HARVARD JITTERBUG SWINGS WITH DORSEY IN NEW SERIAL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Tommy Dorsey turned novelist and Harvard became the scene of yet another newspaper serial, as the first installment of "Love in Swingtime" appeared in the Boston Evening American last night.

The famous syncopator's story, written with literary assistance, is autobiographical in form, although all characters are fictitious. The first chapter opens at a "Swank Harvard affair" when an undergraduate approaches Mr. Dorsey and asks to be allowed to play a number.

The student, named Biff, Brown, turns out to be a Junior. "I hate the classes, the professors, the books. Outside of Harriet, the only thing I love is my clarinet," he remarks. Although Brown seems pretty sure of a job, trouble can be anticipated from Harriet, who is described as being a "co-ed."
