8 The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder February 17, 1977 G S C to stage "The Miracle "The Miracle Worker." the play by William Gibson that is coming to the Glenville State College Theatre on Feb. 17.18 and 19. is a dramatization of the turning point in the life of one of the world's great figures -- Helen Keller. The play begins at 8 p.m. in the college auditorium. Probably everyone knows her name. knows that despite the seemingly overwhelming handicap of having been struck deaf and blind in her infancy, so that she could not normally learn to talk either, she became one of America's most celebrated writers, lecturers and humanitarians. "The Miracle Worker" tells the moving story of how a heroic young woman named Annie Sullivan managed to lead Helen Keller. at the age of seven, out of her cage of darkness, and to teach her to communicate with the world through a system of hand-signals. Beth Steidl. Senior Music major. will have the role of this devoted teacher who was engaged to attempt the "impossible" task of reaching the gifted, undisciplined youngster's mind.

The rugged winter weather this year hasn't kept everyone indoors, as evidenced by these fishermen taking advantage of the 5 to 9-inch thick ice on Stonecoal Lake near Weston. While they and two other hardy anglers were the only ice fishermen on the lake this day, others have been reported fishing for the first time in years on Sutton Reservoir and other impound- ments. Here John Collins of Glenvllle sets out one of two tip-ups over an artificial crappie bed. When a, flsh takes the bait, a flag-tipped wire on the tip-up springs erect alerting the angler to the strike. Bob Deal and Stan Meseroll, both of Glenvme, also were on hand and tried their luck by jigging through the ice for trout, walleye and panfish. AVOID HOME - CANNED FOOD WHICH HAS FROZEN Recent frigid weather may have frozen your home canned food, but do not put the jars near heaters to thaw--there are safer ways to handle them. says Rome Adkins. Gilmer County 4-H Extension Agent. The freezing of home canned food does not cause food spoilage unless the seal is damaged or the jar is broken. If the jar seals are unbroken, store jars in a cool place and check jar seals periodically. Jars are more likely to break during freezing ff their bands are in place so remove the bands if you have not already done so in order that future freezes will not cause breakage, Jar bands do not need to remain in place for proper retention, in fact, canning directions recommend removal of jar bands the day after canning. First, inspect jars for cracks, especially hair-line ones. Discard cracked jars and their contents. Next, carefully invert jars to check for seal. If a jar's seal is broken, but contents are still frozen or have come ice crystals, eat the food the same day, Or you may wish to remove the contents and put the food into freezer bags with as little handling as possible and place in your freezer until needed for use. Home canned food which has become frozen should be prepared for eating the same way as are nonfrozen varieties. This means boiling the food 10 to 15 minutes before tasting to eliminate the possibility of botulism poisoning. Frozen canned food may not taste as good as properly stored types: therefore in an unheated storage place, protect canned food by wrapping jars in paper. or covering them with a blanket. PLAY IT SAFE wrrH PRESCRIPTION DRUGS Prescription medicines can do much to help you if you're sick. But the same drugs can do a lot of harm ff they are taken improperly. Sometimes one doctor wilt prescribe a medicine to help relieve your pain. And another doctor will give you another prescription to help get rid of a stuffed-up head. Taken at the same time, these medicines, or other combinations of drugs could make you sick. This can happen because neither doctor knew about the other medicines you were taking. Or, it can happen if you take an old prescription with a new one. Some nurses and doctors suggest that you bring along all your prescriptions when you visit your doctor. That way the doctor will know what you're already taking. When you visit the doctor, don't be afraid to ask about medicines. The doctor can tell you which ones may have side effects, which ones should not be taken together, and which drugs to avoid if you want to drive. one of the gree recent times, not 0tll where it ran for every other major in foreign lands.
