The Conference Board reports. were enrolled in the program and were paid slightly over $8000 in wages. The program was of fered in Arlington but there were no enrollees. Zimmerman said that "those eligible were either not interested or had other jobs." A gross income of $4,300 for a family of four would make a youth eligible for the program. A larger family could earn a larger salary and the youthcould still remain eligible. "It is a pretty big program," Zimmerman sald "and it takes a lot of work to screen the youths and place them in the jobs that are available." Zim- merman for that most of the youths had had a good experi- ence this summer. The jobs offered the youths gave them an opportunity for responsibility and Zimmerman believed that NYC was a good and productive ex- penditure. "We are going to have an in. school program durtngthe school year which will provide jobs for four students about 10 hours a. week." It is anticipated that the in- corny criteria will be raisednext year, thus giving more youths an oppolunity for jobs. It is also expected that the youths will not be limited to public agenclesbut will be able to be placed in pri- vate businesses requesting the services of the Neighborhood Youth Corps. line dividing Township 2 South and Township 3 South and East of the Range line dividing Range 24 East and 25 East--incumbent is Walter Wright.
