Technical High School students involved with the play "Ten Little Indians" will make some changes to tonight's opening after people complained to the school's administration about the title.
The administration asked the artistic director to explain before the play begins that the title isn't meant to offend American Indians. The program will be printed with "And Then There Were None," the name of the Agatha Christie book on which the play is based, in large print and the title in small print.
That was, of course, the American title of Agatha's novel. The British title was "Ten Little *******." [Fill in the plural of a dialect variation of the Spanish word for black.] If the students had used *that* title, they'd be hung.
