Specialists In Rhythm—The Delta Rhythm Boys, above, heard Saturdays and Sundays on a nation-wide hookup, are incomparable interpreters of the spirit of folk songs and expert harmonizers in the modern swing and jazz melodies. They hail from Tupelo, Miss., and started their haunting harmonies while studying at Dillard University in New Orleans. Standing (left to right) are: Otho [Lee] Gaines, Clinton Holland, Traverse Crawford, and Harry Lewis. Rene De Knight, accompanist, is at the piano.
