2A--The Malakolt News, Thursday, Atwtl lm i Th il in AO per year in Henderson and adjoining counties. WE'RE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN, WI..D WILL DO FOR A JOB,,, in ~y anti roun~avat It's strange how we laugh sometimes at things that are not really funny. It happened here last week at The News office. It was Tuesday, that dreaded day, when work doesn't pause until the job is done and the paper is safely transported to Athens where it is printed. Each one of us in the office have our own appointed Jobs to do and everyone stays busy with little conversation. Loft was at work on the typesetting machine, Dawn was busy putting together ads, Benny was at work on the typewriter with the final sports story of the day while I worked nearby putting pages together. Out of the corner of my eye I caught the beginning of the scene. As Benny busily worked at the typewriter one leg of the chair he was using began to break off.

The chkir gradually drew closer to the floor as the leg continued its dislocation from its mother parts. It happened to he a hack leg, of cour- se, so the failing motion was backward.

As I watched the entire sequence of events Lira and Dawn both realized something was amiss across the room. From the time they looked up from their work all they could see was legs, Benny's legs, in the air. I could see his expression. It was in- describable. I couldn't help it .... I laughed. Lira laughed, then Dawn laughed. We laughed .... and laughed .... and laughed. Finally, getting absolutely no com- fort or support from any of us, Benny m , I pulled himself from his position on the floor. "I don't think I'm hurt said almost as if someone about his condition. Sometime later when a control was regained we breath remaining from laughter to inquire about health, "Did it hurt?" I asked. "It didn't feel too no uncertain terms. Benny did laugh with us.
