Judging will be held prior to the parade at the depot. Parade entries are now being so- licited and letters are being sent out to all organizations and churches in the area.

The "Country Christmas" theme was selected from the many sug- gestions in the contest held last year. members of the State Election Com- mission, seeking to be put on the ballot by asking the Court to strike down the law as unconstitutional. In his decision, Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr., upheld West Virginia's requirement that third par- ties obtain signatures on petitions representing 1% of the votes cast in the last election. These signatures must come from registered voters who did not vote in the May prima- ries. The Court also upheld the re- quirement that third parties pay filing fees the same as the major party candidates do, and that signers of third party petitions forfeit their right to vote in the primaries. 'q'he Court recognized that our ballot requirements are no more stringent that the laws in other states," Hechler observed, he also said that the decision will have a calming effect on the conduct of fu- ture elections.

Against, in regard to adults. It is not appropriate for the state to make you a criminal if you choose not to wear a seat belt when you drive or ride in a car. That should remain your choice. HOWEVER, a child does not have the ability to make that choice. ISSUE: ETHICS LAW FOR STATE LEGISLATORS AND OFFICIALS STAND: For.

By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Legal help is not only for law- breakers. At one time or another almost all Americans need the serv- ices of a lawyer --- whether for buy- ing a house, writing a will, establish- ing a business, or dissolving a mar- riage. But how do you find a lawyer who best meets your needs? And, what should you expect from that person? Dale Arrison Grossman, a New York lawyer and college lecturer, says that finding a lawyer may be as simple as turning to the Yellow Pages in the phone book, where they are listed. The local bar asso- ciation also can supply the names of available lawyers and their special fields. Or, the court clerk can pro- vide information on legal assistance available in the community. "Word of mouth is also useful," Grossman says. "Ask friends about the lawyers they have had dealings with." Be frank about your financial ex- pectations when meeting with a law- yer. It might be wise to compare fees, especially because fees may vary according to the legal service needed. In a criminal case, for instance, the lawyer probably will ask for a non-refundable retainer -- a fee paid in advance.
