Weekly By ______________ Copy Carrier Youth Jobs Corps Asked In LBJ's War On Poverty EARLY SPRING VISITORS Even though they are no longer served as a substantial part of Eastern Shoreman's diet, old-timers still watch for the herring, to come teeming up the local creeks to spawn during March. An oily fish with millions of bones, the art of prepar- ing them for the dining table is rapidly dy- ing out. David E. (Cockey) Waller, Laurel, uses the old style bow net to dip a few roe (female) herring for his own use. He says there is little commercial demand for them these days, except among a few oldtimers, and a few gourmets who have taste for the roe. (Times Photo) Referendum To Be Sought On Anti-Bias Measure By HERB THOMPSON ANNAPOLIS ac tions of a special session of the Maryland Legislature, one posi tive and one negative, were sub jects of further deliberations to- day. Opponents of a new Statewide public accommodations law laic the groundwork for a referen dum petition drive which they plan to launch a soon as Gov Tawes signs the bill. They need only voter signatures, half of them by June 1, to stop the law and place it before the people this Novem- ber for acceptance or rejection. The negative refusal to reshape Maryland congressional districts to more nearly reflect population was to be discussed at a high level meeting in the Supreme Court Building" in Washington at 5 p.m. Federal judges irom Balti more, Maryland congressmen, the state attorney general and counsel for a citizens committee which sought the rsdistricting are to decide what should be done abcut the legislative inac- tion. Drafting of a new plan for congressional districts was the primary purpose of the four-day special session which began last Wednesday and ended one, min- ute before midnight Saturday. The Hrtise-passed trfeaTsfficT- ing plan 89-39 but it was bottled up in a 94 vote of the influen- tial Judicial Proceedings Com- mittee headed by Sen. Freder- ick C. Malkus, D-Dorchester.

H. Winship Wheatley, D- Prince Georges. Wheatley sought to force the congressional bill out of Mal- cus' committee and the chair- man opposed him with a bitter denunciation of the Democratic administration and a charge that the legislature had become 'a bunch of puppets and rub- ier stamps" for Gov. Tawes. Malkus had suffered a major the public accoinmodatiolis-'bil of locaTcption. Dor Chester, the scene 'of racial vio- lence at Cambridge last sum- mer, was one of the counties to be excluded. He said if Wheatley persisted in his motion to bring out the bill "you can have my resigna- tion right now." Malkus said the committee had not had time to study the bill in the sessico which was to end by prear- ranged plan at midnight. It had been received from the House that afternoon. He pounded on his desk as he talked and said the Democratic Party in Maryland was being severely damaged by the gov- (See LEGISLATURE, Page 19) By W.B. RAGSDALE JR. WASHINGTON (AP) -Presi- dent Johnson gave Congress marching orders today for the war on poverty, concentrating us attack on help- ing needy young Americans.'

If they, are hot helped then, many will be condemned to a life of poverty which they, in turn, will pass on chil- dren." The job corps would enlist up young men, draft re- jects-and school from "those w.h o s e background, health and education makes them least fit for useful work.." These young men would be removed their slum back- grounds and placed in camps' to work on conservation projects and in -special job training cen- ters for 'a blend of training, basic education and work ex- perience. Other phases of the youth program are work-training and work-study federal grants to provide full or part time jobs to help youngsters stay in'high school, take voca- tional training or work their way through college. .Coordinating the war on pov- erty will be a new executive agency, the Office of Economic Opportunities, which Johnson said would be headed by Sar- gent JShriver, "my personal chief of staff for the war against poverty." In addition to the Job Corps, Shriver also will supervise cre- ation of another new group, the Volunteers for America, a Peace Corps-styled body of 000 to volunteers who will work in various phases of the war on poverty. Both the Job Corps and the Volunteers for America are taken from legislation now sending in Congress the Youth Conservation Corps and the National Service Corps re- spectively. Other phases of the war on poverty asked by Johnson in- cluded: program of grants of up to 90 per cent for urban and rural community action pro- grams, where local plans were drafted to utilize all available community resources, public and private, to wipe out pock- ets of poverty. grants and loans to help boost the incomes of sub- sistence farmers. low interest loans for investments that will pro- vide jobs for low-income fami- lies or persons who have been out of jobs for many months, and also to small business not eligible for regular loans from the small business administra- tion. of a Welfare De- partment program to help train and find jobs for heads of fam- ilies whose children now 're- ceive payments under the aid to dependent children program. So far, a White House source said, selection standards have not been set up for the Job Corps, nor have detailed plans been made for setting up the camps and job training center. The source said many of the recruited for the Job Corps in the first year would come from the backlog of more than one million already reject- ed by the draft as physically, mentally or psychologically un- (See POVERTY, Page 19) Johnson Says He' II Push Rights By JOHN CHADW1CK WASHINGTON (AP) Pres ident Johnson, says he'll do ev erything he can to win passag of the civil, rights bill and pre diets the Senate will approv it "in due time" in its presen form.

Donable 'Free9 Food Costs Are Rising months of fiscal 1963-64, the costs of the program hit 539, an average of per month.

WRIGHT (Of The Times Staff) Free food to the needy is beginning to be costly to the taxpayers of Somerset County. And mere are indications that the costs will go up. Taxpayers are beginning to ask if all of the recipients are really needy. One raised the question when he observed a late model Cadil- lac pull up for a load. "The pay- ments are so high he has to have free was the ready comment. The so-called "donable foods" come from federal-surpluses. They've already been paid for once by government taxes through supports and subsidies. Somerset pays storage and dis- tribution costs.' WHEN THE PLAN began in Somerset 13 months ago, Little- ton T. Dryden, supervisor of the program, estimated the cost at annually. By the time the levy was struck five months later, cost estimates had risen enough for the commissioners to set aside for the program. Recently, Mr. Dryden re- vealed that the first year's op- eration had cost taxpayers 391 including the first couple of months when those receiving the foods still 'numbered few. Not long after the program began, county residents learned that ten per cent of the popu- lation was getting (he food. Then the program dropped from the public eye. Since then, the number re- ceiving the food has risen to as high as people or 20 per cent in May. At present people are getting it. DURING THE FIRST leven PICK UP BY CADDY. A late model Cadillac wat pfcttofnpfcd amopfi can tmen dtuMe fret -V in late 1962, Mr. Riggin with- held his vote. The reason, he said, was "because I haven't had time to study the effects it would have on our tax rate or get any realistic approxima- tion of the costs." The question of donable foods had been kicked around by the commissioners before, but came to a vote in late 1962 at the insistence of State Sen. Harry T. Phoebus. Sen Phoebus threat- ened to introduce legislation which would require the county to take the program. When Mr. Riggin with- held his vote, IM said, "This program can snowball to such extremes that we won't be able to handle it." AND SNOWBALL IT HAS. With about a million tax base in the' county, the pro- jected costs of the program would require that five cents of the county's tax rate be di- verted to the program. Either that, Mr. Riggin points out, or add five cents to the rate. Why don't the commissioners do away with the program? Since the number receiving the nokso-free food represents more tiian 20 per cent of the population, it could also repre- sent as much as 20 per cent of me county's voters. Anyone running for the office of county commissioner would have a difficult time getting elected if he were opposed to the program. He might have one-fifth of the voters against him from the start, a deficit, which would be hard to over- come. "That program's done some good, there is no doubt of Mr. Riggin said, "but 1 never dreamed there would be u (Continued on page 4) IN PERI NEWSPAPER! ;
