Broadway Show Rehearses The Broadway Show. The Music Man, ' has been chosen as this years musical and will be performed on April 30. Mav 1. 2. and May 6, 7, and 8. The play was selected because of its bicentennial theme. The background for "The Music Man" is the small Iowa town of River City on the 4lh of July, 1912. The play concerns the con-artistry of a salesman of band instruments and uniforms. Professor Harold HUl. Hill had been chased out of the rural towns of Illinois and decided to try Iowa territory. On arrival Hill industriously begins engaging prospective band members in spite of the by now suspicious local music teacher. Marion Paroo. She soon discovers that he s a phony but keeps the knowledge to herself because of her growing romantic interest in Hill. All ends happily when the "think system band" manages to stumble through their music. Over 200 kids tried out for "The Music Man" and were chosen on the basis of their audition and their availability for rehearsal. Those who captured the leads are Kevin Kielas and David Millhiser as Harold Hill. Mike Flannery as Mati Shinn, and Gavle Corthinos

and Kathy Kielas as Marion Paroo. The rehearsal schedule is every night until 7:00. The week before the play opens, dress rehearsal will begin with scene changes, dancing, and scenery. Mr. Lloyd Spear. Musical Director and Producer, commented, "When we had the first rehearsal I think it was the best we've ever had. It was a difficult adjustment to pull everything together." Other Directors include Show Director. Irwin Bell; Technical Director. Vincent Pinelli, Choreographer: Barbara Bobrich: and Mrs. Baumgartner as Wardrobe Director. Most cast and crew members like the show. Donna Rusch. "77, commented. "Ifs a good play, well-known and with a lot of music. I don t think it makes much difference that this is the second time we've done "Music Man' . It was a pretty long time ago and the department's changed a lot since then. " Lisa Kelly, '76, thought otherwise. "They should have done something they had'nt already done. The biggest reason for getting involved in the musical was because of the fun. Renate Kollin. '77. stated. "It's a lot of

hard work but when you do the performance well it's worth the effort. " One chorus member, Grace Anderson, '76, stated, "I enjoy singing very much and the show is definitely worth all the work. " Not only is the show larger than the regular department productions but it also is a musical. One crew member commented that people in the musical weren't as close as in the Arena and prozenium plays but there was more of a feeling that everybody was pulling the show together to make it work. -Another c r e w member recognized the difference when she said. "The singing is excellent and the most outstanding part of the show, though I think sometimes the acting isn't as good as it could be. " On the Directors of the play one cast member commented, "The Directors are excellent but sometimes I think they could cooperate with each other better." Another commented, "I think the Directors show a lot of cooperation and they do a good job of pulling the show together." One crew member stated, "The number of directors we have sometimes adds to the general confusion."

Sex Discrimination Law Affects Maine High Schools Title IX, the bill which prohibits any sex discrimination in federally-assisted educational programs, specifically physical education, has been creating nation-wide controversey since its passage by the Federal government in 1972. Dr Michael Myers, .\ssistant Superintendent-Instructor of Maine schools has been supervising the acceptance of Title IX in the four Maine high schools since last fall. Title IX will eventually affect all students since it deals not only with the interscholastic sports programs but also the mandator." PE classes. By the July 1978'deadline Maine South and the other Maine schools are expected to be m compliance with the provision that "no person in the L'.S. shall on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in. be denied the benefits of. or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program receiving

financial assistance from the U.S. government. The ramifications of this new law are staggering. Both the Mens and Women's PE Departments are expected to share all their facilities equally and provide the students with comparable programs Considering the differences in emphasis between the two departments this could be difficult, according to Ms. Katherine Pierce. Chairman of the Women's PE Department. These two departments have such different philosophies. The men emphasize physical fitness, hard muscle sports and calisthenics while the girls dept. emphasizes lifetime sports such as tennis and archery. We'll have to meet each other halfway in order to comply with the Title IX ruling, "" states Miss Pierce. I feel that the federal government was right in adopting this stand on the interscholastic

