The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder 13-4 October 70. 197"/ Rt. Rev. Atkinson to make first Episcopal Visitation Legal Notice RI. Rev. Robert P. Atkinson The at. Rev. Robert P. Atkinson, D.D.. Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia, will make his first official Episcopal Visitation to Emmaus Chapel in Glenville on Tuesday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. He is the Chief Pastor of the 85 congregations within the state. Rector of Calvary Church in Memphis, Tennessee, at the time of his election to the episcopate, Bishop Atkinson was consecrated a Bishop of the Church and Coadjutor of the Diocese on May 6, 1973, in St. Matthew's Church in Wheeling. He served congregations in Wheeling, Fairmont and Huntington before he went to Memphis. He was elevated to his present post on January 5, 1976, in Trinity Church of Huntington. Bishop Atkinson has for many years been interested in "new models of ministry" and the Emmaus Chapel concept is one of these new models of ministry. By bringing the Church to areas without the Episcopal Church presence, Emmaus Chapel hopes to serve the counties of Gilmer, Braxton, Roane, Calhoun and Ritchie. The Chapel seeks to serve Christ and His Science movies to be A series of science movies is scheduled to be shown in the Science Building at Glenville State College beginning at 7 p.m., Thursday, October 20. The programs will continue each Thursday until the series is completed. Each program is approximately 50 minutes in length. The movies consist of seven lectures given at Cornell University by Professor Richard Feynman, Physicist at California Tech. He is a Nobel Laureate noted for his ability to present his highly technical subject to non-physicists in a lively and easily understandable manner. The lectures are intended to penetrate the forbidding barriers of scientific discourse and describe the fundamental laws of Physics in terms laymen can comprehend. They are direct and straightforward, filled with Planning Council seeks The Region VII Planning and Development Council has recently released a draft Regional Housing Plan and is soliciting public opinion as to its content. The plan is comprised of three major sections: assessment of housing need, regional housing policy state- opinions number lacking one or more plumbing facilities.

Concerning Cox's Miffs Kyle Emerson of Cox's Mills stopped by the office to tell us that the generally used style of writing that community's name is grammatically correct. "Oliver P.,Cox owned two mills over there," he said. "One was a grist mill and the other a saw mill." Mr. Emerson said he could also recall a time when there were two dams in the community. According to Mr. Emerson, Oliver P. Cox owned practically all of what is now Cox's Mills. He even had a Consumer Research rep in town Glenville Muncipal Judge Delbert L. Davidson reports that John Noonen, a representative of Consumer Re- search in Pittsburgh, was in Glenville last week to gather information concerning the town's population, zoning ordinances, and the need for additional retail outlets in the area. Davidson said he spent more than two hours showing Noonen around the city and advising him concerning local laws and situations. He said Noonen told him that a large company had employed his firm to make the study of the Glenville market area to determine the needs and possible profit structure. The possibility of locating a "mini-mall" in Glenville was discused, Davidson said. Noonen also met with other community leaders while in the area. Haines investigates accident A traffic accident was investi- gated Sunday, October 9, by Corporal W.S. Haines of the Gilmer County Detachment of the West Virginia State Police. The incident involved a 1973 Ford pickup driven by Jimmy F. Coombs, 42, of Parkersburg, and a 1972 Chrysler, driven by William J. Hanshaw, 47, also of Parkersburg. The accident occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m. on State Route 47 near Cox's Mills. According to an accident report on file at the local State Police Station, Coombs was apparently left of center when he rounded a curve and struck Hanshaw head-on. Haines cited Coombs for being left of center. lumber camp in the area and one of the streams is known as Cox's Camp Fork Additional of Horn Creek. Mr. Emerson also said that in accident details earlier times the town's name was In a follow-up to an accident ment, and implementing programs and strategies. It includes a plan of action for the Regional Council and its staff to combat the critical housing problem in this area. The plan profiles each of the seven member counties' housing problems and includes the following in its discussion concerning Gilmer County: "The Gilmer County housing situation is dictated by slow moving housing construction industry, re- sponding to a virtually stagnated population [1970-1975}, One-third of the existing housing stock was determined to be substandard with 1970 Census figures showing a similar population by new construction does not seem to be as critical as the construction, rehabilitation, and assistance to the units serving the existing population. Presently there is little single-family housing subdivision activity in the County. This is probably due to the lack of availability of water and sewerage facilities outside of the saturated city limits of Glenville. There is an existing proposal for 40 units of low and moderate income housing but as yet has not proceeded to funding or construction."
