Glen dle I ratoPa The Gilmer County precinct totals for the General Elec- tion last Tuesday show a variety of things. The biggest item that comes out of the vote totals is that Gflmer County, supposedly a Democratic county, sup ported all three Republican candidates for the three major races, Presider, Senator and Governor. At other thing that appears is that, although 10 of 13 precincts supported a Republican president in Gilmer County, none of the 13 precincts supported a Republican candidate for House of Representatives, with all of the precincts supporting Robert Wise. Mondale won in only three of the county's 13 precincts, while Rockefeller won in only four of the precincts. Clyde See was almost a county-wide loser, with all precincts go- ing to Arch Moore, except for Precinct 31-Cox's Mills. In fact, Cox's Mills Precinct was the only precinct to vote con- sistently for the Democratic ticket. Another surprise was the vote totals for the House of Delegates race, with Braxton Countian Robert Kidd out- polling local candidate Marge Burke. Kidd totalled 2003 votes in the county, while Burke got 1737. This seems to be an ironic situation, and one that bears some thought. Although Mrs. Burke captured seven of the 13 precincts, she was still outvoted in total votes cast, Although both candidates were running unopposed, one would expect for the local candidate to garner more votes than an "out- sider", although there's no denying that both are fine representatives for the area. As far as the Precinct totals individually, the totals go as follows: Precinct No. 1-Normantown President--Mondale-152, Reagan-228, and Richards-3: US Senate--Rockefeller-147. Raese-220. and Radin-2; US House of Representatives--Wise-223, and MiUer-lll; Governor--See-174, and Moore-215, Sec. of State--Hechler-212, and Golden-130; Attorney General--Brown-201, and McCuskey-152; Auditor--Gainer-229, and Bone-104; Treasurer---Manchin-223, and Hale-126; Commissioner of Agric.---Douglass-235, and Smith-Ill; Judge of the Supreme Court of Appeals--Neely-222, and Brotherton-197; State Senator-Thirteenth Senatorial District--Sharps-197, and'NaVy-148: House of Delegates- Ninth Delegate District--Kidd-211, and Burke-214; Judge of the Circuit Court-Fourteenth Judicial Circuit--Somerville-205, and Cline-210; Assessor---Stalnaker-258; County Commission---Gainer-250; Magistrate---Wolfe-227, and Minigh-223; Prosecuting Attorney--Perrill-193; Sherfff--KJrkpatrick-243, and Shacldeford-116; Amend- ment 1---For-159, Against-172; Amendment 2--For-l 29, Against-175; Amendment 3--For-214, Against-ll9; Amendment 4--For-110, Against-237; and Amendment 5--For-286, Against-70, Precinct No. 5-Cedarville President--Mondale-144, Reagan-159, Richat ds-1; US Senator--Rockefeller-136, Raese-158; House of Representatives--Wise- 172, Miller-92; Governor--See-149, Moore-165; Sec. of State--Hechler-168.

A growing number of world leaders are saying clearly: "International peace and understanding are not an option, but a necessity of our time.'" Here are some practical ways you can support this event: A. Come and be present yourself for some or all of the day. B. Encourage others you know to attend. C.' If you teach a class, look for ways to make this event part of your class a field trip, for extra credit, as a requirement for class credit, as an optional class project. Hope to see you on the 29th! Slack...and Shalom, sulsit Dear r Uy: _ On behalf of the Gilmer County Chapter of the American Cancer Society, I take this opportunity to publicly thank the many people who attended our 1984 Salad Luncheon on November 1. The luncheon was a success due to the efforts and con- tributions of many individuals and businesses to whom the Gilmer County Chapter wishes to express its sincere thanks. Our thanks to: Yo , Kelly, for the publicity we received in The Glenville Iknaocrat-Pathflndor; and to Pioneer Grocery, Foodland and U-Pak. for the food donations; the church women and others who prepared and donated salads: those who volunteered their time and energy the day of the luncheon: those who helped set up, and take down tables and chairs; those who donated flowers, and, again, those who attended the luncheon. We know that "cooperation" is the key word, and "suc- cess" the result--thanks for your continued support of our cause.

Arnold Editor/Publisher Advertising C; Iq gyb Ime, ,, Food Pantry The media for the pe t week has been swamped with analysis of the election. Remarkable statements have been made hy both sides of the po litical arena, with "experts" venturing their predictions about the conduct of govern- ment during the next four years. Prior to the election. I made my predictions, which went Something like this: Presiden1JVice President - Reagan, Bush: U.S. Senate - Rockefeller; Governor - Arch Moore; Secretary of State - Ken Hechler; Attorney General - Charlie Brown. in a tight race; Auditor - Glen Gainer: Treasurer ]ames Manchin; Commissioner of Agriculture GAus - R. Douglass; State Senate - William "Bill'" Neely, as a "dark horse" winner; Supreme Court of Appeals Judges - Richard Neely and W.T. Brotherton, Jr.; and in the only other contested race, Sheriff - Vic Kirkpatrick. I didn't publish these predictions, for I felt I had a much more important issue to discuss, and anyway, who cared about my predictions? That I missed only one - my Dark Horse didn't win - shows how easily the voters of West Virginia are to predict. As I reviewed the "unofficial" election results in last week's Democrat, I saw some interesting statistics which, unless analyzed, might go unnoticed. For instance, more votes were cast for governor than for any other office. Quick arithmetic tells us that 3,483 voters marked ballots for either Arch Moore or Clyde See, with Republican Moore carrying the county. As I viewed those results I This cupboard would make Old Mother home. This cupboard is at the Giimor which is conducting a drive to stock its shelves week of November 25.

Glenville Mayor, Delbert Davidson, has week of November 26 to be Gilmer Food Pantry Week. The theme of the week is: "The Holidays holidays for the Hungry." Members of the Glenville State College sororities along with volunteers will be remembered that Arch carried Gilmer County four years neighborhoods in Gilmer County for food or cash ago - one of two counties he carried, lions, during the week of 25th.

Strange, don't you think that less than half the Gflmer Countians at the polls failed to vote for a citizen of the county? Could it be that there is a message here and that an opponent might fare well if one chose to run? One last comment: We West Virginians are truly a strange lot when it comes to elections.

Thus. the supply of blood is limited and depends entirely on the generosity of donors. There are vast reserves of life- _staining blood stored in thousands of residents of Gilmer County. However, most of these reserves, unfortunately, remain there, Only 3.5 percent of the population supplies blood for the needs of all...and it isn't enough. More donors are always needed to help our hospital pa- tients. What does the gift of blood cost you. the donor? Nothing more than an hour of your time. The procedure is safe and nearly painless. If you want to know what it feels like, just pinch yourself. Now. what excuse do you have for not passing on the gift of life? Hease donate blood. The next bloodmobile visit is schedvJed for December 4. beginning at 12 noon, and en- ding at 5 p.m., at the Wesley Foundation. Give the gift of life!
