A report by L. ij. llolliiiger, the county's chief adminis-tralive officer, points out that 3,159 persons were assigned to the Community Work and Training Program during July. Hnilinger.sald that was the latest month for which complete figures have been drawn up. The ohject ol the program is not merely to put people lo work hut to train as many as possible in new skills. Three new projects are under study wilh this in view. "One of these," Hollliiger's report states, "Is of particular interest to the Board of Supervisors. It would use public assistance clients as crossing guards at school intersections." Also under consideration are enlistment of those on Bureau of Public Assistance rolls -as nursing aids and for mare complicated Jobs In road improvement. Initial projects involve street repair and cement svork, painting ol strccl and barricade signs, washing cars, flagman traffic control and fork lift operation. The crossing guard program is in the pilot stage. Two-other agencies are cooperating the California Highway Pa-ti-ol and the County Crossing Guard Activity Committee. That could save taxpayers dollars. "This program," tlallingor said, "will allow qualified recipients to supplement and reduce aid payments with actual earnings." The nurses' aid project gets under way Sept. 15 In Los Angeles Caunly General Hospital. This also will be a pilot program, bill it is different from must others in Uiat women will he used.
