BOX 1000 HINTON, WV 25951 Q LETTERS TO THE EDITOR FIGHT NOT OVER Dear Editor, The recent headline that said, "APCOWithdraws Powerline Appli- cation" may have led some tobelieve that the fight was over and that APCO had fled back to Roanoke lick- ing its wounds. Not so. The fight to save our farms, gardens, wells, families and fr. dom rages on. APCO, due to its deep pockets and limi tleu wealth, is plan. ning new routes and new avenuse of attack. Once the U. Senate passes the Rahall New River Bill, APCO plans to go back to the Hinton area. APCO has instructed Virginia Tech contractor, Ben Johnson to begin new routing. Bud Mitchell, of Craig Co. says this will mean that Summers County residents will get another chance to discuss "Charlie Simmon's northen Rt." Probably across the top of Bluestone Dam. Speaking of the Shanldins Ferry crossing site, Johnson told the Vir- ginia New Castle Record that, =Ewe no longer have that as an optioztwe will have to look at alternatives We have reopened and begun scoring other possible croings of the river which we originally ruled out be- cause they were too impacting." So, contrary to rumor and public impression, APCO has not given up the battle. It will be at least another year before this threat to life, lib- To My Special Lady Dear Editor Teresa Kellar I know that I have said and done a lot of things to hurt you and make you mad at me since we have been together and I am very sorry for saying and doing those things. Teresa Kellar, you have made me a very happy man and I ain't really got very many ways to show you just how much that I really love you so I hope that this person will give you some kind of idea of just how much I do love you Poem To You Teresa Kellar You Are With Me You are with me my love, Every moment of every hour, Your beauty is as precious as a dove, And your touch as soft as a flower, Your heart is the greatest that ever beat, When I found you my life became whole I give you my heart, mybodyand soul, as I sit here in this dull place I think of a ross garden in full bloom, And sraddenly I see your face and it brighten's up the room. You are with me in every thing that I do every second of every day, I can only hope that you are feeling this way too, I know that true love has finely come my way since the first day that I got together with you.

During the hear. ings in Richmond, Va. in July it was revealed that two-thirdsofthe power from the line will go to Penn., Md. and NJ. and only one-third to the Richmond area. Find regards, Jack Frazier Box 610 Petsretown, WV 24963 Concerning Character Dear Editor, I am writing concerning William (Billy) Harvey's character as I know him. I feel I know the Harvey's well. As they (The Harvey's) are indeed loyal friends and good neighbors. Billy Harvey got along well with everyone so far as I know. He always treated him like a lady or a sister. Billy Harvey was never an ag- gressive person toward me I never did see Billy drink alcohol neither did I hear him swear. He seemed to be an all around good person. I went to school with Billy's younger sister. I spent the night or nights there and there was never any problems when I was a guest in Billy's mother's home. As a teenager Billy was a nice boy and as he got older I thought of Billy Harvey as a young man, with a bright future. It makes me sad to know he has lost his freedom. It is really hard for me to believe he would harm or flee. If he did I feel he did so in self- defense. I remain a friend to Billy and his faniily. And I pray for Billy as well as I pray for the family who is bereaved. Forever a friend. Donna K. Vest P. O.

At a crossing of two roads where passenger trains of each road were scheduled ten minutes apart the earlier train was running ten minutes late and his headlight mis- taken for the proceed signal for the other train and there was a terrible accident where many lives were lost and bodies mangled. During the early 1900's there was a public outcry for a change of color sense used by the railroads joined by Prof. George M. Stratton of Johns Hopkins University. In an article written for Popu]ar Science Monthly, Prof. Stratton goes on to tell about the severity of a locomotive engineer's work when he said: "He must know that his outside lights are burning bright, that the water in the boiler is suftcient, that the air-brakes are in perfect work- ing order. He must from moment to moment glance at the hands of his watch and know exacly where he is upon the road. And yet all the while his eyes must hardly be taken from the darkness into which his engine rushes to catch the first glimmdr of the signal which is his guide. "Since the safety of many lives thus depends upon these signal lights and upon their sudden clearness tea mind that must attend to many things at once, the symbols should COLOR SIGNALS TO GUIDE THE ENGINEERS: During the early years ofthe 20th century, the railroad industry used a vastly different color light system than is used today. I doubt there are any railroaders living who remem- ber when white meant safety i.e., proceed at maximum authorized speed and green meant proceed with caution. Red and blue have always meant the same as also has green and white in combination for a flag stop. The color white for proceed was the cause ofmany train wrecks where lives were lost and also placed a severe burden upon the train engi- neers to distinguish a signal meant for their train from someone walk- ing along the railroad track carrying a lantern or a light from a farm house window. One such accident occurred at "qdttenton Junction, Mass., when the engineer mistook a lantern hanging from the gate at a street crossing tbr his signal to pro- ceed and crashed into another train. There was another accident on the Harrisburg and San Antonio rail- road. The railway signal in this cas was exactly in line with a light shin- ing from a high bay window, and when the signal light itself was out one night the en,nneer mistook the light in the window tbr his signal IN THE LIBRARY Because of the generosity of some loyal patrons we have some lovely new books on our shelves. Among them are: From George MacDonald's storyteller series; The Fisherman's Lady. The Marquis' Secret. The Shepherd' Castle. The Tutor's First Love. The Baron's Apprenticeshio. These historical romances remind folks who read them of the Janette Oke's series which, thanks to Faye Miller, we now have in hardback! Faye also donated some of the ever popular V. C. Andrews books. These books, which are fbr the most part only available in paperback, circulate over and over until they fall apart. It is always wonderful to have some fresh new copies to "beeff up our collection. In memory of Edith Cundiff, we have a copy of De mse Giardina's The UnQuiet Earth. This novel, a follow up of her bcxk Stormin Heaven. is set in the coal fields of W.Va. and tells the story of the people there who "struggle to maintain their lives against the brutn] forces foppression, neg]ect,'poverty and disaster .. .. Books were not the only thing given tothe Library in the last week or so. With the receipt of a'$400 donation from the Levine Foundation as well as several smaller donauons from some other wonderful folks, everyone's favorite Inch Worm managed to wSggle his way up $2800! And to think he just started his climb on Aug. 31. Big thanks to all who have helped out so far. And .... speaking of helping out. The Friends of the Library are around and about selling raffle tickets. A chance to win a $100 bill. This is the first of our annual fund raisers We hope to realize $500 from this effort. So, if someone approaches you about buying a ticket, please say yes. We need a lot of help this year. SCHOOL MENU Fri. Sept. 25 Cheese Pizza, Cook's Choice of Vegetable or Salad, Fresh Fruit, Milk.