"However the regular PE program should be left alone." Mr. Bernie Brady. Chairman of the Men's PE Department, agreed, commenting, "i just can't see scraping two equally good PE programs just because the P'ederal government says we have to be co-ed." Title IX has specifically named six exceptions to the ruling. "Body sports " such as wrestling, ice hockey, football, basketball, boxing and rugby may be taught co-educationally for the instruction part but not for the practice part. Both Brady

and Pierce feel these exceptions should be extended to include "collision sports"" like softball and baseball, volleyball, field hockey and soccer. The two department heads feel that if men and women athletes are allowed to tr>' out for each other "s teams then such sports as basketball and wrestling will become male-dominated. Brady also stated that "the competition in regular gym classes could he disasterous if they're changed to co-ed."

MS Social Science Dept. Offers three Excursions The Social Science Department headed by Mr. Kohler. Dept. Chairman, has planned three events for South students this spring and summer. They are the Galena trip, the Washington Workshop and the "Faces in History " contest. The bus for the Galena trip open to all Juniors will leave South at 7 a.m. and arrive at Galena at 1 p.m. Students attending will tour Ulysses S. Grant's home, visit historic downtown Galena and ride the inclined railroad. The Washington Workshop will give a few selected Maine South students an opportunity to see the United States government in action. 300 other high school students from all over the U.S. will also attend the seminars dealing with basic government operations and also to meet senators, representatives and judges and possibly the President. The

Workshop is scheduled for the middle of June. On Monday, .April 19, the "Faces in History" contest began. The contest consists of 300 pictures of famous people in American history and is displayed in the glass case in the Awirig. There are presidents, explorers, and movie stars. "Anyone who contributed something to U.S. history could be included," stated Mr. Kohler. To enter just obtain an entry blank from the Social Science Office in A-217.

some fun and relaxation, too? .Maybe a foreign language club is the answer. German Club, the largest foreign language club at Maine South, boasts 57 members. Movies, records, and German games are only a part of the meetings, which are held twice a month, with Frau Schultz as sponsor. The Spanish Club, under the sponsorship of Senora Blackstad. has also been busy with a candy sale and bake sale. In the past a Christmas party and picnic were held, and recently the members attended the La Marguerita restaurant for a real Spanish meal. This year French Club wasn't as active as in the past. During other years students held cheese parties and pastry tasting sessions and also went to French restaurants. For the past 6 weeks the Latin Club has been planning their presentation for the Spring Language Awards Night which will honor all foreign language students who have excelled in their respective languages. Latin Club meetings are held every 2 weeks Interest in all language clubs is hoped to increase next year so that more exciting events can be planned.

"The speeches are read over to protect the candidates." said Mr. Robert Simonsin. assistant principal. "They are checked so that nothing is said to offend or hurt anyone."

John Kosik '76, student council organizations chairman, agreed with Mr. Simonsin and added that "The speeches were not read over to protect the administration."

Future Plans Projected by Students

Letter to the Magazine Editors

Editorial

Read This, but will it Matter? by Margaret Kreppel Ah, tis Spring, and young minds (and a few old) think more of extracurricular activities. Such utterances as "Who cares? ", and 'As if it really matters to me, " float through Maine Souths halls. But, this attitude isn't too surprising. After seven and a half months or so of hard labor (for most, of course), school begins to drag on. Ambitiously working for a good grade (And students do^work ambitiously, don't they'') doesn't have the same appeal as it did in the fall and winter. Reminders by teachers that "You still have part of fourth quarter to go, so shape up," do not help. Yet, both sides seem to enter Maine South in the morning with, "This day better go quickly, " or sigh. "Oh God, here we go again. ' But this attitude has a serious side. People appear too wrapped up in themselves to care about anyone else. Friends and acquaintances can grind on about experiences that once

