PE Among Utility Companies To Test Validity State Tax System have joined with Ap- palachian Power Company, Duquesne Light Company, Ohio Power Company, and Virginia Electric and Power Company, in challenging the tax. The com- panies contend that Senat Bill 163, passed by the W. Va. Legislature on March 11, 1978, violates the Commerce and Equal Protection clauses of the United States Constitution as well as a federal statute which prohibits discriminatory state taxation of electricity generated for export. A similar tax enacted in Pennsylvania is also being challenged by Potomac Edison and other utilities in that state. Mr. McCardell said that the West Virginia tax on export power will increase the cost of electricity to Potomac Edison customers outside of West Virginia. He noted that for the first year alone, the new tax will increase PE's West Virginia taxes by about $2 million. The company's law suit attempts to prevent increases such as this. Potomac Edison intends to pay the new tax under protest Dean's List The names of Jefferson County students at Shepherd College whose Spring Semester grades qualify them for Dean's List honors have been released by Shepherd College Academic Dean, Dr. George A.

Not only can that table compliment the sofa which it fronts, but it can also be a beautiful and functional addition to a room in its own right. From a practical stand- point, if you have the right coffee table, people can not only use it from the sofa, but others can pull up chairs around it when appropriate, making use of the table and creating a nice conversation grouping, and even a place to serve from. You might want to consider a coffee table that can hold at least several cups or drinks plus ac- cessories. Actually, a new coffee table could fast become one of your favorite pieces of furniture if you select it for the use you'd like it to give you, as well as the looks you'd like it to have. Incidentally, it's usually a good idea to have the coffee table lower than the seat of your sofa. It's easier to use and doesn't interfere with the beauty of the sofa. To see a good selection of coffee tables -- and all furniture -- we invite you to stop in. Walker, Debra Griffith and James Clem. Also included are Kear- neysville residents Vicki J. Adkins, Helen K.

Whatever you do, don't ignore the prospect of a heart attack. Life is too good to throw away. It's to be enjoyed, Enjoy it in good health. Death comes in the form of a heart attack to over half a million Ameri- cans each year. Unfortunately, many heart attacks just seem to happen and nobody is really sure why. According to medical authorities, careful atten- lion to two things can significantly reduce the chance of its happening to you. first, what you eat. Be moder- ate with foods containing animal or saturated fats - eggs, organ meats like liver and kidney, butter, cream, cheese and whole milk. There is med- ical evidence to suggest a connection between these food: and a buildup of i:tv tissues on ',,e inner lining of. 'ruur arteries.And much like rust clog- ging a pipe, this tissue narrows the passpg"e for blood and may eventual!y lead to a blockage which could cause a heart attack. Try to eat more foods with poly- ursaturated fats. More fish and poul. try, skimmed milk, and polyunsatur- ated margarine. Don't assume that you are too young to have to worry about this buildup process. It starts early in life. Give your children sensible foods now and they may never have heart at- tacks in late' years, The other Dctof: have found that a!J of exercise the heart, to pump more It also helps keeP! for obesity exerts theheart. doing, it means activity like ming, or cycling: If yc a smoker, stop of Try to eliminate all, see your thorough If your have a goodness sake, deter, it.
