THIS WEEK AT ASC By: Simmons McGehee ASC played their final football game of the season last Friday night against WCCA in Woodville. Saturday was the Fall Fest, and Landon Leake was crowned King, and Blair Walsh was crowned Queen. This year's Fall Fest was one of the most successful ever thanks to all the hard work of the classroom kings and queens, the parents, students, and all who par- ticipated in Saturday's events. Tuesday the basketball players and parents met with the coaches for a Pot Luck supper. The girl's basketball team began their season with a tournament Wednesday at ACCS in Natchez. The tournament will continue with games on Thursday and Saturday.

L HAZARDS OF TOBACCO USE PROGRAM COMES TO AMITE SCHOOL CENTER Suzanne Ellis, representing Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi, came to A.S.C Elementary and presented a program to grades 3-6 on the haz- ards of tobacco use in all forms.

A healthy animal's heart and one showing the effects of nicotine were on display with other exhibits. Teachers and students alike learned many stats on the hazards of smoking and inhaling second- hand smoke.
