PAGE 8 ¢ THE PAXTON New Teacher I ar inec We have a new student-tea- cher who will join our Physi- cal Education Department on March 26. He is Bill Mar- tinec, a 21-year-old graduate of Walton High School. He is originally from Washington Stale and was raised in De- Funiak. Since he is 6'8" tail, it would be likely for him to like bas- ketball. In fact, he says that when he was a junior at Wal- ton, he almost tore a back- board from our gym in a game. He doesn't stick to basketball though, he also likes chess, astronomy, and music. He says he has played the organ for 12 years and his greatest thrill in life is to destroy Mr. Wooten in a game of chess. He was also a former President of the Astromony Club. Martinec also likes to write free verse. Mr. Martinec went to LSU for 2 years before coming to West Florida, and played bas- ketball at both. When asked about PHS he said that the kids are a lot more under control and don't have as many pro- blems. He also said he would rather teach here than at any other school in this county. He also says that he would really like to see Paxton win the State Tournament!
