(I***) Advint* , W fenton pupil semifinalist in national test Ftnton — Mr. Gardner of Sentral High School has anrinounced that one student has been named as semifinal* ist in the 1967-68 National Merit Scholarship program. The student is Marlin Berkland, son of the Melvin Berk- lands. The 14,000 semifinalists appointed throughout the nation- have advanced to the second step in the competition for about 2,900 Merit Scholarships, valued at more than $8 million to be awarded in 1968. Semifinalists scored the highest in each state on the Nation Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test given last February. They constitute less than one percent of uhe graduating -.econdary school seniors in the nation. The semifinalists are young people of high intellectual potential, according to John M. Stalnaker, president of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. "From this group will come future leaders of business, industry, and the professions," he said. "These students deserve credit and honor. They have put forth the effort to develop their abilities and to attain academic success. They bring honor to their families, who deserve much credit, as do their teachers and their communities. Their future success, however, will depend increasingly upon their ability to becOTne productive at the high intellectual levels of which they are capable." Semifinalists must advance to finalist standing to be considered for Merit Scholarship, since all winners will be selected from the Finalist group. Semifinalists become finalists by receiving the endorsement of their schools., taking a second examination, and submitting information about their achievements and interests. Every Semifinalist who becomes a Fonalist will be considered for one of about 2,400 four-year Merit Scholarships financed by some 400 corporations, foundations, colleges, unions, trusts, profes- •sional associations, other organizations and individuals, and by NMSC itself. In addition, about 500 one time National Merit $1000 Scholarships will be awarded for the first time in 1968. Winners of four-year Merit Scholarships may receive up to $1,500 a year for four college years, depending on their individual need. Winners of the National Merit $1000 Scholarships will receive onetime grants of $1,000 upon enrollment in college. High school grades, accomplishments, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities, and school citizenship of the Finalists are evaluated, along with test scores, in selecting Merit Scholarship winners. Names of the Merit Scholars in the 1967-68 Merit program will be announced by early May 1968. More than 15,900 students have received Merit Scholarships in the twelve annual programs to date.

The big build-tip, (of the rail TV programs has frt- zled out dismally in my book, while the motion picture industry has come through with some really spectacular entertainment events. The Big Mouth is a typical Jerry Lewis opus and you should know before you enter the theatre just what you are "in" for. A zany, ridiculous, outlandish series of impossible situations, replete with idiotic dialog and .continuous repetition, most "big mouth;" You shouldn't be disappointed in You Only Live Twice — a Sean Connery 007 mystery that follows the same pattern as its predecessors; fancy gadgets, surprise inventions, miraculous escapes from seemingly impossible sit. uations. Regardless of the fact that the James Bond 007 spy series has almost reached the end of the line, the picture • has drawn large audiences and has been a box office success. Set in Japan, the film offers new settings and spectacular photography to lift it out of the run-of-the-mill class. I liked it — so will you if you go for this sort of en-, tertainment. . OCTOBER ushers in the new Fall season and is auspicious for the fact that many of the offerings are "hot." This is especially true of The , St. Valentine's Day Massacre, a current portrayal of those bloody gang-war murders in; Chicago in the 1930's. If this "blood purge" is as interesting and well done as Bonnie and Clyde,, which was one of the surprises of the season, Massacre should be a . nostalgic offering. My own recollection of this famous or infamous event is very vivid in my mind. Following this, we have El Dorado with John Wayne, which I can personally recommend to all western fans. I've seen it and enjoyed it immensely. : The Dirty Dozen has received accolades from both audiences and critics and is well cast and well directed. The Blow Up has been a long time getting to the local screen but is an interesting, adult film. It is one mystery picture I was able to follow even tho the ending was uncertain. See this one. In the Heat of the Night, a current Sydney Pointier picture, is another mystery film with a new "twist." There's the October offering at the local theatre and you'll have to admit, it beats anything you'll find on the "idiot" tube. The movies are still your best entertainment. Thursday afternoon at the church. Mrs/Albert Mitchell gave the Scripture and prayer and Mrs. Shirley Zumach the Singspiration. The program was given by 'Mrs, Robert Huskamp. Mrs, Irvin Solberg and Mrs. Oliver Johnson sang a duet. • MMMMMMMMMMI Servicemen SMMMMMIMMMMM RICHAftD HIININ Ten ten Nhwt, Vittotm (AH TNO — Richard W. Hetnen, 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. Char* tea P.
