The semi- finalists are Ronda Henderson, Joel Horton, Kari Yansky and Lant Pritchett. Seven seniors have been given letters of commendation. They are Sarah Barsness, James Corn- well, Brian Dale, Steve Erick- -son, Kyla Keeney, Doug Stokes, and Debbie Whipple. OUT OF 1,050,000 juniors who took the 1975 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/Nation- al Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) these stu- dents are among the 15,000 who have been made semi-finalists and the 35,000 commended stu- dents nation-wide according to Mr. Bennett, senior counselor. The test was taken last year in mid October. It is a difficult test that is divided into two sections -- verbal and math. The test takes about three hours to com- plete. About 103 students from Borab-took the test last year. THE TEST not only gives a preliminary idea of how the stu- dent will do on the SAT, but it also provides a good selfcheck to obtain a realistic program report. Semi-finalists might also be elig- ible for a scholarship, said Mr. Bennett. "With society being basically competitive, I feel it is necessary that our students compare and compete aggressively nation- ally, +' said Mr. Bennett. "The test is not designed for the class intellect. In 1974 one of the finalists maintained a C average indicating that ability quite often surpasses class performance," he added. earn ,d is [lre II. ,rts ttas )wn lost nek son ista gh oel dey on Hill ner on rell ogt ;on ',en ' ts- ne :la- irs, lel )ek td Io iek lh, is, in, Seven Borah students won awards in five events in the Northwest Media Conference in Sun Valley, Oct. 3-5.

"! met a lot of great people,'" said John Clapp. "Everyone had a super time," added Julie Johnson, "'but the conference itself was more poor- ly organized than it has been in the past, and rather useless for the average high school journalist compared to other state and na- tional conferences.'"
