That group is Blood, Sweat, and Teats," Thers^rday.R<r4ew said. •The group performs- with a weU-defined sense of dynamics , and shape, without losing the gut . impact . of the best of. rock." As can be seen, music reviews have been generous in praise;; of.. Blood, Sweat, and Tears, and students here can judge for themselves asthe nine- man group appears tomorrow. The Homecoming weekend ap-* pearance, sponsored jointly by Student Social Activities Committee and Men's Unioni begins at 8 p,,m. in Finch Fieldhouse, BloDd,. Sweat, and Tears is unique in that it features a five- piece horn section in addition to the usual drum} organ and guitar. sequence. . The group 'recently . appeared before 34,000 people at the Newport Jazz Festival.and was hailed by a New York Times, critic as giving,'**them(istpolished performance b?the evening..," BS&T has broken, through the, traditional bouriiiries which have separated ••classical" from "•jazz" from "pop" nu sic, and bringing aU three genres together, into one style of music has won the group an entirely new and select audience. Drummer Bobby Colomby, guitarist Steve Katz, saxophonist- pianist Fred Lipsius, trombon- • ist-arganist Dick HaUigan and bass guitarist Jim Fielder formed th* nucleus.of the group two years ago in New York.

Musical arrangements feature each member of the band, and the great diversification of talent and the unique blend of powerful, lyrical, composition are always evident.

Students with questions concerning their academic program, evaluation of class credits and transfer credit evaluation can now obtain definite answers from the new Academic Information Center. "Our primary purpose is to give academic advisement,"says Robert Connell, assistant registrar and director of the center. Personnel from the Academic Information Center will evaluate course credits for undergraduate students on campus and transfer students, consult with students on graduation requirements and individual degree and curriculum requirements and also provide information to undergraduate, off-campus students concerning academic matters. The new office will help to re- *iev© the burden of academic advisement from the CMU Counseling Center and permit coun selors more time to deal with students in other counseling matters, Connell explains. Among the center's responsibilities wiU be compiling course descriptions of aU courses offered at the 31 pubUc community coUeges and branches inMichi- gan. When the course descrip- ■ tion is completed the Academic Information Center will make the material available to the community coUeges so that appropriate officials can advise potential in- . coming transfer students on the transferability of their community college courses. ConneU, said the coUection and t" distribution of community college course description information wiU be an important function of the Academic Information Center since the number of transfer students coming to CMU. increases annually. He said the projected transfer student enrollment for the 1970-71 academic year would total approximately 1,050 students out of a total projected enrollment of 13,800. y STANDING ROOM ONLY tickets for tomorrow's "Blood Sweat and Tears" concert go on sale today for $3 at the University Center Ticket Office..
