14 The Glenvflle Democrat/ Pathfinder December 16, 1976 LEGAL NOTICES State labor office opens toll free line The Commissioner of the West Virginia Department of Labor, Joseph H. Mills. announced recently the installation of a toll-free telephone number to help citizens reach his Department with their complaints or requests for assistance. The toll free number is 1-800-642-9100. Commissioner Mills reported that citizens' requests for assistance have increased dramatically over the last two years. The Department of Labor received 1,269 requests for assistance in fiscal year 1975. In fiscal year 1976 this number had increased to 3,059, an increase of 141 per cent. Wage and Hour requests increased 34 per cent, weights and measures requests increased 88 per cent. Requests to the Safety Division increased almost ten-fold during this same time period, though Mills noted that most of this was due to the initiation of a new Safety Consultation Program. wl,mm j 630 Elk Sweet - Gassaway Office 364-8365 Or 364-5547 Evenings Call: Paula Pickens Wade Mrs. Paula Pickens Wade, 69, of Fernadina Beach, Fla., died Dec. 6 in Baptist Memorial Hospital, Jackson- ville Fla. after a long illness.

On one mission, Barry supposedly revived a child and somehow persuaded the youngster to climb on his back and ride to safety. Today, even routine rescues in the area are unusual. Only an occasional skier, traveler, or smuggler ventures in winter onto the snow- clogged pass on the Swiss-Italian border. Most travelers use a tunnel under the pass, opened in 1963.

Hospice Still Thrives But it is unlikely the doors will close at the famous St. Bernard hospice where the dogs are still bred. Founded in the llth century at the highest point in the pass, it has sheltered uncounted wayfarers. The hospice bears the name of St. Bernard de Menthon, the monk who established it. Near the end of the 17th century, the monks at St. Bernard acquired dogs. The animals guarded the monastery, were taught to turn spits in the kitchen and carried supplies. Around 1750 the black-robed monks began to train and breed their dogs for rescue missions. The result was the St. Bernard, a mixture of various bJoodstrains that most likely include the short-haired mastiff, sheep dog, Great Dane, and in later years, the Newfoundland, St. Bernards developed striking size--great paws, deep arched chest, broad straight back, muscular hindquarters, and thick taft. Their hair is thick enough to insulate against the cold. but short enough to shed the snow. For all its bulk, the dog's exuberance and soulful eyes give it puppylike appeal. But there is nothing puppylike about fully grown St. Bernards. They can weigh more than 200 pounds and have prodigious appetites. Moving?
