BERRY Wednesday was a special day in ,the life of John H. Berry, undoub- ,tedly the dean of hoSl~tat orderlies at least in ~his area, and ,a moving spirit and general factotum at the Charles Town General Hospital as it marked the com,ple~ion of 40 years of continuous service to the hospital and it's thousands of pat tents who bare entered it's doors. "JOhn", as this colorful and well known hospital attendant ls best known, s.tavted on Ehis 41st year today, bu~ not without a most de- serving reminder from .the hosPi,tal staff ,that they van no~ forget the job he has done so wen and long for the hospital. Mr. JOhn was given a pleasan.t surprise when he was presewted with a gift and then trea,ted to ice cream and cake. John's official title at ~e hospi- tal is and has been for 40 years, orderly. BuG he is now and has' been .for years more ~han Just an orderly. Besides the usual duties which a hospital orderly performs JOhn has done a little hit of ju,st about ever:~thing at the hospi'al except surgery. In his 40 years he 'has served as cook, Janitor, X-ray echnician, ambulance driver and general meSh.ante. During the War years when there was an acute Shortage of help at the old Charles Town Hospital John used to help with all operations and in .em er- gencies he has administered the anesthetics and assisted wi~h child births. At the old Charles Town Hospi,tal, *he served for about ten years as X-Ray technician until a fulltame technician became avail- able. John is the senior member of ~he Oharles Town Hospital staff having been ,there longer than anyone now associated width ,the staff. He has served under eight different hospital superintendents and al.though now ~bout 70 years young he is still as active around the ~hospital .as he was 20 years ago. A native of Page County, Va. John was born near Luray, ~n a small place called Blainsville. His ~ather was Francis Berry and his mo0her the ormer Jennie Crow of 'Madison, Va. John had been work ing for eleven y~ars ,as a chef in ,the Sheil,fonte Hotel in Atlantic City when he came to the Charles Town Hospital. Washington-West Virginia's two United States Sena~tors, Jennings Randolph and Robert C. Byrd, sworn in last week as the 86th Con gress convened, already are listed ~mong the most active co-sponsors of major legisla~tion. It is tradi.tional in the United lion over ,the ne~t four years.

Do Not Print Letters Without Signatures Once again last week as has hap pened frequently in the past, this newspaper received a letter enti- led "Cause of Crime" which could not be printed because it carried only this signature "A Taxpayer".
