Wednesday, January 25, 1978 Wednesday, January 25, 1978 Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif.—15 By Jack Anderson Carter wants youth job training Son Francisco's cable cars WASHINGTON - We have ™ s wife - ^""a- to "remain an urgent message for the stron 8•" Th* ca P tors added a masked guerrillas who barged warning that the hostage into William Neihous' home in would die lf me P° llce or P ress WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Carter proposed Monday to expand the job and training opportunities funded in fiscal 1979 to about 2.5 million — a modest increase aimed primarily at young people. . Carter offered only two new initiatives next year in his long campaign to cut unemployment to 4 percent by 1983. Labor Department spending for jobs programs would rise to $11.4 billion in 1979, or 17 percent over the current year. This does not include an estimated 142,000 construction jobs that will continue to be available in fiscal 1979 as a result of $4 billion the Commerce Department spent this year for long-term local public works projects. The administration's economic forecasts were gloomy. Carter's budget was based on a prediction joblessness will go no lower than 6.2 percent at the end of 1973, 5.3 percent in 1980 and 4.4 percent in 1982 Unemployment fell substantially to 6.4 percent at the end of calendar 1977, when the economy created a record 4.1 million jobs. Carter credited his existing jobs programs for the improvement. The president created 725,000 public service jobs in fiscal 1978 as the backbone ol his jobs campaign. The new budget would continue to fund those jobs in fiscal 1979 at $6.3 billion, or 10 percent more. Public service jobs are provided by private business and municipal or state 1 governments with federal, funds. The average annual! wage is $8,600. Three youth programs including the Job Corps — would be expanded significantly next year. About $2.3 billion was earmarked for 1.2 million youth jobs under these programs, an increase of 47 percent. Youth joblessness is 19 percent, and about 40 percent among black teens. Carter, proposed no significant increase in the Labor Department's job training programs, but officials predicted a majority of these 430,000 openings also would go to youth. These programs were estimated to cost $2.3 billion in 1979. Carter's only new jobs initiatives for fiscal 1979 were: — An extra 50,000 public service jobs as part of a $125 million welfare reform demonstration project. The federal government will subsidize private jobs for the heads of low income families in certain areas if they fail to find work with extensive job search help. — An expenditure of $225 million to establish local labor-management councils to encourage new private hiring of disadvantages! and young workers. A 1980 version of an 1890 concept SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — They're talking about spen^ ding $10 million to modernize San Francisco's venerable cable cars — but they promise riders they won't notice it. The old open-air trolleys will still rattle up the hills, the operator clanging his bell frantically, as tourists and residents jump on and off. But, after the moder- nization, the cable cars should be safer, easier to run and easier to take care of. "We are going to keep the basic system," promises Rino B*>i of the Municipal Railway, who is aware of San Francisco's love affair with the old trolleys and the suspicions that are raised whenever changes are mentioned. "Modern materials should help make it work better. We want to come up with a 1980 version of an 1890 concept." The Municipal Railway, which runs the cable cars, has a $450,000 federal grant to study cable car problems, which result in frequent accidents and frequent shutdowns for repairs. Upon completion of that study, as much as $10 million might be spent to correct the problems — without changing anything that is visible to tourists. Some National Aeronautics and Space Administration scientists have suggested that a magnetiic tape be implanted in the cable splices. The tape would cause a buzzer to sound when a car goes over the splice, signaling the gripman to ease up on the handle briefly. This would cut down damage to the splices, the weakest part of the cable. Another idea from the NASA-Stanford University group is to use tiny rollers on the grip to reduce wear. Although the Municipal Railway promises cable cars will be unchanged in appearance, their complex underground apparatus is {mother matter. The engineers would like stronger and lighter steel parts, welded instead of riveted. They would like to line underground trenches with reinforced concrete, instead of wood. To make sure nothing is done, however, to intrude on the "special character" of these vehicles, a citizens advisory panel will be named to keep an eye on the changes. Among those certain to be nomimated to the panel is Mrs. Frieda Klussman, who is credited with stopping the city from discarding the cable car system in the 1950s as an inefficient