A cooperative project to pro- been conferring with legislators
vide luncheons for youngsters in low-income areas this summer was outlined for the Salvation Army advisory board by Major Eugene Adney at the board’s meeting Thursday.
The board earlier had approved initiating the project which got under way this week in cooperation with HACAP.
The United Way budget panel, headed by Marshall Hardesty, jr., also approved the project which has a goal of providing lunches for IOO youngsters daily.
“Most of the cost is being underwritten by HACAP with the Salvation Army Corps Center serving as the luncheon site and with army personnel responsible for preparation of the meals,” Major Adney said. He said the Salvation Army men’s social service center also had cooperated in helping obtain quality food at low cost.
The project also will involve preparation of some sack lunches which will be delivered to playgrounds by HACAP personnel, Major Adney said. HACAP took the initiative for the program and also assumed the responsibility for screening and selecting children eligible.
The project started this week and will continue for IO weeks.

The memo, one of two prepared for several Democratic members of the house judiciary committee by William Dixon, staff attorney, discusses what it says are discrepancies between the edited public transcripts and the actual tapes.

Dixon was ordered Thursday by Chairman Rodino not to prepare any more reports.
