ground for the forming of King Cotton’s court. This background will be a colored scene of the Land of King Cotton and will be located in the back of the Memorial Gym nasium as a setting for the corp- nation. Those members of the Agronomy Society who formed the committee to select this year’s Queen of The Cotton Ball and her duchesses report that this year’s girls are more beautiful than ever before. They also say that their task in the selection was quite a difficult one since the girls were selected from the beauties of T. S. C. W.’s Rose Bud Festival and, according to one member of the committee, they had to pick “the beauties of the beauties.” Connie Bindley of Fort Worth was selected as the queen of the Cotton Ball and Pageant. Her duch esses will be Laura Gainer of Me nard, Margaret Trulock of Paris, Betty Bowman of Mineral Wells, Ruth Tilley of Shamrock, Sara Gil- lett of Whitewright, Edith Ellison of Denton and Dava Rabinson of Honeygrove. Sanger Brothers of Dallas is sponsoring the Cotton Style Show. Their representatives have been on the campus several times to look over the setting and have expressed themselves as being well pleased with everything. They plan to bring ten professional models to display cotton wearing apparel now being assembled in New York, Los Ange les, Dallas and other fashion cen ters. Mrs. Margaret Wedell, Sang er’s representative, says that this year’s Style Show will be present ed in an entirely different and novel manner than those of the past. “The floor show at the Pageant will present professional talent which is sure to please the student body and their guests,” Robinson said. “We are sure this year’s show will go over with a bang. Most of the boys have worked on the last two Cotton Style Shows and feel that they know pretty well what the public enjoys. “Everything considered we feel that we are offering the biggest and best Cotton Style Show, Pag eant and Ball that has ever been given on the A. & M. campus,” Robinson concluded. A silage crop can be grown, harvested and put in the silo for about $2 a ton. “Would you mind giving this canary to my girl in Salt Lake City?” Silly of us to expect that much service from anyone. We’re so used to giving su per service ... we attempt to do the impossible. You can depend on us for the finest in oil, gas, tire fixing and other auto service.
