Every summer at Kennedy High School's basketball camp, the kids play a game called "Beat the Superstar." Coach John Mayberry will pick a youngster to play an imaginary game of one-on-one against one of his heroes. Most of the kids imagine they're playing against NBA stars Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan or Larry Bird. If the kid makes a shot, he scores a point. If he misses, it's two points for the superstar. The first to reach 11 wins.

"Say you're invited to XYZ's place for dinner," says Danny Gould, "and she says, 'I want you here at sharp 8. You know the way?' 'Sure,' you say, 'no problem.' 'Really?' she says. 'It's usually very hard for people to find our place.' 'I'm unique,' you tell her, and you arrive at the stroke of 8. . . ." One of life's less momentous triumphs, no doubt, but it sure beats getting lost and late. Assuming, of course, you use Gould's invention--and follow your own directions.

When Laurie Walters was cast as the third eldest of the Bradford children on the TV series "Eight is Enough," she says, the producers pictured Joannie as something of a wallflower. "I'd brought a book of Walt Whitman poetry to the audition, so that's how they thought of me," she recalled recently. "But when they found out more about me, they turned Joannie into a theater kid." A theater kid indeed, Walters already had a considerable stage background.
