Time, as most passed 50 know, is life's most valuable and precious commodity. Yet, many doctors, dentists, and especially lawyers repeatedly waste hour upon hour of peoples' time: Doctors and dentists by greedily having office personnel schedule two or more persons for the same i period. Lawyers by nit-picking and unnecessarily delaying the progress of case after case. Senator Robert Nelson came to Glenville Thursday afternoon as a representative of a subcommittee reviewing and studying the college campuses of the state. By earlier communications, he and GSC President D. Banks Wilburn had scheduled a meeting of the two for 2 to 3 p. m., and a meeting with faculty and students for 3 p. m. All had been advised of these times. Before 3 o'clock, faculty and students began gathering o in the Pioneer ballroom, as scheduled. Three came and : passed. By 3:15, one faculty member stated. "I would not wait this long on my wife", and left. Others began leaving as the Senator failed to keep his appointment. By 3:55, all 150 who had arrived by three were gone. The Senator and • his escort came strolling across campus about this time. Result: Over 150 hours wasted! To dm Jm . I would like to respond to your "Our Power" political advertisment (page 7, Nov. 20 issue). The question that the power company offers is: Are nuclear power plants environmentally acceptable? Naturally, they choose to answer the least objectionable problem - heat. However, what about storage of nuclear wastes - plutonium, the most poisonous substance on the fpce of the earth? It must be stored in leak-proof tanks for tens of thousendd of years. Civilizations rarely last hundreds. What about the safety features of the plant itself?. No full scale test of the emergency coo "ling system has every been conducted. The small scale tests which have been conducted ALL FAILED. The horror of a nuclear accident would be tremendous. And injured persons would have extremely limited access to insurance benefits in case of an accident. These are only two environmental objections among many. It is also economically unsound. If we could only put l/lOth the research money into solar power that we commit to nuclear research we'd be energy indepen(lent. Sincerely. Jim Hartman. Burnt House, W. Vs. kept. it is always wise to take them to your vet once a year. Vaccinations for rabies, distemper, leptospirosis and hepatitis should be done according to schedule. Checking for internal and external parasites is important. Do not, neglect the dog's .teeth and Rums. Exposed dogs should have a check for heart worm indications. When balanced diets are not used, minerals and vitamins may be in order. You probably take your motors to a mechanic for winterization. Why not take your dog to your vet?

Regardless of where the dogs are By Dr. Lewis P. Thomas • Fall is almost gone and winter is creeping closer a day at a time. Most have winterized their trucks, autos and other mechanical conveyances. Don't forget the pets. Let's talk about dogs more specifically. Dogs kept out-of-doors may need extra heat. Warm bedding and freedom from drafts is a must. A working dog exposed to the elements of nature may need a slightly different diet. Hair coats quickly pinpoint deficiencies. Published Every Thumday ByGILMER COUNTY PUBUSNING, INC. At 1OO E.

ADDRESS- CITY STAR T SUBSCRIPTION ON SIGN GIFT CARD With the coming ban on the sale of non-nutritional foods in schools at anytime during the school day, students and booster groups will have to find other ways to collect funds. One method which appears to have merit is the recently reennounced collection and redemption of twelve popular labels and boxtops from Colgate-Palmolive products. According to the release, the Colgate School Action Plan is now in its fourth year. However, we have not heard that it has been tried by any local group. It should be investigated. The release claims that a school stands to gain an unlimited amount of cash from the company for collecting and redeeming labels and/or boxtops from Ajax All-Purpose Cleaner, Ajax Cleanser, Ajax for Dishes, Handi-wipes, Palmolive Crystal Clear Automatic Diswasher Detergent, Irish Spring Deodorant Soap, Dynamo Laundry Detergent, Baggies, Curad Plastic Bandages, Cold Power Laundry Detergent, Axion Laundry Pre-Soak and Detergent Booster, and Wash 'N Dri. Most all of these products can be found on local store " shelves. We suggest that local school principals obtain details from Jim Street, Colgate-Palmolive Company, 300 Park Ave., New York, N.
