Alfriend A good citizen of Charles Town and this community passed amtty last Friday, when John S. Alfriend died at his home I eL South Samuel Street. He was owner and editor of The I , ,irit of Jefferson-Advocate from 1926 until 1934 when he ld the newspapers to the present owner, Mr. Ralph Dorsey. e do not believe there ever was a person who loved his ] one-town of Charles Town, and enjoyed more in talking out it than did John Alfriend. He also loved his Church d'let this part of his life be known by that fact. His church ways came first with him.. John was a likeable person with any fine qualities such as giving leadership to many civic :ntures here and also to churches and religious activities enever called upon. He very seldom ever turned down a quest to speak at a church or religious function anywhere this area. It was our privilege to become associated with ,hn Alfriend while he was editor of this newspaper and our iendship has been very close ever since.. "Shadrack," as knew him, always seemed to enjoy his visits to the news- )er office long after he was no longer connected with the oration.. To his bereaved wife, son and daughters, we :tend our deepest sympathy.. We'll miss "Shadrack," an Ltstanding Christian gentleman, and so will this community. i i ii Cancer Hope  Every year one or more new discoveries is hailed in the press--a holding new hope cancer might soon be brought under control. The latest hope is the discovery by Dr. Judah Folkman of Halyard Medical School and associates of the chemical signal that tells doctors a cancer cell is seeking blood for growth. The discovery is important because unless the cancer cell gets blood for continued growth it must remain dormant. Our Readers Write GRATEFUL FOR EDITORIAL SUPPORT ON BLOOD BANK American Association Of Blood Banks 30 North Michigan Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60602 April 3, 1972 Max Brown, Editor N. George Street Charles Town, W. Va. 25414 Dear Editor: On behalf of the American As- sociation of Blood Banks and others interested in an adequate and safe blood supply for every community, I thanl you for your January editorial supporting Nat- ional Volunteer Blood Donor Months. Continued observance of this, careful planning and the support of public-spirited media such as yours have combined to improve the nation's blood supply import- antly. As you know, the need for a constant blood supply increases. Our Association's nationwide sys- tem of blood banks can deliver rare as well as common types of blood quickly and safely any- where in the county. Through nat ional Clearinghouses, blood donat ed locally can be credited to a patient in a distant city. Such advances are paving the way towards meeting the needs of our nation's hospitals which this year will use about 7,000,000 pints of blood. However, a nationwide corn mitment to volunteer blood bank- ing is the key to maintaining an adequate and safe supply of blood" for all. We are grateful for the interest you have shown in recruiting life saving volunteer blood donors in your community this past Janu- ary. It is our fervent hope that we may again count on your es- sential and valued support during the other critical months and years ahead. Sincerely, William G. Battaile, M. D. President Route 1, Box 12NI Harpers Ferry, W. Va. April 5, 1972 Mr. Max Brown Spirit of Jefferson Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Mr. Brown, This is a letter to inform your readers in the Harpers Ferry area that a new Boy Scout Troop has been formed. All boys between the ages of (11) eleven and (18) eighteen constitutional. While the ultimate decision on that question would have to be made by the courts, I have been informed that care- fully written legislation on this subject could minimize the con- stitutional hazards. In this con- nection, it might be well to re- member that a few years ago there was a large body of legal opinion that felt we could not have two Circuit Court Judges in the Eastern Panhandle withotlt amending the constitution. But the Supreme Court held other- wise. For years the people of Jeffer- son County have felt it unfair that all revenues from racing (except the property tax, which is not a revenue tax) should go to Charleston to the exclusion of Jefferson County. I beheve this can be changed, and the proposal I am making, if adopted, would change it. Sincerely yours, Henry W. Morrow, Jr. ENJOYS THE NEWS EVEN IF PAPER COMES LATE Westfield, Mass.

