chorus director. Monte was cho
sen on the basis of her rec

Pam, a senior, will sing first
soprano. Janine, also a senior,
was selected as a second so-
prano. Barbie, a junior, will
be in the alto section.
The orchestra and chorus are
made up mostly of senior, al
though jnuiors are often select
ed. Usually, the maximum num
ber of students to represent a
school for each division is two.
This is the first year any of
these students have taken part
in the program.
Mr. Raoul Maddox, band dir
ector, disclosed that Mike
Knapp, junior has been chosen
to play baritone saxophone.

selected to play trombone for

the All-State Band find it more
difficult than those trying for
orchestra and chorus. They
must prepare a tape-recorded
audition which is compared to
students from all other schools.

Ashland students to audition
for the band this year. Neither
of the students has participated

At the end of the debate in
Mr. Shank's speech class, all
but two members of the nuetral .
party decided to cast a negative MamOfl Will 11 PI
vote as to whether or not Com- .lOIIICU IlllillCI
munist China should be admitt
ed to the United Nations.
The two who did not vote
negative remained neutral.
Needless to say, members of
the negative party were quite
pleased at the results after ex
erting much time and effort
One member of this party made
a direct phone call to the U. N
Building in New York to gain
information. The party then pre
sented a tape recording of the
telephone conversation in class.
The affirmative party put up
a good fight, though, and lost
the battle gracefully in the
end. One member of this party
said that he had certainly
learned never to fight for the
side opposing the United States
in a United States classroom.
Curtis White was recently
