By FRED EATON City Editor The large audience of adults and young people at yesterday's Rend Lake Civic Symphony concert was treated to a wide variety of musical experiences, as well as a delightful children's art show. Ranging from Mozart to Van Buskirk, the program assembled by director D. Edward Tandy nearly ran the gamut of musical periods. Highlight of the program was the performance of Mrs. Margaret B. White, guest soloist from Indiana University, whose performance on the harp was both delicate and exciting. It was the first time many in the audience had ever been exposed to a live performance on the harp, and Mrs. White's skill and sympathy with the music provided a quick course in what the instnmient can do. 'Episodes," by Van Buskirk, is a^ dynamic modern piece, with complex rhythms and tones and was performed with a special ensemble. The harp part is rhythmically and musically complex, and is quite unlike what most people associate with "harp music." The final number on the program, by Maurice Ravel, was more in the expected vein. A tender and lilting piece, performed with harp and wind chamber ensemble, the number is very Debussey-like in tone and form. It was very well performed by Mrs. White and ensemble as well. The first part of the program, with works by Mozart, Shubert, Brahms, and moderns like Prokofiev and Copeland, was performed by the full orchestra and was well received. Before and after the concert, an art show was open in the college Oasis. The show combined photos of prize-winning buildings, as selected by the American Institute of Architects, with art work by students in area grade and high schools. The architecture exhibit showed modern buildings in Program Planning Meeting Thursday At Webber High The Webber Township High School Advisory Council of Vocational and Technical Education and Title I will meet Thursday, April 12, to discuss next year's program to meet state requirements.

Discuss School Public Meeting Set Tonight At Summersville A public meeting will be held at Summersville Schoo at 7 p.m. tonight to discuss educational goals for the school. Supt. Charles Raglin said the school's planning committee would attend the meeting, but that all interested citizens were welcome to attend. More Ab6v SAW row SON there alone." ! The Viet Cong took her tb a prison camp "in an area of Cambodia," Mrs. AUafd said. "I believe they were going to take me to see tAy son, then, but some trouble came up." ' The "trouble" was a man who Mrs. Allard thinks was an official in the North Vietnamese Army. He was furious that I was there," she said, and quoted him as saying, 'She doesh't belong here. Get hei' out'." Then, Mrs. Allard says, he struck her with his fist. ^ "Maybe it was just his hand, but it felt like he had something in it," she said. "It was a good crack." Did she hit him back? "You bet I did," she said. "I swung around and hit him right back. After all, that wasn't what I came there for—to stand there crying'. I came to see my son." Viet Cong officials came between Mrs. Allard and the officer, and she quoted them as telling him, '"But she's a good woman.'" Mrs. Allard was forced to leave. She traveled to Vientiane, the capital of Laos, to obtain the intercession of an official in the North Vietnamese embassy. Then, she said, she returned, by herself, to the area of the prison camp. "I don't know if this is what he had in mind," she said, "but I used the name of the official-I told the Viet Cong at the prison camp that 'Nyugan Quasing Tung said I could see my son." Mrs. Allard said the Viet Cong escorted her to an empty room. Moments later, the door opened and Richard was helped in by two officials of the prison camp. Mrs. Allard said her son had difficulty walking, and she chided the Viet Cong: "Shame on you for treating these men the way you treat them. He can't stand up." Her son was in the room only two minutes, she said, before prison guards led him away. Blood Program Training Here ~Set Tomorrow the Chicago area, both beautiful homes and giant office buildings.