Yet the present night signals, given by colored lights beside the track, upon many roads. .. are open to gTave objections. For the human eye at its best and without abnormality is liable to mistake the signal hues at night, especially when the outward condi- tions are anywise untoward, whether by subsistance or the low burning of the lamp or by fog or smoke or storm. And even when the colors are per- ceived with perfect accuracy the use ofthe common oil light called'white', as one of the signal colors, throws a dangerous task upon the engineer, inasmuch as it requires him to take constant heed lest he regard some window lamp or other meaningless light along his course as a sign that all is well and in consequence rush onward to his trains destruction. In regard to the use of white as part of the signal code at night the danger from this source has long been recog- nized by leading signal engineers. .. he advantage under which the red danger signal labors is, however, quite insufficiently expressed by saying that the ruby glass often vir- tually destroys fully four-fifths of the light from a lantern flame al- ready none too bright, and to this extent increases the liability that the most momentous of the signals will at some crisis be seen toolate or not at all. Even the remaining por- tion is often far less effectual upon the eye than its physical quality would lead us to expect. Ifby reliable devices of the labo- ratory, a semaphone light showing white be gradually reduced in bright- ness, a point can easily be found where the eye, grown accustomed to the dark, can just perceive the light. And when, for comparison, a rail- road ruby glass, or'rounds/is placed before the lamp, the observer now obtains no conscious impression at all. But, the brightness coming through the glass (as one might expect, knowing that the red glass is previous, say, to but one-fifth of the light of the flame). It is necessary to increase it no less than fourteen- fold. Such an increase is the least I have found necessary when experi- menting at night over a stretch of more than 4,000 feet, and when smoke gave a relative advantage to the red. Within the laboratory the red has never been perceptible until the light was increased 18 times the brightness required for white. Such, however, are the most favorable experiments, and are by no means average ones. On the average, it is necessary to increase the light as much as 30 times before any con- seious impression at all is made by the light through the red glass.  We do not know the date a change in color light rules on the C. & O were adopted, however, a change was made using Green for 'Clear, proceed and Red, stop White is only used to convey hand signals.

According to a number of recent articles in psychiatric journals, lithium probably is the most effective agent being used in the prevention of manic depres- sion. Most persons who take lithium experience a lag time from when they start the medicine until the time it reaches its maximum effe tiveness, in preventing, mataie or. depressive behavior. The lag time may range from a few days to two weeks. The American Hospital Formulary Service indicates that lithium is more effective ,n pre- venting mania and hyperactivity than in preventing depression. Lithium ,s one of a few medi- cines that have a narrow therapeu- tic index. This means that the range from an effective therapeutic blood level to a toxic level is not very wide. Therefore, blood levels of lithium must be monitored care- fully during therapy. Mild toxicity may include nausea and vomiting, while severe toxicity may result in muscle rigidity, seizures, and irregular heart beat. Lithium may interact with several medicines including certain diuretics, non- steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and certain antidepressants. If you take lithium, discuss its use with your physician and pharmacist. DAIRY QUEEN ON THE HINTON BY-PASS HOME OF THOSE DELICIOUS HOT DOGS. SPECIALS Sale Reg. Wed. Hamburger 99 Thurs.
