Honored For Handicapped
Job Training Program
Stephen Tinghitella, of 196
Boston Avenue, Massapequa, editor-
in- chief of Traffic Management
magazine, received a commendation
from the President's
Committee on Employment of the
Handicapped for initiating a project
to train the physically handicapped
as traffic rate clerks.
At a dinner meeting of the
Traffic Club of New York, a
mahogany plaque was presented
to Tinghitella by Harold Russell,
chairman of the President's
In a March, 1966 editorial,
Tinghitella had urged that traffic
groups train the handicapped
to relieve a shortage of rate
clerks. Encouraged by reader
response and convinced of the
need for a practical experiment,
he enlisted 20 executives in a
Traffic and Transportation Advisory
Committee for Employment
of the Physically Handicapped.
With help from the Manpower
and Development Training Program
of the New York City Board
of Education and the New York
State and federal government's
Departments of Labor, a ten-week
course got underway in February,
1968, at the Adult Training
Center in Jamaica, New York.
More than a dozen physically
handicapped trainees, recruited
by the New York State Employment
Service and screened by
Tinghitella, attended classes in
rates, tariffs and typing. Carrier
and shipper companies had
pledged jobs to almost all before
graduation, some in training
positions for managerial posts.
A second group of trainees concluded
the course in August, with
equally good job results.

High School, was honored by the Exchange Club of Massapequa at a
