2 The Glendlle Democrat/Pathfinder Friday. August 1.'t !!11'6 State will suffer under edict Gee. Moore's recent decision to relax air pollution standards controlling sulfur dioxide emissions was an insult to West Virginians whose concern for the state transcends the threats of a few loud-mouthed miners and the bully-boy policies of the state's carpetbagging electric companies. According to the West Virginia Citizens Action Group, coal burning facilities in the state can now increase their total sulfur dioxide emissions by 120 per cent. The group says that scientists have found that levels of sulfur dioxide lower than the state's previous limits can aggravate diseases such as asthma, bronchitis and heart conditions and can cause respiratory ailments in children and the elderly. Moore's claim that the modifications were necessary to save jobs does not stand up under investigation. The Citizens Action Group maintains that his decision could cost the jobs of West Virginia miners currently supplying low sulfur coal to the eight power plants now in compliance with emission standards. It is now possible for American Electric Power Co. to start importing its captive high sulfur coal from Ohio to feed plants now using low sulfur coal from southern West Virginia. Although the new waves of pollution probably won't reach Gilmer County, the mentality behind such a decision may. We can only hope that in Moore's last days he doesn't issue another one of his imperial edicts which may directly effect the environment of our own county.

Gem Chauncey Browning Over the years, those of us who have been stricken with headaches, colds, strained muscles, tension and a host of other minor ailments have relied on pills, ointments, lozenges and other such medicines to provide some kind of relief. These drugs, known as over-the- counter (OTC} or non-prescription medicines, have been the target of assult by consumer groups and government agencies for several years. Many controversies have arisen as to the safety and effectiveness of such drugs. In response, the Food and Drug Administration {FDA) in 1972 set out to evaluate the several hundred thousand OTC drugs available to the American consumer. Although these studies are still in progress, many important discoveries have been made. For eample, one whole class of OTC drugs was found to be useless and possibly harmful. The FDA's advisory panel 'designated the dru. ,,s "'daytime sedatives" and expressed doubts tirol these m,,dh'i=., !,:,,' ,,v making FDA used cough and scription When and oBe drugs, it steps are these and caP s regulatorY protect be on the on the KeeP drugs cannot t'lll't) t)r substitute : i
