Ware (304) 267.4949 July 20-3t beautify the campus at Questover, some 21/2 miles east of Berryville, Va., about 200 guests joined the 75 students, 81 staff members, and members of the board of directors of the school in the multiple celebration. During the closing services for the year, in which 20 students were graduated, every student was presented with a certificate which commended him or her for specific areas of achievement. One boy was given the first Presidential Physical Fitness Award eve" won at Grafton School. Most of the graduates will return to their own local public schools in the ' fall, although a few will go on to other special education private institutions for older children, as the Grafton program only ex- tends to 16-year-olds. Headmaster Robert W. Stieg, Jr., assisted by supervisory leaders within the faculty and residence staff, made the presentations after the students bad demonstrated some of their newly acquired skills, including karate, photography, scouting, sports, and delivery of memorized poems. School and board president Walter H. Johnson reviewed the steps involved in planning and development of a $1A-million building program to modernize and expand the campus, em- phasizing the impetus provided by the gift of the 265 acre Dunton farm by Mr. and Mrs. Edward Durell of Berryville. The proceeds from the sale of that property plus the later gift and sale of property by William Leachman, and pledges made by members of the board of directors, have resulted in a total of $400,000, leaving the requirement for raising another $123,000 in gifts and pledges by the end of 1978. The remainder of the total costs has been assured through the approval of a low- interest loan from the Farmers Home Administration, so that construction can proceed as soon as bids have been obtained and contracts awarded. All planned work should be completed by September 1979, according to Johnson. Wielding  the - ceremonial chrome-plated shovel, also provided by Edward Durell I retired chairman of the board of Union Fork and Hoe Cor- poration, was Mrs. Samuel Birch, founder of the school. She biefly stated that this action represented a "20-year dream come true" for her and remarked upon the outlook for the future of the school with fine, new facilities designed as a school from the outset. With the entry of the shovel into the sod, about 300 helium-filled, brightly colored balloons were released and could be seen drifting towards Washington, amidst the applause of the crowd. Following the ceremony, lunch was served under the trees to guests and participants, with guests assigned to tables with students and staff. Among the guests were a number of previous students and their parents, many from long distances. Of this, Headmaster Steig and other staff members commented with great pleasure and pride, as each represented some measure of success story for the work done at Grafton. Grafton School is a private, non:profit school and treatment center for children, aged 5 through 16, with learning and communications disabilities and emotional disorders. Also in- cluded is a special program for autistic children, which is becoming of increasing demand on an annual basis since its inception about three years ago. "Search And Serve" For Handicapped Not In Schools The West Virginia Depart- ment of Education and all the public school systems in the state this month are launching a program entitled "Search and Serve" to determine if there are any handicapped West Virginians who may not be at- tending schools or benefiting from other educational services available in the public schools.

Although the search for handicapped individuals has been on-going for several years, through the "Search and Serve" thrust it is hoped that anyone not aware of the opportunities available in the schools may be informed. "The public schools in recent years have been hiring specialists, retraining per- sonnel, purchasing special equipment and expanding i training facilities," stated State !Superintendnet of Schools Daniel B. Taylor. "If you know of anyone, preschool through age 23, who is not being served by our educational system, contact your county schools," Dr. Taylor urged. During the fall months, citizens will hear of the "Search and Serve" program through public service announcements on television and radio, and read about it in the printed media. On the first day of school, parents will receive, via their children, pamphlets which will inform them of the search for ban- capped persons. Posters and pamphlets will be available in all counties and distributed to such places as churches, businesses, stores, organizations and civic groups. Fill Up Oil Tanks While Supplies Large High midsummer tem- )eratures may help ease the ! memory of last winter's record- shattering cold in West Virginia, but the state Fuel and Energy Office is advising the state's homeowners to begin taking steps now to insure a warm home and to save on heating fuel costs next winter. The Fuel and Energy Office is urging persons who heat their homes with heating oil, kerosene i or propane to fill up their tanks as early as possible, to avoid the anticipated rush to buy those fuels later this year. Heating fuel suppliers throughout the state have told the State Fuel and Energy Office that an abundant supply of fuel now exists and suppliers are encouraging their customers to begin filling their fuel tanks. In some instances, home heating fuel customers in the I State can expect to receive the fuel at reduced prices, if they purchase it this summer from a supplier offering "summer fill- Ix,,] if It's Westinghouse WettlngbcmW Heat Pumps TWIN T ENG.
