The National Economy is now expanding significantly. This makes the Success of the stabilization program More important than Nixon said adding the program will succeed the american people continue to give their full As evidence that tougher controls May be needed How Ever sources revealed that the commission is debating to put a 3 per cent ceiling on Price increases for Many Large service industries. The proposal is now under study by the commission s staff. No decision is expected for at least a month. Services such As Barber shops and restaurants that perform services for customers As opposed to Corn a Nies who manufacture goods becoming a steadily bigger part of the Economy. Because they Are labor intensive the prices they charge Are based much More on wage rates than the Cost of materials. In the past three months service prices As recorded by the consumer Price Index Rose at a 3.7 per cent annual rate Down from the previous Quarter but not far enough to meet our a commission spokesman said. Since the Council already has exempted most companies with fewer than 60 employees from the controls Many Small service firms would not be covered by the proposed regulation. In Addi Tion a commission source said restaurants would be. Excluded because food prices Are so High they could t live with the 3 per cent services construction firms insurance com Panias and state and local government agencies whose activities already Are specifically monitored by other parts of the control program Aiso would be exempt from the new Rule. A source said the non restaurant operations of most hotels and admission prices of Large theatre chains would be included.

The increasing number of Auto repair shops attached to Large department stores prob ably would be covered by the Rule but garages with fewer than 60 workers would be exempt the spokesman said.

Turn to Page 2, col. 1 Broughton local Federal Job program looks successful by John Pacht Neft Fremont a Federal program creating jobs for the unemployed with the City the school District and Omone College has All the earmarking of a Success at least initially. Though no one can say at this Point whether any of the 29 new positions created will be permanent and whether con Gress will renew its funding via the emergency employment a sea a year from August when it is presently sched. Used to expire City officials who Are overseeing the program appear satisfied. Late last year the program has enabled the City to hire 15 new employees Many of whom Are Street and Park maintenance men the school District 10, All but one of whom Are teachers aides and Chlone College four three clerk typists and a groundsman custodian. The City s new personnel director Thomas Pratt who has been directly involved in similar programs at his former Post in san Jose is in direct control Over the funds for the program in All three think there s a Good says Pratt that the funding will be extended in one Way or another when the time school District and Chlone officials also look Forward to retaining Tasir new but temporary employees but the official policy at the City still stresses the temporary nature of the positions and encourages their occupants to keep looking for permanent jobs. According to City administrative Aid Douglas Eads Many of the new employees were put into the Street and Park labourer category because the work needed to be done and because there is a better than average Chance to work into permanent jobs in this a number of criteria Are used to qualify a Job seeker under the program including requirements for a proper bal Ance of veterans and members of ethnic minorities. The main Factor however is simply being unemployed or in the Federal poverty category. Bad says that the supervisors of the new employees in the City were suspicious at first but adds they Are generally satisfied and Happy with the program now. An important element in the program s Success so car emphasizes Pratt is that the employees get their paychecks from the agencies hat hired them and not from the Federal government. Thus he says the employees develop an allegiance to their employer when i was with the City of san Jose we had one program like this where checks came from the government and another where the checks came from the he says. The level of work accomplished was much lower for those who received their checks from the one of the advantages of the program bad emphasizes is that even of it runs out those hired will have acquired skills that will give them better Opportunity to be hired in a sense that is what the program is doing for George 26, the highest paid of the City s sea employees. Mcbride has a degree in filmmaking end seme Back ground in City planning from san Francisco state College and has worked off and on for the City for soul the last five he was hired at Par month As a City p Anner and taking heed of the City s this is temporary Only warnings is looking for a More permanent position. The main advantage of the Job Mcbride concedes is the to Mary Whitemyer 51, who had been out of work for three months her secretarial Job in the City manager s of fice Means both Money and background. It would be she says if it became a permanent but she is a so looking for permanent work else where. John Estrada a 25-year-old teacher s aide at Hopkins Junior High school wants eventually to be a teacher and his position not Only gives him experience to Ward that end he says but also could develop into a permanent position for him. Wess Peterson personnel director for the Fremont unified school District expresses some optimism that the new aides will be since District officials Are looking Forward to extending teachers aides irom their present Posi Tion of working primarily with either gifted or handicapped students. I d been out of work for iwo says Darlene Bur Nap another teachers Aid hired under sea. Mrs. Liar Nap 34, a teacher with out of state credentials has no idea whether her Job will be and therefore is actively seeking other on of which is librarian work with the school District. None of 4hc new employees can be certain at this Point that his or her position is anything More than temporary. They Are certain however that a temporary Job and its Chance to learn new skills is a substantial step Forward
