I IIOSTHI 114. - KEYSER And Tri-State Area News (H) Evening Times, Friday, February 29, 1952 Hard Cider In West Virginia Sold Without State Regulation MOHGANTOWN, W. Va.—An ap-, pie drink labeled "hard cider" containing "not over 3.2 per ceiit" alcohol and with a name similar to that : 'of a famous Scotch whisky is being sold at some 75 places in this (Monongalia) county without state regulation. The cider, called "Vat 36," Is being .distributed by the Blue Ridge Distributing Company, which put it in A* a wholesale line last week , Ferris Cecchinelli, proprietor of the distributing company, said to•day that the drink, as far as he has been able to find out, is not illegal in West Virginia, although other drinks labeled as alcohol beverages are heavily regulated. [ One of the first public reports "of the sale of the so-called "hard cider" was made here last week by ^Director James Shepherd of the Recreation Commission who said he •took" a bottle from a boy at Marilla because it was in a whisky bottle. Although it is not regulated and could, presumably be sold to minors or' anyone else with the money to buy. Cecchinelli said he had asked ;all retail distributors not to sell to ithose not old enough to buy this 'state's 3.2 beer. ; The state distributor of the cider 'asked opinions of the State Beer Initiation Held By Chapter Of Moose ROMNEY, W. Va. — Romney Chapter No. im. Women of the Moose, held a Chapter Night program a recent evening. A covered dish supper was followed by an initiation of a class of five candidates. The supper was served by Ethel Heavener, ritual chairman, and her committee. Mrs. Ruth Satterfleld, Fairmont, deputy grand regent, was Mrs. Wendell Hott To Join Husband At England Base MOOREFIELD, W. Va. — Mrs. Wendell Hott left today for New York City where she will board an Army transport for England to join her husband, Cpl. Hott, who is stationed there with the Air Force. She will reside at Burtonwood, and expects to be there from one to two years. Mrs. Hott is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Brown Halterman, Moorefield, and has been employed at Halterman's Dry Cleaners. She is a graduate of Moorefield High School, class of 1949, and at- Commissioner ginia Liqour and the West Vlr- Control Commission a guest. , The class of candidates, initiated ' in honor of Mrs. Satterfleld, included Maude Shahan. Mildred Uller, Muriel Ferris, Doris Kesner and Florence Rinker. There were 40 members present. The program featured songs by Janet Carlile and Linda and Mary Ellen Wolford, students of Romney School. They were accompanied by Sharon Cain. tended Potomac State School, Key- before starting business here, he iadded. In a letter dated January 4, '1352, Chairman C. H. Green, of the 'Liquor Commission, replied: • "It would appear, therefore, that .this product does not come under 'existing state regulations, because it contains less than 3.2 per cent of alcohol by weight." Beer Commissioner Burton Crow wrote, on January 3, that his commission has jurisdiction over all cereal malt beverages, products of the brewing industry, containing not more than 3.2 per cent alcohol by weight. "Therefore," the commissioner •wrote, "Apple Vat Hard Cider does not come withiri the purview of my jurisdiction." Similar statements were received in reply to questions put to the State Tax Commissioner and the U. S Bureau of Internal Revenue. , "It's just one of those things" Mr. Cecchinelli said. "There's no law on it and I don't think there will be because the state would have to regulate every cider-making far.- mer in West Virginia." H« added that the product is put up in whisky bottles (pints and quarts) because it is made by a distillery. The name that's suggestive of the Scotch whisky was something els* again. H* couldn't explain that. President Robert C. Thorn of the Monongalia County Retail Grocers' Association said he knew of only one member handling the elder, and that he believed most of the distri- Parsons High Classes Hold Spelling Bee PARSONS, W. Va.—A spelling bee Is being held among the English students of Parsons High School, with the finals scheduled Tuesday, March 18. The winner will receive a cash award of $20.

O Clarence Mitchell will teach a study course of the Womans Society of Christian Service at Trinity Methodist Church. The theme of the course -will be "The Book of Acts.' The first meeting -will be held a the church Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Pork Gullets Lean Side Meat * 45c Lamb Breast "> 49c butors were small roadside places, and beer parlors that sell it for a joke. At the next meeting of the Grocers, he said, the matter would be brought up and he was sure the membership would approve a motion not to sell the stuff to minors. Asked if the label, name, and shape of the bottle are not misleading, Mr. Cecchinelli said "the stuff is manufactured in New York and distributed in the United States and Canada. I don't think the manufacturer set himself up in business just to take advantage of the fact that the State of West Virginia doesn't have a law governing cider." On the matter of the alcoholic content, the distributor was a little on the hedging side. Hs didn't know whether the stuff, like West Virginia's famous "non-intoxicating beer," would make you drunfc or not; he hadn't tried that much of it. But in Fairmont, another distributor, Anthony DeCarlo, said Vat 36 has only a "trace" of alcohol, not really 3.2 per cent by weglht. Brief Mention Lewis S.
