Rqional EMS developing hospital guide A fingertip reference book on the emergency capabilities of hospitals in the 13-county area of the Region VI and VII planning and development councils is now being prepared, according to the Region VI P and DC office in Fairmont. "'The Emergency Medical Techni- cian (EMT) arriving at the scene of an accident or sudden illness needs to be able to determine immediately which hospital can best meet the needs of a critically ill patient," explained D.M. LaFauci, EMS project director. The new communications manual will enable them to do this. It will be made available to EMTs. ambulance providers and other emergency personnel. Physicians, nurses and allied health personnel are visiting the hospitals now to categorize each hospital's ability to handle seven different critical patient groups: trauma, cardiac, neonatal, poisoning, burns, behavioral and spinal cases. The hospitals are being evaluated on three levels of care: basic, intermediate, and advanced. However. LaFauci stressed that the study "is not trying to prove that one hospital's emergency room is better than another hospital's." LaFauci explained that "one hospital may be advanced in treating high-risk infants and be only basic in treating spinal injuries. Emergency and safety personnel need to know these variances for each hospital to save lives and minimize permanent disabilities." The Region VI/VII EMS system is a federally funded program charged with coordinating all aspects of emergency care in 13 counties of north central West Virginia. The 13 counties are Doddridge, Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Pres- ton, and Taylor counties in Region VI, and Barbour, Braxton, Gilmer, Lewis, Randolph, Tucker and Upshur counties in Region VII.

This has been asked by rural people ever since the fight to the cities began in the early 1940's. But Dr. Walter A. Guntharp, administrator of the Rural Develop- ment Service in the U.S. Department of Agriculture {USDA) says, "Because of the new trend of rural population retention and growth, the question of young people leaving for the city is of less concern now in most rural areas. Instead, rural leaders are asking how they can best develop their commun- ities to accommodate the growing number of young as well as older people who are choosing to remain in rural areas or move to them." Guntharp indicated that rural counties-those that have no city as large as 50,000 population-stopped sending most of their young people off to the big city beginning in the late 1960's. "Not only are they keeping more of their young residents and older ones also," he said' "but thousands of new people are moving into rural areas from metropolitan counties and reral migrants of the past are returning home." Gunthrap added that there has been net migration of about 350,000 persons per year from urban centers of the country to rural areas. "This is a complete reversal of the urbanward trend of population migration that prevailed from 1940 to the late 1960's" he said. Demographer Calvin Beale of USDA'S Economic Research Service says it is no longer as necessary for rural people to move away to find economic opportunity because of the growth of trade, service, and manufacturing jobs in rural areas. "But," he says, "changing attitudes about rural life versus big-city life may be equally important in halting the migration, particularly among the young." Beale indicated that the environ- mental and ecological movements plus the antimaterialistic aspects of the youth "revolution" have influenced many people, especially young adults. He said, "Their attitudes about what is important to them are changing, and they are increasingly favoring smaller scale communities as places to live. Farm maps may halt development In an effort to identify "prime farmlands" so that they will be protected from non-agricultural de- One hundred twenty two counties in 46 states are being inventoried this year for a nationwide "Important Farmlands Inventory." Most of the counties have been under intense pressure from urban development. An additional 154 counties have been selected for inventory in 1977. By 1980 the agency hopes to publish color maps of 1,200 counties, or more than one-third of the nation. The county-by-county survey will provide the detailed information needed to support new department policy, announced June 28. to help keep the nation's best farm. range, and forest lands from going into non-agricultural uses. USDA has urged all federal agencies to adopt the policy that federal activities that take prime farmland should be carried out only when there are no suitable alternative sites and when the activity meets an overriding public need. Lists of the first 122 counties being inventoried may be obtained by writing Information Division, Soil Conservation Service.

The "unemployed fathers" pro- gram is a state program in which local welfare departments seek jobs for heads of families which are receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Unemvloyed benefits. Be a real American! Vote! You must be registered by October I to vote in the November 2ad General Election. In Gilmer County, the Department of Welfare's "unemployed fathers" case load has dropped from 18 to two between February and July, a 89 per cent reduction, and as of July 15 the last two "unemployed fathers" cases were closed. The other counties which have reduced their "unemployed fathers" case load to zero are: Wetzel, Tyler, Kanawha, Braxton, Clay, Wayne, Greenbrier and Monroe. Throughout the state the number of persons receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Unemployed benefits has been decreased by 61 per cent.

He is pictured above in front of the bank's vault with his wife, Lenita. [Democrat photo] Bank employees honor Garrett's banking career Glenn Garrett's 33-year banking career has spanned the growth of the Kanawha Union Bank. In 1942, Garrett joined a staff of four in the old bank building, which is located behind the present, modern facility. In the sprin of that veer Kanawha Union Bank entered the million dollar class for the first time. Garrett was an employee of the bank when it consolidated with the Glenville Banking and Trust. Last week, 23 employees of the bank honored Garrett with a retirement dinner. At the time of his retirement in May, the bank has assets of over $23 million. Garrett began working as a teller in December of 1942. He was later promoted to assistant cashier. After moving into the new bank in 1961, he worked in the note department until last March when he suffered a stroke and was unable to continue working. Since his illness, Garrett is much improved and still enjoys some of his work, including bookkeeping for businesses. In addition to some interesting hobbies, he and Mrs. Garrett, the former Lenita Spicer, enjoy traveling, and quite often visit their daughters and nine grand- children.
