Teen-Age Talent Presents Program
Racine teen-agers presented an hour and a half of variety entertainment for a large crowd in Memorial Hall Sunday evening in the amateur hour sponsored by John M. Gross Post of Catholic War Veterans.
First prize, a hundred dollar defense bond, went to Barbara McNair, senior at Washington Park High School, who sang “September Song.”
Second prize was awarded to Bob Ainsworth, student of William Horlick High School, for his accordion selection, “Dance of the Comedians.” Third and fourth prizes went to Johnny Bernez of Mitchell who played “A-Ba-Ba-Re-Ba” as an accordion solo, and to an adagio team, Wayne Gerou of St. Catherine’s and Patty Fergus, student at Mygatt’s School.
Winners were determined by a point system, with Miss Jean Binks, Les Beck and Mayor John Gothner acting as judges. W. C. (Tex) Reynolds served as master of ceremonies and at the close of the program presented the prizes to the winners.
