Chronicle Telegram (Newspaper) - October 22, 1972, Elyria, Ohio John d. Mccrea chief juvenile probation officer of Lorain county says juvenile assault offences Are on the Rise. Here Busy in his office he takes time to explain what is behind the increasing trend. It photo by Carl Skalak teen age violence rising Here from Page 1 almost anything gets the idea that the Only Way to solve any thing is by violence. He used the example of a juvenile who hit a teacher. It was the Ivay he planned to solve problems even though it is unacceptable in society. Mccrea listed drugs and alcohol As popular among the youth of Lorain county. Because of depressed inhibitions it makes them act irrationally and they do not think of the con sequences. The easily attainable marijuana is the most popular among area teens. Amphetamines and barbiturates Are the next most popular according to Mccrea. He used an example of two youths who severely victimized another person. They were using drugs and really did not re Alize what they were doing. An increase in the use of drugs and alcohol was apparent in the annual report of the Lorain county court of common pleas. Domestic relations. In 1970. 42 cases of acts by juveniles injurious to their health and morals were reported. This includes both the use of drugs and alcohol. In the 1971 report the figure was nearly doubled with 83 reported cases. Although there was no indication of an increase of assault crimes in the 1970 and 1971 statistics. Mccrea believes the use of drugs and alcohol is a great contributing Factor. But again the actions of Young people Are reflections of their parents. A child s Mother May be taking pills for even thing. His father May be an alcoholic. The youth sees his parents actions and follows their example. Parents in Lorain county Are concerned about their child Ren s welfare when they attend sports activities at their schools. Mccrea made some suggestions that might help parents keep their children from being victims of circumstance. Mccrea said it is very important for parents to know the friends of their children. He is very optimistic about the Young in the county and believes a great majority of them can be trusted. But when a teen Ager goes to a sports activity especially at night the parents should know with whom they Are going and what time they will return. There Are a handful of juveniles attending school activities just looking for trouble. The sad part is when innocent people Are involved. Mccrea said a rivalry May exist and that it is legitimate but it is alarming to see weapons being used by juveniles. The offenders in the cases of juvenile assault Are treated according to the seriousness of the offence. The Zudse. Orose Tutor. And probation officials decide if the charges Are Seri Ous enough for the youth to go to court. If they Are not. The juvenile is referred to probation. The probation officers make a Complete investigation into the Case putting More emphasis on the offender than the offence. Some of the restrictions of probation Are a curfew investigations on the youth s performance at school a Driver s License suspension and restrictions preventing the youth from attending athletic activities. I would say that probation works in 90 per cent of the Mccrea said. Probation officer in t going to do anything for a youth. He does it for he added. The probation officer attempts to establish rapport with the juvenile but it is up to the youth to decide if he is going to straighten himself out. Mccrea is satisfied with the probation department but sees More need for cultural and recreational programs for juveniles and believes juvenile crime will be reduced by putting More Effort time and Money into programs for the youth of Lorain county.

New clues Spur Bogg plane search Anchorage. Alaska up the search for demo cratic House majority Leader Hale Boggs was concentrated yesterday around a group of offshore islands after the air Force said it re evaluated re ports by California citizens band radio operators who placed a plane in trouble in the area. The air Force said a voice heard by the radio operators could have come from the plane carrying Boggs and three others that has been missing in Alaska for six Days. Other indications surfaced that the twin engine Cessna 310 might have been in the area of Sitka. A City located on one of three islands South of Juneau. The plane was carrying Boggs from Anchorage to Juneau for a fund raising dinner when it disappeared monday. Pilot Don e. Jonz had asked about the weather at Sitka be fore he took off. An air Force spokesman said. Jonz frequently used Sitka As an alternate Landing strip when Juneau was closed because of bad weather the spokesman said which was the Case on monday. When the plane went Down monday five californians re ported having heard Many de tails from a Pilot in distress in Alaska. However the conversations were eight hours after the Boggs plane would have run out of fuel. For this reason plus doubts about the plane s having citizens band equipment aboard an air Force spokes Man said earlier this week that the reported conversations just did t jell with what we but the californians. Who make occasional Distant contacts because of Freak weather conditions were flown to an chorale for interrogation. Col. Earl Ray. An air Force spokesman said yesterday it is Clear that if we assume cer Tain things the distress signals could have come from the missing Cessna 310." what has to be assumed is that the Pilot. Don e. Jonz. Landed the plane somewhere on his 550-mile flight from Anchor age to Fairbanks and then took off again. About 50 abandoned air stripes without communications exist along the route. It also must be assumed that Jonz had aboard citizens band equipment which is not com Mon for planes in Alaska and perhaps that his Normal equip ment was not functioning. The californians said the voice they heard indicated that he had landed and then took to the air presumably because of some technical difficulties. Maj. Ken Shelley another air Force spokesman said to the Best of his knowledge this had not been mentioned in Ini tial reports received by the Alaska air command Victor Parker of Nevada City. Calif., said he heard a Pilot report that he As 100 Miles Over the water with an hours Supply of fuel left. Later the Pilot said. Of. My god. Pm going to hit the after an interval the Pilot spoke of slipping possibly toward water. The last trans Mission was too garbled to understand. The Pilot had out his location at 12 Miles Southwest of Juneau. But an intensive search of this area proved fruitless. Par Ker speculated that the Pilot was lost. Of a o recordings of the conversations exist because it is against Federal communications commission rules for Citi Zens band operators to make recordings.

Lung cancer kills up to 91 per cent of its victims and its incidence in the United states has been steadily growing. Acs reported the rate this year among men. Who Are most often affected is 18 times greater than it was 40 years ago. Despite the grim figures the society said lung cancer is a largely preventable disease since most lung cancer is caused by unfortunately it is difficult to diagnose in time for acs said in its publication "73 cancer facts and there will be 79.000 new cases of lung cancer during 1973. The society estimated. 3.000 More than during 1972. The predicted incidence for lung cancer matches that for cancer of the Colon and rectum a disease that has stabilized in recent years in its incidence and mortality.

I la Call him and explain that in the process of making the repairs we be found additional problems that will raise the Bill another of course the owner can refuse to have those extra repairs made but he usually agrees to them once we Tell him that we d have to charge him anyway just to put the engine Back together again. Sometimes after he agrees to the escalated figure we can talk him into approving still another Worth of unnecessary repairs by convincing him that if certain work in t done now hell need even More expensive repairs later another deceitful technique is to charge custom ers for parts that Are not actually put in. In Chicago recently a Man took his car to a Mechanic to have a leak in the Brake fluid master Cylinder fixed. When he saw for himself that the Cylinder was cracked he asked that a new one be installed. Several weeks later when the car was on the lift for other repairs he noticed that the original master Cylinder was still there despite the fact he had paid for a new one. The identifiable crack was still visible although it had been sealed and repainted. There Are also frequent reports of used parts sold As new ones. One car owner recently paid to have a new Genera Tor installed. Later when he checked with a competing garage he found that the so called new Generator was in fact a used one that had been repainted and installed.
