tribe seen
MANILA (AP) - The discovery
of a tribe of people living in
Stone Age style and cut off
from the outside world f o r
hundreds of years was an-
nounced yesterday by a Philip-
pine government agency.
The timid lost tribe, called
the Tasaday Manube and total-
ing no more than 100 persons;
was located on June 7 in the
Mindanao
rugged mountain forests of
Mindanao Island in the south-
The men who found it say
that "a study of the Tasaday's
ability to survive without agri-
culture, a metal technology, and
and permanent residences in a
tropical rain forest can pro-
vide one of the most fascinat-
ing chapters in the study of
primitive man."
The tribe is described as hav-
ing no knowledge of rice, corn,
salt, sugar or pottery; no con-
tact with the sea; and may be
"the only people in the world
today who do not know or use
tobacco."
The account of their discovery
was compiled and reported by
Manuel Elizalde Jr., head of the
Prasidential Arm on National
Minorities - Panamin - with
the collaboration of Dr. Robert
Fox, chief anthropologist of the
National Museum and director
of Panamin research.
Panamin announced plans to
study the Tasaday and asked
the government to declare the
area in which they live a re-
serve prohibited to ranchers
and loggers.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (P) -
Black Americans face a major
crisis of unemployment and un-
deremployment, Herbert Hill,
the labor director for the Na-
tional Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People
(NAACP), said yesterday.
"The rates of unemployment
among black youth have now
reached disaster levels," he told
delegates to the NAACP's an-
nual convention. "And if they
continue - and unfortunately
there is every reason to be-
lieve they will - then it is ne-
cessary to conclude that virt-

ually an entire generation of
ghetto youth will never enter
the labor force.
"Their only future will be a
marginal, alienated existence,
separate and unequal within
American society. This is the
legacy of racism and the re-
sult of past and present dis-
crimination."
Hill said that the employ-
ment problem is the single most
volatile factor causing urban
unrest "and holds explosive im-
plications for the future."
Hill said rates of unemploy-
ment for black workers in the
25 major centers of urban non-
white population are between
25 and 40 per cent. For black
ghetto youth, he added, the
rate will be over 50 per cent by
midsummer, far in excess of the
24.9 per cent general unem-
ployment rate among the na-
tion's workers during the de-
pression of the 1930s.

contracts worth $10,000 or more
with the federal government
come under federal laws forbid-
ding discrimination in employ-
ment.
The principal of job equality
was laid down by President
Franklin Roosevelt in an execu-
tive order in 1941, and five
other presidents have issued
them, But in that time, the con-
tract cancellation provisions de-
signed to give the regulation
teeth have not once been exer-
cised, Hill declared.
"The federal contract c o m-
pliance apparatus has become
a vehicle of bureaucratic dupli-
city and delay, that has led to
bitter frustration for black
workers and members of other
minority groups . . .
"The government has made
a mockery of the much vaunt-
ed contract compliance pro-
gram and is directly subsidizing
racial discrimination in employ-
ment to the extent of billions
of dollars of public funds,"
Hill charged.
He accused private firms and
labor unions with fostering this
discrimination and cited types
of alleged discrimination in the
steel, trucking and railroad in-
dustries.
Hill said so-called "home-
town" solutions to employment
problems are "a fraud." He said
the most significant example
was the Chicago plan, where
he said $831,737 of federal
funds were used to try to match
blacks with jobs. Fewer than
100 landed jobs although the
plan promised to place 4,000
black men in construction jobs,
he said.
