/ e 2 The Glenvllle Democrat/ Pathfinder November 25, 197fi Proud of GSC Glenville State College's reputation for quality teacher education programs was recently reaffirmed by an evaluation by the West Virginia Department of Education. The college has traditionally been known as one of the foremost teacher education institutions in the state. It wasn't long ago that the college was known simply as Glenville State Teachers College. However, the recent evaluation shows that GSC has kept pace with the most modern standards in the field. Dedicated GSC administrators and faculty have managed to maintain a top flight program within the bounds of a small rural college environment. GSC's unique rural setting was another feature which impressed the state department of education's team. They liked the neat campus and the attitudes of the faculty, staff and students. All those Gilmer Countians who are a part of GSC should be proud of their role in maintaining the college's reputation for quality higher education.

Consumer Atty. Gen. Chauace Browning Americans are known to be very generous people. Last year alone they gave 20 billion dollars to charities. And, just as fair and accurate information is needed to make wise choices in the marketplace, certain facts about charitable organizations should be acquired before a contribution is made. The council of Better Business Bureaus has established standards for charitable solicitation, including the requirement that charities disclose complete activity, managerial and financial information. Consumers should "question" any charity which refuses to give out financial information. For non-profit organizations there are three expense areas to which money is usually allocated: program services, fund-rising and manage- ment. You should know how the money is distributed among these three areas. To be sure your donation is spent efficiently and wisely, remember these suggestions: If you receive a telephone appeal for donations, ask the caller to put the request in writing and to send a financial report. If any unordered items appear in your mailbox, you do not have to return or pay for them. Find out about the organization first, before sending money. Avoid paying any solicitation disguised as a telegram, invoice, or bill. Report these to your local post office. If the solicitation is made door-to-door and the person is unknown to you. ask for identification. Do not give cash, and make any checks payable to the organization, not to the individual. Be sure to request a statement of purpose from the charity and written proof that your donation will be tax deductible. Although the vast majority of charitable organizations are well- meaning, some unscrupulous busi- nessmen have found that preying on your generosity can be very profitable. Beware of high-pressure tactics and tear-ierking, hard-luck stories, and remember that legitimate agencies have no need for such tactics. If you are ever in doubt about the legitimacy of a charity, feel free to contact the Council of Better Business Bureaus, 1150 17th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036, or call my office's Consumer Protection Division in Charleston.
