TWO IRONWOOD DAILY OLOK, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, MAY 8,196S. Student Program At Club Meeting Well Received BESSEMER—Applause of encore demanding proportions by Bessemer Woman's Club members evidenced their apprec i a - tion of the performance of student artists who entertained at the dessert-luncheon meeting of the club earlier this week. Featured were students of the A. D. Johnston High School in a program of dramatic readings, instrumental and vocal music selections, presented by Speech Coach Mrs. E. J. Oas, Mrs. Willow Tallio and Fred Tezak, vocal and instrumental music directors, respectively. Club members were dee ply inspired by the high caliber of the young artists as reflected in their program which gave evidence of their interests, talents, and attitudes, as well as the excellence of their performance. In the discussion after the program, several club, members expressed the opinion that "we need not worry about the future youth like these will soon hold the reins." Club members regretted that the publicity on youth of today, features largely acts by the small percentage of delinquents and degener a t e s, and little attention is paid to the high personal character, abilities and worth while amibitions of the great majority of youth. The youthful dramatic readers impressed their listeners by their interpretation of their selections, their characterizations, their faultless delivery, and their personal charm. The trio performing, who were ludged superior in local and district contests, will enter the U. P. Regional this weekend in Marquette. Miss Barbara Ippolite, in the oratorical declamation, "The Return of the Square" impressed the change in youth attidues toward the so-called "square," the student who stands for the right in all factors involved in living. John Bonovetz gave a most convincing characterization of "The Madman" from Char 1 e s Dickens "Pickwick Papers" a dramatic monologue, and John Ford delighted his listeners with a humorous selection, a cutting from "Green Pastures" by Mark Connely. in dialect, relating the episode of Ood's commands to Noah relative to the building of the Ark. Equally Impressive were the musicians in their respective performance of selections impressing truness of tone, rich harmony, and profess! o n a 1 stage presence and appearance. Instrumental music featur e d was a clarinet quartet in the selection "Candid Clarinets," by J. Morrissey, which won them superior rating in "A" class music in the Wisconsin district solo and ensemble competition in Ashland. The personnel included Donna Poljack, Pat Erickson, Theresa Weber and Joy Borseth. The spirit of vocal groups, Kinging as though they enj o y e d singing, was caught by their listeners. A girls' ensemble of 14 voices harmonized "Johnny Has Gone tor a Soldier," an Irish folk song with flute obligate by Jo Lee Works, "Do, Re, Mi" and "Climb Every Mountain" from "Sounds of Music" by Rodgers and Hammerstein, accompanied by James McCarthy. Climaxing the program, chorus of boys of 20 voices, known as the Folk Singers, ent e r - tained with "Banua," "Don't Cry Katie," "El Matador" and "The Seine," with solo parts by Alan Korpi, Tom Tupper, Bruce Ous- tafson, Ralph Erikainen, and Edward Mascottl, accompanied by James Bersano. Adding to the charm was the personal appearance and groom- Ing of the entertainers. The program was arranged by the drama study group of the elub, headed by Mrs. R. W. John- ion and Mrs. W. R. McKie. Activities opened with a desert luncheon, served by a committee under the chairmanship of Mrs. Howard Brown and Mrs. Roy Malmberg.

In order to clarify confus i o n and misunderstanding of the following reported factors, the committee answered questions as follows: 1—Where do electors vote? This is a school district election; electors vote at polls in prec i n c t s designated by t h e boards of education in each of the school districts in the county. 2—Who may vote in the elec tion on May 10? All qualified registered voters in the school district may vote in the district in which they are registered. An elector need not be a property owner or taxpay Special School Election Monday BESSEMER — A special election will be held in the School District of Bessemer Mon day, under the direction of the Board of Education of the Intermedi ate School District of the County. The purpose of the election is to give voters the opportunity to vote on proposals relating to the proposed establishments and operation of a county-wide community college in Gogebic County. All qualified, reistered vot e r s may vote on the three proposals, in the school district in which they are registered. The voting polls will be open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Polls are located as follows. First Precinct—(first, second and four wards) will vote at the Washington School. Second Precinct (third ward) —voters will vote at the A. D. Johnston High School. Third Precinct (fifth ward) voters will vote at the Bessem e r Indianhead Hostel, formerly the Barber School. Three propositions will be submitted to the electors. Brief 1 y stated they are: Prosition I—Do you favor the establishment of a community college county district authorized to provide collegiate and non-collegiate level educat i o n including vocational-technical ed. ucation programs? Proposition 2—Shall the Board of Trustees be authorled to levy up to one and one-half mills on each dollar ($1.50 on each $1,000) of the assessed valuation of the county as equalized?

Ladies Guild Sets Meet Tuesday Night BESSEMER — The L a d i e s Guild of the St. Sebastian Catholic Church will meet Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the church hall. Plans will be made for participation in the various annual devotional services during May. Hostess will be Mrs. Joseph Michela and Mrs. Joseph Michelli, assisted by the Mesd a m e s James McCarthy, Arture and Emit Novascone, James O r o - vecz, Joseph Meyer, James Michelli, Ben and Ray Mllewski, Adam and Chester Modjews k i, Alfred Montesi, Luigi Mor lei, Raymond Mullen, Charles Musat- ti, Don Mussatti, Kenneth MacFarlane, C. T.

