Starring 'Peanuts Hucko, Louise Tobin Jazz Concert to Be Presented f 'J, 1 * W «««!. aixl accepted jobs «"«« 'ailing In love with of «,,,.*;,,,,,,. .,,., ^ The Little Diile Concert Association will present the king of the clarinet and his jazz five, starring "Peanuts" Hucko and special guest singing star, Louise Tobtn, at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Municipal Auditorium. All Little Dixie members are reminded to contact fellow members to be sure they have transportation to the concert The concert is booked through Columbia artists festival Corp "Peanuts" Hucko has been associated with more important musical aggregations than the famed cartoon creator, Charles Sehulz, has drawing panels. Starting with school orchestras in Syracuse, New York where he was born Michael Andrew Hucko, "Peanuts' " first band job was with Jack Jenny. "Peanuts" has been playing the reed instruments e.g clarinet and saxophone since he was 16. While still in junior high school, the talents of young "Peanu!s"didtH)t go unnoticed He was asked to join the high school band. Small of stature (all on talent, "Peanuts" was assigned a position between two lanky fellow musicians.. .ergo, . .with great affection, his fellow students dubbed him "Peanu'.s." "Peanuts" left high school at 17-with parental blessings, as tearful as they were--to join the Jenny Band. Word spread through the world of musicians-who have a grapevine all their own-that a youngster with the incongruous name of "Peanuts" Hucko-had a tone, feeling and, most importantly (at his young age), talent and maturity. "Peanuts" by THOMAS JOSEPH was offered, and accepted jobs (over the years), with the bands of Ray McKinley, Charlie Spivak and Bob Chester. When "Peanuts" enlisted in the service, the immortal Glenn Miller requested that he be assigned to the Miller Air Force Band, While with Miller, he switched from the tenor sax to me clarinet. "Peanuts" was soon featured as the lead clarinetist, providing an outstanding contribution to the "Miller "sound". The switch to the clarinet was worrisome at the beginning but, not too soon afterward, this instrument would become the love of "Peanuts' " live. When Major Miller disappeared over the English Channel, the Band was ordered to perform under the baton of a Miller assistant. The contribution of Miller's band during that worn-torn era Is still vividly remembered. At the war's end, "Peanuts" Joined - for various periods of time many of the truly great Bands: Benny Goodman, the aforementioned Ray McKinley, Jack Teagarden, Eddie Condon and the fabulous Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. "Peanuts" headed the "Jazz' festivals-including the well- known Newport Festival. He later became an orchestra staff member at the American Broadcasting Company where he played tor such shows as: "The Firestone Hour", "The Bell Telephone Hour" and then, with his own quartet, "The Dance Time Show." When "Peanuts" was invited to play at the "Summer Jazz Festival" at Elitch's Gardens, Denver, Colorado, he found rZ i ^ to !ov ! with of spectaculars and doing Colorado and a very pretty lady frequent right club work, named Louise Tobin, a singer While la Nw York City L ». 8.

As a result of this she was sent on an extensive tour of theatres and clubs throughout the Southwest. While on this tour she appeared in a Dallas night dub opposite a band which Harry James was playing. Harry was immediately enchanted by this pert songstress and soon they nwe married. Not only had Harry been captivated by Louise, but Art Hicks, the band leader, also fell under her spell and signed her to appear with his band as vocalist. The Hicks Band came east and Louise and her husband left Mr. Hicks' employment, Harry playing with many other name bands and Louise appearing in a number voucsn Bani-i on its Whitney Balliel, of the New Yorker Magazine, in writing of her Newport Jazz appearance, said she was the only "non- mechaiu'cal singer lo appear" comparing her to a "young Biffie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald with warmth and total lack of calculation"!

Many things ahout the American system of banking arc u n i q u e from other banking systems in the world. One of those things is the dual nature of chartering. Some are chartered by the federal government and are most oflen called "national- banks. Others receive their charters directly from their respective states. These are called "state" banks. Even though the charters come from different sources, services offered the customers may be virtually the same and the regulations eich operates u n d e r are very similar. Protections accorded depositers are the same. The dual system tame about in the early days of U.S. banking because of general opposition to a single, "national" banking syjlcm. This opposition to a central system created many strong state banks, so strong that until the 20lh century several state banks issued their own currency. The closest thing now lo a true national bank is the Federal Reserve System, which essentially acts as a bank's bank. Both state and national banks maintain ccounts, make deposits and withdrawals from the Federal Reserve Bank in their particular region. Inserted Today by !Mfc-V ifton Hill, SalUbury.
