It would even be a good thing to have one of them photographed by NBC, and then to have the life emerging from one of them interviewed by live tele- cast by, say, Huntley and Brinkly. We say it would be a good thing because maybe then, and only then, wduld man come to believe in his own fallibility, come to believe that there is a Power greater than man himself. Easter is a good time, to think about that. It is a good time to come to grips with man's greatest weakness: his doubt about God, his conceit thinking that something isn't, simply because he can't : fully understand it, his lack of faith, c " At this very moment a great theologi al controversy is raging over the existence and ,nature of God. To the extent : : that the controversy has restirred and reawakened an inter- in religion, the controversy is good. But the principal criticism we would like to make of it to date is that most of those who are currently writing and speaking about it, don't understand it, and are trying to put words and thoughts and meanings into the mouths of Tillich and Barth and Boa hotter and others that a close examination of the works Of these theologians does not justify. There is one thing of which the author of this editorial Senator Robert Byrd and advised htya: was study to establish a National Wild Rivers System and that the Caca- pon and Shenandoah Rivers were under study for designation as Wild Rivers. So far as the public was con- cerned this appears to have been a well kept secret, for not until the publication of the Potomac Interim Report did the property owners have notice that legislat- ion was contemplated involving condemnation of their property Further, although due notice and hearings had been provided on Lhe five western rivers, no similar benefits had been bestowed upon the public or property owners interested in these two eastern rivers. In conclusion, it is noted that the amendment to include the Shenandoah and Cacapon Rivers offered by Senator Robert Byrd was based upon a report by offi- cials Of the Department of Inter. ior and was, in addition, made at the request of this Department Very truly yours, Clifford Umscheid, Secretary West Virginia Eastern Panhandle Land and River Protective Associ ation Route 1 HedgesviUe, W.

Dear Max: I would request that you and every other tax payer of the county take time to drive into the parking lot behind the Char- les Town Senior High School. There you will encounter the most elaborate c a r obstacle course ever devised outside the United States Army Corps of Engineers. About one hundred white posts, three feet high and four inches in length and width, sunk in concrete and arranged in some order are provided as teacher and student parking stab ions. While elementary schools at Leetown, Summit Point, Rippon, Shenandoah Junction and others, are in dire need of repairs and money for some essential equip- ment for which it is reported "funds are not available," the Board ork crews spentcbnsider. able time and money on the above mentioned job. You will but wonder how, snow removal will be carried out-how people will park at ball games and other' school activities: The student parking problem still exists, a problem that can be simply solved to the advantage of the students and school ad- ministration alike. (Chas. Town H. 8ch faculty reeo nmendation to the Boaffd 1965), IIcre again the superintenden-t has exhibited lack of vision and initiative in solving a student parking-driving problem which at all county high schools needs im- mediate attention. Very truly yours, William J, Brown ive Association shares the con. corn of many with the problem of river pollution and clean water supply. We are also concerned, in a general way, with the nationwide expanded use of the doctrine of eminent domain for the purpose of condemning and seizing the property of private citizens for ubiie pleasure. Specifically, we are alarmed over the inclusion of the Shenan- doah and Cacapon Rivers of West Virginia in the Wiid Rivers Bill, S-1446, passed by the Senate on Jenuary 18, 1966, and the manner in'which these rivers came to be included in said bill. The Potomac Interim Report on January 6, 1966, recommended in- clusion of these rivers in the Wild Rivers Bill. Prior to this date there were no indications to the general public or to the prop- erty owners concerned that these rivers were to be included in any legislation. The Cacapon had earlier been given study status and the Shenandoah was not even mentioned in this regard. Tcelve days later, on January 18, 1966, the subject rivers an& in addltion vested in the Secretary of Agri. culture and the Secretary of nter ior the Dower to condemn and seize title to the lands of private citizens (Sac. 4F, page 13). I sdh. mit that legislation is an unduly brief deliberative period where the property rights of private citi zens are at issue. As stated previously, the man- ner in which these two rivers came to be included in the Wild Rivers Bill of some concern. From correspondence with mem- bers of the Senate and HOuse of Representatives it has been learn ed that as early as the latter part of 1964, two members of the De, ptrtmeat of the, Interior v te l for Guantanamo Bay, Cubs and Bermuda, on my return.
