West Virginia's Oldest Newspaper PRICE 10 CENTS r i Winner Of DSA Honor DONALD CLENDENING Although he has been most act- ive in a number of fields, work- ing for civic and community im- provement and development for several years, the year 1965, proved to be one of the busiest, if+ not the busiest, for Donald Clen-+ dening, husband of Alice Ann (Edwards) Clendening, of North Mildred Street. Charles Town. = The need for revision of the West Virginia Constitution was strongly emphasized Wednesday night by Dean Paul L. Selby, Jr., of the West Virginia University College of Law, in addressing a- bout 100 persons attending the 13th annual Distinguished Ser- vice Award dinner held in the Citizen's Fire Hall in Charles Town. Dean Selby shared the spotlight with Donald Clendening, who was named by the Jaycees as the most outstanding young man of Jefferson County in 1965. Clen. dening, an employee of the 3-M plant at Middleway and a resident of Charles Town, was picked for the honor over eight other DSA nominees. Presentation of the award to Clendening was made by Kenneth Anders. Dean Selby opened his re. marks by commending the Junior Chamber of Commerce on their efforts in promoting community service and development projects. Then he moved into the field of state and federal government, he declared the people of West Vir- ginia have abdicated the running of their community and county governmental affairs to state and federal officials. The speaker threw out a chal. lenge to the Jaycees and others present to make people think a- of this Second Congression- as a navigator for the U. S.
