EDWARD MAX PRICE

CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA

Max, Eddy, Shorty

Whether she did happen to be a forty or not, our pal Maxie from West Virginia retorts on Sunday mornings after a hop "She might not be a forty, but she sho' can dance." His drags are usually quite a bit above the line, though. Academics are fruit to him, and with a cheery smile he's willing to lend a helping hand or two to the fellow who doesn't get this stuff. Instead of boning at night, we find him rooting around in all sorts of peculiar books. Before water polo was discontinued, Maxie used to try to commit suicide, but now he's content with kicking the soccer ball around. He's an all around fellow and a sea daddy to the plebes.
