Ml — A Preston County Circuit Court ruling in a dispute over a scam of coal was upheld by the State Supreme Court yesterday. Freeport Coal Co. sought an injunction in the lower court to restrain Valley Point Mining Co. and J. E. and H. K. Kelly from removing coal from the Bakerstown Seam on a 194-acre tract in Preston County's Pleasant District. Valley Point was mining the coal under lease from the Kellys and Freeport stepped in to claim ownership by virtue of a 3902 severance deed. The lower court, before certifying the case to the appellate judges, ruled in favor of Valley Point and the Kellys — holding that the particular seam was ex- potcd from the deed by which Freeport gained ownership.

Stephens recalled his early days in the* priesthood at Keyser some 30 years ago, and extended his greetings to those still residing in the parish, many of whom were present at the ceremony. He said, "a man who is merely educated in knowledge without religion is half-baked. He is just as deadly to society as the moron who would toss a -handful of poison in the town's drinking water." He reminded parents present that the primary task of the Sisters, and of all teachers, is to bring the basic facts of general education and religious training to their youthful charges. "But," he emphasized, the primary education of any child rests with the parents." Bishop Hodges, in extemporaneous remarks, brought congratulations of Bishop Peter L. Ireton whom he said was dedicating a school in another part of the state. Bishop Hodges, no stranger to this area, since he is a native of Joseph P. Spiker, Cleveland, visited his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Spiker, Railroad Street. Clarke Crowe, Cleveland, visited his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Crowe, Paradise Street.

PTA Members Hear Talk By Legislator KEYSER-Cecil Underwood of SistersvilJe, minority leader in the House of Delegates, told members and other local citizens last night at a meeting of the Keyser Parent- Teacher Association that there if a close relationship between the Legislature and schools in West Virginia, and they are troubled with the same educational problems. He stated: "About 25 years ago all com miinilies were to get equal rights and privileges and thus the old school district system went out and the county system came in. The state assumed responsibilities and it was assumed the county unit ivould assume theirs, but such was not the case and local interest in the school system lessened. "The state budget for Education for 1933-34 was ten and one-half million dollars; for 1955-56 it is to be 46 million dollars. "More interest and more concern is needed on a local level. What is needed is to -have equal taxation for each local community. It is necessary to have a longer reach- ng program. Responsibilities should be shared equally between :he state and the county. The dol- ar that is raised in the county should stay in the county and be spent in the county. Following the speaker, a business ;ession was conducted by Mrs. Ross W. Prysock, president. The sudget for the year was presented by Floyd Boor, budget and finance chairman, and the report was accepted. Mrs. Altrude Randall's room hac :ht most parents present.