were interesting, yet thoughts of "So why are you telling me this"?"" pop into individual's heads. Only one person matters and that person is oneself. Classes seem bland and irrelevant to the world outside. Taking a course on English literature or trigonometry will really help when in a car accident or buying a house. frying to erase this feeling is not easy. Although such an attitude is not so strong in some people, apathy is present. Maybe, students and members of the faculty take this school too much for granted. Instead of appreciating the quality education offered (although at times this seems hard to do), and the friends made, many make off-hand remarks about Souths program and the people who attend and work here. So, in all. school may be dragging on and the days until school closes appearing never to get down to the last ten. However, this could be September and a whole year of fun just waiting ahead. But then again, "Who c a r e s ? "

come a better musician. ' "I want to be an illustrator for children's books, staled Lisa Talamantez 77 Ed .McNella 77. replied, "Go to college." Other students wished to travel after high school. Laurie Demos 77, remarked. "I'd like to travel for a year ' "During the summer, I'd like to get about ten friends and go to Florida or Colorado.' commented Peter Chambers "76. Some students want to be involved in working with others. "I hope to be a pre-school teacher. " said Nancy Antosh 77. ' "Oh yes, and a wife, too." Tom Lukashaw 76. responded, • I hope to go to college and then . get into some kind of Christian work." "I want to be a youth camp leader or do some kind of outdoor work, mentioned Steve Towne '76. Other people mentioned their plans for the future, but refused to have them publicized. And some students did not take the question seriously One anonymous responded. Id like to go down in history by finding the miracle cure for constipation." .Another anonymous stated, "I want to be a bum or a flagpole sitter. I have not quite decided between the two." But aside from the above comments, planning about the future should be forming. All loo soon tomorrow will be todav.

Presidential Candidates: A Diversified Issue at South

According to her English I class, this teacher just couldn't seem to get bunnies out of her system.

'All the President's Men' Shows Watergate Scandal by MaryO'Keefe All the President's Men is a realistic movie about the Watergate break-in and the two reporters who first investigated the scandal. It is based on the book by Bob Woodword and Carl Bernstein. The film stars Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman. Jason Robards, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam, and Hal Holbrook as Deep Throat, an informant. The plot details Bob Woodword and Carl Bersteins efforts as they try to find the truth behind the burglary. The film reveals all the tedious telephoning and legwork necessary while checking up on each source. The movie relates how the government employees were pressured to say nothing to the press as part of the cover up. The fears of the careful editors in printing these risky stories are also shown. Perhaps most apparent in All the President's Men is the realistic portrayal of the journalists. The film does not overglamorize their jobs. In addition, the movie clearly shows how the investigation slowly progressed from some small-time burglars to the office of the President, and eventually the cover-up. The acting all throughout the movie is excellent, especially Jason Robards as the skeptical editor-in-chief. There is not much action, as most of the film deals with dialogue concerning the facts of the investigation. Unfortunately, the viewer can get lost in ail the facts, figures and dates. Perhaps having a better knowledge of Watergate or having read the book, might help him. , A message on the significance of this scandal is still relevant. .Mthough while viewing the film, one recognizes names, also one realizes how little he really knows about this scandal.

by David Barklow Unfortunately for Gerald Ford. Richard Nixon resigned almost two years before the next Presidential election. This may appear to be a good thing for Ford at first, since it gave him a chance to be the President longer. However, the almost universal appeal which Ford enjoyed back in those balmy days of 1974 has had a chance to die down considerably. This is largely due to the fact that — like it or not — Ford has had to make a few decisions while waiting around for the 76 election, and as everybody knows, as soon as a president does something, somebody else doesn't like it. So now It's 1976 and a lot of people are out to get Jerry's job because they say they can do a better job. The 'They " refers to Ronald Reagan (Ford's only opponent for the Republican nomination!: Former Governor of Georgia.

