Taught by Mike Northrup, instructor of photography at Shepherd College, the class focused on topics such as ear- ly photographic methods, criteria for preservation, basic copying techni- qaues, and processing of negatives and prints. The session was videotaped and will be available for use in the future. The group also presented Dang Perks, Director of Social Studies for the county, with a videotape entitled "An Oral Historian's Work." This in- structional tape will be used in the Jef- ferson County School System for local history projects. The photo workshop was designed to give JCOVHA members the basic skills they need to work on the group's audio/visual histories of Thoroughbred Racing in Jefferson County, Shepherdstown in the 1920's, and Bakerton's First One Hunderd Years. JCOVHA's long-term project, the creation of a 1,000-item photo ar- chive, will draw its materials from the three audio/visual histories and local photo collections. More than 800 items have been collected to date. Each of the 1,000 items in the photo archive will be available as a slide, negative, and enlargement. The col- lection will be accessible through computer-generated catalogs and sub- ject indexes and through a visual in- dex that will let people browse through the collection. The photo archive will be expanded in the coming years and may eventually contain several thou- sand items. Discussion is now under- way to find a centralized, accessible place to house the collection. The Association's next workshop on the collection, use, and preservation of Oral History materials begins this Saturday, July 16th at the Jefferson High School Library (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Sunday, July 17th (2-5 p.m.), and Saturday, July 23rd (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Taught by Blair Hubbard, David Nathanson, and Bill Theriault, the workshop will deal with research techniques, processing of interviews, and preservation. The workshop is open to JCOVHA members at no charge, but reservations must be made by July 15th. JCOVHA workshops and projects are funded through a grant from the Humanities Foundation of West Virginia. Sponsors such as the Jeffer- son County Commission, the Charles Town Races, and the Bakerton Ruritan, and individual membership fees.

Medicare Coverage Benefits00 lutomatic Coverage under the new Medicare Catastrophic Health Insurance legisla- tion will be automatic for current beneficiaries in the Eastern Panhan- dle, according to Social Security officials. Those officials said currently enroll- ed beneficiaries will receive automatic protection as the provisions of the Catastrophic Insurance are phased in over the years ahead and do not need to call the local office to apply. The provisions of the new Medicare bill include: -Elimination of the $540 inpatient hospital deductible for each spell of il- lness and replacement with a single annual deductible (effective in 1969) ; -No new hospital deductible if the beneficiary paid a hospital deductible in December of the preceding year and is admitted to a hospital in January of the following year (effective 1989); -Care in a skilled nursing facility after treatment for an acute illness is extended from the current limit of 100 days to 150 days. The current require- ment for a prior hospital admission is eliminated (effective 1989); -Hospice benefits are extended beyond the current 210 day limit for terminally ill patients (effective 1989); -Out-of-pocket patient expenses for the $75 Medical Insurance deductible and 20 percent co-insurance are limited to $1,370 a year. At that point Medicare will reim- burse 100 percent of the reasonable charge ( effective 1990); -Prescription drug expenses over $600 in a year will be reimbursed at the rate of 50 percent beginning in 1991, rising to 80 percent in 1993.
