The 'Bugsy' Fad "Bugsy Malone" suits for kids are about to invade Great Britain and possibly this country, too, if they sell abroad. Don't worry about the machine guns, though. They fire mere blobs of whipped cream. The outfits, however flared trousers, tight-fitting jacket and vest, all in pinstripe cost $27 each, and for an extra S3 you can buy the "Bugsy" felt fedora. The clothes are a version of the outfits Chicago gangsters sported in the 1920 s. Their design follows the film "Bugsy Malone," a British-made musical with a cast of 200 kids and starring 14-year-old Jodie Foster of Hollywood. The story tells of battles between rival New York gangs and the "splurge gun," which wipes out victims with blobs of cream. The man behind the fashion gimmick is clothier Ivan Green, who bought the production rights for the suits and is turning them out in his Yorkshire factory. Dutch Solution Half of Holland's unemployed are under 23 years old, and 60 percent of those youths who finished school this past summer are still without work. This drastic situation has led the Dutch government to take some innovative employment steps. The Minister for Social Affairs. aap Boersma. recently announced the creation of "duo-ohs." whereby two youths will be hired for each vacant position. "How they divide up the work is left to them and the employer." a ministry spokesman explains. Each youth gets half the wages and half the unemployment compensation, which is about 80 percent of the full wage in Holland. Employers will also receive funds from the government for setting up new jobs. Firms hiring 17- to 22-year-olds who have been unemployed for more than six months will receive a S250-per-month subsidy. In addition, the local governments are to get Si 8 million for a iob-creation program to help 2000 youths on a temporary basis.