Evelyn Carlburg,'78 picks Ford because "he's done a lot for the country, " while Patti Buchanan, '78 points out that Reagan doesn't know too much about foreign policy. Steve Walk, '78 disagrees and considers Reagan "the least of all evils. " and Brett Kush, '78 also supports the ex-movie star because I always haled Ford." Linda Wood, '78 hasn't read enough about each candidate to form an opinion — an indecision which shared by many South students. It is interesting to note that a few of Souths distinguished faculty were unanimous in their support of absolutely no one. For all the talk of the radical young generation, Maine South has shown itself to be surprisingly conservative in its support of Ford. Nobody even mentioned dark-horse Hubert Humphrey, and Henry Jackson might as well be Simon Plolkowski for all the recognition he enjoys at South.

Job Hunting Got You Down?

by Marie Meyer and Doug Savage It's summer job time and il you are like most students looking for vacation employment, you have probably noticed that employers are not knocking your door down in an effort to hire you. The fact is that if a job opportunity is knocking at your door, you're probably in the wrong house. However, given the wide array of jobs available, motivated students can usually find a temporary position with some effort. First of all, it is important that the job hunter not be afraid to hit the road and knock on some doors in search of employment. It is important to get out early and beat returning college students to job openings. Remember that in a competitive job market graduates will seen' and pretends to be spoken usually get first preference over to someone, anyone who has younger high school students. written letters, prayed, or Be sure to let people know that exulted can feel it and use it."' you are looking for a job.

many jobs go unadvertised, it is a good idea to consult various people and keep your ears open for advise from friends and relatives. In presenting yourself to any potential employer, it is important that the job seeker appear his best. Try to 11 act intelligent and knowledgeable: 2i remember manners and politeness ; 3I look presentable. Another consideration when looking for employment is to find a position that will suit vour interests and abilities. There is nothing worse than spending the summer doing work that is mono tonous and uninteresting. If at all possible, find a job that you can return to either next summer or during school breaks. Unless you're quite lucky, however, you may have to take only what you can get. What is important is to start looking for possibilities now instead of waiting for some golden opportunity.

Brett Hartmann was the victim of the barrage as he gave up si.\ runs, five unearned, seven hits, and hit a batter during his stay of two innings In the third, the Hawks closed the gap to one run behind a two-run double by Mark Galler, Unfortunately, this was the last time the Hawks were to cross home plate and Elk Grove added a run in the sixUi inning to seal

the win. One bright spot was the pitching of Steve Malin who pitched four innings and allowed only one run and two hits. Against Waukegan East, one error allowed two runs to score and that was the difference as the Hawks lost 3-1. Also lost was Tom .McGlade. who suffered a shoulder separation in the game. The Hawks then ripped Waukegan West for ten hits and eleven runs. Nine different Hawks got hits in the rout. After the end the exhibition season. Coach V'erber explained his views on exhibition games, "I like to win but Id rather lose an exhibition game than a regular season game, I also get a chance to play many different players. I averaged fifteen players per game," In their first conference game, the Hawks pounded out 11 hits and scored nine runs to enable Gaydon Brandt to pick up the win, .Against Glenbrook North, the Hawks weren't as successful. Glen Hendrie was hit for six

runs and eight hits during his two inning stay Gaydon Brandt relieved him but could not stop the Spartans as he allowed four runs on one hit and six walks during the two innings he pitched, Ralph Russel pitched the final inning and though he hadn't pitched before, he allowed only one run. The game was called on darkness after the fifth inning, which was unfortunate since the Hawks were finally hitting the Spartan pitchers and had scored three runs in the fifth. Against Maine East, a controversal play in the third

ended a Hawk rally. With bases loaded. Rich Smith hit a fly ball that was dropped by an outfielder Since the umpire ruled that he caught the ball, the result was a double play and the end of a potentially high-scoring inning. Aided by this, the Demons came back to score one run in the third and four in the fourth to win. Gaydon Brandt was the losing pitcher in the game. •".Against Glenbrook South, we put everything together; pitching, defense, and hitting. At Glenbrook North, we got the hitting and defense, but not the pitching." stated Coach Verber.
