(Auiv.J LOUiUhii Idea of Training Teen-Agers in Business Spreads Through 20 States in Nation By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK, Aug. 8. <AP>- -The idea of training teen-agers to be businessmen Is spreading through the nation. Business firms In 20 states, are behind the movement, known as Junior achievement coinpa/iles. Their success Is a pleasant other side of the teen-age story—an antidote to tho recent accounts of narcotic addition in high schools, of moral laxity among college athletes. Under the junior achievement plan youngsters from 16 to 20 years of age form their own companies, sell stock in them, make and sell products, keep the books and manage (he business, Eighty per cent of the companies make nice proift, but they do so after the young men and women have done considerable nall-chcw- Ing while they risk their own and other people's money. • Junior Achievement, Inc., has been promoted on a national expansion scale only since the fall ol 1949. But in the school year ended In June, there were more than two thousand such companies, manned by nearly 30 thousand teen-age officers and workers. The companies are liquidated at the end of each school year, and usually the youngsters are able to vote themselves a nice final bonus out of the profits. : Firms Back Movement Business firms backing the movement, according to the National Industrial Conference Board, aim "to give American boys and girls a positive education in owning, managing and operating their own businesses so they can learn at first hand the functions of capital, management and labor." Here is how junior achievement companies operate: Each has a business firm sponsor that furnishes three advisors, one each from the accountancy, production and sales departments. Membership is limited to 15, and there Is no featherhedding. Each one has to work. They start by floating a stock Issue. Ench youngs ter must buy one 50-cent share, nnd can buy up to five. Then they must Bell the round around their town They rent a "business center", usually in a school or clubroom, or some business plant. Meets Held Weekly Junior workers meet one evening each week for two hours. At each meeting they first tackle their problems; wage increases, stepping up or cutting back production schedules, sales volume nnd administering personnel—including tho sometimes troublesome problem of absenteeism. Then they start forkin on the product they've chosen to make .and sell. These products or services run wide range. About 40 per cent are manufacturing enterprises. A San Francisco group made hair shnm- poo. S166 Profit Made A Chicago junior company made $166 profit on plastic food bags table cloths and cover sets. A Dayton, Ohio, company made Christmas tree ornament esarly in the school year and then switched to plastic racks. Another in that city made soda straw-holders, footbal plus and coasters. Other junior achievement companies have ranged far afield: newspapers, baby-sitting bureaus, stenographer-service agencies, and even radio program productions for sale lo local firms on community radio stations. In each cmmunity where the groups operate, there is a Junior achievement board, Including civic leaders and representatlevs from business, labor and education. A paid executive director keeps eye on the Junior companies. Hut teen-agers themselves run the show. Watch them again this fall. Obituaries W. P. Samse Dies At Osceola Home Services for William P.

Adams said that when President Vuman "reluctantly signed" the lexlcan labor bill authorizing the greement with Mexico he made it lear lie "was not concerned with upplylng essential labor ... if 'it tampered cur efforts to meet more nsic problems.'" Adams sa!^ the President means: Severe punishment of farmers for ilrhig wetbacks {Mexicans In this ounlry illegally), search of prem- .ses by immigration without a war- ant if they have reason to believe llegals are among workers, setting u'p housing and other living stau- lards, and setting wage .schedules by some union labor dominated committee, leading to. and much sooner than we expect, the unionization of all agricultural labor." Hearings on the bill. Adams said, made It clear that farmers contracting for Mexican Jaborers should not be required to pay more nan the actual cost of transportation and feeding them In Mexico. Flat Charge Planned Despite "the ctenr Intent of the law," Adams said, the U.S. Employment Service intends to make a Hat charge of J15 for each Mexican national and in addition a $7.50 charge for those rccontractcd. "This means," he said, "thai those who now have Mexican nationals that have to be recontraclec will have to pay $7.50 each al though the government ha.s been to no expense.

Of] —Three veterans of the Korean War manned a U-S, bomber which dropped flowers on Hiroshima today—the sixth anniversary of the first atomic bombing. The B-26 approached the city from the south. It traveled the same route as the B-29 superfort which dropped the atom bomb over Hiroshima Aug. 6, 1945, In the closing days of the Pacific War. Pilot of the smaller, flower- bearing bomber was Capt. Ernest Janas, 4919 California Street, Omaha, Neb. He is a veteran of 50 missions in Korea. Also in the crew were Sgt. Gabriel I). Verdi, Bronx 61, New York, and John W. Harris, 593 Park Avenue, Rochester, N.y. Verdi has flown 60 missions and Harris 67. They are gunners. The B-26 dropped two laurel wreaths—both bought by personnel ol the third bomb wing based in southern Japan. The unit also provided the plane. The wreaths fluttered to earth near the ruins of the round-domed Japanese Industrial promotion hall—in the center of the atomic blast. As the bomber disappeared in the clouds, the rebuilt city began a solemn, daylong observance of a fateful day In world history. Shrines and churches were crowded with Japanese paying homage to the estimated 100,000 who died In the explosion. Some Americans look part in the ceremonies. The commemoration program Included donation of toys and candy to orphans and tours of historic sites. Hiroshima is once again a bustling metropolis of some 300,000 population—about the same as before the atomic blast. There has been much rebuilding, but stark reminders of the destruction remain. Industrial promotion hall — a gaunt skeleton against the sky— is being left in that condition as a memorial.
