With his aunt, Ruth Draper, he enter- tained a distinguished audi- ence durirg the Fesival of BriMin in the summer of 1951. Parents Are Americans He was born af American parents in 1iorence. His father was a lieder signer, his mother, Muriel Draper, a writer. When he ws of school age, he was sent to America to be educat- ed, but Draper a.nd setroMS did niot blend. He was expeUed from tw private schools and ran away from a third. Draper embarked ma such careers as ditch-digging and shipping as a sailr to Soth America. He was finally re. covered by his family end was sent for a semester to the Brooklyn Polytechnic Insti- tute. Finding mathematics not to his liking, the darmer persuad- ed his family to let him g to London. There ,he landed a job doirg a bit of comedy and tap da'ncirg, tte decided to invade France, but there he wont broke ,and returned to the fam- ily.

Just how the idea came to Draper to "tap the classics" is not recorded. But when he did he tpped a reserv,oir of gen- ins hidden within .himself. His dancing is .a reverati, on of the heights to which Yap dancing car be lifted. He can do leaps that embarrass top flight bal- let dancers. Always his own c.oreographer, Draper cm- braes the brisknes of the tap with the precise beauty of the ballet. j MATH NIGHT AT BETZ SCHOOL SET FOR TUESDAY A "math nght fr parents" will be held at Betz Elemen- taw Shool Tuday  7:30 p. m., Principal LeR>y Isher- wood announced today.
