Brewer, one of the FHA was a big help also. Plates shook and knees were knocking but the officers were suc- cessful and didn't spill any plates or hot coffee on any guests. The Chamber of Commerce will donate $50 to the FHA treasurey for their duties. The officers ate after all the guests had been served. They had a good time cheering on the eating contest between Johnny, John and Steve. Journalism Class "I had a good time at high school," said Eddie, "especially Journalism with Mr. Wylie...I was in there every day, and even though I didn't do anything most days, it was fun t" When questioned about Eddie's jour- nalistic abilities, Mr. Wylie said, "It was hard to tell if he was a good student or not -- he never wrote anything l Although, like he said, he did come to school every day..." "I majored in Physical l~ducation because of my great interest in sports," stated Eddie emphatically. "I think it's great to share experiences and new ideas, and as a coach, I'll have the op- portunity to do so with high school players." As well as high school sports, Eddie is an avid fan of golf. ("I went to Florida recently while the Doral Open was in full swing -- excuse the punl") water- skiing and snowskiing; generally, all sports. However, in addition to his tight schedule concerning training for his coaching position, Eddie finds time to teach two women's fitness classes to help those ladies firm up and stay in shape. They are held two days a week: one at the First Baptist Church in Malakoff and the other in Star Harbor." The highlight of Eddie's life is his fiancee, Jeri Beck, a senior at U.T.T. She comes from Mesquite, and as Eddie tells the story, "We met at University and will be married on July 12th, 1980. We'll probably live in Mesquite until I find a good job." Concerning his twenty-first birthday which falls on April 5th, Eddie says that "folks can send all presents and donations to 'Poor Eddie Fund', Box 365 -- no C.O.D.'s acceptodI" Currently, Eddie does not have a job. He did, however hold a position at Texas Clay, working "long" hours in the sample department. "I made samples, (logical, huh) for distributors. I quit so I could go back to college. "I also took guitar lessons for about six months and had to stop because college took up too much time. I spend all my time now, studying for college." In July, Eddie will be leaving Malakoff. "I want to get away from here," he said reflectively. "I lived here all my life and now I figure it's time for a change." A member of Malakoff's First Baptist Church and a positive thinker, Eddie concluded the interview by saying, "People don't value life as much as they should. In this world, people need to learn to live together in order to solve the complicated problems of the world." When he gets married, Eddie will be leaving the family nest. He'll be star- ting to build his own and says, "I'm gonna love it." BYKATHI PHINNY was Dr. Earl Reum, workshop con- entire life.

BY CHIP SOUZA The seventh grade Kittens, riding the crest of a sudden hot streak, blazed by the Mabank Panthers 26-20 in a Jan. 28 game. It marked their third district win in four games. The shooting of both teams in the first quarter was as cold as the weather out- side. Each team could only manage one bucket in the first 8 minutes of play. The Kittens opened up in the second quarter finding the hoop for nine points. Jeff Prentice led the charge with five. Mabank, their shots still not falling, were shut out in the quarter and the kit- tens held an 11-2 lead at the half. Rodney Branch provided the kittens with all of their offense in the third period as he hit four points. Meanwhile, Mabank started to find the range to the tune of six points to cut the Kittens lead to 15-8. Both teams found the going much bet- ter in the final stanza as they had their most productive scoring. The Kittens tallied 11 and Mabank countered with 12 making the final count 26-20 Malakoff. Prentice was the leading scorer for the Kittens with 10 points.
