n Page 6 THE BATTALION Thursday, March 24, 1955 Russ Morgan To Play Saturday Coal Miner Saving Pennies Paid Off Morgan Puss Morgan likes to call his career “From Coaldust to Star dust,” because he worked in the Pennsylvania coal mines while he was saving his pennies to buy a trombone. When he finally got enough pen nies together, he went all the way and learned to play five other in struments besides the trombone. This talent, plus skill in direct ing, organizing, and arranging, adds up to his other catch-line, “Music in the Morgan Manner,” which will be featured here for the Military ball weekend. Mdrgan will play a concert in Guion hall at 7:15 p.m. Saturday, and will play at the Military ball Saturday night, starting at 9 p.m. Tickets to the concert are 75 cents, and tickets to the dance are $2.50, stag or couple. The six instruments Morgan plays are the trombone, piano, celeste, marimba, vibraphone, and organ. However, he doesn’t do all the work. He brings with him a full band of musicians and instru ments, and a vocalist. But he sings a few vocals too. After he was graduated from the Truesdale Mines, Morgan went to work doing arrangements for John Phillips Sousa, the march king, and Victor Herbert, the musical comedy king. His field as an arranger was wide—at one time he was doing arrangements for both the Gold- kette Swing band and the 102- piece Detroit Symphony orchestra. A minor claim to fame of his is that he was musical director and ^ound effects man for the very fii’st Lone Ranger radio program. He was musical director of radio station WXYZ in Detroit at the time. Since he organized his band, Morgan has played hotel, night club, and college dates throughout the country, and has sold more than 10 million recoi’ds. Some of these records were songs Morgan himself wrote—oh, yes, he writes songs too — such as “So Tired,” “So Long,” “Sweet Eloise,” and “You’re Nobody Until Some body Loves You.” Morgan says he tries to give his listeners and dancers alike “an in timate style.” He describes the style as one that is “apt to flow right into your lap if you’re sitting down, and massage your heels if your dancing.” And if you don’t want a mess of music getting that personal with you, you can always run. - Filings (Continued from Page 1) filing, and become a classified sen ior with their class.