Yours truly Louise S. Nicely FORMER RESIDENT GIVES VIEWS ABOUT NEW COUNTY SCHOOL 422 N. Forgeus Ave., Tucson, Arizona 85716 April 6, 1972 Dear Max, I fully intended a visit to Jeff- erson County after our Mediterr- anean trip last summer, but an accident (a broken leg) caused us to change our plans. I wanted to talk to you about the new Jeffer- son High School. I have been pleased and excited about this great decision ever ince I first read about it in your Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate. I "dreamed" of such a high Thus if some way can be found to deny the cell blood, growth can be arrested. The goal, then, is to find an antibody or method which would halt the chemical prod which stimultaes capillary growth by bringing new blood to the cancer cells. The chem- ical prod is termed the TAF factro by Folkman--Tumor-- Anglogenesis-Factor. Folkman estimates within two to five years such an anti- body can be found, now that the TAF factor is identified, and that when found it will be able to halt the growth of most are invited to join. school back in the 1926-28 years, uTh:d o:isS therclBOli:alhiele Ih::ghtatabHaPet? e Fg::y meetings are held on each Men-]teams we could have had with day night at 7:00 o clock at the I athletes like the Hahns, Maddoxes Bolivar United Methodist Church. i Rodeffers, Skinners, Morgans (to The Scoutmaster is Charles I name a few) playing on the same Hhkeenomyh  Crh::pleSG:guld I eaz:lZIhate the, B:r:'MDpy:: like to thank the people of the Littletons, Trundles, Webbs, Wilts Bolivar United Methodist Church All of these and others, who cancers; this would represent the greatest triumph to date for mankind over the dread disease. The Printed Word Advertising experts have discovered that only forty per cent of the U. S. population accounts for 68 % of all television viewing. More interesting, other studies indicate the televis- ion advertiser--unless he spends as much as his competitor--- may actually contribute to his competitor's sales. Newspapers and magazines are beginning to profit from these findings, and the advertiser is beginning to reassess his advertising budget in many cases. That is often logical because it is known that light television viewers (as apart from those who view more television) tend to be among the higher economic brackets, better educated and better buyers. (In other words the more ignorant watch more television.) Those who wish to reach the more affluent market Can often do so better with printed advertisements. The printed word, as has been true for centuries, is a permanent record. One doesn't have to hurry through print or miss the raz-ma- taz message. It's effective for a long time, and can be read by a dozen or more people at different times and on different days. for sponsoring them. Clyde M. Reed Jr., Sec.& Tres. B. S. A. Troop 68 April 5, 1972 Mr. Max Brown Editor Spirit of Jefferson Farmers Advocate Charles Town, West Virginia Dear Mr. Brown: On March 27, when I spoke to the Jefferson County Democratic Womans Club, I stated that if elected to represent Jefferson County in the House of Delegates I would propose legislation author izing County Courts in counties .where race tracks are located to impose a daily license tax on the track owners to provide funds to cope with the local problems created by racing. While this proposal was well received, there was some doubt expressed that this could be done. I do not share Panhandle Alumni Assn.

Naturally, any sffch legislation would have to be approved by a majority of the members of the House of Delegates and the State Senate, It has been said this approval would be hard to obtain, but I sincerely believe legislators from other counties would give their approval upon being satis- fied that it would in no wise de- crease the State revenue from racing and upon being satisfied that racing does create local pro- blems that local authorities can- not financially cope with. The most serious objection that has been voiced - - and it is an objection I prefer to face rather than sweep under the rug - - s that such legislation might be un- VOTE FOR JAMES M, MOLER HOUSE Of DELEGATES TO REPRESENT i JEFFERSON COUNTY EXPERIENCED IN PUBLIC SERVICE Apr. 13-1- (Pol. Adv.) would have had the opportunity to go to high school. Far too many young people in Jefferson County have been d nied an opportunity to get a sec- ondary education, because of transportation and expense. Now there is the opportunity for each! boy and girl to reach his/her potential. It is a great piece of news. The location of the school in- trigues me. Our Shenandoah Jun ction associates could have ramb- led over a few hills and dales and enjoyed and found ourselves in a high school classroom. We took a trip of about the same length to reach a two-room, eight grade elementtary. Not only will this new high school provide greater athletics, it will blossom in fields such as Mathematics, Science, Music, Dramatics, Art, and others. Better shops will produce a much better vocational program. All of this and terrific extra-curricular programs. My sympathy goes out to the School Board and the Administrat ion. They have the unpopular job of selecting the coaches, depart- ment heads and teachers. No matter how fair and objective they try to fill these positions they will be criticized. However time has a way of healing most of these wounds and it will not be too long before the new Jeffer son High School will be operat- ing as a well-oiled piece of mach- inery. The old sectionalism will be put aside and people will talk about (with pride, "our", high school. This happened in Tucson. In 1952 Tucson had one very large high school, Tucson High School, with over 8,000 students. Finally, after three bond elections were defeated one was passed to add three new high schools. This meant new districting and T. H. S. Freshmen and Sophomores were taken out of "their" school and placed in the new high school (Catalina, Pueblo and Rincon). Parents and students complained and griped. When the first senior class graduated from each of the three high schools they forgot that they had attended T, H. 8. Now we have ten senior high schools and none of them lack loyalty or school spirit. The big problem as I see it is that it will be difficult to fired real competition for your athletic teams.
