The Clarendon Press, October 25, Page 7 "-- -':'?- m -- I Hit or Miss l II By DAVID EVERMAN 1t In the past week the town of Clarendon has undergone a transformation from a quiet, peaceful Texas hamlet to a town carried away by an intense feud. The feud, of course, was with district rival Memphis and culminated with the game Friday night that probably decided the district crown, barring upsets by smaller teams down the road. In the midst of this rivalry, a smaller one, but one no less intense, has been developing in the offices of The Press. Helen Woody, office manager and Anson '46 grad, has been going 'round and 'round with Sally Hester, ad maker and Hamlin '69 graduate. This rivalry has been going on since the football season began, and every Monday the office is informed that the Anson Tigers did this or the Hamlin Pied Pipers did that. Of course, the last thing the Pipers did was hand a 34-20 loss to the Childress Bobcats, the same team that did in both Clarendon and Memphis by 13-0 scores. As can be imagined, the Monday after that game all that was said around here either pertained to the Hamlin-Childress games or ended up referring to the Childress-Hamlin game somehow. Not too much has been said about Anson, since Helen can't find much to say about a team that is plugging along with only one win to its credit, but the office personnel do get to hear such things as "Act like a ching, act like a chow, act like a ching-ching-chow-chow-chow," when Mrs. Woody is in a pep-rally mood. That is a terrible thing to be regaled with on a Monday morning (or any morning for that matter), but that cheer is the best of the lot. There are other cheers that would curl your hair. In compodwn with Helen's cheerleading heroics, Sally has been rather quiet, preferring the smug look most supporters of an undefeated team effect when confronting a fan of their arch-rival, especially when said arch-rival is not having a very successful year on the gridiron. Sally just comes to work in the morning, wearing her green Hamlin Pied Piper windbreaker, and goes about her business with only an occasional word about her team. Helen usually manages to bring her out of this by Scotch-taping a hastily devised pro.Anson poster to the wall behind her desk, which gets things going. These two ladies are not the only ones getting into the act, however. Somebody drew a cartoon of someone going "yay, Ansonl" on Helen's note pad and labeled it "Helen." As of yet, the culprit has not been discovered, but there are strong suspicions. Sally met with ridicule f6r two or three days after first wearing her Pied Piper windbreaker because the editor could not believe that anyone would call a team "The Pied Pipers" and keep a straight face and clear conscience. Bronchos? OK. Cyclones? No sweat. Indians? All right. But Pied Pipers? Never. It's a wonder they can even field a team under the nickname of "Pied Pipers." This competition has not even reached full proportions yet. On November 16, the Anson Tigers and the Hamlin Pied Pipers meet on the football field in the season's last game. The game will not mean much title-wise to either team, since Hamlin will probably have clinched the district crown and Anson will probably have given up hope for anything. But, oh boy, will it be fun around here for a week before and after the Anson.Hamlin (or Hamlin-Anson) game. I'm glad I'm a newswriter instead of a pro football ref6ree. Sunday, during theDallas game, this one o1' referee was standing there, minding his own business When Ralph 'Nt61y '- came roaring up and got revenge for all his holding penalties by knocking'this ref about five yards. Then Calvin Hill hit him and knocked him another five yards. Then the crowd started to boo him. Some days it just doesn't pay fo get up. Israel's back in the driver's seat in the Mideast: America finally got the Russians to start talking peace. The Soviets dragged out these peace talks while the Arabs were winning the war, but they're quick on the trigger for peace talks now that Israel's twenty miles from Damascus and fifty miles from Cairo. It only took little Israel three weeks to get the Arabs down this time, instead of six days. They must be dragging things out for the fun of it.And while they are dragging things out, the U. S. is getting shorted on the oil market by the Arabs. Maybe after this we will get our stuff together and start developing our own resources and not have to depend on other nations for the survival of our economy. Freedom From Self Selflslme is the basic drive behind human behavior. It may carry many names; alterior motive, common interest, etc. Nations exhibit this in their interactions. Politicians practice this when helping to sponsor each other's actions. Competition is a form of selfishness. Not all self-based behavior is strictly evil. A three year old says, "mine" to everything in sight. At times this may be cute, yet when exhibited in adult behavior it becomes ugly and distasteful. Jesus Christ teaches us, "The first of all commandment= la, Hear, O lsraeh The Lord our God Is one Lord: And thou sindt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength; this Is the first commandment. And the second Is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There Is none other commandment greater than these" [Mark 12=29-31]. The basic drive behind our behavior is love. First and foremost, we are to love God totally, without reservation. And then we are to love our fellowman the same way, regardless of who they might be or what they might be. Everything the Word of God teaches is founded on these two precepts, "On these two...hang all the law sad the prophets" [Matthew 22:40]. When these are actively present in our lives, they overcome our self-motive. One basic precept underlies all of this, that God is one Lord, He will not share any dominance with any other 'god.' A signil[icaqt point can be seen in the order that they are taught. The second precept is dependent absolutely on the first. Our love of God is the only secure and permanent basis for our love of our fellowman. When oar love is not based in God, then its liability is self-gratification, self-interest, and sentimentality'. Selfishness as a motive for our behavior is the root of sin in our lives. This root can be replaced by God's love within us. We face thisvhen we make a choice as to who our 'God' will be - myself or the Lord God? By faith we are made free, and by faith we continue to be free. The Gospel of Jesus Christ offers true freedom to all who I respond to its call. This is freedom from sin and freedom from ' self. Now we come to the heart of it all - am I willing to submit to the love of God in my life? That question we all need to answer. How we respond is the act that determines whether we are free or servants to sin and self. The Church of the Nazarene invites you to its services to share in the freedom of the Gospel. Opportunities are: Church school, 9:45 a.m., Morning worship, 11:00 a.m., Evening worship, 7:00 p.m., Mid-week Bible study, 7:30 p.m Wednesday. We urge all to attend church regularly as families/
