4F--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gazette-Mail -- Charleston, West Virginia 'Get Involved' Theme for Life Style and Clothes "Get involved." It sounds more like a political slogan than the theme for a fashion show, but when Wednesday rolls around at Stone and Thomas, it's going to be a little of both. Getting involved is what it's all about for today's action- oriented schoolgirl. Her involvement ranges .from campaigning for her favorite can- didate to picking up on all the great new looks in clothes. And so, with the c o n t e m p o r a r y scholar's diverse activities in mind and election year excitement in full swing, Stone and Thomas will turn to a political motif and the theme, "Get Involved," when it stages its annual back to school fashion show, set for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday on the second floor. The Nina Denton Dancers, Melea Haines, Suzette Peyton and Jennifer Kirkland, will furnish the entertainment, accompanied by pianist Bunny Shreve. The show will consist of five scenes, "Classics Revisited," "Sweater Dressing and Boulder Shoulder," "Pastels and Menswear Influence," "Elegance of Evening," and the finale. Models will include both high-schoolers and coeds. sleeves and hood. Rabbit rates fashion prominence again in the form of the furry battle jacket worn by Pam White ·with flared leg pants. Nancy Smith sports the still-going- strong layered look in cuffed · pants that have the new high- rise waistband and fuller legs a striped, short-sleeved sweater and a bone-colored shirt.

Miles, who has worked for 20 years in various mining jobs, is the new head of the D e p a r t m e n t o f M i n i n g Engineering Technology at West Virginia Tech. "All the statistics available to us predict that the demand for coal will double in the next ten years," Miles said. "And the m i n i n g business is becoming more complicated every day. Not only have the new safety laws greatly increased the complexity of coal mining, but the need to recover higher and higher percentages of the coal seam from the earth to conserve existing supplies has also contributed to this complexity." k l N REALITY,fech has been in the mining education business for several years through option offerings with .the civil, mechanical, electrical, and drafting and design e n g i n e e r i n g t e c h n o l o g y programs. "We currently have about 45 students enrolled in mining option programs from the other technologies," said L. Wood Buell, dean of the community and technical college. He continued, "All of these people will be specially trained to work in the coal industry, and I'm sure all of them will get jobs in the in- d u s t r y w h e n t h e y a r e graduated. What we are trying to do with the mining e n g i n e e r i n g t e c h n o l o g y program is to provide the m i n i n g i n d u s t r y w i t h technicians more broadly suited for mining management positions. "Graduates of the two-year program, counting the experience factor, will be able to i m m e d i a t e l y step i n t o positions as direct assistants to mine managements.?' r ,. JOHN MILES The experience factor is a summer internship in coal industry for each mining student. Miles said, that state mining laws require an employe to go through a long orientation period before he is allowed to enter the mine alone. The s u m m e r internship, he said, was a perfect time for a prospective technician togetthereiqujred training. SOME OF THE COURSES mining technology students will be taking include: fundamentals of mining and safety engineering: mining draft i n g : m i n i n g l a w s a n d management; mining geology and rock mechanics; mining surveying; mining equipment, controls, and applications; mine design, ventilation and drainage: and coal preparation and waste disposal. Miles also pointed out that he is arranging for many of the laboratory courses to be offered at actual mining sites. "West Virginia Tech is located in the heart of the bituminous coal fields of West Virginia, and is in a uniquely favorable position to offer t r a i n i n g i n m i n i n g technology." Burell said. "I expect our graduates to receive some of the finest training and probably the greatest amount of practical mining experience offered in a t w o - y e a r t e c h n o l o g y jprpgram in this coilntry," '.";.'

Program Attacks Life's Problems Today "American cities are choking from filth, reeling from disorder, starving from poverty, convulsing from chaos. 1 ' No longer a prophecy of things to come, the statement q u o t e d a b o v e h a s been become fact if mayors, city planners, politicians, national government officials, environmentalists and, more and more, academicians are to be believed. Clarence E. Roth believes it a n d , c o n s e q u e n t l y , h a s designed and now heads a new program at Morris Harvey College which deals directly with these unsettling facts of American urban life. i Although at present a ; modest endeavor. Roth en| visions the Urban Affairs Program at Morris Karvcy gaining momentum and importance in the critical years to come. All major degree fields at Morris Harvey require work in allied fields to complement them and. for the present, this is the status of the Urban Affairs Program. But, explained Roth, the program has attracted a lot of students, although it's still in a relative stage of infancy, and the courses relating specifically to urban affairs have been filled each time they were taught. THE REASON is simple. Roth said, in that the program is relevant to any field, from art to biology. As a matter of fact courses from both these areas are included in the interdisciplinary curriculum. Why art? "Because. Roth e x p l a i n e d , a r t h i s t o r y provides an important consideration of various forms of architecture and their evolution, and architecture, of c o u r s e , is p a r t of citv planning. The biology courses are ecology-orieht'ed-'aftd'.^ · CLARENCE ROTH remainder of the curriculum draws on social and political, or people-oriented, aspects cf the problems as well as providing a solid background in how cities are run. The Urban Affairs Program requires a total of 18 semester hours, 12 of them chosen from t h e i n t e r d i s c i p l i n a r y curriculum. There are only two courses which are absolute requirements and they total the other six hours. AS AN ALLIED field, the program is open to students who are p u r s u i n g a departmental major in any of 10 d i f f e r e n t , fields--art, e c o n o m i c s , E n g l i s h , geography, history, religion and philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology or speech: In the past, Roth has arranged for students to work with environmental agencies, the Charleston major and city manager's offices, the YMCA p r o g r a m s , a n d several church-related programs.
