BY ROBERT STULBERG

Reaffirming its previous pro-
posals, the Detroit Board of Edu-
cation has unanimously ruled to
expand the science and arts pro-
gram to four closed school districts.
Cass science and arts will enroll
only those students from the sou-
thern section of the city, beginning,
with the February semester. Quali-
fied students from the Mumfard
area will not be eligible for en-
rollment in the Cass "S&A" pro-
gram.
In the course of a year, the com-
munity will be able to judge the
success of this • program. In the
meantime, students wishing to en-
roll in any of the other 28 curricula
offered at Cass can do so, regard-
less of geographic districting.
Many science and arts courses
will be available to qualified stu-
dents in the other curricula. A
review committee will be set up
to consider requests.
The Cass chapter of the National
Honor Society inducted among
others, in special ceremonies:
Dwight Alpern, Richard Beck-
er, David Budson, Gary Cabot,
James Feld, Helene Freedman,
Caryn Fried, Howard Goldman,
Arlene Gorelick, Anita Handle-
man, Barbara Heller, Judy Ren-
ner, David Letvin, Howard Lin-
den, Eric Oppenheim, Robert
Rosen, Eliott Seigal, Charles So-
berman, Robert Stulb•rg, Sharon
Teitlebaum and Jacob Wein-
traub.
Playing before a capacity crowd
of the nation's foremost band di-
rectors, the Symphony Band re-
ceived an unprecedented 20-minute
standing ovation at the conclusion
of last week's Chicago perform-
ance.
In its first concert appearance
of the school year, the Cass Con-
cert Choir, under the direction of
Italo Taranta, will perform the
Schubert and Poulenc Masses on
Jan. 14.
The faculty and students will
join to present "J. B.," a modern
adaptation by Archibald MacLeish
of the biblical text, Job.
The role of J. B., a tormented
man in search of the Lord, will be
played by Jonas Segal. Edward
Konry, assistant principal, will co-
star as the Lord.
Qualifying on the preliminary
exam, 32 students have reached
the finals of the Michigan Math
Competition. Among the finalists
are:
Jeffrey Aisen, Helene Freedman,
Kenneth Gilbert, Howard Goldman,
David Grinstein, Andrew Hoffman,
and Irving Rosenstein.
Winning 19 of its first 22 de-
bates, the varsity debate team has
clinched first place in the Central
division of the Metropolitan
League, where they are undefeated
in 10 straight debates.

Tell not all you know nor judge
of all you see if you should live
