RALEIGH--Thcrc has been a significant decrease in *
admissions and runaways at the state's five training
schools for delinquent youth in the past few months. The
"schools are operated by the N, C. Department of Human w
Resources' Divisions of Youth Services. *.
"Since status offenders are no longer admitted to the
state's training schools, we are experiencing a decrease
in student population," said Robert Atkinson, assistant ?:
director for Institutional Services in the division. ?
From July through October 1977, there were 363 ?
youngsters admitted to the five training schools. For the
same four-month period in 1978, there were only 222 (

months, there has been an 80 percent decrease in the
number of students who run away. The schools, which
had previously been averaging around 30 to 40 runaways
per month, now average eight to 12 per month.
Jim Hunt added 54 cottage parent positions to the five
schools following the death of an employee at Juvenile
Evaluation Center and- alleged sexual involvement J
between students and staff at Stonewall Jackson School.
These two schools received the majority of new positions. _
NEW YORK-Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., president of the
National Urban League, has warned that the Carter
administration anti-inflation program will make poor and
working people bear the brunt of fighting inflation.
Jordan's remarks came during the NUI/s 22nd annual
Equal Opportunity Day Dinner.
44President Carter appears to be resorting to traditional
instruments of fiscal constraint," said Jordan. ,4That

"A black community already mired in economic ^
depression cannot sustain a fresh recession/' Jordan (
added, "America's cities, staggering under fiscal
(problems and physical decay, cannot withstand the
impact of another recession."
_ _ Jordan said, "The way to control inflation is through
full employment and full productivity^- And if sacrifices *
are necessary, they should be borne by those best able to *

WASHINGTON--Black candidates won major statewide c
offices in six states during the November election,
reports the Joint Center for political Studies.
Three blacks won statewide elections for the first time, J
including two appeals court judges, Richard Erwin of
North Carolina, and Harry A. Cole of Maryland, who had
earlier been appointed to the bench.
The third new official is Vel~R. Phillips, winner of the
Secretary of State's office in Wisconsin, the first time a
black ever won a state election there.
Re-elected were Richard Austin, Michigan secretary of
state, Henry Parker, Connecticut treasurer and Wilson
Riles, California superintendent of public instruction.
Eddie N. Williams, president of the Joint Center, noted t
the election defeats of Sen. Edward Rrooke^R-Mass.. Lt^ J
Gov. Mervyn Dymally, D-Calif. and Yvonne Braithwaite '<
Burke, the former representative who sought the
attorney general's office in California.
7 Williams said the losses "represent a loss of talented,J
influential leadership." '
"If there is one conclusion to be drawn from the election
results," said Williams; ''it is that the level of black 1
political participation must be increased in order to
protect the political interests of the black community." ^
"The election results, including the trend towards (
conservatism , provides additional justification for black
political and civil rights leaders to develop a national '
voter crusade," Williams added. '
