The effort to garner support among
minorities has had mixed results, but
e Labor Department obtained an en-
rsement late last year from 'the
National Association for Equal Oppor-
tunity in Education, which represents
144 historically black colleges and
universities. Black teen-age unem-
'ployment was 43.1 percent in February.
The National Conference of Black
mayors endorsed the proposal last
April with several stipulations, among
them that federal funds for summer
outh employment not be cut and that
adults not be displaced by youths ear-
ding the subminimum wage. At least
one conference member, Philadelphia
l'ayor Wilson Goode, has since with-
drawn his support.
eSome black ministers favor the
proposal, but the Rev. Jesse Jackson op-
pibses it, saying society should train
youth for more highly skilled jobs. The
National Urban League and other civil
ghts groups oppose the measure, as
does organized labor, which says sub-
minimum wage youths would be
replacing higher-paid adults.
-The proposal contains criminal
penalties against displacing adults with
low-paid youth, and Mark de Ber-
diardo, manager of labor law for the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said that
wouldn't occur anyway.
"The minimum wage went up more
an 45 percent between 1978 and 1981,"
said de.Bernardo. "The low-paying jobs
3-day bank closure
CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio Gov. Richard Celeste yester-
day ordered 70 savings and loan institutions insured by a
private company to close for three days after some reported
runs on deposits.
At least two institutions initially defied the order, but
closed their offices yesterday afternoon. Celeste's emergen-
cy order was welcomed by some, but caused confusion and
criticism at others.
"I think it was not only hasty, but entirely uncalled for,"
said Donald McKay, president of the Home Savings and Loan
Association of Youngstown, which is federally insured and
not affected by the order.
Regulators and industry analysts said they could not
remember such an extensive closing since the Great
Depression, but no one could immediately confirm that.
Celeste issued the order yesterday morning after
customers, alarmed by the closing a week ago of the Cincin-
nati-based Home State Savings Bank, camped overnight out-
side at least two other Cincinnati savings and loans to with-
draw their money.
The closings, until Monday, froze accounts at savings and
loans whose deposits are insured by the private, Cincinnati-
based Ohio Deposit Guarantee Fund. Ohio's approximately
125 state-chartered savings and loans protected by the
Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corp. were not affec-
In Columbus, Celeste and other state officials met
privately with Federal Reserve Bank officials in efforts to
obtain federal insurance for the 70 state thrifts.
"It's very difficult to talk about any details of that effort
because there are many tacks being undertaken
simultaneously," he said after the meeting. "What will
create confidence is to have these institutions reopen as
viable financial institutions. Our goal in that effort - if it's at
all possible -would be some sort of federal.insurance."
Celeste also said he could not guarantee the closed in-
stitutions would reopen Monday.
"I think it's a time when we need to take forceful action,"
Celeste said at a news conference at Cincinnati's Lunken
Airport where he announced the closings.
"Financial institutions really don't run on cash as much as
they run on confidence. There is no amount of cash delivery
in the end that will do the trick," said Karen Horn, president
of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, who accompanied
Celeste. "It must be a plan that will regain user confidence in
Michigan banking officials were monitoring the state's
savings and loan firms yesterday but said there was no in-
dication that difficulties which have hit Ohio's thrift in-
stitutions will affect this state.

day, writing a letter as she basks in the cool March sunshine.
Secretary Raymond Donovan, on leave
of absence since he was indicted in Oc-
tober, resigned yesterday after a judge
refused to dismiss fraud and larceny
charges and ordered him to stand trial.
President Reagan accepted the
resignation "with deep regret" and
said Donovan was "entitled to the
benefit of a presumption of innocence."
There was no immediate official
word on his successor. But an ad-
ministration source said speculation
centered on former Rep. John Erlen-
born, an Illinois Republican; Kay Mc-
Murray, director of the Federal
Mediation and Conciliation Service;
and James Miller, head of the Federal
Since Donovan's indictment, the
Labor Department has been run by Un-
dersecretary Ford Ford.
Donovan met with the president in
the Oval Office about 1 p.m. and
discussed his decision to leave, said
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes, after a New York state judge
rejected the secretary's bid to have the
charges dismissed on grounds the
prosecution was biased.
In a written statement later, Reagan
said: "Ray Donovan has not been con-
victed of anything; and no less than any
other American, he is entitled to the
benefit of a presumption of innocence.
While I agree with Ray that his need to
devote himself fully to his defense now
precludes his continuing in office, he
leaves the Cabinet with my friendship
and heartfelt gratitude for all of his ef-
forts on behalf of this administration.
Donovan was said by, an ad-
ministration source, who spoke only on
condition he not be identified, to have
concluded that he could no longer as
Reagan to show continuing patience,
and that he decided to step down in the
belief that only suce a move would be
fair to the president.
Dr. A. James French, professor
emeritus of pathology, dies at 72
After launching a clinical program in the University's
pathology department and serving as its chairman for 27
years, A. James French died yesterday at University
Hospital. He was 72.
Under French, the size of the pathology department
quadrupled and training programs for resident physicians
flourished, making it one-of the premiere departments in the
country. He retired in 1983.
"HE WAS in charge of the department during a substantial
growth phase when the department was taking on many new
clinical responsibilitie in the hospital," said Dr. Peter Ward,
ho succeeded French as chairman of the department.
"French also laid the foundations, and acquired the sour-
ces to start new research programs," Ward added.
French received his BS, MS, and MD from the University
of Coloraio and completed his residency in 1940 at St. Louis
Hospital. During World War II, French rose to Lieutenant
Colonel, serving on the Surgeon General's staff in New
Guinea and in the Phililppines.
FRENCH RECEIVED numerous awards and honors and
served on a number of professional societies and medical
center committees. He authored over 40 publications for
French joined the -University faculty as an assistant
resident in 1946. He was an active member of the American
Board of Pathology, and served as secretary/director from
1964-1972 and as president in 1973. From 1974-1979, he acted as
the board's first executive director.
Most recently, he was honored by the pathology depar-
tment with the opening of the A. James French conference
room last November and was presented with the American
Collge of Physicians Laureate Award.
French is survived by his wife Genevieve and daughter
Patricia. A memorial mass will be celebrated at 5 p.m. Mon-
day at St. Francis of the Assisi. Memorial contributions may
be made to the American Diabetes Association.
