It’s Habit Forming: Hornets Again In Playoffs
Continued from Pa%e One
Hornet mentor said. "We need to throw the hall
to loosen them up." He added that "going in, our
objective is to be able to control the ball and
"They run a Wing-T and their offense is very
similar to ours," the THS coach said, "although
they have a better balanced running game due to
their depth. They have four runners who arc
about the same."
Childress' "top back" is Teddy Hopkins, a
210 pound junior. Hopkins has missed the last
two games due to injuries, but "will be back this
week." Thomas Williams, a 185 pound senior, is
"a power-type fullback. He and Hopkins give
them real good balance. Their quarterback can
run, and they have a fourth back who is also a
strong runner."
Chris Reed, a 6'1", 177 pound senior is start-
ing his third campaign as signal-caller for the
Bobcats. A southpaw, Reed "compares pretty
well with West Texas High’s quarterback." His
favorite receiver is Korcy Cornish, a 150 pound
senior end.
The bi-distriet encounter pits the area's two
winningest coaches in Charlie Johnston, who
has 209 wins as a head coach, all at Childress,
and Coach Wilson, whose teams have won 207
games while he served as head mentor at Win-
ters, Floydada and Tulia.
Wilson’s teams advanced to the playoffs
twice while he was at Winters, seven times at
Floydada and four times in his seven seasons at
the Hornet helm. Many of these years, only the
district champion advanced.
While Coach Wilson admits that "it’s great to
have 200 wins,” he is quick to emphasize that
the bi-district game is "between Tulia and Chil-
dress teams, not Charlie Johnston and L. G.
Wilson." He has announced his plans to retire at
the conclusion of this school year.
The bi-district rivals have played two com-
mon opponents this season. Childress opened
the year with a 13-0 victory overQuanah, a team
which Tulia slipped past 14-8 in mid-season.
The Hornets stopped Canyon 21-0 and the
Bobcats downed that team 38-22.
Childress’ other victories have been: Mem-
phis 34-0, Wellington 36-11, Merkel (score not
available), Perryton 23-0, Sanford-Fritch 20-7,
Dalhart 19-8 and River Road 13-6.
Two of the three squads which have knocked
off the Hornets, West Texas High and Floydada,
are in the playoffs. So arc Quanah and Canyon,
both of whom the Hornets stopped. Randall, the
third squad to trip the Hornets, "is break-even in
an extremely tough 4-A district."
While reviewing the abovementioned infor-
mation, Coach Wilson said "that says some-
thing about our schedule."
The Hornets will "have more depth for this
game" as the result of "moving six boys up from
the J V and hopefully having two boys back who
were ineligible for six weeks due to no pass, no
One discouraging note is that tri-captain
Layne Young, a two-way starter, is "definitely
out" for the second consecutive week due to a
knee injury.
Middle linebacker Rob Bice, who sustained a
knee injury against Dimmitt last Friday, was
listed early this week as "questionable," but
Coach Wilson said "we think he'll be back."
Tentative starting lineups for Friday night's
crucial clash include:
Glenn, 163, Sr., and Warren Farmer, 176, sen-
ior; tackles, Chad Howard, 222, Sr., and Chris

By Coach L. G. Wilson
Things were a little uptight around the field
house last week. I could sense it in the boys as
well as the coaches.
We sure didn't want to fall on our face after
doing such a good job of playing ourselves back
into contention.
I thought we started off rather slow but fin-
ished strong. This was encouraging because
going into the playoff you know you're going to
be tested the complete ball game. We believe
we’re ready for an all-out effort this week.

Is There A Difference Between A Real Estate Agent And A Realtor?
Under all is the land. Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership
depend the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilization. The
REALTOR should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens
require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land
ownership. They req.! ^ the creation of adequate housing, the building of
functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the
preservation of a healthful environment.
Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce.
They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which the
REALTOR should dedicate himself,and for which he should be diligent in
preparing himself. The REALTOR, therefore, is zealous to maintain and
improve the standards of his calling and shares with his fellow - REALTORS
a common responsibility for its integrity and honor. The term REALTOR has
come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from
adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No induce-
ment of profit and no instruction from clients ever can ustify departure from this
In the interpretation of his obligation, a REALTOR can take no safer guide
than that which has been handed down through the centi'i ies, embodied in the
Golden Rule, "Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so
to them."
Accepting this standard as his own, every REALTOR pledges himself to
observe its spirit in all of his activities and to conduct his business in
accordance with the tenets set forth below.
The REALTOR should keep himself informed on matters affecting real
estate in his community, the state, and nation so he may be able to contribute
responsibly to public thinking on such matters.
In justice to those who place their interests in his care, the REALTOR should
endeavor always to be informed regarding laws, proposed legislation, govern-
mental regulations, public policies, and current market conditions in order to
be in a position to advise his clients properly.
It is the duty of the REALTOR to protect the public against fraud, misrepre-
sentation, and unethical practices in real estate transactions. He should
endeavor to eliminate in his community any practices which could be damag-
ing to the public or bring discredit to the real estate profession. The REALTOR
should assist the governmental agency charged with regulating the practices
of brokers and salesmen in his state.
