For ’41 As Well as King
The parents of James Thomas
Anderson had little idea 21 years
ago that their son would see the
day when he would be a king. 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. Ander
son will be the center of a royal

WIMBERLEY STONE DANSBY
College and Bryan
By Murray Evans
When a bass man is put on the
front line of a band, then he has
something on the ball that is far
above ordinary. 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
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
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.
Princess Maria Gloria is to be
escorted by Clyde Raley of Ma
chine Gun Troop Cavalry and will
represent the Agronomy Society.

3 Winners of Cofton Study Tour
Revealed Tomorrow at Pageant
The three winners of the Tenth-
Annual Cotton Study Tour will be
announced at the Cotton Pageant
tomorrow evening, Prof. J. S. Mog-
ford of the agronomy department
said in an interview Wednesday.
This year’s trip will be to South
America and will be paid for from
the proceeds of the Cotton Style
Show, Pageant and Ball. It is gen
erally conceded that the Cotton
Study Tours are among the long

The study group will leave New
York aboard the S. S. Santa Clara
on June 20 and will arrive at Tal-
ara, Peru, June 30. From July 1 to
July 27 the group will tour Peru,
Chile, Bolivia and some of the is
lands off the west coast of South
America and will visit, among
others, the cities of Lima, Callao,
Arequipa, Mollendo and Antofa
gasta. The return sailing is sched
uled to leave from Antofagasta and
will terminate at either Ner Or
leans or New York.
The primary purpose of the trip
is to acquaint the students at first
hand with the cotton and other
agricultural industries of South
America. While in Chile they will
give particular attention to the
niter deposits there and the pro
cess of manufacturing these de
posits into commercial fertilizers.
The winners of the cotton study
tour to all parts of the United
States and Canada last year were
Harry Forbes, C. L. Mason, H. L.
Rucker and H. L. Petty. Tildon
