By George Steele Tradition is a matchmaker arranging the lives of two persons who possibly have never met. Tradition is a father turning his back upon a daughter he loves because she married a Gentile. Tradition is the foundation of the lives of the characters of 'Fiddler on the Roof," which is playing now at the Mountaineer Dinner Theatre. But tradition isn't limited to the characters of the play. It embraces the members of the cast as well. Tradition makes a performer anxious to read symbols printed on paper and translate them into three-dimensional persons who dream their dreams and live their lives from curtain to curtain. Tradition gives a performer From Page I Alka-Seltzer's "M o m a Mia that's a - speecy spicy meat ball.' DEVEREAUX and Mrs. Lopate are strong performers in their respective roles. Tevye, understandadly enough, sounds a lot like comedian Alan King. But the similarity isn't distracting. If nothing more, it adds to the humorous way in which the dairyman faces the hardship which confront him: "Monday was no worse than Sunday," he observes at one point. Their three oldest daughters are enjoyably protrayed by Erica Sarzin, Bonnie Sylvor and Evelyn Boyd, who likes to slip among the tables just before the play for an ice cream and vanilla wafer snack. Even if you've seen different productions of Fiddler before, pride. Pride which keeps him you'll probably find it worth josed, going through a mental Moore get something done in West Virginia and one succeeded in disgracing our state . and our people, I wonder how they can now come back again as if nothing's happened and ask the From Page 1 II from people power, Laurita to put them back he exclaimed. in said in addition to Pittston N.J., angrily pointed out that (he company hadn't paid nearly in penalties under saefety legislation Shriver didate in American history to withdrsw from nomination to a national office having accepted such a nomination.

You're close enough to see the person behind the personage. Eight of the members of the cast, who play minor roles, are from the Charleston-Huntington area.

Two of the regular members of the troupe have performed' at the Mountaineer Dinner Theatre before. One is Justin Devereaux, who plays Tevye, the dairyman.

Arlie Robinson, chiet of the Charleston detective squad, said James Myers was shot b y m e n t a .25 caliber handgun at 7 p.m. in the Eagle Sandwich Shop at the corner of Morris Street and Washington Street. He is presently in the hospital where he was brought by Kan awha Valley ambulance service. Police are searching for a man in connection with the shooting. No motive for the shot has yet been established. 5. C. Man Hurt In Car Crash A South Charleston man was admitted to Charleston General Hospital Saturday following an automible accident at Elkhurst, a hospital spokesman said. Warren Walker, 51. of 5420 Ohio St., was in surgery late Saturday with a possible ruptured spleen, he spokesman said. Rights, Mine Safety Added, GOP Approves Platform By BETTY MILLS The Associated Press Amendments calling for legislative review of the Human Rights law and strict enforcement of state mine safety laws were added to the document as the 1972 West Virginia Republi proved by the state convention we Saturday. Another amendment to in stitute a severance tax on min . ,, «.- H erals was defeated by a close savmgl Gl P»n said. voice vote of the convention delegates. Tax relief for the Mountain State's elderly and "economic ally disadvantaged" citizens liighlights the 17-plank platform adopted by the convention. OTHER KEY planks call for the establishment of a state Environmental Protection Agency a separte state office of consumer protection, and the pubic defender system. The amendment dealing with civil rights, offered by the Ca- «Il County delegation, was ini ially opposed by the platform committee chairmen, Senate Leader Chester R. and House Minority Leader George Seibert, both R- Ohio. But Seibert hastily withdrew foe committee's objection to he amendment when, a black delegate from Logan County ose to urge its passage. Seibert later called the "hange offered by the amend- emantics" 'an exercise m- and said the issue was not' worth a convention loor fight. The original language of the latfarm called for "full fund- ng of the West Virginia Human lights commission to insure adequate implementation and enforcement of existing state law, thereby eliminating all f o r m s of unlawful discriminatory practices." The three-point amendment adopted in place of that plank recommended: legislative review of the Human Rights statute with the aim of supplying the commission with the necessahy funds for an adequate full-time staff. ^·Annual legislative examination of the departmental requirements necessary for implementation and enforcement f the law. ^·Enacting such amendments to the assembled 2,200 delegates. Keynote speaker Joseph A. Laurita Jr., Republican candidate for attorney general, called the platform "a fantastic document to run on that reflects a progressive posture for the state of West Virginia." The Monongalia County prosecuting attorney said he was pleased at the recommendations for a consumer protection agency and a public defender system in the state. are n e c e s s a r y to totally eliminate all abuses of a discriminatory nature.

In the area of environmental rotection, the platform calls 'or "stringent control of sur 'ace mining and reclamation", he document's only mention of hat controversial issue. A controversial feature of the platform is the plank on penal reform which supports family visitation for prisoners, including conjugal rights. In the welfare plank, the party said it would "provide every eligible recipient of public assistance with his total basic minimum human needs for such period of time as he must necessarily remain dependent upon his state for support." In a show of party unity for the platform, Del. Orton A. Jones. R-Roane, one of the most liberal Republicans in the legislature, read the prologue from P(i"t I Pirate paigned hard for his re-election with the i n s p i r i n g slogan "Rumpsey-dumpsey, rumpsey- dumpsey, Colonel Johnson killed Tecumseh." The democrats lost the election. ANOTHER JOHNSON-Att- drew--became a household word on his inauguration day when he stumbled in drunk. The poor man, who actually drank less than most of his contemporaries, had b e e n stricken with typhoid fever fol- owing the 1864 election. Before the ceremonies began, A doctor suggested that Johnson drink some whisky for his weakened condition. But Johnson took too much of the medicine. Just as he was about to be sworn in, he launched into a r a m b l i n g , extemporaneous speech, in which he berated limself as well as some cabinet officers and Supreme Court jus- ices. He ended" his talk, accord- ng to witnesses, by giving the Bible a noisy kiss. However, barely more than a month after the inauguration, Johnson inherited bigger prob- ems. Lincoln had been assassinated. Johnson was president. Perhaps the most unusual epi- ode of all when Vice occurred in 1912 President John Schpolcraft Sherman died after laving been nominated to run igain with William Howard 'aft. It was too late to remove herman's name from the ballot, ie became the only dead man n history to receive 3 million otes for vice president.
