IHS Class Of 1961 Adventures
Four members of the Ithaca High School Choir which had travelled to Washington for the National Music Educator's Conference to sing the Cherubini Mass in January 1961, participated in a television panel show, "Youth Wants to Know," filmed on January 12, 1961, consisting of an interview of Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon. Shown here are (from left) pupils Mary Lou Hoffman, Susan Blair, Senator Morse, Peter Storandt, and Thomas Rawski. The TV show was apparently not broadcast in Ithaca (although the Ithaca Journal indicated WICB-TV was going to try to get a copy to show); it appeared nationally on January 15.
