Mills. Mills said that an investigation by Consumer Protection this week disclosed the presence in the state. According to the investigation, he various cuts of beef and beef are being peddled door-to- in residential areas. Offered for boxes, the 18-24 cuts of priced in excess of $3,00 per The exact source of the meat is Mills said, but there is to believe that it is being into the state from Ohio and marketed under name of "Beef House." A number food storage firms reported bein used as reference, by the vendors, Mills said, without company permission. The peddlers' only known base of operations are the four or five trucks they own, he pointed out, and while they are belived to be out of the state re-stocking at present, they are expected to return within the next few days. What is particularly questionable about the peddlers, Mi~ explained, is their method of operation. "We have learned that, as a general practice, they tend to operate in one area just long enough to clear a small profit and arouse the suspicions of local authorities." To the consumer and the Labor Department, he continued, this suggests several things. "We know that their trucks are refrigerated poorly, at best, indicating that their sanitation practices and the quality of their product is question- able," he said. "They also appear to be in violation of the state's labeling and packaging regulations when they sell directly to the consumer." Finally, he said. simple arithmetic reveals that, at $3.00 per pound, their so-called "meat bargain" is actually no bargain at all. "We would ask any person." he concluded, "who is approached by this operation to call our Department immediately, so that we might eradicate this problem in West Virginia as quickly as possible." Callers are directed to ask for David L. Grfffith. Director of the Department's Consumer Protection Division, in Charleston, at (304) 348-7890.

Joriko mouse dbs of old oge MarLy the Mou.qo, a field mouse who used a liking for marijuana to gain fame and a position in medical research, has died. He was an estimated 16 months old. Marcy died peacefully in his sleep last week in California at a pet clinic where he had spent the last month for treatment of a stubborn skin ailment that robbed him of much of his fur. Death was attributed to old age. The four-inch, gray-brown rodent was little known until last Christmas when he moved to police headquarters and, despite strenuous police efforts, conducted nightly raids on marijuana stored for use as evidence. His success at eluding police gained national publicity. Officers finally trapped him with his favorite snack, but instead of being charged he was taken to the University of California at Los Angeles to aid in studies on marijuana. Later he was installed as a police mascot, living a life of leisure in a special cage-with all the food he wanted, but no marijuana. There are no know survivors. A companion mouse donated to provide female companionship-but who turned out to be a male-died during the summer.
