Per haps they, as all mothers and fathers, had joked about their son some day becoming president, but the thought of regalty had never entered their minds. Yet tomorrow night J. T.

Those who saw suave, affable Duke Ellington and crew go through their paces here saw the best bassist in the orches tra game today—sepian or other wise. Jimmie Blanton is the name, and he is from Chattanooga, Tennessee. He has been with Ellington only a year and a half, but has been a musician for fifteen years, seven of those majoring on violin. Jimmy plays a flashy type of bass with a distinctly original style and has the best ingrained know ledge of chords this writer has ev er seen. His fret hand moves al most too fast to see over the bass fingerboard. Those who heard him were amazed at his ability to take solos, and also at his ‘triple slap’ lick which put so much punch into the rhythm section. Not only Blanton, but every man in Ellington’s organization is a finished artist. It’s odd, for in stance, to see a brass man double on a stringed instrument, but it was no trick at all for the second trumpet to lay his horn aside and take a sweet violin chorus the way sweet violin choruses were fore ordained to sound. Then there are Johnny Hodges and Ben Webster, satellites of no small brilliance in the dance band world. Cotton Pageant Has “Real McCoy” In Royalty Ranks Royalty has been the key-note of all the past Cotton Pageants but tomorrow night the regal atmos phere at DeWare Field House is designed to hit a new high when a “real McCoy” princess, the Prin cess Marie Gloria Sulkowski, will be a duchess in the court of their majesties, King and Queen Cotton. Prince Marie Gloria is the daugh ter of Prince Stanislas Sulkowski of the royal Austrian house of Haps- burg. At the present she and her parents are living in Mexico City.
