6 Special Award To Diana L Carpenter .... LEETOWN - Diana L. Carpenter, a member of the Young Adult Conservation Corps assigned to the National Fisheries Center, was the recent recipient of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Sorvice's Special Achievement Award for her role in the preparation of a complex manuscript while detailed to the Fish Genetics Station at the Leetown aquaculture com- pies. Ms. Carpenter was specifically cited for her initiative and ability in learning operation of a word processing computer and application of techniques that permitted the timely publication of a lengthy fish genetics manual. The Charles Town resident, who has completed two years at Shepherd College, is one of only a few YACC enrollees to be selected for the award. eBmBBOWBBaBOBOBBO, SHANNONDALE Olga Waiters Call 725-6102 Never measure your generosity by what you give but rather by what you receive. In the vein, dear Shannandalians, we can support a most worthwhile project. This is Pancake Day on Saturday, March 13 from 10 AM until- and is sponsored by the Blue Ridge Fire Department at the Blue Ridge Mountain Fire Department Building. They will serve hot cakes, sausage, beverage, etc., for $2.50 for adults and $1.25 for children- all this for the benefit of the Fire Department. Here's a chance to help them and, indirectly, yourselves, in a reasonable, delicious manner.

Vivian McIntoeh and I drove to Henry's restaurant for dinner and then to Shepherd College this week and we were so happy to see a crowded theatre in the Creative Arts Center. The play was Thirteen Clocks by James Thurber. ,It was a whimsical, comic fantasy and was enjoyed by an. The scenery was boldly and colorfully created and the scenic crew managed all changes so that nothing was disturbed in the sequence of the actors' lines. The acting was superior md I think l agree with the author, satirllst and humorist who said, "Unless modern man wanders down these byways oc- casinnally, I don't see how he can hope to preserve his sanity." The Shaanondale Hunting. and Fishing Club is active again and will have its first Shoot of the year, a. Turkey Shoot (20 pound turkey as a prize) on April 17th. More later on .

The Woman's Club is having a Fashion Show at their April meeting with club members as models and fashions from the Op shop. Some of you may remember the Nicely family who onced lived here. Their son, Lt. Clenton Nicely, was recently kiUed in a crash. Some of the folks here noted that a scholarship hind is being set up for an Ohio High School senior athlete in the name of the Lieutanant, and so some folks from here have donated some funds to be sent to that fund. At the Woman's Club meeting this past Thursday, several things worthy of mention came up. Jessie Nowell, our gal in charge of keeping abreast of all ira- , portant legislation, noted that the Tri County area of Jef- ferson, Berkeley and Morgan ranked the highest in juvenile crime. At the present there is much action going on for a facility in Marfinsburg for these culprits. She also told us that the question of re- districting is in progress now and the Dog Lae is still very much in evidence due to the On March 16th there will De fine plays offered by a planning session for the Opera House, now at Woman's Club Bazzar and savings for the rest Mary Badin, Chairman, season. would liae to have folks come Lorraine Ricketts with their sugessions.
