Remember the CALLING ALL HOMEMAKERS Brought To You By RAMP'S OTTOMANS CAN BE HANDY did you ever stop to llllll [ think that one of the more practical pieces of furniture is the ot- toma n-- mtY because they have so many dif- ferent uses. People often overlook the possibility of using ot- tomans by themselves in their own right. Ottomans can be useful for informal seating, singly or in pairs, and they even come with casters so that they can be rolled sround and used where needed--and then pushed under a table, or placed beside a fireplace, or window when not needed. But that's only part of the ottoman story. They, of course, can also be teamed with chairs as a footrest, complimenting the beauty and comfort of the particular chair the ottoman is being used with. There are even ottomans that open into a full size bed which gives you a great idea for guest rooms and family rooms as well as living rooms. You have a seat by day and a bed by night that can solve a lot of decorating problems. And, speaking of solving problems, we can offer you a wide variety of fur- nishings, and we invite you to come in for any of you'r decorating needs. RAM _--, 'S FURNITURE & APPUANC Charm Town, W, Va.

"Coping With Kids" Course To Be Offered For teachers, social workers, and all others who live, work, or care for children, a "common- sense" approach to un- derstanding and dealing with children will be the subject of a course scheduled for Wednesday evenings, beginning Sep. tember 13, 1978, from 6 to 9 p.m. "Coping With Kids" explores fundamental principles which guide young people and offers techniques to improve behavior. The participants will develop skills which encourage children, lielp them to resolve conflicts and cultivate mutual un- derstanding and respect. Based on the theory and methods of Dr. Alfred Adler, a renowned psychologist, "Coping With Kids" emphasizes democratic methods of discipline, the use of en- couragement to foster cooperation, and the use of classroom meetings and adult discussion groups as methods of putting ideas into action. Televised live seminars provide an opportunity for participants to interact with the course instructor and a panel of experts, who highlight the usefulness of this approach. The course offers graduate  and undergraduate credits from selected institutions throughout the Appalachian Region. Classes are available in Petersburg and Romney, W.
