Top Teens In Talent Test

THE GIRL at the piano is 13-year-old Ellen Amos, first place winner in the 13th Annual Teen Talent Contest sponsored by the Montgomery County Recreation Department and the Kensington-Wheaton Jaycees. Ellen not only plays and sings, she is a talented composer. In fact, she wrote the song that she performed. Second place winner at last Saturday's competition was Barbara Hackett, shown at right putting body and soul into her oral reading from "The Member of the Wedding." Barbara played both 13-year-old Frankie and the family cook Berniece. Ellen and Barbara won $100 and $50 bonds respectively.
