Arcata High Finishes -Top Ten' U.N. Category Moonlight Oasis 'ueen Is Crowned ARCATA - For the second consecutive year Arcata High finished in the top ten category at (he Model United Nations conference held in Berkeley on February 13, 14, and 15. ·The six students, Dcbby Dillon, Maureen Finigan, Frances Dickerson, Gregg Moore, Midge Pelham, and Zaeh Zwerdling, represented the Communist country of Albania. Jodie Nickels was unable to attend. Each year, at the end of the conference, ton teams are selected- as the ones who best represented their assigned countries. Approximately 135 schools participated in this event. It is run by the students at the I'o- iilical Science Department of Berkeley, and they pick t h e countries each school is to represent and the five committees to be included. Students from the various high schools are to look up information on their countries, and at the conference try to act as the actual country" would. Each school participates in these live committees and the Security Council, as well as the General Assembly. They pass resolutions and amendments that deal with world problems that are relevant in the real UN. Arcata High's team, since they represented Albania, had only one ally, that being Red China. One of Arcata's projects was to get a resolution passed COMMUNIST REPRESENTATIVES from Albanio ore (l-r) Gregg Moore, Maureen Finigan, Debby Dillon, Midge Pelham, and Zach Zwerdling. Not pictured are Francis Dickcrson and Jodie Ntckols. to admit Red China to the I'M. This attempt was unsuccessful, but the country of Albania was praised by the top officials for Iheir valiant efforts. Robert Berko\vit2. the din advisor, had this to say abou! the event: "This mock United Natioas is a great learning experience for all of the team members." Since there, will be three spots open on next year's team, Berkowitz is urging students to try out. "Arcata High now has a good chance to win top countrv three years in a row." stated the cap- lain of the team, Zach Zwerdling. Arcata will have the first choice as far as picking their country, and they hope to try for tlie countrv of Israel. "I think that tins year was really fun. especially when we were able to speak in front of committees of the General Assembly. We had to learn to talk like an Albanian." said Debhy Dillon. F r a n c e s Dickcrson added. "It's really a lol of f u n . and a great chance to meet lots of people."
