According to Bob Waggoner, Director of Com. munity Action in Gilmer Coun- ty, the work was provided by CETA employees, who were sponsored by the Gilmer County Commission. Supervi- sion for the project was con- ducted by Ted Greenlief and John Hays from the Senior Community Services Project under Region VII. The Community Action Association (CAA) once operated a gardening program funded by the State. Last year, state officials informed the CAA that funding would no longer be provided for seeds, tools, fertilizer and such, as listed under the program. Because of this the local CAA approached the State and West Central Office, Parkersburg, for funding for a greenhouse to be put on coun- ty property to raise plants to continue the gardening pro- gram. Through a discussion bet- ween Waggoner and Superintendent of Gilmer Schools Ronald J. Welty, CAA and the Board agreed that if the greenhouse were to be built on school property, the FFA and other school-related groups could use the facility. In the agreement, CAA will provide seeds for propagati(sn which will be used to help the people that were involved in the now defunct gardening program. The program will thus be continued due to the completion of this project. Reporting on the comple- tion of the project, Waggoner seemed very pleased that the Board of Education, County Court and CAA worked so well together to provide the needed service of the gardening pro- Walnut hulling station is open in Parkersburg THROUGH a cooperative agreement between the Com. munity Action Association and the Board of Educe- tion, this greenhouse has been erected at GCHS.

Butcher Straight Answers From Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies tO questions being asked by our customers. Answenng is Peale Davidson, Supemisor, App#cat~ons Engineenng. With the current emphasis on energy con- serv.ation, why shouldn't the use of such frivolous things as electdc toothbrushes be banned? Banning small appli- ances such as electric toothbrushes would be use- less; the energy saved would be too small to have any ef- fect on the overall energy sup- ply. The September/Octo- ber, 1942, issue of a Monon- gahela Power newsletter sent to all residential customers carried the following defini- tion: "Conservation doesn't mean doing without! It means using what you have to best advantage-- without waste." That definition was appropriate then, as America faced an uncertain future in the early days of World War ii; it is just as appropriate today as not only America, but the whole world faces an uncer- tain energy future. We believe now, as we did in 1942, that an effective energy conservation program should focus not on elimina- tion of use, but rather on con- servative management of what is used. For example, the average household elec- tric range, water heater, freezer, refrigerator, air condi- tioner or space heating system will consume as much as several thousand times the energy used annu- ally by an electric toothbrush, clock, blender or shaver. Ma- jor conservation efforts, therefore, should be directed toward these high use ap- pliances where a reduction in their use and/or replacement with more efficient equip- ment can result in really worthwhile energy savings. Cheap, abundant ener. gy has been a key factor in helping us achieve the highest living standard ever known to man. Intelligent use of our remaining energy re- serves will help us to retain and maybe even improve this standard for future genera- tions. Monongahela Power Part of the Allegheny Power System ii /
