It is a three- to continue and ex- city's housing program now funded by HUD. Martinsburg received the three-year grant basically because it has already had experience in the area where the grant is to be applied. Harpers Ferry had also asked for a three- year grant, but got just one year because it had no previous ex- perience in the project it proposed. Four Jefferson County requests were turned down: Jefferson County Commission $500200 for a housing study; Ranson, $500,000 to correct storm drainage problems and initiate a housing rehabilitation program; Shepherdstown $335,000 for housing rehabilitation, street im- provements and construction of a park and playground; and Bolivar, $500,000 for street construction, updating housing and building cedes and housing rehabilitation.

Tempo increased as party-time arrived with ice cream and cookies. There are some children who failed to make the party, but certificates will be given at the library if the report booklets are returned. Calls have been made to the library, and this will ex- plain why certificates can be gotten. Children have reported that vacations, illness and being unable to get to Charles Town prevented them from attending last Thursday's party. However summer activities for children are not over as each Wednesday morning at 10:30 there is story time. Unbelievable as it may seem, 86 children attended story time last Wed- nesday. They were invited into three groups with a story teller for each group. Then all gathered in the auditorium for two film-strip stories, and back to the library for their treat and to check out books. On Aug. 17, there will be a full length movie for children and anyone who wants to attend calle "A Boy Named Charlie Brown". The place, the auditorium of the library at 2 p.m. This is free and should be fun. 394 Jefferson County Childien Eligible For Clothing Allowance CHARLESTON -- Governor Rockefeller announced Monday the state Department of Welfare will provide a $50 special allowance to school-age children in welfare and foster families to assist them in purchasing clothes for school this fall. . The Governor said the special allowance will be distributed beginning Aug. 17, to more than 33,843 children from kin- dergarten through high school age who meet eligibility requirements. In addition to the 31,601 children in over 15,000 eligible households, 2,242 youngsters living with foster families will also benefit from this clothing grant, the Governor said. Total cost of the program this year will be $1,692,150. The availability 'of federal matching funds at the rate of ap- proximately 70 percent, however, reduces the amount of state dollars required to $504,9. In Jefferson County, he said 14 foster children and 380 children in families assisted by Aid to Familie with Dependent Children are expected to be eligible. Total Expenditures will be $19,700.00. Rockefeller indicated checks for each eligible child will be mailed to families on a schedule which will allow adequate time for pre-school shopping and selection. In order to secure federal matching funds, the special allowance is made in check, rather than voucher form. This a requirement implemented last year by the U.S. Depart- ment of Health, Education and Welfare.
