Algona Girls Wins State Speaking Contest, Indiana KARYN CHARLES By Vicki Aldred (A dormttory neighbor) An Algona college student has ranked first in the recent Indiana State Peace Conference Extemporaneous Speaking Contest. Karyn Charles, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Charles, Box 273, Algona, is a sophomore at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana. Karyn, who -is Just 16, also ranked sixth in the National Peace Conference Extemporaneous Speaking Contest after placing first in the Indiana contest. Speeches for the contest were taped during the Indiana contest at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. Karyn's winning speech was sent to the national contest where tapes of all the competing 50 states' winning speeches were judged at Washington, D. C. Karyn first competed at Butler University for the Indiana title last year, but was not notified until recently that she had placed sixth in the national competition. Karyn says, "I didn't think I would place any further in national competition because in the state competition I had been in a women's division and in the national I went into the open class with both man and women, so I was very surprised and happy when my debate coach received a letter notifying m? of my sixth place ranking in national open competition." Extemporaneous speaking Is not the only Interest of the 18- year-old Ball State University student, Karyn was on the debate team at Algona High School, where she started speech work as a freshmin and sophomore. As a Junior and senior she competed in debates. "My high school debate background has been of invaluable help to me at Ball State," says Karyn. Karyn Is a member of the varsity debate squad at BUI State. In 1966, Karyn and her partner had a 76 per cent record of wins. About debate Karyn has smilingly said, "Except for a desire to have verbal combat with someone, I can't think of any other reason for a person to debate." Debating and extemporaneous speaking, however, are Just part of her full university program at BUI State. Karyn, who attends Ball State because her parents are enthusiastic former Ball State students, spends 15 hours a week as wardrobe m'stress for the Ball State Theatre. These hours are spent working with the actors, directors and stage crews during productions as well as during the regular school day.

After sketches are approved by the Ball State Theatre adviser, she begins making the costumss. Students in stage craft classes assist her with soms costume making.
