6 Library Offers Karate Program The Old Charles Town Library will vary its Saturday matinee filmstrip program with a special demonstration of Okinawan Karate on March 2, at 2:00 p.m. in the auditorium. Mr. Robert Zingg and several of his students will demonstrate not only skills involved in using the different karate weapons such as the bo or staff, and nunchaku, but also the breaking of boards and bricks. Karate is a Japanese word meaning "empty hands." The term and the method of self-defense date from the 14th and 15th centuries when personal weapons were banned by the goven- ment. Different styles developed over the years, with the Okinawan school becoming increasingly popular until it was even included as physical educa- tion in Japanese schools. In spite of the popularity of the spec- tacular effects such as breaking boards with bare hands and feet, karate is an excellent all-around sport and an intense discipline in which respect for ones opponents is stressed. There is no admission charge for the program, and everyone is welcome. For more information call the Library, 725-2208, or Mr. Zingg, 725-3639.

Only about a hours drive from the Capital Beltway, the Innkeepers Gretchen and her son, Sean and daughter Tania, will always be at hand to answer any questions, suggest local sites of historic interest and or share knowledge of country auctions and an- tique shops, and Mrs. Carroll says her experience in living in Africa, Asia and Europe promises a varied and in-' teresting cuisine.
