Mrs. Ethel Buzzard Community sBand To( ether To The Tri-State Citizens Band Radio, an outgrowth of the recent "Blizzard of '66," is now incorpor ated, officially organized and ready to provide community ser- vice during any type of ememgen cy. The new organization received it's charter from the Secretary of State of West Virginia Wednes- day, only a short time after the club was organized with Clifton Eugene ttaines of Halltown, as it's first president: Other officers of the club are: Joseph M. Wilson of Charles Town, vice-president; Joseph Rin aldi, of Ranson, secretary; Le- Garde Trussell, also of Ranson, assistant secretary; and Charles A. Slusher of Ranson, treasurer. In addition to the office of presi- dent, Haines was also named as base controller for all operations of the club. Haines said the idea for the club came out of the problems encountered by stranded motor- ists and other persons needing emergency help. During the Feb- ruary bizzard many individuals in Jefferson county who owned Citizens Band Radio sets, used their CB mobile radios in various rescue and highway clearing oper ations, and following the blizzard Haines said he and others in the county decided to band together into an organization which could and would provide an emergency communications system via CB radio for Jefferson County and The League of Women Voters! of Jefferson County (Provisions) will hold its annual business meeting on March 22 at the Civic Center Auditorium. The business portion of the meeting will begin at 7:15 p. m. At this time, officers will be elected, the budget will be acted upon, and a new item of local study will be selected. Mem- bers are asked to refer to their bulletins for the list of nominees, the proposed budget, and the Board's recommendations con- cerning the local item. All mem- bers are urged to attend. The program for the evening will begin at 8 p. m. and the pub- lic is invited to this portion of the meeting. This will be a dis- the area During the recent blizzard many of the members of this club work ed with state road crews in spott- ing highways which needed prior ity in being opened and cleaned; they helped to direct rescue oper- ations in cases of stranded motor isis and they also provided a radio Communications link be- tween the various police and fire department agencies in Jefferson County. Today this good sumaritan group has a membership of 104 persons made up of persons 18 years of age and up who have a CB license from the Federal Gov- ernment and who have their own radios. The club has pledged to help local and state governments and law enforcements agencies in the area. Haines said the club has also reached an agreement with the Charles Town Municipal police department and also with the West Virginia State Police in Charles Town for the installation of a CB radio in their headquart- ers for emergency coordination. The club has also received approval from the police depart- ments in Martinsburg and Char- les Town for the same channel use during emergencies. Techni- cal advisor for the club is Paul Karockhoff, first lieutenant in the Air National Guard in Mar- tinsburg.

Specialists To Discuss Corn Yield Practices March 14 At Bardane If you are interested in meth- ods and practices used to secure top corn yields, March 14th is a date to mark on your calendar. On this date Dr. Olsen and Dr. Patterson, Crops and Soil Spec- ialists at ~West Virginia Univer- sity, will be at Bardane Commu- nity Center at 7:45 P. M. to dis- :cuss with farmers of Berkeley and Jefferson County methods and practices used by farmers to secure high corn yields. The County Extension crop Committee has suggested this activity for this year. Committee members are Elmer Vickers, Leo Widmyer, Cooper McQuilkin Rich ard Dailey, T. L. Magaha and George L. Cole. Yesterday top corn yields are todays averages. Corn production in the two county area is a one million dol- lar a year business. The 1960 farm census indicates 33o/o of corn acreage is grown without any commercial fertilizer. If corn yields can be upped 10 o/o this would add $100,000.00 additional gross farm income to the two county area. Mr. Charles Riley, of Harpers Ferry, is a patient in Charles Town 'Hospital.
