THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland t, UN PaitA-t TJ Scholars Top Ten In State Test Road Scholars from TJ finish* ed in the top ten at the Plymouth Trouble Shooting Contest held at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore on Saturday, May 23, but failed to win one of the contest's top three positions. Marion U. Lawson, Auto Mechanics instructor at TJ, stated he was very proud of his team, Paul Heffner and RobertRameberger, tot placing as high as they did. The contest causes excitement and a very heavy tension in the boys besides requiring that they fight a time clock. This is the first year since entering the contest that TJ had a team make it to the finish line. The boys found all the malfunctions and corrected them but took just a little too long. They were off about three degrees on their meter readings and the reading was required to be absolutely perfect. Many teams were still hard at work with cars unable to run when the Frederick team left for home. The written test which counts for 30 percent of the grade is taken as a team. Each boy answered 50 questions and one could raise the score or drag it down. Lawson said it was gratifying to learn that teams at Baltimore made the highest scores so far on the written test given in the eastern division. This in itself should make the vocational program proud of the progress being made in the state of Maryland. The actual finding and correcting of malfunctions counted for 70 percent. Teams coming to compete covered the District of Columbia, Maryland, and for the first time this year, Delaware. The students and the instructor would publicly like to thank Roney Motors for their past support. Hopefully next year the Frederick team can bring home one of the big ones because if Roney Motors will sponsor them they will be in there trying again.
