In a wide-ranging but gener-
ally uneventful news conference
last night, President Nixon call-
ed for a "national offensive"
against the use of hard drugs,
praised police handling of last
month's Mayday demonstra-
tions in Washington, indicated
his administration is re-eval-
uating it's position on UN
membership for the People's
Republic of China, and said
the United States would be pre-
pared in the near future to ne-
gotiate for "balanced" t r oo p
reductions in Europe.
Asked what he would do about
soldiers returning from Indo-
china addicted to heroin, Nix-
WM on said, "it is not simply a ques-
tion of Vietnam veterans; it is
a national problem."
He said his administration
hopes to move on the problem
on four fronts; cutting of f

In addition, he said emphat-
ically, "I can see no social or
moral justification whatsoever
for legalizing marijuana," add-
ing that it leads down the road
to hard drugs.
Asked about Soviet sugges-
tions for negotiations on mu-
tual troop withdrawals, N i x o n

VIOLENCE FEARED:
City plans may fai
to, handle job crisis

By MARK DILLEN
The hundreds of young peo-
ple who w ill be out on the
streets looking for work when
local schools recess for summer
vacation may just stay t h a t
way: out on the streets.
At least, that's what city of-
ficials fear will happen as they
contemplate the lack of jobs
for local youths and the lack
of city funds to do anything
significant about it.
While the past two summers
have been marred at times by
conflict between youth and po-
lice, despite the fact that May-
or Robert Harris' administra-
tion has always managed to al-
locate some money designed to
"cool" things o f f during the
summer, this year there will be
next to nothing and some offi-
cials fear the worst.
A small amount of money will
be spread o v e r the following
programs:
-The Neighborhood Youth
Corps program. This entirely
federally-funded program w i l1

provide jobs for up to 150 young
people in Washtenaw County.
Ann Arbor hopes to have 38 of
them employed in its city gov-
ernment;
-Ozone House programs and
related activities. Aside from
$6,000 the city has already
promised to give Ozone House
over the next year, a few thous-
ans dollars will be made avail-
able to Richard Hockman, who
is running a Summer Y ou th
Employment Program out of the
house. It will be geared towards
finding odd jobs f or younger
students; and
-A loosely organized job re-
ferral network initiated by the
city but essentially run by vol-
unteers. It will try to match-up
employers and young people
seeking summer jobs. Last year
the city found room for a $14,-
300 grant for a similar pro-
gram. This year, its replace-
ment will receive virtually no
money.
City officials blame the tight
situation on the problems they
