He stole their camels as they scaled one of the ancient structures and left them stranded. Alone and unsure what to do next, the appearance of a figure heading in their direction on a bicycle surprised Miss Seymour as she recognized he was an old acquaintance of hers: Thomas Edward Lawrence .

Though bands that played "corny" had been successful before he leapt to national fame (most notably Freddie Fisher & the Schnickelfritzers and the Hoosier Hot Shots ), Jones ' musical vision also encompassed a total assault against the conventions of general show-business pomposity.

That is quite surprising, because the move also eliminates the biggest buyer out of the bond market. The net effect, of course, should pressure interest rates higher.
