Right now the kids are in the stage of showing considerable interest, but they haven't yet committed themselves. Another month of work and they'd be dedicated and concerned students," said Foreman, a handsome, intense young poet and schoolteacher. The headquarters of People . . . Venice at 1510 North Washington Blvd., consists of two old storefronts which have been cleaned out and painted by the industrious teachers. As gathering places for young people go, People . . .-Venice is incredibly tidy and orderly, a direct result of Carter's theory that the kids themselves should be responsible for maintaining order. Number Swells Thirty -five students were originally scheduled for the summer session, but the number has swelled to 55. Stvcients are 14 to 17 years of age, and are still high school students. The teaching level at the center is based on in-school standards, and since all the students are from below poverty level homes, Carter and Foreman applied for and got a grant from the Neighborhood Youth Corps which pays the children an incentive of $1.27 an hour for four hours a day. "Technically, t h e y' r e only supposed to be here four hours per day, but they arrive two hours early in the morning and usually don't leave until well after dinner time.

The center has opened a small boutique to help pay the $1,000 a month rent, but the rest of the facility is turned over to classes, which are at best crammed and closely scheduled. Short of Goal On a raised bare stage built by a professional show business supporter, a group of kids are rehearsing a play written by the playwriting class called "Emanuel Manana," a surrealistic story about power which translates as "Christ Tomorrow." According to the writing instructor, Earle Eldridge, it is written in a special language a combination of English and Ghet, the language of the ghetto, which the students have dubbed Groovy English. While the rehearsal is under way, the dance instructor and her class are worming before seven haphazard - size mirrors. 3rd RECORD-BREAKING WEEK 1 B IN THSATRIS and DRIVK-INS EVERYWHERE!

A long scene of the play is ready for run-through, so all other activity stops while everyone watches. Considering there are nearly 40 students in the room, it is incredibly silent a necessity since David Garcia, a UCLA cinema student who came down to make a documentary and stayed to teach film-making, and his class are shooting the proceedings for a film version of "Emanuel Manana." Nearly all of the film was purchased with Garcia's salary and they are using his personal equipment. Outdoors behind the building and shaded by a portable wall, the music class is tooting away with considerable expertise on their own arrangement of "Sunny," while the instructor encourages them by patting heads and getting wandering fingers to the right part of the - BEVERlYADAMSPETER CUSHING PACIFIC DRIVE-INS LAUREL DRIN-Pacoima- 899-2588 STUDIO OR-IN Culver City- EX 8-8250 VINELANO DR-IN-CitvOf Industry E0 6-7518 VERMONT DR-IN - Garde na - DA 34055 COMPT0N OR-IN Compton NE 84557 WHITTIER DR-IN -Pico-OX 9-5297 PA 1-6131 Call Theatre or 0rive-ln for Show Times MATINEES MOST THEATRESI T en Paramount ME 3-4641 iomp.

Weekdays the center, without any funding from any agency, will invite 35 so-called hard - core high school dropouts in, hopefully to turn them soft and send them back to school. "We also hope to add an art class outdoors beside the music class. But the money situation, to say the least, is very tight. Right now we're begging. The EYOA grant is gone and probably can't be renewed. Synanon, along with the musicians union just gave us some reconditioned instruments, a good start.
