New Law Has Created Real Problems For Some Veterans Beginning with World War Two, it has been popular practice in Washington for the Congress of the United States to show special preference to veterans of the Armed Ser- vices. One of these perquisites (until only recently) was the right of a veteran honorably discharged from the service and unable to find a job to collect unemployment compensation through his State Employment, Security Service. No more.. Under an act of Congress (apparently passed in conn- IL ection with reduction of the budget), a serviceman who has the option of reenllsting in the service, but opts to be discharged, cannot collect unemployment payments. According to Bill Rich, who heads up the unemployment service for the Eastern Panhandle in Martinsburg, this new rule was retroactive to July I, 1981, although passed by Congress and okayed by President Reagan on August 13, 1981. Rich noted that a ser- viceman who separates operator, or as: from theservice andwhois secondary not eligible for reenlistment dairy farming. can collect unemployment him is more payments.

On Monday, Wilmoth said that additional soil testing and testing of the lime-sulphur pile and surrounding area would have to he done bdore any further action is taken. A National Fisheries Center spokesman has been quoted as saying he's pleased that a hard look is being taken at possibility the lime-sulphur pile may be contaminated with pesticides. The center's water supply is partially fed by a Spring in the area of the county's landfill and the now disrupted lime-sulphur pile. This follows on the heels of a controversy over whether or not sludge, damped by the 3-M Company at the county land- fill, might contain dangerous chemicals. That controversy has been going on since last August, involving 3-M, the fisheries center, private citizens, the State Health Department, the Department of Natural Resources and the Jefferson County Corn-' mission. The dispute there is whether or not tests of the sludge, carried out by 3-M tell the true story. Private sources reportedly are conducting their own tests, as agreed to with the county commission, but their results have been slow in coming.
