Teenagers, if given a place to use as a canteen, would be willing to work lo fix it up, they said. They thought an old mill building might be a good spot for a canteen. The girls admitted that a canteen might not keep all the boys off the street*. But they were sure it would remove most of them and would be attended by all the girls. Why Wanled? Why do teenagers need a canteen? "We don't want to stay home and watch TV or something," the girls answered. They said [hey were confident they would get the signatures of most teenagers and many adults. Meanwhile, police las^ night — the second night of curfew enforcement — reported no incidents. Youngsters getting out of the movies after 10 o'clock — some of them reluctantly carrying notes from their parents — reported going home without being stopped by police, Pittsfield to Get $129,271 to Survey Second Renewal Job Pillsfietd will receive $129,2711 — . for surveying and planning the DJ city's second urban renewal project, the federal Urban Renewal Administration announced Friday.

Police said the car, operated by John Rohane, 18, of 25 Natural Bridge Rd. had been spotted speeding by a postal em- ploye who stopped the three youths and questioned them and took the registration number. The postal employe told Ihe mayor a neighbor, about the incident and together they searched for the vehicle without success, and then notified police.

Edmund R. St. John Jr. Sen. St. John supported a bill to authorize the county to pay Arthur S. Menard, a retired Pittsfield Public Works Dept. engineer, $251.74 for services in 1961. County Treasurer John J. Shields has held up Menard's pay on grounds that Ehe law prohibited the County Commissioners from hiring Menard because he was a city pensioner. Pensioners are not allowed to work for the state or any of its subdivisions. 'Sen. St. John contended (hat Menard should not be made a victim of a mistake by county officials in government. The senate agreed and voted in favor of he bill despite opposition from Sen. Antone L. Silva of New Bedford, chairman of the Committee on Counties which had given the Menard bill an adverse report. The bill comes up for another reading Monday and then goes to the house. Observers give it a good chance of passage there. Miss Mary G. Molloy Hospitalized by Fall Miss Mary G .Molloy, retired principal of Johnson School, is a ratient at North Adams Hospital, where she was admitled at 4.40 o'clock Thursday afternoon after she had been injured in a fall at her home, 146 Veazie St. Her physician, Dr. Harvey H.

City Solicitor Bernard Lenhoff, while not voicing an opinion on the validity of North Adams' curfew law, said, "Until the law is ruled by the courts to be invalid, it is enforceable, it has to be enforced." It bans youngsters 16 end under from the streets between 10 p. m. and 6 a. m. unless they are going to or from work or have permission to go someplace. Never Ruled On Curfew ordinances have apparently never been ruled on by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. At least Iwo Bay State communities besides North Adams have had curfew laws on their books— Everett and Wai- lham. In his book, "Municipal Corporation Lnw," Georgetown University Law Professor Chester J. Antieau writes: "Any municipal ordinance regulating personal movement and conduct must be drawn wilh clear standards and slrictly limited to situations reasonably imperiling the communily." In 1957, he points out, a law similar to North Adams' was held unconstitutional by a California court. "Insofar 8s the ordinance would liberty," Prof. Anlieau said. Some Upheld On the other hand, he gives several examples of curfew laws that have been upheld by the courts. One legal authority here feels the question boils down lo the definition of what reasonably imperils the communliy. This authority, who preferred lo be unnamed, felt that the present teenage situation on th» city's downtown streets at night represented a peril to the com. munity and the teenagers themselves. Under Ihe Constitution, a teenager has the same rights of personal liberty as an adult, Mr. Lenhoff said. Rights Whlllled Down But Ihe const! tu I ion a I rights of bulh adulls and juveniles have been whittled down by the powers granted the police and other regulatory bodies designed to protect the public welfare. Zoning, for instance, is an infringement on personal liberty. And zoning for asthetics, common in many comunities, is an even further Infringement. The only way to find out if the curfew in this city violales the rights guaranteed in the Constitution would be for a citizen to take a test case to the courts. Mrs. John F.
