Parents Should Make Certain Children Do Not Have Hearing Loss With a new school year rapidly approaching, parents should make certain that their school- age children are not suffering from undetected hearing losses, according to the Beltone Crusade for Hearing Con- servation. Unrecognized hearing impairments can be the cause of both behavioral and learning problems among school children, the Crusade officials stress. Persons who say they 'hear everything that is going on around them are only kidding themselves, according to the Crusade. People only know what they do hear -- and not what they don't hear, Crusade officials point out. This is a primary reason why many persons are suffering from undetected hearing losses. A small child who is not usually awakened by a loud sound may be suffering from a hearing loss, warns the Beltone Crusade. Such children should be given a complete hearing test. While a hearing test will neither prevent nor alleviate a hearing loss, it usually is the first vital step toward obtaining the help that is available to most hearing impaired persons, according to the Beltone Crusade. Make Today Count Make Today Count Will hold its monthly meeting on Sunday, September 10 at 3 p.m. in the Asbury United Methodist Church Education Building. Make Today Count is a nation- wide organization formed to help those who face serious life- threatening illness, their families and friends. Started by cancer patient Orville Kelly, the organization has grown tremendously in the last few years and has been a great benefit to those who share some of the problems that long-term illness brings. The Jefferson County chapter of Make Today Count, which is a first or West Virginia, was organized almost a year ao and welcomes all who are interested in joining with them to call either Bessie Kelley, 725-6064, or Naomi Moses, 725-5695 Retires From Park Service In 35th Year Mter 34 years and three (3) months of federal service, all in National Park Service, James M Quinn, Jr., above, has decided to retire. A native of Alexandria, Virginia, he graduated from the local high school, and after several years in private industry he decided on a vocation with the National Park Service. July 27, 1944, in Washington D.C., James Quinn reported for duty as janitor with the Division of Natural History. One of Quinn's first bosses was the then assistant chief, later chief, of Museum Branch, Ralph L. Lewis, also retired and now a resident of Harpers Ferry, and whom Mr. Quinn would see nearly everyday until retirement. After a brief assignment to Manassas National Battlefield Park to accomplish physical improvements to buildings and utilities he was assigned to Custis-Lee Mansi6n where he remained until May 1970, then transferred to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park as gardener for the entire National Park Service complex. While at Custis-Lee Mansion and the Harpers Ferry Park, Quinn received several "special achievement awards" and numerous letters of com- mendation from such distinguished people as Robert Kramer, assistant attorney general, and others. His most cherished award is a plaque presented to him July 14, 1978, that was inscribed "To James Quinn for his continuing support and interest in our Harpers Ferry Y.C.C." James Quinn and his wife, Dolley Faye, formerly lived in Orchard Hills near Charles Town, but they now reside in their new home just four (4) mile s north of Martinsburg, West Virginia, on the Shepherdstown pike.
