"Even though I've been direct- ing for 37 years, I didn't know if I'd be accepted, because I haven't had a lot of chances to ring," Lewis said. "This is a chal- lenge for me. Despite having played since 1986, Hersey said she is still re- ally nervous. "I was really excited because I wasn't really sure how hard it would be to get in," she said. "But I'm really nervous, because the music we are going to play is really hard, and I just don't want to let anybody down." She has been a musician an her life, playing piano and par- ticipating in her school bands, but she said, unlike a piece where you play all the notes on your page, hand-bells is quite an adjustment. "You have two bells in your hand and you start with just two notes, but you really have to count and come in at just the right time," she said. From the first time she played, she said, she was hooked. When the chance to perform at Distinctly Bronze came so close to home, she said she couldn't pass it up. The conference is usually held on the East Coast or in the Midwest. "I always wonder if I'm going to do this for another year," Lewis said. "But you go to an event like this and it's absolutely IF YOU GO Distinctly Bronze West concert 4 p.m. Feb. 15 Kitsap Conference Center 100 Washington Ave., Bmmerton Admission is $5.

The 114 ringers will ring more than 350 bells during their 14- song performance. "All this music is probably harder than anything else I've ever played," Lewis said. "It is hard to play that many songs and remember all those songs, but it is even harder to get the muscle memory of playing them into the brain." Since her acceptance, she's been practicing individually. More recently, she's been prac- ticing with another group of ringers for two and a half hours on Saturdays, she said. In the end, the experience will be about challenging themselves and having fun. "It should be really cool and hopefully we're not too out of our class," Hersey said. "We're going to try, we're going to have fun and that is the main thing. Reach Reporter Chantelle Lusebrink at 392-6434, ext. 241, or clusebrink@iss- press.com.

"One thing that emerged is that women may have been hugely effective in terms of passing on the mes- sage." Project draws cdtlcism The UW team was pleased with the results, he said, but there was adverse reaction in lo- cal newspapers when it was dis- covered the experiment was par- tially funded by the coffee com- pany. The July 19, 1951, edito- rial in The Issaquah Press criti- cized the project. "What seemed an odoriferous story to us was not the aroma of coffee but the stench of free ad- vertising sponsored by our mili- tary organizations. Since when are our defense dollars being used by a private business?" the editorial said. Project Revere did not end at Issaquah. Other cities, such as Walla Walla, Salt Lake City, Seat- tle and Boise, Idaho, were also involved, Dodds said. The airdrops in Salt Lake on July 26 took a more serious tone to test how quickly news spreads without the aid of modern com- munications. Postcards were dropped ask- ing, "If this were an enemy leaflet dropped to warn you of an atomic attack coming today, what would you do?" The ques- tionnaire suggested recipients might call defense authorities, stay home, go to an emergency center or leave town. "The Issaquah component was important and subse- quently helped to inform a great deal of research into rumor, and communications research more generally," Dodds said. "Leafleting, of course, is still used to this day by U.S. armed forces in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. We're interested in why the humble leaflet still retains a saliency in the Inter- net era."

"It is a way to also en- courage students do it on their own, to try art and new skills in a way where they get great recogni- tion." All categories are judged at the school, district, state and na- tional levels, except film/video and dance choreography, which are only judged through the state level. Of the 244 students, 52 are moving on to the state competi- tion, Connie Rawson, co-chair for the event, said. One of those was Mackenzi Hi- rayama, an eighth-grader from Beaver Lake Middle School, who took a photo of a telephone pole from its base looking upward. "I took the photo in my first- trimester photography class," she said about her photo, titled "Unreachable." "We were sup- posed to try a new technique for taking pictures, so we were walking around, and I looked up and came across the pole. I took the camera and set it against it, and I just thought it turned out really cool, how it blended even- tually and looked like the sky." "The project was designed to get kids to look at the world from a different angle and take a more artful approach to their photos," said Leora Clemans, Mackenzi's photography teacher. "That hap- pened with Mackenzi's even though she was a beginner." Mackenzi said she has since taken up photography as a hobby and her parents recently bought her a camera. PTSA members received more than 1,277 entries from students from various grade levels and 21 schools in the district. "Some students are talented at athletics, some are talented artists and some are gifted writ- ers," said Superintendent Steve Rasmussen, who attended the re- ception. "Art is a very important part of our curriculum that we have in our schools and this pro- gram gives students another op- portunity to shine."
