Boroii^h iwllce stated that at 8:48 p.m. Tuesday at the inter- secticz oi Market st. and Fourth ave., a car driven by Elizabeth L. Blyler, 42, of 107V2 Cayuga St., Warren, was struck by a car operated by Mildrew V. Demple, 30, of 511 East St., Warren. Police cited Mrs. Blyler for a red light violation. Total damage was listed at $500, according to police. High school students who are thinking of quitting school were advised today to return toclass- es when school reopens and earn their diplomas. "Don't be a dropout," is the way Andrew J. Donick, manager of the Warren office of Pennsylvania's Bureau of Employment Security voiced this advice. Donick pointed out that education qualifies an individual for more opportunities for full-time work and reduces the chances of long periods of unemployment. High school dropouts experience two to three times as much unemployment as do graduates, he stated. He also noted that unemployment among high school dropoirts is eight times higher than among college graduates. While the percentage of high school graduates who drop out of school is growing smaller each year, the Bureau official said that the number is growing larger because of the increasing teenage population. This population increase coupled with the decreasing demand for unskilled workers makes unemployment among 16-and 17-year- olds the highest of all age groups, Donick declared. Records of the Bureau's State Employment Service show that during the 1966-67 school year, 21,559 students in the Commonwealth dropped out of school to enter the labor market before they completed their secondary school education. The reported Pennsylvania school dropout total for the 1965-66 year was 20,350, or 1,209 fewer. CMf the 21,559 who prematurely left secondary school during the year ended in June, 6,704, 31.1 percent, registered at various Local BES Offices throughout the state. Employment counseling was given to 5,353 dropouts, 79,8 percent of those registered. This represented an increase over the previous year of 222 in the number of registrants and of 549 in the number counseled, A total of 1,787 dropout job placements were made by Bureau offices last year as compared to 1,764 the year before. Donick reported 31 school dropouts in the Warren BES Office area during the 1966-67 school year. Of these, he said, 13 were registered at the bureau office, 13 were counseled and five were placed in jobs. The local bureau official's suggestion that teenagers finish high school before they enter the labor market is in keeping with the sentiments of many community leaders, both on the national and local levels, "Education has a dollar and cents value," Donick said, "A U.S. Labor Department survey shows that lifetime earnings of a high school graduate are $76,000 more than those of a grade school graduate and $49,000 more than a high school dropout can anticipate, A college graduate can expect to earn $103,000 more than a high school graduate," Asserting that an education in itself won't guarantee success but will open doors leading to importunities, the local man­ ager pointed out that the need for unskilled workers is diminishing each year. At the same time, he said, scientific advancements are opening many new fields in which skills are needed. Donick declared that most employers today insist on hiring high school graduates who, by earning their diplomas, have demonstrated the abilities to learn and to stick to a task. High school dropouts often become "drifting hoboes," he added, going from one unskilled job to another. They also are the first to be laid-off in any job cutback, "Stay in school. School is your big chance. It helps prepare you for the jobs that will bring lifetime rewards if you are ready for the opportunities," Donick stated. At the same time, he reminded teenagers contemplating dropping out of school because they must earn money, that the Warren BES Office, 237 Pennsylvania ave, w., is a government agency where persons may register for part-time as well as full-time jobs. As part of the Bureau's new Human Resources Development Program, emphasis is being placed on finding part-time jobs for needy youths during the school year to help them complete their education, Donick concluded. Charged With Larceny A 20-year-old Michigan man, who had been residing at a Mission Home in Jamestown, N.Y,, has been charged with larceny by borough police officer Edward Peterson, In county jail in lieu of $500 cash or $1,000 property ball is Edward Lee Osieczonek, of 401 Quimessec St., Iron Mountain, Mich. Police said that on August 31, they received a complaint from Zenon Llshchynskyg, of 7 Second ave., Warren, that a wrist watch, college class ring and some change had been stolen. According to police, the accused man was also a tenant at the Second ave. address and was moving out the day of the larceny. Peterson said the stolen articles had been sold by Osiec­ zonek and an investigation was continuing to find out where the items had been disposed of, Osieczonek stopped in Warren yesterday for a coke, was recognized by Peterson and arrested, police reported. Plan Reception The Division 10 reception for Sir Knight Harold E. Stokely, Right Eminent Grand Commander and Mrs. Stokely, will be held Saturday, Sept. 16 at Pleasant township fire hall with Warren Commandery 63 as host. Dinner will be served at 6:30p.m. Reservations should be made with the recorder Albert F. Jackson, P.O. Box, 203 Warren by Sept, 9.
