He allocated $50,000,000 from the $4,000,000-000 work relief fund to assist 500,-000 needy youths obtain a good start In life. *T have determined that we shall do something for the nation’s unemployed youth becau.se "’e can ill afford to lose the skill ana energy of these young men and women,” Mr. Roosevelt said in a 'iHssage accompanying his executive order. “They must have their chance in school, their turn as apprentices, 8 J|^ their opportunity for jobs—a c^nce to work and earn for themselves.” The $50,000,000 will be spent during the next year for the following purposes: 1. To find employment in private industry for unemployed youths. 2. To train youths for industrial, technical, and professional employment opportunities. 3. To provide for continued attendance of needy youths in high schools and colleges. 4. To provide work relief upon projects to meet the needs of youth “The yield on this investment,” the president said, “should be high.” He appointed Aubrey Williams, assistant federal emergency relief administrator, executive director of the newest New Deal agency. Josephine Roche, assistant secretary of the treasury, w-as made chairman of a special executive committee to administer the program. The number of youths that will be benefited by the four phases of the program were estimated as follows ; Job training ............150,000 High school aid .........100,000 College aid .............120,000 Work relief .............150,000 Post graduate aid ....... 3,000 (All figures approximate) The president’s executive order defined youths to be reached by the program as "persons between the ages of 16 and 25 years who are no longer in regular attendance at a school requiring full time, and who are not regularly engaged in remunerative employment.” Among projects decreed by Mr. Roosevelt was a national census of youth between the ages of 16 and 25, the age limits of those who are eligible for benefits under the pro gram. The census will be corordl-nated with the unemployment census. Mr. Roosevelt said a national advisory committee and an executive committee, of which Miss Roche was named chairman, would assist the administration. The advisory committee will be composed of representatives of labor, business, agriculture, education, and youth. Both committees will be appointed by the president. The administration will be under general supervision of the works progress administration. “This undertaking will need the vigorous cooperation of the citizens tative group will be appointed to act as a national advisory board with similar boards of citizens in the states and municipalities throughout the country. On these labor boards there shall be representatives of industry, labor, education and youth because I want the youth of America to have something to say about what is being done for them. “Organization along state and municipal lines will be developed. The work of these organizations will be to mobilize industrial, commercial. agricultural, and educational forces of the states so as to provide employment and to render of the several states,” Mr. Roosevelt j other practical assistance to unem-said in his message, “and to insure ployed youth. that they should have an import- j "It is recognli^d that the final ant part in this w'ork, a represen- ■ solution of this whole program of unemployed youth will not be attained until there is a resumption of normal business activities and opportunities for private employment on a wide scale. I believe that the National Youth program will serve the most pressing and immediate needs of unemployed youth most seriously affected at the present time. “It is my sincere hoi>e that all public and private agencies, groups and organizations, as well as educators. recreational leaders, employers, and labor leaders will cooperate wholeheartedly with the national and state youth administrations in the furtherance of this national youth program.

WASHINGTON, June 26.— —(UP) — Describing his tax recommendations as a program for revenue and a better social • der, President Roosevelt em-pnatically said today that he wanted the three major features of the program enacted at this session of congress. No Kalurday Deadline The president told newspapermen there had been no intimation or suggestion from the White House that the three proposals be passed bv Saturday. Pointing out that failure to pass the nuisance taxes by Saturday would cost the government $1,500,- 000 a day, Mr Roosevelt retorted sharply that such a situation might not ari,se. Efforts of admlni.stratlon leaders in the senate to bring part of the tax program to the floor for debate today failed because finance committee and treasury experU could not complete drafting of the legislation in time. Senate leaders, however, still adhered to their plan of attaching the nex tax program to the nuisance tax exten.slon resolution even though it appeared highly unlikely that tha amended resolution could be enacted by Saturday night when the nuisance levies expire. 1 If the nulsancs tax extension were ----—^. ---------- I . ^ I passed separately, the Roosevelt ^ of COUft RuleS That Pierson * ixrogram wouW have to originate In board of the Aoiiene cnamoer oi hou.se.
