Activities at the event in- cluded a reenactment of a Civil War skirmish, a Mountaineer encampment, music perform- anees, craft demonstrations and lots of food. While at Jackson's Mill, visi- tors saw the partially restored Blaker's Mill. Work on this 200- year-old grist mill is progressing at a slow but steady pace. The mill was given to the uni- versity in 1984 by Robert Blaker, a descendant of its original own- ers. The mill had been in opera- tion until tile early 1950s near Alderson. Restoration, hampered by a lack of funds and man- power, is being done by 12 vol- unteers, all that's left of an origi- nal group of 108. Blaker's Mill was dismantled and transported to its present Jackson's Mill hoine. Ernie Best, maintenance chief of the stale's 4-H camp, and his crew spent the summer of 1985 numbering the stones and timbers for trans- port. Using a fiat-bed trailer and pick-up trucks, they loaded well over 10,000 pounds of stone for the trip to Jackson's Mill. "Because of the dedication Monday thru Saturday 8 am to 5 pm I _111 and willingness of the mainte- nance crew here at Jackson's Mill. most of the restored struc- ture will be of the original mate- rials," Mr Best said. A group of retired Wheeling area residents reassembled the structural timbers and stone- work. Volunteers include former truck drivers, an electrician, a vocational teacher and a heavy- construction worker, who are provided with meals and hous- ing while they work, usually dur- ing the summer months. "The value of the gift was greatly increased by the amount and condition of the original tools and machines," said Paul Marshall, owner of Paul D. Marshall and Associates, a Charleston-based architectural firm that is directing the restora- tion. Much of the mill's original machinery is wooden, and vol- unteers are using hardwoods to replace the wooden parts that had deteriorated with age and disuse. These parts include cogs and gears turned by a water- driven turbine that turns the stones to grind grain. The wooden machines are as efficient as today's metal ones, but not as long-lived. Beyond the structure itself, a mill pond, pump house, sluice- way and millrace remain to be constructed. New School Officers' Program Announced All elected class officers in their junior or senior years of high school may apply for the 1991 United States Senate Youth Program, according to Senator John D. Rockefeller IV. Two students fi'om each state and the District of Columbia will be selected to participate in the program and will receive $2,000 college scholarships. First and second alternates will also be chosen, Mr Rockefeller said. The program, to be held Feb- ruary 2-9, will include meetings with senators, cabinet members, officials of the Departments of State and Defense and the Su- preme Court, as well as visits to various Smithsonian museums. "This is a unique, wonderful opportunity for htgh school office holders to experience firsthand lhe way government works," Mr Rockefeller said. "This is an in- tensive study of the federal gov- ernment. "Because the scholarship re- quires students to take two aca- demic years of courses in United States government, history, po- litical science or economics, those selected are on their way to learning even more about our country," Mr Rockefeller added. Selection of delegates to the program is made by the state Superintendent of Schools in co6peratior~ with the high school principals and is based on out- standing ability and demon- strated qualities of leadership. Interested students should contact their high school princi- pals, state Superintendent of Schools or the United States Senate Youth Program at (415) 543-4057 or 90 New Montgom- ery St., Suite 1212, San Fran- cisco, California 94105 for more information.
