To Th I Arlington, Va.

C. Roberts NO OFFENSE INTENDED Reference is made to an article appearing in the Sunday Maga- zine section of The Star on July 12, under the heading, "Village in Void". It is beyond my comprehension as to how or wily such an asine ti- tle was concocted. Funk and Wag nails Standard Dictionary define~ the word "void" in part as follows: "not occupied by matter or by vis- If you're particular about food, you'll articularly like our cuisine . . . every {ish e x p e r t l y prepared to win your e0rapliments !

Suet] a title is most un- complimentary to the village and its residents. Middleway as most other small villages, has suffered the loss of numerous former citizens due to economic conditions ,the advent of the automobile, and migration correspondent is not cognizant of this situation. As a former resident of Middle- way during my childhood, I strongly feel that an apology through the medium of your pa- per to the residents of Middleway past and present is in order. J. C. Roberts (Editor's Note: Perhaps the choice of the word 'void" to des-I cribe this isolated but charming West Vwginia hamlet was not the best one and The Star regrets that Mr. Roberts took it as a slur. This certainly was not intended). ~Washington Star 200 East 66th Street New York 21, N. Y. July 9, 1959 Cc-To Mr. Max Brown, Editor Spiri,t of Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town, W. Va. Mr. J. Karl Grubb Bolivar Harper's Ferry, W. Va. Dear Karl : I have had a bee in my bonnet for ~metime and i~ is t,ha,t some- thing should be done to have a pageant in Harpers Ferry based on the Joh~n Brown Ra,id. Th~s was stimula,ted further by a recent and very exceHen,t article in the Jefferson-Advocate by Mr. Henry W. Morrow. OVher cities and towns in the county have such an affair, for example: Natural Brid- ge, Virginia; W~liiams,burg; Fort Niagara; Vhe Song of Hi,a,wa,th,a pa geant in Elgin; a,nd, even a reenac tment of the capture and lynching of a Western desperado in Tomb- scone, Arizona. I feel very strong,ly that this sig n,ifi.eant event in our history should be commem~)rated proper- ly and I feel sure t~ha,t t~housmnds of our countrymen would want to see it and would want .their children to see it too. An extreme- ly interesting s'hc~w could be work ed up and v~i,th tr,i,ps to 'historic Charles Town as well, it would be very appealing.
