Famed Band
Yet Unsigned
Despite Story
By JOHN J. MATHEWS
"Tommy Dorsey will probably
play for the Homecoming dance,”
announced Dick Williams, educa
tional activities manager late last
night. Ending two weeks of con
flicting rumors, Williams’ state
ment was that negotiations are
still under way, and that a final
announcement should be avail
able not later than tomorrow.
Supporting the possibility that
the famed Dorsey band will head
line the dance are placards
placed in local stores by George.
Durgan, advance agent for the
orchestra. Williams emphasized,
however, that no one can possi
bly know the outcome of arrange
ments still in progress.
The dance scheduled for the
second day of the annual Home
coming celebration, will be the
night of November 7, after the
Oregon-UCLA grid clash.
"We will be very lucky to sign
Dorsey,” said' Pat Cloud, Home
coming chairman. The chief value
in securing a name band will bo
in having an attraction big
enough to eliminate the necessity
of expensive and time consuming
decorations.”
The entire weekend has been
so planned as to require a mini
mum of student preparation,
Cloud pointed out. He reminded
that, since these are serious war
times, the University is fortu
nate to have any Homecoming
celebration at all, and said the
committee in charge is deter
mined not to abuse its privilege.
