Pompidou, in a brief news conference, said: "We did not make decisions'.

In the past two years the registration of motor vehicles in the city of Los Angeles increased at a rate almost twice that of its population, according to the Dept of Traffic's "Traffic Statistics" report for 1972. The report shows that the average annual auto and truck registration in- crease was com- pared to an increase of in population.- Attains New Peak Ratio of city residents to registered passenger vehicles and trucks is now 1.78 to 1, or more than one auto or truck for every two residents, according to the report. Population data in the report show the city at- tained a new peak in 1972. An estimated persons reside within the city's 464 square miles. "Los Angeles is the largest city in the most populous state in the na- said S. S. Taylor, city traffic engineer. "If current trends continue, Los Angeles will become the second largest city in the nation by the mid- 1980s." New York City is now first and Chicago sec- ond. Increase Continued The report noted that California has more registered vehicles than the next highest state. Texas, which has -Los Angeles County exceeds each of 42 states and the city exceeds each of 24 states in the number of registered mo- tor vehicles. The report said that an- nual travel on the city's 6543 m iles of surface streets and freeways con- tinues to increase at about o n e-half billion vehicle miles per year. Total travel in the city on streeets and freeways, based on fuel consumption figures, reached vehicle mUes dur- ing 1972. This is the equivalent of 2000 trips around the world every day. During a three-year pe- riod freeway travel remained at a level of vehicle miles. Almost twice as many vehicle miles are clocked on city surface streets as are recorded on the city's freeways.

Youth Job Outlook Varies: Gloomy Here, Bright There By MICHAEL POLLOCK Employment prospects for youth in the Valley range from surprisingly good in some areas to in- credibly bad in others, and employers in those areas where youth em- ployment is down are being to hire more young people, especially during the summer when almost all youths will be available for work. The News learned from several different agencies con cerned with hiring that many more jobs are needed in the Valley for young people. The agencies, the com- munity Youth Employ- ment Services and the State Dept. of Human. Re- s o u r c es Development, stressed that the great majority of young people are out of work and look- ing for jobs. Many Need Work A few agencies maintain that the employment situ- ation seems to have taken a turn for the better. On the ether hand, Cur- tis Johnson, coordinator of the youth summer job program at the Pacoima HRD off ice, reported there are approximately 1000 to 1500 young'people registered for work in his office. Of that number, only about 45 have been placed on jobs, he said. This is particularly un- fortunate, Johnson said, because there are a great many young people in the Northeast Valley area who meet federal poverty re- q u i r ements and often need money to help feed CHAMBER MUSIC ensemble re- ceived first place Carolyn Gordon Mu- sic Scholarship Memorial Award, given by Arts Council of Califor- nia State University, Northridge.

Added to this problem is the fact that the Neigh- borhood Youth Corps pro- gram, which in the past has provided jobs for un- derprivileged youth, has been phased out by the federal government. Even though the NYC program has been dis- continued, a few programs have been developed by the federal and local gov- ernments to help insure jobs for youths meeting poverty requirements. Bob Reynolds, deputy associate regional man- power administrator, U.S. Department of Labor in Los Angeles, said the fed- eral government has allo- cated approximately to the city of Los Angeles, and about Hayes Hints at Collusion to the county from the Federal Public Em- ployment Program to sub- sidize jobs for those per- sons needing employment. city and county had the option of using that money for jobs for youth or for adult employ- ment programs.

T he Supervisor said, based on his investigation thus far, it "looks like somebody talked to some- body behind the scenes." Hayes said that this comment was sparked by an "unheard of practice" recently by oil companies where only one firm sub- mits a bid for local gov- ernment gas contracts. Notes Modification At a downtown press conference Friday, Hayes said he was "not very happy" to announce ac- ceptance of the bid, an, ac- tion reported by The News earlier, that repre- sents a cost increase. However, he pointed out that Shell Oil Co.'s bid, the only offer re- ceived by the county for its con- tract, was modified in the county's favor. And Hayes indicated that the county was under pressure to accept the bid because the city of Los Angeles, which received no bids on its contract next fiscal year, h'.d re- quested the offer if re- jected by the county. Bid Accepted Therefore, the county accepted the offer, but it is expected to pay more than additional for gasoline and other fuel next fiscal year as the re- sult of increases. In addition, Hayes an- nounced Friday that a bid by Standard Oil Co. of Cal- ifornia has been accepted to meet the county's diesel fuel demands next fiscal year. S tandard's offer, the onJy one received, is about Page 24 V Applicants in May Top April Total; Placements Up Valley offices of the State Dept. of Human Re- sources Development re- port that May for employment exceeded appreciably those filed in April.
