Plight of Youth
In Rural Areas
The number of "older young peo
ple" in rural areas in Oregon be
tween the ages of 16 and 25 years
was approximately 75,000 at the time
of the last general census, about half
of whom were out of school and
unmarried. The situations, problems
and interests of these unmarried ru
ral young people have recently been
studied as a joint effort of the na
tional and state cooperative exten
sion service at Oregon State col
lege, and the mimeographed report
of the study issued by the United
States department of agriculture.
Bernard D. Joy, a former Jackson
county boy who is now agriculturist
at Washington, D. C, in the division
of extension studies and teaching,
and J. R. Beck, rural service special
ist at Oregon State college, are auth
ors of this first report ever made on
older rural youth in Oregon.
Eighty-nine percent of the out-of-school
youth in Oregon contacted
in the study had not entered their
chosen vocation. While only 29.4 per
cent of this age group are continu
ing in school, 68 per ent of the out-of-school
youth were high school
It has frequently been said that
the young men and women in this
age group had for the most part
passed beyond contacts with 4-H
clubs or Smith-Hughes work and
had not yet found places in regular
adult organizations. The extent to
which this is true was clearly indi
cated in the Oregon survey, where
it was found that although 65 per
cent of the young people interviewed
in this study had been members of
4-H clubs, only 10 per cent were
then associated with the extension
service, and 78 per cent of the out-of-school
youth had no member
ships in organizations except those
associated with the church.
The report is based on actual in
terviews with more than 455 young
people in representative f arming
areas in Tillamook, Lane, Clackamas
and Union counties.
MISS NORMOYLE TO WED
Miss Minnie Normoyle announced
her coming marriage to Mr. Howard
F. Grant of Seattle at an announce
ment party in lone Tuesday eve

ter, Order of Eastern Star. Miss

graduate of lone high school, the
intended bride studied music in New
York smumer before last and taught
one year before entering University
of Washington where she attended
last year. She is the niece of Mrs.
Lee Beckner of lone and Athena.
A call to drive carefully over the
Fourth of July holiday has been is
sued by Secretary of State Earl
Snell, who points to five traffic
deaths which occurred in this state
during the double holiday last year.
Observance of moderate speeds,
planning of trips which can be made
comfortably during the two -day per
iod, and avoidance of late night driv
ing are urged by SnelL
