County College Head for Pupils Paving More J «J HARRISBURG (UP)--The Gov ernor's Commission on Higher Education opened a second daj of conferences today with stat educators and school administra tors after hearing a warning tha students and their parents rnus bear a larger share of the finan cial responsibility for college train ing. The commission,, in a series o meacings with groups of private and public educators f r o m throughout the Commonwealth, i seeking recommendations for a revision of its unsuccessful 195 legislative program for the expan sion of Pennsylvania colleges universities. The Rev. William G. Ryan president of Seton Hill College Greensburg, was one of severa educators who urged Monday tha students pay more of the growing coat of a higher education. A college degree, the Rev. Rya said, has been estimated to be worth about 5100,000 in additiona earning power to its holder. Bj state subsidies and by the lowe. salaries paid feachers, many stu dents receive the degree "practi cally · for nothing," he said. "Why should the state or col leges gave the student $100,000,' he said 1 . "We must get it across to the people of the United States that the opportunity for a higher education does not mean the opportunity for a free higher educa tion.";' Weather Extremes NEW YORK (UP)--The nation's high temperature reported Mon day was 81 degrees at Santa Ma ria, Calif.

MUrray 4-3991 Mediators Meet With Principals In Trolley Strike PITTSBURGH (UP) -- Federal and state mediators met today with negotiators for the striking Pittsburgh Railways Co. employes. The mediators planned to confer with company officials later in the day in another effort to resolve differences in the city's 51-day transit strike. There were prospects the union may submit a counter-proposal to management's most recent offer which could result in resumption of joint bargaining talks. The company offer, calling for a three-year contract with wage increases totaling 26 cents an hour spread over the life of the pact, was rejected overwhelmingly by the strikers last we-ek. Meanwhile, Joseph W. Feldman of the Golden Triangle Assn. said union leaders had turned down an association proposal to operate free bus service into the downtown area. The association had planned to operate bstween 50 and 60 buses during off-peak hours during the day and evenings. Named to Head Features Syndicate NEW YORK (UP)-- Fred J.

Select Watreas Jurors Pa. (UP) -- Two jurors who told the court they believed in capital punishment were selected today in the murder trial of Joseph Watreas, 29. Masontown miner charged with strangling an elderly grocer. Mrs. Ruby P. King of Uniontown and Mrs. Dorothy B. Blaney of Perryopolis were seated as the 8th and 9th. jurors despite the fact they believed in the death penalty. Botii defense and Commonwealth attorneys offered no objections. The morning session was devoted to examination of 13 veniremen. Eleven were dismissed for various reasons. Seven jurors were selected Monday as the trial got underway in Fayette County Court. Watreas. who has pleaded innocent, is being tried for the murder of Alvie Partridge, 81, in the victim's Masontown store last July 29. During preliminary questioning, each prospective juror was asked by Deputy Clerk of Courts John Kondrla if they had "conscientious scruples on the subject of capital punishment" which would prevent "you from returning a verdict of murder in the first degree, the penalty for which may be death?" If the reply was yes. Asst. Dist. Atty. David E. Cohen then would | ask 'Are your scruples so strong they would prevent you from fixing the penalty at death even though the crime is proven beyond a reasonable doubt?" Jurors Called The jurors seated when court adjourned Monday were Eugene Marciniak, Grindstone; Mrs. Edna Bailey, Searights; Mrs, Edith Dunston, Connellsville; Mrs. Joan Borish. Isabella; David J. Townsend. Fairchance; Mrs. Henrietta | Rupp, Uniontown, and Mrs. Lola Migrock. Banning. The prosecution had used five of its 20 peremptory challenges and the defense four. The state had used 29 challenges for cause. based mostly on scruples against capital punishment, and the defense one. Partridge, his hands and feet bound, was found strangled with a piece of "shotfire wire" of the type used in mine blasting. No money was taken from the store, leading authorities to believe the slayer was frightened away be fore he could rob his victim. Watreas, married and the father of two children, was arrested in Florida two weeks after Partridge \vas found dead. THE DAILY INDEPENDENT, Tuesday, Dee.
