2 The Glenvllle Democrat/Pathfinder May 14, 1976 8its and Pieces by Chuck Cavallo 00000000000000 Last week's photo feature of early Glenville and Gilmer County seems to have appealed to a great many residents. In fact, I have received so much favorable response that I will attempt to put together another such feature in the near future. One such photo was of an automobile full of people and even more from the curb looking on. We can identify them thanks to Mrs. J.D. Cruise (former Thelma Craddock) of Clarksburg. Mrs. Cruise believes (this is the only one she isn't sure about) the driver is Roy Beall. The man on the far right with the tie on is Mrs. Cruise's uncle, Harvey Craddock, who she says was the first person to bring an automobile to Glenville. The woman next to Uncle Harvey is his wife, Eva Brannon Craddock. She is holding their son, Hugh. The woman on the far left is Mrs. Fred Whiting, the former Frankie Craddock. She is holding, Mrs. Cruise believes, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Craddock's daughter, Susan Pauline. i ..... Sure sign of springl Z revisions Public opinion is needed.

[irefighter and public safety officer Health Systems AEency discloses benefit act passes house firefighting and law enforcement, and both professions are vital to public needs, it is in the public interest to upgrade employment benefits in these professions." In the past, certain forms of legislation, such as the Fire Research and Safety Act of 1968 and the Omni- bus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, have attamvted to address the dangers inherent in the firefighting and law enforcement professions by providing Federal financial assistance to state and local governments. This assistance has generally been applied toward research projects designed to find ways of reducing the incidents of death and personal injury in both professions, the rate of occurrence of fires and crimes, and the property losses associated with both. "What this legislation does is acknowledge the fact that in these professions, there are day-to-day occupational hazards, often of a severe nature, and that there must be some attempt to address these risks from the standpoint of the individual who is willing to accept them in his daily work," Slack concluded. :. Congressman John Slack today ounced House passage of the refighters Benefits Act and the blic Safety Officers Benefits Act, th of which would provide a$50,000 lump sum death benefit to the rviving dependents of professional and volunteer firemen and certain blic safety officers such as cemen and correctional officers @ha lose their lives as a result of rsonal injuries sustained in the line duty. Both bills would be retroactive tO October 11, 2.072. In addition to the provisions for pelrment of the $50,000 lump sum, both i llls provide that in cases of hardship. an interim benefit payment of $3,000 Would be made to the surviving ependents. Such a payment would be arded in a case of need where the 0,000 benefit appeared imminent, t where Final determination had not n made. Under this provision, the tarim payment would be deducted om the Final full benefit payment.

ARNOLD PRESIDENT/PUBLIsHER CHUCK CAVALLO EDITOR JOAN LAYNE OFFICE MANAGER public meeting will be held in the Council Chambers at the City Hall in Elkins. West Virginia at 7:00 p.m. on May 26, 1976. The meeting is being sponsored jointly by the Region VII Planning and Development Council and the Health Planning Council of Region VII. The two Councils are involved for different reasons. The Health Planning Council will be replaced by the Health Systems Agency. Responsibilities for health plan preparation or providing planning assistance to communities and for reviewing health service proposals will shift from the Health Planning Council to the Health Systems Agency. The Planning and Develop- ment Council is being asked by the Health Systems Agency to provide it with regional input to a statewide health plan. A first proposal for a Health Systems Agency was made to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (DHEW) in January. In April DHEW disapproved the proposal. Changes in the proposal have been made. The Health Systems Agency made these changes to satisfy DHEW's criticisms of its original proposal. The HSA also wants to follow recom- mendations made by citizens at earlier regional public meetings. That earlier Region VII meeting was held February 14, 1976, in Buckhannon. Steve Crawford of Elkins, will represent the Health Systems Agency at the May 26 meeting in Elkins. Mr., Crawford is a member of the Health Systems Agency Board of Directors. He was appointed to this position by Governor Arch Moore, Jr,, in November, 1975. Interested individuals may review written materials prior to the public meeting. These will be available at the following places by May 20: The County Clerks' offices in Region VII - Elkins, Parsons, Philippi, Buckhannon, Sutton, Glenville, Weston. The Planning and Development Council of Region VII in the County Courthouse in Buckhannon, W. Va. The Health Planning Council of Region VII, Basement of City Hall, Elkins. Newspaper Ads Newspapers, as everyone knows, played an important part in our nation's found- ing. But what some people may not realize is that the advertisements in colonial journals were as histori- cally significant as the news columns. On May 8, 1704, the Boston News Letter carried the first ad, which sought to sell or lease a Long Island estate. And when America's first daily news- paper, the Pennsyhnia Packet & Advertiser, be- gan operations on Septem- ber 24, 1784, 10 of its 16 columns were devoted to ads. Benjamin Franklin, of course, was very ad-con- scious, and his Pennsyl- vania Gazette regularly carried offers for medicine, sugar, tea, cotton, wool, hardware, false teeth, and ad(hdsnCe lessons. Most of the were written by Franklin himself, who in- troduced bigger headlines in his advertising columns long before he used the innovation for news stories. Even George Washington wrote and responded to ads. In an effort to sell some property, Washington placed an ad in the M.ry- lmd Advocate d Commer- cial Advertiser, in which he wrote of "the luxuriance of the soil, convenience to river transportation, and the inevitable rise in value if a new government is established." And he fre- quently bought cloth for and History himself and his wife through ads which ap- peared in New York news- papers. But ads were not only important to commerce in the colonies; they were also important to the cause of independence. Much of the recruiting of soldiers for the Revolu- tionary War was done t h r o u g h newspaper ads, many of which carried George Washington's name prominently. One typical ad invited "all brave, healthy, able-bodied young men" to join "George Washington for the de- fence of the liberties and independence." And an ad aimed at raising a navy of privateers called for "all those jolly fellows who love their country to re- pair immediately to Gov- ernor Hancock's wharf." The recruitment ads told of "liberal and generous encouragement" to enlist, namely "a bounty of twelve dollars and an annual and fully sufficient supply of handsome clothing, together with sixty dollars a year in gold." There was alzo men- lion of the opportunity "'to spend a few happy years seeing this beautiful con- tinen t.'" Colonial newspapers, like modern ones, survived be- cause of ttt advertise- ments they carried. And together with the editorial columns of our early pa. pers, they helped the ,ra- tion itself to survive. Mrs. Cruise is the daughter of Craddock, a former Editor of the Democrat. He also worked for Pathfinder prior to becoming Editor Democrat.
