20 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 1978 ... and don't forget togethers. One morning, Marilyn Pinson got some of us "girls" rounded up at her home to play Password. Not being particularly game oriented 1 went with not too much en- thusiasm, but I must honestly admit that it was really a lot of fun and we all bad a lot of laughs. One evening, Dave Hickson gathered a few of us at his home. It was fun to walk in the snow in the moonlight. Of course the Bell's, LaMotte's and I only had a short distance to go but the Gault's hiked up from their place and the Pinson's made it in their little foreign car. The next night the Craghead's barbecued some chicken and in order for us to get there Bill bad to run shuttle with his four wheel drive while Lil waited at home and tended the stove. He had to make several trips and at evening's end he bad it to do all over again to get everyone back home, but we all enjoyed and appreciated. Ruthie and Bill VanVleck are very proud of their son, Dr. Richard W. VanVleck, who has just recently been promoted to Managing Director of Mead Merchants in Dayton, Ohio. This past Sunday Bette Gault entertained with a party at their McLean residence in honor of George's retirement. The theme was Hawaiian - live music, dancing, entertainment and a very attractive buffet. Those of us who went from BRA were awfully glad we braved the bad roads. Happy Retirement, George. May it be a long and super great one. Lastly and sadly, we all extend our sympathy to Gladys Gooch who lost her mother this past week. 23 Pints-Blood Given At Jeffmon High's Mini Bloodmobile Visit The Jefferson County Chapter of Red Cross and the students of Jefferson High School sponsored a mini-bloodmobile at Jefferson High School on January 10, with 23 pints of blood being collected.

My daughter was born here, attended school here through graduation. Is she a foreigner?" This question has been raised several times during the holidays. One of the delights I have with Christmas cards is beth in-state and out-of-state. Regardless, they liked Jefferson County. Marriage took many to other locations and they all like to hold on to ties in Jefferson. It is surprising to know the number of former residents who continue to subscribe to the Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate. the Spirit had run out. It is always good to hear these references to the days of Lowery, Eismon and Moler. One boy 'man' reminded me of the time, as principal, I paddled twenty boys for taking ad- vantage of two smaller defen- seless lads. Today, this would be twenty years behind bars. Jefferson County has changed and at the same time there are many of the "old families" still here, on the same farms, in the same houses and in the same businesses. There is a pride and a heritage when this generation retirement and retirement homes, estates and locations. At Christmas dinner my nephew from Maryland wanted to know if he could buy several hundred acres of mountain land cheap. There should be no such thing as a foreigner of long standing in our county nor should we draw up sides representing "natives" and "newcomers". The best way to become a native is to get in another location and look back. Jefferson countians are all who have roots whether new or long penetration in local soil. Let's I keep in touch.

In those good old days, as prin- cipal, I was privileged to recruit teachers for the faculty and many came from outside Jef- ferson County. Teachers from Glenville College usually came from the central and low-income portions of West Virginia. Teachers from Shepherd College and Concord College were from Persons living in Philadelphia, the far west and the great north wrote that they keep up to "goings-on in West Virginia" through this Wild Wonderful West Virginia column.
