Pa., June 5. f/t>) ~i Civic leaders called on the 300,000 residents of the Lackav.'anna Valley: today for "total mobilization" to keep this once wealthy region from economic collapse. Mounting unemployment and a deficiency in industrial plants; threatens to convert this hard coal' city Into a "ghost town." Population has been decreasing steadily in Scranton and the surrounding Lackawanna Valley us more and more miners have been thrown out of work.

A huge rally at the Masonic Temple Wednesday night will serve as the kickotf for the LIFE campaign. Weeks said the drive won't end until Hit? $2.000.000 Is raised. Unnniiloymrnl Rceion The ScraiUon area Is listed as n critical unemployment region by the government. Estimates of the number of jobless men and women in the area range as high as i4 per cent. The Increase is directly attributable to decline in production of anthracite. A half-century ago, hard coal made Scranlon and Its environs one of the wealthiest regions in the land. But the advent o( oil and gas as .fuels and unseasonably warm winters have reduced the output ot hard coal. Employment In the mines and in railroad jobs has fallen off sharply.
