Yours very truly, Superintendents were formerly these media can ever quite capture and depict life in the thousands and thousands of smaller towns as it is captured and depicted by the small weekly newspaper. Its charm lies in its lack of professional polish. It knows the people whose names appear in its columns, and tempers its handling of their affairs with dignity and discretion It most often knows far more than it cares to print It is most frequently accused of not printing all the facts, and the accusation is true. With what it knows, it could be sensational fifty-two times a year. But. more often than not, it decides against sensationalism in favor of humanism. The Independent and the Grant County Press have ren- dered a priceless service to the communities they serve, in the best traditions of a weekly newspaper, and we are happy to commend them and wish them many, many more years of publication. NEWSPAPERS STAY LONGER A survey completed for the Rockville (Md.) Montgomery County Sentinel revealed that more than 96 per cent of the weekly's readers keep the newspaper in their homes for two days or longer. More than 81 per cent keep it three days or longer More than 84 per cent of the Sentinel's household copies are read by two or more persons per edition, and in 33 per cent of the homes three or more persons read each copy of the 10,900-circulation ABC weekly. Charles Town, W. Va. Jan. 4, 1966 superintendents and supervisors of instruction. Until recently a superintendent was not even re- quired to have a masters degree. These superintendents however are outstanding educators-out standing on the street most of the time, reminiscing about the "good old days," cracking a few jokes and giving a pat on the back. This type of educator has led the W. Va. school system down the path of regression in- stead of progression---down the ~r. Max Brown, Editor Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate (~harles Town, W. Va.

Dandridge STATEMENT I have been engaged in school work for the past 28 years, 15 of which as the principal of the Page-Jackson H. S. of Charles Town, W. Va. This experience has caused me to have a most sincere and lasting interest in the train- ing of the youth of our county to be useful citizens. During my 3 weeks in the hospi tal of the University of Pennsyl- vania in Philadelphia Pa. soon after my retirement June 17, 1965, I concluded after much study that I should seek to con- tinue as an active official in the Jefferson County Educational System. I feel that my 15 years as H. S. Principal together with my prior special graduate study in School Administration and Sup ervision should especially quali- fy me for membership in the Jeff erson County Board of Education. I believe that since the County Superintendent of Jefferson~ Cou- nty in the monthly meetings of the principals discussed f~lly the needs for our schools in general and the goals set forth by the successful H. S. Principals due to their special training and exper- ience that likewise H. S. princi- pals should make good members of the County Boards of Educat- ion. I have always been interested not only in educational work but in the general activities for the good of the county I am the Lay Leader of the Mt. Zion Methodist Church of Charles Town which shows that I am a religious work- er If I am deemed qualified to become a member of the Jeffer- son County Board of Education I will be a sincere worker for the good of all of the people of the County One of my cherished aims for the county is that we shall establish a school that will train our youth in practical vocat tonal work as well as college pre- paratory work. 4"14 South Mildred St. Charles Town, W.
