OHIO UNIVERSITY'S Alumnus No. 1 is another man of huge bulk: Frank Crumit, radio network singer heard Sunday afternoons from coast to coast. A Phi Delta Theta, he once returned for a visit and gamely sang two of his own songs on a serenade program in front of Lindley Hall. To those who asked who Frank Crumit was, came the information: a jovial undergraduate with baseball and football ability, he left Ohio U. in 1912 to study music in Cincinnati. Thence, by way of vaudeville, he was featured in Broadway shows like Oh Key, Betty Be Good, and No, No Nanette.

These were shows dedicated to girls, among them a stage star, Julia Sanderson, whom Frank married in 1927. They now co-star on the networks. To Ohio U., Frank Crumit, ex 12, has dedicated two songs. The Buckeye Battle Cry of Ohio State is also Frank's work, as is Gay Cabaliero. The latter is one of those things Frank can really deliver.
