While attending HCJC, Chuck makes his home in Malakoff with his er Pearlie Wilson. He plans to e his education at East Texas follow- ing graduation from HCJC. The artist is not personally acquainted with the subjects of this week's eature. "Ah, it's only about s 30 minute job," Cbarles told Editor Cu'isJe Bocell. Asked how long he'd been interested in art, Charles said, "Always -- I've never been a talker, but rather have expressed myself with pictures for as long as I canremem- The News takes great pride in introducing the flowing tal- eat of Chuck Omningham. The Territory Traveler Breaks Ankle A Makoff man broke a bone in hls ankle Friday night when he fell dov the hill  the south end of the football field. Mr. Doyle  z0erted- ly stepped off the mud onto the grass to let somebody pass, and hls feet ilipped out from uder hlm duri the rain storm that oeeun during the Friday Highway 90 Progress Slowed By Recent Heavy Rains Harbor Road was seriously "I didn't need out anyway -- quested by County Attorney hampered last week due to rain and more rain. Tuesday morning of last week R was difficult to tell ff motor- isis were going or coming from Caney. Vehicles slipped and sloshed -- in free wheel fashion -- side first, front first, and back first when moving at all in the 3 inch innocent looking topping. Construction workers patiey pushed and pulled dozens of mo- torists who became stalled as they opened a more firm path which relieved the pile-ups by mld-moming. J. E. Howard's corruction Supt. Fred Chancy told the News that he regretted the in- convenience -- which continued throughout the week-end and at one point Saturday virtually isolated Star Harbor residents within their city, but that pro- jects without detour routes "are just bad -- anyway and especial- ly bad when it mira at the wrong time. This sure is a bunch of rain -- and at a bed time." Area residents, however, seemed good humored about the circumstances -- one Mal- akoff man overheard to say, "Oh well, it don't bother me I was only leaving because it was too wet for golf." Kicked off in mid-June, con- struction persormel had esti- mated the projects -- one reno- vation and straightening of FM 90 from Highway 31 north to the second bridge; two, a wew 1 mile section exiting Hwy. 90 opposite the old oil mill and connecting with the former Star Harbor ad (also being reno- vated) and ending at a point near the dam were planned for completion before the fall rains began. Last week completion date, according to Chaney, could be "anywhere from 60 to 160 rnm'e days." Forms for curb and gutter-- beginning on 90 at 31 -- were being erected at the time of th writg. Malakoff, earlier accepting an obligation in excess of $13: 000.00 for a share of the curb and gutter expense in order not to delay the project, was successful in passing the tab to the county. Working out the financial ar- rengerneats was credited to co- operative effort between Mal. akoff Mayor O. A. Phillips and Precinct One Commissioner Jimmy Kettles. Ed Reichelt of the law firm Brenmm and Reichelt, which represents Malakoff, was on hand during the negotiations with the county commissioners court. PP&K Kick.0ff At Tiger Field, 10 A.M. Saturday, October 2 has been declared Punt, Pass and Kick Day by Mayor O. A. Phillips, Jr. of Matakoff. More than ? ? yougsters, ages eight through thirteen, are ex- pected to match punting, pass- ing and place-kicking skills in local competRion on that day, Mayor Phillips noted. The Ma- lakoff Punt, Pass and Kick pro- gram is sponsored by the foot- ball coaches and A1 Inmon Ford Sales. In his proclamatk Mayor Phillips pointed out that Punt, Pass and Kick "oers young boys an opportunity to compete in a national program which underlines the  of physical conditioning basic to forms of excelienee." Gasoline Punt, Pass & Kick is in its llth year under the co-sponsor- ship of the National Football League avd the Ford Dealers of America. Participation this year is expected to top 1,000,- 000 for the fourth year in a row. Participants in the program compete only against boys their own age. No special equipment is needed and participation does not impair a boy's amateur standing. There is no body con- tact and any boy, eight through thirteen years of age, is eligible to register at a participating Ford dealer. No entrance fee is required. Pu, Pass and Kick receives the enthusiastic support of ath- letic coaches throughout the United States. George Allen, head coach of the Washington Redskins for examFe, has de. scribed the program as "the finest youth activity of its .kind Meg Green, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James R. Green of Lake. way Estates in Tool and a mem. ber of the Cedar Creek Riding Club, displays the 38-inch tro- phy presented to her as "High Point" winner of the Tri-County Association of riding clubs, last Saturday night at Pickett. Meg broke the all-time high point record of the a$=eciation with points totaling 453V2 for the sea- son (adult competition includ- ed). Never before has any one member scored as many as 400 Points in a season. In the com- petition last Saturday night, Meg racked up 47 Points with four 1st, one 2nd, four 3rd, end one 5th place. This is her sec- ond year in riding competition, and she won high point trophy last year in her age group.

Larldn squeeded the br;,kes, flipped the car a- round, and drove down to the Sugar Shack. It seems that the Sugar Shack evolved around a sign that one of the Becp Beep youngsters came by. The sig is only about 0xl0 inches. A giant barbecue pit smothers the entry -- which maybe inspired a fireplace wall on the inside of the Sugar Shack. As I recall a giant fiat rock made a table -- half inside -- half outside (at night ballgame at Tiger Field damoods, etc.) It is a nice big Eve/'ythi Room -- with maybe a porch.

My reasons for voting no are numerous -- and too complex to list, but to summarize, I'm an Amer- kan and I cherish the freedoms we have left. My meager purpose here is to try to preserve the free- doms we have -- and on the side -- to try to brlnl back some of those which we have lost. When all income has been obligated to taxation -- it will be difficult to prove how America differs from Russia.

Hippies? V not! Construction Company -- when Pete Airheart, a foreman on the joint highway 90 -- Star Harbor Road projects -- made a spot check of the st'age taks following the Trojan game Saturday night. Aeart said the men, rang- ing in age from about 18 to 35, had already filled the plck-up truck they were driving with gas and were likely going to fill a 55-gallon barrel in their possession, when he and Mrs. Airheart bappe by around 11:00 p.m. He said the rnm at first pre- tended to he associated with the construction company. Airheert said he held the men at the scene of the theft while his wife contacted law officers. Supt.

Speaking of last week's game, Coach Tanner reports that sev- eral of his boys were hindered because of injuries  sickness. David Holcomb, center for the Tigers, was out because of an injury and will probably not be able to play tonight. However, he commends the performance of Tommy Armstrong who came in as center with no previous experience and did a creditable job for the team. David Tapley was also out of the game most of the time because of am injury, and Curtis Brown played with an injury. Coach Tanner is cord'i&mt in his team and feeis that "they will give a good accot of themselves tonight; and will do batter than that ff their heaRh permits."
