CAREERS in the EIGHTIES Skilled Trades for the 1980's CMILLICOTHK, MISSOURI-MWI-PAOI 7 Savings firm drops home loan borrowing rate to 103/4% SIXTH OF 10 PARTS By CHET CURRIER AP Newsfeatures The image of the typical American suburb at the start of the 1980s is an enclave of white-collar commuters who trek back and forth each workday from their jobs in city offices. But in many such communities, and in almost every other city or town with a thriving economy, there is another group of prospering workers whose jobs are closer to home. They are c o n t r a c t o r s , operators and employees of small businesses in plumbing, roofing or a broad range of other services and trades. In contrast to most white- collar fields, success in school isn't necessarily a prerequisite to success in many of these occupations. Some are open to people who haven't finished high school, although in most a diploma is a big help in getting a start. One of several routes to acquiring the skills needed for such jobs is the apprenticeship--a one- to five-year learning procedure that combines on-the-job training with formal instruction and supervision. In 1976, the most recent year for which statistics are available, just under 50,000 people completed apprenticeships registered with the Labor D e p a r t m e n t , a n d another 250,000 were in training. Of those 50,000 completions 59 percent were in construction trades and another 11 percent in metalworking. The rest extended over a range from cooks and chefs to jewelers and dental laboratory technicians. After a sharp rise in the 1960s, registered apprenticeship activity levelled off in the 1970s. Nonetheless, says the Labor Department, "apprenticeship training continues to be important to employers, unions and government policy planners." Many people learn trades in other ways, notably through less formal on-the-job training, the department acknowledges. But in arguing for the idea, the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics observes: "Because employers recognize apprenticeship as an especially thorough training method, completing such a p r o g r a m increases y o u r chances for employment and advancement." Some examples of jobs for which you can train as an ap- prentice, as described by the BLS: -- F o u n d r y occupations. High school diploma usually required in the case of pattern- makers, preferred in the case of molders and coremakers. Industry likely to grow, but new technology may limit expansion of jobs. -- B o i l e r m a k e r s . H i g h school or vocational school g r a d u a t e s p r e f e r r e d . Strenuous work, requires good physical health. Job outlook considered good, but s e n s i t i v e to e c o n o m i c changes. --Barbers. Most states require graduation from approved barber school for license. Typically, beginner works one to two years under apprentice license, then undergoes examination to become registered barber. Job outlook considered better for hairstylists than conventional barbers. --Construction jobs. Includes bricklayers, stonemasons, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, many other specialties. Job outlook considered good in most categories, but building industry sensitive to ups and downs of the economy. -- Auto mechanics and repairers. Diploma preferred but not required. Good preparation available in high school, vocational school or Armed Forces training. Training period three to four years, longer for such difficult specialties as automatic transmission repair. -- Jewelers and w a t c h repairers. Diploma preferred. J e w e l r y apprenticeships specialized in individual skills, such as stone-setting. Training also offered by some technical schools. As with other small business, business courses useful for those planning to open own shops. --Dental laboratory technicians. Diploma preferred. Training available in military service, v o c a t i o n a l a n d technical schools, some junior colleges and colleges. Outlook considered favorable. Whether you choose the apprenticeship route to such jobs may well be influenced by how strong the economy is in the 1980s. "In many instances," the BLS says, "particularly when jobs are plentiful, apprentices drop their apprenticeship in favor of earning a skilled worker's wage immediately. "When the job market is depressed, they are more likely to complete their apprenticeships." NEXT: Opportunities for high-school graduates. SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- In an effort to stimulate the depressed southwest Missouri housing industry, a Springfield savings and loan association has unveiled a program under which a fund of $10 million will be used for reduced-cost home loans at 10^ percent interest. "So far as we know, this is the lowest conventional home loan r a t e i n s o u t h w e s t M i s s o u r i a n d , i n f a c t , anywhere in the country," said William Turner, president of the Great Southern Savings and Loan Association. The 10^4 percent interest rate is about l'-j percent below the average rate quoted in Springfield. A survey of other area savings and loan associations showed an average mortgage rate of 12V 4 percent. Turner said the loans would be subject to renegotiation after two years, with the interest renewable at the existing market level without a prepayment penalty.

HOSENTIIAL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON ( A P ) - The question is, why would the Republicans bother to hold a convention? One thousand, nine hundred and ninety-four delegates and the same number of alternates will go to Detroit to be jostled, bored, shushed and forced to clear the aisle -- all at their own expense. And for what? F o r c h o o s i n g t h e Republican who will represent the party in the presidential election in November. Ronald Reagan has the presidential nomination locked up. nailed down, sewed up, in the bag, iced, wrapped, signed, sealed and delivered. At last' count he had 1,577 delegates in his pocket. Surely the Republican high command knows. So what's the point? "I guess the real answer is that legally they gotta." says one of those glib and knowledgeable Washington sources w h o p r e f e r s t o r e m a i n anonymous. Penny Crunkleton, assistant to convention director Josephine Good, says, with an edge to her voice: "We hold a convention because of the rules." Miss Good, who has been'run- ping conventions since the first lime Dwight Eisenhower got the nomination, was too busy to discuss whether this trip is really necessary. There is nothing in 23 pages of the GOP rules adopted at the 1976 convention which says flatly, "Thou shall hold a convention." The rules do spell out how the convention is conducted, how delegates are chosen, how disputes over seats are resolved and how the roll is called. But the party, like everybody else, sort of assumes that Republicans will convene and that there will be reason to. Of course, there is the matter of c h o o s i n g a vice- presidential candidate and adopting a platform. But Reagan could anoint his running mate in his own living room and the platform might as well be written in disappearing ink for all its lasting impact. Bill Brock, the party chairman, has a ready answer for why a convention. "We needed something to do in July." In a more, serious vein: "There's a time to establish a new commitment and to wrestle in public with the problems this country has through our platforms and nominations. "The very fact the convention itself is in Detroit is part of that. It's an urban community that has felt the full b u r d e n · · of C a r t e r ' s m i s m a n a g e m e n t , t h e u n e m p l o y m e n t , the high prices, the absence of energy."
