John Hough Is Re-Named to Head IRanson Civic Club MRS. JOIIN IIOUGH The Ranson Civic Club for- mally known as the Ranson Car- dettes held their annual election of officers in the old Ranson grade school recently and reelec- ted Mrs. ,John ttough as president for the fourth year. Other officers also remained the same. Mrs. Vesta Jones re- named vice president; Mrs. Kel- ley Lance Jr., secretary; and Mrs. Itarry Jenkins Jr. treasurer. The club can look back with pride at the achievements during ~he past year. A new 50 star nylon flag was presented to the Ranson graded school. The first in Jefferson County. In the spring the club members planted flowers in the Ranson Circle which will be taken over in the spring by the Brownie Troop of Ranson. In November the Club gave a welcome home dinner for Mr. R. J. Funkhouser, which was held in the Ranson Graded School. The dub also sponsored the sale of Christmas trees and candy at Christmas which was a huge success and will plan to make it an annual event. It was decided at the meeting held in September to change the name of the club from the Car- dettes to the Rans0n Civic Club since it's activities were of a Civ ic nature. The club membership express ed appreciation to Bill Magaha, Johnny Mays, Johnny Russell and Morris Hardy, members of the Charles Town ttigh Band for play ing for a dance this past Satur- day night for the young people of the comnmnitly which was held in the old Ranson school un de~ sponsorship of the Ranson Civic Club.

Holly River State Park and thousands of acres of Monon- gahela National Forest provide excellent recreational spots. It ranks among the forenmst counties for fishing and hunting. Timber has been the backbone of Webster's economy for decades, but it also has extensive coal reserves, as yet un- touched. It is the birthplace of such rivers as the Elk, the Little Kanawha, the Gauley, the Holly and Cranberry. The mineral springs at Webster Springs, county seat, reputed to have curative powers, are widely known and until a few decades ago were the center of a thriving health resort. The county was formed in 1860 and named for Daniel Web- ster, famed orator and statesman. In Webster County and throughout West Virginia, the U. S. Brewers Foundation works' constantly to assnre the sale of beer and ale under pleasant, orderly condi- tions. Believing that strict law enforcement serves the best interests of the people, the FounJ:~tion stresses close cooperation with the Armed Forces, law enforce- raent and governing officials in it~ continuing "self- regldation" program. ies, seven and eight ),ears of age; gory on Thursday.
