Display Of Cup Plates Feature At CT Library The display case in the cir- culation desk of the Old Charles Town Library features cup plates with characters from the stories of Thornton Burgess pressed upon them by the Pairpoint Glass Company of Cape Cod. Thornton Burgess found his way to children's hearts through gentle bedtime stories about the animals he knew and loved. He was born in 1874 in Sandwich, Mass., and, as a boy, he found Peter Rabbit and His Friends in the Sandwich Brian Patch. The stories are timeless and have been printed over and over again and read by countless children. Classics they may not be, but loved they are. For those who wonder just what is a cup plate, a word of explanation. Cup plates of the type displayed were used bet- ween 1826 and1850, when fashion decreed tea cups without han- dles. Hot tea was poured into saucers to cool, while the cup was placed on a small plate to prevent damage to best linens or polished tables. At the library, story time at 10:30 each Wednesday morning has been exceptionally well attended. Fifty.eight children heard stories this past Wed- nesday. Three persons told stories as the children were divided into three groups before they went to the auditorium for a film stip story. The library needs Time magazine for the following dates, January 23, February 6, and March 6, all in 1978. Also U.S. News and World Rert for February 6. These magazines are bound for reference and would be incomplete without these issues. MMUNITY OIL CO.

Va. -- A 24-year-old Shepherd College student was fined $50 and placed on one-year probation in Shepherdstown Traffic Court on Tuesday, June 27, on charges that stemmed from an incident early in May. The bearded young man allegedly tossed two bricks through the window of an apartment he was renting, in retaliation for being locked out by his landlord. The apartment owner closed the doors after the student on the evening of May 8 -- graduation night at Shepherd -- admittedly tossed a 28-inch color television from the second story apartment window on the town's main street, to the pavement below. His reason: Television is the primary cause of drug addiction and alcoholism in America today. Brett Lee Decker, of Maryland, a psychology major in his fifth year of college who hopes to graduate next May: sees a correlation between the rising popularity of television and the "lost art of con- versation." He believes that a decline in communication skills has led young Americans in- creasingly to rely on booze and drugs to compensate for the inadequacy. He speaks somewhat eloquently of his theory -- "perhaps an incomplete correlation" -- and explains: "Before television, four types of entertainment prevailed -- conversation between in- dividuals, active participation in sports, spectator sports, and television, radio and the movies, in that order of importance. Today, however, the roles are reversed and conversation has become a lost art?' Willfully offering himself as example, Decker says, "Alcohol was socially unacceptable to my parents when I was a child. But they didn't mind if I watched television eight .hours a day, sometimes all day and all night. lecause I watched so much TV I never learned properly to communicate with others; I'm: shy, and feel uncomfortable with persons I don't know. As a result, I rely on alcohol as a 'crutch', to looseo me up, to release my true feelings so I can communicate . in social situations." "As peciliar as it may seem," he continues, nursing a bottle of beer at a nearby Maryland tavern, "after drinking heavily for about eight years, since I first encountered difficult social situations as a high school senior, this is the first time that I don't depend heavily on booze or on television. "Somehow I feel that I've cleansed my body, finally, after all these years of addiction. I'm free, at one with myself." Despite his obvious aversion to television- "a nemesis to society when used in the wrong way" -Decker enjoys some shows. "Star Trek is the best conceived series, ad Sixty Minutes-- the only program I've watched since I exorcised the evil out of the television set -- is an excellent example of how it can he used for good cause. "So many normal and in- telligent people sit in front of the box without any good reasons to do so, when they could he doing so many other worthwhile ac- tivities -- all unknowingly ad- dicted by the 'force' that attracts them." He pushes away a half-filled beer bottle and scratches his head in dismay. "I don't know whether a majority or a minority of people are affected by this force. Maybe by reading this article some people will be able to realize, 'when I was young, I, too, was mesmerized, and I have the same problems today.' To them I only can ad- vise: 'The evil must be destroyed; throw out your TV's. Do it now." Probe Continues Unusual Death Bunker Hill Nu The investigation into the I somewhat unusual death of a 20- year-old nurse from Bunker Hill in Berkeley County is con- tinuing, according to Trooper William B. Sheep, of the Jef- ferson County Detachment of State Police. The body of Mrs. Regina B. Thomas was recovered from the Potomac River near the Harpers Ferry dam early Saturday af- ternoon by Maryland State Police. She had been missing since the evening of June 13, when she left a friend's home in Bakerton. The search centered on the Potomac River when her wrecked car, which had struck a tree, was found June 14 near the Bakerton railroad underpass on River Road. Spots of blood were found ins!de the car.
