The purpose of the Youth corps, they say, is to keep youngsters in schools or persuade them to return when they drop out. Those over age who will no longer be accepted, will be encouraged to enter other Labor Department training programs, particularly the job opportunities in the business sec-lion program the National Alliance of Businessmen, There, Ihey will be trained for jobs in industry. Some local neighborhood Youth Corps administrators feel that the age cutoff cripples the job placement aspects of the program and reduces 11 to supporting 16 and 17, year olds for whom they cannot find work. The Neighborhood Youth Corps is a "work experience" program which funds summer employment, year- round in-school employment, and out-of-school employment for youths, age 16 through 21.

Thieu knows Nixon is determined t de-Americanize the war, ana Thieu will be probing at Midwaj to find out just how far the Unit ed States is willing to go to do that. Thieu recently threatened to 'ight on alone rather than ac- cept a coalition government in Saigon, and during his visits to Seoul and Taipei he said he vould not even talk about a coa- ition government when he gets o Midway. Nixon's peace plan doesn't specifically call for a coalition vith the National Liberation 'ront, but its provision for free elections inevitably would brinj ome form of NLF participation n electoral planning and proc- esses.

American commanders claimed some smashing victo lies along the Cambodian bor- der northwest of Saigon, includ- ing a night-long battle in which 213 North Vietnamese soldiers were killed and only two U.S. soldiers were wounded. Despite being outnumbered more than 10-to-l, field reports said U.S. forces repelled the regiment-sized attack with artil- lery, bombers and helicopter gun ships bringing heavy fire on the enemy. Military spokesmen reported 63 rocket and mortar attacks overnight on bases and towns, including Da Nang, South Viet- nam's second largest city. The U.S. Command said ualties. and damage from the shelling were light. The new upsurge in enemy ac- tivity, which began Thursday night, has been linked to Sun- day's conference on Midway be- tween Thieu and Nixon. Military analysts described it as a continuation of attacks that periodically reach a high point of intensity aimed at "influenc- ing the political situation" and making an impact at the time Nixon and Thieu and their ad- visers are holding key strategy talks. While U.S. and South Viet- namese forces had their hands full in fighting along the corri- dors leading from Cambodia to Saigon, a new threat appeared !o be developing along the de- militarized zone.

And some critics of U.S. Viet? nam policy have voiced doubts about the usefulness of the meeting. Sen. J. W. Fulbright, chairman of the Foreign Rela- tions Committee, said, "The meetings President Johnson had didn't result in anything signifi- cant." Troop level discussions raise the question of troop withdraw als. And Nixon promised in his May 14 speech outlining an eight-point peace plan that there vill be no unilateral American withdrawal. But the word from Saigon is Hat Thieu expects Nixon to iush for de-Americanization of 16 war. Furthermore, ary of State William P.

Brezhnev's speech, broadcast by Moscow radio shortly after it was delivered, was the most bit- ter attack on China to come from the three-day-old confer- ence so far.

There was no immediate word on the reaction of Romania and other parties to Brezhnev's "re- ported attack on Red China. They objected Friday to other parties' criticism of the Mao Tse-tung regime.
