16 SPIRITOF JEFFERSON Farmer's'ADVOCATE THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 1978 Crowned Junior Miss America Miss Toschia Spriggs, shown above, daughter of Mrs. Sharon Spriggs, of Harpers Ferry, was crowned Betty Lou's Junior Miss America of 1978 at the June Dance Recital presented by students of Betty Lou's Dance Studio at Jef- ferson High School for the benefit of the school's library fund.

Betty Lou's Dance Studio has been in operation in Jefferson County since 1960, and prior to that Betty Lou Cavalier operated three studios in Frederick, Md.

Ron Free Named First Full Time Executive Of Business Alliance Metro Director Howard Kenney of the National Alliance of Business has announced the appointment of Ron Free as the first full-time Account Executive of NAB for the local Tri-Valley area, which includes Washington and Frederick Counties in Maryland; Morgan, Jefferson and Berkeley Counties in West Virginia; and Win- chester and Frederick County in Virginia. The National Alliance of Business is a partnership of business, labor, government and education working to provide jobs and related manpower training for disadvantaged persons, Vietnam veterans, needy youth, and ex-offenders. Increased Tri-Valley activity gave rise to the newly created CETA funded position. As Ac- count Executive, Ron will call on local businesses in an effort to expand NAB's mission and thereby increase the number of jobs available for the "hard-core Unemployed." In Morgan, Jefferson and Berkeley Counties alone, during the first nine months of fiscal year 1978, forty-eight par- ticipating companies have hired 163 Economically Disad- vantaged persons, 10 Ex- Offenders, 57 Veterans and 230 Youth for a total of 460 placements. Although a significant number, 33 percent of the area companies have yet to take part in the program. The presence of a full-time Account Executive will better enable NAB to contact those valuable business sector resources who are not yet participating in an attempt to help relieve employment related community problems. Free was a member of the U.S. Air Force, serving various U.S. bases and Thailand. A graduate of Eisenhower College, Seneca Falls, N.Y., he received a BA. degree in a Personalized Con- centration. Ron is a musician-song writer currently performing c0n- temporary easy listening music as a solo artist. He was formerly a band member with Don Barnes and the Countrymen Show and Damion and the Classics. A native of Thurmont, Md., Ron now lives in Hagerstown.

Gypsy Moth Eradication Underway CHARLESTON, W. VA. -- Agriculture Commissioner Gus R. Douglass announced today that the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture USDA, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the W. Va. Department of Agriculture WVDA, will join in a cooperative program to eradicate the gypsy moth along a section of the Appalachian Trail located in Loudoun County, Va., near the West Virginia line. The first larva was found in June; but during July, Virginia and West Virginia plant pest specialists found the first evidence that the adult gypsy moth was emerging in Virginia along a section of the hiking trail which is within 500 feet of West Virginia. Last year inspectors from USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service APHIS, and the WVDA had multiple catches of adult male gypsy moths in the vicinity of this year's find. Multiple catches in an area such as this one, Kiwanians Give Check To Park In the above picture Rick Harris, chairman of the park breakfast for the Charles Town Kiwanis Club, is shown presenting Ernest Houser, president of Jefferson Memorial Park with a check for $633.47, proceeds of the annual break- fast in the park. Start Kelly, who was very in- strumental in the success of the all-day festival in the park is standing in the center. Robert D. Ott, chairman of the all day festival announced that over $2400 was raised, a record for one day. which is well removed from a known area of infestation, in- dicate the possibility that a small infestation may have been established prior to this year. Several male moths have been captured this summer in detection traps placed at 100-foot intervals near the area of in- festation. Each trap is baited with a sex attractant called Disparlure which puts out a scent that mimics that of the clude spraying of the infested area next spring. Three flights by air at ten-day intervals will cover an area of 20,000 acres of private hardwood forests that run 6 miles north, 4 miles south, and 11/2 miles east and west of the infestation. Estimated cost of the operation will be about $150,000, with the two states sharing equally in matching funds with the USDA. contractural agreements with department -- Bethany, added this year, Concord, Fairmont State, Glenville State, Parkersburg Community College, Marshall University, Shepherd, Southern West Virginia Community College, West Virginia State and West Virginia University. Specifically, Shepherd College at Shepherdstown will receive from the welfare department $65,442. The school will match that with $21,814, raising the total contribution to $87,256. The reasoning behind the contribution is that many students taking part in the program will become social workers in the state of West Virginia.

Washington Street Charles Town, W. Va. 25414 Aug. 24-1t flightless female moth. The artificial attractant and close proximity of the traps are designed to confuse the male moth so he does not find a female moth; thus, mating is reduced or prevented. It is in the larval stage that the gypsy moth does its damage through repeated defoliation to oaks and other trees. Since this insect was first discovered, it has adapted well and established a reputation as a defoliator of entire forests. At present the insect's range includes much of New England and the Middle Atlantic States. Since 1968 Virginia has ex- perienced several small in- festations known or suspected of being created by the importation of egg masses on mobile homes, trailers and recreational vehicles. In each case, plant pest specialists have been able to eradicate the insect. Representatives of the two states and the USDA have met in Morgantown to begin planning a program to eradicate the gypsy moth in this section of the Ap- palachian Trail.
