The school-level bee, at which stu- dents answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the second annual national Geography Bee sponsored by National Geographic's "World," the Society's magazine for children, Amtrak, and Kudos Snack. The bee was ki~ ed off the week of January 29 } thousands of schools" around ttc. United States, District of Columbia, and five U. S. territories. The school winners, in- cluding Miss Lake, will now take a written test. Up to 100 of the top scorers in each state will be eligible to compete in their state bee march 30. The National Geographic Society with its co-sponsors will provide an al!-axpenses-paid trip to Washing- ton, D. C., for state champions and their teacher escorts to participate in the national Geography Bee finals May 23 and 24. The first-place na- tional winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship; the second- place winner, a $15,000 scholar- ship; and the third-place winner, a $10,000 scholarship. Alex Trebek, host of the television game show "Jeopardy!," will moderate the na- tional finals. The National Geographic Society developed the national Geography Bee in response to a growing con- cern about the lack of geographic knowledge among young people in the United States. A ten-country Gallup Survey conducted for the Society in 1988 and 1989 found that people in the U. S. ages 18 to 24, the youngest group surveyed, knew less about geography than young people in any of the other countries. The National Geographic Soci- ety, with nearly 11 million members, has as its mission the "increase and ,diffusion of geographic knowledge." Besides the National Geography Bee, the Society sponsors a number of other geography education initia- tives, including the Summer Geogra- phy Institute for teachers, the Na- tional Alliance Network, Which en- compasses 34 states.

On February 12, at 6 p.m. in the House of Delegates Chamber of the State Capitol, concerned citizens and legislators gathered for a public hearing on the various state hospi- tals that may result from the pas- sage of two similar bills presented by the Governor. Senator J. D. Brackenrich, (D- Greenbrier), believes the needs of the people and the state hospital employees should be the focal point of the legislation. "Many families carefully choose these hospitals for their relatives because of the loca- tions and amount of employee care given to the patients. I don't believe selling the hospitals would benefit the patients, employees, or the fami- lies," said Mr. Brackenrich. As many as 200 people attended the public hearing jointly by the Fi- nance Committee and the Senate Committee of gubernatorial repre- sentative Taut~ja Miller, Secretary of Health and Human Resources. The speakers ranged from legislative members to junior high students Mr Brackenrich said. The main concerns of the people regarded the effects the closings would have with the clients of the hospitals. The citizens and lawmak- ers stressed that these hospitals serve as home to the patients and to many of them the em the only family they also stated that some of would not be able to were relocated. Another area cerned the employees jobs effects the lost have on the mayor of the town of that if'so much as five to move from the town as s the closings the town bly have no choice but porate charter.
