Va. ]Spirit.Advm:ate To Publish ' I Edition on 0 " Shenandoah Down I I Because of the magnitude of Jefferson .County s newest and most modern business operalion---the Shen- andoah Downs race track--which is to be formally dedi- cated and put into operation May 1, work was started last week on a special souvenir section of the Spirit of Jefferson- Advocate to be delivered along with a regu- lar issue of the newspaper prior to the opening of the new $:1,000,000 race course. This special edition will tell in picture and words the story of the planning, construction and future opera.- tional plans of the track. This is the largest and most comprehensive business construction project to take place in Jefferson county in years. And because possibly only a limited few know and realize the tremendous amount of planning, work and money which has gone into a project which will attract thous, ands of people into the county each year, this newspaper feels that special recognition should be given to completion and opening. A host of special guests are expected to be on hand for the track's opening including West Virginia's Gover- nor, Cecil H. Underwood, and other high state officials. All busine es and others who have had a part in the track's planning and cconstruction, or who will have a part in it's operations, are being invited to participate in this special edition through either congratulatory and commercial advertisements. Since considerable time is required to plan and print this special edition, all advertising must be in this office by not later than April 18. Additional information on this special edi- tion may be obtained by writing or calling this news- paper in Charles Town at 222.
