IOTOMAC From Page 1 The plan issued by the com- mission supersedes the previously announced Potomac Edison plan that was filed with the West Virginia PSC last year. With Allegheny Power System dependent on coal for 95 percent of its power generation, and with no prospect in sight for an early end to the miners' strike -- now the longest in the nation's history -- utility company of- ficials are becoming in- creasingly alarmed about the electric power situation. J. M.

Learning-by'doing to understand and work effectively with young people are the most challenging aspects of being a teen 4-H leader. The national 4-H leadership program, supported by Reader's Digest and conducted by the Cooperative Extension Service. encourages youth to develop leadership skills through a variety of practical activities. 4-H Program Builds Leaders CHICAGO-There are five keys to successful leadership, says an extension specialist in economic development. A good leader believes in people, encourages them and gives them responsibility, says Robert Coppedge of New Mexico State University. The leader also acts as a talent scout and develops a positive attitude toward getting things done. Anyone who is willing to tackle a job that requires co- operating with others can learn to be an effective leader, Coppedge adds. Because good leaders are made-not born-the national 4-H leadership program, sup- ported by Reader's Digest, stimulates young people to become leaders through a variety of learn-by-doing activities. These activities help turn girls and boys 9-19 into the creative, inspiring in- dividuals that others just nat- urally want to follow. As a first step, 4-H mem- bers gain self-confidence by becoming experts at some- thing, whether it's baking"a cake, fixing a bike or playing a game. Then. they share their expertise with others through demonstrations, speeches and exhibits. Soon they are servlng on com- mittees and holding offices in their 4-H clubs, Or, as junior and teen leaders they are as- sisting younger 4-H'ers with their projects. Finally, leadership skills learned in 4-H are carried over into the larger com- munity. Nine national 4-H leadership winners reported activities that ranged from spearheading local charity drives to organizing leader- ship conferences for inner city teens to chairing a coun- ty youth committee for a congressional candidate. Each national wmner re- ceived a $1,000 scholarship donated by Reader's Digest. The high ranking girl and boy won silver trays presented in the name of President Jimmy Carter. Other recognition for pro- gram members includes an expense-paid trip to National 4-H Congress in Chicago for one 4-H member per state, and up to four medals of honor in each county. Winners are chosen by the Cooperative Extension Serv- ice, which conducts the 4-H program, and awards are ar- ranged by National 4-H Council. County extension agents information. Lie down and be counted. Pres=denl J*mmy Carter s*gned up 51 limes In America, 3% of the people give 100% of all the blood that's freely donated. Which means that if only 1% more people--maybe you-- became donors, it would add over thirty percent more blood to America's voluntary blood- stream. Think of it! But forget arithmetic. Just concentrate on one word. The word is Easy. Giving blood is easy. You hardly feel it(in fact, some peo- ple say they feel better physi- cally after a blood donation). And, of course, everybody feels better emotionally. Because it's a great feeling knowing your one easy blood donation has helped up to live other people to live. : ,:y WINNERS IN JEFFERSON HIGH BAND SALES CONTEST Laura Neal is top salesperson in Popcorn Sales Contest.
