Dec. 15, 1959 The Spirit of Jefferson-Advec&te Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Editor:- I would like to speak up on some current items. .First. I belieVe Ranson is to be commended on walti~g till last week to put up their Christmas decorations as d~d many buslaess places. This ideal of putting them up in November seems stupid to me. They get dried up and dead looking by Christmas and mean less to the viewer. I heard a worn an say in Winchester on Dec. 1st that ~hey could save money on Christmas decorations by leaving them up all yeax. May I hope that Ranson will patch up the pot holes m 5th Ave nue and 3rd Ave. especially before they get worse, We know that ,l~nson is hard up for money but it would appear to be more econ omical to 0arch little holes in a street before they get to be big holes. The next step after big holes is a gravel street with little or no blacktop. The BalVlmore and Ohio Rail- road is to be commended for fix ing the crossing over their right- away ,for the street that goes a- round Whitmore Lumber Co. on its East ee~d. I hope tlaat l~hey will soon softe~ their hearts and fix the crcxsslng on N. George St. adjacent to Hyman Viener and Sons and Charle~ Town Oraln and Peed. It is my hope that the s~te will enforce the no parking ban be. eween the inCersectio~ of rqk!te 17 and fifth Ave. and rouge 340. It does 11o good to put up no paxk- ~ng signs and then not to en~oroe them. I would like to see a stop slgn at the new entrance to the old race track o~n route 340 and also at the e~ntrance'bo the horse roans parking lot adjacent to the be-ad o[ the old rave track where the track for racing horses is next to route 17. It might prevent~ an accident like I was involved in. Many drivers come out of ttvIs lot without stopping. I* have read wi~h interc~ H, W. M.'s columns on the Democratic party. He stated sometime ago that all worthwhile things accom plished in the last 5 years were due to the Democrats. I didn't County Fair gave me a laugh this full. It said vote Democratic for lower taxes. I don't recall the De- mocrats cutting, but very few tax es in the last 5 years. Speaking of the unemployment situation in W. Va., it is undoubtedly bad, but what is the real answer. The. qual fficatl(ms for surplus food which 250,000 people in W. Va. are get- tint have been libera~ized recent- ly. Just what can any governor do in a case like this without the state legisla, ture acting. A road program in the last legislature would of helped provide jobs. Good roads attr~tct industry too, as transportation is important in our economy. Of course any pro- gram will take money axed the Democratic Legislature will have to appropriate it and make it a- vall~.ble. Yours sincerely, Angus McDonald Box 25t Charles Towr~, W. Va. December 6, 1959 Mr. Max Brown, Editor Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Sir: On Sunday, December 6, I went Into a dr,~agstore w~ich sells prod- uc~s almost exclusively under a famous naxae trademark. I re- quested two articles and because I rejected one of the articles, I was proml~lY insulted and denied the right :to purchase anything. My indiVidual rights s~d my rights as a consumer to purchase free of choice were violated. It certainly seems to me that a busl~ess operating and receiving its income from the comity is not bhly doing a disservice to its future survival but to the com- m,,mity in which it ,serves, Cordially yourS, Mrs. ~hirley Tolbert Pittsburgh, Pa.

Watch the cars barrel past on one of these roads. More often than not, the space between them is half or less than a minimum safe spread of 75 feet. They're moving at speeds ranging from 30 to '55 miles an hour. Even the most alert driver scan ni~g con~tions ahead can seldom see more than four car lengths in front of him. Once in a while, on a sweeping curve with open view. he can size up things for half a mile or so. That means any driver in "the mill race has to have a large a- mount of .luck to keep out of trou ble. One slip by one motorist a~y where in the ~ine and the "chain reaction" starts. How bad that reaction can be was emphasized one foggy morn ing recently when 59 cars piled up in a few minutes on a broad "modern" parkway. O~e crash a- lone involved 20 vehicles, most de- molished. We seem to be Itfite a way ~rom having eight and 10 lane roads to slt)w down this chase and widen the space 4)etween cars. In the meantime, ~bout all you can do is keep trigger-alert and remember that the edge of safety is thin. (Hagerstown Morning-Herald) If the definition the U. S. Cen- sus Bureau has employed since 1950 is used, a farm is any .prop- erty measuring t'hree acres or more that produces at least $150 worth of agricultural products a year. A smaller proPerty yielding farm .products selling for $150 or more also qualifies as a farm. ~Now the government has rede- fined the term and isustng ,uew criteria for its 17th census of ag- riculture. The new yardstick says a farm must be I0 or more acres in size, with actual sales of farm products of at least $50 a year. For a smaller tract to qualify, act- ual sales must top $2~0 a year. Because more and more farm lands axe untilled and because the trend toward consolidating small farms into 'big farms is c,~,ntinu-.~ ing, the new criteria will result in a sharp drop in the total.
