Dropout Curb Is Adopted WASHINGTON (AP) - Illinois Is among 33 states that have acted by mid-August to curb the number of high school dropouts, the welfare administration has announced. Dr. Ellen Winston, the commissioner of welfare, said Wednesday that public welfare agencies in the 33 states have replied affirmatively on a proposal for drives to keep needy teen-agers in school. Dr. Winston said that three states — Colorado, New Mexico and Vermont—adopted the model back - to - school demonstration project recently sent to all states by the Bureau of Family Services. Federal funds can be used to finance up to 100 per cent of the cost of such projects. These projects involve visiting the families of all children 13-17 who are in the aid to families with dependent children program, working out plans to assure their return to school, and evaluating the success of the effort later this year.
