Elmo Yarbrouvh. fire mar- shall of Malakoff. has issued a plea to the person or oer- sore who borrowed the fire- men's coffee pot to please re- turn same. "These fu'emen are about to drive me crazy," he said. "They come in here wanting their coffee and I don't blame them, but we don't have a pot to make it in." The copper colored, 24 cup electric percolator is the pro- nerty of the department and has been missing for around two months. Yarbrough says it is his ovinion that someone or group of persons borrowed the cof- fee maker and has simply fail- ed to return R. He to~ the News that he had inquired among the churches, business firms and individuals in an at- tem~ to find the pot but has yet been unable to trace it's whereabouts. He feels that all is needed is to jog the memory of local residents and someone will re- member where the percolator is. From the imqux of vehicles pulling horse trailers and com- partments especially made to carry dogs, those not in the know might very will think Malakoff had reverted back to the frontier days during last week. Such was not the case. how- ever, as the migrants and their animals had invaded the area to participate in the Tex- as Open Field Championship Trials for bird dogs. The event, planned months ago, drew trainers, owners and their entrants from all over the southwest. Some of the most famous and high earned dogs in the nation were ,in competitior Following the close of trials in other states, trainers and their pro~gees left inanedlate- ly for Malakoff and set up headquarters in the Flame Mo- tel in Athens. On Monday evening, the names of 31 pointers and eight setters were placed in a hat for the drawing. James V. An- derson and Dr. J. A. Hoffmeis- ter served as judges. Each brace of the champ- ionship dogs, ranging from age two to ten years, were required to run for one and one-half hours with no brace covering the same territory. The dogs were judged on style of performance, covies found and manner in which they treated the birds. Dogs entered in the derby, ages two or two and half, were run for thirty minutes at a time. The first championship brace to run on Tuesday morning was composed of Palariel Stormy Pat, a white and fiver pointer hamlled by Ray Mar. one,/ and Kansas City Jake, a white and orange pointer, handled by Bud Daughtery. The brace began on the north side of Highway 31 in west Malakoff and covered quite a bit of acreage before winding up south of town. Judges for the field trial events were R. J. (Dick) God- dard of Grand Junction, Tenn and Jim Anderson of Dallas.
