It's primary of course, to equip to function in the Sector, becoming citizens. if a client is not so or she can work they can be and they can earn the training center fulfillment of private industry. clients are 16; the her early 60's. at the For example, the center has contracts with Perkins En- terprises of Kearneysville; Badger-Powhatan of Ranson; and Western Electric of Berkeley County; and still maintains work contracts with the E. E. Fairchild Company, formerly of Ranson, now of Webster, New York. In addition, there's training in outside work, and contracts with those who need constant lawn care work...such as the Charles Town Turf Club where Training Center workers have kept the grounds over the past two years. This week, the same crews, utilizing hand mowers, tractors and hand clippers, have con- tracted with the Daughters of the American Revolution to clean up the area around St. George's Chapel, on Route 51 west of Charles Town. So excellent has been the performance of the clients at the Training Center that the income from these and other work contracts that approximately l fifty percent of the budget needed to maintain the center comes from these projects. At the Same time clients are paid an hourly wage for the work they do, with the scale based on the individual's skills and abilities. Incidentally, there is one project that continues throughout the year and is looked forward to eagerly, and that's the center's annual Christmas Shop. The clients make sFcial gifts for the holiday period, including the famous West Virginia Christmas wreath; they make jellies and jams and novelty items; and patrons of the center chip in with special baked goods and other items. When the shop is opened, generally on a Sunday in late November or early December, open house is held. The clients are there to show their wares, and to conduct guided tours of the facility, and to feel par- donable pride in ac- complishments which might seem small to some of us, but which loom large in their minds. The remainder of the center's support -- another fifty percent -- comes from various sources: The Unitl Way, private con- tributions, county commissions, school boards, and from Federal education programs. Another source of revenue was the recently-staged Charles Town Golf Classic at Sleepy Hollow Golf and Country Club. Currently, there are 86 clients at the center, coming from the three Eastern Panhandle counties -- Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan, many of them transported by school buses furnished by the Boards of Education. The center is currently directed by Joel C. Galperin, with Mrs. .Jack "Polly" Parkinson, a former Jefferson County resident, as assistant director. Naturally, they are interested in letting area residents know more about the Eastern Panhandle Training Center and i are currently in the process of completing a presentation which may be given before any in- terested organization. If you'd like to be included on the list to see this presentation, you should contact either Director Galperin or Mrs. Parkiuson. Of course you are welcome to visit the Center at almost any time during the year -- but particularly at Christmas time. We think you'll agree that here is an operation which, while supporting fifty percent of its budgetary obligations through the work of its clients, and utilizing some public tax monies for the remainder, can be classified as one that is worth eCery penny slant, no matter from what source.

Also in- cluded in the hydro classes are models similar to the hydroplanes seen at the Gold Cup Classics. The two types of boats are split into three classes, based upon the engine size. The "A" class has a displacement of up to .21 cubic inch, the "B" class up to .47 cubic inch, and the "C" class up to .67 cubic inch. The "C" class boats are able to reach speeds ranging from sixty to above ninety miles per hour. The races begin with a running start for the line at the starting horn. The winner is the first boat to complete five laps of the course. Points are awarded to! each boat starting a race, with their final position being determined by the points ac- cumulated in three races. In the event of a tie, the boat with the fastest time is the winner.

Instead, according to Donald McNamee, who heads up the drug abuse program at the center, any inquiries about the testing program will be referred to theW. Va. Health Department in "Charleston. The State Health Department announced several weeks that it would accept, with complete confidentiality, any marijuana samples suspected of being contaminated with the herbicide "Paraquat", used by the !Mexican government to destroy mirijuana crops. Paraquat, when present on marijuana, can cause fibrosis of the lungs of marijuana smokers. McNamee 'said that no requests for marijuana testing had been received at the Mar- tinsburg mental health center. But he added there had been strong negative reaction to the program from Eastern Panhandle residents, prompting Dr. McDonald's decision to refer any future requests to the state level. McNamee said that requests for screening should be sent to Robert Grubbs, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, State Department of Health. AUGUST SALE...
