PAGE SIXTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER f, 1WT. Med Flory Signed To Residents of Logansport soon may be able to buy hit tunes recorded by a former local boy, Med Flory, and his band; for Med already is under contract with RCA Victor to record with his own band in Los Angeles. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilmer Flory, 1533 Meadlawn avenue, al- .ready has gained wide popularity as a clarinetist, saxophonist, and vocalist for the Ray Anthony band, which has been playing an engagement at the Corn Palace, Mitchell, S. D. Med's very attractive wife, Joan Durrelle, who has been appearing on the Corn Palace stage with the Anthony band, is an outstanding vocalist herself. She will sing with Med's band as soon as it is formed. Med will make a jazz album for Jubilee before he and his new band record for RCA Victor. He is taking three members of Anthony's band with him in the formation of his own band. They are Al Porcino Jack Hohmann, trumpets, and Lew McCreary, trombone. The 30-year-old former Logansport high school student is not a And His Band Make Records novice at band directing. He was leader of the 724th Air Corps dance band during the two years he was in the service. At 'the end of the two years he returned to Indiana university to finish college. His Indiana university band, known as Med Flory and his Orchestra, was successful, playing many engagements in this area. On graduation day Med joined Claude Thornhill, remaining with him for two years. He then went to New.York to work with Art Mooney.-It was while he was working with Art Mooney's orchestra that he met and fell in love with Joan Durrelle, a vocalist with the band. They were married five years ago, a year after they .met. A native of Toronto, Canada, Joan entered the Miss Canada competition in 1952'and missed out for the title by only two and one-half points, singing both the English and French versions of La Vie en Rose. Later she studied on a $2,500 scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. The tall, lovely-blonde has been out of circulation tin the theatrical world for the past year and a half because of the arrival of a son, Rex, now nearly a year old. The Florys make their home in Holly wood, Calif. Now a rhythm and blues singer, Joan feels that some day she will be a good contralto. She is the daughter of Jimmy Fry, band leader and drumer of. Toronto. Her mother is a noted pianist. The six foot, four.inch Med also learned music at an early age. He learned to sing from'hearing instructions his mother, a voice instructor and well known local organist, gave to others. He began playing the clarinet at the age of 9 and by the time he was 11 he started playing the saxaphorie. \ Med always has sung with his dance bands, "It breaks the monotony to get down' off the bandstand," he says. Although his rendition of "Hound Dog," always brings down the house, Flory says he wants.to bring swing back into popularity. His many friends in his old home town believe he can do it. •WTNAMAC—Miss Alice Asmus bride-elect of Henry Mooi Jr. was honored guest at a bridal shower Friday evening held in the home of Mrs. Allen Boos with Mrs. Joe Russell as assistant hostess.

It was onfly last June that Chairman Meade Alcorn of tie Republican National. Coanmit5tee brought X) President Eisenhower's office [. Lee Porter- of Virginia. Porter was then the newly appointed organizaitioraal director for Republican party in the South. He and Alcorn told the President about a "dead earnest drive" to build - the Republican Party in southern states. The drive DOW is dead enough— except for suclh opportunity as may be offered by the improved opportunity' to vote now guaranteed' southern Negroes. If southern Negroes choose to enter the Democratic party, southern whites may be expected to leave it. But for where? If southern whites are not jostled out of t!he Democratic Party by invading' Negroes, they are likely to leave anyway in protest against the presidential candidate and pfetfonm, adopted in 1960 by a Democratic National Convention in which they will have no more than a smai voice. • ' The political instability of the so-called solid South in presidential elections had been demonstrated repeatedly .in recent years. Herbert Hoover modestly cracked the South in 1928 when his opponent was New York's Alfred E. Smifch, a Catholic who opposed national prohibition of alcoholic beverages. , J. Strom -Ttomoind of.

Presidential elections will be majority of the electoral college. That would have placed the election of a president in the House of Representatives, each state casting one vote. Eisenhower carried Florida, Tennessee, Texas and, Virginda^ in 1952, repeating in 1856 with Louisiana added. These break-throughs encouraged Republicans to hope for a two - party system, in the South. Southern strategy got .southerners notihiag more than the satisfaction of recording a protest statistic in the final returns. The tome when white southera conservatives will have any substantial influence in . making national political policy or in choosing a president probably is-far off. They have lacked such influence now for 20 years. Their bid for power lies in the long service of their " senators and congressmen and the committee chairmanship! which uninterrupted service earns.
