Paae 4 DecAmbAr 3= 199 Oud Cily Herald :ateros FBLA collecting for needy Pateros High School students are soliciting cans, boxes and bags of non-perishable food that will in turn be passed on needy families during the Christmas season. The annual food drive is sponsored by the high school's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter. A competition for the junior high and high school classes is part of the food drive. The class that manages to accumulate the most boxes, bags and cans will receive a barbecue party, catered by the FBLAo in the spring, said FBLA advisor Greg Mooney. A donation box will be available at home basketball games until Christmas vacation. People who want to donate food can bring it to the high school office; people who want to donate to a specific class should designate it at that time. The food is distributed to needy families in the Pateros area. Mooney said.

Brewster School to host Knowledge Bowl Next Monday afiernoon students from nine schools will assemble in Brewster for demanding, intense competition. However, it won't be |basketball orwresfling tournament, track or tennis or volleyball--or any sport. Knowledge Bowl is a test of the mind; what students know, how fast they can remember it and answer questions under pressure. One of the first Knowledge Bowl matches of the . season will be held Monday, December 7 at Brewster High School, beginning at 3:30 p.m. Students from Oroviile, Manson, Pateros, am|k, Chelan, Tonasket, Okanogan, Liberty Bell (Me|how Valley) and Brewster are scheduled to compete. Competition begins with a written test, followed by two rounds of oral questions. A maximum of six team members can compete in the written round, while three students compete in each oral round. While the written round has a time limit, the oral rounds require real speed in finding the answer and answering the question. "They (the competitions) demand a lot of knowledge, and they demand the ability to think quickly and calculate quickly," said Wes Blalock, Brewster team advisor. While the percept ion that Knowledge Bowl is only for Astudents is untrue, partic i pants do need to "know someth in g about a lot of different subjects. A Knowledge Bowl veteran himself, Blalock said the competitors could be asked about practically any subject. "Anything, from theology to mathematics, science--politics,ancient civilizations, literature," BIMock said. Sometimes an oral or written round can emphasize one or two subjects. but in every competition the questions could cover practicallyanything. "Pick a subject, and it may not be so obscure ,F.W.C.

"You've go to in there and expect anything." This does not, however, require an elaborate schedule of extra studies, at least in Blaiock's opinion. "1 tell them to pick their favorite subject and study it." That was the method followed by the teenage Wes B lalock; he stuck with subjects thai interested him, and liked Knowledge Bowl. He said he wants his team members to like it, too. Brewster's 1998-99 Knowledge Bowl team includes seniorsErik Milton and Luke Joyner and juniors Danielle Michel, LyndsayWebsterand Michael Fischer. Milton and Michel return from last year. High school students who are interested in joining can contact Blalock for more information. The match is open to the public.
