, - COLOR AO S. F. Holy Week ! 'Wed., Apr. 2. 1 969 irtrb Probation Cliief Will Quit Early Gaetjen Out Tomorrow By Ernest Lena Chief Juvenile Probation Officer Elmer Gaetjen, a fatherly figure at Youth Guidance Center for 27 years, will retire tomorrow a month earlier than scheduled. He. named Mrs. Rose McGrorey Acting Chief Probation Officer until May 1, when his retirement becomes officially effective. Gaetjen, who reaches the mandatory retirement age of 63 this month, said he is leaving earlier to utilize some of his unused sick leave.

Subsequently he served as superintendent of Juvenile Hall there for 13 years and was appointed Chief Probation Officer in 1966. In a parting slap at what he termed "the small group of bleeding heart critics," of Youth Guidance Center, Gaetjen said: "They choose to ignore the fact that felony-type juvenile crime is soaring here. They would want us to pat hardcore juvenile delinquents on the back youngsters who knock down and rob people and release them. "Where parents failed, where discipline in the schools has broken down, the critics expect us to rehabili tate these youngsters over , night 'They choose to ignore the fact that a Juvenile Hall un der the law is only a temporary holding place, for the protection of a child or the protection of the community, and not a rehabilitation center, . "Money could solve many of Youth Guidance Center's problems. "We urgently need a rehabilitation-treatment center for delinquent girls. We have the Log Cabin and Hidden Valley facilities for delinquent boys near La Honda, but nothing comparable for girls. ; Weinstein ' Firm Hits Ad Rates in Suit The successor to Weinstein Co., Inc., owner of six de partment stores here and in Hayward and Sunnyvale claims tne ish5 newspaper combined advertising rates forced them out of business in 1966.