The REALTOR should seek no unfair advantage over other REALTORS
and should conduct his business so as to avoid controversies with other
In the best interests of society, of his associates, and his own business, the
REALTOR should be willing to share with other REALTORS the lessons of his
experience and study for the benefit of the public, and should be loyal to the
Board of REALTORS of his community and active in its work.
To prevent dissension and misunderstanding and to Assure better service
to the owner, the REALTOR should urge the exclusive listing of property
unless contrary to the best interest of the owner.
In accepting employment as an agent, the REALTOR pledges himseff to
protect and promote the interests of the client. This obligation of absolute
fidelity to the client's interests is primary, but it does not relieve the REALTOR
of the obligation to treat fairly all parties to the transaction.
The REALTOR shall not accept compensation from more than one party,
even if permitted by law, without the full knowledge of all parties to the
The REALTOR shall avoid exaggeration, misrepresentation, or conceal-
ment of pertinent facts. He has an affirmative obligation to discover adverse
factors that a reasonably competent and diligent investigation would disclose.
The REALTOR shall not deny equal professional services to any person for
reasons of race, creed, sex, or country of national origin. The REALTOR shall
not be a party to any plan or agreement to discriminate against a person or
persons on the basis of race, creed, sex, or country of national origin.
A REALTOR is expected to provide a level of competent service in keeping
with the Standards of Practice in those fields in which the REALTOR custom-
arily engages.
The REALTOR shall not undertake to provide specialized professional
services concerning a type of property or service that is outside his field of
competence unless he engages the assistance of oqe who is competent in
such types of property or service, or unless the facts are fully disclosed to the
client Any person engaged to provide such assistance shall be so identified
to the client and his contribution to the assignment should be set forth.
The REALTOR shall refer to the Standards of Practice of the National
Association as to the degree of competence that a client has a right to expect
the REALTOR to possess, taking into consideration the complexity of the
problem, the availability of expert assistance, and the opportunities for
experience available to the REALTOR.
The REALTOR shall not undertake to provide professional services con-
cerning a property or its value where he has a present or contemplated interest
unless such interest is specifically disclosed to all affected parties.
The REALTOR shall not acquire an interest-in or buy for himself, any
member of his immediate family, his firm or any member thereof, or any entity
in which he has a substantial ownership interest, properly listed with him,
without making the true position known to the listing owner. In selling property
by himself, or in which he has any interest, the REALTOR shall reveal the facts
of his ownership or interest to the purchaser.
In the event of a controversy between REALTORS associated with different
firms, arising out of their relationship as REALTORS, the REALTORS shall
submit the dispute to arbitration in accordance with the regulations of their
board or boards rather than litigate the matter.
If a REALTOR is charged with unethical practice or is asked to present
evidence in any disciplinary proceeding or investigation, he shall place all
pertinent facts before the proper tribunal of the member board or affiliated
institute, society, or council of which he is a member.
When acting as agent, the REALTOR shall not accept any commission,
rebate, or profit on expenditures made for his principal-owner, without the
principal's knowledge and consent.
The REALTOR shall not engage in activities that constitute the
unauthorized practice of law and shall recommend that legal counsel be
obtained when the interest of any party to the transaction requires it.
The REALTOR shall keep in a special account in an appropriate financial
institution, separated from his own funds, monies coming into his possession
in trust for other personsm such as escrows, trust funds, client’s monies, and
other like items.
The REALTOR shall be careful at all times to present a true picture in his
advertising and representations to the public. He shall neither advertise
without disclosing his name or permit any person associated with him to use
individual names or telephone numbers, unless such person's connection with
the REALTOR is obvious in the advertisement.
The REALTOR, for the protection of all parties, shall see that financial
obligations and commitments regarding real estate transactions are in writing,
expressing the exact agreement of the parties. A copy of each agreement
shall be furnished to each party upon his signing such agreement.
The REALTOR shall not engage in any practice or take any action inconsis-
tent with the agency of another REALTOR.
In the sale of property which is exclusively listed with a REALTOR, the
REALTOR shall utilize the services of other brokers upon mutually agreed
upon terms when it is in the best interests of the client.
Negotiations concerning property which is exclusively listed shall be carried
on with the listing broker, not with the owner, except with the consent of the
listing broker.
The REALTOR shall not publicly disparage the business practice of a
competitor nor volunteer an opinion of a competitor's transaction. If his opinion
is sought and if the REALTOR deems it appropriate to respond, such opinion
shall be rendered with strict professional integrity and courtesy.
The REALTOR shall not directly or indirectly solicit the services or affiliation
of an employee or independent contractor in the organization of another
REALTOR without prior notice to said REALTOR.
Note: Where the word REALTOR is used in this Code and Preamble, it shall
be deemed to include REALTOR -ASSOCIATE. Pronouns shall be consid-
ered to include REALTOR-ASSOCIATES of both genders.
