In a few weeks, I will be returning to Germany after a year as a Youth for Understanding (YFU) Interna- tional Exchange student. It is hard to believe how quickly the year has gone and how hard it will be to leave Hinton and my family, after know- ing both for only a year! This past year has been the great- est, and there are many people I would like to say thanks to for making me feel welcome and at home -myhost family, Chris, Torula, Sadie and Emma Chardett-Avery, all the students and teachers and staff at Hinton High School, andmanyother members of the community who gave me the chance to live in my Ameri- can home. I hope other families in this area will decide to be YFU host families because there are many interna- tional students who are looking for a family for the next school ear, and I know they would be welcome here. It is for them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience America, and to live with an American family. You can call Dorothy Larew at 832- 6670 or Youth for Understanding at 1-800-872-0200 for information about becoming a host family or an exchange student. It could change your life, as it has mine!

SHOPMEN & CLERKS rRIKE: July, August & Sept. 1922; Part 2 of 2 parts. The night of Sat., Aug. 5th. fol- lowing the Editorial by Editor Jack R. Reed of the Hinton Daily News reported in last week's column, vio- lance broke out on the streets of Hinton by shop strikers. Three dis- tasteful assaults occurred marring the pages of Hinton history when four men were seriously beaten. The first of the assaults took place at 7:00 p.m., when a man standing in front of the Hinton Hospital was knocked down by a brick to the head thrown from the rear, in a cowardly act. The second attack took place about 8:00 o'clock the same night when another man was assaulted on Second Ave. below Temple St. by a gang of strikers and was severely beaten. About one hour later the third attack took place when two men were taken to the same place on Second Ave. and beaten badly. An observer stated the two men were thrown to the ground and "given the boot y All four victims were law abid- ing family men deeq)erately in need of work to provide for their families. The Federal Government refused to step in and bring the conflict to a just settlement. In fact, they discouraged the strikers and encouraged the railroads in everything they did. It was a no win situation for the em- ployees  the start and one can hardly blame a man, out of work with family obligatiorm, from gral ing work opportunity, especially when the division superintendent seeks them out. You may need to have a house full of hungry children to understand the minds of desper- ate people. Mon. morning, Aug. 7th., Acting President C. E. Barnette ofthe Shop Craft, asked Editor Jack R. Reed of Hinton Daily News to print a dis- claim for the unions of any part in the affair Sat. night stating that "particular care had been taken in , eyery tng, of the shop craft to gud .agerts e,h feelizs as were displays& Satvnight. "The incident caused Judge McClintic of the Fed- era] District Court for SouthernWest Virginia to issue an injunction against the strikers in an attempt to control further violance. But that very night, Mon., a group of shopmen followed some railroad workers around the city taunting them. Afor following them for some time, a crowd gathered at Johnson's drug store. One of the strikers, the one so handy with a brick from the blind side, led the way into the drug store and made threatening remarks in violation oftheinjunction. He was arrested the next morning, Aug. 8th., brought before U.S. Commissioner E. C. Eagle and released under $1,000.00 bend. At 3:30 o'clock that evening Editor Jack R. Reed of the Hinton Daily News was arrested by U.S. Marshal Workman and a party of deputies on a charge of having violated the federal statute against interference with the mails. He was taken before U.S. Commissioner E. C. Eagle where he waived prelimi- nary examination and was held to a special term of Judge McClintic's court, set for Sept. 5th. Bond was fixed at $2,500.00 and in default, Mr. Reed waremanded to the county jail to await action of the court. He was in jaul about four hours when a party of prominent Hinton citizens, among them T.H. Lilly, Attorney A.D. Daly, W. P. Bowling and others appeared before Commissioner Eagle offering bond. The bond was accepted from Mr. Lilly and the edi- tor released. The specified cause of the arrest of Mr. Reed was said tobe his editorial of Aug. 5th. The only statement Mr. Reed would make concerning his arrest was that, "he regrets very much that a charge of violating the law had been placed against him and regrets thathis writings should be construed as obstructing or interferring with the administration of the law." Continuing he said, "He regrets having caused the government in- convenience, if he has so done, and that he stands first for law and order and has no personal axe to grind." Mr. Reed appeared before Judge McClinticin Charleston, Tues., Sept. 5th. teanswer the charge of obstruct- ing justice, brought as the result of his editorial criticizing the Deputy U.S. Marshals who came to Hinton as the result of the rail strike. His case was, upon motion of the de- fense, continued until the next regu- lar term of Federal Court, to be held in Charleston in Nov. He was re- leased on his own recognizance. The case against the ruffian shop strikers arrested for disobeying the injunction and with taking part in a disturbance in connection with the Spring Induction Ceremony Held The Concord College Delta Gamma Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi recently held their Spring Induction ceremony in the college State Room. Among those inducted was Audrey Lynn Thomas of Lewisburg. Audrey is a senior majoring in Elementary Education K-8 and Early Childhood Education.

A jail sentence of six months was handed down but the sentence was suspended for thirty days to give him a chance to get an appeal in his case. Others arrested for the rio- lance was to be heard by Judge McClintic later. Around the middle'of Sept. a partial peace agreement of the rail- roads and the striking shopmen was implementedand employees started going back to work on some of the railroads. The agreement did not include the clerks, therefore, the strike continued on the C&O and the N&W. The shop men on these two properties refused to return to work until a settlement was reached with the clerks also. Not having been around during the labor conflict we cannot sympa- thize with either, the company, those on strike or those wanting to work. Looking back to the beginning ofthe "great depression" the strike seems to have been ill advised. The sad thingis that after 72 years, some are still referred to as'1922 men." It will take another generation, the end of a century, to erase the strike from everyone's mind. Sheriff's Report Prepared by the Sheriff's Dept. The following people were jailed last week.

A stroke is the result of inad- equate blood flow to the brain Major causes of a stroke include partial or complete blockage of blood vessels in the brain or a burst and leaking blood vessel. A stroke can leave its victim with permanent or temporary memory loss and difficulty speaking, dif- ficulty walking, blurred vision, and dizziness. Treatment of stroke begins with immediate hospitalization and a stabilizing of the blood pressure. Medications may be ad- ministered to control seizures and reduce swelling in the brain. Blood thinner medicines may be given'to:lim the progress of the t]'ol,: br:t0 prevent the' odcur' fence of new strokes. Stroke prevention involves controlling high blood pressur e and other risk factors such as smoking and high blood choles- terol. Oral medicines used to pre- vent strokes include aspirin and ticlopidine (Ticlid). Studies have shown that ticlopidine is slightly more effective in preventing stroke than is aspirin. However, the American Heart Association still recommends aspirin for stroke prevention-primarily be- cause it costs considerably less ($10 to $20 per year versus $1,000 for ticlopidine). Other ad- vantages of aspirin over ticlopidine is that aspirin is given only once a day and periodic blood tests are not required.
