Ancient frame building was purchased late last year by its neighbor, Berkshire Bank & Trust Co., which says it has no immediate plans for use of site. Contractor David Deans of Williamstown is tearing down the old building, Business Today Job Openings for Youths Without Skills Tighten By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Teen-age job seekers are a top national problem today. The number wiio can't find work increases even though the total of employed of all ages crosses the 70-million mark for the first time. Even in an expanding economy the problem may gel worse before it improves, because of a still larger influx of youngsters to come. * * * At the other end of the age scale, union workers are centering their battles this year on|]' roduclio ." fields output per worker has gone up by about 35 per cent. * * y Last year 12 per cent fewer motor vehicle workers turned out 55 per cent more cars than lil-18. In the same period, the number of railroad employe; dropped 'Id per cent while freight ton-miles per worker rose 4y per cent. The big gains in total employ mcnt have been in the service industries, and in the technical and more highly skilled jobs in the schemes for job security rattier than higher wage rates. This was the crucial ix>inl in the steel labor pact and in the fight between the railroads and ttieir unions. Even so, in many basic industries the number of employes has dropped while the units of production per worker have increased. Total employment crossed the 60-million mark just 15 years ago. Since then steel production workers have declined in number It is this accent on training and skill which thwarts many teen-age job seekers. Those who are returning to school this fall may achieve the training goals. * * * Many of those who are dropping out of school will still have to scramble for the job opportunities open to beginners. Those whose education isn't enough to take on (he on-job training that a mechanized economy demands by about 20 per cent, although!will be hard pressed. ATTENTION PLEASE!

OUR AUTHORIZED HOMClfAS DISTRIBUTOR Library Painting Means Delay In Issuing Some Books Adult patrons of the North Adams Public Library are pretty likely fo experience some delay in getting books they want (bis week and uext. That's because painters have taken over most of the main floor of the library as they carry out a city contract to redecorate nine rooms. Miss Huth B. Browne, librarian, said this morning that the charging, students' and reference rooms now are being painted and this has necessitated moving more than a thousand books from their usual places. A temporary charging desk has been set up in the main lobby, but Miss Browne said the selection of books is necessarily limited to those in rooms that are not being painted. The painters are expected to finish late this week the rooms in which they now arc working, but then they will start painting the main lobby and the stack room, and probably will be at it for a good part of next week. As a result, it will continue to be impossible for the library staff to get at some books that patrons may want. Miss Browne asked the public to be patient until the redecorating job is finished. 2 School Custodians Attend Convention North Adams will be represented by two men at (he 5!)th annual convention of the Massachusetts School Custodians Assn. opened today in Springfield.
