Events on February 5 in Clemson's History[edit]

  • February 5, 1943-February 6, 1943: Central Dance Association holds the Mid-Winter dance series with Jerry Wald and his Los Angeles-based band of musicians providing the entertainment for the concert on Friday afternoon, formal dance on Friday night, Saturday afternoon tea dance, and the Saturday night semi-formal dance. This was expected to be the last big war-time dance series. CDA President Tom Stanley stated that he is not worried about the no-driving ban, with almost 200 girls' names already posted promising at least a normal crowd. Flowers for the dance will be handled by Jack Payne and Shine Allan, "prominent members of the CDA." Decorater Buck Miller of the CDA said last week that there would be no decorations this year. Stanley announced the block ticket price as six dollars. (The Tiger, "Dance Roster Fills In Spite Of Driving Ban", Thursday 21 January 1943, Volume XXXVIII, Number 16, page 1.)
