Outlook Brlghlmns f Of Area Jobs After d steadily increasing unemployment rate.through the Winter months the job picture should become brighter in'the Clearfield-Philipsburg-DuBois labor market/ In a quarterly report the State Employment Service sai,d' that'the;; rate of joblessness throughout Clearfield County and the, Moshahnon Valley stood at about 7.3-per cent last month, l-ot some 2;500 persons jobless out of a labor force of 34,-300. Back hi October only 3.5 per cent of the eniplgyable peopk were jobless. The figure rose to 5.3 per cent in December. But a year ago, in February 1965, the percentage wa^ 8.7.

The insurance will pay 80 per cent of a person's doctor's bills over and above a $50 deductible. Officials explained the reason for. a deadline is that without it many people might wait until they got sick before starting their $3-a-month payments. This would deal a blow to the insurance program by loading it with, "adverse risks," they said. However; there has been criticism in Congress that the March 31 deadline,' specified by law, is/ arbitrary. The betting was that the administration would ask an extension. The Republican leadership has introduced legislation to extend' the date to Aug. 31. ; area declined by 600. The job losses were in: manufacturing, 100; nonmanufacturing, 200; agriculture, 200 (seasonal loss); and other worker groups, 100. The manufacturmg loss occurred in the durable goods section where the stone, clay and glass products job layoff exceeded a gain in. electrical machmery. Nondurable goods employment held steady due to offsetthig changes reported/by apparel,-textile and related,products, and other nondurables.