moUe of transportation. Venezuela two years ago and carried him off at gunpoint, Niehous is an Owens-Illinois executive who has been held for political ransom by antigovernment forces. A grim, alive-or-dead question mark has hung over his fate ever since his handwritten appeals for ransom suddenly ceased in July of 1976. We became involved in the backstage effort to save Niehous' life 18 months ago. We were approached by an intermediary who suggested that the kidnappers would accept our intervention. We were directed to write a letter to Venezuela's President Peres offering to serve as an intermediary for Niehous' safe return. Unaccountably, the letter was ignored. We can now cite evidence that the American businessman was alive but still captive as late as March 1977. A new ransom offer, complete photographic were informed. But as a calculated risk, TCiehous intimates asked us to let the kidnappers know about the unfortunate foul-up. They are desperate to learn the fate of the missing businessman. Again, we are willing to serve as the intermediary if the kidnappers wish. We will meet them anywhere in the world. Meanwhile, a curtain of silence has fallen over William Niehous. RIGHT TO EAT — The most basic human right is the right to enough food to survive. Yet an estimated 500 million people go to bed at night hungry and undernourished. The birth rate, meanwhile, is steadily gaining on agricultural production. The number of malnourished people in the world, the hard core of human misery, is expected to reach 750 million by 1985. It seems obscene, therefore, taken between 11 million and 12 million acres out of production in order to keep wheat prices up. The farmers are not to blame. They cannot afford to sell wheat for less than their production costs. The United States has also been more generous than any other nation when it comes to feeding the hungry. Six million metric tons of U.S. proof that Niehous- 'was alive, ^ the u - s - government has was secretly mailed to an Owens-Illinois office in Europe last April. The company was warned sternly to say nothing to the police or the press. But tragically, the negotiations misfired through no one's fault. Not another word has been -.heard from the kidnappers. We have no alternative, therefore, but to make another attempt to com- wheat, stored on farms and in municate with the kidnappers 8 rain elevators, are now through our newspapers. Here's what happened. The Venezuelan guerrillas, probably unfamiliar with the European postal service, deposited their ransom offer in a seldom-used mail drop. Thus the packet showing Niehous still alive wasn't [found until a week later. Meanwhile, Owens-Illinois officials received several telephone calls demanding a earmarked for emergency use around the world. But impoversihed nations are alarmed over the U.S. cutback in wheat production. Agriculture Secretary Bob Bergland has been questioned by a number of agriculture ministers about this wheat set- aside program. He reported to President Carter recently that he has b.een "frequently asked blunt yes-or-no response to the whether, in light of the U.S. undelivered ransom demand. The puzzled executives protested that they had no knowledge of any ransom note. Impatiently, the woman caller hung up. The next day, she called twice again with a terse ultimatum that the company "agree or disagree" to the ransom proposal. The restrictions on wheat set- asides, there will be enough wheat to go around next year." Bergland told the president he was able "to reassure other countries that there is a record-setting wheat crop in the U.S. this year." But the world hunger problem will get worse, not better. Bergland believes the executives still had to plead developing countries would do ignorance. They ransacked ^tler to im P° rt u - s farming their offices searching in vain for some communication from the kidnappers. A day later, the caller was back on the line in an angry mood. "I know you have the letter," she declared. "What's the decision? I'm not going to methods than U.S. wheat. "One of the most difficult problems," he explained to the president, "is getting the producing countries to accept modern technology, even in its •simplest form." - CARTER'S SHOE BOX President Carter has been call again." A distracted official tried to persuade her directing his own lobbying the company was still in the campaign to push an energy dark. She hung up for the last M throu 8 h Congress. He has time. After it was too late, the packet belatedly arrived. It contained a poignant letter from Niehous to his colleagues and his wife, a menacing met personally with House Energy Chairman Thomas "Lud" Ashley, D-Ohio, and Ways and Means Chairman Al Ullman, D-Ore. Afterward, the president threat from his captors and ^structed E »ergy Secretary dramatic proof that he was Jame ? Schlesinger to consult still alive closely with the two powerful Enclosed was a picture of Chairmen. One Ways and him holding a newspaper Means member told us: "The clearly dated March 19, 1977.
