They plan for another per- spring, and also in the West Festival held at Center in Char- leston. These two clubs are un- der the direction of Adrienne Blesemeyer. "The fun thing about Alderson After School is that each student gets to 'do.' It's all hands-on creative experiences," says Adri- enne Biesemeyer, director. -This time of year is very busy for many students with fall sports. We have had a lot of parents ask if their children can join at the end of October, after soccer and football activities are completed. The answer is "yes,' as long as there is an opening in the class your child Is interested in at- tending. "Besides crafts, science, and dance, we also offer painting and drawing, sculpture and two lan- guages -- French and Spanish. In addition, there is a recrea- tion/study hall for students who simply want to play. but who's parents want supervised home- work done; Ann Maren-Hogan covers this area. "Alderson After School also wants to help students succeed in school. We have a tutoring program that works in two ways. We first match a student with a 'peer tutor' (research has shown that a lot of students learn best from peers), if this is not helpful, we then match the student with a certified instructor," Ms Biese- meyer said. "l'he Alderson community has been very supportive of the After School program. Businesses like Alderson's Gadd's IGA, Eagle Building Supply, Ross' Express Mart, Greenbrier Valley Bank, FCI Alderson, Aides Department Store, Alderson Department Store and many private individu- als have donated time and money to make this program a success," Ms. Biesemeyer states.

All our towns of less than 2,000 people. All are towns served by graduates of the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. Since 1979, eighty-nine of its graduates have settled in towns of less than 10,000 population. Over 180 graduates of the osteopathic school are now practicing in West Virginia. And for what price? $4.4 million. Eleven percent of the state's medi cal education budget or two percent of higher education funding. The fallacy of the Carnegie Report is its charge to the medical school of Marshall to turn focus to primary care and rural medicine. The osteopathic school is already doing that! I urge you to maintain its current level of funding so that it may continue to ful- fill its task of providing physicians to rural West Virginia.
