[*:TI'-soc,--,oN !iii i:  iiii, ad lib by donna scheibe Four years ago when I became editor of the Mala- koff News I discovered a fringe benefit that came with the newspaper. A tiny, very efficient blonde named Ann Rounsavall came to work all day Monday and until noon on Tuesday to report the Trinidad news. Ann was so quiet and busy with her responsi- bilities...and I was so  swamped with mine...that it took several months until I realized just how great a : fringe benefit she was. As the paper grew in size and the work load increased I began to give more and more assignments to Ann. ' No matter what I asked her to do, she did well and without complaining. Ann, I said one morning, I want . you to write a feature story every week about interesting  people in the area. She had i never written a feature story, wasn't even sure how to begin one. But that didn't slow her down. She just took her camera and her notebook ii/'went O id te feature stories; GOod ones! Soon she was covering school board and city council ? meetings, not with a great deal of enthusiasm because she was intimidated about . the importance of what she was doing and the necessity to report the proceedings ; accurately. Determination " and perseverance made up for her lack of experience and * soon she was handling that responsibility as capably as she did feature stories. Putting the paper to- gether was a job that I agonized over each week. Ann came back and helped Political Calendar U.S. CONGRESS Dist. 1 Dr. Glen Jones Rt. 3, Athens Sam B. Hall Marshall TAX ASSESSOR Keith Hearn  Athens : Billie E. Richardson f Athens COUNTY TREASURER Jane Holland Taylor Rt. 1, Athens COMMISSIONER Prec, 1 Leo Kinabrew Rt. Malakoff Jim Blakeney Athens me one Wednesday and guess what? She had a natural aptitude for make up and soon she was doing five pages in the same time I was laboring over the front page. She took on another pro- ject...a column every week that our readers know as "Me-ann-dering." Ann was now working full time. She also had a full time job at home-- two small children and an ambitious, civic minded husband. Ann and Bobby never miss a Trinidad football or basket- ball game and are staunch supporters of all school activities. Bobby is a trustee on the school board and was the first president of the Trini- dad Jaycees, an organization that won national recogni- tion under his administra- tion. While Ann was spend- ing her days at the news- paper, she was also spending her evenings working with Bobby on Jaycee activities. They traveled all over the state, and were fully in- volved with local improve- ment projects, managing somehow to find time for their children's activities, too. In February last year we expanded our organization with the purchase of three other newspapers. Tom Herline became editor of the Malakoff News: I took over Mabank and Kemp; and we needed an editor for Kerens. Who me? asked Ann, when we told her. "I can't be an editor!" But she could...and she was a good one. She applied herself to the new job with the same diligence and en- thusiasm she expends on everything she does. We promised her all kinds of help which we were never able to give, but she coped. And she never complained... just worked harder. We're very proud of Ann. We are also very sad that she is leaving us this week. Our busy little bird has decided it's time to leave the nest and accept a new challenge. Next week she goes to work for the City of Trinidad as city secretary. Lucky Trinidad! Holly Hughes, a talented young journalism student, will be replacing Ann this summer as the Kerens editor. Holly is a good writer, an excellent photo- grapher, and I know she will serve the community well and be a good editor. I also know that Ann will be busy 0and happy with her new job and Trinidad will be happy with her. Why, then, am I crying?

Wed- to the editor To the Editor I sincerely regret that an attempt was made to inject the race issue into the district attorney's race be- tween Bill Green and myself. I want to assure the citizens of this district that I did not have anything to do with the preparation or distribution of the circular that was used on the last day of the campaign only hours before the polls opened. If any person or persons interested in my campaign were responsible for the circulation of the circular, I want to apologize personally to Bill Green because there has never been anything in his public or private life to indicate tome that he qs any racial bias or prejudice or that any such considera- tions ever entered into the Malakoff's Little League To Organize Parents of boys interested in Little League baseball play this spring are invited to attend an organizational meeting Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Little League Baseball diamond behind the Mala- koff Elementary School.

Certainly I want to apolo- gize to the black citizens, many who are my family's personal friends who might have been offended by the circular and assure them that I deplore this attempt to exploit them. I have had a constructive meeting with Bill Green and personally tendered him my apology and congrat- ulations. I have assured him that I will cooperate with him in an orderly transition of the responsibilities of his office.

Congratulations on the well-deserved awards that the News received this year. ! especially appreci- ated the Ad Lib column on the situation of the Jews In Syria and the letters that were vrinted in response.
