SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1. 1988 lO Letters to the Editor Continued from Page 4 the longest tenure, serving until Oc- tober 1, 1947, a period of more than 27 years. He was succeeded by Oliver S. Ikenberry. Going back still further John Knut- ti served as chief administrative of- ficer, then called principal, from 1903 to 1909. He was only 31 at the time of his appointment and died while in of- rice. Knutti was a popular young man who was stricken in the prime of life by typhoid fever while on a trip to Morgantown. Knutti was succeeded by Thomas C. Miller, a former state superintendent of schools, who was the first person to hold the title of president. He resign- ed the office in 1920 and was succeed- ed by W.H White, who had previous- ly been superintendent of schools in Logan County. Sincerely, A.G. Slonaker Shepherdstown, W. Va. WATCHDOG COUNCIL! To the Editor: I am very upset that Ranson would even TIIINK about curtailing citizen input in the council meetings. What's going on in Ranson? Maybe more people need to attend Ranson Council meetings. Maybe more people need to attend Ranson Council meetings TO WATCHDOG ACTIVITIES. Mayor Hamill and Ms. Hatzer - Why the big hurry? June 1989 will be here all too soon and we wont and can't forget - we won't hide! Thelma D. Miller Ranson FIRST FEAST? To the Editor: I do not know who wrote your recent editorial on Thanksgiving. I can only hope it was not written by a Virginian nor a West Virginian. Not much factual history is being taught today. At any rate I was dismayed to find that "the purpose of Thanksgiving remains relatively un- changed from the first celebration in Plymouth Colony," as stated in your editorial. A thorough check will reveal the Plymouth Colony celebrated in 1620 while the first Thanksgiving * was celebrated in 1619 at Berkeley Planta- tion in Virginia. Even President Ken- nedy admitted this was true but the current wire services and newspapers continue to ignore the facts. I write to plead with you to print the truth so that coming generations will .not be misled regarding their heritage. As a displaced Virginian and also as a student of history, I will hope that my CUBS SAY THANKS To the Editor: The Cub Scouts of Pack 42, Den 7, would like to thank the Spirit of Jeffer- son for the November 11 tour.

Fuller Torrey's book, "Surviving Schizophrenia: A Family Manual", to Dr. Irving F. Tucker, coordinator of the Shepherd College Psychology Department, as a token of apprecia- tion for public service performed by the department. Another copy was presented to the college library. Dr. Torrey is a well-known advocate _ of care for the mentally ill who has ap- peared on "60 Minutes" and "Phil Donahue". His book includes sum- maries of the mental health care systems in each state with addresses and resources that families and vic- Unibed Wag rims can use as reference. The staff of the Shepherd College Psycholog'/Depar tment includes three licensed py,hologists. They are Dr. Tucker: ProfesSor Jeffrey Chleb- nikov, also employed by the Eastern Panhandle Mental Health Center, Inc.; and Professor Harold Slaughter, also in private practice in Charles Town with Shepherd graduate Boniva Miller. Regular part-Ume staff members are a licensed family therapist, the Rev. Warren Watts and a certified dance therapist, Lu Ann Corraro. Two psychiatrists, Dr. Hiram Sizemore and Dr. Allen Levy, teach, respectively, neuropsychology and psychodrama for the department. Two EPAMI respresentatives, Peggy Brenner and Margaret HallS- day, made the presentation and ex- pressed concern about a lack of ade- quate care facilities for the mentally ill compared to adjacent states. A se- cond concern, also emphasized by Tor- rey, is that because schizophrenics have an ability to interview well, they can mislead mental health profes- sionals into thinking they are function- ing normally. Then, the family has the additional burden of not being believ- ed by the professional. EPAMI meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Mar- H VALLEY R D W A R E co. We've Got You Covered!
