Va., Gets Try In New York CHARLESTON -- It seems an independent research group, unlikely that officials of New the Urban Institute of York City Would turn to West Virginia for advice on how to handle a sticky urban problem, such as how to reduce the error rate in their welfare case load, but that is exactly what has happened. Earlier this summer two of- ficials of the West Virginia Department of Welfare, using Washington, D.C., published a report urging the federal government to adopt the Selective Case Action System on a national scale. The researchers described the system as being "far more advanced than any we have seen and...any that exist" data collected by their New York New York City was selected as counterparts, ran information test site for two reasons: HEW through the department's error- convinced of Selective Case prone analysis system to see ifction's worth for a relatively the system can be adapted for hall case load. but wanted to New York City.  it in action in a large city; Developed in 1973 from modelsad New York City officials are used by industry and publicmcerned about what one of- polling organizations, thecial described as an "un- computerized system, calledlanageable" case load.

Va Old And New Book Titles On The List News of the /honth from the Old Charles Town Library shows that to continue the fiction best seller list, the year 1897 brought the great novel Quo Vadis, the famous story of the early Christians by the author with a long Polish name. Second on the list was The Choir Invisible by Allen. The year is 1898 and Remember the Maine was the slogan that swept the nation. Caleb West by Smith and Hugh Wynne by Mitchell were the best sellers. Among authors of the year were Kipling, Kate Douglas Wiggin and Mark Twain. Twain's books were issued by subscription companies who sold from house to house and never appeared on the list because no one knew just how many were sold. It's time for 1978's new titles: Sisters and Strangers by Van Slyke; The Wanting of Levine by Halberstam ; Wilford's Daughters by Manners and Marblehead by Thompson. The Old Charles Town Library has hundreds of paperbacks that can be taken out without a card and returned at anytime. AJlyone who likes to tuck one or two paperbacks in a purse or i place several or many on a bedside stand for night reading should come in and browse through this collection. New books are added by donation every week, soAhat new titles are always available. Something for children to look forward to is a "really and truly" magic show at the end of September. That first month of school might be rough but on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. a big surprise should help. Children of all ages are invited, so keep the event, date and place in mind. BLUE RIDGE ACRES Libby Cooper Dial 725-5925 ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Pauline Vale had a short note from Ellen Thomas, former resident, saying that she and Tommy Were settled into their apartment in Arizona and anxiously awaiting the com- pletion of their new home, which is apparently under way. They seem to be very happy in their new location. Our covered dish supper was a success- very well attended and all sorts of tasty dishes. Our young folks were tickled about their awards and the horse racing event went over big, also. Cal LaMotte was the announcer - B. J. LaMotte had the ticket window and Roy Lerch did all the computing of odds. Everyone seemed to have lots of fun and we even made a little money. We extend our sympathy to Bill Steuart on the recent loss of his brother George, who had resided in Baltimore, Md.
