·E -M.) 30, 1976 » Vifjini» Has U.S. Fallen Prey To Energy Treachery? \ (Coot, from Page 3E.) production, plus another trillion cubic feet imported from Canada, was stilllO TCP less than we needed. Every one of those 10 TCP accounted directly for the loss of 450,000 jobs, making a total of 4,500,000 jobs lost. So there is no mystery at all as to why our unemployment rolls jumped from 5.2 per cent in mid-1974 to 9 Ji per cent in May, 1975. But the worst is yet to cone, By 1MB the. annual production from these gas reterves will have decreased to ISlttF^YrtmnujT requirements then would ctMotfc TCFi How can we possibly get 24 TCFVto make up the difference? The answer itttut we. can't. ' ' "'·'''·, . Canada's actions indicate that by 1980 she might not be able to supply us .with any gas at all; any measurable production of gas from coal by that year will still be a irawlog board wonder; and the most gas Jiat can be expected through liquified nat- iral gas shipments from foreign countries hat year will be less than one trillion cu- ilc feet. In 1980, then, we might have as much as 9 TCP of gas. That will be 2 TCP less than re had in 1975, and 23 TCP less than we rill need for a normal healthy economy (3 y4 per cent unemployment). By straight alculation, that shortage of 23 TCP will result in 10,350,000 persons being unemployed. *· . ' ' ' THE EVIDENCE - «aly a small part of which has been praeattd here - showi beyond doubt that the'United States has been dealt a blow of historic proportions. Not by young foreigners wearing Russian or Chinese soldier suits. And'not by unshaven, unbathed persons carrying signs. But rather by those persons wearing American business suiti.att American politican wits, in whom; we placed our .'greatest trust. "" It is tempting to follow the trtnd of the times and pardon those persons for what they have done to out 1 country. But we can't. Concern for our safety will not allow it. Because many of those who did it, and many of those who allowed it to be done, still hold positions of power over us, and some of them are even seeking, greater power. . '"' ' i ? We must instead investigate .thoroughly those who have controlled our'dejrtiiiy for decades while holding positions of power in our government. Particularly ; those senators arid representatives who have held seats in Congress for 20,30,40, SO and even 56 years. For if the evidence t«lls anything at all, it i!ithat there is a Swrowfil lack of patriotism in the Congress of the United States: ' V . . ·'.'

He came home two weeks ag* and is now recuper- ing. He goes back to Charleston once a week for therapy and says he can see a slow but steady improvement. "My left leg and arm were completely paralyzed for a while," he said. "But now some of my mobility is coming back." McGinnis, meanwhile, has been held at the county jail just a few blocks away. He surrendered shortly after the incideht ; and has given police a signed statement.. The attack shook up many of the 2,500 folks here. Some residents said they knew such things happened all the time in the big cities but they didn't expect school violence in their quiet little farming community, "Nothing like this has ever happened in the eight years I've been prosecutor," said Charles McCarty. "There's never been any violence at,the high school that I can recall." . . . . He said McGinnis had no previous record.

"He snowed absolutely no emotion when we talked with him." Greathouse, who grew up in Spencer, played football at the high school and then went to West Virginia State College, said he had had no previous trouble with the boy. He said the attack was totally unexpected. , ,. Right now, Greathouse is concentrating on his recovery and is trying to regain some of the 40 pounds he lost during his ordeal. He says his doctor tells him he has a good chance of total recovery. "I'm hopeful that I'll be able to teach next fall," he said. "I think I'll be able- to." ' · : . The interview took place on Wednesday.. The preceding Monday had been a day of significance for the two principals of this episode." . . · Greathouse drove a car for the first time since he was assaulted and a Roane County grand jury indicted McGinnis as an adult for "malicious wounding, a charge that carries a twp-to-10-year prison sentence.
