Mrs. Walper, nee Anna Humrichouse, and her husband who are residents of ' the Shepherdstown area of Jefferson County, were joined in matrimony on that day in 1910 at the Methodist Church at Molers Crossroads. At that time Mrs. Walper was a 15 year old student at Shepherd College and Mr. Walper then 20 years old, was employed as a postal clerk in the Sheph- erdstown ,Post Office. The Walpers resided in Shepherdstown until 1918 and then moved to Maryland in 1925. In 1929 they moved to New York only to return to Shepherdstown in 1959 where they built a house at Molers Crossroads. During these periods Mr. Walper held a variety of diverse and ein- teresting positions. These included positions with both the Maryland and New York State Police Departments, Postal Clerk, Foreman for Western Union Telegraph Company and as manager of Reed Motors. Mr. Walper asserts that he is now the only living first RFD Carrier for the Postal Service. Mr. Walper wm born on June 11, 1890, and Mrs. Walper on May 31, 1895. He still remembers vividly events at the turn of the century when he reports life was much less hectic than now and the emphasis was on the simple things of life and not the hustle and bustle of our modern environment. People had very little then but seemed to be much more content in their lives when the thrust was on the basic social unit in the country - family. The Walpers had four children, three children now deceased and a daughter Mrs. Nellie Gelson who now lives in Hecksville, N.Y.In addition the Walpers number 3 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren among their descendants. Mr. Walper was an avid sports enthusiast in virtually every area of the Sports spectrum with particular interest in Horse Racing. Not undaunted he accepted the challenge of the airplane in 1928 and completed Pilot Training to include his solo flight. Mrs. Walper devoted her life to the duties of a caring wife and mother. The Walpers celebrated their Anniversary in the restful surroundings of their current residence, Jef- fersonian Manor Nursing Home. Mrs. Walper's physical condition is extremely fragile and they share the same room which permits Mr. Walper to continue the warm at- tentiveness of the 71 years that have bound them together. The advancing years have taken their toll but they remain a devoted couple, content in the twilight of their lives and firmly rooted in the love that has endured throughout ther marrzige. Their marriage remains a beacon of stability and permanence in an age when so often the marital vows seem transient in so many cases. In the Walpers case it was "for better or for worse, for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health until death do us part" and they have lived tlmse words with nobility.

"Consumer Competency" Wizard Clipp Homemaker's Meet Topic "consumer Competency" was the topic for the Wizard Clipp Extension Homemakers Club when it gathered on Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Thomas Magaha and Miss Dorothy Dailey for their first meeting for the New Year. There were nine members present. Mrs. Magaha led the devotions and she used as her theme, "A New Year." She used Matthew 7, 13 and 14 as her scripture, then gave a reading on "Beginning a New Year" closing with prayer. Mrs. Larry Ring gave the lesson for the afternoon and her topic was "Consumer Competency." Consumer rights and responsibilities represent a delicate balance between seller care and consumer precaution. She stressed the right to be in- formed. In excerising their right to be informed, a con- sumer need to consider a wide variety of products and ser- vice infrmation. Here are some ways sellers can help answer questions. When buying, consider the cost of the future repair, the energy cost of using the product, product durability, specific product attributes which are important to them. Consumers have a right to choose. So, they may well ask themselves, is my brand loyalty misplaced or should I try lower-priced generic? Also, the right to be heard is most often expressed by consumers who have been disappointed by particular products. If the manufacturer or seller fails to remedy the problem, they may complain to the Better Business Bureau and to government agencies. Many good tips were given the homemakers on the products one buys. Mrs. Larry Ring presided over the business meeting. Routine reports along with committee reports were given. Miss Dorothy Dailey read a Thank You note from the Summit Point Busy Bee 4- H Club, expressing thanks for the contribution which was used for their Christmas gift boxes made by the children. Also, they voted to make a contribution to the Citizens Fire Company. Mrs. Ring passed out the Newsletter of the Berkeley County Citizens for Juvenile Justice January 1982.
