FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1970, PAGE 4 The Fourth Branch By G. 0. Paeth Like a $2-an-hour gas station attendant who spends his even- Ings molding steel into a quick car for the Sunday afternoon dragstrlp, Chicago's Mayor Daley tuned up his Juggernaut of a Demorcratlc machine last Wednesday for the big race Nov. 3. The garage looked just like the Auditorium Theater. But the Mayor, master mechanic that he Is, doesn't win the big ones alone. He has a pit crew of aldermen, commltteemen, precinct captains and patronage workers standing by. And about 3,500 of the little guys, the ones that might chase after parts or a beer for the creator of a trlple-a-dragster, were on hand to hear the master plan. Bui don't think for one minute that this was an elite crew; this was a Chicago team with a few fragile suburbanites, trained to pull every eligible voter to the polls In their own bailiwicks of power. Like the drag racer who pays an entry fee for a shot at a gold-plated cup, they were ready to deliver the vote for the Mayor's candidates and the rewards would come later. There were sharkskin suited ItaJIans, Poles with the maehln- est's oil under their nails and Wlnnetkans with graying sideburns and horn-rimmed glasses that lent them their sought after professorial airs. And there were dark-eyed Irishmen, ruddy- faced after a day out-doors with city maintenance crews, semi- transient white Southerners wearing string ties and cowboy boots, and representatives of scores of other, less distinguishable segments of the population. And there were blacks. Hundreds and hundreds of Blacks. Some affluent, others newly so with flashy sport coats and $50 shoes. Many, In their bushy "naturals" appeared a bit embarrassed to be with the "man" for even one evening. Still others appeared to be a short step from relief roles. Each ward paraded through the Auditorium's main double doors with it's own band blasting an Indistinguishable march. The adrenalin was flowing and a Republican would have been devoured. And, for a few hours, ¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥ Singltones Enter Quartet Competition Providence-bound are the four members of the Village Vocal Chords known as the SINGLTONES, who will represent their chapter in International Quartet Competition on October 17 in "Little Rhody." Traveling with them is their director-coach, Ruth Cells. Members of the quartette are the Misses JoAnne DuBois and Betty Somogyl of Forest Park and the Misses Holly Hogrefe and Cynthia Jefferson of Westmont. The SINGLTONES were organized in April this year as a "pickup quartette" to sing one song on the VVC's annual show. Liking the sound they made together and the challenge of quartette singing, they decided to continue rehearsals and enter the International Competition of Harmony, Inc. this month. It will be the first competition for JoAnne and Cynthia. Betty and Holly were members of the 1964 championship "SCALE BLAZERS.' 1 Contestants are judged In five different categories by a panel of Certified Judges from S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A., Inc. Categories include Harmony Accuracy, Blend, Balance and Expression, Arrangement and Stage Presence, which Includes costuming. Each judge assesses each contestant Independently and results are not known until all scores are added. The winners are called the "Harmony Queens" and their official reign extends for a full year until the next queens are crowned. However, in barbershop harmony circles, "once a champion, always a champion" and the members of the winning quartette retain their title and may never again compete as a foursome, under the same name. Miss Somogyl will also attend Delegates' Meetings as the President of the Village Vocal Chords and Area Representatives' meetings for Area 4, Harmony, Inc. at the convention. The wc-contingent will travel to Providence on a special charter flight with many other Harmony, Inc. members from the Midwest, Including several other competing quartettes. while the Mayor and other Democratic candidates berated the opposition, vast differences between the little guys were forgotten. They had assembled to kick-off the campaign on a local level where the votes are. They were bound through the party to elect Stevenson, Elrod and Dunne and anyone else who wore a Democratic label. The issues meant nothing. Commissioned Ensign Navy Wave Ensign Gerda K, Borchert, Nurse Corps, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter H. Borchert of 1222 Circle Ave., was commissioned an Ensign upon graduation from the Naval Schools Command Officer Indoctrination Course for Nurses and Medical Service Corps at Newport, R.L >.»¥»»¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥ FIRE PREVENTION WEEK is October 4th thru 10th Be careful!
