6A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, March 19, 1981 THE In the four previous years that I have coached local youngsters in the junior league's football, basketball and baseball programs pressure has never bothered me. But this year is different. I feel the pressure. I'm not talking of parental pressure Or the stigma of having to win. Heaven knows I've bad my share of run ins with rooms and dads and I've always believed that at this stage of the game winning Is nice, but not really that im- portant. Until this year, that is. Let me tell you of the situation I created for myself. About six or seven weeks ago we were organizing the local Little Dribbler program and It came time to round up sponsors for the teams. I told league president Dee Hoyt not to worry about a sponsor for my team because The News would do the honor. That organizational meeting was on a Sunday and the following morning I was at The News office conning Ann in- to talking our brain trust into the spon- sorship. In making my sales pitch I assured Ann that the team would be successful and reminded her that last year it went undefeated. Two days later I had the $50 check in hand at which point I could feel the pressure beginning to mount deep within my competitive glands. In the days leading up to the season opener everytime I ventured into the of- fice Ann and the rest of the gang were always questioning me as to the progress of the team. I told them not to worry, it was going to be a good season. This seemed to get Ann even more ex- cited and she even suggested that we take the team's shirts and have The Malakoff News printed on the back. The season opener was a toughie against the Gregory Tire Co. team coached by Gary Ashlock. Last year 1 somehow managed to bear Ashlock and he was out for revenge this time around. Believe me, he got it• We lost 38-31 and I dreaded going to the office Monday morning. Sure enough, the first question asked was, "Well how did we do?" I mumbled the answer and quickly changed the subject. We observed an open date on the season's second Saturday so Monday morning would be no problem. Or so I thought. I went strolling into the newsroom buzzing about the exciting overtime win Chip's - Athens Muffler Shop - team had captured. After I had completed my replay of the game, Ann, staring a hole right through me, asked, "I assume you Iostt" Notice how the we had changed toJ. Talking about pressure l ! The reason I tell you of this pressuring experience is just in case, in the weeks to come, you flip to this page and find this corner blank you'll know I cracked under the pressure and was released of my contract• Oh yeah, the idea to have The News on the back of the shirts has been drop- ped. LADY CARDS IN KANSAS For the second straight year Coach Gary Ashlock and his Lady Cardinals are in Overland Park, Kansas for the NJCAA Tournament. With Texas Eastern Conference and Region XIV zone championship trophies already in the trophy case the Lady Cards were scheduled to began I I By Benny Rogers their quest for a national title Wed-. Trinidad's district title, for some nesday at 1 p.m. against LouisburgI strange reason was not named to the Junior College of North Carolina. A Lady Card win over LJC, 30-2 on theyear, would move the Lady Car- dinals into an 8 p.m. tilt tonight (Thur- sday). A loss would place them in a 2:30 p.m. game this afternoon. All Lady Cardinal games can be heard on Jacksonville radio station KOOI-106 on the FM dial. A TROJAN TRIBUTE When the.District 43 A coaches met last week to name their All District team they made sure each team was represented. But in doing so they somehow managed to overlook a very deserving player. That will not be the case here as this corner wants to salute Trinidad's playmaker, senior Vincent Norris. Norris, whose quarterhacking of the Trojans' offense and play at the top of their zone defense was a key factor in 43A team. Norris was not the top scorer for the Trojans but that was not his job. His assignment was to run the offense, which be did in a winning manner. In the four Trojan games I had the oppor- tunity to cover this season I always had the feeling that Norris was in complete control and usually he was. While Norris will not have an All District patch to don his letter jacket he will have the personal satisfaction of knowing he did his job with the utmost effort. Little Dribbler Players of the Week Returning to the top spots, which they captured after the first week, this week are Marci Ferrell and Greg Ashlock. Marci, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Ferrell, easily claimed the top spot in the girls division with her 16- point performance in her team's second straight victory. Greg, son of Coach and Mrs. Gary Ashlock, netted 41 points in two games to just nose out three other players for this week's superlative spotlight. Just behind Ashlock were: (two game scoring totals in parenthesis) Bart Beasley (33), Clyde Dowell (33), Eric Clendenning (30), Billy Hughes (20) and Mike Lowery (18). Making the honorable mention list for week number three were: Mike Hoyt, Grady Baker, Rocky Hale, Paul Loper, Mark Trice, Wendy Williams, Alisha Harris, Tyra Green, Chris Ivey, ROd- ney Slaton, Steve Gregory, Frank Pat- tison, Scan Stenovitch, Donnie Hodge, Jana Clark, Michelle Wright and Tammy Holyfield.

Yet, to talk about weight loss while gaining weight is not only acceptable but fashionable behavior in our society, White told those who attended the Sixth Annual Nutrition Press Symposium, co- sponsored by Dairy Council, Inc., and Texas Cattle Feeders Assoc. "We live in a country where discussion of dieting, diet books and spas is conversation at calori~-laden cocktail parties and heavy dinners," he said, "where it is chic to be thin but more chic to be on the way to thinness." White's belief that more dollars arc spent on worthless 'cures' for obesity than on all medical research is suppor- ted by statistics. Recent estimates show that the diet industry accounts for $I0 billion of the Gross National Product. White accused the latest four best-selling diet publicly advocating their trol plans without first ex the critical review of their Popularized diets fail because they cannot propriate and highly motivation and instruction successful adherence, White S In his opinion, obesity better than 100 pounds of ter which diet is chosen. should emphasize personal trol and exercise more control components such as sodium and sugar.
