Labor Commissioner Urges
Students To Finish School
"Go back to school and stay
until you graduate."
That was the earnest word
from State Labor Commissioner
Frank Crane as he urged Tar

"Don't short-change your own
future by putting immediatel
earnings from a job ahead of
your need to learn all you can,"
declared Crane. "Don't sell

to prepare yourself to share
fully in the great future that!
lies before us."
And to the parents of school
age children, Commissioner
Crane had this to say: "Quit
ting school to take a job is the
worst, decision" a young person
can' make . in today's complex
world. Educating all our boys
and girls to the limit of their
capacity is necessary ; both for
their own welfare and for the
