A lot has changed since then, but McKnight remains in his shop cutting hair, some- thing he's been doing since October 1, 1952. -This area was quite dif- ferent then than it is now," remembered McKnight. "There were three of us in the shop in those days, and on Saturdays we'd work all day non.stop. There were more people stirring then, and many different businesses that aren't here now." Hairstyles were different in those days as well. Knight recalls that "all the kids wore flat tops, or G.I. cuts.I can re. member cutting the hair of the whote Greenbrler High School basketball team and giving them all G.I. cuts." McKnight's had many cus- tomers who've literally grown up having their hair cut bY him. As he says,"i've had some people who haven't had tneir hair cut anywhere else since I've been here." The Lewisburg resident says that he has no plans of retiring in the near future. "1 could be here another ten years," he says. "1'11 stay as long as i can keep my health." State students selected U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd.D. W.Va. announced that 4 West Virginia students ~have been selected to partici- pate in the 1985-86 United States congress-West German Bundestag youth exchange program.

Stone, also a student at Greenbrler East High School; and James D. Morrison III, Herbert Hoover High School, CIRri- den in, W. V a.- K anawha County. "These are out-stand- ing young West Virginia~ and I congratulate them on being chosen to participate in this program," Byrd said. "The goal of the congress- Bundestag Youth Exchange is to strengthen the ties be. tween the young people of the United States and West Germany, and I am happy to see West Virginia so well represented in this program through these students., The West Virginia students ~are among 436 exchange stu- ~lents who were selected from 3,000 students. They will spend one year in West Ger- many with one family.
