Satchmo Set For Saturday Jazz Show

Alumni Set Goal; (onstruction Starts

Final arrangements have been made for the Luois Armstrong Concert to be held Saturday night at the Pasadena Civic AUditorium. Louis, flanked by such stars as the Firehouse Five Plus Two and Jackie and Roy, will present what is acclaimed to be as fine a Dixieland and Modern concert as can be found. According to Bob Johnson, who is in charge of the program, these artists are among the most .~ought after in the business, especially the Firehouse Five Plus Two which rarely makes public appearances of any kind. and makes none very far from their Pasadena homes. Senout Seen Although, if present trends continue, the concert will be a sellout, tickets are still availa ble through the news bureau and student house representatives for $1.50, $2.00, and $2.75 with student discount and $1.50. $2.50 and $::l.25 without.

An ambitious program of reorganization is being carried out, according to Stephens to insure greater efficiency within the organization. Photographers and processors will each be paid twenty-five cents for every picture sold to the Rig T or the California Tech. The Photo Division also plans to establish a program of more extensive sales of pictures to both students and faculty. Nominal prices will be charged to students interested in buying pictures in the future. Tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Big T office there will be a meeting of all those interested in contributing to the Photo Division during the coming year. Anyone interested in photography, processing, or the business aspects of the division is encOUl'aged to attend this meeting.

Heard From The Wings


Campus Columnist Commends Cliburn Concert by Joel YI'Ilin It will be recalled that the pianist from Texas, Van Cliburn, made quite a stir during hi" last tour. He wa" an instant hit in the Moscow competition: his Bowl concerts here were jammed to the bursting point.

The most well-known piece in hb; repertoire is of course the Tchaikovsky B-flat Piano Concerto, a work which has been hackneyed, stripped of it~ appeal, and performed to the saturation point. Very few contemporary artists give- it a treat ment which retains an element of individualism and yet lends it a universal appeal. Cliburn has recorded the piece on RCA and, aided by wonderful engineering, has achieved the afore mentioned effect.



Exit Libris

In my opinion there are only two or three really definitive reo cordings of this concerto: the Gilel" recording with Reiner and the Chicago; the Horowitz recording with Toscanini and perhaps Artur Rubenstein's per· formances of five or six years ago. Cliburn's performance is

only slightly inferior to those mentioned.

That high unconsortable oneHis love is his companion.

Good Techniqul's The difference is in an exce,;s of formalism and a lack of drive, especially in the tutti passages of the first movement. Techniquely no objections can be raised. The difficult octave scales in the first movement are amazingly fluent. 'With experience it is difficult to say just how far Van Cliburn can go. His present status seems to indicate he can easily become an artist of tremendous proportions.





As an addition to the "Heard From the Wings" esoterica already published in previous columns, r present the following poem without critical comment, hoping that some will pursue this branch of this author's work further. (It is unfortunate that such literature has to be classed a" e"oterica but r feel that it is rather ignored.) He who hath glory lost, nor hath Found any soul to fellow hi" Among his foe" in scorn and wrath Holding to ancient nobleness,

Returning again to records, very much played on campus is the recording made by a group called the King8ton Trio. If one doesn't bother to listen tOG closely the music is enjoyable. However, the record is a bit er· atic. The blend is sometimes ragged and the guitar occasion· ally falls out of rhythm with the singers. Also one member of the group seems overly preoccupied with his enunciation (an interesting phenomennon in view of Elvin, calypso, rock & roll, etc.) to the point where loudly crossed "t's" become annoying. This writer will be extreJJ;lely interestea in their next LP, since in some bands they show an amazing feel for American folk music. "Tom Dooley" is high on hit lists across the country.

There is a paragrah entitled "Application" in the official Institute pamphlet on the Honor System. Halfway down the paragraph is a sentence that reads: "The Honor System also appl ies to attendance at physical education periods, to the observance of library regulations, and to the safety of books, materials, and other personal property around the campus." The bold face is ours, and has been added to remind Techmen of a fact that a number of them have come to neglect lately: observance of Iibrary regulations is covered by the Honor System, and these regulations should be followed with the same scrupulousness that Techmen apply to taking tests and doing classwork. That the regulations are not being scrupulously followed is a situation well known to students who have occasion to use books off the reserve shelf. They know that when the competition for a particular set of books becomes a little stiff, observance of the Iibrary regulations is Iikely to break down. Probably it is because of a general lack of awareness of this facet of the Honor System, along with some carelessness and rationalizing, that Techmen have permitted themselves to disregard these regulations. Jim Wilkinson has promised to clarify the Board of Control interpretation on the matter in the next issue of the Cal ifornia Tech. We are sure that once the status of library regulations under the Honor System is made clear, students will discontinue their careless Iibrary procedures.

