Sun, <Xt»fe»r A 1*3 AHS One Chorale Selected of IO Best in U.S. The Alice High School choir has been invited to perform in the Festival of the Three Cities in Vienna. Austria, next June 29 to July 13 The invitation was extended to the choir following the choir’s selection as one of the ten best high school choirs by the Search Committee of the National Educational Scholarship Foundation L'nfortunately. the estimated cost per student—$790—has been determined by Alice school officals as too high for participation by the choir in the international festival. Mrs Martha Luigi, choir director, received notice of the choir's selection as one of the nation s outstanding high school choral groups Tuesday in a telephone call from Dr. Lara Haggard of the University of North Carolina. He said selection was based upon a tape submitted to the search committee by the school The Alice High School choir is one of four from Texas selected to attend the Vienna festival. Individuals participating in the program would be eligible for a number of scholarships available to outstanding performers.

Wallace finally grabbed the plaque on this right and slapped it down on the table “We’ll either win it big or really go down,” he said Bass, sitting on Wallace’s left, leaned back in his chair one more time. He knew exactly what he was going to do, but he decided to savor the moment for as long as the suspense would allow His eyes twinkled and a small smile crossed his face. “The double five,” he said, and he banged his domino on the table with a vengeance, picked up a piece of chalk and scraped three X's on the table and then drew a line through the column of X’s he and his Call No. 482 Charter No  JAWS.........................

Then there’s M G. (Mullie) Garrett, the GOF chairman of Archer County who lives over in Windthorst. 12 miles east. Besides Bass and Garrett, there are six others who voted in the last Republican primary in Archer County. Wallace considers Joe Stults, the editor of the Archer County News, a Republican Stults. like the majority of people here, says he is a Democrat and that he only voted Republican once in his life. “That was in my first election, I voted for Eisenhower in 1952.” GOF Party Man But to Wallace and some of the others in The Club, Stults is a Republican. Stults is not to be trusted because I), he is young, only in his mid 40s; 2) he is a newcomer; having lived in Archer City only ll years; and 3) he has openly advocated voting for President Nixon and has urged everyone else to do so in the editorial column of his newspaper Archer City and Archer County have many distinctions. Since March, 1912, when the first well came in 13 miles southeast of the county courthouse, Archer County has been one of the state’s most productive oil regions. When Jesse James, his brother Frank and their gang made one of their many forays from old Missouri, they would hide from the law at the old Allen H. Palmer house, just east of town. Author Larry McMurtry was born and raised in Archer City and the movie version of one of his books, “The Last Picture Show,” was filmed here The Archer County has never once voted Republican. There is no reason to believe Archer County won’t go Democratic again this year except one — Sen. George S. McGovern, the Democratic nominee for president. He is not liked in Archer City. He is a liberal and the Democrats here are conservative — very conservative. Folks here don’t like President Nixon much either but only because he is a Republican. They used to like John Connelly, but not any more. “He’s a traitor.” Wallace spits out the words as he slams down another domino. The others nod their head and agree and don’t understand why anyone — especially a well-known popular, conservative Democrat from Texas — would associate with Republicans If Nixon was a Democrat, it would not be any contest in Archer County. The President would win by a landslide. But he’s not, so it’s going to be close. Everyone agrees the county could go Republican for the first time in its history — everyone but Democratic County Chairman Edward H. Trigg Jr. — but no one is making any bets. If McGovern does carry Archer County, it will be because the residents voted Democratic by force of habit. And around here, it’s a mightly strong habit. Does All Writing Stults is one of the people who will admit Nixon could be the first Republican to carry Archer County. Stults, whose office sits one block west of the town square, spends his day writing all the copy for his weekly newspaper. He finishes working up the statistics of the last Archer City High School football team — the Wildcats won the Class A state title in 1964 but have lost more than they’ve won this year — and says he’s definitely voting for Nixon “This county is like Ivory soap — ninety-nine and nine-tenths per cent pure Democrat.' Stults said. “But folks here are worried about the economy and they don't think McGovern and all of his giveaway programs are gonna help much. These people here, they work for a living. Ain’t no one around here on welfare and they don’t like giveaways. They just don’t like McGovern here. They don't like the way he feels about abortion for instance. And the folks in the eastern part of the county, they dom't like the way he feels about, you know, what’s that about them deserters?” “Amnesty,” someone yelled from the back shop “Yeah, amnesty. They don’t like that here either.' Stults said Doubts GDP Win Triggs’ insurance company and the Archer County Abstract Office, which he also runs, are housed in the same office next to the Golden Rooster Restaurant across from the courthouse. He said he “doubts very seriously” the county will go Republican. “The Republicans will have a hard time carrying this county,” the Democratic chairman said. “George McGovern, I admit isn’t liked very much. And, hell, if I went out to these folks around here and asked them to vote for McGovern, they’d laugh in my face “President Nixon” — here Trigg pauses for almost five seconds He sucks in his breath, shrugs his shoulders “Well, I don’t hear much criticism. “But folks here are good Democrats,” Trigg said “The big issue is national defense.” he said, almost pronouncing each letter in national defense._ is the latest in a string of honors accumulated by the Alice High School choir during the last year Included in these honors are the sweepstakes award at the University Interscholastic League contest at Del Mar; the outstanding madrigal award at the Madrigal Festival in San Antonio in April, and the highest number of all district students this year.
