Trade Security Guard Uniforms for Blazers LAWRENCE — Visitors to the University of Kansas were greeted by a "new look" last week at each of the five traffic control booths at the entrances to the main thoroughfare of the K.U. campus. The traffic directors on duty weekdays room 7 a.m.-4:45 p.m. who man the traffic (booths will be wearing blue blazers with the Jayhawk emblem on the breast pocket instead of the uniform of a security guard that they previously have worn. Mike Thomas, director of traffic control and security at K.U., said that the new uniforms will better portray the service that the traffic directors in the booths offer to the students and campus visitors. "They are official greeters for the University and are there to offer directions or other assistance to those unfamiliar to the campus and control traffic onto the campus," he said. "Obviously the control stations are necessary for the management of this campus," said Thomas. This is a pedestrian campus due to the hills and lack of parking lost on the "Hill." Thomas hopes to initiate a student work program sometime next year so that students will take over the traffic booth jobs. "We had the student program in the plans for this year," Thomas said, "but the budget cuts made it impossible for 1971-72." 24 against the Partridge Quails. The Comets took the game 8-0.

However, "it's not whether you win or lose," as the old saying goes,, "but how you played the game." By TARA NICHOLSON Ashland High School ASHLAND - Members of the Family Living class, taught by Beverly York, recently circulated a questionnaire among 140 students asking them for their views on dating and going steady. Students were first asked to give their definition of going steady. The majority of them said that going steady means dating one person only. On the question of the frequency of dating, 46 students responded that they had frequent dates with different persons, 42 said they never or seldom dated, 23 said they frequently dated one person, 19 answered they were going steady, and nine replied they were engaged. When asked, "Do you believe in going steady?", 106 students answered "yes" and 23 said ." Most of the students said that going steady is an in- I dividual choice. Eighty - seven students said they were not going steady and 30 answered they were. The next question, probably the most interesting, was "Do you believe in teenage marriages?" Sixty - six students said "no" and 50 answered "yes." When asked "why or why not," the majority said that they felt teenagers are too young to understand what problems might be involved. Oct. 9 at WSU 6 Chase' in Rock Concert WICHITA — A jazz - rock jroup which has been called 'a cornucopia of delightful frenzy and often awesome musicality" will appear in concert st Wichita State University next veekend. The nine - man "Chase," a [roup composed of former Las l^egas show band musicians, »ill be featured at the WSU Shock - Rock Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, in Henry Lev- It Arena. Sharing ths program for the concert will be tke WSU Shocker Marching ECsd under the direction of John Boyd, ssistant professor of music id director of bands for tht 'SU School of Music. [The concert is sponsored by be School of Music. |"Chase," which is a group tilt around a brass concept or- |nated by its leader, Bill ase, Is a jazz - rock group whose members are musicians well schooled in both jazz and rock. The Chase concept is that the group is "not jazzmen trying to play rock, nor rock players trying to play jazz, but rather a combination of jazz and rock players steeped in and dedicated to doing justice to both demanding idioms." Brass Concept The brass concept, originated by leader Chase and known as the Chase Factor, involves the use of four trumpets as the central feature of the band, and the brass section is utilized heavily and for more subtle musical emphasis than the high - note excitement assigned to the brass sections of most rock groups. The four trumpeters, Chase, Alan Ware, Jerry Van Blair and Ted Piercefield, play both as a section and as individuals. Around the trumpets, Chase has added an organ, guitar, electric bass, drums and vocalist. On drums is Jay Mitthauer, whose background includes working with Bill Evans, Clark Terry, Benny Golson and Bobby Darin. Guitarist Angel South and bassist Dennis Johnson are veteran rock musicians who have worked with Janis JopHn and Bobbie Gentry. Organist Phil Porter has a solo album to his credit. Vocalist Terry Richards, a professional since the age of four, has a multipurpose voice, singing both jazz and rock. Chase, himself, was dedicated to the study of classical trumpet and was the prized pupil of the Boston Symphony's Armando Ghittalo before he became inspired by the music of Stan Kenton. He began a study of lead trumpet styles, and was later the lead trumpeter with Maynard Ferguson, Stan Kenton and Woody Herman. It was while he was working with Herman that he developed the Chase Factor which led to the formation of "Chase." Music Clinic In addition to the concert, Chase will also be the guest clinician for a music performance clinic which will be. held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9 in Duerksen Fine Arts Center on the WSU campus. Included will be sessions in jazz - rock performance, guuar and. composition and arranging. Admission to the clinic will be $1, or the possession of a ticket to the evening concert. Tickets for the concert will be $4, and are available at all three David's locations, all three Jeans' Unlimited locations, at Sgt. Pepper's, at the WSU Campus Activities Center and at Henry Levitt Arena. There will be no reserve seats. "Do your parents approve of your choice of dates?" was the next question. One hundred three students answered "yes" and 16 said "no." The most popular reason for the affirmative answers was that their parents respect their da- cisions. Fifty-eight students said they seldom date out-of-town kids, 61 answered "never," and 26 said ''often.". The majority said they seldom do because they don't have a chance to meet out-of-town kids. One. hundred nine students said that they approved of others who date out-of-town kids, and six said "no." The main reason given for the "yes" answers was that they feel each person should be able to decide for himself. When asked if they approved of drinking alcoholic beverages on dates, 85 said "no" and 23 said "yes." The majority of the students said it depended on the amount of the beverage that was consumed. When questioned, "Would you rather double date or single date?" 101 students answered "sometimes," 14 said "never," and one answered "always." "Would you accept a blind date?" was the last question on the questionnaire. Ninety students answered "maybe," 26 "definitely not," and three "anytime."
