"This collection of sketches... embraces only such portraits, scenes and incidents as the author, a mere amateur artist was able to touch off at leisure as opportunity permitted in the course of a very busy, busy period of his life." Those words accompany a collection of 75 drawings made between 1845 and 1875 by Joseph H. Diss Debar. They are now in teh State Archives in Charleston. Debar is best known as the designer of West Virginia's State Seal, but he also was a land speculator, a State Legislator and served for eight years as West Virginia's non-salaried Commissioner of Immigration. Before holding that position, he had already founded a colony, composed of German, Austrian and Swiss immi- grants, at St. Clara in Doddridge County. His work, his community and his character are the subjects of a series of features on WWVU-TV's news and current events program. The series will be broadcast on the nights of Nov. 10, 11, and 12. THE MOUNTAIN SCENE TONIGHT is telecast at 7:00 p.m. and repeats at 11:00 p.m. Wednesday's feature gives viewers a close look at a number of the sketches depicting how Debar saw his neighbors, people involved in the court system, the formation of West Virginia, and the Civil War. On Thursday, Mary Lucille DeBerry describes the community, with the help of Joe Hinter, whose father came there from Germany and Norma Bowyer, whose grandfather, W.'L. Cole, grew up there and had a special interest in history. The center, of the colony originally was where Leopold is today and then moved over the hill to become St. Clara. Both Leopold and St. Clara are involved in the story of citizens who, for many years, kept their area free of both crime and the welfare system. Photographs show the farms and churches laid out by Debar on an early map.

Or have you heard that the vaccine (:an give you the flu? With so many wrong ideas being circulated about the swine flu vaccination program, the Christmas Seal People would like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions. WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS? The Glenvil/e Democrat/ Pathfinder 9 I'}m lfiv;dtml v;. :ine is a combination .1 the swine l]u vaccine and the 'n.rm.I tlu'" wmcine. Approximately every ten years the influenza virus develops a new strain. In 1918 a fin virus killed more than 20 million people. Again in 1957-58 there w,re 45.000,000 cases and 70,000 deaths. In the Hung Kong flu epidemic of 1966.69 33,000 deaths were caused by that strain but approximately 50 million persons were affected in this country and the cost to the nation for one epidemic year has been estimated at $3.8 billion. Now a new strain has once agdn been discovered. BUT IT HAS BEEN ONLY 8 YEARS SINCE THE 1968 EPH)ENflC Thal is the pot|. ie:.use (,I the e. rlv discow,.ry of lhi slrain. Imalth services have been abh, :, dew,lop the proper vaccine. A new str.iu ot t]u aI)l)ears h) h,ke three w;ars ill ,,rder to p..k: there is usually a year from the lirM appe.rancc to tim full scale epidemic.

He will assess Debar's contributions and reveal some little known facts that he came across while writing the recently published "West Virginia, A Bicenten- nial History." Williams reveals in his new book that Debar ended his multi-faceted career ia an out-of-state prison after being associated with a confidence racket. Viewers may find a link between that .information and Debar's descriptions of Western Virginia land intended for would-be settlers in the mid-llKI0's. The only way the flu can be transmitted is from cantact with an infected person, You cannot ,4{;I it from contact with swine or from eating pork. OK BUT CAN I GET THE FLU FROM THE VACCINE? No. you cannot gel the flu from the vaccine. The vaccine is made from dead virus. It has also been refined so there is less chan(:e t)f side affects. WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT VACCINES? There are two vaccines. The monovahmt is for every adult 18-65. TltEN WHY IS IT CALLED SWINE FI.U? Because it is similar to a strain of tqu previously found only in swine. WHERE CAN I GET THE SHOT? The shot is available every Tuesday at the Cilmer County Health deparhnenI on the first floor of the Gilmer Medical Center building on Mineral Road. WHAT IS THIS FORM YOU SIGN? It is a (:onsent form. It shown that Vm have read the information about the vac(:ine and agree to take it. It is not a legal release, IF I AM PREGNANT. SHOULD I TAKE THE VACCINE? As with any medication, you should consult your physician before taking this wtccine, but there is no specific reason why the swine influenza vaccine, which is a killed virus wmcine, should not be given to |)regn;ln| women.
