July 31, 1961 The Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Editor I would like to say that the 15th reunion of the Charles Town High School graduating class of 1946, early this month was a very nice occasion. The main regret was that it didn't come 5 years sooner. It was decided to hold another reunion 5 years from now. I think it would be nice for all graduating classse to hold eriodic reunions to renew old friendships and to reminisce. Some people have been wan- dering where I have been for some months. So I would like to tell of my experiences for these past months. I entered Washing- ton Missionary College last Sep- tember 22, 1961. The name of it was changed to Columbia Union College in April of this year. I found this school located next to the well known Washington Sanitarium in Takoma Park a- bout 2 miles from the B. & O. Railroad Station to be quite a school. One of my early surpris- es was the fact that out of a stu- dent body of 850, there were a. round 32 states represented in- thlrty-one couples married since I Ring called upon Mr. and Mrs. school let out. I attended fourI Doug Ring. weddings in two days after the Last week Mrs. James Cain and graduation ceremonies of friends Mrs. Harlan James accompanied of mine. Another important ev- by Miss Betty Unger, Mrs. Dovie ent was the announcement of an Ritter and Miss Faye McDonald grant from the Atomic Energy all of Winchester went to Atlan- Commission for research with a- tic City, N. J. for a four day va- tomic isotopes in the Biology De- cation. I partment. I Sunday callers at Mrs. Virginia I think one of the outstanding Shull's were Mr. and MFs. Mike things for a small school like this Hough and sons, Paul, Wayne and is the fact that it has a field biol, Mike, Mr. Phillip Hough and sons ogical station which is located in IDickie and LeRoy and daughter the George Washington NationalI Margaret Ann, Mr. and Mrs. John Forest on U.

The school has 10 Miss Glen Shockey of Martins, acres leased here and has mod- burg and Mrs. Mary Lou Zombro ern bathroom facilities. A dormi, and sons Donnie and Dougie of tory for up to 40 people and a Falls Church, Va. combination dining, classroom aid recreation building for recre WHITTINGTON FAMILY ation there is swimming, moun-,TO HAVE REUNION tain climbing, horseshoes, base. I The Whittington Family will ball inside games, the shot put!hold a reunion on the g'rounds and discus. What makes+ this a,of F. T. Whittington, Halltown good spot for a station of this ty Saturday, Aug. 26 at 2 p. m. Sup pe is its southern location at a per will be at 4 p. m. DST. All high elevation. This gives you a combination of both northern and southern flora and fauna: There are bear, wild turkey, deer around 75 kinds of birds and over a hundred different kinds of in. sects. I might add that there is even a beaver dam about a mile up Shaw's Fork from the stat- ion. I suppose you may wonder why I a religious major am here. I first became acquainted with this place through natural science club trips. This spring, a girl, Ruth Wente, whom I knew in the H alth Service suggested that I come down here. She was coming to assist in the cooking. I felt a need to know more about nature too, so a combination of these factors" brought me down here. I came down her on June 14th and will be here to August 15th. There are two sessions here and we have averaged 9 students for each sesion. The students here represent Ohio, W. Va., Va. and Md. It is truly a wonderful ex- perience to sit in class on a screened in room with a moun- tain stream. A stones throw away and a mountain ridge right be- hind it. One of our time pieces the first session was a whipper- will that started his call about 9:10 each night. One of our grad uating students of this year who will enter the Massachusetts In- stitute of technology this fall to take advanced work in the biological line is taking pictures her of flora, fauna and other natural things for use in the hie logy department. His photogra- phy is top notch and his slides are beautiful to see. I would highly recommend this cluding Hawaii and 35 foreign places ranging from Denmark, place for a study of things in the South Africa, Syria, Israel to W. natural science line. We had two Va. including me and Mary My- high school students the first ses sion who audited courses and did ers from Jefferson. I found this school to have some very good teachers and some of the work was harder than at W. V. U. which I had in the past. Profes. sor Haris the chairman of the Biology Department is consider- ed a top man in the D. C. area. He is a good all around man in his field and after graduating from this college he took advance work at Cornel. He is widely tray eled for he visited the Amazon River area a few years ago. He has traveled over much of the U. S., some of Mexico and over much of the western pacific area in World War II and immediate- ly after all over Japan. He ac- companied 5 medics in Japan right after the surrender to Hir- oshima to release 6+000 prisoners from Corregidor and the south pacific from a prison camp. Phd. John Davidson the entymology man of the department at 28 years old is considered one of the two top scale insect men in the U.S. I should say at this point that this is an Seventh Day Adventist School, but accepts anyone who will abide by its standards. A good friend of mine had transfer- red to this school frpm the Cita- del in Charleston, S. C. He was thinking about" taking up law at Temple this Fall. There was an- other student I knew who came from the University of Maryland because he felt lost there. I think anyone will build up many more friendships in a small college. They have a good recrea tion plan which includes softball, tennis, swimming, touch football, intramural basketball, relier skat ing, tumbling and outings to climb nearby mountains or to vis it nearby areas. To Sunday after noon to distant such places as hawk mountain near Hamburg East of Harrisburg, Pa. Here one may see many hawks and other birds riding the air drafts over very well. Regular college stu- dents can gain full accredited college credit for courses taken. There is a reasonable charge for the classes taken and the room and board is very reasonable. I might say the main worry here is eating too much in that line. In formation on any of the above can be had from the registrar Columbia Union College Takoma Park 12, Md. Will I be glad to see Charles Town next month. Sincerely, Angus McDonald By Patsy Zombro Deferred From Last Week Miss Linda Lou Bradley of Charles Town spent the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Carroll H.

There are large parties dur ing the year with the school pic, being the largest. It involve} a trip by bus to, the D.

There are games, walking and just plain relaxing there a- long with a picnic lunch among the outstanding outside entertain sent was a man who showed us slides and 19etured on a trip a- round the world in a sea going jeep. It took about 6 years and many thousand dollars. Then there was the world famous Don Cossack chorus. They have tour- ed all over the U. S. and over much of the world. Their sing- ing is an example of perfect voice control. Surprisingly to me a total of over $11,000 in scholarships was given out this sprmg. I might say that it does well in the marriage SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON rzamms XDVOCA'rl THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1961 5--B FOR YOUR So CALL CHARLES TOWN 899 OR VISIT OUR PLANT AT MILLVILLE, W. VA.
