16 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JULY H, 1978 Labor Department Rules Designed To Placate Orchardists In an effort to forestall the luaC:ey Vohr : ebroig ; possibility of last minute court I n battles between itself and apple But migrant legal action groups growers of the area, the United States Labor Department has laid down now rules it believes ,rill simplify the impoting for orchard work of off-shore labor. As of August 16, the Labor Department will inform the growers of the number of foreign pickers it will certify for im- portation. The growers, if they want to dispute the certification, can do so in five days. An administrative judicial review will then be made within five days of the growers' protest; and, according to Aaron Bodin, chief of the division of labor certification, a decision vill also be rendered within the five days. All this is designed, it is ex- plained,, to cut delays and eliminate court fights when the crop is ready for picking. Under the old system, prepayment of transportation was a problem that propelled the .growers and the Labor Department into court last year. Bodin says this shouldn't be a problem this year because transportation for either domestic or Jamaican workers will not be paid ahead of time. Many Shenandoah Valley growers prefer to hire have pressured the Labor Department to compel the fruit producers to hire domestic laborers, not imported labor. They cite the high American unemployment rate as justification for hiring migrants. Federal law does require that growers, through the auspices of the U.S. Employment Service, scout domestic labor markets looking for pickers. Once this is done, the Labor Department is supposed to certify the number of additional foreign pickers needed to adequately meet the harvesting needs. In this respect, growers charge that Labor Department regulations are out of touch with the reality of harvesting their crop. They plead difficulty in hiring domestics as their rationale for needing foreign workers. Conversely, labor officials harbor some thoughts that the growers don't really make serious efforts at attracting American workers. Whatever the differences, the Labor Department is now hopeful that past battles can be left behind as the certification and importation process is simplified and accelerated. it][ recent repairs to the building Bardane Commun and the election of officers.

CITY OF CHARLES TOWN July 20-2t What is the connection be- tween dew on the ground and the dewpoint. Does dew form on the ground when the dew- point is reached? The dewpoint is that tem- perature at which the air would condense or precipitate. It's that temperature, lower than the actual temperature of the air, at which the moisture in the air would become visible or precipitate. Thus, there's no direct con- nection between dew on the ground and the dewpoint. As we have learned, dew on the ground forms when earthly objects cool the air to the dewpoint, but above the sur- face of the air, where physical objects don't come into contact with the warmer air, the tem- perature must reach the dew- point to cause visible moisture or precipitation. We can have dew on the ground, then, when the dew- point is many degrees below the actual temperature of the air. gram, a 36-year-old energy con- servation program sponsored by the Amoco Foundation, Inc. Ini- tiated by the Petroleum Power Development Committee of the National 4-H Council, the man- uals are being authored by Ex- tension and agricultural engineers in several states. Funding for the project is coming from the Amoco Foundation, Inc. Lawn and garden equipment care and maintenance is the subject of the first manual. A second booklet on minibikes and trail bikes is in production, as is another on boat motors. All three publications will be accompanied by leaders' manual guides. Man- uals on snowbiowers and chain- saws may be published at a later date. The lawn and garden equip- ment manuals are available by writing OKT/Colson, 4-H Serv- ice Dept., 901 N.

There are five Eyerly stores in the Maryland - Pennsylvania - West Virginia area...in Mar- tinsburg, Chambersburg, Frederick, Hagerstown and Cumberland. Also operated under S. Grumbacker and Son, out of York, Pa., are Ben Ton establishments in York, Lewistown, Hanover, Carlisle, and Uniontown, with one opening soon in Sunbury. The organization is headed by Tom Grumbacker, chairman of the board; Tim Grumbacker, president of the company, with Clair Bowers as executive vice- president. In addition to Manager Healey, John Hill and John Miller are assistant managers of the Martinsburg store, which is located in the storeroom for- merly occupied by Andrews Furniture. Incidentally, the downtown location of Eyerly's has been purchased by the Rumsey-Hess Furniture Company, and will be occupied by the firm sometime within the next thirty to sixty days, according to Fred B. Hess owner-operator. Prior to the formal opening of Eyerly's, a group of businessmen and represen- tatives of the news media were guests of the Grumbacker's at a breakfast at Goldie's Charcoal Kitchen, also in Berkeley Plaza. tinsburg, Eyerly's Department Store has moved to a new location in the Berkeley Plaza Shopping Center just north of the city. J The formal opening, marked by a ribbon cutting, took place Wednesday morning. Cutting the ribbon that opened the doors of the facility was Mrs. Jan Sutherland, representing the Berkeley County Commission. Aiding her in her task was Ivy Dee Meadows, Miss West Virginia 1978, Terry T. Harden, a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, and James A. Healey, manager of Eyerly's. A big crowd was on hand awaiting the opportunity to explore the new, fashion- oriented establishment. They received favors and also registered for a hum .ber of prizes that will be given away during Eyerly's grand opening celebration which extends through Saturday, August 5. According to Steve Eyster, sales promotion manager for the Eyerly chain, the new facility is between twenty and thirty percent larger than was the downtown store. It will feature much more fashion clothing than before; the cosmetic depart- ment has been enlarged; the young men's shop expanded; and a uniform shop added in addition to the regular line of ularity of diesel-powered auto- mobiles, the directory will be up- dated and reissued as frequently as necessary to include the grow- ing number of Amoco service stations equipped to meet the fuel and lubricating oil needs of diesel cars. In addition to dealer listings, the directories contain special sections about regulations on die- sel automobiles and explanations about various diesel grades and performance characteristics. A recent survey by Amoco dis- closed that more than 33 per cent of the 1,600 motorists surveyed would probably buy diesel-pow- ered cars if available at a "reason- able and affordable price." Most of the motorists surveyed believe that diesels rated better than gas- oline-powered cars in fuel costs r mile, miles per gallon, engine life, safety from fuel fires, engine breakdowns, amount of repairs, and pollution. 2 boxes cherry jello 2 c water 1 can pie cherries Cook Whip (approxi- mately 1 cup) RECIPE sy   Sh=h= February has many special days and entertaining should be a delight to the hostess as there are so many ideas suggested for this month. s,  c. 1 white cake mix Bake white cake mix in loaf pan (approximately 9 X 13 inches) according to directions on box.

The first of these pro- grams is the Wheaties Sports Federation Jogathon, which was developed as a unique fund-raiser to assist schools throughout the nation in keeping their sports pro- grams active and financially healthy. "Having been an amateur athlete most of my life, I know how important financially strong athletic programs are to the encour- agement of athletic partici- pation among America's youth," said Jenner, who is chairman of the Wheaties Sports Federation. Participants in the Jogathon seek commitments from their community, friends and relatives for $1 per mile that is jogged. The more donors and the more miles jogged, the more dol- lars raised for a school's athletic program. In addi- tion, the Wheaties Sports Federation will provide $15,000 in awards for out- standing performance by a coach, high school and com- munity. In all, 32 schools in eight regions will receive these awards based upon a the cake and cover the entire cake with the mixture of jeilo dissolved in the 2 cups of water. Let this stand and cool.
