In fact, his latest stroke [ record album, entitled "Pagel". for tl@A ncl praise]of success came only recently ] He has also organized his own :HUDIF record label, entitled "Hugo's Music", for the purpose of presenting his own kind of sound style, and he has also developed his own musical group to develop more completely his own music. All during his young life on the farm near Leetown where he was born, August 23, 1937, and while he and his parents were] later in the employee of the late i Raymond J. Funkhouser at Claymont, Nathan stuck with hill-billy music as he strummed his guitar. But once, through the former Page Jackson High School, Nathan set out for the city to make his own way in life. And it was while he was working as a gas station attendant in Washington, D.C., in 1959, that Nathan became sold on "jazz" music. He was driving one night in his car in the area of 14th and T Streets in Northwest Washington when he heard the sounds of jazz pouring forth from a club. He stopped, went in, and from then on he made many visits to that spot just to hear the sounds of the jazz music which was being played there. Many times he talked with the musicians, and found he was able to relate to them, and their kind of music. And within a short time he was replacing his hill- billy strumming with the rhyth- m-andluos sound and with jazz, as he learned more about music. He studied and practiced constantly at his home. He listened to records of the jazz greats and played them over and over. He listened, experimented and practiced on his guitar until he could play those numbers himself, Then his first big break came in 1960 when he worked his first "jazz gig". He continued to I study, work and practice, and ]then in 1965, he joined organist ]Jimmy Smith, and it was this [move that catapulted Nathan l I II II I I TOWN, W. VA.

GENERAL TELEPHONE COMPANY OF THE SOUTHEAST A CORPORATION March 9-2t into the professional world of jazz He performed at the Hollywood Bowl, in California, during the second week after he joined the Jimmy Smith organization. In 1969, Nathan left Smith's organization and joined singer Roberta Flack. He spent nearly all of his off-time, or rest time, on the road with flutist Herbie Mann. Two years later, at the time when Tony Williams left Miles Davis to form his own group, Page was asked to join Williams' Lifetime Band, along with Sam Rivers and Roy Ayers Then Doug Cam invited Nathan to join his group. And out of this union came the albums, "Revelations" and "Adam's Apple" in 1974. It was at this point that Nathan decided to form his own group to develop more completely his own style of music. His quartet worked mostly in the area of jazz clubs and did some road work Page has toured Japan, Canada and a number of major American cities across the It was upon his return from Europe that Nathan decided to produce his own record "Pagel", and organize his own recording label. This move allows him to choose the music, decide on length of the tunes and make decisions concerning the saleability of the albums. The Nathan Page quartet includes some of the area's most com- petent musiciam. For instance, Steve Novosel plays bass, Mike Smith and Tony Green play drums, and Charles Covington plays piano. Page has received excellent reviews from noted jazz critics, such as Ira Sabin, publisher of Radio Free Jazz and Bill Ben- nett, jazz critic for the Washington Star newspaper, who in writing about "Pager' in the Washington Connection section of Radio Free Jazz, "from the midst of this chaotic, amplified roar comes a quietly mature voice, a subtle blend of relaxed swing, harmonic character, and melodic ingenuity : this voice belongs to county with saxophonist Sonny : Nathan Page.

The Jefferson Memorial Hospital Auxiliary went out of the county to obtain a store to put on a fashion show. This seems very detrimental to the goodwill of the auxiliary and its working relationship with the community. We have been in- volved in fashion shows where several stores worked very well together and the people have come away pleased.