Student Theaters Present Wide Format

Jazz Seat

by L.

by Lloyd Kamins The Curtis Counce Group Contemporary C 3526 featuring: Harold Land, tenor; Jack Sheldon, trumpet; Carl Perkins, piano; Prank Butler, drums; CUl1,is Counce, bass. Harold Land is thE' star on these sides, but this is not meant to imply a case of a group backing a soloist. This quintet is one of the most tightly knit and unified groups on the modern azz scene. Although the group has been together for only a relativesly short time, the communication between the individual musicians is highly developed. The rhythm section works like one man, laying down a solid foundation for the soloists. who blend like blood brothers. VeriIe Tenor As 1 mentioned above. Land is the major voice. One of the most emotional and aggressive of the younger tenor men, he maintains a constant level of excitement. Land's tone, on swinging things, is big and full, with a sharp edge. Obviously Parker influenced, Land manages to form his own distinctive sound, and to blow his own moving ideas. it is pleasing to view the progress of Jack Sheldon over the past few years. Some years back, he was caught in the cliche filled quagmire of West Coast Jazz. He played wholly

superficially and failed to really find the song. Now, Sheldon grooves. Still a ways from major stature, Sheldon is blowing well. He has developed a warm tone, and tends to play simple, wellchosen phrases, in the manner of JYIiles. The untimely death of Carl Perkins deprived the j a z z world of another Horace Silver. He was the funkiest. Carl never found it necessary to think of ;swinging, it was just natural. His camping on these tracks does much to make the session. 'Vine·Dark Ballads The ballads are extremely well done although the group excel;.; in way-down blues. Land changes his tone on ballads, producing a rich whisper. It's dark room, sit-and-dream type music, setting a compelling mood. Land sounds like a big, but gentle, male nur:::e, cradling a tune in hb arms. Sbeldon all the while allows nice little phrases to ooze quietly from hi" horn, complementing the pervading aura of peace and contentment. Remember, however, that thi" group b primarily hard bop. Except for the few hallads. the tracks are earthy and swinging. Counce was the leader of the back-to-the-East movement on this coast. l'\ow all the tE~nors are deepening their tones. and (Continued on page 6)


Top offering on local stages this week is Gore Vidal's hilarious comedy, Visit to a !-lmaU Planet, which Joel Yellin ably re\-iewed last week. However, the local theaters all seem to be starting the season off with comedies, so a wide choice is available. If you don't feel like splurg-

Wilder's fascinating history of man, By the Sldn of Our Teeth. This is part of a series being presented by advanced students of the Playhouse in cooperation with the Ford Foundation. Coming up in the series are Death of a Salesman, RUR, and other experimental and modern plays. They will be presented to the general public for three nights, then to an adult education class for three more. Sldn will open October 24. A couple of blocks east of the Playhouse, the lesser known Town Hall Theatre is filling its center stage with The White Sheep of the Family. Although I haven't seen this, I am assured that it is hilarious, and that I can't reveal a bit of the plot without spoiling the shock value. Watch for a review of this next week. Shows are on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

This play, co-authored by George Savage, a professor at UCLA, is set in Verily, Kentucky, and the Altadenans are looking for "four strapping youths" to play mountain boys who come a-courtin', w hie h strongly suggests that there might be females about.

A total of ten male parts will be filled Sunday night, so if you

I haven't ,;een this production, but past experience indicates that you have about a 70-30 chance of seeing an excellent production in the student theatres. and the :10 percent are quite adequate. Hernardine opens Friday night, and will run for a week. The ,student theatres are dark on Sunday nights.

Tech Gridders Will Try Again Oppose Sogehens Tomorrow Night

Tankmen Drop Thriller; Then Edged By Alumni br Carl Gottschall'

Caltech's water polo team dropped a very close, exciting contest to Santa Barbara in the third overtime period, 8-7. Santa Barbara had jumped off to an early lead and stayed ahead despite the Beavers' gradual whittling of the margin until standout Dave Tucker made a terrific shot from half court in the closing seconds to tie the game ,It G-G. For the benefit of those unfamiliar with the rules of water polo, if the score is tied at the end of the four regulation seven-minute quarters, two fiveminute overtime period,.: are played. In this particular game. by mutual agreement of both coaches because of the lighting. the periods were three minutes in length. Hudden


Goalie Don Wiberg looked exceptionally good in this game as well as in the first. Bob Pailthorpe, high scorer for the Beavers, and Keith Brown ha\'e both been impressive in their down court action, as have Dave Tucker on defense.

Tech made five first downs to thirteen by Redlands and made a net gain of only 61 yards against -101 by the Bulldogs. In contrast to the LaVerne game in which the de-. fensive line held to a minimum, the Beavers yielded 277 of those yards on the ground at an ,IVerage of six yard" per play.

