In a society which has come to depend more and more on federal and local governments, is it still possible for the in- dividual to solve problems? The New York Times re- cently reported a situation which gives possible an- swers to those questions. In an account about a New Lebanon, New York, high school, a very encouraging and heart-warming story was told. The rural and largely middle-class school district faced an austere budget and difficult admin- istrative problems in 1971, following the defeat of a proposed school bond. The principal of the combined junior and senior high school was informed that the situation would mean no sports, no library books, and no lunch program. Be- cause of the requirement for matching funds, it also would mean a cut-off of the federal school lunch subsidy. Fortunately, tor both the students and the school, the young principal, Gerald L. Blair, saw this unex- pected cut-back as an op- portunity. He decided to let the youngsters them- selves solve the school lunch program. He saw this problem as an opportunity for "a unique and reward- ing experience." He and a fellow teacher each put up $200 as seed money to begin an experi- i )receded her in death in 1958. Three sisters and five brothers also preceded her in death. MISS KATIE LITTLE'ION Miss Katie Littleton, 67, of Charles Town, died Sunday, March 12, at the State Hospital in Huntington, W. Va., and funeral services were held Wednesday at 2 p.m. from the Melvin T. Strider Colonial Funeral Home in Ranson. The Rev.

Littleton, Winchester, Va. JENS O. JENSEN Mr. and Mrs. Roger E. Clipp, of East Liberty Street, Charles Town, returned Sunday from Mount Holly, New Jersey, where they attended the funeral of Mr. Jens O.

HARPERS FERRY BOLIVAR Mr. Reid Geronimo There will be a bake sale on March 25 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Harpers Ferry-Bolivar Friendship Fire Hall, sponsored by the Pollyanna Sunday School Class of Bolivar U.M. Church. Mr. and Mrs. Albert Elsea spent the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. William Lance and children in Woodstock, Va. I looked out the bedroom window Sunday morning and saw four Robins in the yard. I am always glad to see them come back for I think it is a sign of Spring. I told a friend about it and she said it had made her day. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Harris from Baltimore, Md., visited Mrs. Ella Zombro on Sunday. Visitors with Mr. and Mrs. H. i R. Crock were Mr. and Mrs. Bill ment in self-reliance. The students were recruited to plan, cook, and serve lunches. Prices were set by the students: low enough to be acceptable to most, but high enough to pro- vide a very slight profit for reinvestment in the pro- gram. Today, the experi- ment is a successful edu- cational program. Students who cannot af- ford to buy lunch, or who would rather use their money in some other way, can work for their meals. The young people who run the program are given aca- demic credit for their work in a course called "Com- mercial Cooking." They are learning business proce- dures, self-discipline, and problem-solving. They are --and they should be-- proud of what they have accomplished. They have more than repaid the trust and faith of their principal and teacher. In addition, they quickly repaid the dol- lars loaned to start the program, and have built a working inventory of equip- ment and foodstuffs. Not every school district would want to use this program for school lunches. However, the basic concept of encouraging young peo- ple to provide a needed service to themselves and their fellow students through hard work and initiative is a good one, and the success of this pro- gram provides food for thought for all of us. i Isherwood and daughter, Mr. Doug Stroupo of Gerardstown Mr. and Mrs. Robert Linton and children, and Mr. and Mrs. John Milton and family of Orchard Hills. Mr. Reid Geronimo and Mr. L. B. Kenton visited Mr. and Mrs. Mbert Elsea Sunday. We are glad to hear Mrs. Gilbert Smartweed is getting along nicely after breaking her foot.

I Mr. Franklin Jones has  returned home after being a patient in John Hopkins Hospital. Mrs. Janet Wilt is out and getting along nicely after having a back injury.
