Second runner-up was Cynthia Lynn Adams, 18, of Gun Barrel City, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Adams. Third runner- up was Kimberley Jensen, 18, of Emory (Rains County), daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald C. Jensen. The pageant ran smoothly, with former Miss Teen-age America Rebecca Reid sparkling as Mistress of Ceremonies. Ms. Reid also provided some pleasant entertainment singing several songs. Miss Athens 1977 Krista Woodruff Hill also filled in a few gaps between Duchesses' competitions with some songs. A pageant highlight was the farewell speech given by Miss Black-Eyed Pea 1980 Renee Landers. She thanked everyone associated with the Jam- boree, commenting "it's great to know we can still have good, clean fun...enjoy the simple things in life." Ms. Landers also thanked the judges for giving her the opportunity to serve as Miss Black-Eyed Pea, and remarked that the experience of participating in the pageant "gave me more con- fidence, poise and a better chance to represent East Texas." Ms. Reid had also commented on why girls enter these pageants: to gain financially through scholarships; for personal growth and takes place by and accomplish them more said. and evening terviews which the day with the personality 5 point system.

COX David Wade's radio gourmet' show ushered in the finals of the 1 lth Annual Black-Eyed Pea Jamboree Cook-off competition to thousands in touch with Athens through WFAA radio Saturday. Later, cook-off chairman Howard Arnold announced to those personally in attendance and to the radio audience, "Our grand champion is Tenna Marie Derrick of Ben Wheeler with her Reci- pea forTossed Marinated Pea Salad." Winners in their respective categories were Joyce Carroll of Athens for Fiesta Pea Cups in the vegetable/main dish group; Myra Teague of Brownsboro for Jala-Pea-No Egg Rolls in the appetizer division; and Diane ,Milner of Murchison for Saucy- Pea Cake in the peanique category. In addition to being grand champion, Mrs. Derrick won the salad competition. Winners of each of the categories each received a check for $250 and Mrs. Derrick also took home a silver serving tray. For the second consective year, Wade delivered a "play-by-play" report of the activities from the student union building at Henderson County Junior College. Returning personalities who judged the culUnary delights were a group of media and food experts including Terlinga cook-off champion Albert Agnor; KRLD radio commentator Alex Burton; newspaper publisher and former television newscaster Roy Eaton; WBAP radio news director Joe Holstead; free lance food writer Marilyn Ingrain; KXAS television newscaster Carolyn Raiser; and chili cook, restaurateur and colmnist for the Dallas Morning News Frank Tolbert. Two new judges, "Buffalo" George Toomer, international critic on junk food and soon to be contributor to "PM Magazine" syndicated television show and Dorothy Griffith, food editor for the Dallas Morning News, made up the rest of the illustrious panel. Dick Hitt, feature writer for the Dallas Times Herald, was on hand but could not judge because of a sore throat which developed after his arrival in Athens Friday. As the judges were making their rounds tasting the,20 finalist Reel-peas, Wade made an ocer-the-air refere~ to Tolbert's specialky by comnmnting, "every one of those black-eyed pea dishes are a whole lot better than Tolbert's chili." Two previous grand champions who failed to make the final 20 testified to the stiff competition. Linda Martin, last year's featured winner, said, "It's different to the years before. I believe the preliminary judging was closer than before." Grand champion of 1979 and category winner last year Bill Johnston ex- claimed, "It's tough competition this year. Look, Mrs. Martin nor I either one made the finals and that's unusual." As if to verify Mrs. Martin and Johnston's comments, Burton made three trips back to the tables muttering on one trip, "I've got to go back and make some more notes." After Mrs. Charlene Covington of the David Holdredge accounting firm had tabulated the scores of the winners, additional problems arose. Five of the nine judges couldn't believe one of the categories ended as it did. A retabulation resulted, discussion and second vote of the judges ensued. Finally, everyone was satisified with the decision. Second and third place winners along with two honorable mentions per categery are listed in order below. ,~ VEGETABLE/MAIN DISH: Cathy Thompson, Athens, Athen- ..... late Wok; Nancy Cofln, Athen~, Pea-licious Casserole with Corney Bread Topping; Lisa FrizzeU, Athens, Martha Sullivan, Mar- shall, Black-eye Boudin. ~ SALAD: Morris Johnson, Hunts ville, Peking Peas; Mrs. Charles Hawn, Athens, Crab Hoppin John; Bettie Miller, Athens, Summer's Super Salad; Darlene and Kellie Deupree, Athens, Athens' Black Eye Mousse.

Even though it has gone fancy, square dancing maintains its orginal have a lot of fun. The Pea Pickers Square Dance Club of Athens wound up the first day of Black-Eyed Pea Jamboree festivities by hosting a smooth- paced evening Friday of square dance fun for about 500 people in the Henderson County Junior College Student Union Building ballroom. The square dancing was punc- tuated with round dancing and a black-eyed pea dinner with all the trimmings. Officially opening the dance was the grand march with 88 couples led by state, East Texas and club officials, About 20 clubs were represented with dancers from many different cities and states. Dick and Laverne Thompson from Anderson, Calif., probably traveled the greatest distance. They came 2,200 miles for this do- si-do. Allen Garrett, well-known square dance caller from Tyler, provided the directions as the floor was full with about 20 squares, containing four couples each, most of the evening. Garrett travels throughout Texas and the surrounding states calling for square dancers. He is the official caller for the Pea Pickers. , @ The Pea Pickers Square Dance Club sponsors lessons through Henderson County Junior College beginning in January each year. Brief respites for the square dancers came between tips. (A tip is two dances.) Round dances, cued by Bob Wilder of Longview, provided the breaks although many square dancers joined these. Several round dance clubs were also present. A round dance exhibition by the B & B Rounders of I~gview rivaled a lot of professionally choreographed dances seen on TV and in the movies. This group was formed by Bob and Barbara Wilder. Bob is a round dance cuer and instructor and Barbara originates and writes the choreography. Sam and Frieda Dyer, presidents of the Pea Pickers, learned to square dance in 1952. Their caller taught with a live band. Most dances now use records. The Pea Pickers is basically a square dance club, but some round dancing is also done. At Friday night's dance, spec- tators seemed to enjoy the evening as much as the dancers. Looking at the nametags to see where the couples were from became a part of watching the action as the Rambling Roses, Haylofters, Log Cabin Swingers, DeSota Stars and Stompin' Saints danced by. The Pea Pickers from Athens were quickly identified with a big black-eyed pea appliqued on each costume.
