C. Master will not seek re- election when the city's biennial election is held on May 25. Mayor Master, in making this announcement to the Charles Town Council at its semi- monthly meeting in the Council Chambers, said "the joy of having been Mayor of Charles Town for the past ten years is post -- it's no fun anymore." In other business to come before the Council, William "Bill" McDonald, General Manager of the two Charles . Town race tracks, talked with the Council about the sewage disposal problems being en- countered by the two race tracks. The tracks, some time ago, also requested sewage service from Charles Town, but the request has  turned down by the City on the basis that it was not now in a position to add this extra load of sewage' waste to the present sewerage treatment plant. # McDonald told the Council the Shenandoah Corporation, owners of the two race tracks, has received tentative approval from three governmental agencies to build a sewage treatment plant, but track, of- ficials do not desire to go in that direction. McDonald suggested that if the City of Charles Town would allow the tracks to tie into the Charles Town sewer system, i the tracks would not only pay for installation costs, but would upgrade the City's plant to the' point where it would not be overloaded by the additional sewage. He said the tracks would pay up to $350,000.00 for the sewage plant improvements. request is to have the city's consulting engineer make a feasibility study, at the track's expense. The Council agreed to the feasibility study, but would ! go no further since the Council's policy has been, and is that of not giving service outside the cor- porations of Charles Town and Ranson. Three members of the Charles Town Zoning Commission, headed by Mrs. Rosa Hall as spokesman, discussed some of the municipal ordinances with Council. She said some of them are not exact and clear and need more clarification. The dog problem was also discussed by Council, with Councilman Q. D. Fleming calling for the hiring of a city dog warden. Mayor Master said he would ask City Police to crack down on dog owners who allow their dogs to run loose. Frank Kiston, of East Washington Street, asked Council to make a study between now and next Winter on snow removal, particularly on Washington Street. The Council was sympathetic to the suggestion. At the request of Council William Psillas, Jr., discussed with Council the problem of funding the police department's per, sion fund. At the present the city is providing $12,000.00 in unding each year, but Psillas pointed out that just to cover the four oldest officers between now and the time they retire, the city should be putting at least $23,000.00 per year into the fund. The police pension fund is required by state law, but no state financial assistance is made available for the fund. 11 Jefferson Countians To Graduate from Nursing Class The Shepherd College Nursing Class of 1979 invites the public to a capping ceremony that is to he held at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 22, in the Ballroom, Shepherd College Center.

The Ram Freshman is leading his team in seven offensive categories, including runs, hits, RBI's, triples and home runs. Before the season started, Ram coach Mike Jacobs said that Diehl was capable of "breaking several batting records at Shepherd". Steve seems intent on proving Jacobs' predictions, as his .419 hatting average shows. Jacobs is enthusiastic about Diehl's performance and his potential. "Steve is one of the' best recruits we've ever signed. Re was one of the most sought Local Arrr,wr(00stlers Do Well At Coastal C 00ampionships Two Charles Town wristwrestlers did well at the recent Atlantic Coast Conference Arm- wrestling Champions held at Newport News, Va., recently. The meet attracted all four professional champions of the world and some of the best armwrestlers around. In the above photo, Doug Davis, lightweight, left, and Jerry Beyd, heavyweight, did ex- tremely well in the competition. Boyd was second in the heavyweight event to two-times world professional champ Dan Mason, from Springfield, Mass., a man many experts call the greatest armwrestler of all time. Davis won first place by defeating four-time world amateur champion George Kent. The victory ranks Davis as one of the best in his field. Boyd said Davis has a chance this year to become West Virginia's first wristwrestling champion of the world. Yvoune Saunders, Diane Palmer, Lynn Loretta Reed.

Shepherd Girl Softballers Look Forward to Tournament With a 3-2 record to date and real power to heat looks like facing seven more games this Morris Harvey who we will not season before the WVIAA meet until the tournament. Our Tournament, the Shepherd College Women's Softball Team keeps "improving in hitting and pitching every game", ac- cording to Coach Sherry Brown. A shut-out loss to Ohio State at 9-0 and a 13-8 loss to West Virginia University as the first two games for the team just "showed us that we needed to work on hitting and pitching", Coach Brown stated. The first home game against Galludet saw the Lady Rams post an impressive 11-5 win with Donna Miller (Berkeley Springs) pitching a two-hitter. In the hitting department, first baseman, Carol Taylor (Cross Junction, Va.) hit two homeruns; third baseman, Cheryl Roberts (Shepherd- stown), hit a homerun; second basemen, "Peachie" Meadows  (Harpers Ferry)), had three for four on the day; and outfielder Cindy Stewart (Emmitsburg, Md.), had two for four. Marshall University proved no problem for the women with a doubleheader win at 37-13 and 23- 5. Miller pitched a three-hitter the first game and number three pitcher Cindy Stewart pitched a two-hitter the second. Stewart also contributed to the hitting with one homerun with shortstop Susie Stoeker (Martinsburg), hitting one also. Coach Brown is even more optimistic than at the beginning of the season. "The girls are really living up to expectations. I am very pleased with their fielding, as their hitting and ! pitching keep improving". "The way it's going now, our goal is the tournament as the ... prospects to come to Shepherd. There is no doubt in my mind about the things he can ac- complish this season as well as the season ahead. I planned for him to be the cornerstone of our offense in the future, but statistically, he's doing it right now", Jacobs observes. Diehl turned down some offers to go pro to come to Shepherd and play football and baseball. But he came for another reason as well. "I came to get an education as well. To play pro ball seemed really attractive and it is still one of my goals. But I wanted to be prepared in case something happens. I can't play ball all of my life", Diehi said. The Rams are currently third in the WVC's southern con- ference with a record and Diehl i said, "We've got the talent to do better. We've just got to play together and get to know each other". Diehl may not quite know his teammates, but he does knew the strike zone. AGNES B.
