Corrections:

In the Economics Resource Guide, page 5, column 1, the 2nd to last line of the 3rd paragraph should read: “…the line of 36° 30' latitude…”

In the Language and Literature Resource Guide, page 29, in the 6th line of the 1st paragraph, “Forma” should be corrected to read “Forms” (“Forms and patterns meant nothing.”)

Teams should be aware that no test items will be asked concerning the number of seats in the House gained by Democrats in the 1862 election since this figure varies depending on the source—likely due to the number of small parties that fielded candidates and varying interpretations of which candidates should be classified as Democrats. (Page 52 of the Super Quiz Resource Guide gives the number as 32; page 60 originally gave it as 34, but USAD corrected this to 32. While 32 is the figure given by many reliable sources, other sources offer different numbers.)

In the Music Resource Guide, page 48, the first line of the 1st column should read: “On April 9, 1865….”
It has come to our attention that an error was made on this year’s music CD. The vendor who compiles and records the CD recorded the incorrect work for track #2. The work recorded on track #2 is Gottschalk’s “Souvenir de Porto Rico” instead of “The Last Hope.” Due to this error, there will be no test items on “The Last Hope” (nor any on “Souvenir de Porto Rico”).
