20 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1978 Diaey Of Anne Frank Will Open Feb. 16 At / Old Opera House One of the modern theatre's greatest successes has been cast by the Old Opera House. This is "The Diary of Anne Frank", the dramatization by Frances and Albert Hackett of a teen-age Jewish girl's day-to-day record of two years in hiding from the Nazis with her parents and a neighboring family, in war-time Holland. The play ran for 90 weeks on Broadway and won every possible honor, including the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics' Award. Under the direction of Robert Angel it will be performed at the Opera House in Charles Town for four showings beginning February 16. The diary was written by Anne Frank to chronicle the days of seclusion in an Amsterdam attic that began in July of 1942, when she was just 13 to avoid Nazi arrest and the horrors of a concentration camp. Over the course of two years she made entries vividly clu'onicling the problems, the courage, the quarrels, the discomforts of the eight people cooped up in the cramped loft, existing on inadequate quantities of food smuggled to them by friendly Gentiles out of their spare rations. It was not, however, the diary's sharp portrayal of just another chapter of war-time misery, that made it a Best Seller when it was published first in English in 1952, and a great hit when it was turned in 1955 into the play that is now being presented here. What seized the world's imagination was the diary's bubbling, poignant self-portrait of a girl PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF WEST VIRG|NIA CHARLESTON Entered by the PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF WEST VIRGINIA, at the Capitol in the City of Charleston on the 4th day of January, 1978.

A Copy Teste: Freeda P. Jones Acting Secretary Feb. 2-2t AUXILIARY STORAGE SHED, GARAGE, AT RAMEY HOME COLLAPSES One of the costly casualties of the snow and sleet which covered Jefferson County during the period of Friday, January 13 and Saturday, January 21, was a large combination garage and auxiliary storage building, belonging to Roger Ramey and located in a wooded area not far from his home on U.S. Route 340, west of Charles Town. The 30 by 70 foot structure, which covered some 21,000 square feet of floor space, just completely crumpled about 9 p.m. Monday night under the extensive weight of the 15 inches of snow which fell over Jefferson County during the nine-day period. Mrs. Barbara Ramey just happened to look out a side window at the Ramey home about 9 p.m. and she could not see i who, with unconscious gallantry, refused to be robbed of the ad- venture of adolescence, a girl who went right on having the usual joys and pains of growing up even in a.miserable hide-out, with a doom hanging over her. Among her entries are such normal ones, unconnected with a fear of capture by brutal enemies as "Mum my sometimes treats me just like a baby which I can't bear" puts a good many only too seriously overshadowed by fear, such as I m very afraid that we shall be discovered and shot". Despite the known fact that the young girl eventually was captured and died in a Nazi concentration camp, just three weeks before the camp was liberated by British armies, the play based faithfully on her diary has always been greeted with laughter as well as ap- plause. RANSON Mrs. Floyd $imons rs. Floyd Simuns returned home Friday afternoon from the Winchester hospital, where she had been a surgical patient for 17 days. She wants to thank all of her friends and relatives for the cards and flowers, and especially her pastor, Rev. Samuel Miller. Visitors at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Simons and Robert over the weekend were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Fischer, of Inwood East; Mrs. Nora Stewart, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Simons and son Mike, from High Street; Mr. and Mrs. Avis Grim of Charles Town; Mrs. Melvin Snyder and Richard Gessford. Mrs. Simons is improving and hopes to be writing the news soon. POSTPONED SALE SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1 i, 1978.10 A.M. HOUSEHOLD FURNISHINGS 300 So. CHurch St., Charles Town, W. Va.

The building was constructed about a year ago for use as a garage and as an area for storage of some household furnishings from Ramey's store in downtown Charles Town. The building had been constructed so as to fit in with the Ramey home and the landscape surrounding it. Roger said the loss by the collapse of the building would run about $30,000, which included the building, damages to a car being kept in a part of the garage and some household furnishings. The loss is partially covered by insurance, Ramey stated.
