Of his he said: years as Governor in memory as to not IN THE Moore, Jr. require a summary at this time. I would only remind you that we set the highest and most difficult goals for ourselves and we did. indeed, do what we said we could do." Of his plans, Moore said: "As a United States Senator, with long experience in both Washington and Charleston, my role will be to initiate far more progress at home and to represent West Virginia far more prominently before the councils of our state and our nation. In my view. this is an aspect of our growth that has been lacking and one in which we West Virginiana have not shared as other states have shared." Prior to making his announce- ment, Moore commented on the present administration in Charleston and noted: "I said during the campaign an ox would be in the ditch within the first six months. However, it only took ten days." He also q,:ed for a massive tax increase which ba been proposed by the present administration and he pointed out that when he left office in January "there was a surplus of more than $200 million in the State Treasury." Moore was introduced by State Republican Chairman Cleveland Bene- dict, Following the introduction, Moore received a lengthy standing ovation from the audience. Moore may face 75-year-old Jennings Randolph who announced his candidacy several days ago. Moore pledged a vigorous campaign and concluded: "I have said in the past, criticism requires no special talent, therefore, I have always looked confidently to the future without dwelling upon the failure of others. What you may expect from me in the months ahead is the courage to continue to state my convictions with the firm belief that there is still an even greater share of America possible for the citizens of this unique State."

VA benefits to rise 6.5 per cent More than a million disabled veterans and 1.3 million widows and their children will receive e 6.5 per cent increase in their January pensinn checks, the Veterans Administration said recently. The increase was contained in legislation proposed in May by the VA and signed into law by President Carter on December 2, It comes exactly a year after the date of the last VA pension increase and is the tenth increase granted by Congress since 1960. According to VA Regional Director Sam A. Tiano, pensions are paid to wartime veterans with other than dishonorable discharges if, before they reach are 65, they are totally disabled from nonservice- connected causes and have no more than $3,770 in annual income if single, and $5,070 if they have dependents. After age 65, only the income limitation is considered. , ....... 4-H Sheepmen develop animal of the future People have needed sheep for flmusands of years. Ancient history tells how shepherds cared for their flocks. Today, more than ever, sheep are needed for two important purposes-wool and meat. With today's concern about the energy crisis and shortage of petroleum products, greater emphasis is being placed on expanding the uses of wool to replace many synthetically produced fabrics. Breakthroughs in treatments for wool fibers have also expanded this demand. Now more than ever, sheep are one of the most promising livestock enterprises. Nearly 77,000 young people in the national 4-H sheep program have recognized that the small initial investment, low feed cost and the production of two money crops a year in the form of lambs and wobl make their sheep a valuable source of income on their farm. Also, the ability of sheep to utilize pastures and 4-H crops as 90 percent of their total feed requirement and the small amount of time required for their care have made them especially valuable as a secondary source of income. The 4-H sheep program, conduc- ted by the Cooperative Extension Service, offers young people opportun- ities to ioin other boys and girls and adults in exciting and interesting activities. 4-H members in the sheep program gain an understanding of sheep breeding, production and management practices and acquire skills in keeping sound records.

Veterans with service-connected disabilities had already received a 6.6 per cent increase in their VA compensation checks by virtue of other legislation that went into effect October 1, Tiano said, The new legislation sets the basic pension rate from $5 to $222 per month, according to income, Tiano said it also insures that no one will lose a pension solely because of this year's boost in Social Security benefits. The legislation raises the basic monthly pension rate for veterans whose health requires the regular aid and attendance of another person from $155 to $165. Permanently honsebotmd veter- ans not requiring the aid and attendance of another person will receive an additional $61 per month. The new pension bill also includes a 6.5 per cent increase in payments to payments. Nearly 64,000 ,parents are on VA's DIC rolls.
