They say the Shenandoah River was not includ ed in the Potomac River Water- shed Interim report when it was finalized last year, but has been added since them. And the report bears out their claim. Criticism in the form of both on and off-the-record comments indicates there is a general feel- ing among the river residents This high honor was Jusl another in a series of them which this heifer has won this Fall in a host of showings in some of the top cattle shows in the nation. "Miss BF" was honored in Oct ober as the champion female at the Kentucky "Blue Grass," show held in Louisville, Ky. The heifer was also named champion at the Eastern National at Timonimum.

S. Navy person nel caught in Charles Town and Jefferson County during the big snowstorm. Mayor Carson was recently pre sented a certificate of citation by Chief Petty Officer E. E. Carter, of Martinsburg, on behalf of Lt. Comdr. R. R. Wright, acting corn manding officer of the U. S. Navy Recruiting Station in Washington D.C. The citation stated that on be- half of the U. S. Recruiting Ser- vice, in recognition of outstand- ing service to the Navy Recruit- ing Service the certificate of appr eciation is presented to Mayor Carson for the unselfish public service which he and the staff of his New Central Restaurant in Charles Town and the citizens of Charles Town, extended to ser- vicemen marooned in the Charles Town area during the February blizzard. The citation further states that the lodging accommodations in the City Council Room, and the meals afforded these service men sustained them an immeasurably facilitated their return to their stations of duty. And I feel that this exercise of your office as Mayor of Charles Town and as a citizen and businessman, reflects intrinsic character of not only the people of Charles Town, but also yourself, and is a most tangi. ble evidence of fellowship and goodwill toward men", Comdr. Wright wrote on the citation cer tificate.
