BOX 1000 HINTON, WV 25951 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Debating Health Care Legislation Dear Editor: In the coming months, Congress will be debating the Clinton health care legislation, which provides abortion as a basic benefit  in the plan. Abortion is hidden under the title "medically necessary or appro- priate pregnancy related services." The Administration bill specifically allows health plans to deny treat- ment it considers not "appropriate" or outside its "practice guidelines." Who pays? You would. Under the Clinton plan, federal law would force every employer and every worker to pay premiums for at least the basic benefits package. For low income persons, the government would pay much or all of the cost using tax payers' money. Abortion is not a benefi t . Abortion kills children. How ca W e  a.lized nation accept this. On Feb. 3, 1994, a little 83-year- old nun ascended a large podium in Washington, D.C.

Lane, spokes- man for the local congregation. The program was built around the theme, "Closely Following Our Great Exemplar." The different speakers handled their parts with talks and demonstrations.

Sat. afternoon focused attention on Jesus as a model for youths. The highlight ofthe program came when Mr. Jim Mantz, an ordained minis- ter and special representative of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society presented the talk, Following Our Great Exemplar - To What Are We Led?"

Long Q IT HAPPENED DURING APRIL ALONG THE C&O LINE: Apr. 18, 1888 announcement was made that the resort and grounds at White Sulphur Springs, were sold at public auction to a Mr. Stewart of Virginia for $340,000. It is not known if it was confirmed. Apr. 20, 1903 W. A. Boley, C&O Pump Inspector, was riding engine 417 moving east pulling freight train No. 72 in charge of engineer Hyden and fireman Shepherd when it col- lided with engine 406 running west- bound light just west of Handley. Engine 406 was in charge of engi- neer Reese, fireman Walker and conductor J. B. White. Mr. White had dispatched a flagman to Paint Creek on a velocipede, following the flagman they met No. 72 expected to have been flagged. when it was evident a collision was unavoidable the engineer and fireman No. 72 jumped offand were slightly injured, Mr. Boley was at- tempting to get offwhen the trains collided. He was caught in the gang- way between engine and tank and crushed to death in a horrible man- ner. The funeral service was held at Handley and his body shipped to Aleghany Station, Va., on passenger Letters To The Editor Close Friend Of Mine Dear Mr. Long, Teresa Ward was a close friend of mine while we were growing up. Please print my letter so the family will know that a lot of people are praying for them. What amazes me is that this per- son who (allegedly) shot and killed the three women can have all the rights, and more then the normal innoence person. How many fami- lies could live offof what it costs:the state to keep a criminal behind bars for a year or years? A good percent- age of the American people can't afford medical help, but here we have an alleged murderer and he can have medical help anytime he needs it. Is this a fair policy? It's really a sad state of affairs when the government and lawyers care more for the criminal then the innoenee, isn't it? Teresa, Ida and Regina can't see the light of day. He can. Teresa, Ida and Regina are in the cold, cold ground. He should be. why didn't he pull the trigger on himself too? He really must be a coward! Does his mother cry because of the pains he feels for what he's done? I'm sure Teresa's and Ida's does. It seems to me the criminals would not be allowed to watch TV, smoke cigarettes, have exercise priveleges, etc. Shouldn't these rights be taken away when one does a crime? The Bible says AN EYE FOR AN EYE. what happened to this? A criminal has it made.

