To 5 30 Friday Orin 9 pm by Louis Cassels Washington up a Sargent Shriver s office of economic Opportunity Leo has Learned that waging War on poverty is not a peaceful Pursuit. Since Leo went into business nine months ago it has been a constant target for controversy criticism and complaint. It has been accused of wasting Money. Neglecting the aged. Doing More for politicians than for poor people. Operating a disorderly House for wayward girls. And putting Ai a television program that demeaned the dignity of the u. S. Government. Some communities have complained because they did no to get Leo Grants. Others have complained because they did. Shriver feels Many of the brickbats heaved at the Leo Are undeserved. It was inevitable he says that some problems would crop up in launching the difficulties involved Shriver thinks Leo has gotten off to Quot a Good Start Quot in its first three quarters of a year during which it has Laid out three quarters of a billion dollars. Headaches for Shriver have developed primarily in connection with two Leo programs the most widely publicized difficulties have Arisen at some of the Job corps Camps and training centers where 13,000 Young men and women age 16 to 21, Are now enrolled. The first training Center for girls established in an old hotel in St. Petersburg fla., has been rocked by charges of immoral conduct for which the local chief of police said he could find no substantiation complaints from elderly residents about the no siness of the teen age students the expulsion of six girls for drunkenness and the resignation of two staff members one of whom complained that the girls were getting a paid vacation instead of Job training. The Leo also has been embarrassed by several incidents at Job corps Camps for boys including a Battle Between negro and White youths at Tongue Point Ore. The arrest of seven boys for sodomy at Camp Atterbury ind. And a gun and knife fight among enrollees at Lewiston Calif. In commenting on these incidents an Leo spokesman told up Quot sure there a been some trouble. What did you expect look at the kids we re dealing with a the most deprived youngsters in the country from big City slums and Backwoods villages. They re rough Tough misdirected youngsters who dropped out of school and can t get a Job. That a Why they were picked for the Job corps a because they desperately need a break. All things considered there a been surprisingly Little trouble at Job corps nearly half of Leo s funds Are channelled into Quot Community action the idea is that each Community should create a broadly representative Agency to work out an Overall plan for fighting poverty. The Federal government puts up 90 per cent of the Cost. In new York Chicago los Angeles and a few other big cities the initiation of Community action programs has been delayed by political squabbling Over who should control the spending of this Federal Money. Republican gov. Nelson a. Rockefeller disapproved of new York City a original setup on the grounds that it was designed to serve As a Quot political pork barrel Quot for democrats. After much wrangling and the governor s last minute veto of a Bill that supposedly had resolved the Issue the City finally came up with an organization which apparently satisfies Oeor a requirements for representation of All groups a including the poor themselves. Chicago has been embroiled in a similar Row. Critics charge that mayor Richard j. Daley a democratic machine is trying to use Cap funds As a patronage Bonanza. Los Angeles has received Only a fraction of the Community action funds tentatively reserved for it because mayor Samuel c. Yorty is resisting demands from Shriver to broaden representation on the Board that will control the program. Philadelphia also ran into Leo objections that its Community planning Agency did no to include enough representatives of the poor. It solved the problem by holding elections in poverty neighbourhoods to choose delegates to the planning Agency. The least Cratl clued Leo program has been Quot operation head Start Quot under which 560,000 Young children from poor families Are receiving pre school training this summer. Americans have taken Quot head Start Quot. A to their hearts like no govern a ment program in years. But even this popular undertaking has drawn at least one barrage of criticism. It grew out of the revelation that teachers pm a played at a head Start Quot centers in new York City were being paid at a rate of $8 an hour. A Leo officials acknowledged a that the new York pay scale is Way out of line with the a it tonal average of $4.50 an hour for teachers employed in head Start centers. They said they tried in vain to have the new. York pay reduced but were confronted with the fact that the $8 pay scale for summer work was required by a contract which the new York City Bourd of education had signed two a years ago with the Al Cio United federation of teachers. A number of organizations concerned with the welfare of older citizens went before the Senate subcommittee on the aging recently to protest that Oeor a programs put too much accent on helping Young people break out of the Cycle of poverty and offered relatively Little Ald to the aged poor. Perhaps the most vehement criticism yet directed at Leo resulted from its involvement in a recent television program entitled Quot its what a happen. Tog baby Quot in which leading Rock a Roll musicians participated in a 90-minute cacophony presided Over by a disk jockey known As Murray the a who assured poor youths that their government really cared about them. The program brought cries of outrage from members of Congress and no Small number of taxpaying citizens. The Leo stood by the program however and offered thousands of letters from Young people As evidence that it got through to the audience it was supposed to reach. Academic pressure fails with some student types by David by Dick up education specialist during the past ten years there has been a consistent increase of educational pressure on students parents and schools. There has been a demand for higher standards and improved programs. The result has been an upgrading of educational programs As Well As higher expectations for student performance. Is this Good for All students this certainly has had Many beneficial effects. A concentration on math and science has brought Many Fine improvements in these areas. The curriculum have been brought up to Date so that they reflect the needs of our present society. Improved methods of instruction Are now in use in Many schools. The higher expectations for Many students has been More realistic in relation to their ability. A student who does not have the Opportunity to participate in an interesting and challenging program might become Turbine truck revealed by Chevrolet Milford Mich. Up a Chevrolet today unveiled its Quot truck of tomorrow Quot a a Semi tractor trailer powered by a Gas Turbine engine. The Turbine could be in regular use in trucks by the mid-1970s, Chevrolet general manager e. M. Estes said. The new truck is called the Turbo Titan i. It is powered by a 280-horsepower Gas Turbine developed by the general motors research laboratories Estes said the truck corporate Quot space age styling to fibreglass and steel Quot and has fully contoured Quot astronaut seats Quot air conditioning a radio Telephone pm stereo radio and replaces the steering wheel with twin dials mounted on a panel to front of the Driver. The engine was described As a fifth generation Gas Turbine which represents More than 15 years of development. An identical version of the Gt-309 Model Turbine has been tested to conventional Chevy trucks for the past three years Estes said. As for the future he said Quot when our initial testing is completed we will consider putting it into a commercial Fleet for evaluation under actual trucking Industry operating conditions. Lazy and careless about his work. This leads to one of the problems which can result from an emphasis on academic excellence. In too Many cases the individual student is not considered. High standards Are Fine for those who can meet them. If a student cannot meet the standards he becomes a failure. He begins to lose Confidence and May give up trying.
