Tex Beneke, Bom In
Fort Worth, To Play
Here Sunday, Sept. 30
Tex Beneke, who brings his
orchestra to the Palacios Pavilion
September 30, was born in Fort
Worth on February 14, 1914. His
parents are of French and German
At nine, Tex saw a boy playing
a saxophone and got his parent;.,
to buy him a soprano sax. He be-
gan to take lessons immediately.
Beneke was “mad about” the sa.;
from the start. He practiced hours
daily and at 13, played with the
school’s ROTC and dance bands.
Tex later formed a trio, with Ben
Hogan on drums. Hogan hadn’t
yet gained fame as a champion
Bands wanted men who
"doubled,” so at 14 Tex bought a
clarinet. He had no time for les-
sons, so he worked out his own
fingering system, which he still
uses. Summers he toured with a
small band. His first important
job was with Ben Young at tne
Texas Centennial in 1936. There
he met Marguerite Griffith, a pret
ty dancer in the show. Three
months later they were married.
Marquerite is from Lufkin.
Early in 1938, Glenn Miller
needed a sax man. Gene Krupa
recommended Tex. Two weeks la-
ter Tex joined the Miller band.
He’d been known as Gordon Ben-
eke, but he walked into the re-
hearsal and said, “Hi, ya, fellas.
I’m glad to be heah!” “The Boss’
(as Tex called Glenn) said with a
smile, “Tex, get out your horn and
let’s hear you play!” From that
moment on, it was “Tex” Beneke
and not Gordon!
Tex is known for his sax work,
but he’s equally famous for his
vocals. Tunes like “Kalamazoo,”
“Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Ida,”
and his masterful sax on “Body
and Soul” have sold millions of
copies. Tex was also featured in
two movies, “Orchestra Wives”
and “Sun Valley Serenade” with
Glenn. He’s made numerous shorts
with Glenn and his own band.
Chicken Rice Timbales
Makes Excellent Dish
For Children, Invalids
Chicken Rice Timbales, always
a good dish for invalids and chil-
dren, has great possibilities for
variation. Add a little more onion
if you especially like . . . and two
tablespoons of chopped oimento'*
for color and flavor.
Too, a sauce of thickened and
seasoned chicken broth may be
served over the timbales althougn
this is not necessary as they are
delicious without gravy.
Chicken Rice Timbales are good
for party luncheons . . . are at-
tractive served with wedtres r>*
tomato, a green vegetable such as
broccoli or asparagus . . . and
a hot roll.
For a larger group, Chicken
Rice Timbales may be made in a
and cut into squares. This saves
flat square or oblong baking nan
time in preparing them as well
as in serving them. Remember,
dishes such as this, made with
eggs, must be served immediately
. . . right from the oven!
1% cups cooked rice
1% cups diced cooked chicken
1 tablespoon finely diced onion
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/3 cup chicken broth or milk
% teaspoon salt
Put one cup of uncooked rice,
two cups of cold water and one
teaspoon salt in a two-quart sauce-
pan and cover with a tight-fitting
lid. Bring to a vigorous boil. Then
reduce the heat as low as possible
and steam for 14 minutes or until
all the water is absorbed, leaving
the separate rice grains with the!-
full nutritional value. This makes
very firm rice grains.
Remove the lid, permit the rice
to steam dry to the desired con-
sistency and the grains will be
separate and fluffy. Never stir
rice, lift gently with a fork. Makes
three generous cups of fluffy rice.
Keep left over rice in a covered
bowl in the refrigerator.
Mix all ingredients together.
Divide the mixture among greased
custard cups or individual baking
dishes. Place cups in pan of very
hot water and bake in a moderate
oven 350° F. for 30 minutes or
until a knife inserted in the cen
ter of timbale comes out clean.
Note: Gravy or sauce may be
made of additional broth and
served over timbales.