AS I SEE IT -Pomona Presents

Backfield Shif, To Vary Offense by Russ Pitzer

This Friday's game with Pomona in the Rose Bowl should be an interesting one in several respects. The last time we faced Pomona was two years ago, again in the Rose Bowl, since last year's game was cancelled due to the flu and the fact that we could not agree on a date after the regular season. The game will be an all single-wing game, but the offenses will be quite different. I saw the Pomona-Cal Poly (San Dimas) game last Saturday, and Pomona is using the same classical single wing they've always used. The line is unbalanced and the formation is always strong right. An unusual feature is that the blocking-back's position is moved a bit so that he can take the pass from center as well as the fullback and tailback.

THE POMONA PLAYS, both passes and runs, appeared to be different from Caltech's. Their favorite play seemed to be ;1 wingback reverse to the weak ;.;ide in which the tailback tos,,ec: a short shovel pass forward to the wingback as he goes by.

On The Interhouse Scene

Softball Opens; Runners Ready • Softball Defensive errors and wildness by starting pitchers led to two upsets in the opening games of the interhouse softball circuit. On Monday, Dabney outplayed defending co-champion Ricketts to an 11-4 tune. The Darbs took a commanding lead in the second inning after Carl Morris walked the bases full and held on for an easy sweep although guilty of numerous infield and outfield miscues. Pitcher John Lohman showed sharp control for the victors. Supposedly strong Blacker ran into a tough Fleming pitcher Engleberg who started and starred for the Flems two years ago. Blacker starter Fred \Veber was unable to locate the plate in the first inning, and Fleming jumped to a four-run lead and extended the advantage to 11-2. Blacker showed

,,-:trength, but weakness around the infield. Throop is reported to be the team to beat with key men returning from last year's cochamps, including ace pitcher 'vVayne Groesbeck, and top hitter:.; Jac Petersen, Don Walker. and .J ohn Stence. •

Cross Country

Ricketts appears to be the class of the cross country competition opening Friday, since they are ready to enter outstanding frosh prospects. Dick Tuft, Boh .Juola, and Art McGarr. Barring injurie", the RO\vdies should tally the :2'1 first place points.

Coach Tony Leonard forecasts a top season for his frosh cross country team, looking forward to several victories in the five-meet schedule. Outstanding hope for first place lies in Dick Tuft, wilo has turned in consistently rescpectable times in early workouts. Art McGarr and Bob ,Juo]a are reported to show great promise and should furnbh heleiul support.

Pit and Paddock


Wins In


by Bob Norton

Daigh Wins

The United States Auto Club race at Riverside last weekend went off without a hitch as Chuck Daigh drove a faultless race in a Reventlow Automobiles Scarab. In Saturday's qualifying, Lance Reventlow wiped out the right front suspension on one of his three cars; it was beyond repair for Sunday's race. Lance then took over the Scarab that Bruce Kessler was supposed to drive and qualified for third place on the starting grid.

Dan Gurney held a strong second place after Hill's pit stop, ready at any time to take over the lead if Daigh had any troubles; but the Scarab ran perfectly in spite of a complete lack of brakes on the last few laps. Bill Krause finished third in a D Jaguar, with Behra in the RSK Porsche finishing fourth overall and first in the under two litre division. Chuck Daigh's victory with the Scarab in this race has established both driver and car as top rank competition. All that remains now is for Reventlow Automobiles to build a series of Grand Prix machines. and these will reportedly be ready "ometime during the 1959 "ea"on.

N l'umann, Rl'venthlow Out

On the starting grid Sunday were Chuck Daigh in a Scarab in pole position after qualifying in 2:04.03, Phil Hill in a special lightweight 4.1 Ferrari with 2:06.0, and Lance Reventlow in a Scarab with 2:08.01. As the first turns came around, John von Neumann in his 4.1 Ferrari smashed into the rear of Lance Reventlow';,: Scarab. damaging a leak in the gas tank of the Scarab, forcing the retirement of both cars. Daigh and Hill drew away from the field and engaged in a tremendous duel for first place, changing the lead several times and going around the course literally wheel to wheel. It was a "hattering experience to see the Scarab and the best that Enzo Ferr3ri can produce come drifting up the esses together. However, this couldn't last all race: Hill's Ferrari quickly developed fuel feed difficulties and was forced to make a pit stop. Hill reentered the race, but he was then over a lap behind Daigh and since the Ferrari continued to h3ve troubles. Hill eventually had to retire.

The Caltech branch of the SAE has announced that its first meeting will feature Chuck Daigh. who is chief engineer and tester for the Scarabs, as well as being an excellent driver. This should be a good opportunity to meet one of the top men behind what will soon be a major force in international competition.
