Many have lived the majority of their lives in this limbo, and have experienced mulliple moves within the child welfare system. None of the 450 will ever return to their birth families, and most of them are legally free for adoption. Many of these youngsters have physical or mental disabilities; some must be placed with brothers and sisters; many are African- American or have racially mixed ancestry. Over half of them are under the age of 12. Advocates from organizations such as Ap- palachian Families For Adoption (AFFA) are working hard to prove there is no such thing as an un- adoptable child. "The numbers are important," says Linda Streets. president of AFFA. "and, they represent very real children, with very real needs to be someone's son or daughter. The general public is unaware of these kids. and we believe making them more vis- ible and getting them registered on the West Virginia Adoption Exchange is essential if we're going to bring these children to- gether with permanent adoptive parents." November is Adoption Awareness month across the U.S. and Canada. Smoking in the Workplace Whether or not to allow smok- ing in the workplace is an issue gaining more and more atten- tion, according to the American Lung Association of West Vir- ginia. In a recent seminar for man- agers and personnel directors, Kathi K. Elklns, ALAWV assis- tant executive director, ex- plained that public opinion has changed in the last few years. People are less accepting of smokers and are more aware of the dangers of secondhand smoke. "In talking about restricting smoking at the workplace, we talk about all employees' right to work in a safe, clean air envi- ronment. With secondhand smoke the third leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, employers who allow smoking may have a very real indoor air pollution problem." In his presentation of the le- gal Issues, John R. Carlson em- phasized that smokers do not have the legal right to smoke. However, their employers may give them smoking privileges In other talks Hoyt Burdock, MD, of Huntington noted the correlation of smoking to lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, emphysema, and other respira- tory diseases. Jim Sullivan, CPA. of Charleston, presented a for- mula for calculating the cost of employing a smoker and the cost of allowing smoking in the workplace. Depending upon whether or not the employer pays for health insurance and other factors, the cost ranges from $500 to $4000 per year. Establishing a smoking re- striction policy can appear to be confusing, says Elkins, but it doesn't have to be. The ALAWV prepared a step-by-step ap- proach to successfully imple- menting smoking restrictions. It is published in the workshop manual including papers from Burdock, Sullivan and Matthew Myers, Washington, DC. attor- neys. Also in the manual are samples of wording for policies and plans for promoting and publishing a policy change. Copies of the workshop man- ual are available for $35 at the state ALAWV office, P. O. Box 3980, 415 Dickinson Street, Charleston 25339, 342-6600. The lung association also pro- vides consultation to companies writing smoking restriction poli- cies and has a variety of quit smoking programs, literature and signage to help implement a new policy.

"You do have to be able to provide a stable, loving home and to be capable of under- standing the past many of these kids bring along with them." Many local and state organi- zations can provide information about waiting children and about the adoption process in general in the state of West Vir- ginia. The West Virginia Adop- tion Exchange, located at Children's Home Society. main- tains a listing of waiting chil- dren. (This program operates through a contract with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.) Also providing information on waiting children in West Virginia are Burlington United Methodist Home For. Children and Youth/ Child Placement Services, and Appalachian Farhllies For Adop- tion.

Accident Claims Life At Westvaco An accident at the Westvaco Corporation's paper mill in Cov- ington, Virginia, ended in the death of a Union woman October 13. Barbara Fleshman Martin, 45, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at 12:20 p.m. The death was determiner)- to be the result of crushing inju- ries from the employee's being pinned between two rolls of pa- per at the plant's Number One machine, according to Westvaco's public relations man- ager Robert Crockett. Mr Crock- ett declined to release informa- tion on the size and weight of the paper rolls, The exact cause of the acci- dent remains under investiga- tion, Mr Crockett said. Mrs Mar- tin had been an employee of the plant since February 1988. PRICES When electric bulbs appeared, Emile Galle, the French glassmaker, designed many unusual lamps, many with dome shades. Cameo glass, which is cut layers of colored glass, makes a colorful and practical lampshade. He personally designed and worked on many of the major pieces, and he said the lamps were inspired by the poems of contem- porary writers like Victor Hugo or Emile Zola. The wooden and bronze or wrought-iron mounts for the lamps were made in an adjoining studio. Galle lamps have been selling for record prices. A lamp that looked like a group of mushrooms sold last year for over $1 million. A 1978 book about lamps commented that although there were many Galle lamps for sale, prices were high. At that time the top price was about $35,000. * * * Q. I am starting a collection of old paperback books. They are some of the few things that I can find at house sales and flea markets for low prices. No one seems to know the good from the bad. I have been choosing books with interesting covers, well- known authors and early publica- tion dates. Any suggestions? The first popular paperback book in the United States was "The Good Earth" by Pearl Buck. It was issued by Pocket Books in 1939. This and the other very early Pocket Books are the rarest and most sought-after paperbacks. Other early books were issued by Avon (1941), Penguin (1935 in England and 1941 in the United States), Popular Library (1943), Dell (1943) and Bantam (1945). Look for the early books by these publishers. The mark used by the publishers changed, so you can learn to recognize the early versions of the Pocket Book kangaroo mark or the penguin used by Penguin. Most collectors specialize and search for subjects like westerns or mysteries. Others buy covers because of a certain artist, or they buy books by one author. There were over 14,000 paperback titles issued by 1959. We suggest you specialize. i Depression glass and the dinner- Ware of the 1930s to '50s are important collectibles today.
