Va. 25414 Dear Sir: Last week a letter was carried by this paper in the '!Letters to the Editor column", criticizing the past writings of Mr. William Brown. The name was withheld at request of the writer. The author of that letter wrote mat he or she w shed that just once sometmng comphmentary would be stud 0y Mr. Brown. This is bad for it snows that certain cRizens of our community do not wish to know the facts, but to be told only what they w~sh to hear. certainty one does not have to look far in our community to find good, but these who claim only ale good and drown out the bad would do well twremember this old Proverb. "He who takes credit zor the sunshine must also take olame for the rain." Enless we heed the warnings of Mr. Brown's letters, I fear that efferson Countians will be faced oy the looming storm clouds ot me rain of backwardness. If one would look back upon me letters written by Mr. Brown, xxe would find only true, honest acts. uould it be that those wtm conaemn one WhO tries to present (acts are trying to cover up their own snort comings? I must request the publisher to print this letter as it appears be- fore him - - - uncut and unedited. Very truly yours, Daniel P.

And unless they happen to be the best, there are no trophies or medals for them at the end of an athletic season. But since the Charles Town High eheerleading squad was rated as tops during the past 1965-66 school term, they did come in for special recognition and also a trophy. And they took their first bow in the spotlight at Petersburg High School the night of March 4 when they were officially named as the best cheerleading squad at the Class.AA Section 3, tournament, their full recognition before their schoolmates did not come until Friday night when they were formally presented the big trophy by their faculty advisor, Mrs. Lorna Frye, at the annual awards banquet held in the school cafeteria In presenting the trophy Mrs. Frye gave individual recognition and praise to each member of both this cheerleading squad and also the Junior Varsity squad.
