TRACK The proposal for the West Virginia legislature to appropriate $1.5 million to build a National Track and Field Hall HaM of Fame Funding Meets Area Approval of Fame in Charleston was favored by most persons interviewed in downtown Charleston Friday. ·'I think it's a mighty fine thing. The city of Charleston needs anything it can get to put it on the map and I think Meetings in County Seats To Explain TRIP Process BQOTON HARRISON By Steve* Kravitz that would be one way to do it," said Richard Booton, a Charleston insurance agent. Leon Harrison, a bookkeeper who lives at 1300 Roseberry Circle, said, "1 think it would be all right. It would be great for the athletes." Pat Carroll, of 224 Bradford St., said he favors the proposal because the facility would bring more business to the MRS. ASKBY FOX MISS LANHAM MRS. HORN MRS. FORD State Welfare Commissioner Edwin Flowers has announced that public meetings will be held in each county seat within* the next two weeks to explain the state's new Transportation Remuneration Incentive Program (TRIP). Eligibility for TRIP, Flowers said, is open to all persons sixty years of age or older and those persons of any'age with physical or mental disabilities. Financial eligibility requirements vary with regard to household size. Most persons living alone who have DO more than $1,560 in resources and receive $183 or less in income each month would meet the requirements. "A couple would be eligible." Flowers said, "if their income is below $242 a month and their combined resources, excluding the value of a home, is $3,000 or less." Eligible participants can begin using their TRIP tickets as soon as transportation providers get the necessary 'authorization to accept the ' tickets for fares. . Both public and private carriers can be authorized to accept TRIP tickets. Ticket holders will be able to recognize authorized carriers by looking for an official red, yellow and blue TRIP emblem on ·the side or window of the vehicle. The program will be explained in Kanawha County at 10 a.m. July 1 at the Kanawha County Courthouse. Whale Extinction Fear Eases *·;?:'·!·}· · :' · Agence France-Presse .:..,"· LONDON - The whale is no longer in danger of extinction, -scientific experts close to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) believe. This is the assessment that will greet .the delegations of the world's two major whaling nations, Japan and the,Soviet Union, when they start a week-long discussion with 13 other countries in London Monday on the coming season's level of quotas. . Estimates of the latest whaling stocks are being · made this week by the various scientific committees of the ;IWC. Although the final fi- · gures have yet to be agreed . :upon, it is generaUy understood that the stock positions of the various species have., shown some improvement since last season. Recommendations are expected to go forward to the commission that the 10-year blanket moratorium on all commercial whaling as pro- 1 posedty the United States and strongly opposed by Japan and the Soviet Union is not "biologically" justified at the present time. ; Dr. Ray Gambell, head o f . .-.the whale research unit at the · British Natural History Mu! seum, said categorically that ·he was not in favor of such a '· moratorium as a means of ; stock-management. · '.'Harvesting" of whales still ! is necessary, he added, be- « cause unchecked growth of ;the whale population would mean "food competition" be- 7tween the, species. «·· In air effort to strengthen Uhe commission, Inge Rindal ; of Norway, the present chair-man, has over the past year I visited whaling nations, in- · eluding Brazil, Chile, Peru, - Portugal and Spain, that we.-e ' not members of the IWC. Further approaches were made by the secretary general of the United Nations, resulting in Brazil rejoining after an . ; absence of nine years. · Sunday Gazette-Mail Entered as second class matter at 'he , Post Office at Cfiarieston, w.

It's national publicity for Charleston -- that's what we need to build up the city and I'm a great track fan," said Miss Marsha Lanham of 846 Vine St., St. Albans, who is also a teacher. Mrs. Tom Horn Jr. of 1205 Upper Ridgeway Rd. said, ··I'm all for it. I think it's good for Charleston -- good publicity." "1 think it would be one of the greatest things that could happen to Charleston and would help young people to stay. Too many people are leaving our state," said Mrs. Alice V. Ford, of 1546 Kanawha Blvd. E. Other persons who refused to give their names said they oppose the proposal because of its cost. Several said they thought the money could be put to better use.
