The Super Quiz, the last contest of the ninth Los Angeles County Academic Decathlon, attracted the most attention because it was the only part of the event open to the public.

About 170 students and staff members at Wilson High School will be tested for possible exposure to tuberculosis, according to the Long Beach Unified School District. The screening, which parents will be notified about on Monday, was prompted by the infection of an individual at the school and will be conducted in early April. People who had contact with the infected person will have a substance injected under the skin of their forearm. The area will be checked a few days later, and, if signs of exposure are present, the person's chest will be X-rayed by the city's health department or their personal physician, Robert Tagorda, assistant to the superintendent, said.
