For four days the Greenbrier East High School Band ate, slept, and practiced at the Greenbrier County Youth Camp at Anthony during the band's 13th consecutive band camp. The emphasis was on practice, memorization, and instruction, as guest band director John Bane of Ashland, Kentucky. worked with the group to perfect techniques for the 1990 march- ing season. Mr Bane was joined by a large staff of former GEHS band members, typical of each year's camp as numerous alumni return to help their successors. Also assisting were Robert Wamsley. graduate of Huntington High School; and Ron Jacobs of Raleigh, North Carolina. "This is definitely one of the big highlights of the year for each band member," Mr Bryant said. ~I'his ls the time at the be- ginning of the School year when we build a valuable family at- mosphere for these kids." Mr Bryant is beginning his eleventh year with the band, which this year_features 102 in- strumentalists, 24 guard mem- bers, and two drum majors. Al- though the band's theme this year is varied, the bulk of its performance centers around Broadway hits. According to Mr Bryant, the show begins with a "complex classical number entitled "Haven Dance," which was re-scored for the marching field. The show ends with "Through the Eyes of Love," from the movie "ice Castles." The middle of the show con- sists of selections from the Broadway shows "Phantom of the Opera," "My Fair Lady," "Oklahoma," "West Side Story," and others. Among the songs are "Give My Regards to Broadway," "Tonight," "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing," "One," and "New York, New York."

"It is one of our civic projects to help promote better health in the community" said Roberta Cross; chairperson for the pro- gram. The MBAP test is designed to help physicians provide preven- tive health care by monitoring at regular intervals the various functions and organ systems of the body through a study of blood composition. A physician can often predict diseased condi- tions of the heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, circulatory system, thyroid or other vital areas of the body before they become acute. All test results are sent to the participant's personal physician within 14 to 21 days of testing for interpretation. A strict 12 hour fast is re- quired, along with no alcoholic beverage for 24 hours, is re- quired prior to testing to insure more meaningful results. Only a small amount of water should be consumed during fasting. Per- sons on prescribed medication should consult their physician before starting to fast. A $23 fee Is paid to qi-State Clinical Laboratory of Jeannette, Pennsylvania for the entire proc- ess, which includes analysis re- porting, supplies, personnel and maintenance of a permanent test data file.

Osteopathic School Screened Fair-Goers For Cholesterol After a day on the West Vir- ginia State Fair diet of elephant ears, gyros, and corn dogs, 1,045 vistors took advantage of cholesterol screenings, and 4,762 had free blood pressure checks by tile West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (wVSOMI. WVSOM conducts the screen- ings because blood pressure and cholesterol checks are a simple way to measure potential health problems. High blood pressure can lead to stroke or heart dis- ease and usually has no notice- able symptoms. According to the American Heart Association, blood pressure should be checked at least once a year. High blood cholesterol levels increase chances of heart and blood vessel disease and can be lowered by cutting-down on food high in cholesterol. Each person was given a sllp of paper with the results of the screenings. "Several people came in with their slips from last year to compare the results," said Betty Ewart, health educator for WVSOM. "This shows that people are getting the message about cholesterol and trying to modify their diet and lifestyles to lower cholesterol and blood pres- sure levels." More than 1200 West Virglnl- arts who visited the WVSOM booth filled out a health assess- ment survey as part of a re.- search project conducted by Craig Bolsvert, D.O., associate clinical professor of clinical sci- ences at WVSOM. Dr Bolsvert is studying cardiovascular disease in West Virginia. WVSOM also had an Informa- tion booth at the fair this year. "The health screenings booth and the information booth gave us a great opportunity to talk to potential students and to give West Vlrgtnias a better under- standing of what osteopathic medicine Is," said John Gorby, director of admissions at WVSOM.
