MORQANTOWN - All levels of West Virginia government have beea strengthened by graduates of West Virginia University's Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree program -- jpore than half of whom have remained in the state. Herman Merlins. WVU professor of public administration and coordinator of the MPA program, believes. Since the first MPA graduating class in 1970, a total of 77 of the program's 138 graduates have chosen to remain in West Virginia. "Of those who have stayed in West Virginia," Dr. Mertins said, "41 have taken positions with state government in Charleston, eight with county and local governments, eight in regional government, and three are working in the state for the U.S. government. The others are working in administrative positions in business and industry and in private, non-profit organizations:" BEFORE THE WVU program began. there was no institution in the state providing graduate-level, professional training in public administration. "We decided to start the program for people who wanted to make government a career and we think we've had a good deal of impact since that time," Dr. Mertins said. "We get evidence of this largely from people who have hired our graduates, Employers cite different kinds of talents and capabilities that our graduates bring to the job -- capabilities that weren't there before." The MPA program works to attract West Virginians who are interested in working for their state. "Prior to this program," Mertins explained, "many of these individuals would have a difficult time opening up channels to a state government job. Now, however, completion of this program can mean a great deal to younger West Virginians who want to remain in their state. They are finding jobs."

A greased pole was used for one of the events of a Fourth of July Bicentennial celebration at the American Legion Home Friday, and at 11:54 p.m. the fire department got an alarm that it was on fire. When firemen arrived, Chief John Mills reported, they were bombarded with bottle rockets, fireworks bombs, beer bottles and rocks. Fireman Gregg Mercer was hit in the eye by a bottle rocket. One of Bob Byrom's hands was cut by a beer bottle. Firemen withdrew and took the two injured men to the hospital.

It was the second attack in less than 24 hours on Catholic premises in the county. Police said the explosive had been planted on the roof of St. Congall's social club in Victoria Lane. All of the injured were released from the hospital after first aid treatment. * » « SIX PEOPLE were also injured Friday night in the bombing of the Catholic-owned Pheasant Inn at Martinstown. One of the injured was a pregnant woman still hospitalized 72 hours later. The bomb was tossed into the inn from a passing car and blew out every window and a door. Police said both attacks appeared to be the work of Protestant extremists in ' Northern Ireland's sectarian feuding. Meanwhile, in Whitehead, also in'County Antrim, three men burst into the home of an 18-year-old Protestant and shot him in both kneecaps while his parents were asleep upstairs. .-: "KJieecapping" is the usual form of disciplinary action used both by Protestant militants and the predominately Catholic Irish'Republican Army. YELLVILLE, Ark. (AP)-The Rainbow Family of Living Light annual festival ended Saturday, with just a few family members remaining to cleanup the festival site, Sheriff Ralph Lee "Cotton" Methvin said. Methvin said he doubted the long-haired youths who belong to the back-to-nature religious cult would ever return to Marion County because "there are too many squirrel hunters in this area." During the week-long fesitval, Methvin arrested eight members of the Rainbow Tribe--five for nudity and three for public drunkeness. He said he made the arrests to show the Rainbow Family that they weren't wanted in Marion'County. Kanawha Bookmobile Stops Set Four of the persons arrested remained jailed here in lieu of $250 bond, Methvin said. Methvin said about 700 persons attended the festival, which officially began Tuesday. The festival was held along the Buffalo River on land adjoining the Ozark National Forest. "I think the real reason the group gets together is for the nudity and sex," Methvin said. "If it weren't for the sex thing, I think their numbers would be a lot smaller." Methvin said he hadn't been to the site of the festival since early in the week, and wouldn't be able to assess the damage--if any--caused by the festival. '"'All I know right now is that they're pulling out, and I'm ready for it," he said.

It soon passed out of view, leaving the crane to its lonely vigil. (Staff Photo by Jack Kern) From Page One False oegouating with the agency he first heded about a subject as serious as polyvioyl chloride. Ruckelshaus' reputation for integrity grew, at least partly, from his refusal to obey orders from President Nixon to dismiss special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. which led to his dismissal as deputy attorney general during the "Saturday Night" Massacre" of Oct. 20, 1973. "I'm personally very disappointed that Bill Ruckelshaus by'his own choosing would put himself in this difficult position," said one senior scientist involved in the polyvinyl chloride matter. "It is unfortunate." John R. Quarles, the deputy director of the EPA and a close friend of Ruckel- shaus, said in response to an inquiry that he had total respect and trust for his former boss. "One of the issues that has bothered me all along, however, is that the industrial side has been represented by far more intensive legal and technical support than the other side, and this imbalance has grown over the years," Quarles said. Ruckelshaus himself, who headed the EPA from December, 1970, -until April, 1973, said in an interview last week that he saw no problem in his representing the Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc;, before EPA. The society is the trade group that is playing the lead role in writing the proposed air control standards for the highly dangerous chemical. "I have been very scrupulous to avoid any conflict of interest and have tried to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest," Ruckelshaus said. "I am never going to ask anyone at EPA to do something that is not in the public interest. Of course, they might not agree with my definition of public interest." Ruckelshaus, 43 years old, said that the society was only one of his clients with matters before the agency and that about 50 per cent of his law firm's current business concerned legal problems involving EPA. Swim Class Begins July 21 in City Sheriff's Camp Open to Girls For First Time For the first time in its 19-year history, the Kanawha County Sheriff's Youth Camp will be open to girls.

He added, "And I'm reasonably confident that we"would have found it." A swim class for youngsters from 3 to 5-years-old will be given by the Charleston YMCA, beginning July 21.