Bessemer Briefs The Board of Education will not meet Monday as scheduled due to a conflict with the special school district election scheduled for Monday. The board will meet In regular session Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the conference room of the high school. er in order to be eligible to vote on all three proposals. 3—It was reported that there were several critical comments claiming the sub-committee on elections endorsed some c a n- dldates and not others. This is a false statement. No candidates for trustee were endorsed by either the elect i o n sub-committee or the Act i o n- Informa tion Committee. The election committee was c o n- cerned only with encouraging representation from each of the school districts of the county. They expressed appreciation to the public spirited citizens who did file petitions for election to the board of trustees. 4—It was reported that several citiz e n s in discussions had asked, why waste time on working for a two year college, why not go all out for a four-year institution? Briefly, a four-year college Is not possible under existing statutes. Establishment of a four- year institution is controlled by specific action of the legislature. 5—Comments by several voters expressed the opinion t ha t they are in favor of the college, but not in favor of the additional tax levy. They referred to the jail proposals noting that "we voted for the jail but rejected the proposed additip n a 1 tax levy, and now we have a new jail" Why not do the same for the college? The circ umstances and sources of federal revenue are different, it was stated. First, the existing jail was condemned and the county board was ordered by the court to vacate the existing jail and pro- v 1 d e a new jail or transp o r t local prisoners to neighbor i n g approved jails. Although the state encourages the establishment of community colleges, there is no court mandate to do so. The federal funds available for the jail project are not available for the college. Aid for the jail was provided through the community facilities agency of the i Area Redevelopment Administration. The ARA is about to be terminated; it will be replaced by the M. D. T. A. (the Manpower Development Training Administration). There are federal funds available for certain purposes involving colleges, on a matching basis, thr o u g h the aid to education act. The plans proposed for financing the proposed college includes application for available fed e r al funds, which are not available unless matched by local funds. If the proposed additional tax levy fails to receive favorable majority vote, the college is a dead issue. The three proposals must be favored by electors in order that the college proj e c t materializes.

Senate Passes SB A Loan Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate passed by voice vote and sent to the House Friday emergency legislation to authorize an additional $50 million of Small Business Administration loans and other aid for victims of recent Midwest flood and tornado disasters. The aid would be earmarked for small business enterprises and home owners. Its continuing provisions would authorize similar aid for victims of future natural disasters. Sen. William Proxmire, D- Wis., its floor manager, explained that the bill would extend from 20 to 30 years the period for repayment of disaster loans provided by SBA. It also would authorize a five-year moratorium on the payment of principal and interest, a discretion of the SBA administrator, in cases of extreme hardship. Where a bank or other financial institution participates in a disaster loan on which a five- year moratorium becomes necessary, the bill provides for SBA to make the payments from its own funds to the other lender. SBA would be reimbursed by the disaster victim later. Kalamazoo Girl Dies When Struck by Train KALAMAZOO (AP) — Six- year-old Darlene Due, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie H.

Ashdown, 34, now an advertising salesman, had an urge to fly again. Police said he satisfied that urge Friday morning by stealing a World War II B25 bomber and making a tree-top flight along Waikiki Beach that had hotel residents quivering in their pajamas. Ashdown was charged with plane theft when he landed the craft at Honolulu's airport. Police said the bomber, which had been used for a Hollywood film, belonged to Ashdown's former employer. Police said Ashdown buzzed a beach hotel just clipping the tree tops, before roaring off 30 miles northwest of the city where the old bomber snapped 20 feet off a 110-foot radio station tower. The impact ripped a gash in the fuselage and smashed the glass bubble of the gun turret. Ashdown was cut in the cheek, police said. At the airport he gave officials a scare before setting the plane down safely. "He was headed right into the tower," said McCoy, FAA information officer. "We thought he was coming through the glass but then he pulled out and came in for a landing." Police detective Jacob Yoon quoted Ashdown: "I just had an urge to fly again." Palm branches and wreaths of parsley were awarded as prizes by the ancient Gree k s at the Isthmian games. Satellite Helps ' . "•Catch Suspect MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — Thf space-age police technique oj satellite television led to tha arrest of an urbane Canadian who has been hunted all ovei the world since the spectaculai burglary of a Montreal banli four years ago. The Canadian, Georges Lamay, 39, was surprised when 11 federal and local police stopped him just as he boarded his fancy, 43-foot yawl in the huge Bahia Mar Marina in Fort Lauderdale Thursday. "I very seldom make mistakes," he told Police Capt. Bob Smith. "How did you people catch me?" ToW that a boat repairman recognized a mug shot broadcast displayed by a Royal Canadian Mounted Police inspector on the inaugural Early Bird satellite television program, Lemay was incredulous. * * * "Is that your word of honor," he asked Smith. Assured it happened that way, Lemay said: "Well, isn't that something. It took a satellite to catch me." Police have had an interest in Lemay for 14 years since his beautiful blonde wife, the former Huguette Daoust, mysteriously disappeared while fishing from a bridge on the overseas highway in the Florida Keys. In 1961, a gang of thieves smashed through the concrete reinforced floor of a branch of tihe Bank of Nova Scotia and rifled 377 safe-deposit boxes. They escaped with $500,000 to $4 million although the exact amount was never determined because of depositors' reluctance to talk. The chief witness at the trial where four others were convicted of the theft said that Lemay was the mastermind. * * * The Early Bird TV broadcast showed the Mountie describing wanted men while FBI agents in Washington and Scotland Yard officials in London watched. The Fort Lauderdale man, who asked that his name not be used, went to police the next day. "I'm sure that's the guy I saw on TV last night," he said. He said Lemay had wanted him to do some work on his yacht. After a three-day stakeout and careful checking with people at the marina, police closed in. Lemay was brought to Miami for a U.S. commissioner's hearing. Police Capt. Smith said authorities decided to charge him with illegal entry because, if found guilty, he could be carried back to the Canadian border immediately without having to go through extradition.
