                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     In my sixth DM Column, I am going to switch gears, and tell you some of my
fondest memories about my many-year employer, Cannelton High School:
1.   Now the 2nd smallest High School in Indiana
2.   Graduated 43 the in Smitty's class--now down to appx 20.
3.   Had an Olympic half-miler in the late 50s
4.   Hated rival--Tell City Marksmen
5.   One of the last 8-man football teams in Indiana
6.   The city was completely flooded by the Ohio River in '37
7.   Was fed by Myers Grade School (public) and St. Micheal's
8.   Main employer--Cannelton Sewer Pipe--later CanTex
9.   Site of The Cotton Mills (now a restored apartment complex)
10.  Located in scenic, rustic, and redneck Perry County
     Teaching Latin, English, and Literature to this bunch was just as difficult as
getting the locals to eat meals using utensils.  (Wink)

                        Mrs Vaughn DMVI

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SNOWBOUND once again!  What's with ST. MICHAEL?  He actually 
beat SNOWBOUND's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at MIDDLE WAY 6 while they watched RENATA SILL clobber BARGE. 
He lost 1 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged MIDDLE WAY 6's KIRLA LORVIN?  That sort of initiative is how 
she got where she is now.  Try as she might, KIRLA LORVIN wasn't good enough at 
persuading MRS. VAUGHN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
DARQUE FORCES II.  In my day, no team with a 57-61-6 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, LIFE IMPACTS?  What do people see in KIRLA LORVIN?  Hers 18-19-0?  MIDDLE 
WAY 6 ain't talkin', but she's got 104 points.   
     Warriors of SNOWBOUND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Congratulations to Lord Protector Kirla Lorvin.  Both Mrs. Vaughn and Hoops wish it
were them. -- Life Impacts  (A planned public announcement.)

You betcha!  Gratters ta Kirla. -- Smitty

Al Capone -- It pays to be on the side of "right"! -- St. Michael

Kirla -- Luv, I was rather lucky.  Good luck on your well-deserved ascention to The
Big Time. -- Mrs. Vaughn

Zero -- Patience is a virtue, they say.  I think we are both quite virtuous! -- 4-H

Cass Dolan -- Keep working on that fast break.  Your time will come. -- Hoops

Klymenestra -- Whew!  I bow to my betters! -- Durango Kid

The Heap -- We at "Criminal Minds" wish to give our deepest condolences.  Land Fill
was a loss indeed. -- Sir Blackguard

The Spirit of Land Fill -- I would like to say one thing to you, To da dum, to da
dump. -- Ted Bundy

Renatat Sill -- You dirty rat. -- Bugsy

Mrs. Vaughn -- Ah, the inevitable fate of educators:  you train them, and then they
graduate and leave you behind.  But it's been good. -- Kirla Lorvin

Hoops -- You could try that, too! -- Cass Dolan

10 -- Bah. -- Gobert Hinny

Refuse -- With my name corrected, I couldn't refuse to take the win. -- Renata Sill
P.S.  Yes, okay, it's reaching.  Sometimes I do that.

Barge -- I hope this isn't an omen. -- Ladiro Maels

Oh, just HECK.  Very low/low with a shortsword.  NOT inspiring.  I graduate as 13-15-
7-10 (9+1)-17-10-13.  Also, though I'm not much for ego, charisma, or sociability,
I'm above average in courage, quite attractive and trustworthy, and really cool. --
Kirla Lorvin

Hoops -- The problem is that I find it hard to coordinate all seven feet. -- Gobert
Hinny
