The 'Scenter' In Warren Meeting Place For Teens By DOROTHY LEGLER maintain an interest in it. They Journal-Standard Correspondent WARREN — Warren teenagers have a place of their own. It's in downtown Warren at the "Scenter," an empty store building all fixed up, decorated with pop posters of Marilyn Monroe, the Monkees and other big time celebrities of the entertainment world. New president of the corporation is Zena Graves of Nora. Her companion officers are vice president, David Miller; secretary, Bonnie Held; and treasurer, Terry Lancaster, all of Warren. It's a non-profit making venture aimed toward giving the teen-agers their own "coffee house" and some place to go. Teacher, Pastor Helped "Where can these youngsters go for entertainment? They have nothing in a little town to do. That's why I helped them | get started," said Timothy Mich-j alek, the social science teacher in Warren High School, who has helped them find equipment for the coffee house. Right now they are looking for a juke box that can be used in place of a borrowed record player. They also need restaurant type counters and chairs. "The kids did all the work," Michalek said. The other adult counselor of the group is the young Warren Lutheran minister, the Rev. Jack Maxim. These interested adults have taken care of the legal end of the organizing and incorporating. "We got the idea from the Freeport teen-ager's coffee house," the Rev. Maxim said. "We went down and talked to their leaders, and looked over the place those youngsters have as their own in the YMCA basement. It sounded interesting and so we took some of the Warren High School youngsters that were interested down to see what they thought about it. Many of the graduating seniors of 1968 class helped to get it set up and did painting and cleaning. They felt they would like to help the underclassmen get a coffee house started." Mary Ann Meier, Joe Blair, Cindy Danielson, and Teresa Lietzen who started the venture, graduated this year. They preferred not being part of the first board of directors, bat all have summer jobs, and will go to college in the fall, so [eel the representative membership of the four classes of the high school should get used to the responsibility. Equipment Problem "Our biggest problem was getting the equipment," Mary Ann said. "We got tables from a Freeport concern. They are large, wooden spools, and we are borrowing chairs from one of the churches in town, until we can get some of our own. The toughest part of a nonprofit organization like ours is a low budget." Someone gave them a refrigerator. The building is being "contributed" by L & S Gas Co. mana^ ger, Delvin Spinhirne. They require only that they get insur- ance, and pay whatever expenses are incurred during the month for utilities. This is the teen-agers' first month, so they don't know yet what it will cost. Free Peanuts From a personal observation of one of the few adults allowed to drink coffee at the "Scenter" (they have a rule, "no adults except chaperones allowed") it appeared that one of their expenses would be for the "free peanuts." Every red gingham- covered table has a basket of free peanuts in the center. A cover charge of 25c is charged, free peanuts in the center. A cover charge of 25c is charged. They are open on Wednesday and Sunday nights from 7 to 10. Sunday nights they hope to have live entertainment.
