In this connection Jefferson County is doing about all it can at the moment, except for the fact that an equalization of property values is badly needed. Until this is done and our assess- ed values are adjusted according to requirements for receiving our share of state aid, we are going to be short of adequate money for our public schools. Colleges Get Increase Per State College there was pro vided in the budget an increase in pay for instructors, and Vhrough an increase in student fees of $50 'per semester there has been set up a building fund w~hich will, on a long term basis, enable the state colleges to plan and build addit- ional buildings. Two-thirds of this fee increase will go into the build ing fund and One-third into Gen- eral Revenue, .where the colleges will ghare in the available addit- ional money. In connection with college build ings, I am glad to say that Shep- herd is in process of getting a new women's dormitory and cafeteria. We managed to squeeze a $66.000 ftem into the budget for equip- ment for the building, a federal re quiremen~t upon which hinged fed eral approval of a loan they will grant for a good portion of the money for the building. This ad- ditional, together with the new athletic $ield w'hic~ is nearing completion, will definitely give Shepherd a greatly improved phy- sical set-up and we will have one of the best equipped state colleges in this section of the country. Among the 'bills passed, ! think ,the following will be of most inter- est to Jefferson County residents: 8ales of property for non-pay- men,t of taxes may be conducted inside or outside .the door of the courVhouse.

OPEN FRIDAY NIGHTS Special Election From Page One ,they be brought within the town's corporate limits. Controversy Develops WVhin recent weeks a real con- troversy has developed on the is- sue. And t,his week with the elec- tion near at hand, members of the Charles Tow[z Council are moving ~o enllghted~ng 'those opposing the plan on the advantages it of- fers to them. One such move was made Mon- day night when a public meeting was held for the purpose of ex- plaining the areas included in the proposed boundary extensions, the savings in money and the extra conveniences and protections which Council says will come ,to those residing in, or owning prop erty in these areas should they come ~nto the corporate limits of the town. At this informal discuss ion which was attended ',by both those favoring and those opopsing the boundary extensions, many questions were asked regarding say ings on insurance with a reduction in rates which Councilmen say v˘ill come with adding of more fire hydran,ts, water service, and police protection for the areas. The City FaVhers also feel the water sy- stem which the municipality of Charles Town is now negotiating ~o purchase, can and will, be ex- tended into these outlying areas, along wi,th instalaltion of street lights. The answer .to two of the fore- most questions which voters, both wi*thin the town's limits and those .in the outlying areas, have been asking frequently in recent weeks ,came Vhis week from the West Vir giniu Rating Bureau in a letter to Charles Town Mayor Nicholas Car son, The question which has been uppermost in the minds of the people already residing within the ,town limits has been "What chan ge in classification, if any, will the proposed boundary lines exten- sions have upon the present class- iftcetion the city now holds. C. E. McGinley, inspector for the Bur- eau reports to Mayor Carson that the proposed changes will not change the classifica~tion .the city now enjoys, providing the water distribution system is improved. Councilmen point ou,t that many improvements to the water system have already been made and plans are being drawn to make other extensive improve- ments. The other top question, and one which is being asked mostly by those living in the outlying areas b~ing considered for incorporation into the town, is-W'hat rate class ffication will cover the new areas if brouuht in,to Charles Town. Mr. P,,alses the salaries of S~ate Pol- 4YlcGinley stat~s that all dwellings icemen $50 a monVh, in that area that are within 1,000 Revised workmer~ compenswtion feet of a fire hydrant that will pro payments to bring new benefi,ts duce sufficent volumes and press- totaling about $600,000 annually, ures for fire protection will receive Gave Justices of t~he Peace jur the same elassigication as the city.