Apr. 23, 1903 five men, who had been drinking too much firewater, boarded passenger train No. 13 at Handley. Determined to run the train to suit themselves they flourished revolvers and clubs in the face of the train crew and passengers demand- ing their money and other valuables. The train crew calmly awaited their chance, disarmed the desperadoes and on arrival at Charleston, trurned them over the C&O Detective How- ard Smith for prosecution. Apr. 6, 1904 Extra 359 East in charge ofengineer W. J. Bailey, fire- man S. A. Harvey and brakeman Wills moving at a slow rate of speed when the boiler exploded at Powley's Creek, seven miles east of Hinton. The engine was practically new having just recently been built by Richmond Locomotive Works. The entire crown sheet gave way and the force of the explosion forced the cast iron offthe front end and broke out the grates. Though seriously burned, the engine crew were not fatally injured. Apr. 27, 1910, called "C&O luck," another engine exploded without a fatality. At a point near Wurtland, Ky., the engine pulling eastbound freight train No. 492, the front part sailing into a cornfield, seventy-five yards distant and the first eight cars piled up on the remainder of the wrecked engine. To the amazement of everyone, engineer W. H. Onion, fireman C. A. Hopkins and brakeman Deerdy came crawling from under the mass of destruction unharmed except for a few minor cuts and bruises. Apr. 18, 1911 Mr. A. G. Sawyers, the telegraph operator at Jerry's Run, Va., was seriously injured when he fell from the top of the depot at Alleghany, Va. He had gone to the air inspector's office over the depot to make some inquires and as he left around 10:00 o'clock fell over the railing trty-ve fget to t 9nd. Sawyers who a{ that time as Edi- tor of the Independent Herald, Hin- ton, W. Va. Apr. 5, 1912 the C&O Railway purchased the Island Creek Rail- way running between Logan, on the Guyandotte Branch, and Holden. The C&O also purchased outright the rights-of-way between Logan and Gilbert, which were owned by the Logan and Southern Railroad. Apr. 9, 1915 Extra 710 East engi- neer Walter Peace and conductor Ed. Womack pulling an eastbound train derailed the seventh through thirteenth head loads of coal on Hungarts Creek bridge just east of BigBend Tunnel. All seven cars were heavy seventy ton cars and it was thirteen hours before one of the two tracks were cleared for traffic. There were no injuries to crew members. Apr. 18, 1915 conductor H.W. Greaver, fireman W. G. Kent and conductor A.T. Holland, all of Clifton Forge, Va., sustained sprains and bodily cuts and bruises in a head on collision between two freight trains at Afton, Va. It was nothing short of a miracle that two trains going in opposite directions should collide and escape so fortunately, both in" regard to the employes and material of the company. The eastbound freight was a train of horses en route Newport News, Va., to sail for Europe to be used by the armies of the Allied Nations in the struggle against Germany and Austria. Apr. 13, 1916 a large force of men were put to work putting in a new steel bridge spanning Jackson River in the west end of the yards on the C&O Railway at Clifton Forge, Va. Apr. 12, 1930 the F.H. elements Co., and the John H. Cowyer Co., nationally known railway contrac- tors, completed the railway shops in Avis yard, Hinton. The shops had been in the west end of the west yard since 1904 where they could only handle 30 cars and with the new shops,. 80 cars could be held as they are repaired, a great improvement over the old system.

Anabolic Steroid Use by Male Athletes Body builders and other ath- letes in recent years have shown interest in a group of prescription drugs called anabolic steroids. These drugs, which also are re- ferred to as "'male hormones." are used to increase muscle mass. im- prove strength, and provide more power. They are synthetic deriva- tives of the naturally occurring male hormone testosterone. Le- gitimate medical uses for anabolic steroids include male hormone deficiency and breast cancer. Athletes who use anabolic ste- roids claim that they promote muscle mass growth. While muscle': development may be seen with large doses in men, the same is not always true in younger boys. Oth- ers have claimed that these drugs increase blood volume and the con- centration of hemoglobin ill the blood, increasing the capacity of the blood to deliver oxygen to working muscles. Researchers have shown this effect to be rather small and unreliable. And the re- sults of studies regarding the ef- fects of these drugs on aerobic capacity, increased athletic per- formance, and body composition changes have been mixed. Health experts are concerned about the adverse effects associ- ated with anabolic steroid use. Men may experience testicular atrophy, impotence, decreased production of sperm, and breast enlargement: Chmagdg in liver functiei; ciito- t sis, and liver cancer tr#ve':bierr  reported.
