Moniana Report hits probation system WASHINGTON fAP) - Many convicts who return to crime while on probation slay out of jail because of overburdened state and local probation systems, z. congressional report says. Tlie situation poses dangers to the public because of the tendency of persons on probation to commit more crimes, "id the report issued Wednesday by the General Accounting Office. But the congressional auditors concluded that probation can be an effective rehabilitation tool when adequate supervision and such services as job coun^el- ing and drug treatment are provided. The report probably will fuel the current debate over whether any efforts at rehabilitating criminals, either through probation or prison programs, reaily work. The GAO analyzed the records of 1,200 p e r s o n s w h o h a v e c o m p l e t e d Housing bill gains approval WASHINGTON (AP) A S4.9-billion omnibus housing bill approved by the House would provide federal funds to local governments in areas hit by high unemployment. The b i l l , passed on Wednesday by a 332-27 vote, would provide $1.3 billion in aid to localities with high unemployment rates. The money would be used to carry out public works projects stalled b e c a u s e of e c o n o m i c problems. Community development funds would go to areas with unemployment rates of more than 8 per cent, if the national jobless rate is 6 per cent or more. The unemployment rate in April was 7.5 per cent. Neither of the chief sponsors, Reps. Garry Brown, R - M i c h . , n o r J o h n LaFalce, D-N.Y., could estimate how many jobs would be created by the $1.3 billion public works section. The Senate has also passed its own housing bill.

Seattle, Portland, Ore., and Phoenix. Ariz. The auditors found t h a t 45 per cent of the 1,200 persons were conv'cted for new crimes while on probation. About half remained on probation despite the new conviction, the report said. Of the 200 offenders now on probation, nearly half were arrested for 218 new crimes including robbery, assault, sex offenses, burglary, theft, and drug and alcohol violations. Some 74 were convicted of 126 new crimes, and all remained on probation, the report said. In the four cities, 77 per cent of all convicted felons in 1974 were placed on probation rather than being sent to prison. The agency initiated the study as part of its long-range effort to evaluate the effectiveness ot iederal law enforcement programs. The Law Enforcement Assistance Administration should provide national leadership, more technical assistance and more money to help improve state and local probation systems, the auditors recommended. But they said many problems must be solved locally, particularly by legislators who control the budgets for probation services Richard L. Fogel. an assistant GAO director, said the conrlusions reached from the four-city study applied across the nation.
